Dear all, as announced in the report of the Fundraising Summit in June Holger from Wikimedia Sweden visited me over the last weekend. Wikimedia Austria paid for his travel.
Wikimedia Sweden has a very sophisticated setup of CiviCRM on top of Drupal, (mis-)using CiviCRM for their bookkeeping and using the tools of CiviCRM in conjunction with their own modules to handle fundraising and membership management, beyond the regular features of CiviCRM. After I have implemented the newest version of Drupal and CiviCRM for Wikimedia Austria we meet now to upgrade WMSE's code to work with the new Drupal and CiviCRM versions, make it more versatile to be used for other chapters and enhanced it. We spent 2,5 days of hacking and coding. The good news are: All modules now work with Drupal 7 and CiviCRM 4. We also managed to re-write big parts of the code, made it more modular and internationalised. Many settings have been moved outside the codebase and have been made configurable. The Donation module has been rewritten completely and got its own module interface so we could move code for payment providers into sub-modules. So far we support Payson and Direct Debit. Payson is fully functional since today, so making a Paypal module is very easy now which I will do as soon as I have received the details about the Paypal account of Wikimedia Austria. We got commit access to the Subversion repository of Wikimedia Foundation, so all our work is available online and can ge used and enhanced: http://svn.wikimedia.org/viewvc/wikimedia/branches/wmse_civicrm/ There are still some open issues including bug reports to the CiviCRM developers. The remaining work will take about another 2,5 days I guess, finishing up some data that needs to be inserted once a donation or a membership renewal is done, fixing regular donations and creating the Paypal module. Your help is welcome, all we need are one or two skilled PHP programmers... we have already done our task ;-) /Manuel -- Regards Manuel Schneider Wikimedia CH - Verein zur Förderung Freien Wissens Wikimedia CH - Association for the advancement of free knowledge www.wikimedia.ch _______________________________________________ http://wikimedia.ch Wikimedia CH website Wikimediach-l mailing list https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikimediach-l
