Hi,

For our website, I would like to have a protected part which is only to be viewed by our church members. However, I also would like to be able to generate actual address lists and even to be able to emial one or more of those members.

So actually what I am wondering is: Is it possible to connect/integrate the directory with the Wordpress user registration feature?

If not, Are you planning to do this?

Cheers,
Eric

Hi
I would be very interested in this for a couple of church sites I am working on.
If you need a tester, happy to help (software testing is what I do for a job)

Regards
Gary

Sorry... My project stood still for a while.
However, picked it up again 😉

Great to hear you intend to to this.
While trying to be not too pushy on you (better call it eager to use), any idea on a estimated release date for this?

edit: I notice I started this under a different user id. Sorry . Appearantly forgotten I registered already.

Hi,

Installed the current version.
When I add new users, and generate a wp-user with it, wp sometimes only gives a white screen.
When entering 1 user the username generated conained spaces, with another one username was e-mailaddress. AmI doing something wrong?

Great, thnx.
Can it also be possible to define your own id for new users?
Sometimes teenagers don't have their own mailaddress yet (not all parents permit that) but do need to logon to see a roster or so. So I'ld like to me able to create logins based on 2 or 3 characters of the first name and 2 or 3 characters from the last name. That should unique enough.

Cheers, Eric

I think that the creating wordpress users section is fixed now - please let me know.
But wordpress is pretty picky about creating users though - they have to have a unique email address, so they will have to share their parents login.

You can create users yourself in wordpress and all the plugin functionality will work for those users!

Hi Andy,

Been a while again.
Am trying to set up my church inside the plugin the way you said. So I created the wp users first. Then imported them in CA.
Then when I edited the first one, I got errors when saving.

Household Details

Add someone

Warning: array_key_exists() expects parameter 2 to be array, string given in /home/deb51366/domains/nieuwleven.net/public_html/wp-content/plugins/church-admin/includes/directory.php on line 558

Also , what is the difference between a mambertype and a ministry?

Cheers, Eric

And how can I put existing users together in a household or add a new user to an existing household?

When you say "user" do you mean "wordpress user" or just adding someone to a household the directory?
Either way, that can be added easily

Both I guess. All WP user are churchmembers. I don't mind if children already have an account 😉 But primairily church-admin members. However, when someone is a member as child, of course later on they need to be added as wp user some day nonetheless. Little children grow up, so the children of now are the ministers of tomorrow 🙂

Also recently we had a wedding in our church. people from to households formed a new one.

Same goes for a household where babies are born. Households are organic, they grow and shrink.

is there a difference between Mailing List and Members? And in terms of displaying them on a page, does it matter?

ehout: I'll work on adding users and merging households etc.
You can add, edit and delete people within a household easily. What needs adding in to the plugin is the ability to merge households!

desteele: "Mailing list" and "Members" are two default member types - you can have as many member types as you like.

We use "Mailing list" - for people just interested, "Visitor" for people who have come once, "Regular attender" for regular attenders and "Member" for members - the usefulness of member types is when sending out emails - as you can choose member type by checkbox you target who emails who goto. For instance a Christmas carol service gets sent to all member types, a members meeting to just "Members" etc. Hope that helps!

My primary use for the plugin is to generate a list to display via a Wordpress page...but the only shortcode for that pulls from the Mailing List roster. Does that matter? Doesn't seem like it should, but then they aren't on the Member list.

Hmmm... Can I add an existing user to a household already? Then I am overlooking it. Can't find it, sorry.

Any direction on how to do that?

The "import users from wordpress" link in the directory section will add wordpress users to the directory that aren't already in. But it creates a new household for each user.

I'll add in some functionality to merge households, move people from one household to another in the next release. It'll be a few weeks away as there are some other good features being tested at the moment!

ehout- the new code for testing is on github in the development branch
https://github.com/andymoyle/church-admin/tree/development
Backup db first as rota table is changed.

Still a bit buggy
1 admin page toggle/open & close not being remembered
2 Rota is not remembering non db stored entries when using autocomplete

Moving people to a different households is accessed from a person's "Move" link on the display household page.

Will update wordpress repo when we have ironed out the bugs
#2 needs to use autocomplete more simply I think to be fixed.
#1 can't get my head round it!

Ironically bug #1 is fixed, just got to sort #2 before we make it live update.
