That the "configure options" menu item works as expected doesn't surprise me. That page is rendered completely differently from the pages that aren't loading. In a way this is good news. It confirms that my original questions were on track. You need to check your extension resource URL and look for JavaScript errors. Either could be the cause of your problem.

There is information about setting the extension resource URL on the wiki. Look for the first paragraph after the green boxes.

Here's a post that collects troubleshooting tips for JavaScript-related problems. In particular see the "Troubleshooting Tools" section.
Francophone User Group / Joomla Upgrading from 4.7.10 to 4.7.11
« Last post by William Bailey on September 22, 2016, 11:38:22 am »
I am trying to upgrade from 4.7.10 to 4.7.11 in a Joomla site.   My attempt announced success.   But when I attempt opening Civi, my roster is blank.   No Civi desktop.   
I had downloaded   In the instructions provided by Civi at , I read the lines:  “Upload  this file to JOOMLA_ROOT/tmp/.  Unzipping will create a directory called: com_civicrm.”    The Civi instructions are attached below. 
When I copied the downloaded file to a directory in my PC (in advance of FTPing to my server files), an unzipped com_civicrm appears in my PC as a subdirectory to the copied civicrm-4.7.11-joomla. 
Do I  upload com_civicrm or the   What file is "this file"?
I am sorry if I am being naïve, but I did something wrong and I believe it will be resolved partially by clarifying what this file is.


Extensions / Re: Applying discount codes to memberships in Civi

Hi Matthew,

This forum is no longer the right place to ask these questions - it's better to ask on Stack Exchange (

However, to answer your question - can you say more about what's missing from the current discount code usage?  It sounds like you may want the "Organization" field on a discount code to be applicable to individuals.  Is that the only change you'd need, or is there more?

Please post your question with the added detail to Stack Exchange!
Extensions / Applying discount codes to memberships in Civi
« Last post by mdlcc on September 21, 2016, 09:08:10 am »
Hi everyone

We're implementing a staff recruitment drive and want to provide a 'discount code' that can be given to a staff member to distribute to family and friends. The idea is that the new member gets a discount and the staff member can earn rewards according to the number of members recruited.

I've been investigating CiviDiscount and although the discount functionality works OK, being able to track discount code usage seems to be a bit trickier. Is there a way of reporting on code usage other than other from the Administer Discounts page or does anybody know of a solution other than CiviDiscount that would provide the functionality we need with better reporting?

Any advice would be gratefully received!

4.7 Release Testing / Re: Volunteers not working since 4.7 update

Thanks very much for responding Frank.  I'm not sure of the answer to the first two questions as I don't know how to check that. If you can point me to any resources for finding out how, I will do that. 

In answer to the last question, you are correct, the specific volunteer tab is not working correctly either.  New Volunteer Projects, Manage Volunteer Projects, Volunteer Interest Forms and Search for Volunteer Opportunities all just take you back to the CiviCRM home page.  Funnily enough the configure options under this menu do work correctly though.
Hi All
Is it possible to add to the Communication Preferences in contact profiles? At present we only have 'NO BULK EMAIL' (USER OPT OUT) we would like to create 'NO BULK EMAIL (ADMIN OPT OUT) or similar. Is this possible? We would rather not remove them from the various tags and groups as this is useful info for us.
Thanks in advance.
There is a SPAMMER who keeps reposting to the CivCRM Wiki, and I don't see a way to report this user.      They keep adding pages with the title:
Call H.e.l.p.d.e.s.k ¶¶¶¶.. (( ¶¶¶¶ Q.u.i.c.k.b.o.o.k.s© E.n.t.e.r.p.r.i.s.e s.u.p.p.o.r.t n.u.m.b.e.r canada, Q.u.i.c.k.b.o.o.k.s h.e.l.p.l.i.n.e p.h.o.n.e n.u.m.b.e.r US.
Curieux comme résultat, mais c'est une table temporaire, donc aucun problème à la convertir manuellement ou même la supprimer.

J'ai fait ce test et la seule table qui m'est renvoyée est
C'est une table que j'ai dans un site de test monté sous Drupal alors que j'utilise pour l'heure une implémentation sous WordPress.
Je vais exporter l'ensemble de ce test et le supprimer
Le moteur par défaut de mon serveur est InnoDB
