Jeremy Proffitt

Do you love CiviCRM, but get frustrated when it doesn’t work the way you want on the front end in Joomla? Have you wanted to allow users to manage their organization’s users and events without having them navigate the administrator? Are you using Bootstrap, but jumping through crazy hoops to make profiles and listings work with your responsive template? This session describes how the CiviCRM and core methods and be used to provide data to Joomla core and third-party extensions. Joomla core libraries including JForm and JLayout can be used to further customize the way content from CiviCRM is accessed and managed on the Joomla front-end. We’ll also share some vision on how this may be included in upcoming versions of CiviCRM.

Covered Topics:

  • Displaying a contact list in a module from one or more groups or tags with custom layout
  • Implementing a custom layout for proximity search results
  • Building a form from a CiviCRM profile using JForm
  • Creating a custom router to improve SEF URLs for CiviCRM search results and contact profiles
  • Allowing front-end management of relationships and permissions for an organization and it’s related contacts
