As Pradeep implies, this isn't a CiviCRM issue but a web browser configuration issue. I'm not sure what web browser you're using, but in Firefox, when I click on a PDF in an activity (see "1" below), I get a pop-up where I can select "Open With" (2) and "Do this automatically for files like this from now on" (3). I imagine similar options exist for all the ...

Yes, it did happen and it's called the "attachment" api. You can look up the docs for it in the api explorer:

Welcome to SE! Yes, you can import the relationship at the same time. The documentation describes your situation here. This is based on one row per child with parent details in the columns. You import once for child, mother, relationship and once for child, father, relationship. Check that your default dedupe rules work for the parent fields you are ...

To view pdf rather downloading locally you will need to install a PDF preview "add on" in Chrome. Or you can turn off PDF download from chrome settings Navigate to Settings >> Advanced >> Content Settings >> PDF Documents. Turn off 'Download PDF files instead of automatically opening them in Chrome'. HTH Pradeep

This is caused by a bug that prevents users that configure multiple languages to use the kcfinder plugin. So check if there are more available languages are configured at https:////civicrm/admin/setting/localization?reset=1 Restrict it to one, and try again. At the moment a patch is available at https://github.com/civicrm/civicrm-core/pull/19245. And the PR ...

You missed a param to that function. The 4th param is attributes, which you can pass as an empty array, and the 5th param is required, which you can pass TRUE.

This is an excellent question, and it has more to do with how you want to use your data than with the technology. Most CRM experts will tell you that the "right" way is to make the husband and wife each into their own contact, and create a "spouse" relationship between the two. You could also consider using "address sharing" so that updating one address ...

Might justify developing a script or extension? The column uri in the database table civicrm_file seems to refer to these. The table civicrm_entity_file then links civicrm_file records to other existing entities. The column image_URL in the table civicrm_contact, on my transplanted legacy installation at least: in some cases contains absolute URLs that ...

welcome to CiviCRM Stack Exchange! In CiviCRM there is an option in the Contributions menu called "Import Contributions". This allows you to upload contributions from a CSV file. Can you give that a try?

This isn't fixing the root issue, but I tend to think the best practice here is to load media within the Wordpress Media Gallery and link to it in CiviMail. Content is best put in the CMS. That way, you can use the media for say a blog post and for CiviMail. It's more efficient. I think some day being able for Civi to query the WP media gallery would be ...

Judging from the whitespace you've found in the images 'code' this is the same issue as another I've had regarding contact images not working and Mosaico images not working so I'm just going to copy most of an answer from another question that I answered which the same fix: So I've found this issue is due to a rogue module or theme in Drupal that has ...

Which of the various Print/Merge windows are you using - ie what steps do you take to get to that window? (Similar-looking print/merge windows use different code so the functionality is not consistent.) It sounds like you are doing the right thing - ie create a Word doc with the tokens and upload it. Do you mean that some of the tokens work, or none at ...

There's two different things: Mail Merge, which is a native feature of word. Print/Merge document, with output as a word document, which is a feature of CiviCRM. (I'm not sure it has the ability to "upload" a word document. If it does I'm not familiar with it, but see below.) For the first one, you would want to do a contact export in csv format, and then ...

I am not sure if I understood this correctly. Instead adding participant count limit to price field i would use Event setting to define maximum participant count. I would create two required price field option of type radio Fix Deposit Event ticket fee Define max count to 15 in events Info and Settings. To support partial payment on Event fee you can ...

In the latest version, if you customize civicrm/file link to have download=0 query string parameter in it, the file will be opened in a new tab instead of downloading. For eg, if the URL is https://site-name/civicrm/file?reset=1&id=400&eid=622&fcs=<file_hash> Adding download parameter will open the pdf/image in the new tab of the browser. ...

You can use relationships to tie the parent(s) to the teen. https://docs.civicrm.org/user/en/latest/organising-your-data/relationships/ Here is some information on importing relational data on this page. Just scroll down about 3/4 of the way down: https://docs.civicrm.org/user/en/latest/common-workflows/importing-data-into-civicrm/

If anyone still has this problem, I can confirm that upgrading to at least 4.7.31 fixes it.

What is the field type of the custom_133 field? I'm guessing it is an option group/ select list type of field. In that case, you would have to make sure that the value of the field you are supplying in the import matches to either of the option values that the field has. HTH, Edsel
