2016-04-18 Toolkit second meeting
- Michael McAndrew

Different approaches were discussed for revamping the project of having international sites as part of CiviCRM project:
1 - Sections inside CiviCRM.org
Having sections inside civicrm.org website with a landing page per country and pointers to some common areas like blog, partners.
2 - Individual Micro sites per country
This was the original approach, working on tools to help partners to create, host and maintain local sites per country.
3 - Multisite for international chapters
One Drupal multi-site web which will be used to create sites per chapter with common assets (theme, centralized user database, etc.). A good example for this is wordpress.org approach:
Global site: https://wordpress.org/
English - Canada site: https://en-ca.wordpress.org/
Spanish - Spain site: https://es.wordpress.org/
Spanish - Argentina site: https://es-ar.wordpress.org/
Before going into a deep analysis, we thought that it might be good to list which sections will be necessary for a local minisite (a very good expample is civicrmfr.org):
- Translated summary of features
- Tools and tweaks for specific localization needs
- extensions that provide locally needed functionality (e.g. donation receipts), special language requirements etc.
- could be amended to the feature overview
- List of partners working on the country
- Local events
- Link to local forum with latest news
- Download link with translated explanation
- Short background info community, open source, ways to contribute...
- Link to localized demo site
- Case studies from local organizations?
- Local ambassadors?
2014-12-18 ToolKit first meeting
Aims of the local websites (good example http://www.civicrmfr.org/):
Communication & promotion:
Main components of the "Toolkit"
Pre-built Drupal site with a Theme based on the new civicrm.org and a basic structure of menus, blocks and sections Guidelines for interacting with Civicrm community and getting the "Site supported by CiviCRM" branding (also a link to your site from civicrm.org!) A roadmap of actions like:
At the beginning this will be mostly a landing page with 3 internal pages and a lot of links to civicrm.org page but will be a good starting point
- Build a landing page with 3 main sections
- a "What is CiviCRM" internal page with features, videos and some information
- A "Get Help" page with an explanation of resources (forum, wiki, etc...) and links to civicrm.org page
- Get involved page with links to civicrm.org get involved
- Include in the landing page a "Blog Section" with some posts translated (mostly from CiviCRM News feed but open to others)
Create a section of use cases translated in the site language or country
Create link to a trasnslated demo with some dummy but local data
Put local partners in Get Help
Promote local events and meetups (even if the registration page and event are still managed by civicrm.org)
Build the community
Create a login section
Manage events from the local civicrm
Send translated newsletters
Managing events from civicrm.local or civicrm.org?
Managing a local civicrm for local or w/ groups in
List of providers in civicrm.org and local website (will be great to have a "Language" field in the partner form)
