Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance Greater Houston Revamps Website for Better Accessibility


Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance Greater HoustonHOUSTON, February 12, 2016
 –Tendenci -The Open Source AMS (www.tendenci.com), the software development company spearheading the Tendenci Open Source platform for associations and other nonprofits (NPOs), is proud to release a dynamic new website for the Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance Greater Houston. The website, https://www.remindsupport.org, sponsors free and confidential support groups in the Greater Houston area for individuals suffering from depression and bipolar disorder and the family and friends that support them.

Tendenci Open Source was released as an open source solution for associations and non-profits to give nonprofits and cause-related organizations greater freedom and control over their online presence.

From the DBSA Houston website:

Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance Greater Houston provides free and confidential support groups for individuals living with, or family and friends affected by, depression and bipolar disorders. Our support groups are also offered to family members, caregivers and friends who are trying to understand these two difficult mental disorders as they try to assist loved ones.

One of the main areas of focus for DBSA Houston is to remove the stigma associated with depression and bipolar disorder and encourage those who are suffering to come forward, without embarrassment or shame, and find the support they need to live a fulfilling life.

DBSA Houston started offering support to individuals in 1979, a grassroots effort by their founder Gary L. Levering who recognized a need to offer help to those suffering from "mood disorders". The Houston group officially joined the national DBSA organization in 1989.

The flexible Content Management System included with the Tendenci platform allows DBSA Houston to easily add new support groups as they evolve and provide up-to-the-minute notification of group changes for their participants. With quick and easy inhouse management of site content, DBSA Houston is able to promote upcoming events, highlight recent news, revise page content and post announcements using a simple, non-technical inteface.

We are proud to work with an organization that is dedicated to improving the lives of many Houstonians and their families and friends.

Tendenci has more than 1 million users and currently powers hundreds of websites for non-profit organizations around the world, including the Spaulding for Children adoption agency (www.spauldingforchildren.org), the Children's Assessment Center of Houston (www.cachouston.org) and the Houston Technology Center (www.houstontech.org).

Reveille Club of Houston Launches New Open Source Tendenci Website

Reveille Club Returns to the Tendenci Platform for Membership and Event Management Features

Reveille Club of Houston WebsiteHOUSTON, February 3, 2016 –Tendenci (www.tendenci.com), the software development company spearheading the Tendenci Open Source platform for associations and other nonprofits (NPOs), is proud to release a dynamic membership website for the Reveille Club of Houston. The website, http://www.reveille.org, promotes local networking events for Aggies and non-Aggies alike to build new business relationships in the Houston area.

Tendenci Open Source was released as an open source solution for associations and non-profits to give membership organizations greater freedom and control over their online presence.

The Reveille Club of Houston is focused on building a professional community in the Houston area for friendship and networking. The club hosts weekly breakfast meetings and monthly luncheons for an opportunity to hear informative speakers and network with other professionals. All events are open to everyone in the community, regardless of alumni or membership status.

Reveille Club moved to a different platform a few years ago and then returned to Tendenci for the Event Management and Job Board features. While the weekly breakfast meetings are "cash at the door" events, the Houston Aggie Women require registration and prior payment for their plated luncheons. Having the ability to load speaker information, accept online registration and payments, run a check-in roster and send automatic event reminders make Tendenci an ideal choice for their group.

The flexible Content Management System included with the Tendenci platform also provides quick and easy inhouse management of site content. Volunteers with the organization are able to promote upcoming events, highlight recent news, revise page content and post photos using a simple, non-technical inteface.

As Aggies, we are especially pleased and proud to be supporting the Reveille Club and providing a platform on which they can run the association.

Tendenci has more than 1 million users and currently powers hundreds of websites for organizations around the world, including the San Francisco Bay Area Innovation Group (www.sfbig.org), the New York Emmy Awards (www.nyemmys.org) and the Houston Technology Center (www.houstontech.org).

Top Membership Management Software

We'd like to congratulate all of the companies on the list for doing great things for the NPO community. These are all people trying to make the world a better place and to help membership associations and non-profits. Membership management software is quite complicated so it's a great group of people to be ranked with.

A special tip of the hat to Wild Apricot for being ranked number 1.

Tendenci Can Help You Get Your Urgent Message Out

All Tendenci sites include the ability to put an emergency announcement at the top of every page on your site (assuming you haven't customized your templates to exclude it.)

This is what an emergency announcement looks like. In this case we used it to honor those who served on this Veteran's Day. The end result looks like the image below with the exception being that I added the yellow rectangle to make it more obvious what is in the emergency announcement versus the rest of the page. Keep reading after the jump to see how to add them on your Tendenci site.

EOL POLICY FOR TENDENCI 4 (T4) SOFTWARE

Scope: This only applies to Tendenci 4 clients using the legacy Microsoft version and not Tendenci 5 or 6 clients.

EOL Policy for Tendenci 4 (T4) Software

Tendenci has always been at the forefront of technology with regard to meeting the needs of associations and nonprofits. When we released Version 5.0 of Tendenci in 2012, the software took a major leap forward by going completely open source, allowing for outside contributions from the development community on software enhancements and bringing a level of transparency and complete control into the hands of all Tendenci users. We are excited about what the future holds for Tendenci as we have Version 6.0 currently in beta and a roadmap for Version 7.0 already underway.

With the focus on the future and what we can achieve with the new technology available, we have made the business decision to formally establish an End-of-Life (EOL) policy. In particular the EOL for Version 4.0 of the Tendenci on the Microsoft software platform is now set for April 21, 2015.

Tendenci was revolutionary when released in 2001. By the time we released Tendenci 4.0 in 2004, it ran seamlessly on the technology that existed at the time. As Microsoft phases out support for its older technologyTendenci must also adapt to the newer technology options that will provide the best environment for stability and growth.

For those clients still running on the Tendenci 4.0 software, there are two paths for moving forward.

  1. Upgrade to the latest version of Tendenci. T6 is mobile ready using Bootstrap, brings back the newsletter functionality using a client provided smtp relay like Mailgun, and can accommodate a host of pre-built bootstrap 3 templatesTendenci is open source and runs on Linux, an open source server environment. This means complete freedom for you with regard to customization and hosting. 

  2. You can stay on T4 and self host. If you would like to stay on the older technology, we can provide limited assistance to your IT team or an outside vendor with the move to your internal server environment. We will provide a single instance of Tendenci 4.0 for your use (not for resale) and you will need to establish your own security, monitoring, database server, DNS, mail servers, firewall and a VPC (recommended). 

For clients wishing to migrate to Tendenci 6.0 on our hosted servers, we will begin migrations on February 16, 2015. We expect the migration to take 30 days and are requiring full payment up front. To achieve this, there will be a need for some compromises on layouts initially, but being upgraded to a responsive design is long overdue and we can continue to work on layouts once we get everything secured and you can edit your sites easily again.

For clients wishing to self host or move to another platform, we will provide a one-time export of your data within the next 90 days. We will be accepting requests for exports starting February 2, 2015.

We appreciate the support of all of our clients as we have fought to protect and restore your sites during this time. We can all agree that despite our best efforts, the only course of action at this point is to adapt to the changing environment and look forward to what the newer technologies have to offer. Tendenci is a great product and successfully serves websites throughout the world. We look forward to a continued relationship with our clients in the open source world of dynamic software.

Note: A longer version with greater details for the clients still on Tendenci-legacy will receive an email with greater. If you do not please contact the helpdesk at https://helpdesk.tendenci.com 

Thank you all for your support.
