    Hi Kyle,

    Campaigner 4.5.0 is out, bringing with it support for the Membrr module.

    This means Campaigner can now subscribe your newly-registered EE members to your Campaign Monitor mailing lists regardless of whether you use the native EE Member Module, User, Membrr, Zoo Visitor, or automatically create the member after a successful CartThrob purchase.

    Full details of Campaigner’s compatibility with third-party add-ons are available here.

    Hi Kyle,

    We just released a massive update to our Forms Module:
    It has a brand spanking new Control Panel UI and Form Composer! (Inspired by Leevi Graham and the EE-Garage Team)
    Field Conditionals where also added, so you can show/hide fields based on values of previous fields.
    To top it off Forms 3.0 also has fieldsets and multiple column layouts.

    Brad Parscale also posted a video that walks you through the new features:

    Have a nice week all!

    Hi Kyle

    Jamie Pittock and I (Brendan Underwood - ipixel) were pretty proud to launch a large EE website last Friday for the Bibbulmun Track Foundation ( The Bibbulmun Track is a world renown walking trail that extends nearly 1000 kilometres (620 miles) from Perth to Albany on the south west of Western Australia. The project has taken just over 6 months to complete, with the site also catering for over 8600 member accounts and their extended profile data (80+ member data profile fields) that was imported from a MS Access Database.

    While I was primarily on point for the functional spec, scoping and design, Jamie was responsible for the majority of the front end templating, with me bringin up the rear with a comprehensive front end secure staff admin control panel to manage the day to day running of new memberships, renewals, downgrades, event bookings, merchandise, notifications and reports.

    The client in this case was responsible for all the content seen on the site, from the text, the huge galleries and all the geo data around the tracks and associated points (campsites, access points, towns, accommodation & services). Of course we would not have been able to do this without the support from Rob and Chris at CartThrob/Mightybigrobot, who helped with custom addons to assist with being able to have Staff Admins be able to purchase goods, book events and join/renew members on their behalf as many members don’t even have an email address. Also a quick thanks to Iain and Leevi for their help with writing the custom reports templates for NSM Reports to allow data output and querying on the 8600+ member database.

    The feedback from Bibbulmun’s members and from the professional EE community has been great, and Jamie and I are pretty damn proud.
