CiviCRM 2.1 Stable released for Drupal 6

Moving from Drupal 5 to Drupal 6 has been a bit like giving birth to an elephant. Not only has the gestation period been long but the back labor has been particularly painful. There are still loose ends but this announcement of CiviCRM 2.1 clears the way for membership organizations to take a serious look at Drupal 6.

HTML Filters

By default, Drupal's HTML filter strips tags which WYSIWYG editors like FCKeditor produces. To enable Drupal to render content in a manner consistent with the intent of authors using a WYSIWYG you can either make the default Input Format Full HTML or add tags to the filter at admin/settings/filters/1/configure.


Some modules require regularly scheduled actions, such as cleaning up log files. Using cron can make these happen automatically.

# m h  dom mon dow   command

If your Drupal site is hosted at LS.Net and admin/logs/status doesn't show a recent "Cron maintenance tasks",  contact the webmaster and have him set up a crontab like the one above.
