Interesting idea. But wouldn't that mean that all ward programs would look pretty much the same ? Kinda takes the creativity out of the calling of ward bulletin specialist. Also, given that ward website only comes with around 20 stock images for the ward website, I would hope that a bulletin website...

General Conference audio - where are the 16K streams ?

Can anyone point me to some 16K General Conference
streams ? While I'm sure the 32 K ones are better
sound quality, on my dial-up connection, it just
ends up buffering every 5-10 seconds, making it
impossible to follow the speakers.

Thanks,

There seems to be a pretty easy fix for this issue from the developer's side: Just add another database table for historical stats, and put in some logic to allow a choice between using the historical stats table (which is only changed by user intervention and not by membership moves), and the table...

One pattern to look for is to see if the names in the Stake MLS correspond to wards that use the "Use Preferred Names" checkbox under System Options in their ward's MLS. Some wards have this option checked and others do not; This could be what is causing the mismatch. The Stake probably is...

My take on these "Name Unknown" records is that they are like empty envelopes - let me explain. Compare the records of a new family moving into the ward to that of receiving a piece of mail. The Household record is the envelop with one of those clear plastic windows in it that shows the fa...

On alternative would be to have users of any password-protected lds site to do the OCR for you using CAPTCHA. You know how on some websites it says type the letters in this box to gain access to this website, this is CAPTCHA. Now if we were to take handwriting samples to fill the box, and then follo...

Here's a pain-in-the-neck-way to record attendance in MLS: Make 104 custom membership fields Attended_SundaySchool_week1, week2, week 3...week52 Attended_Priesthood_or_Relief_Society_week1,week2, week3...week52 They would then have a true/false value. Of course, you would probably have to abbreviate...

Need to update 1st presidency photo

I was updating my ward website and noticed that the photo for the first presidency hasn't been updated to include the new counselor. A quick look around the websites in our stake showed that one of our wards is using the old 1st presidency photo on their main page. Could you pass along a request to ...

In our stake, our auditors are instructed
to use the "Custom" option for the date
range in the Income/Expense report,
and set it to the audit period.
That way any changes made after
the audit period won't affect balancing
the "Other" account.

Unit Boundries Repository ?

I imagine that there is a computer system at CHQ that keeps track of all the Unit Boundries. It would be interesting to hear how it stores the information, what challenges they are overcoming, etc. Also, how confidential are unit boundries, anyway ? It seems that if there were a boundries lookup too...
