v3.85: legal notice, small improvements & fixed bugs

Translations: Deutsch (Deutschland)

“But the blog post is pretty limited,” you may be thinking to yourself. What may be true of the blog post is certainly not true of ChurchTools. Version 3.85 doesn’t come with big new features for a good reason, because we’re spending a lot of time on other projects right now, which you’ll hear more about soon. 😁

Display legal notice

With the new version, you can also add a legal notice in addition to your privacy policy. This is necessary in certain cases, if you use your ChurchTools installation also publicly, for example for group registrations.

You can edit the legal notice via the admin settings under Privacy/Security. Further information can be found in our online help.

Inserts a legal notice for your church


Quick Search – Quick search is a handy feature that lets you get from A to B quickly. However, cryptic elements (HTML tags) were displayed when you hovered your mouse over an element. This has been fixed.

Meeting points – We have replaced the icon at “Meet at” in the group dialog “Create meeting place”, because the address is only searched via the person, but the meeting place is not connected to the person.

In addition, the large map view has been improved so that the initial state is better displayed if you have no meeting points stored with a group.

Last but not least: the REST API now also returns the meeting points.

Public Relations– In public relations, the processing of the address in the map has been improved.

Wiki – In the wiki, you can now use relative links. A relative link is a link that does not start with the domain. So instead of https://demo.church.tools/wiki/2/WikiPage you can now also add /wiki/2/WikiPage as a link.

Teaser: ChurchTools Finder

As you can see, there are no big new features to show for version 3.85. We have mainly worked a lot on the substructure and made ChurchTools more stable.

In addition, a lot of work went into the new ChurchTools Finder. Soon you will learn more about it. Stay tuned!

Further changes

If this is not enough for you, you will find all changes of this and earlier versions in our Changelog.

We hope you like the new version as much as we do. As always, you may leave praise and criticism in our forum.
