How much money goes through your website each year? A thousand dollars? A hundred thousand? And where is it coming from? Jobs? Events? Are you really getting the most out of the features your website has to offer? Lots of questions! And now, some answers...
Introducing Invoice Reports!
We are excited to release Invoice Reports to our clients! This set of advanced Invoice Reporting is a new feature for Tendenci 5.1 websites that provides information about which fundraising programs are bringing in the most money for your group.
These reports, run for a specific date range, return both summary and detailed information on all revenue-generating (or fundraising) modules on your site: Events, Memberships, Job Boards, Directories and Donations.
Now you can see, in one consolidated report, where the revenue is coming from and just how much your site is facilitating your fundraising efforts!

Update - JAVA Security Patch is available to Download
Download the latest JAVA release at http://java.com/en/download/index.jsp to correct the security holes reported in JAVA last week.
Security Warning - Download Important JAVA Security Patch on January 15th
Read the latest Updates from the US Government's Computer Emergency Readiness Team: http://www.us-cert.gov/current/#us_cert_releases_oracle_java
The Department of Homeland Security has released an advisory warning of a potential security issue in JAVA and recommending that users temporarily disable JAVA in their web browsers until a security patch has been released.
In response to the announcement, Oracle released their own recommendation that users temporarily disable JAVA in their web browsers until a security patch has been developed. Oracle is releasing a JAVA security patch on January 15th to fix the security vulnerabilities. We'll update you when the JAVA patch has been released and provide a link to download the patch along with instructions. You can also check Oracle's JAVA download page at http://www.java.com/en/download/manual.jsp.
Mozilla Firefox browsers have automatically had their JAVA plugins disabled after the warning, and users will need to manually update their settings to authorize JAVA if they want to use it in Firefox. You can find more information about authorizing and disabling JAVA in Firefox browsers on the Mozilla blog: http://blog.mozilla.org/security/.
We take security very seriously, and if you have any concerns about whether or not you should disable JAVA, then our recommendation for you is yes, disable JAVA until a patch is released on January 15th. If you disable JAVA, you should realize that many web applications rely on JAVA, and you will not have full functionality when exploring the web.
Tendenci Websites Don't Rely on JAVA
Site visitors and members on Tendenci websites should not experience any problems with their website functionality with JAVA disabled. Tendenci Websites have very few functions that incorporate JAVA, and instead we rely on more modern technologies that aren't vulnerable to the same type of attack.
The only issue you *might* experience is trouble with uploading photos to your photo albums on the website. If you experience this problem, you will also most likely have the same problem with other online photo uploaders, such as the one for Facebook.
Ultimately, we believe end users should use their own judgment as to whether or not to enable JAVA for a site they trust. If you decide not to disable JAVA, our advice is to only go to trusted sites and hover over links before clicking on them to view the target URL's actual link. We also recommend that you visit websites directly instead of clicking to a site from within an email link.
If you do have any issues or questions about how the JAVA security issue will affect you, reply to this forum post and our team will respond right away.
Reminder: Download the JAVA Security Patch on January 15th, 2013!
