Keeping up to date

Keeping your installation up to date is easy.

Here’s the general tasks you’ll run to update your codebase, in the following order.

  1. Update code (git pull)
  2. Add any new settings.php variables (git log -p massiveplatform_setup_files/settings.php)
  3. Update any code features (drush fd; drush fr tm_changed_module)
  4. Apply any database updates (drush updb)
  5. Clear cache (drush cc all)

New versions of Drupal core and modules are maintained and included, you don’t need to update modules seperately.

View changes to settings.php

git log -p massiveplatform_setup_files/settings.php

Example of updating code features

First, we clear the cache

drush cc all

Next, view the features list. This will show you if there are any database changes (ie: a new field) to platform modules.

drush fd

The output will look like this:

In the example above, scroll the output to the right, and you will notice that tm_events has been updated (‘Overridden’). You can bring the module up to date by running the following command:

drush fr tm_events

Check to make sure the features have been updated.

drush fd

If features have not updated, try clearing the cache, or running with update with the –force command (ie: drush fr tm_events –force)

Drupal cron

You must run the Drupal cron regularly to support tasks such as search indexing and email announcements.

drush run-cron --uri= --root=/path/to/massiveplatform

You can run the cron every minute by adding an entry to your /etc/crontab:

# Run Drupal ultimate cron every minute
* * * * * root /usr/bin/drush cron-run --uri= --root=/path/to/massiveplatform 2>&1 > /dev/null

Automated tasks

The following is a list of drush commands you can run.

You will need to implement your own scheduling (ie: via /etc/crontab) of these tasks.


These commands will cache data that might take a little longer to generate.

drush tm-api-cache-stats --uri= --root=/path/to/massiveplatform
drush tm-chapters-update-display-stats-cache --uri= --root=/path/to/massiveplatform
drush status-updates-index-view-counter --uri= --root=/path/to/massiveplatform
drush tm-reports-chapter-insights-cache --uri= --root=/path/to/massiveplatform

Community Management tasks

These commands provide automated chapter reports and management.

drush tm-community-management-reports --uri= --root=/path/to/massiveplatform
drush tm-community-management-tasks --uri= --root=/path/to/massiveplatform

See $conf[“tm_chapters_leader_*”] in settings.php for configuration options.

Event tasks

If you plan on enabling reminders, or live-streams, you will need to run these commands every 5 minutes.

drush tm-events-livestream-tasks --uri= --root=/path/to/massiveplatform
drush tm-events-reminder-tasks --uri= --root=/path/to/massiveplatform

See $conf[“tm_event_online_*”] in settings.php for configuration options.

Data export

Run these commands one a day to generate export data.

drush tm-generate-newsletter-csv --uri= --root=/path/to/massiveplatform
drush tm-chapters-members-csv-cache --uri= --root=/path/to/massiveplatform
drush tm-generate-facebook-csv --uri= --root=/path/to/massiveplatform

Newsfeed Emails

Run this command every 4 hours to schedule weekly newsfeed emails.

drush newsfeed-schedule-deliveries --uri= --root=/path/to/massiveplatform

See $conf[“tm_newsfeed_*”] in settings.php for configuration options.

Post RSS updates to organization pages

Run this command hourly if you want to enable automatic posting to company pages from an RSS feed.

drush status-updates-post-organization-updates --uri= --root=/path/to/massiveplatform


Customizing the sidebar

If you want to customize your sidebar, make a copy of ‘example-sidebar.tpl.php’ and update $conf[‘tm_theme_custom_sidebar_template’].

You can enable the traditional navbar by commenting out the following line in settings.php:

// $conf['tm_theme_custom_sidebar_template'] = 'example-sidebar.tpl.php';
