Funding foremost means donations from site visitors and site users, people who log in to use some of the special features available on this site for the Green Party of California. Future funding might be more-of-the-same or a small stipend from someone or even the GPCA or a grant. This category has articles which talk about those needs and how they might be met.

Community Building is the larger view of party building. A party needs to grow and to function well.  The larger community in which the party and others political parties exist need to flourish, cooperate more often than not, and have the electorate therein reach compromises on public policies and public works programs more often, more efficiently and effectively.

Topics Related to More Progressive Public and Worker Health and Safety...

This list of counties is different from the "All California Counties Facebook Information" list.  Each "county page" in this list exists to hold not only the link to the corresponding Facebook county Green Party discussion group but also can hold a link to that county's formal web site and to other web published materials.

If you are a registered user on this CAGI web site, you can log in to submit new articles about in the California Counties listed in this section or for the information of constituents in that county.  You will need to have "Publisher" permissions added to your account to create new categories in this section.  Email the site administrator your request to be "upgraded" to have "Publisher" privileges or the "lesser" permission of "author" or "editor."

Submitting web links for a specific county is a CAGI web site feature "coming soon."

Topics Related to Building and Preserving More Progressive Communities and Societies...

I, JGW, created this category in the "Opinions" section on June 225, 2013, the day the US Supreme Court in effect destroyed the Voting Rights Act of 1965 and put another nail in the coffin that holds the fate of US Democracy.  Other Green Party opinion writers on this topic PLEASE feel free to contribute your opinions to this category. Also contribute articles to GP strategy and tactics categories on this CAGI site as well as to related Forum categories also on CAGI!

Post no articles here that are "just" venting "how awful it is" whatever "it" is. Use a suitable Forum category or post an article in the Opinions Section.

The articles in the categories in this Democracy Destroying Politics section should constructively and thoughtfully analyze, summarize, and/or provide commentary about historic and recent acts in [city,] state, national and international politics which have seriously weakened or destroyed small-d democracy. The results should inform progressives in general and the GPCA membership in particular and be "nutritious food for though" for GP people to create effective strategies and tactics.

Categories to collect an increasing number of articles for a given [city,] state, nation, etc. will be provided on-request by email. Those with suitably constructive and thoughtful articles about cities or towns will get a "city" category on request by email.

See also GPCA-Volunteers-wp, , the Green Party of California's test Volunteers web site created with and powered by the Wordpress 3 content management system.  Since this and the "Volunteers-wp" site are "test sites", both sites should have 90+% identical (a.k.a. mirrored) content... if only for the site builders' exercise in keeping two sites "in sync".

On this Joomla-powered site, the GPCA Volunteers section will present all matters and services related to informing and helping GPCA Volunteers do their volunteer work as efficiently and as effectively as possible.  The services (are to) include a "signup service" provided as part of the CiviCRM extension.  For now all newly signed-up volunteers go into one "pool" or "civicrm group", the "All Volunteers" group.  jw100601, jw100729

GPCA Ideas, Issues, Arguments
Censored or Ignored

If your constructive ideas, issues or arguments -- especially if they are those you voiced during official GP meeting and which the leadership or the group ignored or censored == PUT THEM HERE.  CAGI site content readers can read and consider your remarks and suggestions, comment on them - constructively -- and start pubic or private forum topic on-going discussions about them.  Conclusions reached by a majority or consensus of the discussants can become at the very least a CAGI Opinion article which if the discussants make it public "the world" can see, read, and consider.  That may change our Green Party of California, if not also other US GPs, for the better. 

No flame wars please.

GPCA W.I.P. Document Categories
for CAGreens.org site Content Maintenance on this CAGI Site

 An Experimental "Proof of Concept" intended to help web site content developers and mangers
work out how to create new, revised, and replacement documents for GPCA "Live" Web Sites

Login to submit new articles about this web site and new or revised documents for this GPCA Document Categories.  You will need to have "author" privileges to create and edit your own content on this site. 

ACESS PRIVILEGES: You will need to have "editor" privileges to edit the content of yourself and 1+ other content authors all of whom will be working on this site.  You will need to have "Publisher" permissions added to your account to create new article categories in this section.  Email the site administrator your request to be "upgraded" to have "Author" or "Editor" or "Publisher" privileges or to have 2 or all 3 of these privileges.

THE PUBLISHING CONTEXT: The GPCA "leadership" has not yet found the need for having a separate site for web site content production and refinement or for a systematic process -- existing as a refineable test process or set of processes -- for creating new documents or refining existing documents taken from its several web sites. Nevertheless for experimental purposes and as a "proof of concept" for the need to develop such content production and maintenance processes, Greens with CAGI site accounts can login to this site and do here.  Here they can create new documents for the GPCA, copy documents from existing "live" web sites and save them here.  Discuss among other interested GPCA members and content developers what changes could be made to the copies of the documents stored on this site.  Then by themselves or in content development team edit, refine and/or create replacement versions of that content for those documents.  GPCA web site content managers, if and when they exist, can then reviewed here on this site the content created or revised here for consideration of adoption as "new content" or "next versions" of the content on the official GPCA web sites.  

Site Content Alternative Views
of articles and/or of web links

Site Content Alternative Views in general means there is more than one way to "look at" and "sift through" or "filter" the article and web-link content of this web site.  Each "way" is a called a view or a starting-place for the site visitor. It is also a virtual door-way to other doors and windows and the "content" on the "other side" of that door or window.  Hopefully, for the site visitor and logged in site user who knows in general what he or she wants to find, the different views provide an easier and quicker way to get to the more detailed information they most want in the fewest web-page navigation "clicks."

This page (will) shows links to most read articles and web links in several, but not in all article categories and not in all web link categories.

This area of the web site has been infrequently improved since August 2011.

Since mid August 2011 this section has listed categories -- and articles in the categories - for Tips which primarily are to be progressive campaigning tip articles and tip web links. Ethical Tricks categories, articles, and web links will follow.

"We" the CAGI site content developers hope to have actual Tutorials and then Online Classes articles and links to elaborated procedures or self-paced classes online placed in appropriate categories before the 2012 California Primaries and for use throughout the 2012 election season. I and other instructional designers first need to determine the specific needs for tutorials and online classes from the GPCA members, supporters, and candidates.  jgw110820

CMS stands for "content management systems." Example free open source CMS brands are Joomla!, Drupal, and Wordpress.  Web Sites in the 2nd decade of the 21st century almost MUST be built on some sort of CMS to provide greater ease of submission and revision of site content documents by organization members and provide relative ease of system administrators of now much more complex "web 2.0" CMS web site.  Sys-admins might enable and "tweak" the site's web page layouts, forms for people to fill-out, site-functions like email-blasting and newsletter, donor sign-ups, volunteer sign-ups, small-to-large project management, and many other special features only a CMS site can provide to organization members and the general public which visits and uses the site.

Content Management is what most web site builders until very recently have neglected to consider (since the Internet went public in  1991) when building and deploying a web site for a  "client" like a business or in our case a political party state-wide organization!

Some "management issues" and "technical consideration" types of articles on these topics as they are helpful to the GPCA and the GPCA IT Working Group will be found here.

draft 1.0.0

Initial CMSes: Joomla 2.5, 3.2-2.5, Drupal 7,  Worpress 3, Mediawiki, other wikis to be determined by request for them.

Recommended lists of add-on third party code, and groups/sets of code for CMSes based on the special functions (aka functional areas or FAs) they add to a site, functions which the CMS "core" code does not yet provide:

Only Progressive Live and Test Web Sites get listed on CAGreenIDEAS.org.  Conservatives are not welcome for any site building services "we" provide. You know why.

A sign-up form will be provided "soon" with which to request your progressive organizations own FREE test web site.  The link to that form will appear here.

An overview of the tentative conditions about test web sites requests and uses are to be here. These conditions will under go a periodic review, request for comments (in addition to those already postted to CAGI Forum topic), further review and update.

List of Current Active Progressive Test Sites

A * by a site name indicates CAGI set it up and web hosts it.

  • site-1
  • site-2
  • site-3

The articles in this category each (will) present a comprehensive overview, or index, of the articles and web link content on this web site that are related to a particular progressive issue. In this way each article can serve as a "table of contents" and index with which the student of a particular issue may return to repeatedly to continue their studies.

The purpose of this category of tips and tutorials is to offer summary "better" and "best practices" as well as short procedural check-lists for the design, construction and maintenance of a 2012-level state-of-the-art web site. The tutorials and check-lists here will speak to a "generic" non-specific content management system of which the three most popular CMSes are Joomla!, Drupal, and Wordpress. In sub-categories labeled by CMS type (e.g. Joomla!) I (or a "we" to be determined) will offer more specific instructions using both the generic easier to understand language and the idiomatic technical language the particular CMS type imposes.

CAGreenIDEAS.org uses Joomla! version 1.5, soon version 1.6.
CAGreens.org uses Drupal version 7.

Communications includes ways, means, methods and best practices; the latter might be the most important. For without using a communications medium well, the participants waste a lot of time and slow down or stall party progress.

This web site offers free web conferencing services to the general public and to California Green Party members and candidates.  "We" have five online conference rooms reserved primarily for the use of GPCA members.  Login to see "rooms" 2-5. But other GP USA members can use them as well.

Currently online conference room use if "first come, first serve".  The conference organizer must notify all participants him or herself and do what is needful to get them to login to the conference room at the same time.

Sometime in Q1 2011 the site administrator will add a conference room reservation and event notification service to this web site.

Site Content Views General Information

The following is a list of the active article sections on this web site. An active article section has at least one article web published in the section or in a category of the section and that article is available to the general public, i.e. the site visitor, as a "public" article, or it is a "private" article available only to the logged in site user who has one of the logged in site user permissions: registered user, author, editor, or publisher.

As of the date of creation of this article category, 11.10.02, Project Planning and Management (PP&M) articles in this category will be (1) a wish list of articles (perhaps discussed in a Forum category), (2) outline articles about project planning or management (to be elaborated upon by others' logging in and editing them). The initial goal is to present increasing good summary information about PP&M that GPCA members without PP&M experience are most willing to adopt.
