  1. Find examples of or sharing of custom gadgets? Similar to how Axure has an entire community based sharing program.

    I'm not even really sure where I am supposed to post this. I am looking for a community of Wild Apricot users who share code for custom widgets. Similar to http://www.axure.com/community/widget-libraries

          • Remove the shadow effect from text?

            Does anyone have a way (perhaps CSS code) to remove the shadow effect from the Menu text in the Homestead theme? I have tried but have been unable to find a way to do this.
            Thanks!

                  • How can I remove certain tabs in the "My Profile" page?

                    Our company wants to use the WA website as little as possible so as to funnel most people through our main website. We want to strip down as much as can lead to confusion as possible in the WA website.

                    We wish to remove three tabs in the "My Profile" page which we have no use for and will just confuse our members. We only want to keep "My Profile" and "Invoices and Payments"

                    I have a good understanding of CSS but since I cannot see the code in front of me, I do not want to risk executing the…

                      • Please share your Wild Apricot websites with cool design or features

                        I would love to see more examples of what people have done with their pages. It is stoo hard to comb through the posts to find those who have given their websites to you guys. Seeing examples really helps me get ideas and it also shows the capability of the system. It would be nice if you created a section in the forum for people to showcase their websites.

                        Thanks!

                        • Removing (administrator) text from forum and blog pages

                          When an administrator with a public profile makes a post to the forum or blog, the name is suffixed "(administrator)". You can remove this text with the following CSS:

                          SPAN.postedByComment {
                          display: none
                          }

                                    Hello,

                                    First post to the forum. I was wondering if anyone had a nice program to use to integrate an EASY to use slideslow into my webpage that flips through a few photos or figures. I tried using Picasa to do the HTML code but I am not sure where the photos need to be and how I then tweak the code.

                                    Thanks for your help

                                    Mark

                                    • Pictures in the left Navigation Container?

                                      Hello,

                                      I have currently chose a hybrid template (main navigation on across the top, and sub-items along the left side), and have customized it a bit. http://www.rnlcny.org/Members The login box is also in the left submenu, although I have limited it to showing only on certian Members accessed pages.

                                      I would like to add more to the left Navigation Container, like a 200x100 picture that tell of an event or theme, or iframes or even widgets. If it was stacked from top to bottom, the navigation container would look like: Image, Sub-Items Menu, Log-in (that I've turned on for appriotate…

                                      • Adobe Typekit and Google WebFonts

                                        Hiyah,

                                        I am trying to use Adobe Typekit or Google WebFonts in the design of my site.

                                        Am having difficulty getting either to work.

                                        I have tried two methods with Typekit, having inserted Typekit's two lines of code into the <head> section of each page by using the Meta-Tags>Raw Headers window.

                                        1) - using CSS customisations to generate a custom class:

                                        - then using that to surround some text:

                                        <h1asd> Test text </h1asd>

                                        This method has no effect

                                        2) using span class on the page, to reference 'h1asd' defined in typekit as a

                                        <span class="h1asd">Test text</span>

                                        This method has no…

                                        • Passing Member ID to and External Site

                                          Some clients have want to the ability to link to another site with their Member ID in the URL. Just could be for a number of reasons, such as for referral credits, or some type of basic authentication. Using some clever JavaScript it is possible to grab the member ID and pass it on to another site.

                                          Since Wild Apricot does not yet have an API, it isn't possible to simple pass the member ID over, we would need to read it off the page. Since the member ID is only found on the member profile page, we would need…
