What can we do to make it easier to design with Wild Apricot?

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!

        Finally, after months of hard work, my website is complete and I wanted to share it with other WA users/developers for feedback. Check it out at http://www.girlnetic.com .

        We are a membership-based and events centric organization and for the past couple of months have been researching to find the best option for us to help manage our organization. At first was hesitant on using the WA platform because it was still missing some functionalities that are important to our website, i.e. more advanced blogging feature. I only decided to use WA when I came across dotCreativity http://dotcreativity.com Web Design Services who worked on integrating WA to our current website, customization and developing some of the missing features we required for WA to work for us. Believe it or not, our website is Wordpress and WildApricot combined! I'm SO happy with the result--everything is exactly how I want/need the website to be--and highly recommend dotCreativity http://www.dotcreativity.com to anyone looking to do more with their WA website!! I certainly will be!!

        We were able to change the template enough to match the templates used by the whole university: http://oedk.rice.edu

        I am working on learning more CSS options to challenge the site even further!

        Instead of "members" we have used the profile pages to highlight our engineering design projects.

        So far so good. Customizable profile pages would be ideal...looking forward to some upgrades!

        I know this is a late response, but I really like this site. I would love to know how they designed the custom header, navigation bar, and footer. I assume the designer used themes overrides but any insight or tips on how I could do something similar would be greatly appreciated.

        I like the way http://www.dfwima.org uses the login. How can I do that? What customization steps should I do to implement this into my site?

        I love the top corner piece as well, the "Become a Member" triangle. How can i do this as well? THANKS!

        I love the setup of this site. Is there anyway to share in the customization done on this site. I have had issues with the drop down menus staying in site, taking up precious room, this would eliminate that problem all together for me. I like how it drops the top menu to the side, allowing for non-intrusion of the web page itself.

        http://www.spec.bc.ca has my vote on best design around the drop down menu. And the site looks Great!

        Dani,

        I love your login box treatment. Are you willing to share how you implemented?

        Thanks in advance.

        I like it! How did you get the rotating images on the header?

        Um, I just looked at their site and it looks like it's a Wordpress blog now. View the source and you'll see what I mean.

      • DaniDani commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        yes I can see your point.

        This would be for those who have limited space, to have the option to give different login options. www.kailuachamber.com is a good example. It took away from the header to have a box there and with us adding more and more advertising to the side bar it got lost.

        very cool!

        Though my personal opinion is that for usability reasons showing login fields makes it easier for people to find/recognize login for what it is.

      • DaniDani commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Wanted to share what we did with the login box on this site. I like this better and am going to change the other site we did which I am finally getting around to the design on.

        Maybe this is something you guys can offer as an option in the future?
