  1. How do I add the "more" link so I can show a small amount of text and have the rest expand?

    I have a Home Page using a Content gadget to give some About Us info. I'd like to initially just show the first paragraph and have a "more" link to allow the user to expand the information if they want. I tried using the Collapse function and it shows the "more" link properly but still shows all of the text below that.

    • Number of rows in layouts

      The template I use most for emails has a one column layout. The one column layout has too many rows for my use, causing blank space between where I'm putting my logo and the text of the email. How do I get rid of one of the rows, or at least adjust it so it doesn't take up much room?

        • Member Directory Search Gadget : Modifying layout of checkboxes when searching by checkbox-based Member Fields

          When configuring a Member Directory Gadget advanced search to search by a Membership Field that is a multiple-choice checkbox type, we are wondering if it's possible to modify the display of the numerous checkbox options, in the search screen.

          Currently, the checkbox options are just listed in one long single column in the middle of the page. Would it be possible to make better use of the lateral space of the page and list the options in rows of fewer options.

          The options are listed within a <table> as <td> elements.

          • upcoming events gadget and recent blog post gadget - edit links

            i'd like to change the font color and size of the linked text in the "upcoming events" gadget an "recent blog posts" gadget . i.e. in "upcoming events" the linked text that directs to you that event's details, and in "recent blog posts" the link that directs you to a particular post. i'm told by wild apricot support that this can only be done with css (not an option in colors and styles) can someone provide the css code to do this?

              Basic blog customization

              We need a way to customize the way the blog looks! I'm not looking for anything fancy, but if I can't change the colour of the blue boxes or the alignment of the headers, I basically can't use the gadget. Please! The current blog format is super ugly and makes us look really hokey. Please give us more options on the blog format! (I'm using the Kaleidoscope Redwood theme...maybe there's a better one for blogging?)

              • Changing colour palatte of theme

                Hi, I have been trying to change the theme palatte colours as instructed on the WA help page Customizing Colors and Styles options for themes. https://gethelp.wildapricot.com/en/articles/465

                I downloaded the theme files but when I open the 'defautValues.txt' file it does not look like the one in the example. Basically there is no actual information in there about colours - the values are all empty! See attachment.

                Nor does it have the same language eg Global_settings- but this may be because of the theme and version I am using (Kalidescop_neon.V3.0)

                I’ve tried adding the colour value to on part - the…

                  • I find WA forms a bit rigid / not easy to customize

                    I had a request to add one line of text to a form, explaining that the payment would be via Paypal or credit card. Could not do that, had to make a workaround by putting some small ext underneath the form.

                    I had a request to list membership levels in order by amount on the Change Membership Form. Also could not do that.

                    After being spoiled by Jotform, CognitoForm, Wufoo Forms, etc I really miss the ability to have some control over the display of form fields, and the content of the form!

                      • Changing the Pay Offline button label for event registration to Pay by Check

                        My club members are used to being able to pay by check at the door for our monthly events. We are new to Wild Apricot and the Pay Offline button is confusing to some of the older members. Can someone help me with how to change the label on that button to Pay by Check?

                        • Event listing--adding border, adding register button

                          We are using Firma-Above the Clouds.

                          The concern is the CSS options for our page https://mdflora.org/trips.html

                          When the Event List gadget is used, it is very confusing to determine the separation of different events, especially in mobile screen size.

                          We would like to have a border around each event, or at minimum a horizontal line between the events.

                          Any advice, or suggested css would be appreciated.

                          • Registration Form "Additional Guest" confusion

                            Currently when a person registers for an event and is buying for multiple people they have to add the number of additional guests to the registration. Themselves plus the additional people.
                            This is confusing a numbers of our customers who are buying one too many tickets because they are entering the total number of guests, not the number of additional guests.

                            Is there a way to change the wording on this to make it easier to understand or perhaps ask for the total number of guests? If someone has examples on how to do this it would be much appreciated.

                            • How to hide 'session' label in event title from Upcoming events gadget

                              When you create multi-session event, the Upcoming event gadget displays session number in the title of event.
                              We received several requests from users to hide this. As quick solution you can use the following JS code:
                              <script type="text/javascript">
                              $(function()
                              {
                              if( $('.WaGadgetUpcomingEvents').size() )
                              {
                              $('.WaGadgetUpcomingEvents a:contains("(session")').each(function()
                              { var text = $(this).html(); var newText = text.replace(/(\s+\(session[\w\s]+\))/, ""); $(this).html(newText); }
                              );
                              }
                              });
                              </script>

                              • Adding Second PayPal Account?

                                We have an event coming up where the payments go into a separate PayPal account from our organization's main PayPal because it has an entirely separate budget.
                                Membership, Workshop fees go to the main CMAG account, which is already set up on the site. Registration fees for our Spring Show go into an account specifically set up for the Spring Show's separate budget.

                                Is there some way to add this second account to our financial settings? I've looked & I can't find any way to do it. The payments really do need to be kept separate.

                                  I'm experimenting with the WA slideshow gadget, but the problem I'm having seems to be with the choices for the sizing. It seems I can only choose from fixed layouts (16:9, 3:4, 1:1, or a fixed height). This works ok for camera photos that actually are in those aspect ratios but not so good for custom images like banners and header images which may have different aspect ratios such as being very long and rectangular (e.g., a 10:1 aspect ratio). Choosing the "Landscape 16:9" option displays the entire banner image, but it also puts a lot of whitespace above and…

                                    Hello All,

                                    My group has decided to setup a new website for our organization. The decision has been made to use Wordpress for the website and embed the necessary forms from Wild Apricot. At the moment, the only way I know how to embed external urls (like those for my Wild Apricot forms) is to use iframes. Unfortunately, the Wild Apricot forms change size and the iframes do not. This leaves users with having to deal with scroll bars in the iframe. This is difficult for users to navigate and greatly detracts from the look of the site. I am…

                                      The first thing you see when you click the blog menu is the blog snippet preview that displays the first few lines of each blog in a list.

                                      Is it possible to adjust the height of each blog snippet? My organization uses a blog to post its recent activities, and each blog article features a short intro, photos then a full-length write-up. Under the current setting, the blog preview snippet displays the intro and the top 10-30% of the ensuing photos. The top 10-30% usually means the ceilings or various venues where our events took place. If we could increase…

                                      • Link to a Folder or File

                                        I am new with the Wild Apricot site. How do I set a link on a web page to a folder or file that I just uploaded in File Management?

                                        • 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!
