This forum is for any designer (new and old) who is involved in the design of a Wild Apricot based websites.

  1. Horizontal Menu - Change Font Size

    Currently building our new site. We picked a theme that we like, however, we want the main horizontal menu bar to have a smaller font so that it fits more of our pages on the menu (and not hidden in the additional drop-down). Is a theme override really the only way to adjust the font smaller? We are using the Bookshelf Textbook theme, but would prefer to have the menu bar that's more similar to the Granite theme.

    Is there a straightforward way to make this change? Thanks in advance.

  2. HTML eMail without META tags makes RESPONSIVE design useless...

    Since the Wild Apricot HTML Editor removes META tags, the @media queries for mobile device responsive designs are useless, since the "<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width">" is lost and therefore on the mobile device the eMail app ignores them...

    Since Wild Apricot is "going Responsive" now, I strongly recommend that this is a part of the future too, there has to be responsiveness in eMail design to be complete.

    I spent couple of hours and trial and error until I noticed that the viewport meta tag is just removed and not my @media queries were wrong.

  4. Responsive slideshow with automatic width/height

    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…

  8. Make a Parent Menu That Has Children Non-Clickable

    I found this Help page that outlines exactly what I need to do:

    http://help.wildapricot.com/display/DOC/Making+menu+items+not+clickable

    But I cannot get the execution to yield the correct results. The link says to copy and paste the CSS script into the 'Global javascript' section. Easy enough. Then I am supposed to add the PageID into the second to last line of code where the copied script currently has ("12345"). So, let's say the PageID that I want to hide is 1689200. So does my code look like this:

    disableLink("#PAGEID_1689188");

    or without quotes:

    disableLink(#PAGEID_1689188);

    or without the PAGEID prefix:

    disableLink("1689188"); OR disableLink(1689188);

    I am using…

  9. Responsive alternative to iframe embedding

    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…

  11. Overall File Storage Limit

    I would love for the Storage Limit to be much larger. I would pay more $ for more space. I'm talking 10 to 25 GB. 1000 MB is not enough for business like mine to share larger documents, presentations, PDF's. Right now I am paying Dropbox.com for space for me and my colleagues to share information. That is $ you guys could be making. Maybe you guys can team up with Dropbox and profit off each other. Just a thought.

  12. Is it possible to adjust height of each blog snippet preview in the blog list view?

    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…

  15. Inserting PHP pages

    Hello,

    I'm relatively new to WA and new to the forum and have been unsuccessful finding the answer to this question here. Perhaps someone could kindly answer for me: Is there a way to insert PHP pages into WA, maybe via iframes or something similar?,

    I have a database that needs to serve a collection of PDF files to my WA site users, and the best way to do this would be to have a page inserted into the normal WA site that contains PHP code. I know you can add HTML and Javascript, but can PHP pages be used?…

  19. Dual Language Toggle - bilingual sites

    We have pretty much perfected a process that will allow for Wild Apricot sites to feature and support multiple languages. Wait we are not talking about translating content, rather hiding pages from one language from being seen or navigable via the nav while the user has toggled a language option. When we install and customize our code to your Wild Apricot site, we are able to hide French language pages from displaying when the user clicks the toggle to English for example.

    Wanna see this in action? Certainly, here you go:http://www.latinohotelassociation.org Spanish / English Language Togglehttp://copeh-canada.roundtablelive.org French /…

  20. Are you a designer? We want your feedback!

    We're want to create more resources for anyone who designs sites on top of Wild Apricot. But as always we're looking to get your input first.
    To get the ball rolling here are some ideas we've been thinking about.
    1) Wild Apricot Web Designer Guide (online/e-book) - A detailed guide to all the structural CSS elements of a page, including a cookbook (recipe) approach to customizations. 2) Wild Apricot 'Designer Community' (online only) - Move all customization/design resources to a new location (i.e., outside of forums and help) built just for designers to discuss, share and learn different techniques for…
