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

  1. I've never seen a system so difficult to customize

    I am a designer and have been trying for three days to make my layout look like the client's site.

    Client's site design: www.wbninc.com/dev/

    WA site: members.wbninc.com

    The code is so completely convoluted and bloated, I still can't figure out why my page and contents (including my header image when I put it in there) are being resized smaller. I can't get rid of the insane padding around the page content.

    Isn't there a way to start with practically nothing and build from there, instead of having to strip out tons of css?

    Has anyone figured out how to put…

  2. 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!

  3. Is there a gadget that can be used to allow members to enter Information?

    We have several "sign up" sheets for our club. For instance people sign up to get tables and chairs ready for meetings. Currently the webmaster is entering the information into an HTML table and displaying it in a Content gadget. Ideally we would put a form on the website with Months as a label with a field that people can enter their name into. Is there any way to publish a form that people can make entries into?

  4. Moving the Register button up on repeated event page?

    Is it possible to move the Register button above the list of sessions on a repeated Event page?

    We are using repeated events for a weekly activity, and the list of sessions pushes the Register button down off the page. See https://tyc.org/event-3076030 .

  7. Forum Gadget - Initial forum description should be part of forum topic

    It seems that every other forum I have used always lists the initial description with the title of the Forum Topic at the top. Replies to the topic are listed below. Your own WA support forums work that way!!

    The current forum gadget treats the initial description the same as one of the replies, so that it may appear at the top or bottom . depending on your settings. This is a problem and should be fixed.

  9. Differentiating between title text and alt text in the horizontal menu

    Does anyone know how to get access to the HTML of the menu to modify the title attribute text because it is the same as the alternative text.

  16. Web Design Yes, but trust must also be well designed

    Web Design Yes, but trust must also be well designed

    When it comes to developing relationships, whether with clients or members, there are 4 fundamental rules to follow. Read Emily Beaver's article and unearth the details:

    Strategy #1: Give customers a consistent experience
    > A branded Wild Apricot Theme can help

    Strategy #2: Create an emotional connection
    > Tell them why your organization is passionate about its mission and how it plans to achieve it. Maybe they will see themselves in that process.

  18. Get Designing Tips

    I can take a look at it today after I get home and get a second, brighter one (maybe with more lights too, current concept has 3 small, added lights, some faint spores, and a faint charger in the background). I might tone back the blur a bit as well. The orange spore clouds are pretty cool and I'll try to get a couple more unique shots of them. I used the same base cloud for both, and one of them is barely visible because of the blurring and color overlay. I've got a few ideas for a second version,…

  19. Add a shared calendar

    We operate an art gallery/cultural center with a very full calendar of events....typically 2 or 3 events per day, each running from a few hours to all day. Of course, they are sequenced to not interfere with each other. Many of the events are repetitive over 9 or 12 weeks.

    There are 3 people who access the calendar and schedule activities.

    We were using an Excel file for a while, but it became very cumbersome and unweildy as it grew and projected further into the future. We found the calendar function on Wild Apricot wasn't sophisticated enough for our needs,…
