  1. Blog Excerpts Cut Off

    Hi, I'm setting up a site with a customized theme. I'm running into an issue on the blog page where the excerpt of a specific post is getting cut off (see the screen shot below, just above the Read More | Add Comment links). I use the Firebug extension in Firefox, but haven't been able to figure out where in the CSS the size of the excerpt box is controlled.

    Is there a way to fix it? Ideally, I'd like to make it just stretch to whatever the size of the post is.

    I'm using a customized version of the…

    Hi,

    I applied Custom Style 1 to my gadgets, but I would also like the same look to the normal text block next to them. How can I do this?

    Thanks!

  3. Stretch "Basic" Theme, from 2 columns, to 3 columns

    Hello, I was wondering if anyone would be able to help me stretch the "Basic" theme, from 2 columns, to add a 3rd column of equal size of the other 2. If anyone could help me with this it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

  7. Renewal button for membership payment

    When a member renews a subscription for billing, how do we change the java script to reflect the button text as automatic recurring monthly renewal? not to show a "renewal until" date?

    Need javascript language, and where to input the javascript.

    Thank you.

  8. Hiding the stop recurring button

    When a member signs into the site, and then looks up their profile, they have an option to stop recurring payments of their membership fees.

    How do we hide the "Stop recurring payment" button so they do not have the option of stopping recurring payments?

    What is the css code?

    Please help! Thank you.

  9. Hiding Sub-Menus (in members section)

    Is there a method for not having sub-pages show up as a sup-menu? I don't want any sub-menus on my site.

    For example, when a user logs in and reaches the main members section, every sub-section is listed in an ever growing menu below the main menu. This is distracting as there is already a table of contents-like menu listed on the main page.

  10. Class view to mark attendance and homework

    We lead workshops that require us to keep track of attendance (7 meetings) and assignments (4) for each participant.

    We can put a yes/no for each thing in the contact record for each participant.

    How could the whole class be displayed to be able to check it off easily? (meaning without having to click through to each contact record.)

    Thanks in advance!

  12. Javascript Libraries

    I am wondering if WA works with an External Javascript Library/Framework (i.e. jQuery, Spry, etc.).

    I already added the library I need to the site via the Global Javascript Settings, but it does not provide the intended functionality. it seems that the library does not work with WA.

    I need to create a custom menu for my client. I have used the Theme Overrides and modified the appropriate String Template files to achieve the custom menu structure that I need. However, when I apply the Spry Framework that is needed to create the menu functionality, it breaks.

    My question is…

  13. Example of login box customization using Theme Overrides

    You might have noticed that a new capability called "Theme Overrides http://help.wildapricot.com/display/DOC/Theme+Overrides " was introduced in Wild Apricot release 4.2. Unfortunately, this unclear name actually hides quite an impressive set of functions to customize your site's visual behavior, much more expanded than it was before. I want to show you my own example of using of this technology so you can see how it has improved.

    Let us show the example of how login box is presented in Wild Apricot. While having fields to enter email and password on any page might be convenient in some cases, in other cases…

  14. background images in the navigation

    I have a left navigation menu, and would like to put separate background images in each menu item (not a single background image for the whole menu). I do not have any subpages, just the main level of links. I've done this before with a spry menu but can't figure out where to insert the backgrounds in all this CSS. Please help if you can! Thanks.

  15. Clone, Design, Build, & Launch.

    Many may not be aware of it, but you can ask Wild Apricot support to clone an existing site and thus you are able to perform all design and customization on the clone and not effect your live site. That is what we did for our latest custom design on http://www.naro-us.org/

    We requested their live site be cloned for us. Then we built the custom design on to the cloned site. Performed required revisions and cross-browser optimization. Once client signed off, we migrated design to the live site in under 45 minutes.

    So, the challenge of design and development on…

  16. Using custom fonts

    I I am wanting to use some custome fonts on my WA site - am not particularly fussed as to which method as long as it works.

    Of Cufon, SiFR and @fontface (CSS) methods avaiable, the latter is probably preferred.

    The problem I am encountering is the supporting file types (.eot, .ttf, etc) and where to host them as WA does not as far as I can see, support upload of these filetypes. I have tried imnplementing using remote hosting options, but it doesn't seem to want to play nicely.....

    Any suggestions as to a work around? (By the way,…

  17. CSS customization of site

    Here is my problem:

    The way that we are utilizing the Wild Apricot site is as a membership management site. We have an existing website that we are integrating some of the widget pages from WA, into. This means that for the most part, I simply need to modify many of the style settings of the widgets, to match the style of the existing website.

    At one point, I thought that I had done this. Then, somehow, the theme was changed. Now, the colors and text are different. I have literally put off going in to fix this because every…

  18. 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 /…

  19. Custom HTML Code Being Removed Upon Save

    I have a number of pages with custom <style> tags in the HTML. I add them by clicking Edit HTML on a specific page. I actually use them to override the user.css styles in the external style sheet.

    Example - I have some flash code for a rotating image banner in my footer. I only want to show this on my home page. So in my user.css file I add a style rule that hides it for all pages:

    idflashimage{display; none;}

    (I place the flash embed code inside a DIV that I have assigned an ID to and hide that)
