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. 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…

  3. Implementing Facebook Comments

    Facebook has a comment box widget that you can add to your website to all people to comment on your pages with or without logging in to Facebook. If the commenter logs in to Facebook in order to post they will also be given the option to post their comment on their Facebook profile as well which can help spread awareness of your site virally.

    Implementing the widget is easy. Before you can start using any Facebook widgets, you need to get an application ID from Facebook - you can do this be registering an application here: http://developers.facebook.com/setup

    Once you…

  4. Multi-Column Display for Single Browsing Categories

    Sometimes you only have one column for browsing but it's squeezed into a narrow column.

    You can scretch it out across the entire page using this CSS customization.

    Code

    idF1Options{width:950px;}

    idF1Options ul

    {

    width: 70em;
    

    }

    idF1Options ul li

    {

    float: left;
    
    width: 10em;

    }

    br
    {

    clear: left;
    

    }
    optionLink
    {

    margin-bottom: 2em;
    

    }

  5. Hide FREE Label next to Registration Title in Events

    Is there a way to hide the Free label that is appearing when I create an Event? It appears next to the Registration Title. It shows Tiitle - Free. See below.

    Also, is there a way to have the actual Registration button that you click to say something else? I would like for it to say Submit instead of Registration. Thank you.

  6. 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!

  8. Removing (administrator) text from forum and blog pages

    When an administrator with a public profile makes a post to the forum or blog, the name is suffixed "(administrator)". You can remove this text with the following CSS:

    SPAN.postedByComment {
    display: none
    }

  9. Pictures in the left Navigation Container?

    Hello,

    I have currently chose a hybrid template (main navigation on across the top, and sub-items along the left side), and have customized it a bit. http://www.rnlcny.org/Members The login box is also in the left submenu, although I have limited it to showing only on certian Members accessed pages.

    I would like to add more to the left Navigation Container, like a 200x100 picture that tell of an event or theme, or iframes or even widgets. If it was stacked from top to bottom, the navigation container would look like: Image, Sub-Items Menu, Log-in (that I've turned on for appriotate…

  10. Change position of the login box

    [quote]We currently use a template that uses that places the login box under the side menu. How can we move it to the top right in our header?[/quote]

    You can move your login box anywhere on the screen using the following CSS:
    #idLoginContainer {
    position: absolute;
    top: 10px;
    left: 720px;
    }

    Simply change the top and left values to move the login box to another location.
