  1. Event Registration - replace "Nobody" ...

    When an event is enabled, but no one has yet registered, change the default from "nobody" to "Be the first".

    • Enable Event Calendar events to say "Registration is not yet open."

      Enable Event Calendar events to say "Registration is not yet open."

      I'm told by our organization that this is not possible, that if registration for an event, many of which are months away, is not yet open, the event listing automatically says "Registration is closed." This makes it appear that the event is full, or that the deadline has passed, surely costing us interested visitors and even reservations.

      How can this be fixed?

        • find all usages of a specific resource (e.g., image)

          I want to find all pages that are using a specific image. In WordPress, each image in the media folder indicates where in the site the image is used. Please add that to Wild Apricot!

          • Customize Upcoming Events gadget

            Is there a way to customize the Upcoming Events gadget? I'd like an easy way to show a condensed list of events. For example, we have board meetings once per month, same time and place - the only thing different is the date. I have filtered the events by tag (GREAT), but the list is still so big and cumbersome with the title, date, and location. I'd like to be able to show just the dates as links to the events. Is there a way to do this?

            • Best Solution for Displaying Members on a Map & Searching by Distance

              Introducing Apricot Maps
              by DotCreativity, a Wild Apricot Service Partner

              DotCreativity has setup custom member directories and proximity searches for Wild Apricot clients for the past 5 years. We have taken what we have learned and developed a new service which we are calling ApricotMaps.

              With this service, you can quickly set up a directory that would allow you display you members on an interactive map, as well search by zip code/location.

              Out of the box, you have three layout options available:

              * Map Only: https://www.apricotmaps.com/Map-Only
              * Listing Only: https://www.apricotmaps.com/Directory-Listing-Only
              * Map & Listing: https://www.apricotmaps.com/Map-and-Directory-Listing

              However, we can also set…

              • copy and paste bullets from word error

                When I copy and paste from Word anything with bullets, it formats with bullets plus a second bullet and 5 or so spaces. Seems like some kind of bug that can be fixed.

                • switch icon set

                  I'd like to be able to switch icon sets for a given theme, or modify the existing set. I've selected one of the whiteboard themes and ended up modifying pretty much all the colors in the theme...but the icon set (https://bfc.wildapricot.org/BuiltTheme/whiteboard_maya_blue.v3.0/b667a45d/images/icon_set.png) is still that brown color. I'd much prefer a grayscale option, OR to be able to upload my own in the accent color of my choosing.

                  • Find examples of or sharing of custom gadgets? Similar to how Axure has an entire community based sharing program.

                    I'm not even really sure where I am supposed to post this. I am looking for a community of Wild Apricot users who share code for custom widgets. Similar to http://www.axure.com/community/widget-libraries
                    I am a designer, not a developer and at the moment I am trying to figure out how to customize my search widget so that it's an expandable search, but I am sure as I progress I will be looking to customize even more and would really like to be able to pull from what others have done. I in turn would like to share any widget customization I…

                          If I have a Directory widget with a search field embedded on my website, whenever you visit that page, the browser jumps down to the search box.

                          Can I disable this?

                          • 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.

                                  I am evaluating WA for a client that is considering using it and am trying to get a grasp on how much we can customize the site.

                                  CSS and JavaScript can take you only so far so I am looking at theme overrides and the first thing I tried to do as a test case is to change the layout of the individual member profiles on the public-facing pages, which will be one of the requirements of the actual site. So I downloaded the theme and looked through both the files and the documentation on the site, but for the…

                                    • 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…

                                        • Help with CSS customization for theme

                                          Hello,

                                          I'm currently using the theme Whiteboard Knapsack Green on our Wildapricot site.

                                          I'd like to change the colour of the horizontal menu on our template pages. I was dismayed I can't do this through the theme customizations available.

                                          I have no idea how to do CSS customization but I figure this request might be easy?

                                          I'd be grateful if anyone could provide assistance with coding for changing the colour of the horizontal menu in a theme.

                                          Thanks in advance,

                                          Anthony
