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.
I love your login box treatment. Are you willing to share how you implemented?
Thanks in advance.
This organization is using both - if you look at any member-related or event pages you'll see it's using Wild Apricot for those functions:
Actually this is a good example of integrating a Word Pres site with Wild Apricot. You'll notice this once you click on the become a member icon (top right) and then view the source of that page :)
I like it! How did you get the rotating images on the header?

Um, I just looked at their site and it looks like it's a Wordpress blog now. View the source and you'll see what I mean.
Institute of Industrial Simulation (IIS). Here is the link:
yes I can see your point.
This would be for those who have limited space, to have the option to give different login options. www.kailuachamber.com is a good example. It took away from the header to have a box there and with us adding more and more advertising to the side bar it got lost.
Though my personal opinion is that for usability reasons showing login fields makes it easier for people to find/recognize login for what it is.
Wanted to share what we did with the login box on this site. I like this better and am going to change the other site we did which I am finally getting around to the design on.
Maybe this is something you guys can offer as an option in the future?
(it is still in progress, so excuse grainy headers!)
Sherrie, thanks, looks good!
