What can we do to make it easier to design with Wild Apricot?

Minimal, Standards Based Theme?

They there, new to the system, working on customizing a site off of the Granite theme.

But before I go too much further, I was wondering it there were any themes that were based on modern day web standards. IE, not using tables, minimal div markup. Maybe even using HTML5 semantic markup?

The less "designed" the better.

Thanks!

        Any progress on better, simpler themes? I see you were going to complete five months ago?

        Also any movement on responsive themes?

        Thanks

        Any progress on a standards based theme? Something that doesn't use tables for layout? I'm worried about your theme override system as it can too easily break functionality of things that I don't' even know are there.

        Preferably something that doesn't have 30 nested divs and tables for a two column layout?

        We don't a widget with this option but you could use a combination of CSS/JS and or Theme Overrides to accomplish something like this. If you have a specific site where you're trying this I might be able to give some pointers.

        Thanks for the info. I'll keep driving. Quick question for you then...

        Was wanting one section (but not all) to display a sidebar nav of it's sibling pages. Didn't see a widget to provide this. Is there a way to accomplish this easily?

        We don't have any Themes that are using HTML5 yet but the Granite series of Themes are the most streamlined themes. So I would recommend starting with those.

        You can also strip down these themes further via Theme Overrides (see http://help.wildapricot.com/display/DOC/Theme+Overrides )

        We'll also be publishing a tutorial on how to strip down these themes in the coming weeks.
