  1. Login Button Link Color

    Hi All,

    I don't know CSS and there's one thing I want to change on my site: the font color in the login button gadget. I feel like I should be able to do this with the advanced settings in the gadget but I don't know how! I've read all the KB articles on customizing with CSS, customizing gadgets, etc and understanding CSS is a prerequisite.

    Many thanks.

    (the login button link colors are dark blue and disappear into the background image, I want them to be white)

  2. Horizontal Menu - Change Font Size

    Currently building our new site. We picked a theme that we like, however, we want the main horizontal menu bar to have a smaller font so that it fits more of our pages on the menu (and not hidden in the additional drop-down). Is a theme override really the only way to adjust the font smaller? We are using the Bookshelf Textbook theme, but would prefer to have the menu bar that's more similar to the Granite theme.

    Is there a straightforward way to make this change? Thanks in advance.

  3. HTML eMail without META tags makes RESPONSIVE design useless...

    Since the Wild Apricot HTML Editor removes META tags, the @media queries for mobile device responsive designs are useless, since the "<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width">" is lost and therefore on the mobile device the eMail app ignores them...

    Since Wild Apricot is "going Responsive" now, I strongly recommend that this is a part of the future too, there has to be responsiveness in eMail design to be complete.

    I spent couple of hours and trial and error until I noticed that the viewport meta tag is just removed and not my @media queries were wrong.

  5. Responsive slideshow with automatic width/height

    I'm experimenting with the WA slideshow gadget, but the problem I'm having seems to be with the choices for the sizing. It seems I can only choose from fixed layouts (16:9, 3:4, 1:1, or a fixed height). This works ok for camera photos that actually are in those aspect ratios but not so good for custom images like banners and header images which may have different aspect ratios such as being very long and rectangular (e.g., a 10:1 aspect ratio). Choosing the "Landscape 16:9" option displays the entire banner image, but it also puts a lot of whitespace above and…

  6. RSS Feed Widget

    I've tried some of the proposed rss feed widgets offered in other posts, but none of them seem to work very well in WA.

    Has anyone successfully got a free rss widget working inside WA?

    Thanks, Scott

  7. Customize membership application

    I would like to customize the membership application so that it will seamlessly integrate into my client's site. Questions:

    1) Is the membership application contained in the downloadable theme files, or is it not available to edited because it's functional? Is there a way to edit it's appearance?

    2) Can I make the "cancel" button return to the application rather than to the Wild Apricot homepage (which I don't intend anyone to ever see)?

    Thanks.

  11. Make a Parent Menu That Has Children Non-Clickable

    I found this Help page that outlines exactly what I need to do:

    http://help.wildapricot.com/display/DOC/Making+menu+items+not+clickable

    But I cannot get the execution to yield the correct results. The link says to copy and paste the CSS script into the 'Global javascript' section. Easy enough. Then I am supposed to add the PageID into the second to last line of code where the copied script currently has ("12345"). So, let's say the PageID that I want to hide is 1689200. So does my code look like this:

    disableLink("#PAGEID_1689188");

    or without quotes:

    disableLink(#PAGEID_1689188);

    or without the PAGEID prefix:

    disableLink("1689188"); OR disableLink(1689188);

    I am using…

  12. 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…

  14. linking to file in menu and having it open in new tab

    Hi folks,

    I've been playing with the page redirect script in the meta-tags of a menu item and it works great, but it performs the redirect within the same window. this is wonderful behavior sometimes, but other times, for instance when a menu item is a pdf file to be downloaded, it would be nice for that redirect to happen in a new tab. Anyone have any suggestions on how to make that happen?

    thanks,

    Matt

  15. Overall File Storage Limit

    I would love for the Storage Limit to be much larger. I would pay more $ for more space. I'm talking 10 to 25 GB. 1000 MB is not enough for business like mine to share larger documents, presentations, PDF's. Right now I am paying Dropbox.com for space for me and my colleagues to share information. That is $ you guys could be making. Maybe you guys can team up with Dropbox and profit off each other. Just a thought.

  16. Is it possible to adjust height of each blog snippet preview in the blog list view?

    The first thing you see when you click the blog menu is the blog snippet preview that displays the first few lines of each blog in a list.

    Is it possible to adjust the height of each blog snippet? My organization uses a blog to post its recent activities, and each blog article features a short intro, photos then a full-length write-up. Under the current setting, the blog preview snippet displays the intro and the top 10-30% of the ensuing photos. The top 10-30% usually means the ceilings or various venues where our events took place. If we could increase…

  19. Inserting PHP pages

    Hello,

    I'm relatively new to WA and new to the forum and have been unsuccessful finding the answer to this question here. Perhaps someone could kindly answer for me: Is there a way to insert PHP pages into WA, maybe via iframes or something similar?,

    I have a database that needs to serve a collection of PDF files to my WA site users, and the best way to do this would be to have a page inserted into the normal WA site that contains PHP code. I know you can add HTML and Javascript, but can PHP pages be used?…
