  2. Submenu width too narrow - truncating type

    I'm using Starlight Granite theme, originally a liquid layout. I've changed the theme to a fixed width layout, to preserve size and placement of images on home page.

    However, the submenus are not wide enough to fit all my type. According to WA support, there was a bug, and they sent me a piece of CSS code, which did not work, due to my adjusting the theme from liquid to fixed.

    So I'm reaching out to the user community, especially those CSS experts, to determine if I can set my submenus to a wider width, and still retain my fixed…

  4. Limiting the size of the multi-line text field

    By default, the multi-line text field has a limit of 3000 characters.

    With some Javascript code, this limit can be reduced. The following code will limit the field to 500 characters. Change the boxlength value to set your own limit.

    Insert the following code under Settings > Global Javascript:

    <script type="text/javascript"> var boxlength = 500; if(document.getElementsByTagName('TEXTAREA')){ var txts = document.getElementsByTagName('TEXTAREA'); for(var i = 0, l = txts.length; i < l; i++) { var func = function() { if(this.value.length > boxlength) { alert('Maximum length exceeded: ' + boxlength); this.value = this.value.substr(0, boxlength); return false; } } txts[i].onkeyup = func; txts[i].onblur =…

  6. Theme override- determining what menu items to show in header

    Hi -

    I'm using theme overrides and don't want all of the menu items to show in the header.

    I'm using the following code right now...

    <$Model.Items:

    {

    <a class="no-underline" href="<$it.Url$>"><div class="header-nav"><$it.Title$></div></a>

    }$>

    One of the items I don't want to produce and <a> tag for is the home page. Also, if a person is signed in I don't want the Join / Register page to show.

    thanks,

    Rob

  8. Enabling lower case in left nav

    I want to use lower case letters in the left navigation of our website astdatlanta.org

    When I create a new page with a title such as SIGs-GIGs, it shows as SIGS-GIGS.

    I tried working with the colors and fonts but they have no effect.

    I am not sure which CSS is controlling this area.

  9. Removing hyperlinks from event gadgets

    Trying to figure out how I remove the hyperlink from the event gadget? I want to use the event gadget on home page of my web site so the "next" meeting is always current, but because my web site is not a WA site, I have the gadget in an iframe. My problem is the hyperlink on the event title opens the event in the iframe and I don't want it to do this.

    So, I want to either:


    • remove the hyperlink from the events gadget; or


    • modify the hyperlink so it goes to a different page


    Can anyone help…

  10. IE issues Editing Content

    Just finished customizing our website however now we're unable to edit it right with IE. The content areas wont grow, the text is going off the left and right margins, and the green edit window moves depending on how big your resolution is.

    It works fine in IE document mode 8+ and with other browsers. However WA seems to default to document mode 7.

    Am I missing something here? Has anyone else ran into this issue?

    Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!!

  11. [CUSTOMIZATION] Chat Box & Video Uploads For Members

    It would be nice if my members could upload videos of themselves to their profile page and they've been asking if there's a chat box so that they can chat with other members who are online.

    The ability for them to personalize their profile pages with css or html like myspace couldn't hurt neither...

    Thanks,

    Rob

    ps. I love this site so far.

  13. Wild Apricot removes code for social media sharing buttons during "cleaning HTML" process.

    Wild Apricot removes code for social media sharing buttons during "cleaning HTML" process. The code that I'm trying to incorporate into my site is as follows (from ShareThis.com):

    <span class='sttwitterlarge' ></span><span class='stfacebooklarge' ></span><span class='stemaillarge' ></span><span class='stsharethislarge' ></span>

    Is there any reason why WIld Apricot is trying to get rid of this code?

  14. Add button over the Home link in the left navigation

    I would like to put a button for Joining or Renewing Membership above the Home link in the left navigation area. See www.astd.org for a visual example of what I want to accomplish.

    I see documentation about putting content under the menu but not above.

    Is this possible?

  19. Hiding the stop recurring button

    When a member signs into the site, and then looks up their profile, they have an option to stop recurring payments of their membership fees.

    How do we hide the "Stop recurring payment" button so they do not have the option of stopping recurring payments?

    What is the css code?

    Please help! Thank you.

  20. Hiding Sub-Menus (in members section)

    Is there a method for not having sub-pages show up as a sup-menu? I don't want any sub-menus on my site.

    For example, when a user logs in and reaches the main members section, every sub-section is listed in an ever growing menu below the main menu. This is distracting as there is already a table of contents-like menu listed on the main page.
