  1. leaf image in the tranquility template

    I want to change the leaf in the gadget. I see the png in the theme override folder. If I just use webdav to override the image with one of the same size will I destroy anything.

    When i am in webdav I see the folder but not the actual files.

    Also, i didn't see a button for "Activate Override" like the "help" pdf shows.

  4. Aurora Hybrid Footer Height

    I've been playing around with the custom CSS for the footer of our site: http://www.coamp.org and I'm having trouble figuring out the correct container or style to modify the footer height. I've found the container that holds the footer content, but this doesn't modify the size of the colored footer container.

    Can someone help out with some custom css that I can throw in to modify the height of the footer as needed. The current footer is big and clunky looking and I'm trying to shrink it down some. Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Jason

  5. Code to add Pinterest to WA site??

    Hello,

    Now that WA is on Pinterest, are there any plans to provide instructions for WA users to add Pinterest Board Widgets to our sites? I've followed all of the instructions on the Pinterest site to no avail. I'm sure there a simple trick to adding the code to WA.

    Thanks!!

  7. Login Box Text When Logged Off is Unviewable

    I would be willing to pay for this help if not too costly!

    http://knowledgebasedparenting.com

    Re: Top right login box.

    How do I adjust height specifically? I have gone into css below - I changed height from 135 to 145 but nothing happens when I insert css into the css customization page.

  8. Resizing Widgets

    Hi,

    I'm new to Wild Apricot and am using Widgets to add functionality into my business site. I'm close to getting ready to launch soon. I cannot figure out how to resize or change the background color using the widgets codes.

    Here is my website where you can see the black background and the widget doesn't fill nearly enough of the available space. I don't want people to have to scroll through the information.

    http://www.minglesingles.com/membership.html and

    http://www.minglesingles.com/event-calendar.html

    I tried doing the resizing using the following http://help.wildapricot.com/display/DOC/Changing+the+widget+width but nothing changed so I'm at a loss of how to use this. Any…

  9. Moving Login in theme?

    I have tried a couple of methods to move the login but I think I am over thinking it all.

    On our page (aibl.org) the login/logout info was at the top right had (per that theme). I changed it but now I just have a link to login. Users want to be able to login/logout the same way they did when is was at the top. Anyone know how I can place the default login/logout where I have that simple link on the left under my menu?

  10. Is this possible?

    Hi everyone,

    My client has engaged a designer to produce a design for her WA site, however it looks beyond my ability to customise Wild Apricot.

    I'll be doing all the events/membership stuff in the engine room, plus I could do simple modifications to a WA theme.

    They originally designed it to be used for a Wordpress site, but I'm not sure it can be easily incorporated into a Wild Apricot modified theme?

    I've attached a screenshot link below.

    Screenshot https://my.syncplicity.com/share/lzlwv2skqd/JULIANNA_&_FRIENDS_WEBSITE-_HOME_PAGE_1-01

    The original graphics are in a psd file.

    If its not easy to do, I'd like to find someone…

  11. Preventing the header image from repeating on the Granite theme

    The Granite theme will repeat the header image horizontally by default. Although this is useful for tiled images, it does not look nice for single header images.

    Add this CSS to Settings > CSS Customization to disable the horizontal repeat: #idHeaderContainer .d1 .d2 { background-repeat: no-repeat; }

  13. 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…

  15. 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 =…

  17. 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

  19. 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.

  20. 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…
