    • Top of Page Header Block

      Hi,

      I am trying to add a 64px square block repeat at the top of the page above the header and login area, but cannot get it to display. Have tried z-index, etc. Any suggestions?

      Thanks

      • WA Log-in box on non-WA hosted site without redirect

        Hello,

        Does anyone have any idea how to change the code to make this work or any ideas to help?

        I am setting up a website for a small volunteer organization. I have both a WA site set up and a non-WA hosted site. The non-WA hosted site is the main site and I am utilizing a lot of WA widgets on that site, for example signing up for events, joining the organization, viewing the membership directory, etc. Visitors to the website should never leave the actual non-WA site.

        I have several widgets behind the "members only section". I can…

        • Make Granite conform to a fixed width

          Seems like Granite has variable width for header/content/footer.

          I'd like to use a fixed width... haven't been able to find this in the CSS.

          Has anyone out there dealt with this or can point me in the right direction ?

          Thanks!

              • WA widgets from an external site working but look bad

                Greetings,

                I'm using the WA back end with an external site. The widgets work but the display doesn't look good. The iframe shows part of the WA header in the display. Here's a link so you can see what I'm talking about (all you'll see is a log in dialog):

                http://66.147.244.109/~ifcaonli/wordpress2/?page_id=2345

                Note the orange bar. That is part of the header that used in the current WA look and feel, which we're linking to. If you scroll to the right, you can see blue and green bars also. Can I get rid of that? I guess I could change the…

                    • Revise css for editing overlay

                      I changed a fluid layout to a fixed layout, via css, with a centered layout. Now the dotted boxes that comprise the editing overlays are out of alignment to the new fixed layout.

                      Does anyone know which css file controls the editing overlays? I've been told by Customer Support that these overlays can be edited.

                      Thanks!

                      • Sys.PaymentInfo info.

                        Of all the Theme Overrides, this particular page seems to be the page that would be viewed after a payment, but its one of the few gadgets with no documentation.

                        Can anyone clue me in on what this page/gadget represents, and when do we see this page, and what are the variables associated with this page?

                        (New to Theme Overrides..)

                        • subscription confirmation form

                          Hello............

                          When someone subscribes for a membership there is a subscription confirmation form.

                          I have another form on the contact page -

                          http://knowledgebasedparenting.com/contact-knowledge-based-parenting.html

                          This is for anyone (non-members) to subscribe to a newsletter.

                          The newsletter subscriber goes in the Contact list as a non member, non event and non donor.

                          1. Is there a way to have subscribers to this form be listed under Attention required? Or some other designation ie. Public Newsletters?

                          2. I also don't want the subscription confirmation form sent to them. Is there a way to do this?

                          Thanks

                          • Customizing the Header

                            Hi All,

                            I would like to have a header with a static image on the top and a rotating banner ad under it.(all within the header)

                            I can get the script to work just fine however when i increase the height of the header to the max of 300 pixial the static image repeats or tiles. Does any one know how to make this work.

                            Thanks,

                            Frank

                            • Help with custom CSS for image outline

                              Hi,

                              I am using the following css to add a nice simple border/outline to my images. It is working great, but I don't necessarily want it on ALL images. Is there a way to just add a style to "part" of a page. For example...I would want the border/outline around pictures but not graphics like logos, etc.

                              Thanks for help, Amy

                              {
                              border:6px solid white;
                              outline:grey solid thin;

                                  • Size of box on events page

                                    I'm new to Wild Apricot and know nothing about CSS (or any other type!) of code.

                                    I want to change the size of the box on my Events page but have been told by support that they are fixed and can only be changed by changing the CSS code. Can anyone tell me how to do that?

                                      I am new with the Wild Apricot site. How do I set a link on a web page to a folder or file that I just uploaded in File Management?

                                      • Social Login platform integration

                                        I am toying with the idea of using a social login product such as Janrain engage (http://www.janrain.com/products/engage/social-login ) as a way to increase my social media presence (I run a social club, so it make sense to optimise the use of social media for cross promotion).

                                        Has anyone tried this on any WA sites? I found a couple of posts asking about facebook connect and linkedin integration, but not much else.

                                        Surely it would be reasonably straight forward. I don't consider myself to be a developer, but know more than enough to get myself in and out of webworld…

                                        • custom style 1 in normal text block

                                          Hi,

                                          I applied Custom Style 1 to my gadgets, but I would also like the same look to the normal text block next to them. How can I do this?

                                          Thanks!

                                          Keith
