  1. Hide "Member Since" Field in Member Profile

    I am importing members from an old database to WA. I want to hide the "Member Since" field from member's profiles since it only reflects the import date and I actually have no idea when some of these members joined the organization.

  2. How to hide 'session' label in event title from Upcoming events gadget

    When you create multi-session event, the Upcoming event gadget displays session number in the title of event.
    We received several requests from users to hide this. As quick solution you can use the following JS code:
    <script type="text/javascript">
    $(function()
    {
    if( $('.WaGadgetUpcomingEvents').size() )
    {
    $('.WaGadgetUpcomingEvents a:contains("(session")').each(function()
    { var text = $(this).html(); var newText = text.replace(/(\s+(session[\w\s]+))/, ""); $(this).html(newText); }
    );
    }
    });
    </script>

  3. Adding Second PayPal Account?

    We have an event coming up where the payments go into a separate PayPal account from our organization's main PayPal because it has an entirely separate budget.
    Membership, Workshop fees go to the main CMAG account, which is already set up on the site. Registration fees for our Spring Show go into an account specifically set up for the Spring Show's separate budget.

    Is there some way to add this second account to our financial settings? I've looked & I can't find any way to do it. The payments really do need to be kept separate.

  4. 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.

    https://tscc.wildapricot.org/

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

  5. 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.

  6. 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…

  8. 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…

    Is there a way to remove, or move, the image count display in the PHoto Album title?

    I would like to see it formatted differently and placed in the upper right of the page.

  10. 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…

  11. 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…

  15. Hi Designers and Developers - Introduce yourself

    It's no secret that Wild Apricot has many tools for associations and other organizations, but what isn't so well known is that we have a growing set of tools for designers and developers to create beautiful websites for all these associations and organizations.

    But we're changing that today with the launch of the "For Designers and Developers" forum (formerly the "Customization" forum ).

    And the title really says it all, this is forum is specifically for designers and developers to:
    * Share design tips and tricks
    * Showcase their designs
    * Suggest Improvements to our design tools
    * ... and…

  16. Dual Language Toggle - bilingual sites

    We have pretty much perfected a process that will allow for Wild Apricot sites to feature and support multiple languages. Wait we are not talking about translating content, rather hiding pages from one language from being seen or navigable via the nav while the user has toggled a language option. When we install and customize our code to your Wild Apricot site, we are able to hide French language pages from displaying when the user clicks the toggle to English for example.

    Wanna see this in action? Certainly, here you go:http://www.latinohotelassociation.org Spanish / English Language Togglehttp://copeh-canada.roundtablelive.org French /…

  17. Are you a designer? We want your feedback!

    We're want to create more resources for anyone who designs sites on top of Wild Apricot. But as always we're looking to get your input first.
    To get the ball rolling here are some ideas we've been thinking about.
    1) Wild Apricot Web Designer Guide (online/e-book) - A detailed guide to all the structural CSS elements of a page, including a cookbook (recipe) approach to customizations. 2) Wild Apricot 'Designer Community' (online only) - Move all customization/design resources to a new location (i.e., outside of forums and help) built just for designers to discuss, share and learn different techniques for…

  18. Please share your Wild Apricot websites with cool design or features

    I would love to see more examples of what people have done with their pages. It is stoo hard to comb through the posts to find those who have given their websites to you guys. Seeing examples really helps me get ideas and it also shows the capability of the system. It would be nice if you created a section in the forum for people to showcase their websites.

    Thanks!

  19. Is there a gadget that can be used to allow members to enter Information?

    We have several "sign up" sheets for our club. For instance people sign up to get tables and chairs ready for meetings. Currently the webmaster is entering the information into an HTML table and displaying it in a Content gadget. Ideally we would put a form on the website with Months as a label with a field that people can enter their name into. Is there any way to publish a form that people can make entries into?

  20. Moving the Register button up on repeated event page?

    Is it possible to move the Register button above the list of sessions on a repeated Event page?

    We are using repeated events for a weekly activity, and the list of sessions pushes the Register button down off the page. See https://tyc.org/event-3076030 .
