  1. How do I make the site width wider on desktop view while keeping the responsive behavior for mobile devices?

    How do I make the site width wider on desktop view while keeping the responsive behavior for mobile devices?

    My website is www.lssworld.org. on the desktop it is too narrow, that makes it look very outdated. I would like to make the width 1200 px or 1400 and still maintain the responsiveness.

    I have a CSS code for making the site wider but it also makes the site non-responsive. Does someone have the CSS code for this?

  4. Adjust IFrame size on directory

    Be able to adjust the Iframe on the membership directory width as well as the display for the search. It's too small and restrictive now.

  5. switch icon set

    I'd like to be able to switch icon sets for a given theme, or modify the existing set. I've selected one of the whiteboard themes and ended up modifying pretty much all the colors in the theme...but the icon set (https://bfc.wildapricot.org/BuiltTheme/whiteboard_maya_blue.v3.0/b667a45d/images/icon_set.png) is still that brown color. I'd much prefer a grayscale option, OR to be able to upload my own in the accent color of my choosing.

  6. Registration Form "Additional Guest" confusion

    Currently when a person registers for an event and is buying for multiple people they have to add the number of additional guests to the registration. Themselves plus the additional people.
    This is confusing a numbers of our customers who are buying one too many tickets because they are entering the total number of guests, not the number of additional guests.

    Is there a way to change the wording on this to make it easier to understand or perhaps ask for the total number of guests? If someone has examples on how to do this it would be much appreciated.

  7. scrollbars

    I have embedded several WA widgets in my WordPress website for a client. I've used the CSS suggested to redce the size of the widget, but I want to make the content fit my webpage. I've attached a screenshot of one instance at http://www.shrmwaco.com/meetings-and-events/upcoming-hotshrm-events/ . Can you help? Thank you so much!

  8. 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.

  9. 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>

  10. 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.

  11. 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)

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  15. 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…

  16. Gadget within HTML gadget

    Is it possibly embed a Wild Apricot gadget inside the custom HTML gadget. I have a header coded with custom html, but I would like to put a login link there, a search box etc. Is there a list of functions to call specific gadgets within html?

    Thanks!

  17. 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

  18. 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.
