  1. 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.

        • Make top of Welcome Page appear when someone goes to the website

          I am not sure what the correct category for my question/idea is. When users go to our organizations website, the bottom of the Welcome page is displayed rather than the top with the Theme header. This behavior also occurs with another organization's website who also uses Wild Apricot. It annoys our users to have to scroll up to the top. How do I fix it?

          • 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>

              • Overide theme not working for me - what am I doing wrong?

                Hi. I am trying to override the navigational/horizontal menu theme for my site. The theme is Skyline Downtown. Three things I want to override:
                1. remove the dots that indicate there is a second level of navigation.
                2. Change the color and location of the selected state rule
                3. Remove the blue rule that runs at the bottom of the menu

                I accessed two .less files that I think I needed to work with:
                A. constants.less
                B. gadget.menu.horizontal.less

                I made the changes in both.
                I uploaded those files and then clicked the "rebuild themes" button. Nothing has changed. Any ideas…

                  • Find examples of or sharing of custom gadgets? Similar to how Axure has an entire community based sharing program.

                    I'm not even really sure where I am supposed to post this. I am looking for a community of Wild Apricot users who share code for custom widgets. Similar to http://www.axure.com/community/widget-libraries
                    I am a designer, not a developer and at the moment I am trying to figure out how to customize my search widget so that it's an expandable search, but I am sure as I progress I will be looking to customize even more and would really like to be able to pull from what others have done. I in turn would like to share any widget customization I…

                                Our company wants to use the WA website as little as possible so as to funnel most people through our main website. We want to strip down as much as can lead to confusion as possible in the WA website.

                                We wish to remove three tabs in the "My Profile" page which we have no use for and will just confuse our members. We only want to keep "My Profile" and "Invoices and Payments"

                                • 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!

                                    When an administrator with a public profile makes a post to the forum or blog, the name is suffixed "(administrator)". You can remove this text with the following CSS:

                                    SPAN.postedByComment {
                                    display: none
