This forum is for any designer (new and old) who is involved in the design of a Wild Apricot based websites.

  1. 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…

  2. 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…

  3. Image count in Photo Album title

    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.

    Thanks!

  4. linking to file in menu and having it open in new tab

    Hi folks,

    I've been playing with the page redirect script in the meta-tags of a menu item and it works great, but it performs the redirect within the same window. this is wonderful behavior sometimes, but other times, for instance when a menu item is a pdf file to be downloaded, it would be nice for that redirect to happen in a new tab. Anyone have any suggestions on how to make that happen?

    thanks,

    Matt

  5. Overall File Storage Limit

    I would love for the Storage Limit to be much larger. I would pay more $ for more space. I'm talking 10 to 25 GB. 1000 MB is not enough for business like mine to share larger documents, presentations, PDF's. Right now I am paying Dropbox.com for space for me and my colleagues to share information. That is $ you guys could be making. Maybe you guys can team up with Dropbox and profit off each other. Just a thought.

  6. 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…

  9. Inserting PHP pages

    Hello,

    I'm relatively new to WA and new to the forum and have been unsuccessful finding the answer to this question here. Perhaps someone could kindly answer for me: Is there a way to insert PHP pages into WA, maybe via iframes or something similar?,

    I have a database that needs to serve a collection of PDF files to my WA site users, and the best way to do this would be to have a page inserted into the normal WA site that contains PHP code. I know you can add HTML and Javascript, but can PHP pages be used?…

  11. 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…

  13. 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 / English…

  14. 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…

  15. I've never seen a system so difficult to customize

    I am a designer and have been trying for three days to make my layout look like the client's site.

    Client's site design: www.wbninc.com/dev/

    WA site: members.wbninc.com

    The code is so completely convoluted and bloated, I still can't figure out why my page and contents (including my header image when I put it in there) are being resized smaller. I can't get rid of the insane padding around the page content.

    Isn't there a way to start with practically nothing and build from there, instead of having to strip out tons of css?

    Has anyone figured out how to put…

  16. 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!

  17. 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 .
