  2. 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…

  4. 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 /…

  5. 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…

  6. 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…

  7. 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!

  8. 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 .

  11. Forum Gadget - Initial forum description should be part of forum topic

    It seems that every other forum I have used always lists the initial description with the title of the Forum Topic at the top. Replies to the topic are listed below. Your own WA support forums work that way!!

    The current forum gadget treats the initial description the same as one of the replies, so that it may appear at the top or bottom . depending on your settings. This is a problem and should be fixed.

  13. Differentiating between title text and alt text in the horizontal menu

    Does anyone know how to get access to the HTML of the menu to modify the title attribute text because it is the same as the alternative text.
