  2. 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…

  4. 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…

  10. How can I remove certain tabs in the "My Profile" page?

    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"

    I have a good understanding of CSS but since I cannot see the code in front of me, I do not want to risk executing the…

  11. Removing (administrator) text from forum and blog pages

    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:

  14. Implementing Facebook Comments

    Facebook has a comment box widget that you can add to your website to all people to comment on your pages with or without logging in to Facebook. If the commenter logs in to Facebook in order to post they will also be given the option to post their comment on their Facebook profile as well which can help spread awareness of your site virally.

    Implementing the widget is easy. Before you can start using any Facebook widgets, you need to get an application ID from Facebook - you can do this be registering an application here: http://developers.facebook.com/setup

  15. Adobe Typekit and Google WebFonts

    Hiyah,

    I am trying to use Adobe Typekit or Google WebFonts in the design of my site.

    Am having difficulty getting either to work.

    I have tried two methods with Typekit, having inserted Typekit's two lines of code into the <head> section of each page by using the Meta-Tags>Raw Headers window.

    1) - using CSS customisations to generate a custom class:


    • then using that to surround some text:

    <h1asd> Test text </h1asd>

    This method has no effect

    2) using span class on the page, to reference 'h1asd' defined in typekit as a

    <span class="h1asd">Test text</span>

    This method has no effect…

  16. Help with a slideshow

    Hello,

    First post to the forum. I was wondering if anyone had a nice program to use to integrate an EASY to use slideslow into my webpage that flips through a few photos or figures. I tried using Picasa to do the HTML code but I am not sure where the photos need to be and how I then tweak the code.

    Thanks for your help

  17. Pictures in the left Navigation Container?

    Hello,

    I have currently chose a hybrid template (main navigation on across the top, and sub-items along the left side), and have customized it a bit. http://www.rnlcny.org/Members The login box is also in the left submenu, although I have limited it to showing only on certian Members accessed pages.

    I would like to add more to the left Navigation Container, like a 200x100 picture that tell of an event or theme, or iframes or even widgets. If it was stacked from top to bottom, the navigation container would look like: Image, Sub-Items Menu, Log-in (that I've turned on for appriotate…

  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.

  19. Javascript Libraries

    I am wondering if WA works with an External Javascript Library/Framework (i.e. jQuery, Spry, etc.).

    I already added the library I need to the site via the Global Javascript Settings, but it does not provide the intended functionality. it seems that the library does not work with WA.

    I need to create a custom menu for my client. I have used the Theme Overrides and modified the appropriate String Template files to achieve the custom menu structure that I need. However, when I apply the Spry Framework that is needed to create the menu functionality, it breaks.

    My question is…

  20. Move login box from top right to below navigation menu

    How do I move the login box from the top right of the site to below the navigation menu on the left. I know how to move the absolute position of the login box, but I want to position it so that it moves up or down as the navigation menu changes. For example, if a user clicks on a menu item that drops down 4 sub-menu items I want the login box to also drop down. If I just use absolute positioning the login box either gets overlapped when sub-menus drop down or has to be positioned so far…
