  1. Using macros in a page content

    Could you consider a feature by which administrators can add MACRO's to the members only pages similar to the features available to us in confirmation emails?

    I remember reading somewhere in the help area (and I cannot find it now) where one can add "Welcome [[INSERT NAME HERE]]" to the members only home page but I remember the process being quite tedious.

    When my members login, I like to have a simple message that says

    Welcome [[name]]Your [[membership level]] expires on [[Renewal Due Date]]

    • Ability to close site to public/member access for maintenance procedures

      We will need to export the entire membership list and purge many listings with undeliverable email addresses. It will then take a brief period of time to delete the existing list and upload the corrected one. Is there some sort of "Temporarily Closed for Maintenance -- Please Try Again in 15 Minutes" procedure for this?

      WA replied "Unfortunately, we do not have this feature. For now, you would have to do this either at night or earlier in the morning. But this sounds like a good idea and I would suggest to add it to our Wishlist so other people…

      • Simplifying embedding videos

        I've started putting video on our website, and I have to go into the HTML and embed the code. This can be a pain when I don't know HTML almost at all, and the code from youtube looks different than some other site's code. In fact I did try to put a video up, and the section of the site was blank for a bit, till I got help from Chris at Nicasio.I also had problems putting video in the blog section.

        So it would be most helpful to have some tools to more easily embed audio/video files. You really…

        • Allow parent-child relationship and ordering for Non-Menu Pages

          My Wildapricot Membership Backend is getting MESSY! I am not able to organize "Non-Menu" items to have "children"

          Is there something in the works where I can create a page and then create SUBPAGES that are Not Menu Items?

          When I click on Reorder my Pages, it only allows this functionality for Menu Items.

          Thank You

          • Provide secure FTP to Resources folder, WebDav is too slow and unreliable

            File upload via the main files 'widget' is slow and cumbersome, and WebDav uploads are very slow, and often unreliable. Secure FTP should be straightforward to implement, and would make life much simpler when managing large numbers of files.

            • Control access level for specific gadget on a page - e.g. show some gadgets to specific membership levels only

              Improving the process of restricting/allowing access to 1 screen.

              Currently it is a complex process that often results in unanticipated results . . . or inability to properly configure that ultimately requires technical support. The process is not intuitive.

              It is not easy to manage access to a gadget by membership level and/or group when a gadget is on a page that may or may not be restricted by membership level and/or group.

              Allow setting permissions and access by membership levels and/or groups for pages, and for certain gadgets on one page. And make the selections obvious and intuitive so…

              • Ability to change all Pages / System Page Templates at once/in bulk

                Hello - this is in regards to Version 5.

                It would be nice to be able to change the page template all system pages at once, or be given the option to update all system pages when a new default page template is selected. Currently we have to edit each system page to update it to the new default template.

                  • Hide a menu link from header when member is logged it

                    I am wanting to customize the header navigation when a member logs in. Basically my customer has a tab that says "Why Join". They would like for that to vanish when logged in. This will allow for the navigation not to wrap or cause other issues in the navigation

                    I am wondering if Wild Apricot has 2 header files or any suggestions on how to handle this.

                    Thanks in advance.

                    • Creating More Dynamic Web Pages - Database API Required?

                      I would like to be able to pull individual data fields from the contact database and insert them dynamically within my content. This would, I feel, make pages more dynamic, reduce my workload, allow a high level of personaliation of member content and, I feel, enable member websites to become a little more sticky, creative and innovative. What do you think?

                      For example, I'd like to personalise content for each chapter/member but the content would be the same for each chapter/member. With the current system every time I create a new piece of content I then have to dupliate that…

                      • Control size and number of pictures members can add to their photo albums

                        We allow our members to upload photos into a photo album shown with their Profile. Our level allows each image to be up to 25MB and that is way too big for viewing satisfactorily and will also use up our maximum allowed MB in no time. We also have no way to limit the number of images in an album. The automatic features of limiting how many albums there are is nice as is the automatic thumbnail feature with a click to show the full image. However, we really need to be able to control the number and size of…

                        • add a visitors counter to our website

                          From time to time we receive questions at our support like "I want to add a visitors counter to our website. Telling a user: "Your are visitor number: #".

                          From design point of view and the current state of web development, visitors counters (or hit counters) are mostly considered as outdated, not used any more. But it still might be important for you and so I decided to create a wishlist thread to collect your opinions on that.

                          Please, share your thoughts!

                          • Change UI for "Date" Field Type - show separate year, month and day selection

                            In developing a membership registration form for our website, I am looking to include a "Date of Birth" field. However, the "Date" field type appears to only allow one method of entering a date. In our organization, there are many members who are older, and for whom the date entry requires navigation to their respective year of birth, which presents difficulty due to the method of data entry, and the propensity of our older members to be uncomfortable using computers.

                            (Admittedly, the calendar default of starting on today's date does lend itself to certain types of fields, like booking hotels…

                              • Member-focused SEO - i.e. how many views/visits on a member's profile page, search terms used to find member

                                I thought it would be good to have a "Member-focused SEO" category here, because there are several SEO-related features (not 301 redirects) that my client's members have requested.

                                Since switching to WA 4 months ago, there has been some attrition of members because more and more, people are seeking better SEO placement through membership organization websites. Their biggest motivation in joining is for the public to be able to find them.

                                Specifically requested features:

                                --Customized URL's for publicly viewable member profile pages (so we can include member or practice names in the URL)

                                --SEO index (.xml) *including member pages* and…

                                • Ability to add CSS IDs / class names to page templates

                                  It would be very helpful to be able to target a particular page template, as each page template within a particular website theme uses the same IDs and classes for it's hard coded elements.

                                  I can workaround this by targeting each page ID, but being able to target each page template would be very helpful.

                                    Add a "skip navigation feature" to allow keyboard users to skip over the navigation menus, when they are tabbing thru links on a page. (explanation: http://webaim.org/techniques/skipnav/#focus).

                                    These features would make the sites more accessible to disabled users (people who cannot use mouse, blind people using screenreader software, etc) and help make…

                                    • Website theme description (description, features, constrains) to simplify selection

                                      It would be great if beside each theme offered, there were a description of its main features and constraints, i.e: dynamic/flyout or static, dimensions of the header (if static - not sure how you would describe it if dynamic), easily replaceable elements, etc.

                                      Thank you!

                                      • Remove tooltips from the menu bar

                                        To me the tooltips are not useful on the menu bar because the tooltip simply repeats the name of the menu item
                                        http://screencast.com/t/X2gdxssSFJg
                                        and worse than that, often obscure items in the menu below.

                                        Is there any positive impact they are supposed to have?

                                        If not, I would vote to have them removed (or made possible to remove) in the next release of the system version.

                                        • Viewing gadget in page templates when editing...

                                          Editing in page templates would be much more efficient if the specific gadgets in each placeholder were visible just as they are when editing in site pages. Currently the gadgets are not visible; I have to go back several times to change/check the gadget and/or placeholder. Please make it a priority to give users the ability to see the gadgets in page templates instead of seeing "Page specific gadgets used on 1 page(s)" in every placeholder.

                                          Thanks!
