  1. v2.1 getEventDetails returns 404 for existing events

    I have a list of event IDs that I need to verify still exist in WildApricot. For some of them, the call to /accounts/{accountId}/events/{eventId} returns a 404, even though I can search and find them in the admin UI (Events > Event List). I am not passing any filters to the API call.

    Any ideas why the API returns a 404?

  3. Add or update site content via API

    We want to be able to update selected pages and content blocks via the API. For example, our finance committee creates a monthly report that we'd like to publish as an HTML page. Allowing us to PUT and POST content would be very helpful.

  5. Additional, Administrator-defined, Optionally-searchable Content Types

    Think it would be quite useful to have the ability to (optionally) define additional "Content Types", i.e., types other than the default set already provided (Page contents, Blogs, Forums, Events, & Public Member profiles).

    This capability would add an important, new dimension to the site wide Search Gadget, and would provide a user-configurable means to manage the scope of a user's search capability, by role!

    Such that:

    1. Any number of additional (optionally-defined) content types can be established by a site administrator

    2. These optionally-defined content types can be administrator-selected for inclusion/exclusion: (a) By role and (b) In the site…

  6. Search Results by State

    It seems that when setting a contact/member's address you can choose for the "State" field either the full state name or the standard two-character abbreviation.

    When adding the "State" field to a Member Directory search, you have to search specifically for EITHER the state name or abbrevation.

    It seems to me that there should be an option (or perhaps it should be by default) that the results returned for any one particularly state should include BOTH those contacts with the state name and state abbreviation.

    Why would you ever want to have separate database stores for the two different naming…

  7. Cancel Registration API

    We need to be able to cancel registrations via the API. The only option currently is to delete the registration, which is far from ideal since there is no longer any record of the registration in WA, and no way to restore the registration manually.

  8. Sending email via API

    I'm trying to use the send email API call - https://app.swaggerhub.com/apis-docs/WildApricot/wild-apricot_public_api/2.1.0#/Emailing.Operations/SendEmail but not having any luck.

    I've tried from the API browser and via a Google Apps script. In both, I just get a 400 error.

    I'm POSTing to https://api.wildapricot.org/v2.1/rpc/<ACCOUNT>/email/sendemail, with this as my body:
    {
    "Subject": "test email",
    "Body": "test email",
    "Recipients": [
    {
    "Id": 0,
    "Type": "IndividualRecipient",
    "Name": "test",
    "Email": "<HIDDEN>"
    }
    ],
    "EventId": <EVENTID>
    }

    (account, email and event id have been hidden). Each time, I get a 400 error: Parameter is required: EmailDraftParam.
    The swagger documentation doesn't mention a "EmailDraftParam". What am I doing wrong?

  9. Add Group participation to the publicview API ContactsMe model

    I would find it really helpful to include "Group participation" in the ContactMe model of the publicview api (https://app.swaggerhub.com/apis-docs/WildApricot/wild-apricot_api_for_non_administrative_access/1.0.0#).

    For consistency, it could be located in the FieldValues collection. Given that /Sys/Profile shows the group participation to users, this addition seems like it would not introduce any new information for the client.

    My use case is that my 3rd party OAuth app would like to restrict access to content based on the WA group participation in a way that is consistent with the WA site page restrictions.

    Thanks!

  12. Stripe Connect

    Hi there,
    We understand that Wild Apricot by default allows adding only 1 Stripe/Paypal account in payment settings.
    However we are trying to customize. We want to use Stripe Connect i.e. our Stripe account will have 5 bank accounts added inside it.
    When a user selects 1 of the 5 "Donation Types" from dropdown in donation form, we want to direct the funds to that donation types bank account inside our Stripe account.

    We have a custom php code to achieve this. However how can we use that php code or any other customization you recommend to achieve this functionality…

  13. How to drive the saggerhub api

    Hi. It appears that I should be able to use swaggerhub to pull data from my WA database with the API, but I can't figure out how to do this because the code in the code window of swagger is 'read only'. I can see that I have to change it so that it points to my WA site, and although I have an option to enter API key to authenticate, there seems no way to change the site. Help appreciated

    I have to admit, authorization with login/password through swaggerhub stopped working. Authorization with API key (2-nd in a list) still works.

    I can recommend to use one of these options:
    1 POSTMAN – is a great tool to work with API. It is possible to import swagger description.

    2 Use our test tool at API browser. It is a web application located at https://api.wildapricot.org/ui/home/requestoauthtoken

  14. Best way to add featured images functionality to blog posts

    I need this basic requirement for the website, which has 2 components:

    1. Add an image select field in the Blog post -> Create new entry form

    2. Allow the image selected from #1 to be accessible in the Recent blog posts gadget

    I'm a developer - I do whatever custom work needs to be done, but I want to know is this even possible working within Wild Apricot's system? Is it possible with theme overrides? What would be the "correct" way of achieving this?

  15. Combine Reorder pages, Position in menu & Page template selections into a single admin window

    It is time to combine/merge the following site pages admin functions into a single admin window within the Website admin tab. Currently each website & system page has to be edited individually when moving the page into or out of the website menu system and when changing assigned page template. This can be time consuming when trying to move large volumes of pages in or out of the menu system or when changing templates. The Reorder pages function only allows the movement of page that are already in the menu system and doesn't account for any page not in the…

  17. Registering for pre-recorded video/Creating a video library

    We are filming the speakers at our events and want to make it available to members for later use. I an housing large videos on Google Drive, so no problems there.

    I want to know how many members are accessing the files, so naturally I am creating an event so they can register and then sending a link (to Google Drove) to users in the confirmation.

    1. How can I create an "evergreen" event with no expiration dates?
    2. Is is possible to create a "library page, where a registration process takes place before user gets the link?

    I'm not…

  19. Provide a working example using XML and Access 2016

    I am converting an existing (working) application based on the excel example provided by Wild Apricot to work with Access instead of Excel. All I need from the API is to download a list of members. I've found that the Excel code does not work with Access. I've found many workarounds on various VBA boards, but I'm stymied at the final step of actually downloading the XML for the membership roster.

    These three lines of code from the LoadContacts sub are the problem. The dim statement does not compile in Access. The error is that the 'user defined type is…

  20. IFrame Integration with WP

    So I am working on a client site that uses WA as their membership management system. Their site is actually located in WP and therefore I used iframes to integrate events, member directory, and so on. Problem is that I do not want a scroll bar and I do not want the iframe to get cut off at the height I set for it. I tried using height="auto" or Height="100%" but these shrink the iframe up and then it creates a scroll bar. Currently I have the iframe height set up high in pixels so it does not run out…
