Changing CSS, text and translation with Wild Apricot Text Manager

The Wild Apricot Text Manager (WATM) is a Javascript library included with every Wild Apricot website that NewPath Consulting designs.

WATM can be used by any Wild Apricot administrator to manage and replace nearly every piece of system text in Wild Apricot. You can also use it to change CSS for any class or ID.

WATM can be used also to create a multi-lingual Wild Apricot website without the need to create duplicate pages, page templates or events. WATM currently supports a maximum of 2 languages. A list of replaceable elements is included in the easy-to-edit Excel configuration file. You can make a variety of changes such as global text search and replace, modifying system or custom form labels and buttons, changing CSS properties on any class or ID and hiding certain labels or buttons altogether.

The configuration for the Wild Apricot Text manager is made inside a comma separated configuration file which can be edited in Microsoft Excel or another text editor. To activate WATM, a few lines need to be added to Wild Apricot’s Global Javascript. You will also need to edit and upload the WATM configuration file which includes the text edits and translations. The full WATM package is added to your site using Wild Apricot’s website Files manager.
