    Yes.

    Also subscriptions should be included in the (oddly labeled) Add contact list button on the Compose email screen. Currently it only brings up saved searches.

    Oops. I didn't understand that subscription lists can't be emailed directly, only through a saved search. That's counter-intuitive.

    So revise this suggestion to name that button "Add saved search."

    And a second, slightly harder suggestion: This button now brings up a list of saved searches. That list should also include subscriptions. The purpose of a subscription is to email to it. So why not just let us do that, without creating a saved search to duplicate the subscription?

    I was able to solve this using Theme Overrides. In my theme (Skyline), file Gadgets/Login.LoginForm/RememberMe.tpl, I replaced <$Model.Text.LabelRemember$> with the desired text.

    I used "Remain logged in <i>(recommended on your own computer)</i>".

    (Disclaimer: I don't always know what I'm doing. But it worked.)

    As I plod through editing 50 events, I am wishing for two little tiny features:

    1) Prev and Next links in the event display, as you now provide in viewing a member or contact.

    2) Back returns to the same spot in the Event list, not the top (already requested below).

    Back does preserve the search string now. This makes it easier to deal with a limited number of events that can be gathered with a search.

    I think the general wish is for more convenience in displaying and navigating the event list. Here are some additional ideas:

    1. Have links to 12 months across the top: "Jan Feb Mar .... Nov Dec." Clicking a month goes down the list to the last event in that month. So if it's August 2015, then clicking Aug through Dec would position the list at the last event in that month in 2015. Jan through July would go to 2016.

    And add a 13th link to "Next Event."

    This might be convenient enough to serve as an alternative to sorting.

    2. Select the event tag(s) to display, so the admin can work with just one type of event.

    3. When clicking "Back" from editing an event, position the Event list at that event, not at the top. A small thing but very convenient when working with several events. Any chance of slipping this one in soon?

    Can be done using Theme overrides functionality – by fixing HTML code in the gadget templates. But I’ll be collecting comments to see if suggested user-friendly functionality needed by others.

    Bob, I do this by putting a link "More ..." right under the Upcoming events gadget. The link points to our events calendar page, but it could also point to a page with a longer Upcoming events gadget.

    This is not as snazzy as having the upcoming events list expand in place but it does provide the "More" functionality, and past events on the events calendar.

    Can you provide an example for this Theme override in the Help for this gadget?

    Could this method be used to display the first few lines of the event description in this gadget?

    Oh, good point. The one event I set up like this, I used an Extra Charge Calculation in the reg form for each component: Number of adults, Number of children, Number of tots under 2, etc. Since each field is a number, I could have set up formulas in Excel to compute the separate charges. If I'm understanding, you'd want a column for each type of charge?

    If you use the multiple extra charge Registration form fields, I guess the formulas could still be done but the logic in the formulas might have to do a text comparison.

    And then of course each time you pull a new copy of the list, you'd have to copy and paste the formula columns from a previous spreadsheet.

    Does that help?

    (Warning: I've been doing WA for a whole six months now, so I know just enough to get into trouble. Hopefully not get you into trouble too.) :)

    Oh, and maybe an option to save the selections in "Export registrants" so they didn't have to be checked off again to rerun the report. The saved selection should be applicable to other events to the extent the registration form field names are the same.

    BTW we have used the API to generate an HTML page listing all the registrants and form fields for an event, given the event number. So an organizer and/or member can display all the registration information for an event by clicking a link.

    How about adding an option to "Export registrants" to export the selected fields as a PDF or Word file in addition to Excel format?

    And a checkbox for two little optional additions to the export in all formats. At the bottom, a total for each column with numeric values. And at the right, a column that totals all the dollar values on that line.

    Hope, you could probably do what you want now with the Excel registrant export, if you are comfortable with Excel and can put in the totals yourself. What do you think?

    Event copying doesn't copy the registration types and settings now?

    If we could specify a beginning and ending date for a blog post, the post could be saved as a draft by entering a (far) future beginning date.

    Specifying dates is one of the enhancements I suggested in this thread: http://forums.wildapricot.com/forums/308932-wishlist/suggestions/9019906-blog-enhancements

    You can determine the posting order by editing the blog posts and changing the dates.

    But could we please have the ability to choose whether or not the date and/or the poster's name are displayed? Blog gadgets make a great announcement and news tool, but if all the posts come from "management" then the name is just a distraction and uses space.

    Updated title to reflect that it’s not just about levels copying – which is about adding new levels, but also about copying of (some) settings from one level to some or all others

    Or for those who don't have your admin password: http://forums.wildapricot.com/forums/308932-wishlist/suggestions/8826730-customize-all-emails-sent-from-wa-using-centralize :)

    For emails, that's fine. But there are so many other settings for a membership level, and it's a problem not only when they are created but when changes are made.

    We have 8 levels. (Some sites have more.) I set them all up and have turned them over to my Membership Committee to decide what the settings should be. So they will have to make all those changes 8 times.

    Walt Bilofsky commented  · 

    What about the broader problem of making a change to some or all existing membership levels? For example, if we wanted to change the wording of a renewal email, or a reminder date, now we have to edit each level individually.

    Suppose we could designate some or all settings on an existing membership level, and then copy those settings to some or all other membership levels. That would solve this broader problem. It could also be used to populate settings for new levels.

    +1 for Copy button!

    I am just setting up our site. We have five membership levels; the only difference is the dues amount. Very tedious to copy every detail four times and try to be sure it is all correct. This should be done by WA, not the admin.

    The URL is https://tiburonyachtclub.wildapricot.org/Membership-Application . The content is in a separate content gadget.

    The bundle member can see the content. The maxed-out bundle admin doesn't see any content on the page, no matter where it's placed. This appears to be a bug.

    But even if it's fixed, this does not meet the other three issues.

    1. What if a member wants to show a friend the membership application?

    2. There is considerable information about membership levels in the membership application. A member should be able to view that information without needing to have it entered on a separate page.

    3. A page shouldn't look differently depending on whether someone is a member, a non-member or a bundle admin, unless the content is restricted to members only. (In this case it's restricted to non-members only, which seems strange.)

    Great idea!

    This made me think that perhaps it could be implemented as part of a more general macro facility.

    I have a different application for this. I'd like our Why Join tab to be on the top menu for public visitors, but a submenu item for members.

    How about a site page option for the page to be visible only to public but not to members? Then there could be two (possibly duplicate) Why Join pages, one for public only and one for members only, at different places in the menu structure?

    This requires the admin (or their consultant) to do a workaround, but it should be easier to implement than multiple menu structures.
