Yes. That would be helpful. What I like to do is publish who is attending an event but with the formatting of a directory. I do not like the formatting that is built in to the event pages to post who is attending. I have found a work around where I put in the notes section of members attending the event a word that I can then attach a saved search to....it is a very manual process but I then can have the look I want for the directory.
My members in WA are not individual members they are "teams". So when a team registers to be part of something like a design showcase, I want our judges to be able to review the team's profile in advance. So this is why I like to create a directory of the participating teams.
Your solution you stated in your response would fix this issue for me.
You can't send an event announcement to a saved search, or I would have done that already. I suppose I can try it with a manual email and just cut and paste the event announcement text and then fill in the blank for the macro fields, since those won't be filled in automatically. I am will look into it.
In the Events options...if you want to email an announcement...There is no option to choose specific groups or saved searches. I need to send the announcement to a specific member level. I know I can just do this using the Email members option, but I don't want to send the email to members that may already be registered for the event. And using the logic above, there is no way to choose "Not Registered for specific event(s)" to create a saved search group.
Changing the registration level to choose only members of this group is not an option, since we allow our members to forward the invitation to their colleagues to register as well, so we have to keep the registration "public".
Any work around options??
I created a work around, that works for things that I post under the admin login. I created a membership level for the admin account. Changed the first name and last name of the admin account to reflect the name of my organization. So now when I post things under "News and Announcements" forum, it does not come up as "Anonymous" but now shows up as posted by my organization's name. May not work for all profiles, but it did for my admin one!
Any change with this?
Being able to have custom profiles or profile layout choices is so important to us. I was able to sell the idea of WA to my bosses, but this is the one major feature that they didn't like.
Is it possible to develop a few profile layout templates we can choose from??
Thanks for the quick response. One last thing...what if I used the event registration form instead of a donation form? Could I customize that event confirmation page? If not...could I link the registration amount to the donation widget progress bar somehow?
Thanks. Last post, I promise :D
Or will the confirmation page ID be the same for each confirmation? Maybe I can customize the metadata for that particular page ID?
Is there anyone one at WA that can do this for me for a fee? I am desperate. I feel like I mislead my team :(
For example...we would like to add some social media links/graphics to get our donors to share (using sharethis) that the made a donation with their fb/twitter friends/followers....so that it may spread the word to potential donors. Sort of a way to do crowdfunding using WA tools. If there is not way for me to do it, is there a way for me to pay someone at WA to put the code in the confirmation page for me? I did a hard sale to my bosses to use WA for this....but I may have jumped the gun if we can't use a customizable confirmation page :( I know I can incorporate this a bit into the confirmation email, but it truly isn't the same.
Is this available now? I will have some very unhappy bosses if I am not able customize the confirmation page. We REALLY need to include social media links to this!
Can you tell me where in the HTML haystack that you found the "Member Profile Details" divider. I have been trying to change this for months! :D thanks so much, Amy
Thanks. Should I wait until I am converted to 5.0.to request? I am scheduled for this Saturday.
Thanks so much for the quick response!
Which theme did you start out with? I know WA themes are not responsive...but I am curious what was your starting point. I may be interested in discussing pricing on doing something similar with my site after I get converted to 5.0.
We were able to change the template enough to match the templates used by the whole university: http://oedk.rice.edu
I am working on learning more CSS options to challenge the site even further!
Instead of "members" we have used the profile pages to highlight our engineering design projects.
So far so good. Customizable profile pages would be ideal...looking forward to some upgrades!
