We have an issue relevant to this conversation. I believe the dilemma everyone is discussing is an issue between using a current non-WA hosted site and the mesh between that site and Wild Apricot content.
So far widgets have enabled our website (which is not WA hosted) to display the WA I-Frames rather seemlessly. However the issues begin with member-only content. I think it would be ideal to create a really small widget (like 60px x 60px or something) that enables user's to activate their log-in; the caveat would be once they enter their email and password, the redirect would be to the homepage of the non-WA hosted site.
Obviously this would be a challenge to create because every organizations' redirect would be a different URL. However I don't understand why there couldn't be a login widget that enables members to enter their information, click "log in" and upon clicking WA activates their information as "logged in" and then auto redirects to the non-WA hosted homepage. It seems like the only challenge is that such a widget would be case-by-case where WA Clients would have to request this customized widget.
Hopefully the above helps to clarify the issue and unpack what people want. Layman's terms: "We want our member to be able to log in to WA utilities without leaving our homepage"
Thanks so much for listening,
