    Even though it is not a direct implementation, I hope this could be helpful:

    We just launched integration with Integromat platform, which helps to build automated workflows. We also provide several templates for quick start, and one of them allows to copy google calendar events into WA events. So if you share a google calendar for events submission, then the scenario could copy submitted events into your Wild Apricot account.
    You can try this integration by this link https://www.integromat.com/en/integration/2275-copy-google-calendar-into-wild-apricot-events

    Thanks for your response. I think I might have asked that question wrong. What I would like to see is that there is an option for the public (non members) to submit events and comment on forums. As a Chamber of Commerce, we wanted the Chamber site to be a place where the community and businesses could post events and chat about things to do and community issues, since we are a major tourist town in Hawaii. Many come to our site to see what is going on not only in our town but island wide. There are many event sites out there but as a Chamber I think it is expected that we have and offer the capability of adding events and letting the public ask questions of our members who are all business owners in our community . The problem as I see it on your side and our side is that if they have to sign up to do so they are added to the database and then it grows meaning more cost to us. There would have to be some other area they could sign up on like just to have access to the forum (which is another wish I have, that the public can sign up and post questions to our forum without having to be in the membership database). I know it would be easier to allow the public to manage public events themselves and we just manage our chamber events. Is this something that is being considered? Regarding the forum, is there a way I am not seeing that people are using the existing system to allow the public to use the forum? I was thinking of making an option in our membership list that is FRIENDS OF THE CHAMBER and it would be free. Then they can post to the forum. However, we don't want our database growing too much, I suppose I could limit the membership and make people reapply every year. I also don't know if I can prevent these people from creating profiles and having them show in our directory since we only want our paying members in the directory. I have tried to look for examples of this on this forum but I am not seeing where someone has resolved this yet.

    When we signed up I spoke to your customer service who said that the option for the public to submit events was coming soon. I have been searching around here and don't see that. We would love to have the option for the public to submit events. Of course people would have to sign up to do this which I guess makes them a member so is that was this upgrade is? What we are envisioning is adding an ADD your EVENT button on the home page and it prompts you to register or log in to do so. Is that what this upgrade will offer?

    Thanks for all your hard work!

    yes I can see your point.

    This would be for those who have limited space, to have the option to give different login options. www.kailuachamber.com is a good example. It took away from the header to have a box there and with us adding more and more advertising to the side bar it got lost.

    Wanted to share what we did with the login box on this site. I like this better and am going to change the other site we did which I am finally getting around to the design on.

    Maybe this is something you guys can offer as an option in the future?

    (it is still in progress, so excuse grainy headers!)

    I really like the navigation on the craftworks. HEY, how did they get their blog summary to have images? I didn't know that was possible unless that isn't the gadget but something custom?

    Dani commented  · 

    OOOhhh I like that! I will have to go inspect the code and see how they did that.

    I also like the other one how they integrated a job posting. I wonder what they used, it looks nice.

    See this is useful to me. I think this will be really helpful for everyone. Although probably a pain the the butt for the apricot team as now you will get a billion question on how to do something!

    Although now I feel like mine isn't good enough! Ours isn't done yet but its getting there. It helps that there are lots of pretty pictures so I don't have to go overboard with the design. http://www.bosshawaii.onefireplace.org
