I also agree it would be good to have that for the password as well.
I know how frustrating it can be to get video up onto the website. I have found what I think is an easy way. I was thinking about doing a traing video for the WA team so they could post it up for their members but dont know if they would aprove. Go to screencast.com sign up for a FREE account. you only need to upload your mp4 vidoe file to their site. They then generate the code for you and you just cut and paist to your webpage. They do have training videos on there too make it really easy. you do not need to know any html so don't worry.
I have really simplified it here if you need any more help please let me know

I understand your point I would tend to agree with you. Two ooptions build it in so that for admin people you could choose to have enhanced security active or not on an indvidual basis. Another work around is to have two (or more) member profiles so one could see the changes on another computer.
I think that your are looking at it from your administrator view which I can totally undersstand, because I also Like to check what I have done, a way round this is too set up two login accounts one to check and one to make changes.(Me looking from a non tech person)
Another way round this is that the function could be switched off for Admin Accounts. All I want to do is to protect my Intelectual Property.My outcome is too stop people signing up to my service and then giving their detail to friends so they don't have to pay for access to the site.
I would like to suggest security upgrade, at the moment the Wild Apricot software allows a member of a Wild Apricot website to login in with multi computers at the same time. This may not seem such a bad problem until you come across someone that pays for a single membership to a site and then passes his login details to his friends. The website whether a profit or non-profit is then losing revenue as there is no need for family or friends to also sign up for their own membership. It even gets worse if the user name and password is posted on a blog or other website. I know I am looking at the worst case here but I believe that security is always about preparing for the worst and then hoping it does not happen. Is there any way for a site owner to know if this is happening? (I am new to Wild Apricot)
My suggestion is that if someone logs in to his/her account and is already logged in on another computer then their account is suspended an email is then automatically generated and sent to the member (as well as the administrator) asking them to reset their password and inform them that there may have been a security breach or that they did not log out when they were on another computer. (Email generated could be edited by administrator and then decide who the email goes too) If this then continues too happen with a particular member then site administrators can decide what to do.
It could also have different levels so the first time it happens the member is asked to re-set their password the second time the account is suspended for 24 hours and then asked to reset their password. The third time their membership is suspended until an administrator re-activates it.
I am new to WA and would like to take the time to thank the WA Team for the help they have given me so far, so thank you for your help!!! You guys have a great system am loving what you can do with it, and the fact that you keep on developing the software.
Agree 100% same situation. A few clients will benefit of the power of WA but the rest need affiliate program so have to build site with other people would all be on WA if it offered an affiliate programe or an add on
This is what I took from their site. The link is:
I am not a web developer or designer so have no idea what it really means or is useful. I will make a few points.
1) I love the way feedback from clients drives development.
2) The drawback from this is when people are evaluating Wild Apricott (me) they comapre it to other products my point is several of your cometitors have affiliate programs built in. So you have lost them as clients. and they will never comment on these pages. Thus not many posts and affiliate program becomes a low priority.
3) Suggestion phone up the company JROX.com and do a deal with them they help integrate it into your system and you offer your client the chance to buy an add on and even have extras as they do to install it etc. This way people that want a affiliate program can and those that don't don't have too. You add extra revenue to your business and so does JROX.com everybody is a winner.
Here is the info from that link: (by the way there is loads of info on the site if you need any help please contact me I would be happy to help)
Installation of JAM can be completed in a few easy steps. This guide will show you how to install the software successfully on your server. * JAM is not supported when run on the Windows Operating System Database Creation - MySQL Database *JROX.COM Affiliate Manager requires access to a MySQL Database Server Before beginning the Installation, you must first login to your web hosting account or server and create a new MySQL database for this application. You may also use the PHPMyAdmin tool to create a new database via a simple web interface. Otherwise, please consult your server documentation on how to create one. You can also create the MySQL Database using the command line. If you have access to the command line, type in the following commands: 1. mysql - u username -p Change username to the username you use to access the database. You will now be asked for your database password. Type it in. 2. CREATE DATABASE jrox_affiliates; Change jrox_affiliates to the database name of your choice. You now have your database created. You may proceed with the installation. Make sure to have your database access details on hand before beginning the installation. JAM Installer (Windows-based Machines Only) 1. Select whether to download the Zend-Encoded or Ioncube-Version. We recommend using the Zend-Encoded version of JAM. 2. Run the jaminstaller.exe file located in the installer folder 3. Follow the onscreen instructions to begin the installation. 4. Enter your FTP details: FTP Address: ftp.yourdomain.com FTP Username: ftp_username FTP Password: ftp_password Installation Directory: the directory you want to run JAM from. Normally set to "affiliates". Install Folder: the folder you want to install JAM in. Normally, "/home/public_html" or "/home/www" Install Location URL: http://www.yourdomain.com 5. Click Next and Install and it will start uploading your files to your server. 6. Once you've finished uploading the files, click Finish. This will automatically open a browser window to the web-based portion of the setup. Just follow all the onscreen instructions to continue. 7. Once you are done, you will need to delete the install.php file before logging in. Manual FTP Upload 1. Open up the ftp_upload folder 2. You can either unzip the affiliates.zip file onto your machine, or upload it as is and unzip it on your web server 3. Using an FTP software, upload either the /affiliates folder or affiliates.zip onto your web site. (UPLOAD ALL FILES IN BINARY FORMAT) 4. Once all files are uploaded, if you uploaded the zip file, then you need to extract this onto your site. If you use cPanel, you can use the File Manager option in the control panel to extract this to your web directory. By doing this, it will create an /affiliates folder with all the JAM files in it. 5. Browse to the /affiliates/includes/config.php file and change the permissions for it to world-writeable or "777" 6. Browse to the /affiliates/banners folder and change the permissions for it to world-writeable or "777" 7. Run the web-based installer by going to http://www.YOURDOMAIN.COM/affiliates/install.php and follow the on-screen instructions. 8. Once the install has finished, you will need to delete the install.php file before logging in.
