This is very impressive, thanks for sharing! I spent at least 15 minutes just navigating through your site and enjoying the experience. A lot details are well done, very good job. And no "heavy artillery" used like Theme overrides or CSS customization, just new version 5 CMS capabilities and a new theme. Thumbs up!
Hi Frank! Nice to see you here writing this kind of post. Good luck to you with it - I agree that Wild Apricot has great tools for design and we need to share our experience about it. Keep it going!
I cannot see how I can help you here in this thread. We need to look into your site.
Could you please write to firstname.lastname@example.org with a reference to this thread and give your account number also in the email? In this case we can check everything directly on your site and help to resolve the problem.
I just checked again with developers about files loading order - files in "Scripts" folder are loaded in alphabetical order. So you can also rename files as a workaround instead of using Meta-tags page
Use “Meta-tags (for search engines)” page, RAW Headers. You can add tags to include script libraries there in required order.
And I just checked with our developers: jQuery v1.5.1 is already used internally so no need in connecting it.
There is no special support for specific JS libraries and there is also no need in that - basically you just add links into external libraries (jQuery, etc.) so they are available on a page HMTL code, then you inject js code calls to the libraries into corresponding parts of page (menu in your case) to actually use the libraries abilities.
This is just a standard approach for any JS development. Look like you just used the library in incorrect way. You need to figure it our yourself - reading library help documents and how to use it.
You can do it using http://help.wildapricot.com/display/DOC/Theme+Overrides and changing code in corresponding template file.
