EZ WildApricot Web Designer 2 is your answer to quickly editing your websites styles. More powerful than the built in website colors & styles editor, you can hide or even change text with a few clicks.

Installation is as easy as installing a Global Javascript, and all configuration files are saved to your site directly from the handy “Inspector”.

You can add translated content using a simple label called a “class”. Your visitors use a handy menu to switch languages.

As you add more content you can add translations on the fly!

If you wish to automatically translate WildApricot gadgets, get the translation support service, featuring French translations for over 600 standard WildApricot messages, labels and buttons.

Imagine the high level of customer service when you provide an experience in your member’s native language!

How does EZ WildApricot Web Designer 2 work?

It is sort of like magic…🧙‍♂️

But seriously, at NewPath we have spent years looking at the challenges WildApricot administrators face designing a beautiful and friendly website. The main challenges include

– changing the various styles and colours to reflect your organization’s font, logo colours and brand
– changing hard-coded text (e.g. changing Membership Level -> Subscription Tier or Bundle -> Group)
– hiding messages and buttons from visitors or members
– translating all website content and gadgets into 1 or more languages
– modifying all parts of the standard themes without needing to user theme overrides

To do this manually requires that you know Cascading Style Sheets and JavaScipt, but that is a steep learning curve. With EZ WildApricot Web Designer 2 you use one-click “Inspector” and click on what you wish to change or translate on your website. Then you can apply a variety of “functions” on the text, click save and preview your changes on the fly.

Successful installations can takes about 10 minutes. You simply subscribe to our app, download the app and upload it to your File Manager. Then you make a few changes in your Global Javascript and you’re ready to go.

EZ WildApricot Web Designer 2 requires:
– access to a WildApricot administrative account for a one time installation procedure
– a modern web browser (IE 11+, Edge, Safari, Chrome or Firefox)

If you want training and support for ready-made translations, please look into our Translation Support Service.

Do I have to have knowledge of CSS or Javascript to use this EZ WildApricot Web Designer 2?

It would not be called “EZ” if you had to have so much technical knowledge! Our first version did require the need to have a good idea of what CSS is, but with v2.0 there is no need for that since you just click and make changes in a web-based spreadsheet of all your changes. And saving your changes can be done with 1 click.

How do I add my own translations?

One of the main benefits of EZ WildApricot Web Designer 2 is adding translations to your website. When you install and activate multi-lingual mode, our app adds a dropdown with one or more languages. You can add your own translations for your content as well as any hard coded content.

Here’s an example multi-lingual WildApricot site in 5 languages powered by EZ WildApricot Web Designer 2 with our own custom translations.

Web page content can be translated on the same page simply by adding translated Content gadgets and adding a CSS class to each gadget. When the visitor switches languages all the translations pop into place without needing to maintain separate pages or page templates.

If you would like a ready-made translation file(s) in any other language, you can purchase our Translation Support Service.

Are there elements that cannot be translated or changed?

Currently the following elements cannot be changed with EZ WildApricot Web Designer 2 in the WildApricot website:

– The image upload button for a Picture field used in membership applications
– Any “Admin” website changes to the WildApricot administrative site

The following items will need to be maintained as changes are made in your website:

– When adding menus you may need to retranslate if you add or remove submenus under any previously translated menu
– When adding or removing fields on a membership profile, you may need to translate or add your changes again
– Membership directory text may need to use the delay function
