Oh toto, I don't think I'm in Kansas anymore

It's an education, right? 


commented on How long should it take changes made in Dropbox to show up live on the site?
Oh. I see now. It’s actually a two stage process. You still have to go to the theme admin page and ‘publish the changes’. I have to say that’s a bit underwhelming. A bit excessive on the caution front. I mean if you make a mistake or whatever, Dropbox will let you revert and most likely the text editor you’re using has an undo button.

Nice idea NationBuilder but the implementation I think needs a review.

commented on How do I insert people custom field values into a directory page listing?
Never mind. I figured it out. It’s {{ signup.custom_values_for_display[‘network_name’] }}

You’d make a lot of friends in Canada. And you might need them. A couch to crash on when things go pear-shaped down there.

Support Type: Other

Issue: I’m looking for clarification on how NationBuilder ‘supporters’ contribute to attaining a ‘supporter’ goal

I have set up a goal for ‘Number of supporters’ in my Nation — we’re trying to get to 300. Last night I brought in a list of new leads, including 370 new names and suddenly this morning we’ve reached our goal and then some.

I think NationBuilder and I have different ideas about what constitutes a supporter.

The confusion might stem from the fact that NB uses two fields to indicate supporter status — the ‘supporter/prospect toggle’ and the support level field.

Which criterion is the Goal function using?
Nation slug: joelhardenorg

commented on Burst pipe when logging into ThemeSync
I think it’s related to being un-authenticated somehow. I had been logging in to my ‘nation’ via twitter because the web app didn’t like my password. I reset my password and re-entered it in the Mac application and I was able to get access to the templates using the app. I think what you need to do is just provide a more meaningul error message.

Well that’s good intel, if not good news. It seems needlessly strict. I would expect most people have more to say about themselves than one and a quarter tweets.

I do appreciate the reply however.

It seems completely crackers to me that you cannot get an email when someone sends you an email.
