David and Tom: the API allows you to delete donation records, see: http://apiexplorer.nationbuilder.com/nationbuilder#Donations

If you need help deleting donations added via import, please contact your organizer. We are happy to help ensure the quality of your data.

commented on About the content_for_notifications.
Having the {{content_for_notifications}} tag in _columns_2.html and _columns_1.html allows different notifications to appear, it doesn’t specify that a single notification will appear on every page.

You can’t update notifications except on a signup page. For sign up pages, you can edit it under signup settings. If there is a particular notification you want to change, you might be able to use a liquid “replace” filter: http://nationbuilder.com/liquid_basics#filter

commented on "Visible to Search Engines" Option for All Pages
Gordon, for development purposes – if you leave a page in draft mode that is visible to the public, it wont be crawled by search engines. You can then give people the URL for the page so they can review the content. I’ve done this when creating pages on the NationBuilder website.

commented on Is there an easier way to edit the theme?
Luana, the standard color variations for our public themes can be viewed in our theme gallery: http://nationbuilder.com/theme_gallery

You can switch between them in your own website as Patty described.

commented on Surveys and survey pages
Brad, you’ve uncovered a quirk in the system that we will be fixing. You’re correct that it’s not currently possible to delete a survey, but the functionality will be added.

commented on Theme documentation
Reggie – the “double font” issue is caused by a line in theme.scss for text-shadow that affects the body tag:

text-shadow: #fff 0 1px;

Deleting this line will render the font without a white “shadow” and keep it flat black.

commented on How to send and view one-to-one email
David, if you’re using NationBuilder as your email provider, we do not provide IMAP connection. Because of the way mail is processed, it is not possible to view the source of an email. You may prefer to use another email provider and integrate with NationBuilder Mailboxes to keep copies of your correspondence in your people database and allow your control panel users to email people one-to-one directly from your control panel.

You may also want to weigh in on this feature suggestion: http://nationbuilder.com/telavelle/nationbuilder_email_spam_filter or suggest another type of feature.

commented on Storify
Glad you were able to get it to work! The way Storify displays outside their website is set by Embedly & Storify.
