commented on Birthday field in signup form?
Whoops, forgot to wrap my code! Let’s try that again:

I’ve noticed that putting the liquid representation doesn’t always work. Instead, I spell out the HTML verbatim and that does the trick:

<pre>Birth date


From my experience though, this only works on the signup pages and the signups_edit partial.

There needs to be a variable for rsvp count PLUS guest count. It doesn’t make sense to have to get the rsvp count, then use Liquid to add the guest count going through the rsvp array one by one. Liquid doesn’t do math nicely.

Also, I assume pagination eventually comes into play, so you can actually count past a certain point in the RSVPs….

is_private does not work with a ? at the end of it. It should just be:

commented on Can I slow down the speed of the featured slides?
Doesn’t look like this was fully answered, so here’s what I did:

I disabled NationBuilder’s initialization of flexslider by changing the _features.html classes and ids of “page-features” and “feature-slides” to custom ones (don’t forget to change them in the scss files as well!). Then, I inputted my own init custom script with the help of the options: $(window).load(function() { $(‘#flex-feature-slides’).flexslider({ animation: “fade”, slideshowSpeed: 7000, animationSpeed: 600, prevText: "", nextText: "", start: function() { $(‘.slider-loading’).remove(); $(‘.flex-slides .slides’).css({"visibility": "visible"}); } }); });

The jquery in the “start” function is there to remove the loading gif and make all the slides visible when flexslider has fully initialized.

Are all the variables that have link-throughs in the left-hand column supposed to go to the “page_variables” documentation? Broadcaster should go to “broadcaster” but it doesn’t, not sure about the other ones. Might want to fix those hyperlinks :)

Which image Andrew?

If it’s a page attachment, you can grab it using the Page Attachment API:

If it’s the meta image, then no :(

commented on How can I easily share a personalized recruiter link with all of my supporters?
Tedford Archer asked this question a few months ago, but it looks like it was replied to privately. If the answer to his question could be supplied publicly, that would be really helpful to the rest of us.

To repeat the question verbatim:

I have included{{ }} as suggested in a couple of email blast tests and never see the ID displayed, the URL always ends without the ID present. Has the functionality changed as described above?

rsvps is not actually the number of rsvps, but rather an array of rsvp objects.
