commented on Event radius defaults
Have you found a solution to this? We’d like to change these distance_radio_buttons too, with a wider default value…

commented on page.blog_post
I’ve found a liquid workaround for the missing previous/next variables which I’m making available to my clients. You can see the links at work on these blog posts:

commented on Customize email blast unsubscribe page
Our email targeting mainly depends on tags. I agree with Albert that a survey page could be a good method to set these preferences via tags.
However, one problem with this is that surveys can only add tags based on the chosen answer, but never remove an existing tag. So we’d need to go through all the answers manually and remove tags accordingly. The other problem is that surveys only allow one choice (radio buttons) rather than multiple answers (checkboxes).
If anyone has found a clever solution to this, please do get in touch…

commented on We would like to award social capital for opening an email. Thanks!
Not an urgent one to us but definitely an interesting suggestion. This would be tricky though if the capital was set to be shown on the front end though, and I as a user could see what I get awarded for… I could feel a little bit too supervised…?

commented on page_tag
Hey Ian or anyone else,

Do you know if there’s way of calling up expired pages (such as old events) with a certain tag?
None of the above lists seem to include them.
I know you can call up past events on a calendar page, but I’m after a mix of various page types that all have the tag, some published, some expired.

Thanks for thinking about this one…

commented on How I create multilingual websites
Thanks Martin and Ian! Is it easy to switch forms to RTL though and process the input correctly?
Have never done this. If anyone has, ideally a native speaker, please do get in touch.

commented on Autoresponses for New Volunteer Sign ups needs to get to them automatically
Good point if that’s the case. Can NationBuilder confirm the auto-response currently doesn’t get sent when “updates” has been unselected? Don’t have time for testing just now.

commented on Photos in the Headliner Theme
I don’t think that official response covers what you meant, Isabella. What you’re after is this:

In your custom theme.scss under //dividers, find the colour scheme your theme is based on, and replace the respective url(…) for $divider-background-2 with ‘null’, so the line will then say:

$divider-background-2: null;

(Please get in touch if you need further help with theme customisation.)

commented on Splash Page Trigger?
You can manually trigger splash page mode by adding ?splash=1 to any Nationbuilder URL. If you want your designated splash page, you’ll need that particular URL plus ?splash=1

commented on page
Is it possible that ‘descendants’ only picks up on basic pages and blog posts but not on directory or calendar pages?

commented on Advanced Search - provide a list of tags to exclude
Dominique, that’s basically what Kristofer was describing, isn’t it? Still think it could be more user-friendly, as he was suggesting.
(Same goes for searching for multiple tags with AND rather than OR.)
