commented on Displaying Map Below Events
I’m having same issue as Roy. Is there an editable file that handles the maps on calendar pages? Looking in the console, the script appears the same as the original _map.html, but I’ve made changes to that file that aren’t reflected. There must be a duplicate script in a different file that the global liquid object injects in the event calendar template, but I have no clue where this map file resides.

Is it possible to print the date a signup was added to the People DB? Also, what is the difference between request.current_signup and request.current_user?

@fredrik, I know I’ve come across this before, but do you know how to get tags with spaces to work? I can’t seem to get the handleize filter to work within the loop. My main reason for using page tags with spaces is so they appear properly if somebody clicks on a tag to view pages like it. The alternative is to just replace the dash in instances where a tag is printed to a page. It works fine, but I’m having a heck of a time figuring out why handelize doesn’t work in that context.

commented on How to I display custom field in public profile
Try this in your profile template instead: {{ profile.custom_values_for_display[‘INSERT CUSTOM FIELD SLUG HERE’] }}

If you are trying to display data on a public profile don’t use request.current_signup. That will grab the data from the record of the logged in visitor, not the record associated to that profile.

commented on Blog and Event Excerpts on Collective Stock Theme
This doesn’t actually work in the same way. The styling on the Collective theme demo is much different than what I am getting. The blog excerpts in the theme demo are in two columns with a stylized read more button. Adding the ‘homepage’ tag only inserts the content of that blog post at the bottom of the homepage in a linear fashion, one after the other.

commented on Do blog entries have a Excerpt field?
Strange. That should be {{ attachment.url }} as the img src.

commented on account
email_opt_in is not a valid form field for Account. This needs to be an available variable on Account page type for Canadian users.

If a non-member goes to the login page and inputs an email to start the account activation process they are automatically opting in to emails and offside of Canada’s anti-spam laws. The only way around this is to replace the create account portion of the login page to instead reference a subpage of the Join page type.

commented on Crowdfunding your nation with individual fundraising pages
How does one tie the progress bar on such pages to a specific time period or campaign?

The charity I’m volunteering for wants to have pledge pages like this multiple times a year associated to two major events they host. One event is in the winter and the other in the summer.

I can establish user profiles as discussed in the above post, that operate as pledge pages, and even limit functionality to allow only those that have purchased a ticket for the event. However, the progress bar is always tied to the amount they’ve raised since becoming a member, not since the specific fundraising campaign started. I know leaderboards have a time_range_name variable, but I can’t see any similar options for donations, except perhaps utilizing cycles in the election settings on my site and outputting via donations_amount_this_cycle_format (even though I’m not using it for politics).

I’ve been able to show an dollar amount raised for the current “cycle”, but I can’t utilize that data in a progress bar.
