commented on Save roles on a Volunteer Signup page with a dropdown list
We at NationBuilder have not tried to change the UI from checkbox to a drop-down list for volunteer roles.

In the interest of allowing people to offer all of their skills to your cause, we don’t think it is wise to limit a supporter to choosing one way of volunteering. For example, you can see how automated volunteer signup helped streamline Pivot Legal’s operations:

Tim, can you clarify what you’re asking? The excerpt field exists for every page on your website, including blog posts. You can find it in Settings > Social media

commented on Are there plans to integrate NationBuilder with Drupal?
Marty – just to clarify, you are able to create a visual calendar in a NationBuilder website using Liquid functionality. You are correct that it isn’t the standard format for displaying events in a NationBuilder site. You can also add your voice to this feature suggestion: Note that in the comments, there is a link to a NationBuilder Architect who is offering the feature, as well as information on our calendar API and events API.

commented on Recording donations not made through web site?
Melanie, thank you for pointing out this bug on inputting financial information. You can definitely track donations without running them through That drop-down is simply showing in error and will not be connected to recording the transaction. I will work with our engineering team to update this.

commented on Editing petition form fields
Adam, address information resides in the same field to encourage people to give as much information as they’re comfortable with. It isn’t possible to separate the field, but customers have found that incomplete contact information is better than no contact info. A one-to-one call from a volunteer or staff member of your organization to complete the address info can be a good opportunity for a secondary ask.

commented on How do I delete a single person from my nation?
Mark, as you have noticed, we are not as quick to respond to comments left on our website as people expect. There are a couple of reasons you wouldn’t have the ability to delete a person and I’m going to update the answer to reflect those limitations.

Emailing your point person or is the fastest way to receive customer support.

commented on Background images in Aware Theme
The featured content slider is as wide and as tall as your widest and tallest image. We recommend uploading images that are the same width and height. More info is here:

In the Aware theme, the content sliders are designed to span the breadth of the site. You can create a clone of the theme and adjust this in the theme.scss file. More information on working with themes is available at

commented on Where are the flash.message text strings stored?
That text lives in Settings > Social Media of the vote pledge page. You might also need to update your election settings. Go to Settings > Political > Settings and update the candidate’s name.
