Update from the Support Team 

This month, we are sharing answers to frequently asked support questions. 


I recorded a refund in WildApricot, but the money wasn't refunded. Why?

Recording a manual refund in WildApricot does not result in any money being returned to the payer. The transferring of funds associated with a manual refund must be initiated by you from within your payment processor. Then, you can manually record the refund in WildApricot.  


In short, you can't issue refunds to payments in WildApricot, only record refunds issued elsewhere. You can, however, issue a refund to a WildApricot account, but this does not result in the movement of any funds in any bank account. 

How do I customize the login icon?

With certain themes (Building Blocks, Kaleidoscope, and Tinted Tiles), the public login option appears as an icon of a person, without any text. When you click the icon, a login form appears. 



Using CSS code, you can change the color of the login icon, and change the login icon to a Login button. 


To apply CSS code to your WildApricot site, go to the Website module and click the CSS option at the top of the screen.  



On the screen that appears, enter the code in the Editor panel, then click Save to preview your customization within the preview area on the right. When you are finished making your changes, click Cancel to close the screen.
