WCM - Browser Compatibility issues


We use iMIS and we are developing a website and encountered few browser compatibility issues. Some links works in IE but not in other browsers (FF, Chrome, Safari).

We are using 1502 template and the homepage content area6, 7, 8, 9, 10 are 5 different images that contain links respectively. All the links work correspondingly in IE but not in other browsers. Interestingly, only homepage content area6 works in the other browsers but not the other 4 links.

Page-to-page communication

I have two pages, both with iParts, which need to communicate with each other.  Some of the details I want to communicate are a bit sensitive.  It's not credit cards or other personal info, but it could potentially be used to manipulate the system to gain access to records that shouldn't be seen by the current user.

I know the first page can pass parameters to the second page using the URL, but the security is non-existent.  Even my mother-in-law can manipulate URL params.

Using OAuth with iMIS - Logon with Facebook or twitter

I have been asked by an AE whether it would be possible for us to create a custom login page for iMIS that allowed users to login to iMIS using either their Facebook, google or twitter credentials, 

All these apps now use OAuth 2 - which I have been reading about here  and here

WCM 1700 Template Sidebar question

I am testing a new site using the WCM 1700 template.  The layout has a SideBarPanel defined out of the box, but I can't get the sidebar to show up.  Is there a trick to getting the Sidebar for secondary navigation to show up?

Placing page into wcm

Hello All,

I'm new to iMIS as well as the iMIS community so don't frown upon me toooooo much. With that being said, I'm trying to figure out how to place a aspx page I created (VS10) into/onto the WCM so that I may maintain the style (look and feel) and formatting of the website. I thought about a custom ipart, or someother means, but this is a pretty BASIC task, so I figured I might be overlooking something simple. I've already placed the url for my aspx in the wcm sitemap thinking that would pass down the formatting but no go.......

Annual billing and handling prorating???



I am currently facing an issue an issue with billing, iMIS is setup for annual billing with special prorating, (i.e: 100% for 1-8 month then 9-10 at 75% and 11-12 at 100% with bumping to next year).

following is the piece of code I am having issues with:


DateTime startOfYear = new DateTime(DateTime.Now.Year,1,1);


Customizing a history tab

Hi there,

For a given activity type, say GIFT, I have selected to have a history tab for this activity. Is there any control over which fields are displayed on the history tab? (e.g. GIFT description appears on Activity All but not Gift History)

The only option I can think of is creating a custom tab that has SQL queries as calculated fields to pull data from the Activity table.

Perpetual installments

Hi there,

When entering a pledge as an installment in the Funraising module, you're required to specify the payment frequency and # of years. Is there a way to make the installment perpetual / indefinite? Unfortunately the # of years field is mandatory on the gift entry form so I'm wondering if there's a configuration option somewhere.

iMIS member login redirect

New here and new to iMIS, but not dev or .net.

Anyhow, I am working on a clients site whereas a user would go to their site (in this case, it is still beta = and if a member, should click on the "member login" in the upper right corner of the site. Once the login info is entered and validated, it should then take the member to the "members only" page (in this case: ). What is happening though is that after a member logs in, it just redirects the member back to the home page, the
