RiSE Website with background video playing

Running iMIS 20.2.26.3109

I am redesigning my website in RiSE and my graphics designer would like to add a background video to the homepage only. Has anyone done this in RiSE and would be willing to give me some pointers? Not sure how to do this if it is even possible.

The video needs to run with no sound and be the width of the site. The site is in a responsive Template - London_Responsive. I would like this to eat up the top part of the page and then if the homepage goes further than the video does on the height, place a simple background image there. All the rest of the pages should be without the video.

Styling Out-of-the-box Themes

Hi,
I'm very new to iMIS and I'm really struggling with getting the hang of it. I have experience with wordpress and drupal, but the knowledge really doesn't translate at all. I'm building a site using the Austin Responsive theme and I'm having the hardest time styling the navigation and functions of the site (ex. shop functions, member profile etc.). From what I can see, it's pretty much anything that is a Telerik control that doesn't seem to want to take css.

Gated content on RiSE

Hi all,

I've got a general query about content on RiSE: Is there a way to gate content on RiSE?

What we would like to do is record simple details (First name, Last name, Email address) of people who download a particular PDF file (this would include authenticated users and non-authenticated users) from the website.

I'm hoping there is a simple way or a plug-in for iMIS we can use? Otherwise, would the following be a viable solution:

How to escape the & character in Events module

When trying to enter the ampersand (&) character in the second line of the Address field in the event setup area of the iMIS staff website, iMIS is converting the ampersand to &amp.  For example, "Grandover Resort & Conference Center" once saved displays as "Grandover Resort & Conference Center."  The key seems to be that you have to escape the & character.  I have tried the following:

Looking for good examples using foreach command

Does anyone have some good examples of the foreach command being used in Communication templates?  The only out-of-the-box template that appears to be available in iMIS is the Event Confirmation.  I have followed the logic of this template in trying to build another one, yet keep coming up short.  The out-of-the-box template lists all of the functions within the registration, but only the functions of the registrant listed in the email.  Makes sense.  Joe Smith only wants to see his own functions, not someone else's functions and not eveyone else's function.  Following what appears to be a similar line of logic, I’m trying to build a different kind of template, one that lists all of the company admins of a company member.  This feature of the tool is proving to be particulary quirky.  If I include the Default query under the Additional Data Sources area, the template finds no one, even though the Recipient query finds about 900 individuals.  The recipient query also includes the NetContact.ID field, which is what you must have in order to feed it to the Default query's NetContact.ID filter.  If I take out the Default query and just use my query with repeating rows, giving it a Filter of NetContact.ID, the query sorta works, except that instead of listing out each company's admins, all admins (regardless of company) appear on all 900 messages.   What's weird is that I took this approach earlier today and the admins appearing on each company's email message belonged only to the company being previewed, only they were being listed twice.  Therefore I was tryingt to eliminate the duplicates.  Now we're back to seeing all admins on all companies being previewed, in spite of not being able to identify any differences between the queries before and after.  To say this exercise is frustrating would be an understatement. 

An attempt to build the sitemap failed Persistent Errors

I've been getting persistent errors on our webserver for many months that I cannot resolve. I've checked for orphans (none), I've checked for navigation items pointing to the sitemap.aspx which I don't see. It happens in our dev environment and our prod environment, preupgrade, post upgrade. We upgraded to 2015Q4 from 20.1.1.4.

I'm ready to delete all my sites on my dev environment but it also appears to generate an error when I am only accessing the default staff site. I see the errors generating over the weekend even when no one is logged on to our site so I can't narrow down to any particular area of our site. This is happening every two or three minutes so it's clogging my error log. It doesn't seem to be causing any issues with access on our site as far as I can tell but I really want to get this resolved since it's preventing me from finding other errors when I have other issues develop.

Populating profile photos

Our client has uploaded the profile photos into member records using either PV or the iMIS Desktop, so there are values in the Name_Picture table for a myriad of their records - or should I say copious amounts of records. It's a significant number of records.

However, we're currently working in RiSE and the images do not exist on the server in the images/Profile folder. We've got an IQA query that is pulling the information and the images are not loading because while the information is in the Name_Picture table, the actual image does not reside on the server.

Member only access webpage message

Good day,

Our website has quite a bit of content that is only available to members. When a non-member clicks on member only material they are redirected to the log in page, but after logging in (for non-members) they are then redirected to the lovely unexpected IMIS error page. I looked at the configuration in Rise of the content and the properties on the content designer page are display within the template, content is restricted to members and content requires user to log in.

SAML Single Sign-On (SSO) Integration

I have a client asking for assistance with integrating their iMIS website with third-party services through SAML 2.0. Before I hand them an expensive estimate for building a solution from scratch, I thought I'd check around here and see if anyone has done something with SAML and iMIS.

Feel free to leave any pointers on how you might approach the problem, too!

Spanning content over two columns

I am trying to format a field in an iPart so it spans two columns. No matter how I configure it (separate iPart, single column iPart), it defaults to a narrow area. For long fields like the company profile, it looks very odd and is not user friendly. Does anyone have a suggestion or workaround in RiSE to accomplish this?
