Can the event calendar IPART be given maximum height?



Is it possible to set a fix height on the Events Calendar iPART based on the Telerik Sceduler Control?


We have it running in responsive on page.


4 x 4 x 4


In the right hand clolumn. While this resizes well we find the that the height remains stretched we only want the calendar to show at 400px high maximum.

Shop and News pages from Quick Start Sites - Why don't they function like you would expect?

We are currently building a site on iMIS 20 and I've been very disappointed in what ASI advertises as "Quick Start Sites". The previous employee in my role purchased iMIS and had expected to use the templates site with minimal customization. Since I have been hired on the project, it's clear to me that really isn't possible. I am not a web-developer, I'm a web designer with a pretty good knowledge of html and css, but customizing this seems way over my head.

Styling Out-of-the-box Themes

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.


Is there a way to speed up the animations on the megamenu dropdown? The speed is entirely too slow and and not good for UX. I myself am constantly clicking a link even though I know there's a dropdown.

Also, does anyone know what version of Telerik Tools iMIS is using? And lastly is there any chance of the tools getting upgraded soon to use something like the RadNavigation vs the RadMenu?

Switching from Cash to Accrual Accounting

I need to switch my database from cash to accrual accounting. Our dues are on the calendar year, not anniversary. Should I wait until the end of the year to make the change or can I do it now? Thanks in advance!

iBEF Conference, Austin, June 11, 2014

Nathan and Jane brought their "traveling show" to Austin.

The customers who attended included:

  • Tx Assoc School Business Officials (
  • TX Trucking Assoc (
  • Delta Kappa Gamma Society (
  • Tx Retired Teachers Assoc (

And we had two people from a prospective customer who are looking at a couple of systems: Texas Center for the Judiciary (

The customers were very happy with iMIS20 and with how easy it is to upgrade now, so that was great for the prospects to hear. 

CSS for content types within the iMIS framework

So I have a nifty little iPart that does stuff, and when I test it through a RiSE site or even the old web view I am able to get CSS styles that do things like change the background color for every even row, for example:

#search-wrapper tr:nth-child(even) {
background: #CCC

I'm using asp:GridView and asp:BoundField to generate the output. However, when I run the same iPart within the iMIS client, a lot of the CSS styles don't work properly. Mostly the newer ones (like nth-child()). Should I assume I can't use the more advanced CSS options for custom content types running within the iMIS desktop client?

Communities Module - Unimpressed

We recently purchased the Communities Module for iMIS with the idea of being able to give our clients a wide variety of social communication options but so far we have not been able to roll it out to a single client due to it's shortcomings. I just wanted to put this topic up here for discussion and to potentially see if anyone has developed any useable functionality from the module and could share tips.

On Behalf Of

How does the "On Behalf Of" feature work? Is there documentation that fully explains it? I need to know how it works for members and staff.


WCM/RiSE page load times

I've submitted this as an SMR through TS, but I figured I'd get others' input as well. We do have a series of clients on 15.2.x running WCM/RiSE and almost all of them have complained about page load times. Some more loudly than others.

A particular site is continually taking 8-16 seconds to load pages (while they claim it takes upwards of 30 seconds to log in). Another client is taking up to 12 seconds to load pages - other sites running WCM/RiSE are taking 5 seconds to load a page. screenshots from 3 different clients:
