    I can’t find where the Waiver Jargon is in the settings. Is it somewhere else?

      Hi Vanessa,

      Apologies for the delayed response! Somehow I missed this question…

      Anyway, if you’re still needing to edit the waiver text, here’s how:

      Go to Dashboard >> ClassDex >> Settings

      On of the options is called “Waiver Text for Class Waivers”. Paste your text into that field and press save.

    For people who help around the campus my client pays them in artificial money or “Beaver Bucks” that can be used to partially or fully pay for a class. I would like to be able to set up some way of discounting classes by dollar amounts instead of percentages and be able to use more than one amount. Each Beaver Buck is worth $40 toward a class or event; students get a BB for each day of “volunteer” labor (the campus is being built by the students and community volunteer who work for the BBs instead of money). Can this be done inside ClassDex? I’m still building the site behind their old site. I’ve included their website in my details.

      Hi Debbie,

      ClassDex keeps track of “Class Credit” for each student. Each time a student pays for a class, this credit is deducted from the total until no credit is left. If students have “Beaver Bucks” they could turn them in to get added as class credit on their account. The staff person would need to manually increase this amount by finding the customer in ClassDex and editing their information.

        Thank you, that helps. I have another problem. I am trying to add students to the class database using the “Add new Student” but when I hit the “Add Student” after entering the information I get a failure message, I’ve tried twice now. Is there something in the settings, or do you know why this may be happening? Let me know if you need to access the site.

        Thank you,

        Hi Debbie,

        Are you updated to the most recent version of ClassDex? Unfortunately, it sounds like you might need to reinstall ClassDex. Could you send me a screenshot of the error?

        Thanks, John

    Yes, I updated before I tried to add the new student, it is version 1.2.4. I have taken a screen shot of the error message but I don’t see a way to attach or embed it on these comments. But here is a copy and paste of the error text on the page, which is completely white (no styling at all) with these words (WordPress is anchor linked to their site):

    Customer creation failed.

    Thank you for creating with WordPress.

    Version 4.1

    Let me know if I need to reinstall, but will I lose the data already created?


    • howtononprofit December 29, 2014 at 12:58 pm #

      Hmm I’ve not seen that issue before, so a reinstall may be best. Do you have lots of other plugins installed? May be a strange plugin conflict that I’ve not encountered…

      Before you reinstall, you can backup all of your existing data by using the Import/Export functions of the admin section of ClassDex:

    I was more concerned about the classes we have, will we lose that information? In order to reinstall, do I have to deactivate and delete the current one first? And will my MySQL keep the information and pick it up when I reinstall, similar to when I update some themes that require uninstalling the old version first? Or should I expect to have to reenter the class info again. We don’t have any students entered in yet.

    There are 14 plugin counting ClassDex and Cart66. They are Akismet, BackWPup, Columns, Fast Secure Contact Form, Jetpack, MetaSlider, PTA Member directory, QuickChat, Revision Control, Squelch Tabs & Accordions, The Events Calendar, and WPMembers.

      Hey Debbie, the export function allows you to export the classes as well. Since the Cart66 will remain intact, when you reinstall Cart66 and import the classes, the connections to Cart66 will work. Hope that does the trick!

  5. ddapson2013 December 31, 2014 at 10:18 am #

    OK, thanks, that makes sense. I’ll let you know how it goes.

  6. ddapson2013 December 31, 2014 at 3:01 pm #

    Well it won’t accept the csv file that I exported, it gives me a warning that the file “must be a csv” which it is. Guess I have to enter the info manually?

  7. ddapson2013 December 31, 2014 at 3:02 pm #

    Actually the classes are still there…I deleted ClassDex and reinstalled it. Let me see if the student list can be updated. I’ll let you know.

  8. ddapson2013 December 31, 2014 at 3:05 pm #

    Yes, it worked!! Thank you! Interesting that I didn’t lose the class information when I deleted the plugin, must have been stored on the database

    Have a Happy New Year!

      Great! Glad it worked out. =)
