  1. Address Collection Allowed on Site along with RSVP

    Is it possible to have the address collection feature prompt guests who RSVP to enter their pertinent details for mailing of physical invitations?

    We would like to use the site as a "save the date" as well as for logistical data. It would be great to allow the function of collecting their data we need without having to send out the link/landing page for the "address collection" to individuals.

    Is this already possible and perhaps I'm overlooking a step or a feature not available at this moment?

    many thanks in advance

    • iPad optimised

      It is a nightmare trying to design and manage my site on my iPad. I have to power up my laptop which takes forever. Are there any plans to make the site mobile friendly?

        Hi and thanks for getting in touch! We do have plans to optimize for tablet but not in the too near future.

        We are currently focused on improving the desktop and phone experiences.

        Thanks for your patience!

      • It's weird that registry partners automatically give The Knot registry information

        I get that it might be convenient for Knot users to have their registries automatically added to The Knot, but it would be really nice if it's something where you very visibly opt-in, rather than having it be a default. It feels invasive and, frankly, a bit creepy.

          We really thank you for taking the time to send this over. All of our registry partners put this information in a different place to let members know they are going to publicly share your information with The Knot. We are working with each partner to make sure this is clear moving forward. We are also looking at how we can make this more private even when it is shared with us so you, as the member, can opt in when you choose.

          We hope to see changes in this field later this summer.

          XO,

        • Move sub-sections Around

          Can you please make it so we can move sections around to different website pages (tabs). For example, I would like to move the 'Our Story' and 'Wedding Party' to another website page and only have the 'Ceremony & Reception' and 'Other Events' under website page 'Our Wedding'

            This is a common request and our team is working on making improvements every month that may include this ability some day. We want the free websites to be just what you need and really appreciate your patience and feedback here.

            We trust you have found a way to make the site work for you in the meantime. Enjoy!

          • Arrange photos in photo albums

            I would love to be able to rearrange the photos in a photo album.
            When I try to add them in a specific order, they automatically rearrange in a random order, or appear to be organized by orientation (landscape or portrait). It completely mixes up the order I uploaded them in, and I even changed the photo names so that they are in alphabetical order, hoping that would help! But it didn't :(
            Please add the ability to rearrange photos in an album!!

            • Easily add a new guest to an existing party

              It would be so great to be able to add another guest to an existing party! As it is, if you want to put another on there, you have to delete them all and start over.

              • The order of pictures in the Album should be as they are uploaded

                How the albums organizes the pictures makes them all scattered. They should be viewed in the order that they are uploaded. I have pictures from years back next to a recent picture with how the layout is now. There appears to be three columns in the albums and I try to organize my pictures by the date they were taken, but the columns mix them up.

                  Our photo sections are currently being evaluated for some improvements. This sorting features is definitely one we are looking at and hope to see some improvements in 2016. The site should allow you to drag/drop your photos around in the columns so you can order them how you choose, but this can get a bit snippy at times. Thanks for your patience!

                  • Offer different date formats

                    Please could you give an option in settings for changing the format of your wedding date. For example the only option currently is to have it as August 29, 2016, however as I'm British I would like to show it the English way: 29 August 2016.
                    Please could you add this feature?
                    Thanks!

                    • Passcode for select pages, but not all

                      I want my site to be public, I would like all of our friends to be able to see the general details, photos and other pages that we have created, however I would like to be able to have certain pages require a passcode so that we can post information specific to the event/topic, that only those which we give the code to can see.

                      Suggested functionality is that in the builder where there is the ability to "hide" a page, give the ability to make the page passcode at that level.

                          We are so glad you are seeing the notes coming in from your guests. Right now there is not an automatic way to reply, but we do look forward to adding this in the future. Since we assume most couples have a way to contact their guests, you can use the SHARE feature in your website builder to send them an email, but if you do not have their email address then this would not work yet. This is the part we will be working on for a future update.

                          Enjoy your planning!

                        • [Local Vendors] I want to view more than one photo at a time on vendor pages.

                          When I'm looking at pictures of venues, I'd like a way to see more than one at once, instead of having to continually hit the next arrow. This helps when quickly trying to determine if a venue could be a potential "favorite."

                            We are constantly working on improving The Knot Beta and plan to make improvements to the vendor photo viewing experience.

                            Please send along any ideas you have for viewing multiple photos at a time – do you have a favorite format or website that displays photos in a way that you think we should consider?

                            Thanks again!

                          • Wedding Website

                            I have seen a couple of different times about the photo uploader for the wedding website and I am having the same issue with photos not uploading. I see that this has been a known issue since May of this year and is still not fixed. For those of us brides who have our weddings coming up next year and need to get our websites changed over, this is very inconvenient and is adding extra stress to our wedding planning. What is going on? So far I am not impressed with the website updates.

                              Yes, this is still in process… change is hard and takes time sometimes, but we haven’t forgotten about this. Photos are being worked on as a current tech project and we hope to start seeing a few improvements in the next 2-4 weeks. We try to provide a great product for our free websites, but sometimes these things just get pushed back so we can tackle bigger issues. But it doesn’t mean it is less important in the long run.

                              Thanks for your continued patience.

We hear this from Dad’s on The Bump as well, and we are actively looking at how we can adjust our systems in the future so that gender and role are taken into more consideration in the planning process for weddings and babies. Thanks for your patience while we work on this.

                                I hope you are still able to find a great amount of applicable information on the site in the meantime.

                                Enjoy your planning!
                                XO,

                              • Guest List Manager Capabilities (like the old version)

                                I am attempting to export my guest list for the calligrapher, but it seems to be exporting the list as individuals. In other words, the individuals that should be grouped together as one party, are being separated. If I attempt to sort the list according to the Party Leader's Last name, it doesn't help because a number of parties have the same last name. So even though all the "Smith's" are together, the individuals are scrambled amongst different parties with that last name. I then attempted to sort the "Smith's" according to the Party Leader's First Name, to see if…

                                  I really appreciate you taking time to send in this feedback and to list the experiences you have had. In moving to our new technology, some of our functionalities were delayed. We are still looking at updating the Guest List Manager as we move into 2016. I will say those things you aren’t finding right now were not being used by most of the members using the tool, and this is why they were not in the priority list.

                                  It is good to hear you would like more of this to be in the new version and we are listening.

                                  Stay tuned and we will both see how these updates over the next few months land.

                                  It would be nice to have an interactive tab on the website that guests can have fun with. For example, it would be nice to set up a poll for guests to pick where the couple should go for their honeymoon. It would keep guests involved in the planning process along with helping out the bride and groom by getting suggestions and opinions from guests. You could also set up a quiz that guests can take to see how much they know about the couple; like where they first met and how long they were dating before they got engaged,…

                                  • Ability to change color themes on wedding website

                                    I wish I could customize the colors of my wedding website. Several of the website themes could work for my wedding theme, but none of them are close to the right colors. Considering I don't plan on buying the matching invitations, I feel like I should be able to customize the color theme.

                                      We definitely know this is an ask by many of our members. We continue to add more themes through the year to bring a broader theme set forward for all couples. Having the ability to change colors on our designs is something we hope to offer in the future. Thanks for asking the question – it helps our Design teams know how important this will be to bring forward.

                                      • I would love to be able to have my guests donate to the Alzheimer's Association

                                        The Charity Program is a wonderful idea. I would love to be able to have my guests donate to the Alzheimer's Association as members of both our families are currently living with it and others have died from it. As millions of Americans are affected by Alzheimer's, I know it might be a charity near and dear to others and greatly benefit from being added to your list

                                          What a wonderful cause indeed! We are reviewing our charity registries this year and hope that by summer we will have a much larger list available for you to choose from. Right now our limited list comes to us from the JustGive.org program and they continue to be a great partner with The Knot.

                                        • RSVP

                                          I was wondering if there was a way to customize the secure RSVP invites. I am using the Guest List Manager so that only people with invites can RSVP. However, it the guest enters their name differently than I did (for example if the guest types "Matt" vs "Matthew") the invite does not pop up. One way of resolving this may be to have the option to put in a nickname for the guest, so they can enter with either "Matt" or "Matthew." Is this feasible currently?
