The new website has now been working for 4 months and is proving to be very stable
Well done Kate and thank you
I believe the main purpose of the website is to provide information to both members and potential members plus provide an avenue for members to communicate with each and share things.
The branch is managing to do this without any cost to members thanks to the financial support of our sponsors - advertisers. Thank you and please consider them when you are after things bike related or looking to get your bike serviced.
Most things are fairly obvious and as editor I try to keep the front page both relevant and current.
Clicking in Latest Content will do the obvious things except bring up recent picture albums
So it pays to go to "Pictures" from time to time to check for recent content
Most hiccups with the site have been in "Pictures" where people such as me have tried to load too many pictures in one gallery or pictures that have not been reduced in size.
A perusal of "Pictures" will show an array of things members have been up to recently
You (as a registered user) can share your experiences with both other members and the public. You can even post a link to YouTube content if you think it is appropriate
I will try an example here of ride I did in Holland some years ago (and repeated last month) - some quirky things include riding on the right and you my notice water in the canal beside the road is higher than the polders (fields) to the right. Sorry about the sound it is only wind noise
***edit for teaching **** The blue button in the input bar up where the B and paste button etc are will post the video in the post wherever the cursor is. and I have just seen how bad the enter is so i'll fix that shortly. You just click on the blue button and paste your url in the video url space and click insert and you will get this ->
As a rough guide do a "blog" if you want to share an experience or story and do a public notice or for sale notice where appropriate
Enjoy the website and please let me know of any issues you have with it
