Registering and logging in
Notices & Events
Content Management System
To register, choose the second option at the top left hand side of the screen.
You will be asked whether you are registering as an individual or as an organisation. Make your choice and press submit.
The next screen shows a registration form. The items marked with a * are mandatory fields, i.e. you have to fill them in.
Choose your own username and a password, which must have more than six characters and include a number.
Once registered you can, if you wish, choose to sign up for specific areas of interest. You will be kept informed by email automatically of any items in those categories as they are added to the site. You should expect only 1-3 emails per week.
This part of the site allows you to search for other users and get contact details for organisations who have registered with the site. You can search by keyword under a variety of search criteria, e.g. parts of names or even postcodes.
The notice board allows registered users to post notices about any special events or happenings as they see fit. Itâ€™s a valuable and free way to publicise things such as forthcoming meetings, lectures, training sessions etc. So if youâ€™re not registered with the site yet, sign up now and start posting!
To add a new notice, click on â€˜Notices & Eventsâ€™ on the main menu, then the icon at the top marked â€˜Add new noticeâ€™.
You can add attachments to your posts such as meeting agendas or minutes, flyers and posters, in fact anything you wish to distribute to the other users of the site. Those who have signed up for email alerts in the category that you choose will receive an email notification of the new item.
In this section you will find a growing library of Adobe PDF files, images, Word documents, Excel spreadsheets and PowerPoint presentations with a wide variety of subjects and issues covered.
Access is read-only even for those registered with the site, but you may apply for higher level of access if you wish to contribute directly. Simply email firstname.lastname@example.org
Even if youâ€™ve just registered, you can use our CMS to add an article to our site database. There are easy Word style editing features and an image upload facility.
We will be informed of your submission via email and will consider all submissions for publication on the site. Regular contributors can, in time, become trusted content managers themselves.
