Tell us what you think

Jerry (N0OUW) has been re-organizing the website a bit lately and would like to hear what everyone thinks.

I have created a role called Web Content Manager' and assigned that role to myself, for the moment.

I also created a role called 'Webmaster' and have assigned that role to Sebastian (he is the only one with God authority)

During my re-organizing efforts I have been learning a lot about how the site works and have come to realize that Drupal is indeed very powerful, which in itself makes it fairly difficult to learn. I suspect that during my efforts, I may have removed some function(s) that used to be there and have been somewhat successful in bringing some of those features back. But, now I understand them a lot better and I am keeping notes with the intent of creating a userguide in the future to assist future web managers in learning the system.

In addition to the first two roles I mentioned above, I have created roles for President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, Membership, Technical, and Special Events Chairman. At this point these roles have the same authority as any 'authenicated' user. An authenticated user is one that has a userid and can login to the website. I can add function to these roles as necessary and as we determine the specific additional function that a 'Role'may require.

The main Item I have been working on is to get a 'Members Only' section created. Currently only 'authenticated' user will see this section presented in the main navigation area. 'Unauthenticated users will see the main menu items from this section in tabs across the top of the screen but will see a message indicating that you need to be logged in in  order to access this area.

Which brings me to my final point. Currently, if our database does not show that you are current with your membership dues of a measly $20 annually, you will not be able to login. There will still be much to view on the site without logging in, but we plan to have more membership related content in the 'Members Only' section that will provide a real benefit to keeping your membership current. 

I invite everyone to use this forum to let us know what you think about the site and especially the recent updates.  This will help in deciding what new content is needed and whether or not the site remains useful and relevant.

............... Jerry  (N0OUW) LARC Secretary and website Content Manager

Website Passwords

Jerry - N0OUW  I recently discovered that the password you select, or the one that I select for you

when I reset it, is case sensitive. I will try to be careful during PW resets and wanted to make everyone aware.

"For Sale" listings

They are awkward to read because they are more than a page wide and you have to keep shifting right and left to see each line. That isn't the case with the other pages I have seen on the site so I figured it was something that could be fixed.
