CHANGEOVER TO NEW WEB SITE
From Christmas this web site will change to utilise the U3A SITEBUILDER software. The big advantage is that every group can put exactly what they want on their page. The Group Leader will have control. This means that each group will have someone responsible for editing their group's entry on the web site. There will also be a new editor for the Ems Valley U3A information.
Click here to see the prototype web site. This site is not yet "live".
We are already running test pages for the new site and several group leaders/coordinators have been very helpful in trialling the system. It is easy to use, if you can send an email you can edit your web page, the editing process is very similar. As it is all "on-line" it can be edited from anywhere in the world, so you can edit the web site whilst on the beach in Spain.
This YouTube video I have made, shows you how easy it will be to edit your Group page
You need your sound turned ON and it is best in FULL SCREEN (click the square in the bottom r/h corner when the video is runng.
As I have explained there will be no "webmaster" to edit pages. Instead we will have a Site Administrator who will keep an eye on the web site ensuring editors obey the rules.
I, as the current webmaster, will remain as administrator until the 2018 AGM. After that someone else will have to take over. If you are interested in becoming web site administrator please contact Hazel.
All groups will be contacted over the Christmas period with information on how to edit their page and their unique username. If you want to know sooner CONTACT the webmaster.
The new site will be up and running from 1st January.
Dave McVittie, Webmaster
