Blog Help

As the Blog is a new feature of the web page, it is needed to explain its function and how to get to use it.

What is it: A place where members (who have WordPress user names and been added to the blog by admin) can create “articles / notes / blogs” about club relevant points and share it with memebers of the community. All members (even if you dont have a WordPress user name) can then comment on the blog. All people who comment can then be kept notified of responses etc by email with the tick boxes provided allowing them to track the discussion that ensues.

So the Blog will allow members to share tips, tricks, outings, places to visit in the club community out side of club evenings. An example is that Colin may be going to the track to do a shoot, and he wants to let people know the date, time and directions so that others may join. He will log on and create a blog post, and others can leave comments if they want to come or know more.

So its a great tool for club purposes. So now how do you get to use it??

  1. If you do not wish to contribute and would rather just comment, you can do so without creating a user as describer above.
  2. If you want to contribute and create blogs, you need to create a WordPress users (Unless you already have one). To do this follow the following steps:
    1. Go to www.wordpress.com. You can do this by right clicking the link and opening it in a new tab. This will allow you to keep these intructions open and flick back and forth to follow them.
    2. Click on the “sign up now” option
    3. This will take you to a screen where you can create your unsername. HOWEVER, unless you want to create your own blog I suggest that you select the option “Signup for just a username” to start and wait for the screen to load without the domain name.
    4. The screen that loads will look like below. Add a user name you would like to use, your password and email address and click the sign-up button.
  3. You will then receive an email with a link, you need to click the link to confirm and compelete the process. Once you have a user name. Please provide the email address and user name to epc@webmail.co.za so that I can add you as a contributor to the site. This is not a long process. I will also be willing to add members during breaks or before club evenings. So come and ask 🙂

I hope these instructions have been informative, and I hope to see a lot of blogging in the future!!

Happy Blogging
