However, if you wish to see the header material again, click the Restart button. You might also find it as a handy shortcut for returning to the opening view of the site if you are deep within the page navigation.

For club officials

How do I form a club?

Once you know what your club is, who the Chief Official for the club will be along with that person's email address, and the Club Name, you are ready to register your club.

You use a form for entering the information about your club. You will enter a CLUB ID and then request a password for it. Some basic questions about SBR will need to be answered to validate to thwart attempts by outsiders to gain access to our system.

You can then proceed to make selections as the features you want and use a form to enter the information associated with each.

Who enters information about my club?

A club official does, and maybe that's you. It's up to the "Chief Official" to determine who it is. This official is (initially) the person who forms the club.

Wen will I be able to form my club site?

Now. Click the "Add/Edit Club" button that's revealed when you click the "Menu" button in the Menu strip for directions.

Can I choose my club category now?

Yes. You select the category from a list. In rare cases, it may be necessary to create a new category. That's simple to do, but it's important to avoid a proliferation of categories making the site more difficult to use. For that reason, I will work with you to define a new category.

How do I get a 'website' for my club?

Numerous options are available. First consider that you might not need a traditional website depending on the nature of yourclub and the amount of information you can provide about your club in the listing on the SBR Clubs page.

Possibly a simple PDF file may suffice. If a traditional website is needed, there are options. A Website Generator feature is under development that will offer you the ability to create and maintain a comprehensive custom site that is likely to meet all your needs. It produces websites based on the structure of the PetWise club site and offers considerable flexibility for your club.

Also, the are many "template" website generator apps (such as provided by GoDaddy, WIX Site Builder, and others). WordPress creates results that have a custom feel but require more skills than template-based tools. For a true custom site, you will need someone with software design skills who is accomplished in website and database design.

Besides the PDF approach which is as simple as creating a Microsoft Word or Apple Pages document and exporting it as a PDF file, you could choose to create a Facebook Page. GroupWorks provides a good selection of tools (posting and replying to messages, calendar/to-do lists, sub-groups for selective postings, etc) but may, in your opinion, fall short the scale of presentation you want. For GroupWorks, you invite persons to join, and they gain a temporary password that they reolace with their own. A memebship list is provided.

What is the absolute simplest way to be online?

If your requirements are minimal, use a PDF for describing your club. Draw upon the "widgets" provided by this Access All Clubs and Teams Association site to enhance your site.

What kinds of widgets are there?

Email contact form, a chat channel, photo library (using an app such as Flickr), a video or video channel (using YouTube or Vimeo), news and event feeds that eliminate email blasts (using Enfeedia), a ultra-simple resource scheduler (TBA), Twitter, and others in the works. A video conferencing and webinar feature is expected to be added in the Spring of 2019.
