Recent website updates

Menu for our Christmas meal

The menu and cost for the club’s Christmas meal is available from the website so you have it to hand.  Rather appropriately, it is available directly as a menu item on each page!

Please tell our Social Secretary your choices at our meetings on 16th or 23th October and at the same time pay the £26.95 per person.  Feel free to round it up to £27.  

Competition results

A list of the most highly placed images in the club’s internal competitions has been updated to include all competitions so far this year.  It can be found in the members area of the website.

Competition rule change

The rules have been amended to reflect the recent decision to increase the maximum image sizes for our internal PDI competitions.  Images may be no more than 1600 pixels wide and 1200 pixels high.  The change takes place with immediate effect.

Christmas meal

Our members’ Christmas meal takes place at the beginning of December.  The menu has been circulated previously by email and will be available to view again at our meeting on on 23 October.

Would members please be sure to let our Social Secretary have payment for your meal and your menu choices at our meeting on 23 October so that final arrangements can be made.

We are looking forward to an enjoyable evening at the start of the festive season.

Members Area

Our latest website has been running for a few years now and in 2018 we made some changes.

No pop up adverts

First, if you have been annoyed by adverts on our site, and if this has put you off using it, you may be glad to know that we should now be free of such intrusions.

Please let the webmaster know if you still see adverts on our site.

How to access the members area

There is a new members area available on the website.  It can be accessed from the menu on the main website.  It requires a WordPress user name and password because they host our website.  Our webmaster will then need to approve you as a user of the members area before you can gain access.  A full guide to the process can be found here.

Members area content

The members area content comprises

  • Competion results  – lists of the 5 highest scoring top images for each of our  competitions.
  • Other news and offers received – mainly information received about products and services relating to photography and specifically marketed to our members.
  • Downloads – an area where we can make available, either temporarily or more permanently, items such as presentations, tips and tricks, etc.

In future some resources may be transferred from the main website to the members area.

Any ideas?

The above has been done in response to feedback from members.  Please let the webmaster know if you have further ideas as to how our main website or the members area could benefit you and add value to your membership or how they could help us promote the club locally.

 

 

Workflow for submitting PDIs

Following on from a presentation a few weeks ago, and at the request of some members, we have added a step by step guide to help our members submit entries to our internal club PDI competitions.  It is just one approach; there are plenty of others!

We will take on board any comments that our members have and update the guide as necessary.

To view/download the guide, first go to our website and from the main menu select “Competitions”.

You will find a new section headed “How to ensure PDIs comply with club rules” which contains a link to the guide.
