New website launched
Greetings everyone and a Happy New Year and Decade!
The club's new website is now ready for business so we hope you have been busy with your cameras over summer and have some awesome images ready for our first competitions which are due at the end of January.
The new website has been built in a completely new platform so your old password will not work.
Here's what to do to get into the members' area:
Go to www.whgcameraclub.org.nz
You will see a little person icon on the top right hand side of the page.
Click on that icon to take you to the log in page.
Your accounts have all been created and your password needs resetting for the first time you use the site.
Click on Lost your Password and put in your Username or Email Address.
Your username is your First Name only or use your email address.
The site will issue you with a new password that will be emailed to you.
Now use these credentials of First Name and the Password to log in to the site.
Save these for autocomplete so next time it will be easy for you to log in.
ONCE YOU HAVE LOGGED IN
Now you are logged in to the site, you will see a new MEMBERS drop down in the Main Menu at the top of the page.
In the drop-down menu, click on ENTER COMPETITION which will take you to the new page for uploading your images into the competitions.
THIS MONTH'S COMPETITIONS
There are four competitions available this month. You can enter TWO images in each. Please check the Competition Rules page if you are not sure, but the file naming convention has stayed the same.
The four competitions are:
- 2001 Jan Self Assignment
- 2002 Jan Open Projected
- 2003 Jan Open Print
- 2004 Jan Best Holiday Print
The Best Holiday Print will have been judged on the meeting night, but you can get points so make use you upload a digital version of your prints!
Once you have entered your images, you will be able to see the images you have submitted for each competition ON THIS "ENTER COMPETITION" PAGE (not in your profile at the moment, although I am hoping to add that feature). It will only let you enter two images for each.
When uploading a photo, choose Type (projected or print), Category (Open, set subject, trophy or fun), and Format (colour or black and white).
For Title, just put the Title of the photo. You don't need all the code that you do on the image file name (just like before when you took out that info).
At this stage you are done, but if you want to you can Add,Change or Delete if you need to until the competition closes.
I have tried to make this process as easy as possible and I hope you find it so.
I do hope you enjoy using the new website.
If you have any feedback, please don't hesitate to send me an email or phone me.
