29 January 2013: Going Live

We’ve gone live with the new site- my wife helped me test and check things over. I don’t think anything is seriously broken, though there are a few mostly cosmetic things that remain to be done. Undoubtedly there are still some links that point back to the old site- I’ll fix them when I find them. There are also features and functionality that I have yet to implement. All in due time.

One of the neat features of WordPress besides being easier to manage, update, and maintain is it’s built-in comment system. In order to leave comment, you need to have a user account and be logged in. Now, I don’t expect a whole lot of people to take advantage of this new functionality, but I sincerely hope some of you choose to participate.

The normal procedure for signing up for an account is to click on the Login link on the right side of the page and then click “register”. You’re then prompted for a username and an email address to send your password to. Unfortunately, outgoing email isn’t working on the server just now. I’m working with the server administrator to solve this issue, but in the mean time to sign up for an account, email me at gsfergusson@clarylake.org and provide the username you’d like to have and I’ll set up an account and send you your password. Once you’re logged in, you can update your user profile and change your password if you want. Sorry for the inconvenience!

UPDATE: I got email working so signing up for an account is a now a simple matter of clicking on the Log in link on the bottom right side of the page and selecting Register (it occurs to me there’s a Register link on the page right above the Log in link). Enter a username and a valid email address and you’ll shortly get an email with your temporary password. When you first log in, you’ll be at your profile page where you can add additional information about yourself. At the top left corner of the screen you can click on the Clary Lake Association link to get to the site.

If you have any questions or problems, email me.
