New Event

Now we are not using PayPal I recommend using Events->Event Front End for all events. Any necessary information should be inserted. The contact email will default to the event author unless you enter an alternative email address.

When the event is shown now it has a “Click here” that will enable an email to be sent to the event organiser.

If you find that you want to use the inbuilt event system to register participants you can choose Events -> Manage Events -> Add/Manage Events, find the event you want to change then click the RSVP tab and check the box to allow registration. This will open up a whole bunch of other possibilities too but for the moment this is all you need to do.

The advice pdf I created to use the full event system is linked below for more detailed instructions (

How to post with an attachment

Using the committee option "Submit News/Message" is fine for most cases (and why not just cut and paste whatever document you are thinking about attaching? its then searchable and in the system) But if you really want to add an attachment you will need to use "Edit All Posts" 





This screen either allows you to "edit" and existing post (click on a title and choose edit) or [Add New].

Choose where you want the post to appear and click [Add Media].










Here you have a number oif options which you can explore later but for now click on the Upload Files tab and choose [Select]. Here you can explore you local drive and find the document you wish to upload.




Make sure your chosen file is selected and click [Insert into Post]


Then click

Events Guide

There are a number of ways that Events are accessible including the Events menu option (CLE, Non-CLE and Past Events), from the main screen tiles (Upcoming CLE and Upcoming Non-CLE Events). The sidebar contains the current month's calendar as well as a list of the most recently entered events. Past events can be listed for reference purposes. Clicking on an upcoming event, be it the title in a list or the date on a calendar will take you straight to one of two formats depending upon the detail the organiser has chosen.

The quick entry will show the event screen with a link (it says click here with here in red to show it is a clickable link)

If they are using the site to collate enquiries you will see the booking form. Clicking on the [Send your Booking] button sends an expression of interest to the event organiser who will contact you with further details individually.

Contacts Guide

Clicking the menu item "Contact" 5or the top middle tile on the main screen) takes you to a screen with a series of tabs for each of the committee members available to contact and the webmaster.

  • Secretary -  for administrative matters (not membership related)
  • Membership - all aspects of membership
  • President - more official formal emailing
  • Treasurer - money matters
  • Webmaster - technical issues with the operation of the site.

Fill in the details exactly as you would an email, and click [Contact Us] to send the email.

All Forums Guide

  The top part of the screen shows the page title (All Forums) and below that Home > Forums. The underlining indicates that clicking it will take you to the home page (which you won't want to do because this is a smaller popup screen and home is already visible underneath it). The main part of the All Forums page shows the list of available forums underlined (blue if empty, red if not). The underlining means that clicking on the forum name will take you to that specific forum.

The Classified forum heading includes For Sale, Wanted and For Hire as sub-forums that you use exactly the same as other forums (see below)

Clicking on Clay Pigeon Shooting or any of the underlined forum titles will take you to that forum.
