If you wish to contribute to the site then please email the webmaster who can set you up with a login and password. Once this is in place you can login into the site. The username will be of the format JohnS (i.e. first name, first letter of surname).
If you can’t remember your password then select “lost password” and an email will be sent to you to allow you to reset the password.
All users of the site should be able to comment on existing posts.
Members are able to post new topics that are of interest to other cyclists within Derby. In order to reduce spam, any new posts are queued for the moderator to authorise and are then publicly viewable.
To add a new post, first login and then select “New” and then “Post” from the top of the page.
This will give you a screen that lets you enter a title and text. Note that there are two ways of showing the text (Visual and text). Visual is the easiest and sufficient for most people. Text allows you to modify the html code for the page.
If you wish to add a picture or another kind of media file (e.g. document, video) then select the “Add Media” button. This starts a two stage process; firstly, the image file needs to be uploaded to the website and then it needs to be inserted into your post.
Drag and drop the file from your computer or select the file name from the list.
The upload of the file may take a while. Wait until it is complete. Then select the picture you want to include from the library of available images (or documents). The one you have just uploaded will be the first. Ensure the image has a tick against it (and that those you don’t want uploading don’t have ticks). Then select “upload”.
The image will now be in your post. Continue to add more text or more images. When you’ve completed the post remember to click on “Submit”.
If you have problems then please email firstname.lastname@example.org. If you find you don’t have a login then email email@example.com with your details and one will be set up.
