Hi Dick:

For Sale - members can continue to post on the forum as usual. Because the For Sale page is a web page its created through the Content Management System i.e. there isn't a member's ability to post direct to the For Sale. Simon is looking at arrangements (aka volunteer) for someone to do this function.

Search Function : on the public side -> 'hamburger' menu -> Cruising Info -> Search OCC Website (actually an embedded Bing search which we've submitted XML site maps for)

Thanks, Tony.
Questions:
  • What is the procedure for a member to enter For Sale items
  • I cannot locate a search function on the website; can you help?
Thank you,
Dick Guckel

We've released the latest version of the website this week. New features:
  • New map-based view on the public side of FF articles, forum posts (related to cruising), blog posts and news
  • New map-based view on the member's side showing OCC events, port officers, affiliated clubs, dockage offered, marina discounts and supplier discounts
  • Members offering dockage can now drop their own pin on a map showing exactly where the mooring is
  • Members can add a short cruising report specific to a location (and it will show up on the map)
  • Periodic ability for the Secretary to import data from the Fleet Map so that we can mail boats within a certain area
  • Webshop for regalia
  • Event booking forms and linked to the payment gateways
  • Online voting
  • Items for Sale is now a proper webpage
  • Improved website searching (searching within the website and also browser searches using Bing/Google)
  • Usability enhancements such as adding expirey dates to items posted on the website, automatic rotation of uploaded images, bulk uploading of the gallery.

A few things still to do e.g. look at changing the style sheet so that members can see the fields more easily.
