How to use this website

This group is mandatory. It helps you how to use the website. Although it isn't difficult, you might want to have some feedback every now and then.  

Messaging

You might have noticed that you receive an e-mail once new content has been posted. Or you received an e-mail which tells you got a private message. This can be handy but also a bit annoying. To change the settings, visit 'my account', click on 'edit' and change the settings under 'messaging and notifications settings'.

Problems with Google Chrome

I might have encountered a problem with Google Chrome. When I log in to the website with my username and password, I can visit any page without any problems in any browser. However, it seems that Google Chrome doesn't work correctly when I click on one of the groups from http://www.soctat.org/groups.
For no particular reason the website automatically reacts as if I am not a registered user but a anomous one. Did anyone of you experienced the same? Firefox and Internet Explorer do not show this bug.

How to create a menu

Those who are assigned the administrative role (group admin) can create and edit the menu of their group. To do so, they need to create a static page (e.g. with content that rarely changes, like the description of the menu item).

This can be done with group page. This content type is only visible to those with the administrative authority. When creating this kind of content, you will have to fill out the title. Underneath title you need to choose your menu (menu settings) for the appropriate group.

Logged in

Once logged in you will see the search box and your user name. Underneath your username you will find a few links to contact, my unread, my account, user list, create content and log out.

User login

You can see the user login screen. Once you have registered, you can login by using your username and password. You can also create an account. You will be redirected to a new page, where you have to fill out some forms. When you are finished, you have to click on create an account. You will then receive an email from the siteadmin. This means that your registration is pending approval. Once it has been approved, you will receive another e-mail containing information about how to log in, set your password, and other details.

Navigation bar

As you can see, we created a navigation bar (in red) where you can find the information that is publicly available. This is the about page, events, groups, members and publications. These pages can only be edited by a few people with more privileges.   

About this website

This website has several groups. This group 'How to use the website' gives you relevant information on how to use this website. Using soctat.org isn't difficult at all, but it might require some understanding of the roles of users, using content types (nodes) and how to order the content correctly (menu).
