The RCC website has been created with the ability to seamlessly display different versions to different groups of people. Anyone contributing a story, report, photo or event to the site has the chance to set the visibility of their contribution to either 'anonymous user' (ie. everyone in the world with an internet connection) and 'authenticated user' (ie. members of the club who are logged in with an active/authenticated account).
Consequently, if you're a club member who visits the site WITHOUT logging in, you may well be missing events and other activities where the visibility has been restricted.
Why is there this split? This was included in the site so that information that events or reports which 'the world' should not be party to can be advertised on the site in the knowledge that only paid-up, current members will see them.
I haven't got time to log in... The site is set up so that members who log in have a 'cookie' stored on that PC that will log them in automatically when they return to the page. Consequently, even if you view the site on a work PC it should 'remember' you. If your PC is set so it does not store cookies, this can cause issues but most browsers also have the ability to remember passwords.
I still can't log in... In the top right of the home page any member can register (this can take a while so we can check that the user really does exist and is a paid-up member) or - if you have used the old site before or the new one and forgotten your password - you just click 'forgotten password' and follow the instructions.
I want an event to be publicly visible but not all the details... Anyone who wants to make an event visible but have 'hidden' details for members can either i) create two calendar entries, one of which is visible by 'anonymous user' and one 'authenticated user'. In the anonymous user entry ask club members to log in to see the other details in a separpate calendar entry OR refer them to the forum and put the information there as the forum is always only visible by logged in members.
