How to use this site
We’ve increased password security and convenience in this version of haslemerechamber.co.uk, so there are slightly different initial logins for new and existing members. Both, however, start by clicking ‘login’ in the top right hand corner of the page display (desktops, laptops and tablets) or the hamburger (phones) – if you are using a phone, you will find login at the end of the menu that appears.
Enter the email address associated with your account, then the password you entered on your application form.
Enter the email address associated with your account, then click ‘forgotten password’ and ‘submit’.
The system will send you a link. Click the link to access a ‘reset password’ form. Enter and re-enter your new password, which should contain at least one capital letter and one numeral. Click ‘submit’.
Call up the login form again, enter your email address and the new password. Click ‘submit’ and you should have access to your account details, profile and the areas needed to post news items, pictures and job opportunities.
If you still have problems, please get in touch with the Webmaster (use the form on the CONTACT page) who will endeavour to get you logged in as quickly as possible.
To reset your password at any time, login and go to ‘Account’. Enter your new password and confirm.
If you subsequently forget your password, you’ll need to go back to the ‘first time’ procedure (see above). User passwords are stored beyond reach of site administrators and the Chamber Committee: If you lose it, we cannot find it for you!
Submit or edit profile details
After you have logged in, click on ‘My Profile’ at the top of the page. When the profile page comes up, click on the gear wheel under the bottom right hand corner of the main picture, then click on ‘Edit Profile’.
Please also refer to our new PUBLISHING GUIDELINES page
Click the +New option on the bar at the top of your screen, and select ‘post’ from the dropdown menu. You will also need to select the relevant category for your post: News, Offers or Jobs. Then simply type or paste in your title and the body text in the appropriate panels. The ‘Excerpt’ should be a brief synopsis of your post: It will appear on the News page, with a Read More link to the main article.
You can also submit details of forthcoming events in a similar way. Events are displayed in the Calendar (you can change to a chronological list, if you prefer). The Except appears when your cursor hovers over the calendar entry; click on the entry to see full details of the event.
Posts of Offers and Jobs may remain live indefinitely. If you wish an offer or job offer to expire, please indicate the expiry date in your post, so that the Moderator can program an automatic removal on the expiry date.
To avoid style conflicts, it’s always advisable to use the ‘paste as text’ facility. Your heading and body will be styled automatically.
Your posts should always include a ‘featured image’ but you may add additional pictures in the text area by clicking ‘Add Media’ and ‘upload’. You may also create a gallery of images.
Each post will be subject to moderation, but every effort will be made to ensure your contribution is published as soon as possible.
Note: If necessary, you can edit your posts after they have been published.
If you have an offer or a job vacancy with an expiry date, please indicate this in the text. The Moderator will arrange for the items to be removed automatically on the expiry date: however, items will be retained in the system for re-use if required. If a job vacancy is filled before the expiry date, please let the Moderator know (via the contact form) so that the expiry can be brought forward.
The site is currently designed for horizontal (wide) images, so for the best results please avoid vertical formats. As a general rule, pictures around 1MB will reproduce well, but smaller files are acceptable if the image quality is good. Very small files (less than 200kB) do not enlarge satisfactorily. The maximum uploadable file size is 8MB.
Please help promote the Chamber by inserting a link to this website from your own homepage. We suggest something like this (and hyperlinking the url):
“XYZ Company is a member of Haslemere & District Chamber of Trade & Commerce – www.haslemerechamber.co.uk”
