In the month since we launched the new site, 26 people have registered, which is a great start, being about one-third of the total CBKA membership. The members’ forum has got off to a good start, with over 50 posts on 12 different topics, ranging from swarm lures to to plastic frame feeders. The forum is only as good as the questions posed, so please login and participate.
Here are a few tips to help you get the most out of the site. If you want to change your password, then you can change this easily. In the “Passwords etc” box shown on the home page, click “site admin”. On the site admin page, click “profile”, and scroll down to the new password fields. Don’t forget to click the “update profile” button, before you leave the page.
On the forum, you can post pictures, as well as words. You can also save a photo (known as an avatar), so that people more easily recognise you. To do this, navigate to the Forum page. Towards the top of that page is a button labelled “profile”. Click that, and then choose “Select your Avatar”. Scroll to “upload an avatar”, and click on the browse button to upload an image from your PC. Don’t forget to click the “update profile” button before you finish. If you have photos you’d like to show other people, you can attach them to a forum post, or email them to Adrian Davis, and I can put them in the website’s gallery.
