Website Designer 3.0 - Ability to set default subpage in Site Pages

You now have the ability to select which subpage you would like to mark as the default landing page when website visitors click on a Site Page link. A Site Page allows you to create a number of subpages and related pages as well as allow you to add photo albums, links and files to the pages. Subpages contain important information related to the topic that the Site Page was created for. As you add more subpages or delete them, you can quickly and easily change your default landing page. To make a subpage the default landing page, simply click on the subpage from the menu on the left side, when you are in the Edit Site Page screen. You will notice a link on the top titled "Make As Default Subpage" which you can click on to proceed.

Website Designer 3.0 - Sponsor Ads Page Display Options

The Sponsorship module allows clubs to place text or image sponsor ads on their own website as a means of generating revenue. Up until today, clubs had the ability to display these ads on the homepage, bulletin and on all subsequent secondary pages. As our way of providing you with more custom options, you now have more control over which secondary pages you want these ads to display on, including the photo album list, speakers list, speakers details page, event details page and more. To view the complete list and choose which pages to display the ads on, click on the Sponsor Settings link from the Sponsors page.

If the option for subsquent pages is turned off, the content on those pages will expand across what would have been the reserved right column meant for those ads.

ClubRunner Version 3.0 - Ability to Format Story Titles

To give users more control over formatting, we've made it simpler to format story titles.

Clicking on it will open a new editor window from where you will be able to easily bold, italicize, underline, change the font, colour and size of your title.

Introducing Email Communications 3.0!
Posted by Divya T. on 03 April 2014 04:08 PM

We are proud to introduce our new and improved Email Communications module on Version 3.0!

Not only is it faster but it also allows you to have more control over your emails. Upon logging in, you will notice a new link on the Admin Page titled "Email Communications" under the My ClubRunner section. To transfer over your emails from the old Version 2.0 system to this, you will see a button titled "Migrate Emails" which will automatically transfer all the emails and drafts that were created in the past 3 months. Please note that emails created using this new system will not display on the Version 2.0 system.

Create and send customized message templates easily, attach larger files (limit increased to 6MB), continue to manage your distribution lists, add images to your emails from directly from your desktop or image library and even style your text using the options available. With the new AutoSave feature, your emails will be saved every 90 seconds, so you never have to worry about losing your drafts!

Please note that you can continue to use the Version 2.0 system until July 24, 2014, after which it will be discontinued.
