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.

Website Designer 3.0 - Selecting Photo Albums for Photo Albums List Page

You can now choose which photo albums you want displayed on your built-in photo album list page which you can link to from the menu bar.

Website Designer 3.0 - Spouse Birthday Added to Birthday and Anniversary Widget

The Birthdays and Anniversaries widget now also provides the option of displaying the spouse's birthday information on the homepage through the widget. To activate this option, click on the cog wheel on the widget to go to the settings page and simply check the "show spouse birthdays" option.

Website Designer 3.0 - New Design for Calendars

We've rolled out visual enhancements to the calendars to include a fresh look and a simplified design.

Website Designer 3.0 - Updated navigation methods for Stories and Photo Albums

You can easily filter out stories and photo albuns based on where they appear and can view the list of stories/albums that displayed only in those specific sections. You will now see additional links on the story and photo albums page that will let you view the list of items listed in those specific areas. Whereas for stories, you will be able to filter by:

  • Stories library
  • Stories widget
  • Stories list page
  • Custom page stories
  • Bulletin stories

For photo albums, you will be able to filter by:

  • Photo album library
  • Photo album widget
  • Photo albums list page
  • Custom page photo albums
  • Bulletin photo albums

eBulletin 3.0 - Logic Update for the Read More Link

Changes have been made to the logic behind the read more link for the brief and content sections of the eBulletin. Now, if you only enter text in the brief section and leave the content section empty, the read more link will not display.

Events 2.0 - Map Displaying Venue Location

For events that include location details, the map in the Events details page will display venue details based on the address of the event, and not the location details entered.

District 2.0 - District Positions now included in Download Member Data Report

Now when generating a report from the Download Member Data report, you can select District positions as a filter you would like to apply to your report and can select by position as well as Rotary year.

eBulletin 2.0 - Bulletin Greeting now uses nickname

For clubs and districts on Version 2.0, the bulletin greeting will now display the recipients' nickname instead of the first name, when the nickname is populated in their member profile.

eDirectory Reports Builder 2.0 - Biography fields added

When building a report using the eDirectory Builder 2.0 report, you now have the ability to select member private biography, public biography and vocational biography as fields for the membership column.

MyEventRunner - Event Details Page

Updates have been made to the logic when creating an event in MyEventRunner, such that you will now need to save your new event from the event creation page before proceeding to customizing and building it further with promo codes, a header, etc. The options on the left will remain disabled until the event has been saved.

District Grants - Updates to the Individual Project Report

Based on the feedback received by District administrators, District funding sources entered by clubs in the budget section will no longer be copied over to the Individual Project report.
