“Virtual GO2 – an introduction to our website.

A mnemonic image for you

Some pages of grow-our-own.co.uk are for public information – others are for members only, and are protected by one password for all.  One such page is our “Members Area” blog, which has a front page showing all current news items (“posts”) shown much like the newsletter.

Alongside the blog is a menu leading to over 100 members pages; a table summarising the 8 most recent posts and a list of categories for searching the website.

When you follow a link in the newsletter or elsewhere, it may take you to the Members Area and your computer can “remember” the password for you for some weeks, so you may not be aware that you are reading a Members page. You’ll find links everywhere to everything, and Google can help you find your way round it.

The website has 216 pages, 243 posts and 1200 other media items – pictures and documents – please investigate – and let me know what you think. If you have ideas you would like to share or (better still) the skills to help manage this, do let me know. We use WordPresswordpress-login for the website and MailChimpmailchimp-loginfor the newsletter – both of these are designed to be easy to learn, and free to use.
