DATE CHANGE: October Digital Workshop

The Second-Saturady Digital Workshop for the month of October has had a DATE CHANGE due to other county training happening at the Fire Training Center this weekend.  The October Digital Workshop will now be held on Saturday October 21st, at the Fire Training Center.

Please make a note of it.

Welcome to the New Web Site

Greetings, and welcome to our new web site.  The hope for this new site is to keep the ARES / RACES membership informed and up-to-date using a new blog-like format as well as provide information about emergency communications and other information through the menu system and links.

The site is constantly evolving and you may find some things haven't reached the point we'd like them to yet. With that in minde, here are some of the things we are working on:

  • Setting up the security certificate for a better web experience
  • Testing the email system
  • Getting logins set up for all members to access member-only content and to submit articles or links
  • Frequently used Frequency List (2m, 70cm, HF, including voice and Winlink)
  • Feedback form

Please bear with us as we continue to get things going.

Thank you

Asa  Jay - W7TSC

test loading photo

this is to test loading a photo.

Okay, the Photo insert didn't have an option to upload a photo.

I went to the "Images and Links tab and was able to upload a new photo and select it for the article Intro, then I selected another for the "Full Article."  Let's see what happens when I publish.

Okay, so here is what happens:

The INTRO photo is -only- on the front page.  When the user clicks the blog headline, they are taken to a new page where the Intro image is NOT displayed, but the Full Article image is.

That's something to remember.  It's probably best to use the Full Article image insert.  There may also be another editor that can insert photos better than this one being used.  I need to look into that.
