Everyone registered on the site has a profile page. You can use this to provide information about yourself such as your own history within the Woodcraft Folk or the groups, projects and camps that you have been involved in. All profile pages are public but you can set your profile to be private if you wish.
When you log in yourself, your profile page will also contain tools that only you can use. These include setting your email address and a set of services in the dashboard area.
Editing Your Profile
Your profile provides basic information about you that you can choose to make available to other users on the site. You can choose to make your profile public so that others can search for you as part of the archive. You can also choose if you wish other members to be able to contact you through the site.
Your display name will be used wherever content you have added to the site, such as archive memories or trails, is displayed. If you do not provide a display name your username will be used instead.
Your description or biography is a short text about yourself that will be shown to other people who can view your profile.
Adding Yourself to Woodcraft Groups, Projects and Camps
You can add a list of Woodcraft Folk groups, camps and project you have been a member of. To add a group, click on the JOIN GROUP button select from the list of groups provided and enter the years for when you joined and left the group. If you make your profile public your name will appear in the list of members for each group in the archive. If the group you were a member of is not listed, click on the ADD NEW GROUP button, enter the name of the group, the dates it was setup and, if appropriate, closed down and select its location from he drop-down menus. Click SAVE GROUP to add this to the list.
You can add yourself to camps and projects, or create new ones, in a similar fashion.
The dashboard will provide a list of all the Archive Memories you have added, Archive Trails that you have created and, if appropriate, Transcripts and Articles you have worked on. You can access each of these from the listing to edit, change between public or private viewing, or delete from the site. If you have permission to edit transcripts or author articles you will also see a list of all the transcripts and articles you have worked on which you can access from here to edit.
