template features

Website Facilities:

All clubs using the template have the following;

  • A modern, attractive website, using the latest technologies and standards; all websites are responsive for viewing on any device, e.g. desktop computer, laptop, i-Pad, tablet, smartphone, TV 
  • Branding, colour schemes etc according to type of site.
  • an easy to maintain website; very little technical knowledge required, though the advanced user can really go to town!
  • Choose which features they want to display on their home page (and make use of them elsewhere in the site)
    • photo galleries (contents created automatically)
    • upcoming events
    • calendar
    • club officers
    • links (also includes automatic RSS Feed from Rotary International, without any effort!)
    • integration with social media
  • Create an unlimited number of pages
  • Easily add slideshows and headline images to pages
  • A long-term aim is to integrate with the RI membership database, to prevent duplication of effort.
  • available in English, French, Spanish, Italian and German

Club administration:

All sites have a password protected members area, only accessible to members of their club.

Members can:

  • send emails, with attachments, to other members
  • send apologies if unable to make a meeting/event
  • view the birthday list, club officers, club committees
  • easily access the future programme
  • communicate and discuss project ideas via a club forum
  • access other forums available to all template users (e.g. help or discussion lists)
  • one or more committee members can be granted access to edit the pages associated with their committee.
  • create a members 'ticklist' form for club events.
