When we decided to build this web site, we had several things in mind. We wanted to have a venue where people could get information about the BCRA and we wanted a venue where people could not only comment on information found here but also, contribute information that is relevant to the association and it’s members.
We decided to build this site on what is known as a Blog Platform, which allows managed interaction between the site owners, outside contributors and visitors as well.
Blog platforms are not generally hard to understand once a viewer is aware of and has some directions about how to navigate and participate either through comment or article submissions.
We have attempted to guide our viewers with this menu section to information about “How To Use” this site. If you have difficulty understanding or navigating after reading the pages in this section, please contact Randy May, site administrator for further help if needed.
I see a Blog Platform as similar to a book. The Blog is a document where the author or publisher has gathered information (content) together to present it in an organized form to the readers. We use Pages and Posts for sharing content. Pages are designed by the site owner and include written content as well as photo images, graphics and even embedded video clips. Pages in a Blog Platform are managed solely by the administrator of the Blog and can not be published by anyone other than persons with administration authority, which is controlled by the site administer.
Posts are similar to pages, as they can contain written content, images, graphics and video clips, yet a post may be published by anyone who has registered as a user on this site. All Posts that are submitted have to be approved by the administrator before the content will be public.
You can type a word, name or subject into the search field found at the top of the right side bar, click on search, and all info related to your search “strings” will come up.
