We are pleased to announce that we will be cutting over to a new club website starting tomorrow evening (October 11th), and expect the migration to be completed and up and fully running by the end of the weekend. The new platform utilizes WordPress, which powers some 34% of all of the world’s websites.
It will be “responsive”, which means it will fit properly on any size device: laptop, desktop, smart phone, or tablet. On member pages, the navigation links box will appear at the top left, but on smaller screens, it will appear down at the bottom below the page’s content.
Board member and Jr. Tennis Chair Amanda Loehnis served as designer. She also brought in local professional photographer Andrea Chalon, who captured many beautiful images around the Club. Her photos are not only featured on the non-member pages, but are used inside on the member pages as well. The web pages now have the same theme, which means the fonts, colors, and sizes are attractive and consistent throughout. Paul Niebuhr of Synergy Innovative Systems continues as our technology provider.
Access will be the same: nc-fc.com. Your login username will not change either. However, the passwords will be reset to last names (all lower case), but as usual, can be changed as desired by clicking the “Change Password” link on the left after you log on. You can also click “Update My Profile”, and “Email Preferences” to select which blast lists you want to subscribe to.
Another improvement is the email blast system. We will now be using the professional service Mailchimp, which has many years experience providing reliable email service. Hopefully this will eliminate the problems some of you have experienced by not always receiving club emails.
We will continue using SignUp Genius for events and clinics, and also the League Management system for sports team player availability. Bookings for the Field House, paddle courts/Hut, and poolside tables will be continued as well.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you run into any problems, or have questions or comments.
