Claremont High School Alumni Society
HOW TO GET STARTED:
Simply look at the top of the list in the left column and click on "Class Rosters ". Find your Class year, click on it then select your name, and follow the prompts to select your password and start your profile.
If your name is spelled incorrectly or your class year is wrong, you can correct it when you log in. If you choose to omit your birth year, select Y at the top of the list of years.
If you click "Remember Me" when you log in, you will not need to enter your name and password next time you go to the site. Note there is a password retrieval feature to click on: "Forgot Password?" in case you need to log in sometime and can't remember your password; the password will be sent to your e-mail inbox. You can login from computers other than your home computer but you will need to enter your password. Remember to use the SAME email address each time you log in.
How to upload pictures to your profile page:
Be sure you are logged in on the home page. In the links on the left side under MEMBER FUNCTIONS, click on the link: Edit/Upload Photos.
The Photo page will appear and you’ll see a gray box titled: Upload New photo. Click on this box and you will be at the Add Photo page.
The Add Photo page gives basic instructions for uploading your photos.
Sort: The sort number controls the order in which photos display on your page. By default your pictures will appear in the order you entered them, so this isn’t important for your first picture. But later if you want picture #5 to appear first, you will have to change the sort numbers on your pictures. If you delete a picture, the sort numbers for the remaining pictures do not change (e.g., if you delete picture #2 out of 4 pictures, you will show pictures #1, 3, and 4.)
Caption: Caption is the description you write for your picture.
Browse: This is the most important one, for this is how you find the picture on your computer and get it to appear on your page.
Your first picture will automatically be Sort Number 1.
Now click the Browse button. A list of folders on your computer will show up. Locate the folder that holds your picture. For most members this will probably be the My Pictures folder located in the My Documents folder. When you have clicked through to your picture file, click the view button at the top to show icons as pictures. This makes it easier to find the specific picture you want to upload.
Select the picture you want to upload by clicking on it once, and then click Open at the bottom of the box.
Now you will be taken back to the Add Photo page and in the Upload Photo box you will see the path to your picture.
Enter the Caption for your picture in the box.
Click the SAVE CHANGES button.
Shortcut for multiple pictures: If you are uploading several pictures that are in different folders, you can copy them to your desktop, then delete them later. Make sure you COPY, not move, your pictures, so you won’t delete the original.
If you are still having problems, please contact us.
*Note: The first time you want to post on the Forum, you will be asked to set up a forum profile. This only consists of 3 short items, all optional.
- a signature, if you desire one
- your location
- setting your time zone.
"My Signature" (optional) is anything you may want to appear at the bottom of each of your messages. For instance, your name, a short proverb or witty saying, etc.
If the picture that you want to use is already uploaded to your profile page, just click "Make This My Master Photo". If your photo is not already there, you will need to upload it (see "Upload Photos to Profile" under the "Using Our Site" category).
How to put photos in your messages
Posting pictures in the Forum is easy! See the attached pix at the top of the page for illustration of the following steps:
1) Click on the Image icon (the little yellow square in the editor, at the top left, to the right of the word 'source').
2) In the Image Button popup, click "Browse".
3) Find your picture in your files and click (or double-click) on the picture.
4) Click on "Upload Now"
5) Click "OK" when it tells you it's uploaded. You can now see your image in the preview box.
6) Click on "OK" at the bottom of the Image Button box, and your picture will appear in your message box.
7) Complete your message (any text you want to add), then click on "Save". You can also preview your message if you desire, before clicking Save.
Using the text editor:
Experiment, if you want, with the editing tools. Changing the size and color of your font is fairly easy.
Use the Preview button to see how your message looks before saving it. After saving your post, you will still be able to edit or delete it.
You can also attach files to your message.
Click on "Browse" at the bottom of the message box.
Locate and click on the file you want to attach.
After you save your message, your file will appear as a link at the top of the message (see attached pic of attached file at the top of this message).
