Introduction to our Website

This website has been set up by the Walter Taylor South Action Group for all members of the community to be able to share information.
 
The website contains articles, events and newsletters which are written by Walter Taylor South Action Groups editors, but it also contains a Forum and Article Comments which are open to all members of the community.

Browsing the Website

The website front page is updated constantly with the latest information, so make sure you come back frequently.
 
In order to fit many items onto the front page, you will only see a few lines of each article.  At the end of each article, you will see the words "Read More".  You can click "Read More" to view the whole article, including any attached files available to download.  You may also notice to the right of the "Read More" and "Attachments" other keywords that link you to other similar articles.
 
If you use a RSS news reader you can be kept up-to-date without regularly visiting the website.  Use the "Catch the News" RSS icon on the bottom right hand side column.
 

Posting your First Comment

When you're ready to post your own comment on an article, first make sure you are registered and logged in (see above).
 
If no-one else has posted a comment on an article, you will see the words "Add new Comment" at the bottom of this article.  Just click on these words.
 
If somone else has already posted a comment on an article, you will see the words "# Comments".  Click on "# Comments" and you will see the full article together with all comments.  Just at the bottom of the article, and before the comments start you will see "Add new Comment".  Click on "Add new Comment" to create your own article comment.
 
You can give your comment a subject, and type in your text in the Comment box.  You may notice some icons (pictures) above the body area - you can use these to format the text if you like (you don't have to do this however).  After you have finished typing, click on the "Preview" box.  This allows you to see what you have typed before you then use the "Save" button to save your comment.
