We are now one week into the regime of the new Pirton Players website and so far we have 50 members signed up. Hopefully you have had a look at the Past Productions page and also seen the list of upcoming events in the Diary.
The most important thing to do right now is to ensure you have subscribed to emails which you can do by logging into the website and clicking on the circle shown in red below:
When you have clicked this select "Settings". Click on the Subscribe button shown in the red circle below.
The rest of this article talks briefly about some of the things you can do with the new site.
There is a Mobile Phone version!
The new PP website is completely mobile phone friendly so you can visit www.pirtonplayers.org on your mobile device and you should see the website. I would encourage all members to take a look at the site on their phone, log-in and especially try out the Noticeboard. You can take pictures and video directly from your phone and upload them to the Noticeboard for all to see - this should be great for sharing rehearsal pictures or for showing the type of props you are looking for. The site looks fine on my iPhone but I could do with some Android users to test out the functions.
When you log into the website you will see a button labelled "Create Post". This appears at the top of the noticeboard. All members of the website can add things to the noticeboard and if you have signed up for emails (see above) then you will get an email whenever anyone adds something new.
The noticeboard allows you to add pictures and videos - you can also send pictures to it directly from your mobile phone. New posts will always appear at the top of the list and the Noticeboard is shown to you automatically whenever you log-in or click on the Members option at the top of the screen.
The red "Add Event" button allows you to add content to the Diary page. As a member of the website you can add events so that they appear on the Diary page to all visitors to the website. The Add Events screen allows you to upload a file - you can add Word documents and PDF files.
You can add an event using your mobile phone - just visit https://www.pirtonplayers.org/add-event
