Oh I almost forgot, if you are on the home page the "PVWC.ORG" plate brings you to a "my.pvwc.org" site that you can customize like an iGoogle page. You can also sign in from there. Also notice if you scroll to the bottom of any page there is a sign in link.  If you signed in on my.pvwc.org or a different page and you don't see the "post" bottons to make new posts, just click on the sign-in link again and it will usually just update that you are signed in.

New Blog Sites area

posted Jul 6, 2009, 4:37 AM by VW Rob Alexander

This is the launch of the new blog sites area.  We haven't tried it out much so as we do please post questions and concerns here.  The hope is that this will fit in with the whole site theme, work with one login, allow members to communicate easily, and be able to do even more than a typical forum. 
The members area is all about you.  Use the "insert" menu to add pictures or what ever.  Once you've made a post you will also be able to see that post by itself at http://rides.pvwc.org/your-post-title   (notice the dashes will be there in place of spaces.)
