How to Register

Body: 
The following list shows the steps to take to register on the Beech Hill Village website. It may, at first, look to be a lengthy and complicated process, but each step is simple and straightforward. If you do anything wrong you will either be told immediately, or you can correct it later. We have spelt everything out in detail so that you know what to epect before you start.

Once you have registered you will be able to contribute to the Discussion Board on any aspect of life in Beech Hill; add comments to any of the pages which allow comments; receive email notification of any additions to the website on topics of your choosing; and receive email notification of important issues in te village.

The reason for this seemingly legthy process is to ensure that only legitimate users have access to these features, and so that you can personalize the amount of information you receive.

To register:
  1. Click on 'Register' at the top right hand corner of any page on the Beech Hill Village Website
  2. Enter a Username – This can be either your real name, a nickname or anything you like (within reason!). It will be the name you will be known as on the discussion board etc.
  3. Enter your email address – this should be a current, valid email address. It will be the email address to which all correspondence to you will be sent. Your email address will never be made public.
  4. Enter your real name. This is needed only for verification of the registration process and to avoid possible fraudulent registrations. Your real name will never be made public.
  5. Check as many check-boxes as you like in order to receive email notification of new items added to the website in the listed categories.
  6. Click on the ‘Create New Account’ button
  7. The registration form will disappear and you will see a message on the web page thanking you for applying for an account and telling you what happens next.
  8.  You will also receive an email (posted to the address you gave) telling you to wait for another email.
  9. In the meantime the webmaster will receive an email telling him that you have applied for an account and will take the necessary steps to validate it. Depending on how long the webmaster takes to respond to the email it may take from a few minutes to a few days before you receive your second email.
  10.   When you receive your second email click on the link (or copy it into your browser). This will take you to a page to set (or reset) your password. Click on the ‘Login’ button.
  11. This takes you to a screen with your account details. Here you must enter the password which you will use to login in future. Your password should ideally  be more than six characters long and can include upper and lower case letters, numbers and punctuation. Your password will be unknown to anybody apart from you! (not even the webmaster or any hacker!)  Enter the same password in both fields in order to minimize errors.
  12. Click on the ‘Save’ button. A message will appear at the top of the page confirming that your details have been saved.
  13. You are now logged in on the Beech Hill Village website which enables you to contribute to the discussion board, search the site (including Parish Council Minutes) and enable you to receive emails on the topics you have chosen.
  14. You could then, if you wish, apply to become a Contributor which will allow you to post items of news, events etc directly onto the website using a simple word-processor type interface.
