Family & Club Sites

Online galleries or journals have become very popular with the introduction of sites such as BlogSpot and MySpace.  The are very public sites and control is limited and keeping control of your information in the internet is important, particulary with family photos.  For families, clubs and other groups wanting their own gallery and their own domain names and email addresses, we can provide a fully customisable site over which you have full control.

  • Your own name in the site address - i.e. www.YourFamilyName.id.au or www.YourClubName.org.au
  • Personal email addresses - i.e. This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it or This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it
  • Registration Control - open registration, email activation or administrator activation
  • Full Administration Control - grant full or limited access to members as required.
  • Photo Galleries with access control - allowing you to keep browsing limited to registered members only if required.
  • Member Profiling - customise what information is collected at registration and what is public or private.
  • Extensive library of options and addons - publicly available extensions are mostly free and are easy to install.

Working with a reliable content management system, we can set up your family or club site, your way.  There are hundreds of free templates available, so you can have whatever colour scheme or layout that you like!  Templates can be modified easily to change text colours, graphics, et cetera, so no-one will have a site the same as yours.

Once the basic site has been installed and configured to suit your needs and you've had a few driving lessons, you will be able to totally manage your site.  Permissions can be given to certain members to also act as administrators, or as authors, editors or publishers.  Similarly, with the photo galleries, you can grant upload permissions as required.

Content of the site is added either from the front-end, in the case of members with authoriing, editing or publishing permissions, or from either the front or back-end for administrators.  Content can be categorised and sorted, published for public or member access, include pictures, and linking to individual pages or category lists is eay.

Contacts can be listed and emails sent via forms, so no email addresses need to be published.  That means you won't suddenly get hit with bulk spam within days of your email address appearing on your site.

Addon components are available by the bucket load!  You can do just about anything with your site with many free extensions.  Some examples are:

  • Photo Galleries with access control - allowing you to keep browsing limited to registered members only if required.  Add videos files if required.
  • Member Profiling - customise what information is collected at registration and what is public or private.  Create lists for easy searching.
  • Calendars - show upcoming events or dates of interest, with a minicalendar in the menu. linking to a full calendar browsable by week, month, year, event category or publisher.
  • Libraries - manage your documents, pdf files, downloadable applications or zip files, et cetera.
  • Mailing Lists & Newsletters - make communicating easier with your members.
  • Forum, Bulletin Board or Chat - add interactive cross-communication.
  • eCommerce - add a store to your site for selling merchandise, prints, et cetera, with PayPal option.
  • Template Chooser - let users change the look of your site while browsing with a selection of templates (also called skins).
  • Multi-Lingual Sites - add multi-lingual capability or translators.
  • Banner Ads and Affiliates - make money from your site with sponsors' ads and links.
  • many many more....

Whatever your needs are for your site, you can be sure of an interactive relationship with it!
