Website Progress Report 2/26/13

Hello everyone!

I just wanted to write a quick note to let you know where we’re at with the website as far as membership login, SWPC Store and a few other things go.

Thank you so much for your positive support and for your patience as I continue to work with our website developer and his team to get our site up to speed!

Myrna CG Mibus – SWPC Website Content Manager

Our new website is pretty much up and running, as you can see, but here’s an update on some of the things we’re still working on:

Member Login – As mentioned in Member Login Not Necessary, we are still getting the membership login and member functions working. I was hoping to have Membership up and running this week but, since I will be out of town for a few days, it’s likely I won’t get the login information to you until early the week of March 1st. But that’s okay – you can browse the website without being logged in.

SWPC Store – Right now the Store is in demo mode and no orders are being filled because we need to get a few more things figured out. We should have the SWPC Store up and running sometime next week. If you need to order something before then, contact Larry Jenkins directly through our Contact Us form.

Tool Rental – We’ll have the Tool Rental part of the website up and running very soon, too. If you are need something right away, please contact Claire directly through our Contact Us form.

Forums – Even though the membership login is not yet working on the site you CAN log in to the forums using your current forum login user name and password. If you don’t have your login information please contact Forum Admin Kurt Selbert at swpcforums@gmail.com  and he will help you out.

Double log in issue – I know one of the greatest desires of Club members is that we integrate the website login with the forums login. We’re still working on this and will keep you posted on our progress.

What’s On the Horizon for the SWPC Website?

  • Online registration for the 2013 SWPC Convention will be up and running soon.
  • We have a Short Wing Piper News page in the works where you can find info about the magazine
  • Members will be able to download issues of the Short Wing Piper News
  • We have an Aircraft Awards database in the works
  • We’ll be launching a Technical page where Members can access our vast collection of Short Wing specific technical documents
  • And more!
