Need a little help using the site

Tabs at the top of every page

At the very top of each page we have place a number of useful page links and our logo. The page links are:

  • Home which takes you back to the first page of our site
  • About has a brief history, description of our philosophy and our reasons for creating this site
  • Membership/Members area. Some of the buttons change depending on whether you are logged in or not. When you are not logged in this button takes you to the form to sign up as a member. When you are logged in it takes you to the members area.
  • Login/Logout. Once you have signed up as a member you can login to the site. Once logged in the button changes to a logout button. Clicking the logout button takes you back to the login screen.

Tips and Tricks

Exhibitors

Before contacting an organiser, make sure you have added your exhibitor listing. A link to your listing will be sent to the organiser, giving them a lot more information and you only have to do the work once.

  1. Log in
  2. Click on the "promote your craft" link
  3. Complete the form and submit
  4. Add a picture to compliment your listing

Build your list of confirmed events

Once you have confirmed with an organiser that you have a table at a particular event, you will want to let the world know about it. Example

It is easy to build your list, so that everyone visiting either the event page or your listing can see and print the details.

  1. Log in
  2. Have you already contacted the organiser about the event, via the site?
    1. Yes. Go to either your exhibitor listing or the event you have contacted them about and click the confirm button next to your details.
    2. No. Go to the event you have a confirmed place at, send the organiser a quick message, letting them know that you are confirming your attendance on the site. Then click on the confirm button on the event page.
    3. If an event you are attending is not listed on the site, contact the organiser for them to join as a member to promote the event, so that you can complete your list.
  • Benefits
    • If you have a picture in your listing, it will be displayed on the event page.
    • A link to your listing will be added to the event page
    • People visiting your exhibitor listing will see details of the events you are attending. You can print your page including your list of future event, to hand out at your next event (automatically updated).
