Welcome back to some of the former pages that has not been available for the past few months... [Many of them now need to be updated also.]
[NOTICE: *** (see note at bottom of page)]
(If you are a new, or recent visitor, this is all new to you!) Some say it is too much information, or not the way we now should be going; others say it is OK. So here goes... A lot of it was notes to myself in how to do the editing, adding of pages, links, images, etc. And was info that I wanted to keep and save for future reference. And it might be of help to others. It might be of interest to you. But if it is too much, just ignore it and leave this page, or the page linked to from this one, if you want to. Thanks.
Some of it is vital -I believe, such as the "Gay Community
Links"; it is general & specific info of interest to many kinds of
people. It is difficult to keep up to-date, and website addresses change a
lot, or are no longer 'online'. If there are any major problems, let me,
Bernard, know, such as a link going to a wrong website; one time a
local church changed its web address to a new one, and a pornographic website
took over that old web address, so I had to delete that & find the correct new
web address... I didn't know about it for quite some time. We want all of our
links to other sites to be 100% 'family safe' for all
ages. And 'adult content', dating/sex, or related sites links are NOT
allowed on this website. Of course, since this is by its very nature a website
dealing with 'gay', 'GLBT' subjects such as churches, organizations, this site
may be banned by some 'Christian-right groups', etc. But that is their problem,
not ours. We are here to tell of the love of Jesus to everyone;
that is paramount. We have a special mission to reach out to the lost,
marginalized, outcasts, unwanted, rejected people of our area, which includes
'gays', and all 'GLBT' folks, teens as well as the elderly, who happen to
identify with us. We are here for all people.
This is a main Link page to other places in
Gay Community Links (This page is a very long one; I intend to break it up into smaller pages soon..
Also, it was part of the older website, so this page website 'links' may not
always take you to what is on the 'newer' website... Things need to re-worked a
lot; it is given "asis" for now... Some links also no longer work.)
Bible Study & Prayer
If YOU do not like this, if any of it offends you, please just
ignore it; some
folks DO like this, and want it for reference.]
Misc Website Editing Info
Editing Text input Dialog Window Boxes:
First, Write your info into a text spelling window to correct word spelling mistakes; then copy & paste the info back into a text input dialog box you are working on. Spell Checking does NOT work in Dialog Windows input boxes. (Turn Spell Checking ON for website editing of pages...) For example, the Hyperlink Properties 'ScreenTip' input text box...
(The following website was up-to-date when Dawn first made that site, but is not current anymore; it is not being maintained anymore... it's here just for reference.)
(I want to thank Dawn Hendrix for putting her efforts into making that website for us to see how the former church website could look like; some I guess, mistakenly thought it was going to be our 'new website'. To me, making & maintaining our church website for the past 7 years, her site was interesting & gave me new ideas as to how some people wanted our site to look like. I thank her for the inspiration she provided, but it was only after the fact. I used her site as a kind of template on which I redid our present website a little.
Joomla! Some Info, & Joomla!-Built Websites Links
Some "Joomla!" stuff, a CMS -Content Management System, that I'm learning, in order to re-do the church website in that system; I want to use both Joomla! & regular HTML5 & CSS3 to finally make this site into something much more useful for you all to use.
Now, with learning Joomla! & all, I want to kind of combine what was in the old with the new so as to be a more complete site, with new added things soon to be available also. These last few months has seen a very lean site with much of the former info not showing for visitors to our site. That is gradually going to change as I get time & more know-how.)
Also, the main reason for learning & using Joomla! is for other visitors to the church website to be able to edit parts of the website; this will help me a great deal, & provide new content to the site. Certain trusted people will be granted special permissions to write, edit & publish articles that they feel need to be seen by visitors to our church website. And to certain others for helping in maintaining current correct information. As the site progresses, I will put in links to how it looks at that present moment in time. So stay tuned for a finer website. Bernard Wotton.
(Figure out a way to easily copy items from the Mac to the PC laptops, that is, text only, formatted or not... Copy/paste from Mac side to Windows7 boot camp; then copy to a Flash stick drive in Mac USB port. Then put that Flash drive into my old PC laptop to copy to its hard drive... File format on the Mac will be... which Windows can also read... The reason why I'm still using the old PC laptop is because that is the only computer that I'm able to really update our church website with so far... Microsoft Expression Web 4 FTP/copies files to the website, & can copy from the website to my hard drive. My Mac Book Pro 17 and Windows7 Boot Camp on it does NOT yet have a program that can do both at the same time in one program. I have Joomla! installed OK on the Mac laptop, but have not yet learned how to use it to edit the full website yet... Which is why I still use my old slow PC laptop to update our church website the old way of using Expression Web.., Hopefully that will change in the near future!)
