or “where to find things on our website”
This is obviously the main page of the site, with links to all the other pages. It contains the latest News items, Events for the next few days, and the R&M Noticeboard. On the Right Hand Side of the screen there are some permanent links to useful pages like the weather, the local map, the latest County Councillor’s report etc. Please let us know if you think some of these links ought to be changed.
Along the top of the screen (which is repeated throughout the site) there is a blue bar which will take you straight to some important areas (such as Events), so you do not need to come back to the Home Page each time. And, at the very top, there is a search box (which is a Google-based search allowing you to find incidences of any word or phrase across the whole site) and a ‘sign in’ button (which allows you to be a registered user on the site – see below).
Note that, at the very bottom of the page there is a link to our legal disclaimer. If you haven’t read it, please do so.
Registering on the site
We’ve written separately on Why should I register. Note that, once registered, you can send and receive messages from other site users without disclosing your own email address. To see these facilities, just click on your username at the top of the page once you have registered.
Unfortunately we are no longer able to provide a public Forum on this site and this feature has been permanently suspended
Our picture gallery is also on the blue top bar and contains lots of pictures about Radyr & Morganstown, both historic and current. It is really worth exploring but we have to admit that currently it is not set up in the best way. Unfortunately, we cannot change that just at the moment but we intend to do so in the near future. If you have more photos of the history of Radyr & Morganstown then please get in touch as we are keen to expand our archives through our project Radyr Recorded.
The Directory is also be accessed from the top bar and is the link to all the registered organisations and businesses in Radyr & Morganstown. To make it easier to find the entry you want, they have been sorted into groups. If you cannot find the organisation or business that you want, use the Search button on the main Directory page, which only looks through the Directory pages.
Getting the best from the site
To make the site more useful and interesting for all, we welcome participation from anyone in the community. We would particularly like more News Items and we want to ensure that as many events as possible are suitably listed in the Events Diary. News Items have to be put on the site by the central team (just send the material to us) but you can put diary entries in yourself once you are registered on the site. And, if you are responsible for one of the many organisations or businesses in Radyr & Morganstown, then please ensure your details are up to date. Local organisations (but not businesses) can have their own webpage (many do) as well as a listing in the Directory with the ability to edit their pages themselves.
Note that the site is looked after by moderators who will take action if anything illegal or distasteful is put on the site. There is a bit more about that in our disclaimer. If we do miss something that you think requires attention, or you spot it before we can get to it, then please let us know – Moderators@radyr.org.uk
The R&M Association also maintains a Facebook page ‘Radyr & Morganstown Hub’. Feel free to use that to promote events and initiate community discussion. At present, there is no automatic linkage between the sites, so please send content for our Social Media sites to firstname.lastname@example.org and any potential News or Noticeboard stories to email@example.com.
Can we just repeat that this site is ‘work in progress’ and we want it to be useful! Please tell us if something is missing or is wrong. And, indeed, constructive feedback to the Web Team is welcome at any time – just send us an email.
