April 2014 Basic Website Use

 

We recently launched a new online presence and in this column we would like to inform you of its features and how to use it.

 

The cornerstone is our new website at www.eatonsneck.org.  Here you will find news and information useful to the Eaton’s Neck community. 

 

On the home page, below the association logo, you should find the top level menu of what is available on the site.  If you move your mouse across the menu items, drop-down sub-menus will appear giving you selections that you can click on to take you to different areas.  Currently you’ll find

·        Events – A calendar where you can find out what is happening on The Neck.  For you convenience the local trash and recycling schedule is on the calendar

·        POENB – membership form, meeting agenda, by-laws, contact info and more to do with the association

·        Beaches – all about our beaches, including links to information about beach and shell fishing restrictions

·        Changing Tides – The last six months of the Changing Tides are available for viewing or downloading.  If anyone has a need for an older issue, contact us and we will try to accommodate you with a link in an email.

·        Useful Links – Links to web sites of local relevance (Eaton’s Neck FD, Asharoken, Town of Huntington, Northport Patch) along with links to sites for tide and fishing information

 

Below the menu is slideshows of our wonderful community.  Below those would be current items of importance to the community.  Toward the bottom of the home page is a gadget showing the current weather conditions that you can click on and get more detail. 

 

Also you’ll find a link to our Facebook Group – Eaton’s Neck News.  I encourage all to take advantage of this and join the group which can be vital in keeping everyone informed of current and urgent news on The Neck.  Look in next month’s Changing Tides for more info on our Facebook Group.

 

We expect to be adding sections and info to the web site so check back often.  If you have any questions or problems with its use, please contact us.  We need to hear what we are doing right along with what we are doing wrong.  To contact us about the web site you can click on the Contact Webmaster link on the bottom of our site or just email webmaster@eatonsneck.org.
