The latest feature in the development of the U3A Newark Ukulele web site is a step further forward to a genuinely interactive web site.
You can now opt in to having email notifications sent to you to inform you of additions to the play list, to any amendments to songs on the playlist, or to the addition of any comments on the comment page.

To add your email address to the mail list you:-

1. Log on using the password you were issued.
2. Click on ‘NOTIFY’ on the menu on the left hand side of the page.
3. Input your email twice ( This always seems tedious but it is the most effective way to avoid submitting a typing error ).

Now you have been added to the mailing list.  To have your email removed from the mailing list you just do the same thing again.

Think nothing of it, son!

At the moment there's only you and me on the mailing list, so I think it's going to be somewhat quiet!

Hi Andy would it be possible to scan songs to the list, this could save having to re-type existing material. Just a suggestion!

Yes, Tony, if only!  The programing required to do that would be way out of my league.  What I do is scan the copy using my scanner and create a tif file.  This is a file that more or less copies the scan in high contrast black and white. Then I load that file into Microsoft Office Document Imaging program. I suspect you didn't know you had this, but you will find it tucked away in your Program Files directory.  It's an unsung gem in the Microsoft Office Suite.  With this you can scan the file and download it as a Word file.  After that you can copy and paste into the 'ADD A SONG' page on this website.

Latest improvement.  On song pages there are links at the foot of the page that will allow you to dispense with chords diagrams, or if you want, select large print for the page. I programmed the song pages so the song would appear on a single sheet of paper, and most of the songs do that.  However, if you select large print the song may well cover two or more pages when you print them out.  That's a matter for you.

To all my critics and detractors,

I have just this moment created a link to a You Tube clip of John Denver performing Take Me Back Country Roads.

I've also tidied up the song sheet if you want to download it!

LATEST DEVELOPMENT.

When you log on you will notice a new link in the menu which is labelled ‘ADMIN’.

Using this link you can 1. Edit the gag at the top of the webpage, 2 add a cartoon, 3 add a YouTube video clip to the CLIPS page, 4 add a link to the LINKS page, or 5 if you made a complete Horlicks of it all you can reset all the data files from the latest backup.

The whole webpage backs itself up first thing in the morning.

All this has been done so I can completely relinquish responsibility for this webpage, and hand it all over to the control of members of the group.  Please feel free to amend as you deem fit, it is after all your website, and your resource.

It is a brave man that hands over the control of a website to a bunch of geriatric ukulele players ;)

Thanks Jeff,

No, there haven't been any changes this time.  I've been trying to iron out one or two tiresome little glitches on the software, and this couldn't be done without changing some date stamps.

Sorry for any confusion.
