If you have registered as a member on the weblog, you should always make sure that you are logged in. If you are not logged in, you will not have access to all the functionality of the weblog. The weblog is designed to keep you logged in for a period of one month from the time of your last visit, provided you don’t log out when you end your session. If you haven’t visited the weblog for a while, you will have to log in again using your user name and password.

To log into the weblog, enter your username and password in the “Login” panel on the right hand side about half way down the page. The “Username” and “Password” are case sensitive, so make sure you don’t have “Caps Lock” on. Click the “Log In” button. Scroll down to the login panel afterwards to ensure that your login was successful. If your login was not successful, you will get an error message and the “Username” & “Password” fields will be blank. Please try again.

Registering as a member
If you would like to register as a site member, click on the “Register as a site member” link in the “Login” panel. You will be redirected to the “Create Member Account” page. After filling in your details, click the “Create Account” button. If your account is created successfully, you will see a “Thank you” message and you will be sent an activation link by email. You must activate your account within 2 days, otherwise the link will expire and your account won’t be created. Once you have activated your account, you can log in and access the admin panel. Please note that you will only be able to edit your profile and add comments at this point. To post articles on the weblog, you need to be added to the “Weblog Team” by the “Site Administrator”. You can request to be added to the team, by clicking here.

Forgot your Password?
If you can’t remember your password, you can reset it by clicking on the “Forgot your password” link in the “Login” panel. You will be asked to enter your user name and your email address. If you can’t remember your user name, please email the “Site Administrator”. Click “Send Activation Link”. You will receive an activation link by email (if you don’t see the email, check your junk email folder). Clicking on this link will take you to the “Re-activate Account” page where you can choose a new password.
