Community Directory

How to use this page

This page is based on a special plugin which allows you to have a directory on your website. The directory can be used in a number of ways ranging form automatic to manual. I recommend using this manually and as a free resource to the community. There is some effort in setting this up, however the benefit is that this will become a resource that the community returns to when they are looking for something. This will increase the popularity of your site.

One method you could use is to have a separate form which people can fill in and then you approve it and populate the website with the submission. You will need to think about the terms of conditions of offering such a service, and what things you may wish to facilitate advertising and what you might not wish to advertise.

Obvious examples are the services in the community such as health, dental, veterinary, chemists could be classified together along with clubs for children as another group. Some thought needs to be given in how to organise this section so that it is easy to use and logical to find things.

The plugin is a utility which is outside of the template. There is limited scope in what I can add/ remove from it. You need to decide whether adding such a feature to your site meets the requirements of having a directory on your website or whether a simple list might be better even if it is not interactive.

Example sites where this plugin is in use are: Prestwood Village Association and Burnham Sports and Activities
