Club members -This short tutorial will help you to get started!  

First, a word about your personal information:

  • All member contact information (address, phone number, e-mail address) that is entered into this website will be kept confidential. Your personal information will never be sold. It will not be shared or distributed.
  • Member contact information is private; your street address, e-mail address, and phone number cannot be seen by club members. Each club member has the ability to limit the visibility of his or her profile to only fellow club members by clicking on the appropriate answer in the Profile Visibility section during profile setup. If you do not opt for privacy on this line your profile can be viewed by non members such as your friends or family, but also your profile will be fully indexable by major search engines.
  • Please note that if you do not want your name on this site it may be removed by contacting Paul Peters. However, you will only have access to the non-member areas of the site. The member only areas are accessed through your password.


Setting up your profile:

In order to access the pages that are password protected on this site, you must set up a profile by providing a minimum of your name, email address, and a password.

To set up your profile: locate the "Club Member Profiles" link (a submenu item of Club Member’s Corner) and locate your name and click on it. Follow the prompts to create your profile.

Private information like your email address, home address, and phone numbers will not be visible to fellow club members. We collect mailing addresses in the event that we may need to contact you by snail mail or phone. That information will never be given to other club members without your permission.

We encourage you to add a current picture to your profile as a master photo. This photo will be displayed in various areas around the site. It's also helpful to upload an additional "Now" photo, and a "Then" photo. Club members will enjoy seeing you!

If your name is not already on the site, but you were part of Beekeepers of the Northern Shenandoah, BONS, contact us and your name will be added.


If you change your email address, snail mail address, or phone number, please update your Contact Info so we have up to date information. That way you'll always be in the know about what your club is up to!


Choosing a password: Passwords do not need to be the high security style recommended for some sites. Choose something simple that you are certain you will remember. Clicking the "Remember Me" will allow you to bypass entering the password each time you visit, but eventually the "remember me" will fail (for instance when you get a new computer). Please make note of your password!

If you forget your password simply click on "forgot password". If you have several email accounts, and you don't remember the one you used to set-up your account, contact Paul Peters.

 Adding Photos and videos to your personal proflie page:

Adding current pictures is not a requirement to participate on the site, but it certainly is a nice way to get to know people a little better.

Click "Edit Profile" under the second vertical menu, MEMBER FUNCTIONS.

Roll your cursor over the Master Photo, Then, or Now photo silhouette.

Click "Select Photo" displayed in the upper right corner of photo, then click the "Upload a New Photo" button.

Select the desired photo from your hard drive. You will then be given an opportunity to crop the photo for a perfect fit.

Adding large "Profile Gallery Images" to your Profile:

Clicked "Edit Profile" under MEMBER FUNCTIONS.

Click the photo tab in the upper right corner of your Profile.

You will see any images previously uploaded here. Click the "Upload a New Photo" button to add more.

Click to select images you wish to display on your Profile. All images with a green check mark will display. Click again to not display, and the green check mark will disappear.

To add a caption under your images, roll over any image and select "Edit Details". Enter your caption and press save.

You can adjust the display order of your photos by simply dragging and dropping them into the positions of your choosing.


We sincerely hope that you will enjoy the new website, its ease of navigation, and its feature-packed options!
