Website Areas

The new website has three areas – the Main section, the Gallery and the Forums

  • The Main section contains updates about the Squadron and the Association and links to stories, Squadron history and previous newsletters
  • In the Gallery are all the photographs, divided into albums – you can view the photographs, comment on them, run a slideshow, and even upload your own photographs
  • The Forums are the place to leave questions and reply to other members’ queries

Logging In

Usernames and Passwords

  • If you do not have a username and password, go to the Register page and complete the form. A username and  password will be emailed to you by the webmaster (please be patient – he’s not always at the computer!)
  • If you have forgotten your password, click on the “Lost your password?” link on the Login screen, fill in your username and e-mail address, and your password will be e-mailed to you
  • If you’ve forgotten your username you can use the form on the Contact FourFax page and the webmaster will send you a reminder
  • If you’ve forgotten your e-mail address…

Your Profile

  • Once you’ve logged in you’ll be taken to a Dashboard screen
  • Here, by selecting Profile, you can amend your personal details, such as your e-mail address and password, and write posts for submission to the website
  • New posts will not be published until the webmaster has had an opportunity to review them

The Gallery

  • The Gallery is organised into albums, such as “Harrier GR7”, “Hunter Days”, and “1912-39”
  • An album is recognisable by the spiral ring binder in the left-hand side
  • Clicking on an album shows you the photographs in that album
  • Underneath each album and photograph is an “action” menu – here you can choose to leave a comment, run a slideshow, and in the Members’ Upload album, upload your own photographs
  • If you don’t see an “action” menu it’s because you haven’t logged into the website – return to the Main section and log in

Scanning Photographs

  • Scan at a resolution of no more than 150 dpi
  • Scale the pictures to something like 800 x 600 or 1024 x 768 pixels
  • Save them in JPEG format with a .jpg extension
  • Upload to the Gallery (see below), or e-mail to the webmaster (see Contact FourFax page)
  • Remember to include details such as the photographer’s name, where the pictures were taken, who’s in them etc.

Uploading Photographs to the Gallery



  • Navigate to the Gallery
  • Find the “Members’ Uploads” album (the first one)
  • Click on “album actions” then “add items”, then “From Web Browser”
  • Select the files you want to upload and finally scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on “Add Items”
  • The Forums

    • To return to the main Fourfax page from the Forums, click on the Return to FourFax website link at the bottom of the page

    Website Doesn’t Look Right?

    • You’re probably using Internet Explorer as your browser. It isn’t very standard nowadays and many sites do not display in IE the way their designers intended
    • The best thing to do is download FireFox
    • It’s a great browser, it’s a free download and it’s available for Mac and PC
