Ongoing SME62.ORG Website Maintenance and Enhancements 
FeedBack ( 1) From Ken Gorman: As previously committed, I will provide ongoing support of this website indefinitely into the future, for as long as the gang finds the site has value and it gets used. Originally, the plan was that my support would be to basically maintain the integrity of the website, with a volunteer "Members Admin" supporting members' requests and a volunteer "Content Admin" posting new content. Generally there was not an expectation that significant new features would be added.

Members Admin. First, I am pleased to announce Nancy Potter has offered to be Members Admin. If you need help regarding your profile, for example, she will be there for you. You will contact her by going to the Contact Us page, entering your message, and clicking a soon-to-be-added Members Admin button. Nancy has been terrific in helping test the website and providing support for playing the "In Memoriam" movie at the reunion. Naturally I will help Nancy get started and provide help to her along the way if/when needed.

Content Admin. I believe for the website to be an ongoing success that I should continue the role of Content Admin rather than solicit the help of a volunteer. I think this will help assure consistency of information across the site.

Moreover, I expect there will be requests to add photos to the photo gallery, perhaps videos to a TBD video gallery, requests to post new events, and respond to the inevitable requests for new features (additional photos or video in one's profile?) and perhaps add pages to the site. So I am expanding support to include improvements and new features. Your suggestions for improvements will be invaluable to me. Of course, I will probably have to be selective based on the time it will take to implement new features and prioritize improvements based on the value to all of you.

Whereas the volunteer activities for the reunion have come to a close, website maintenance and enhancements will continue for years. If you feel so inclined to contribute a few bucks to support the website, it will be much appreciated. To do so, click: SME62 Website Support Fund. A PayPal window with the title "Keligo" at the top will open that provides the ability to pay by credit card without requiring you to have a PayPal account.

As a thank you to those who do elect to contribute, I will provide a password to a blog I will create that will provide tips and explanations from time to time about a range of internet topics, sort of an "Internet 101" blog. It will be geared to those who have very little, if any, background in using an online computer. You will be able to suggest topics. And I will attempt to answer questions you might have.

Publish This Feed

SME62 Class News

FOR WEBSITE PUBLISHERS
You can publish this feed in two ways. (1) Simply by installing a link to this feed on your website, or (2) by syndicating (embedding) a portion of the the actual feed content on your website.


(1) Linking to This NewsPage

The following link for this NewsPage can be used to form an anchor text link for your website:

http://www.enfeedia.com/sme62/classnews.php

Alternatively, you can install an RSS NewsPage icon enfeedia news feed reader on your website using this link:

<a href="http://www.enfeedia.com/see/sme62/classnews.php"><img src="http://www.enfeedia.com/enfeedia_01.gif" border="0"></a>


(2) Syndicating This Feed Using Enfeedia's 'Super Simple Syndication'

Syndication of RSS feeds simply means that the feed content or portion thereof is embedded on one or more websites (RSS = Really Simple Syndication).

If your website server supports PHP -- and virtually all of them do -- you can display the contents of this feed directly on your website. You select how many of the most recent items and the length of the items to display.

You implement this by simply inserting either of the two following PHP code snippets on your website in a region where you've specified php code to be located. The first arranges items in a vertical column whereas the second in a horizontal row. (Be sure to take into account your webpage width when using the row orientation).

Both snippets provide a basic presentation of the most recent three items showing a maximum of approximately 300 characters, inheriting colors and style from the page syndicating the feed. You can change the number of items displayed by changing the NI parameter in the snippet. Similarly, you can change the length of items displayed by changing the LI parameter.

Vertical Presentation of Items:

file_get_contents('http://www.enfeedia.com/SOS.php?T=BB&P=col&AN=sme62&FN=classnews&NI=3&LI=300');

Horizontal Presentation of Items:

file_get_contents('http://www.enfeedia.com/SOS.php?T=BB&P=row&AN=sme62&FN=classnews&NI=3&LI=300');

The above snippets use Enfeedia's "Super Simple Syndication" eliminating the need to upload any scripts to syndicate feeds. You can explore syndication methods by going to the Enfeedia home page and selecting the "Promote/Syndicate" menu item. You will learn how to fully customize the presentation of the feed on your website. For this feed, use account name sme62 and then select feed classnews.
