At long last we have rolled out our updated website. Since last June, due to changes in the way credit cards are processed, our online ordering capability has not been functional. We were obliged to totally rebuild the website to make the online capability operational and integrated with our database. This has taken much longer than we expected, for which we offer our apologies. A big thanks to Jill Nienhiser, our webmaster, Yianni Papadopoulos at Confluence, John Langlois of Foggy Bottom Web Design and Kathy Kramer, our Office Manager, for their hard work and persistence during this difficult transition.
You can now use our online system to order materials, become a member, renew a current membership, update your profile and donate to the Foundation. Simply click on the links on the side navigation bar. If you have forgotten your user name and password, click on the log-in link provided and you can request this information.
NO LOG-IN NEEDED TO ACCESS THE SITE
We want to stress the fact that you do not need to log in to read any articles or other information on the site, or use the social networking pages. Logging in allows you to order, donate, become a member, renew an active membership and update your personal information.
SOCIAL NETWORK PAGES
The site includes our revamped social network, Butter Buddies, at community.westonaprice.org (there’s a link on the side menu of every page). Similar to Facebook, Butter Buddies users can create their own customized profile, upload photos, connect with other users as “Friends,” send direct messages to Friends, create and join groups, post to Friend or Group “walls,” and participate in discussions.
Individuals can control their privacy settings, restricting viewing of one’s information to only
friends, only site members, or the public. Use of Butter Buddies is free and optional to all members and nonmembers.
We encourage as many as possible to use these social network pages as every visit to the website boosts our website ratings.
LOCAL CHAPTER PAGES
Local Chapters can set up their own Chapter “Group” pages to provide basic chapter information and communicate with local chapter members and interested parties. Chapters will get a subdomain that redirects to their group page (viewable by anyone, whether in the social network or not), that they can provide as a website address (for example, alexandriava.westonaprice.org). This is an easy way for chapters to have their own “website.” Local Chapter Leaders, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org when you are ready to set up your Chapter Group page and subdomain. You may also designate a co-leader or other chapter member to be the administrator for your group page.
Ollowing this major transition, there may be a few broken links and some odd search results as the pages get re-indexed. These should resolve over a short period. If you are having trouble accessing an article, using the online capability or search engine, please let us know by emailing email@example.com.
LINKS TO WESTONAPRICE.ORG
If you have links to our website or specific articles on our website from your own website or blog, please check to make sure those links are working and update them as needed. Our website ratings depend on having as many working links to our website as possible.
Please check our online ordering page for new products including our colorful Healthy 4 Life Dietary Guidelines and Recipe Book, our Priceless Nutrition Information stickers and our new Breast Milk/Raw Milk brochure.
We have revised the look of the website by eliminating the green background on all content pages. Likewise, we have added new items on the home page. Please check the home page often as we will be posting new information frequently.
Again, thank you for your patience during this long and frustrating process. Our goal is to become the worlds most popular nutrition website, which the new website features will help us to accomplish.
Sally Fallon Morell, President
and the WAPF Staff.
