Allowing Non-Members to Log-In

Postby jeffdancer-p40 » Sat Feb 10, 2007 2:59 pm

I am a student in a BYU singles ward. The Bishop is reluctant to use the ward web site, because we have about eight non-members in the ward. He does not want to exclude anyone from hearing about announcements or activities in the ward.

Is there a way to allow theses individuals to be part of the ward web site, not just the home page?

Allowing transient members to log-in

We often have transient members who come to our ward for 5-6 weeks but don't want their records transferred. It would be nice to give them temporary access to the ward website as well. These accounts (transient member and non-member) could be approved by the ward website administrator.

Ward Web Site

The only thing I can see on a Ward Web site that needs password protection is member information. If non-members what to know about a local ward, I think it would be great.

Just password protect the ward list.

The stake website admin can do that. But they still have to be members.

I think you also want to restrict access to information about activities scheduled in the calendar. The last thing the Church wants is for it's websites to become an easy place for child predators, stalkers, and the like to be able to lurk around activities where their victims will be.

That's just the world we live in. I'd rather not have activities/etc. posted to the whole world for that exact purpose. I don't want my children targeted. I guess if there were a way to post adult activites . . . . . . but at the sametime, there is alway going to be some members that may have a stalker or x-husband/wife that they are trying to hide/avoid.

It's probably best to keep that stuff secure.
