Ward Website Administrator

Is the ward website administrator a calling or just an access level? I just went through the leadership directories of each unit in my stake and no-one has a website administrator.

It's an actual standard calling. Its actual title is "Website Administrator" and appears in the "Other Callings" section of the Directory under "Ward Leaders."

It's a purely optional calling -- a ward clerk or executive secretary can perform all the same functions, so some wards choose to just have one or both of those brothers perform those functions. But if you want someone else to help with administering the Calendar or Directory (particularly the photos) or Newsletter or Lesson Schedules, then a ward can share the load by calling someone to be the Website Administrator (and that calling can be given to a sister, unlike the other callings that grant default administrator permissions). In my stake about half the wards have someone in that position.

It's an interesting situation in that it is a standard calling, but i don't think it appears anyhere in the Handbook. Normally, callings have to be mentioned in the Handbook to get on the list as a standard.

One of these days the LDS apps and LDS.org tools will get a shoutout in the Handbook.
