How to Use this Site

If you are new to the website please read this page as it will answer all of your questions on how to get a password, make a profile and how to use the website.

This website was created at www.classcreator.com which supports creation of high school or college alumni websites.  The “class creator” systems activity is in the process of modifying the website creation software to support other website applications in addition to the initially intended class alumni sites. 

While the website functionally supports the needs of the Association, you will note that there are several items that are not relevant to the Association requirements, i.e. Last or Maiden Name, Married Name, and birthday fields in the Contact page.  Please make sure that your last name is in the Last or Maiden Name space followed by your unit number.  Do not input your name in the Married Name space. 

This site is maintained by James Knaus (Association President).

You have the option of password protecting your personal profile which blocks the general public and search engines from accessing your profile details.  Once you create a profile, you will also be able to see the profiles of other homeowners and interact with them. 

Your address and phone number can't be seen by the other homeowners unless you grant permission on your profile. When someone clicks on your name, all they will see of your contact information is your city and state and whatever information about yourself you choose to put on your web page. Your email address cannot be viewed, although an email can be sent to you using the contact box at the bottom of your profile page. However, if you send a message to someone through their profile, they will see your email address so that they can respond.


You will need to make your individual profile in order to access any password protected pages on the site.  Start by clicking on the Condo Owners link at the top of the home page. This will take you to a page with all condo owner names, including yours. Find your name and click on it.  Follow the prompts to create your profile.  Please input the first names you wish to be seen on the site.  In the last name field, please make sure that your unit number follows your name.

The password that you enter during this process will be used as your login password. You can personalize your page with Myrtle Beach memories, photos and even video.

If you click "Remember Me" when you log in, you will not need to log in next time you go to the site. Note there is a password retrieval feature to click on: "Forgot Password?" in case you need to log in sometime and can't remember your password; the password will be sent to your email inbox. You can log in from computers other than your home computer but you will need to enter your password.

If you cannot find your name on the
Condo Owners page, please contact us to have your name added. Use the Contact Us link.

If you change your email address, snail mail address, or phone number, please update those in your profile so when we download a hard copy we will have your correct information. You do not need to email us when you change your email or snail mail address.

 

Our goal is to provide information to you in a more expeditious manner and provide the opportunity to have one place to obtain information that you might need.

COPY & PASTE MADE EASY

COPY and PASTE will allow you to take printed material from one source and place it in another. In other words, if you find a particularly interesting paragraph or article you wish to send to a classmate, you can "copy" the text and "paste" it into an email.

To COPY: 

  1. Place your cursor at the beginning of the text and hold down the left mouse button as you guide the cursor over the desired text. The text will be highlighted with a background color, usually blue. (If you find that the information you desire to copy does not highlight, this means the material can not be copied.)
  2. When you reach the end of the material you wish to copy, release the right mouse button.
  3. Hold down the CONTROL key and press the key "V." The information will move from the unseen clipboard to your message.

To PASTE: 

  1. Place your cursor on the page where you wish your text to appear and click the right mouse button once.
  2. Hold down the CONTROL key and press the key "V." The information will move from the unseen clipboard to your chosen page.

Many pictures can be copied in the same manner, but please note that you can NOT use this method to transfer photos to our web site.


MEMBER FUNCTIONS:

On the left side of the web site are links to the things you can do when you are logged into the site. An explanation of each follows:

MEMBER FUNCTIONS: CHECK MESSAGES

This feature lists all the emails you have received (IN BOX) as well as those you have sent (OUT BOX) through this web site. Your messages will remain in their respective boxes until you delete them.

A KEY at the top of both the IN BOX and OUT BOX shows symbols representing the status of an email. You will find one of these symbols to the left of each email listed.

Each listed email shows: (1). A box to check, (2). Its status; (3). Either who sent it to you (IN BOX) or who you sent it to (OUT BOX), (4). Subject and date of email, and (5). A red "X."

In both the IN BOX and OUT BOX settings, clicking on sender's name brings up that person's profile page and clicking on the subject brings up the actual email.

Clicking inside the box on the far left or on the red "X" on the far right, will turn the background red. This means that the email can be deleted by choosing the tab at the bottom of the page that says DELETE CHECKED THREAD.


MEMBER FUNCTIONS: EDIT CONTACT INFO

Choosing this feature will allow you to view all of the contact information you entered into your contact information page. You can change your contact info anytime it is necessary.
