Please follow this written tutorial to learn how to add files to the NACAT Shared File Repository. A video screencast tutorial will be available soon.
When on NACAT.ORG go to the “Resources” menu item in the main menu. You may click on it and then click on “Shared File Repository” in the left menu or you may click on the drop down “Shared File Repository” menu item that appears when you initially hovered over “Resources” in the main menu. The direct url to the Shared File Repository is: http://www.nacat.org/index.php?option=com_remository&Itemid=361
When one visits the repository page, a list of categories and folders/files is visible. This represents the available categories into which content can be placed. Most categories have subfolders.
The easiest way to share content is to choose into which category and subfolder the content will go. Click on the category and any required subfolder…a person will see a list of content already submitted and published to that respective folder. At the bottom right of the page, click the “Submit a File to Share” link and icon. This will open the upload form for that folder.
The upload form is very straightforward. If you need to upload multiple files, click “Click Here If You Need To Add Multiple Files”, otherwise proceed as follows.
Now that NACAT.COM has successfully undergone its transformation it is time to let the members know how to best take advantage of the site. As you may have already noticed, if you have spent some time perousing the site, some features a for "members only" while many are available for the general public. Features that are member only require that the member be logged into the site. Such features include access to the 2007 NACAT NEWS, posting capacity on the discussion forum, and various other tasks---so, please log-in each time you visit for the best results.
To aid in the process, please see the following:
How do I log into the site? A great question that I am certain all will have initially. Current members have been pre-registered into the system and will have a login ID comprised of their first initial and last name. The password will be your registered NACAT zip code + "n" if in the US and the registered postal code if in Canada (in all caps).
For example, the fictional Mr. Skip A. Stone from Blackstone, VA who has a registered NACAT zip code of 23824 would use the following to log in:
If he resided in Canada, perhaps Edmonton, Alberta he would use the following:
Once you log in for the first time, please change your userid/password combo to something you feel entirely comfortable and secure having. Please also check your profile to ensure all information is accurate and, if you feel generous, complete any missing information. The link to edit your profile is found under the "Join Nacat" menu and is ONLY accessible after logging into the site.
Also, since the site is new, please note any errors or "bugs" you might encounter. I would appreciate any that are found being reported in the web thread in the discussion forum.
