First things first, your devices will display the website differently depending on screen size, the software is reactive to the type of device you are using. It will also react differently on touch screen & cursor driven devices.
At the top of every page you will find the Navigation tabs, these are derived from the idea of folders in a file-cabinet, they give an indication of what content can be found on a website page, the page you are currently using will be underlined.
Most of you will visit the site to find out about our current and future Rally Programme and to book your rallies for the coming year.
When you visit the The Calendar Pages you will find a graphical representation the rally dates on an Annual Calendar. The calendars are now directly from the database managed by the Programme Secretary and will always be up to date.
If you are using a small screen device all the calendar may not be visible. You can drag the calendar around in the window with your finger on touch screen devices, zooming in and out can be achieved by rolling the mouse wheel or using “pinch” or “spread” gesture with your fingers on touch screen.
For touch screen device just put your finger on the rally name.
At the top of the page is a scrollling banner which indicates the status of each rally, it pauses if you put your mouse pointer over it and you can scroll through by clicking on the grey buttons.
The legend below it indicates the status of each rally.
The rally name is a link to that rallies dedicated page.
This is what a typical Rally Page looks like.
The icons are used consistently throughout the site and always have the same function.
This links to a map of all rally location zoomed in to that particular rally. If you zoom out you will see all the rallies on that map.
This links to the website of the caravan site at which the rally is held. If the site has no website the background of the icon will be red, there will be no link.
This links to details of the programme offered by the Rally Team. At the beginning of the year this may be only a provisional programme.
Programme Options Form Icon
Some Rally Marshals and members prefer to use a printable Programme Options Form rather than an online system, these forms can be downloaded with this icon. If no form is available the background of the icon will be red, there will be no link
Online Programme Options Form Icon
After Rally Release Date (usually 1st Dec.) This Icon links to a detailed online Programme Booking Form, which contains any programme costs i.e. site fees, excursions and any dining out opportunities. The form automatically generates the cost of the choices you make. When you submit this completed form a copy of your choices will be emailed to you and the Booking Officer. You can alter all your choices up until you click on the “SUBMIT” button. Events on the programme are not compulsory, you may choose to partake in as many events as wish. If you want to revise your choices after submitting the form you may complete it with different choices and re-submit, the RM will use your lastest submission.
Apply Now Icon
This leads you to the rally application page on the Membership System. You will only need to tick a few boxes confirming who will be attending and on what dates, all the other details are held on the system and your application will be sent automatically to the Booking Officer, who will then send you confirmation of your acceptance on the rally. YOU MUST USE THIS ICON TO APPLY TO JOIN THE RALLY. When your application is ACCEPTED you may then complete the Options Form.
Waiting List Icon
The Application Icon changes to Waiting List when the rally is fully booked, you can still make an application but you will be on a list of applicants who will be contacted, in case a place becomes available. Please let the Rally Marshal know if you decide to withdraw from the list.
