The main purpose of the NoBBC website is to provide a place where non-members can be directed to learn about the club. The website is also a resource for members to check on upcoming drives, and to share photos and notes with other members. A Facebook Group page has been set up for that, but not everyone is interested in being on Facebook.
The date of the next NoBBC club drive is always displayed on the home page, in case you ever need that information. To find out more about the event, such as time or location, click the notice. This is probably the most useful feature of the website, and you don't need to be signed in to use it.
The content displayed on each page is visible to everyone, but only signed-in members can add new content, or edit content they added previously. You can sign in on the home page, or click the Members tab and sign in there. You will remain signed in for 72 hours after you last visited the site, so if you visit the site every day or two you shouldn't ever need to sign in.
Add content (events, notices, photos, etc.) by clicking the blue "+" button in the upper left corner of the appropriate page. Enter the information requested and then click the Add button at the bottom of the page. If you don't see a blue "+" button in the upper left corner of the page, you are not signed in.
Change content that you added previously by clicking the Edit button next to the content. Make any necessary changes, and then click the Save Changes button. Note that you will only see Edit buttons next to content that you created.
Delete content that you added previously by clicking the "X" button in the upper right-hand corner of the content box. Click the OK button when asked to confirm. Note that you will only see "X" buttons next to content that you created.
Note also that when deleting an event, rather than an "X" you will see a button labeled "Cancel Event". This is appropriate wording for deleting an event, but it's also the wording on the button in the delete confirmation window that you want to click when you decide not to cancel the event after all. This can be confusing. Unfortunately the wording is standard in all major browsers. The message in the delete confirmation window should explain which button to click.
Please use appropriate discretion when adding content, keeping in mind our targeted G or PG audience. Add non-NoBBC events to the calendar only if they're at least peripherally related to British cars and are open to the public. Vintage races, events from other British marque clubs, or classic car shows, for example, would all qualify.
There is no mobile version of the website, and actually mobile versions are hardly needed anymore on modern phones. Use the site on your mobile device as you would on your regular computer or notebook, but note that individual login information is maintained on each device, so if you're signed in on your notebook, you won't necessarily be signed in on your phone, and vice versa.
We are always happy to entertain ideas for new features or changes to the NoBBC website. Bring it up at a club drive, send an email to email@example.com, or post your idea on the notices board. Note that not all changes can be accommodated. Our resources are limited to a single part-time developer who only works two nights a week except when there's a game on.
