User Management

AlbanyWeb's simple interface for managing users.

For websites that represent a community, or which have private content only visible to Members, we can offer an easy User Management system.  This allows the website editor to add new users, approve user registrations or block users, all through a simple user interface.  Like all our login processes, no one sees the password except the person using it.  Some of our website packages, such as our COST Action websites, have user management built in.

Nano2Clinic - COST Action MP17140

Nano2Clinic home page

Cancer Nanomedicine is another COST Action website.  For this website, the researchers were anxious to get online very quickly, and so we broke this project into three phases:

  • A simple, four-page brochure website, which contained the regulatory information required of COST Actions.
  • The public-facing parts of the website, including the final design, menu structure, news and events content types.  At this point, the customer had access to create new content and update the site.
  • The private, members only features, which

Yoga Scotland

Yoga Scotland home page

Yoga Scotland is the official governing body for yoga in Scotland, offering class listings, training and certification for yoga instructors, as well as other activities for people interested in learning more about yoga.  Over the years, their original Wordpress website became less fit for purpose and harder to maintain, and they lacked the expertise to manage their own hosting effectively.

AlbanyWeb offered a package to update their website, incorporating an improved version of our Threads of Yoga class search...

Rugby Family History Group

Rugby Family History sample parish listing

The Rugby Family History group is a voluntary genealogy organisation, whose members specialise in the family histories of the Rugby area.  Their existing website needed a fundamental software upgrade, and they felt it was no longer a job for a volunteer.  AlbanyWeb did a website conversion from Joomla and created extra functions to help them more easily operate as a society.

Within the limited budget, AlbanyWeb focused on customised page templates to help organise and display the results of research...

Weedon Music

Weedon Music online music store home page

Penny Weedon is an independent musician, composer and teacher, and wanted a website where she could sell her recordings and sheet music directly to the public.  She also has developed music courses for the visually impaired which are free to download.

The e-commerce website required a complex product offering - the online purchase of individual tracks, and also the ability to purchase an entire album with one click.  Sample audio is available for each track, and there is ample space...

MouseAGE - COST Action BM1402

MouseAGE COST Action website by AlbanyWeb

The MouseAGE website details the work of an EU COST Action, examining mouse models in the use of examing age and age-related disease.  Like all COST Actions, MouseAGE represents a diverse community of scientists from many countries, and they needed a flexible public-facing website with some networking options for members of the network.

We started with our standard COST Action website package, which offered most of what MouseAGE required, including automated listings for events and news items.  However, we...

HERALD - COST Action MP1402

Page showing interlinked content on COST Action working group

We created this website in accordance with the specifications for this Europoean COST Action, a networking project in atomic layer deposition research in Europe.  Starting with our basic COST Action package, we created a fully customised website with many extra features and custom content, including:

  • Special forms and templates to describe collaborations and publications, which could then be easily linked to other pieces of content such as Working Groups.
  • A customised member profile allowing easy and automated linkage to all

London Self-Directed Support Forum

The London Self-Directed Support Forum website by AlbanyWeb.

The London Self-Directed Support Forum is an association of social care professionals and is dedicated to sharing best practice within the field.  The website forms part of their strategy to increase communication and participation amongst members, as well as to increase membership and raise awareness about social care issues. 

The Forum is run by a committee and therefore required a website that projected their aims very clearly, but also was extremely easy to update.  AlbanyWeb simplified the image uploading options...

Managing user accounts

If you have added certain features to your site, then users of your website may be able to log in.  For example, they may need to log in to add comments to your blog, or to view private content.

Adding new users

There are two methods for adding users, with slightly difference pros and cons.  Each site will normally have just one method.  If you are not sure, then try the instructions for one method, and you will soon find out if it's not present.  If you aren't sure, please ask us for help.
