Hi. I answered the questions and hit SUBMIT several times. Unsuccessful.
Lisa Schibler

will you be sending us this presentation
Vicki Ham, Governor-elect
31:16
Will this PP be on the FR website?
Carole Bennett, Novato
33:04
By “not link to the paper” do you mean PDF?
Lisa Schibler
41:08
can you recommend hosts
Bobbi Enderlin
44:17
We have Word Press on the Go Daddy host site. Easy to use.
Vicki Ham, Governor-elect
44:57
So many hosting sites can be overwhelming. How does one know which to pick?
Meredith Silberstein
45:00
I will always always always recommend WordPress over any of the other options, though it does have a learning curve. But you ultimately can do more and pay less for it.
Vicki Ham, Governor-elect

Is the domain name a one-time purchase or do you need to renew it annually?
Meredith Silberstein | SI Davis webmaster
49:38
I recommend using a registrar like NameCheap, because it tends to be a LOT cheaper than when you go through a host like GoDaddy or Wix.
Tess Albin-Smith

what about si-clubname
Meredith Silberstein | SI Davis webmaster
54:03
That's what my club does. Well, without the dash.
Bobbi Enderlin
55:34
the reason founder region has a dash in their name is because we couldn't get ownership of the original name.
Lisa Broulik

Is there a tutorial about how to include the donate button link on our websites?
Carole Bennett, Novato
01:01:40
WordPress is a serious problem when you want to find someone to take over doing the website after a couple of years. Try to pick one of the easiest to use possible!
Meredith Silberstein | SI Davis webmaster
01:02:24
The easiest way is to set up a PayPal account. If your club is listed on Candid, you can get a PayPal Giving Fund account that'll make it very easy. You just copy the code from PayPal's website
Lisa Broulik
01:02:42
Thanks!
Meredith Silberstein | SI Davis webmaster
01:02:57
^_~ Or you can hire someone like me who does WordPress websites for a living
Tess Albin-Smith
01:03:29
I've been doing code too long. But I'd be happy to hire out!
Meredith Silberstein | SI Davis webmaster
01:03:34
*waves* Support your fellow Soroptimists <3
Bobbi Enderlin
01:03:54
Our club has a webmaster that donates her time to us
Linda Comiskey
01:07:11
Can we get the color palette and the font information? Thanks!
Meredith Silberstein | SI Davis webmaster
01:08:18
https://soroptimist.imgix.net/05-for-members/recognition-and-branding-tools/branding-style-guides/SIABrandingandStyleGuidelines.pdf has colors and fonts for Soroptimist and its programs

Is the Online folder in Members Only area?
Carole Bennett, Novato
01:14:47
I have the SI color on a sticky pad on my desktop. I use it so often! #518bc9 — I almost know it by heart!
Meredith Silberstein | SI Davis webmaster
01:15:20
Same here!
Meredith Silberstein | SI Davis webmaster
01:27:09
Note that Wix does NOT support Anchors
Meredith Silberstein | SI Davis webmaster
01:27:24
(from external sites)
jackie de vries
01:28:53
thank you, good to know. I do use Wix, but as I said not my favorite on the rescue I manage.
Carole Bennett, Novato
01:30:37
A problem with using YouTube is that when they come to the end, they might then go directly into one of my family YouTube movies, as they are all on my personal YouTube Channel. Any ways around that?
Meredith Silberstein | SI Davis webmaster
01:31:44
Once you have an SI website, you can get an email address associated with that email. Open a YouTube account with that email, and it keeps everything separate. All nonprofits qualify for Google for Nonprofits and can get free "Workspace by Google," which includes email addresses, YouTube accounts, and so on.
Meredith Silberstein | SI Davis webmaster
01:31:57
*associated with that website domain, I mean
Carole Bennett, Novato
01:33:02
Thank you!
Tess Albin-Smith
01:35:33
Thanks! Learned a lot! Gotta go.
Bobbi Enderlin
01:38:08
we have a members only section for our club roster, meeting minutes, etc. We have a password to get in.
Meredith Silberstein | SI Davis webmaster
01:38:37
Also useful for any other private information, like Zoom links so you don't get people popping in who aren't members
Carole Bennett, Novato
01:38:39
We use MEMBERS ONLY (password protected) for any forms that they might need; the press release f form or check request form for instance. We keep the roster there as well as ByLaws.
Meredith Silberstein | SI Davis webmaster
01:43:25
I'd love to know what other Soroptimists think of sidavis.org (the one I maintain).
Meredith Silberstein | SI Davis webmaster
01:46:55
I'm based in Petaluma, which is why I am here :) I used to be in Davis, and there's no club here ;_;
Linda Comiskey
01:47:14
Thank you Meredith for the link.
Carole Bennett, Novato
01:47:16
Wow! Nice looking! I am going to explore this a bit!
Bobbi Enderlin
01:47:24
Would you like to start a club in Petaluma? We would love to have one there!
Meredith Silberstein | SI Davis webmaster
01:48:11
I did seriously think about it before the pandemic! I don't know if the Petaluma Women's Club would be serious competition or mutual friends
Meredith Silberstein | SI Davis webmaster
01:49:54
Haha, that's why I need to ATTEND that class!
Laura Glass SI Antioch
