As the website administrator, you have two separate logins. You have the administrator login, which you use when you need to update the website, add a picture or add a new page. And then you have your member login, which you use to sign up for roles and speeches. In this step, we will cover what you need to know to log in as a member. If your new members have trouble logging into the club website, you can refer them to this article.
Even though your members are not administrators for the website, they will still be able to see the administrator login button. To log in as a member, click on the “Member Login” button located in the left-hand sidebar.
A login box titled “Club Member Login” will appear. It will tell you that you need to be registered by the administrator. When a new member pays his or her dues to the club, the VP-PR person is responsible for adding this new member to the website. You can read more about how to do this in Free Toast Host Club Website Tutorial Series: 17. Membership Management. But once the member has been registered, they are in the system. If this is the first time logging in, simply type in your name with a space in between first and last name. It should appear in a drop down feature, because you have been registered. Simply click your name and click “Authenticate/Login” without inserting a password.
Once you have clicked “Authenticate/Login” without a password, a link will be emailed you to. It will be sent to the email you provided during your sign-up process with the Toastmasters club. This step is necessary, as you need to prove that you are indeed the right person. You will be prompted to create a password, which will work once you have authenticated the account.
You are only required to authenticate the account if you are a new user, or if you need to reset the password. Now that all of the login details have been sorted out, let’s focus on those necessary pages under the “Main Menu,” which are visible to everyone.
