OESC-Announcement-2016-11-01 Chapter Homepage layout redesign

OESChapters.org (OESC) has enhanced the Chapter home page layout to provide a more intuitive approach and provide increased ease of use and functionality for both members and visitors to the participating Chapters of OESC.

The home page has been categorized into functional areas of interest and had a new announcements feature added.

We hope that you enjoy the enhanced Chapter home page design and that you find the announcements function useful in communicating upcoming events and news to your members and prospects.


The following changes were made to the OESC environment:

  • Added a “Contact Us” page to each participating Chapter and ZZ999.
  • Changed each Chapter’s home page to reflect the contact us page (including ZZ999 sample/templates chapter).
  • Updated the Chapters selection page to correct a small typo and added the ‘page last updated’ footer line.
  • Added a new function “Announcements” to each Chapter’s home page (including ZZ999).

OESC-Announcement-2016-10-31 Announcements page added

OESChapters.org is pleased to announce the availability of a new feature in the OESC environment- “Announcements”.  These are dynamically populated pages containing announcements about the environment.  Each participating Chapter in the OESC environment has it’s own announcements page as well as OESC itself.

For each Chater, the announcements function is implemented as a page with posts.  To add an announcement you merely need to craft an appropriate post with the category of your Chapter id “ZZ999” and tag ‘announcements’.  The announcement posts will dynamically populate the announcements static page in descending date order with 6 announcement links per page.

For OESC itself, the announcements page lives on the “About OESC” page and will be used to communicate upcoming events (maintenance etc) as well as new features and capabilities of the OESC environment.

Detailed how-to documentation for the new feature will be added in the next few days.
