Manage Settings

The below information explains the different headings found under Manager Settings with the Website Editor Control Panel. 

Firstly, scroll down to the bottom of your website and click 'Site Editor'. You will then be shown the Website Editor Control Panel.

Authorisation

Firstly, login to your Online Membership Database - If you or the person you are giving authorisation to do not have your login details, please contact your State Governing Body or Association.

To add additional Website Editors, you can make any SportsTG Passport account holder an administrator of your website. When logged in to the Website Editor Control Panel, you can manage authorisation of other website editors by clicking on the Authorisation menu under the Manage Settings heading.

   

This section displays a list of those people who are authorised to administer the website.  

   

To add an administrator for the site type in their email address and click on the add button. To remove a member’s authorisation click on delete next to their name. All administrators must be registered through Passport in order to be authorised as a website editor.

Authorising Club website editors

As a League or Association, you hold the keys to controlling the website editor access for all of your Club's websites. Many clubs don't even know that they have a free Standard website available to them, so it's a good PR/relationship building exercise for you to firstly build the awareness of this amongst your clubs, and secondly give them access to their site. Actually, we wrote a short blog about this recently.  

So what do you have to do? Simple. First get them to sign up to Passport if they haven't already, then you need to authorise them, see below:  

1. Go to your Standard/Advanced website and find the club's site that you want to authorise (if you can't find your club websites section, you may have renamed it or made it inactive within your content manager).

2. Click on Website Editor and login with your Passport email/password (please note: your Passport will need to have editor access to the Assoc/League Standard website for this to work).

3. Click on the Authorisation menu underneath Manage Settings.

4. Enter in the Passport email address of the person that you wish to authorise as the editor of this club website.

Domain Names

What is a Domain Name?

A domain name is like a street address for the Internet. Computers identify websites by a number (for example SportsTG's CNAME record webgw.foxsportspulse.com).    

Why Would I Want One?

You do not necessarily need a domain name. Your website can be reached through www.SportsTG.com, or generally through your governing body's website.  If you want people to be able to go directly to your site you have three options:  

1.  Use the standard address which will begin with www.SportsTG.com/  

2.  Purchase your own unique domain name and arrange your domain to redirect to your SportsTG site - see: 'Domain Registration' below. Domain names make it easier to advertise your web site.  

3.  Create a shorter/unique SportsTG subdomain - see: Sub-domains: yourclub.SportsTG.net below SportsTG sub-domains do not require a purchase and can also make it easier to advertise your web site.  

Domain Name Registration

If you would like to register a domain name for your association or club so as to make your site easier to find and easier for your members to remember then Netregistry can offer several types of domain names. You may use the domain name company of your choice, however. With any domain name ending in .au then an Australian Business Number (ABN) or Incorporation Number is required for a domain name.  

Domain Name Redirection

Once you have created a domain name or if you already own a domain name and wish to redirect it to your new SportsTG website, the supported method is to add webgw.foxsportspulse.com as a CNAME record to their domain name. This step must be added by the user or their ISP, with the only exception being if we host their domain name.  Then contact SportsTG (Submit a Request via the SportsTG Support Centre) with your domain name and the website you wish it to be linked to and we will finalise the transfer of the domain name to your new website.  

Sub-domians: yourclub.SportsTG.net  

Website editors have the ability to assign a SportsTG.net domain to their site automatically – for example, yourclubname.SportsTG.net.  

When compared to the long and complex SportsTG URL’s you often find in your browser when navigating your website, this shorter web address (URL) can greatly assist in the promotion of your website to your members and supporters.  

Assigning a SportsTG.net sub domain to your site

Log in to your website's Site Administration Control Panel (back-end) as a website editor.  

Click on the Domain Name icon.  

Enter the domain name you would like for your site (You will be notified if your selected domain has already been taken or unavailable, and SportsTG reserves the right to revoke access to any domain name in our system at any time.)   

What sub domains will be available?

At this stage you’ll be able to assign a domain name with the yourclub.SportsTG.net extension, where you’ll be able to select the prefix (e.g. 'yourclub') for your domain.  

Note: Some sports already offer their own sport-specific domain names – e.g. leaguenet.com.au (RubgyLeague), ridenet.com.au (Motorcycling) etc. We encourage you to contact your sport’s governing body to find out more information about any such domains that may be available.    

Please note: SportsTG do not host domain names

Site Statistics

1. From the Website Editor Control Panel, click on Site Statistics.  

2. The stats area provides figures relating to the traffic to your website over the past 13 months. This is measured in terms of page requests, which is basically the number of times a user clicks on a link on your website.  The Site Statistics area gives you breakdown of page requests per month over the past 13 months (as well as MB of data downloaded/ viewed), and per day over the past week.  At the bottom of the Site Statistics page is the number of members who have signed up for email reminders and upload notifications (members can do this through Passport).
