First Website Visit

If you are new to the website please read this as it will answer all of your questions on how to get a password, make a profile and how to use the website.

This website was created for the use of all classmates and is maintained by your classmate administrator. It is completely free to our classmates.  You will never be asked to pay to make a profile or to be able to access other alumni profiles.

You have the option of password protecting your personal profile which blocks the general public and search engines from accessing your profile details.  Once you create a profile, you will also be able to see the profiles of your fellow classmates and interact with them.

All contact information that you enter into this website will be kept confidential.  It will not be shared or distributed.  Your contact information is private: your address and phone number can't be seen by the classmates unless you grant permission on your profile. When someone clicks on your name, all they will see of your contact information is your city and state and whatever information about yourself you choose to put on your web page. Your email address is not viewable, though an email can be sent to you using the contact box at the bottom of your web page. However, if you send a message to someone through their profile, they will see your email address so that they can respond.

You will need to make your individual profile in order to access any password protected pages on the site.  Start by clicking on the Classmate Profiles link. This will take you to a page with all your classmate names, including yours. Find your name and click on it.  Follow the prompts to create your profile. The password that you enter during this process will be used as your login password. You can personalize your page with information such as what have you been up to since graduation in '64, school memories, your family, and photos.

 Lock Your Profile:  We recommend you enable "Profile Visibility" on your classmate profile to keep your information from being viewed by outsiders.  "Locking" your profile will ensure that only member classmates who are logged on can view your information.  To find out whether or not your profile is private, view Classmate Profiles BEFORE you log in.  If there is a padlock icon next to your name your profile is Locked.  To change this setting, log on, click on "Edit Profile" scroll to the  bottom and put a check in the box next to "Profile Visibility", then scroll down and click "Save Changes".

If you cannot find your name on the Classmate Profiles page, please contact us to have your name added.

Update Your Profile:
If you change your email address, mailing address, or phone number, please update those details in your profile.  We would like to keep our database as current as possible. Use the Edit Profile function under the Member Functions in the left navigation.

Forgot Password and Retrieval:
If you click "Remember Me" when you log in, you will not need to log in next time you go to the site. Please Note: there is a password retrieval feature to click on: "Forgot Password?" in case you need to log in sometime and can't remember your password; the password will be sent to your email inbox. You can login from computers other than your home computer but you will need to enter your password.

More Instructions

How to upload pictures to your web page:

1.    Be sure you are logged in on the home page. In the links on the left side under MEMBER FUNCTIONS, click on the link: Edit/Upload Photos.

2.    The Photo page will appear and you’ll see a gray box titled: Upload New photo. Click on this box and you will be at the Add Photo page.

3.    The Add Photo page gives basic instructions for uploading your photos. There are 3 places on this page to make entries.
Sort: The sort number controls the order in which photos display on your page. By default your pictures will appear in the order you entered them, so this isn’t important for your first picture. But later if you want picture #5 to appear as #1, you will have to change the sort numbers on your pictures. If you delete a picture, the sort numbers for the remaining pictures do not change (e.g., if you delete picture #2 out of 4 pictures, you will show pictures #1, 3, and 4.)
Caption: Caption is the description you write for your picture.
Browse: This is the most important one, for this is how you find the picture on your computer and get it to appear on your page.

4.    Your first picture will automatically be Sort Number 1.

5.    Now click the Browse button. A list of folders on your computer will show up. Locate the folder that holds your picture. For most classmates this will be the My Pictures folder located in the My Documents folder. When you have clicked through to your picture file, click the view button at the top to show icons as pictures. This makes it easier to find the specific picture you want to upload.

6.    Select the picture you want to upload by clicking on it once, and then click Open at the bottom of the box.

7.    Now you will be taken back to the Add Photo page and in the Upload Photo box you will see the path to your picture.

8.    Enter the Caption for your picture in the box.

9.    Click the SAVE CHANGES button.

Now go to your Profile page and look for your picture and caption.

PRIVACY NOTICE:  All contact information (address, phone number, e-mail address) entered into this website will be kept confidential.  It will not be shared or distributed.  Your contact information is private: your street address, e-mail address, and phone number cannot be seen by the classmates unless you grant permission on your Profile (see above).  When someone clicks on your name, the only contact information they will see is your city and state and whatever information about yourself you choose to put on your Profile. Unless you explicitly grant your permission, your email address is not visible, although an email can be sent to you using the contact box at the bottom of your Profile page. Note, however, if you send a message to someone through their Profile page, the Classmate will see your email address so that they can respond.
