Hello and welcome to WeatherTogether!
WeatherTogether is a multisite network consisting of weather blogs, community forums, collaborative projects, and so much more. The concept of a multisite network can be a bit confusing, as there is far more to WeatherTogether than what you simply see on weathertogether.us. Here’s a brief primer on getting registered and navigating throughout the network.
Registering For The Site
To become a member, you simply click on the “register” button in the top right corner of the page. Or, just click here.
This will direct you to a form where you can register your account and make your site if you so choose. For more details on making a site, click here.
After this, you’ll get the familiar “Check Your Email To Activate Your Account!” Be sure to check your spam if you don’t see it in your inbox. After everything is activated, you can go back to the site and log in!
Your BuddyPress Profile
Once you are logged in, you can click on the “Howdy, (insert name here)” in the upper right-hand corner, and it will take you to your profile. You can also simply click on the “Profile” tab on the menu below.
Once you are at your profile, you can do a variety of different things. You can post “status updates” (activity), edit your profile, look at your personal site (if you made one), read notifications, look at forum posts, and modify your settings.
Although you can see your your activity/site and forums you follow on your own profile, you need to go to the Activity page and the Forums to see what other people are posting. The Activity page is here and the forums are on the home page. Once you have set up your profile, introduce yourself in the Introductions Forum. We’d love to meet you!
To find the weather sites and blogs that others have created, go to the interactive map at the bottom of the homepage. The map has a marker for the location of each weather blog. Clicking on one of those markers will open up a box with a little information about the blogger. Click on the picture in that box to go to that person’s site.
Additionally, the weather blogs of our contributors are listed under the “Our Contributors” page here.
These sites are what really make WeatherTogether special. Be sure to check them out! The current sites at this time are Charlie’s Weather, Little Bear Creek Weather, Phoenix Weather Blog, The Dalles Weather Blog, Ingalls Weather, and A Former USMC Wx-Man.
That’s enough to get you started. Thanks for reading, and we hope you enjoy WeatherTogether!
