What is a showcase?
On this site a showcase is a mini website (yoursite.nwo.ca) that you can create/edit your own webpages/blog. Below are some showcase options (please be logged in before proceeding):
A showcase (yoursite.nwo.ca, able to create/edit pages and a blog) – $25.00/year
Showcase Plus (bronze)
A showcase plus an email forwarder (firstname.lastname@example.org) that forwards to any email address you like – $50.00/year
Showcase Plus (silver)
A showcase plus an email box (email@example.com) that stores up to 10MB of email with webmail access! – $75.00/year
Showcase Plus (gold)
A showcase with any of the above and administrator access (allows you full access to your showcase, even removing the ads) – $100.00/year
Showcase Plus (platinum)
A showcase with any of the above and webmaster support ($60 one time fee to configure site, add a new theme and up to five plugins) – $120.00/year
Maybe a showcase is not the solution for you, get a WebTerritory website package (your own complete independent website) with any theme, widgets and/or plugins you want.
How do I get a showcase? (recommended process)
- If not already a member choose a membership level. Note: Only businesses, organizations and/or professionals that are established only in Northwestern Ontario will qualify for a showcase. If do not qualify, visit WebTerritory for a showcase.
- Create and complete your member directory listing, the admin will review this information to verify qualification for a showcase and use it to setup/configure the showcase. Choose one of the Showcase subscription buttons (if you did not choose a showcase in step one) and complete the payment process.
- Contact us and provide the showcase title, tag line (catch phrase), web address (yoursite.nwo.ca) and any other information you want to add. The site admin will use this information and the information in your listing to complete the showcase build. The admin will contact you with access details once it is ready.
I have one, now what?
Get to your showcase by logging in, once you are logged in you should be taken to the dashboard (if not then use the ‘Site Admin’ link). Hover over ‘My Sites’ then select your site (Showcase) from the drop down.
At NWO.ca we use WordPress as our Content Management System (CMS) so first I would recommend visiting Pages and Writing Posts resources at the wordpress.org site before you take the plunge. Of course there is a lot more there, if you opted for the gold or platinum showcase you can read up on the theme, widgets and/or plugins articles too.
