Welcome to The Island Club of Hilton Head’s website “Site FAQ”. FAQ stands for “Frequently Asked Questions”. This has been added to the site to help explain how some of the things on here work and why you may be experiencing trouble or unable to locate something.
Only part of an announcement is showing on the front page, why can’t I read the entire announcement?
Announcements are truncated at 150 words. You will see a [...] at the end if there is more to the announcement. To read the entire announcement simply click on the Title Link for that Announcement and it will bring up a page with the entire contents of the post. Also for space reasons, when a post is shorted to 150 words for the front page, it will remove all forms of formatting, so bold, italics and paragraph formation will be abandoned, however the full post will retain all the proper formatting.
What is RSS and how do I sign up for the RSS feed?
RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication. If you have an RSS Feed Reader, the Reader will periodically scan the feeds you provide it for updates and will grab any headlines that have been added since you last checked. Think of it as a robot that goes to all those websites you would otherwise check one by one and it retrieves all the new updates and presents them to you in one place. If you’re interested in more, you can click the headline and check out more.
The Orange Circle in the top middle of the screen to the right of the search box is the RSS Feed button. If you press that button a new window/tab will open where you can select what Feed Reader you want to use or you can choose to have updates emailed to you. If you choose to have them emailed, every day Google FeedBurner will collect all the new announcements for that 24 hour period and send them all to you in one simple email. This will save you from having to check the website unless you’ve been notified about something that perks your interest. You may subscribe to this feature or unsubscribe to it at any time.
I am trying to view the Photo Tour and clicked on Slideshow but nothing is happening. Why isn’t it working?
The Photo Gallery plugin loads every single photo into cache before it begins to cycle the Slideshow, this way there is no lag (delay) in the Slideshow presentation once it begins.
I clicked on a photo and it enlarged it but now I can’t do anything on the page! What’s wrong?
Simply click the photo again and it will close out again.
The Video Tour movie is not loading / is lagging terribly. Why?
Our Video Tour is hosted on YouTube so that it can gain additional hits/traffic to our site. If the video is loading slowly, it may be YouTube’s servers that are bogged down with excessive traffic. If it’s not loading at all, try refreshing the page (F5 on your PC keyboard), if that doesn’t resolve the issue of it not loading at all, try again later. If the video plays but then stops, then starts playing again a few seconds later, then stops again – the video streaming slower than it is playing. Simply pause the video and let it load the entire video before you hit play, that will allow for seamless playback.
My question isn’t posted above! What do I do?
