*Important Notification*

February 14, 2020

Attention All Club Content Managers and Club Presidents:

The Recreation Centers of Sun City West has two important issues you need to know about:

1. We are migrating all club websites housed on scwclubs.com to a new server.  Moving the club websites to this new server will provide faster, more secure service and be more cost effective.

During the migration, visitors/viewers to your club websites will still be able to see your website content. The big difference is the Content Managers SHOULD NOT add, change or delete content on the sites during this time.  Please make any changes needed on your site prior to Wednesday, February 19, 2020. Any changes made after that date may be lost during the transition.

The migration will begin Wednesday, February 19, 2020, and for over 100 club websites it is anticipated to take 7-10 days for the entire migration to be completed.  We will notify you once the migration has been completed and you are able to again begin updating your websites.

2. Secondly, we have restricted the use of Member Validator to approved IP addresses only after becoming aware that some members were using this service at their homes. Member Validator is intended for use in club facilities only. While we understand this may be inconvenient for some, it will better protect our members’ information. All club facilities will be whitelisted by Wednesday, Feb. 19. If you have trouble accessing Member Validator after the 19th, please email scwclubs@suncitywest.com.

Thank you for your patience as we completed these upgrades for better performance and security for our members!

Thank you,

Katy O’Grady
General Services Officer

 

Divi Builder – New Update

Does your Divi Builder look wrong???

You may have inadvertently converted to the new Divi Builder.  Our Volunteer Trainer – Gene Mitofsky – has been working with a few clubs  to resolve the issue and go back to the Classic Divi Editor.

If you are having any issues please submit a ticket or contact Gene Mitofsky at 623-505-7206, emitofsky@gmail.com.

Divi Issue – Resolved!

Resolved!

This issue has been resolved.  If you have any problems with your website please submit a ticket or email scwclubs@suncitywest.com

Thank you for your patience as we resolved this issue!

Divi Builder Issue

There has been an issue with the Divi builder on several Club websites.  The Divi Builder is not editable and you cannot create a new page using the Divi Builder. We are working on resolving the issue but there is not a current ETA on when it will be resolved.

NOTE:  This issue is NOT on ALL Club websites just a few.

Requirement for all Club Websites, Brochures and Flyers

Everyone should have received an email notification regarding the requirement for the statement “Open to Club Members and their accompanied guests!” to be on all SCW Club Websites. This second email was for clarification as there were many questions on this requirement.  The email was sent to all Club Content Managers and Club Presidents. 

Update Issues with Internet Explorer

Several Content Managers have reported issues with trying to update their Club website pages.  They are receiving a “Builder Cache Warning” saying they do not have security rights to update their club website pages.  I have seen this issue and it appears to be happening with users who are using Internet Explorer

You can try clearing your browser cache, close and reopen.  If this continues please switch to a different browser such as Chrome, Microsoft Edge or Firefox then you should be able to update your club’s website without the error.  If you still continue to have problems please submit a Help Ticket.

Governing Board Decision Regarding Non-Chartered Clubs

The Recreation Centers Governing Board has decided to limit space on the scwclubs.com website to Chartered Clubs of the Association.

Non-chartered clubs wishing to retain a website will need to create external websites as soon as possible as their current SCWClubs.com website will be removed in the very near future.  Non-Chartered club Presidents and Content Managers have been notified and several volunteers have offered support to assist the clubs on this transition. 

Note:  The Rec Centers will add a “Non-Chartered Clubs” page with links to external websites to our Club Directory.  If a Sun City West Non-Chartered club wishes for us to post a link to their external website they can email the Club Name and URL to scwclubs@suncitywest.com  We will periodically check the links and any broken links will be removed from our site.

If you have any questions regarding this transition, please submit a ticket and I will respond to your inquiry.
