Update: 14 January 2021

An issue where members were unable to contribute to the Blog, Videos and Photos has now been fixed.

Update: 23 December 2020

We have now upgraded to Ning 3.0. You may notice a few differences. Archives Live is now responsive, so it will automatically re-size features and content based on the device you’re using. Ning has provided a quick breakdown of Ning 2.0 vs Ning 3.0 equivalents that you can check out.

If you find an interesting bit of content that you’d like to keep track of, you can now use the “Follow” link to receive an email whenever there is any activity on the content item - for example when a new Event is added to the Events page. The “Follow” link can usually be found at the bottom of the content area - read more about this feature.

If you encounter any problems, please email us at:
