About Subscribers and Registered Users


Anyone who wants to keep abreast of postings on this the P.A.C.E. Home may subscribe. To become a Subscriber, check out the SUBSCRIBE Page. Should you later wish to unsubscribe, you can do that from the same page.

When you subscribe, you will receive a confirmation email. Please remember to confirm your subscription to activate it. Subscriptions left unconfirmed (and those that “bounce” from a bad email address) will periodically be removed by admin.

(The subscribe link in the lower left panel is for RSS, another option for checking posts on this site, independent of subscription.)

Registered Users

For those of you who are Registered Users, there are more options. (Don’t use the SUBSCRIBE page!) You can login to exercise finer control over categories for which you will be notified.

  • Registered Users by default will receive messages in all categories except “Site Testing” – so I can use that for tests. If you change your preferences, they will remain as you set them – unless I must at some time use the blunt instrument of a global reset.
  • N.B. If you are a Registered User at the time of this post, this post may prompt your first email notification.

Most Registered Users also have privileges to contribute articles (posts) to the P.A.C.E. Home, depending upon how your role is defined. (Roles include “Contributer,” “Author,” or even “Editor.” For information see Summary of Roles here.)

If there are any Registered Users who want help knowing how to contribute – or others who might like to join the collaboration, please contact me at .

More information about the Subscribe2 plugin may be found here, or see my notes.

Using RSS to read posts

Did you know that you can use RSS to read the “headlines” of posts in this or any other Blog?

If you are using the Firefox web browser, look for the icon RSS icon. You can usually find it in the address bar above, as well as in the side bar under Subscribe. (It may be a different color, but the design is usually quite similar.)
Click on the icon, and it will give you the option to “Add Live Bookmark!”

I like to add my “live bookmarks” to the a folder in the main “Bookmarks Toolbar Folder.” Then I can just click on that folder and slide my pointer down over the desired feed (“live bookmark”). The feed will then expand to show all the lastest posts on that blog or RSS-enabled site. I can click on any “headline” and go right to the posting!

There are other special programs that can collect your RSS feeds, but I like the convenience of reading them right from my Firefox browser.

Help and Tech Info

I’ve set up a new category called “Help and Tech Info.”
Here I will put information to help people get the most out of this site, including such things as updates on how you might contribute, how to better navigate, links to other helpful info – and whatever else I think of that comes under the “tech” rubric.

Introducing the WordPress-based P.A.C.E. Home

Welcome to the new P.A.C.E. web site, based upon WordPress blogging system.

This system is not merely “pretty,” but it also provides a lot of functional flexibility. With our WordPress-based system, we will be able to allow people such as P.A.C.E. officers and steering committee members to post their significant thoughts and items of interest in “posts.” (More traditional web site info will be in the “pages.”)

While your webmaster will keep fairly tight control over authoring privileges to keep the spammers out, I will be more than glad to have people other than officers and steering committee people become contributors and authors. Let me know if you are interested!
