Here’s how to record a service.

  1. Make sure the PA system is plugged into the Line In jack on the little  black Zoom recording device.
  2. Turn on the device, by sliding the power switch toward 1/0 and holding it for a second.
  3. Check that the device is on, by looking for some numbers on the front.
  4. Push the red button to start recording.
  5. Check that the device is recording. The numbers should be counting up: the duration of the recording in hours, minutes and seconds.

When you’re done recording.

  1. Push the red button again.  The numbers should stop counting up, and switch to a display like in step 3 above.
  2. Turn off the device exactly the same way you turned it on, by sliding the power switch toward 1/0 and holding it for a second.
  3. Make  sure the device is off by checking that there aren’t any numbers on the display.

If you visit this web site often, you’ll notice a cleaner look.  Please let me know whether you like it, by sending me email or leaving a comment.

We’ve also added a sidebar with links to the Lower Merrimack Valley Episcopal Voice, a blog with contributions from various parishes in our area.

It’s certainly possible to go back to the former look.

The St. Paul’s web site uses a web publishing system known as WordPress.  It’s a popular open-source way for a community of people to publish and share material on the web.

To find out more about WordPress, you can visit the project’s web site at wordpress.org.  If you want to use it to create a personal web site, you can do so for free at wordpress.com.  People who use WordPress a lot find it useful to have their own personal web site simply to try things out.

The St. Paul’s web site is backed up automatically.  So, if you make a mistake, or heaven forbid, a cyber-vandal breaks in to the web site and defaces it, don’t panic.  We can restore it easily.

If you want to contribute to the web site, ask Deb Hay in the church office, or somebody on the Communications Team, to give you a user name and password.

We have a few short video tutorials on how to contribute to the web site.

The first thing you need to be able to do is log in.  Watch this short video to learn to do that:

Once you have logged in, you can create a news item on the web site.  News items are called Posts in WordPress jargon.  Watch this video to learn how to do that.

Frequently it’s necessary to post an item on behalf of somebody else.  To do that, first post the item normally, then go back and edit it so it’s attributed to the right person and has the right date.  Watch this video for some tips on doing that.
