When you join Dundalk Chamber of Commerce, you are automatically entitled to add content to the dundalk.ie website, which will then be moderated, edited if required) and posted. New members seem to either forget this (the facility is widely underused) or just email their news directly to Chamber staff. There is also some confusion over HOW you go about getting access to the site and posting news, events, job postings etc, so we have put together a tutorial to show how it’s done. All members should register and at least add their listing to the Business Directory.
What’s important to remember is that the very first time you want to login to the site, you have to REGISTER your details, which allows us to create a login and password for you. This is a one off activity, but no registration means no access. Please see the below steps for registration and first time login.
After you receive confirmation of membership with the Chamber of Commerce, visit https://dundalk.ie and register your details with the site. See the highlighted area below (click to enlarge image).
Click on the “First Time” message below the login button. This step is best carried out on a desktop or laptop computer.
Enter the main email contact for your business, twice to confirm. It is highly advised to use the info@ address for your company (or another general email address) that everyone can access, even if someone in your office leaves, retires or is on holiday.
You will be asked to prove you are human with a simple test and also given the option to sign up for our periodic newsletter. All members automatically get the monthly digest of news from the website. Click the “Register” button.
An email will now be sent to the email address provided. If you don’t see the email, check your junk folder. The email can take up to an hour to arrive, but is usually instant.
You must click the link on the first line of the email to complete registration.
In order to complete registration, you must provide a password. The password should be complex yet easy to remember. One is suggested for you, but you can create your own. Try and keep the “Strength Indicator” green!
Once you are happy, click “Reset Password”.
You are now full registered. Well done! Return to the homepage of the site and click on the Member Login button.
Login withe email address and password previously supplied. You can always reset your password should you forget it.
On successful login, you will be brought to the Members Dashboard. Here there are a host of options previously unavailable to you.
Start by adding your listing to the database.
If you have any problems, you can use the “Get Support” option. If you can’t even login, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to sort out your account details.
