1. "I've been hacked/infected" class videos now available
About 50 people turned out for DCN's "My Account Has Been Hacked/Infected: What Do I Do Now?" class in mid-June. If you missed it, or want to revisit the useful information presented by the panelists, watch these free videos posted on YouTube:

We thank Morton, Ono, and Nickerson for volunteering their time and expertise!

We'll offer additional free classes this fall; look for updates in the next edition of this newsletter.

2. Before the fall rush of volunteer activities begins...
August is a fine month to brush up on any Davis volunteer organization web duties you have acquired for 2013-14. See if one of these how-to video tutorials has what you need:

  • Adding a Facebook box to your SimpleSite
  • Adding a footer to your SimpleSite
  • Changing a SimpleSite's visual theme using a stylesheet from DCN's gallery
  • Adding a custom CSS and graphic logo to a SimpleSite
  • Embedding a video in your SimpleSite
  • Adding a video to your SimpleSite without embedding
  • Logging In and out for SimpleSites

3. It's not spam, it's just no longer needed
Please help us spread the word to your email list members: When they want to exit your list (often because their child has graduated), ask them to unsubscribe, and not to mark messages from the list as spam. Labeling messages as spam will disrupt the distribution of your emails to the people who still want to receive them.

To unsubscribe from any list that uses DCN tools, look at the bottom of messages you receive from the list. There you should find instructions on unsubscribing, or on how to find a "listinfo" page from which you may unsubscribe. If you can't find that information, visit and look for the name of your list. Brief instructions at the top of this listinfo page will tell you how to unsubscribe.

4. Is a website down? Ask here
When you can't get access to a website and wonder if the problem is theirs or yours, this free resource can help. Type in the address of the website you're wondering about – the title says it all:

5. Newest calendar users
Newest customers of the DCN calendar:

DCN's web calendar tool lets a group more easily update both its own online calendar and the shared Davis Community Calendar. Read more at, or at

Also – the DCN community calendar is a great place to check if you are planning an event and want to see what else is happening that day. The more groups use the calendar, the more useful it will be for the entire community.

Davis Community Network is a nonprofit organization that provides Internet-related services and support to local nonprofit organizations, public agencies, schools and individuals. We're putting the power of the Internet in the hands of people and organizations to connect, engage, and build a stronger community - since 1993.
