How to Use Stand Firm
Click this login link. Underneath the login form is a link to register for an account. Click it, then enter a user name (the name you’ll log in with), a screen name (the name that’s displayed when you make comments), a password, and a valid email address. You’ll complete your registration by clicking a click sent to the email address you provide, so the address must be valid, and one to which you have access. ^back to top^
After you register at the site, you’ll be sent an email containing a confirmation link. You must click this link to confirm your registration. If you haven’t received this email yet, please check your spam filter or junk mailbox - they sometimes get trapped there. Please note that final approval and activation is done by site administrators, so please be patient. ^back to top^
Click this login link. Enter the username and password you provided when you registered. if you’ve forgotten your password, click the “Forgot your password?” link and provide the email address with which your registered. You will be sent an email with instructions on resetting your password. ^back to top^
Click this login link. Click “Forgot your password?” and follow the instructions. Since our system stores passwords only in encrypted format, we are unable to email your password to you. The system, however, will allow you to reset it if you follow the “Forgot Password” instructions. PLEASE NOTE THESE TWO THINGS: 1) Since the system remembers you by placing a cookie on your computer, you must have cookies enabled in order to log in, and in order for the system to see you as logged in from page to page; 2) The web browser that comes with AOL uses very strict security settings that often interfere with the proper functioning of our system. Our recommendation is to change to a non-AOL web browser. Also, we do not support Windows98, WindowsME, or the Netscape browser, as Microsoft and AOL have ceased support of these systems. ^back to top^
PLEASE NOTE that responding via email to a comment notification does NOT post your comment to the site. Only the comment submission form at the end of every thread will post your comment to the site.
You may comment using Facebook, if you have a Facebook account and are currently logged in.
You may comment in the Stand Firm system if you are registered and logged in. When you’re logged in, a comment form will appear at the bottom of all articles for which comments are open. Compose your comment in the box, and click the “Submit” button to post it to the site. If you log in but don’t see the comment box, it may because you have cookies disabled. Check your web browser settings and, if necessary, add www.standfirminfaith.com to the list of sites from which you accept cookies. On rare occasion, we close comments (or never open them in the first place) on certain articles. ^back to top^
You can set which comment tab - Facebook or Stand Firm - opens by default when you view a page.
1. Make sure you’re logged in, and click “Your Account” in the top menu
2. In the left-side menu, under “Personal Settings” click “Edit Profile”
3. Near the bottom of the screen, beside “Comment Tab,” pull down and select “Facebook” or “Stand Firm.”
4. Click the “Update” button.
Log in and click the “Your Account” icon near the top of the page. Under “Personal Settings,” click “Username and Password” and make the changes you desire. You can change your email address in the “Email Settings” section. NOTE: Changing your screen name will change it wherever you have made a post, even posts made in the past. ^back to top^
We occasionally receive requests from people wanting to be “removed from the list.” If you have emailed us with this request, please note:
We do not delete accounts from our system, because doing so also deletes all comments you’ve made. This causes problems due to the way comments are numbered and referred to by other members.
If you want to stop receiving emails from us, or otherwise change your incoming email settings, please follow the next set of instructions. ^back to top^
Near the comment box is a checkbox labeled “Notify me of follow-up comments?” It is checked by default. Whenever you comment on an article and leave this box checked, you’ll receive an email notification whenever someone comments on that article. If you wish not to receive email notifications, uncheck the box.
You may also use our Control Panel to manage email notifications on an article-by-article basis. Log in, click “Your Account,” and click “Email Settings.” Under “Utilities” click “View Subscriptions.” Check or uncheck the boxes to enable or disable email notifications.
Some people want to be notified of follow-up comments on threads on which they leave their own comment. Others do not. By default, this setting is “on,” but you can turn it off by logging in and going to your control panel. Under “Personal Settings” click “Email Settings,” and un-check ” Enable email notifications by default when you post messages.”
Other email settings, including whether you receive email alerts from us, can be managed under “Email Settings” in the “Personal Settings” section. ^back to top^
Simply post a comment with the word “Subscribe,” and make sure the checkbox labeled “Notify me of follow-up comments?” is checked when you click “Submit.” You’ll then receive all comments subsequently posted to that thread. This is also a good solution if you’ve inadvertently unchecked “Notify me of follow-up comments” on a thread you’d like to continue being notified by email of follow-up comments. ^back to top^
Log in, then click “Your Account” at the top of the page. On the left side, click the small “+” beside “Private Messaging” and you’ll see your inbox, a link to compose a new message, and other features similar to standard email programs. ^back to top^
Method 1: Log in to your account and go to the control panel. Click “Member List,” search for the member to whom you’d like send a message. When you find him, click his name, then click the “PM” button in the “Communications” section.
Method 2: On most screens, when you’re logged in you’ll see a list of users who are also currently logged in. If you see the name of person to whom you want to send a private message, click it. Then click the “PM” button in the “Communications” section, and proceed to compose and send your message as you normally would.
The Private Messaging section also has a Buddy List for easy management of message recipients. ^back to top^
Registered users can add their own links to the top of our “Around the Web” and “Around the MSM” sections. Go to your account control panel, and under the section “Personal Settings” click “Edit Profile.” Locate the “Links” section, and enter any links you’d like displayed on your “Around the Web” page. You may simply enter URLs, or you may use the <a href=”...”>...</a> tag to create clean, spiffy links. For example, copy and paste this text into your “Links” field, save, then go to “Around the Web” and refresh the page, and note how it’s displayed at the top:
This is especially helpful for those who want to make “Around the Web” their homepage, but don’t want to lose any links they have on their current homepage. For best results, put each link on its own line.
Your custom links are not visible to other site visitors.
