How do I post an announcement on the website?

Step 1. You have to have a ‘Leader’ user role. If you are registered as a ‘Subscriber’ then you may not post to the site. However, you can comment on posts and pages. If you are not designated a ‘Leader’ and you should be, (this includes all troop leaders, LHSU team members, and select council members) please contact the webmaster.

Step 2. There are 3 locations from which you can post to the website. Where you go depends upon what you want to post.

General and Leader Announcements can be posted from either of the ‘Post to the Website’ pages in the ‘My Profile’ drop-down menu or the ‘Leader Announcements’ drop-down menu. The category options will give you an idea of if you are in the right spot.

Leader Blogs are posted from the Leader Blog drop-down menu. This is where you offer or request assistance from other leaders, share ideas, and generally network and keep in touch with other leaders in your Troop Level.

There is additional help available on each of the ‘Post to the Website’ pages.

Where do I post pictures and otherwise brag about my troop and all the fun we are having?

This is done from the Bragging Room drop-down menu on the ‘Post a Brag’ page. There is additional help available within the ‘Post a Brag’ page.

    • The banner across the top links back to the homepage. Just click where it says “Lake Hills Service Unit –
      Member of Girl Scouts of Central Texas” Even then, it should not have signed you out when you retyped the website name. That is odd behavior for the site. Did you try just clicking on a link to see if you were still logged in? If you get a chance give that a try and let me know if you have to login again. I will need to fix that!
