D. Common problems

[View/ Hide All]

a. Unable to submit the sign-up form

You will be unable to submit the sign-up form in the following cases:

  1. You have left one or more form fields blank.
  2. You have not retyped the email address correctly.
  3. You have provided a password that is less than 8 characters long.
  4. You have not retyped the password correctly.

In all such cases, the form fields in error will be double-highlighted with a red background and an error message next to the field. Please review the form field carefully, correct any highlighted errors and then submit the form.

b. Confirmation text does not match

If the confirmation text typed does not match the text shown, the sign-up information will not be accepted and the sign-up form will load again with an error indicating that the confirmation text did not match. Please review the confirmation text carefully, type it in the appropriate form field and then re-submit the sign-up form.

c. Confirmation email not received

It usually takes under 5 minutes for the sign-up confirmation email to be sent out. If you do not receive the confirmation email within this timeframe, please check the following:

  1. Check the email address provided carefully to ensure that it is correct. Sometimes @gmail.com gets typed as @gamil.com or @gmial.com, making the email address invalid. If this is the case, please sign-up again with the correct email address.
  2. Sign in to your email account to ensure that it is active. If your email account is not active, contact your email provider to activate the email account.
  3. Check that your email account has not run out of its storage quota. If this is the case, please clean up some of the emails from your account and then follow the instructions below for Forgot Password.
  4. Check your Junk or Spam folder to see if the confirmation email landed there (although this should be very rare). If it did, move the email to the Inbox and add the sender email address to your Contacts so that future emails are delivered correctly to the Inbox.
d. Forgot password provided at the time of sign-up

If you have forgotten your password, simply go to the Forgot Password page, provide the email address you provided at sign-up and submit a request to recover the password.

An email will be sent to the provided email address with instructions on recovering the password. Follow the instructions to recover the password and sign in again.

e. Cannot sign-up due to the error "The email address you have provided is already registered"

This error indicates that someone has already signed up with the specified email address. If you do not recall signing up yourself, simply use instructions for Forgot Password above to generate a new password for signing up.

Security note: Sign up completes only after a user has confirmed their email address by following the instructions included in the confirmation email sent to their email address. Further, users can sign in only after completing the sign up. This ensures that if someone (unknowingly, mistakenly or maliciously) attempts to sign up using an email address to which they do not have access, they will never be able to sign in because the sign up process, which depends on following steps outlined in the sign up confirmation emails, will never have been completed. Therefore, the aforementioned error will occur only if you share your email account with someone else and the other person(s) has (have) registered with that email address.

User Profile

bg000

Map user profile fields into content including picture and all other text fields

For the user profiles, bring the LinkedIn URL to a more prominent position and make that field mandatory with a checkbox under it "I do not have a LinkedIn profile" - if that checkbox is selected then the URL field allows blank to be saved. Same concept can be used with other fields also that are desired to be provided by the user - in some cases may be with just "Later" as the reason to allow blank submissions. If this is done in the user profile itself, then the registration for any expo is a click-thru with no extra information needed.

Add a location field and a headline to the user profile. Will be used when mapping that to the faculty and councils.

Add the following optional fields in the user profile for:

  • I am passionate about...
  • Topics of Interest (Hashtags)
  • Competencies (separated by commas)
  • Hashtags that describe you

Hashtags

bg000

Applied to:

bg777
  • Product Pages
  • Content Pages (Sites, Pages, Pictures, All Others)
  • Company Pages
  • Brand Pages
  • User Profiles
  • More

Sets of tags

bg777

Every next level uses the previous level

  • Site/Expo tags - only takes unique site codes as hashtags (ignores all else or does not allow anything else) filters to the specific site - if blank then search on that site will give no results; this is automatically applied as the first tag whenever a search is done - but this does not show up on the screen; give a checkbox next to this one captioned “ALL” - that will then make that open for search on all sites in that room (same as it does now) - so in effect it is unique site code or all that makes it searchable on any site
  • Everyone - Public for non-account users - Topics, Owner, Brands, Authors, Tracks
  • Account - Private for my account users only - only for intra-org language, mainly for functional use
  • Unit - for my notesroom only
  • Admin for admins only - for organizing content

Hashtags include Keywords

bg777

Hashtags include Keywords by removing spaces. Consider if how the keywords will behave in this case - possibly the keywords will also be assumed as hashtags by removing spaces and adding the hash-sign before them. So keywords will also be deemed as hashtags itself.

If this is done then that will be useful in presenting search triggers in menu and HTML syntax.

Bulk Edit Tags

bg777

This will help to keep hashtags harmonized across and will make it easy to adapt organizing the content and products at large - both for public, private and admin purposes. 3 columns:

  • Add - add to existing set
  • Delete - if there then delete it else ignore
  • Replace - replace all tags; the entire set


Triggers

bg777
  • Search bar and search results page
  • Menus - hashtags trigger that search - useful to plot topics in the menu and that will always automatically reflect the search results - will also allow multiple hashtags (divided by space) - that will allow multiple hashtags to be true for the search
  • Syntax and code to embed in the HTML - will trigger search with one or multiple hashtag search (much like the menu)
  • Publish public hashtags on the product pages and content pages (optional yes/no) - clicking any one of those triggers a search of that

Use Cases & Benefits

bg777

Makes search on sites more specific - it restricts pockets of content that can be shown as the site code is applied by default as the first hashtag in all searches and then the results are filtered only after that

Product attributes - role of classification councils can be extended to define hashtags alongside item categories to be used as finer filters; (we will publish these appropriately both on a classification page and also on product pages)

Topics - we will not need to any work on making, curating and updating topic pages across all expo or even on sites as these will automatically show those collections from across tracks

Filter by author - alongside the author names will can provide an icon with the syntax that triggers that search for more work by the author - similar to topics this will save significant effort on an ongoing basis

Our Blog - same as topics this will ease the reading threads for any user

Support Agent

bg000

Users providing support to any premium member need to be added to the member account without being charged. The support agent might be a Hotlink employee or a partner.

Member will not pay for an additional user (it can practically double the cost of service for a single user account)
