Ansteorra Websites are the core mechanism we use to communicate crucial information about our activities, events, and officers.
We must follow the Society Webminister’s Handbook and
the Ansteorra Webminister’s Handbook
The guidelines here should help your tenure as a Webminister go smoothly.


Top Things!

  1. You must adhere to Society Policy and Kingdom Policy.
  2. Keep your Membership up-to-date and fill out this form when the expiration changes
  3. Feedback matters! Fill out Quarterly Reports by the 15th of Jan, Apr, Jul, and Nov.
  4. When in doubt, contact the Kingdom Webminister via email

Best Practices!

The primary goals of any Ansteorra website are to

  • inform people about SCA activities and groups
  • further the educational purposes of the SCA
  • create a positive experience for members and new folks
  • display content that upholds the SCA Core Values

DO include the following on your website:

  • Up-to-date
    • contact info for Officers (SCA Names and Officer Emails)
    • calendar of group activities (if applicable)
    • info about Kingdom events your group is hosting (if applicable)
    • Keep details publicly available on the website rather than publishing them in private social media spaces
  • Links to Policy, Resources, etc that your group uses (Ansteorra Library, and SCA Library)
  • Links to relevant Social Media sites

DON’T include the following on your website:

  • Content that strays from the primary goals above
  • Content that causes anger
  • Content that diverts people from study and recreation
  • Personal attacks
  • Content that furthers the aim of subgroups or factions within the Kingdom (this includes, but is not limited to, households). We want to support the entire community.

Handling Documents and Files

  • Store files, PDFs, documents in an official Google Drive and link/embed them on the site. We have more storage available through our Google Drives than through our Website Media Files, so this help keep sites healthy.

Ansteorra Webmin Handbook

Accounts you may need, depending on your role:

  1. WordPress account under ansteorra.org
    • This is what you will use to log into our websites and edit posts/pages/forms/etc
    • Accounts are created using a personal email address and a username that is firstinitiallastname

    • Resetting Passwords
      • Passwords can be given to you by the previous officer — when this happens, Reset The Password
      • Passwords can sometimes be reset by the Seneschal or Webminister for the domain, they need to visit admin.google.com to do this.
      • Passwords always be reset by emailing the Ansteorra Server Admin
  4. Admin Access to Email List
    • Most groups have an email list that is monitored by various people
    • Webministers are not necessarily required to moderate email lists
    • Talk to other Local Officers to see if you need this
    • Contact Kingdom Webminister to get/set login information
  5. FTP Login for databases or HTML sites
    • A very small number of Kingdom Webminister Deputies need this

  6. Check your email regularly for requests for content updates, quarterly reporting, or other communication from KWeb
