First and Foremost: Don’t Panic.

Ansteorra Websites are the core mechanism we use to communicate crucial information about our activities, events, officers, and announcements.
Our websites must adhere to the policies set forth in the Society Webminister’s Handbook, and the guidelines here should help your tenure as a Webminister go smoothly.


  1. Your website is a central place for information and must adhere to Society Policy.
  2. Keep your Membership up-to-date and fill out this form when the expiration changes
  3. Feedback matters!
  4. When in doubt, contact the Kingdom Webminister

If you haven’t read it already,
please read the Society Webminister’s Handbook.

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)
  • Up-to-date calendar of group activities (if applicable)
  • Up-to-date info about Kingdom events your group is hosting (if applicable)
    • When possible, keep Kingdom event details 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.

If there is any concern that specific material may be questionable, contact the Kingdom Webminister.

According to Kingdom Policy, Local Webministers must make a written report to Kingdom Webminister on a regular basis.

In Ansteorra, we consider your website to be your written report. Kingdom Webminister monitors websites regularly.

Occasionally, Kingdom Webminister will send out pulse surveys as a supplement — Please Fill Them Out Every Time.

If you have problems, questions, projects you’d like to take on, or any feedback, please don’t hesitate to reach out to the Kingdom Webminister.

Ansteorra is migrating to complete adoption of WordPress for our Websites. This means that at a minimum you’ll need the following:

  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
    • Make Sure To Edit Your Display Name to be your SCA name
    • (This is different from an account with wordpress.org)
    • (This is different from an account with wordpress.com)
  2. Admin Access to the site that you’re responsible for (granted by KWeb or another admin)

Accounts you may need, depending on your role:

  • Official Gmail Account
    • All group-level webministers should have an official Gmail account
    • 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
  • 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
  • FTP Login for databases or HTML sites
    • A very small number of Kingdom Webminister Deputies need this
    • This is usually needed if you are migrating from HTML to WordPress
    • Contact Kingdom Webminister if you think you need login information
