How to "Friend" on the OSL Web Site

Okay, we have a more "connectional" web site, but how do we use it? First quick tip: you can "friend" someone in the Order who keeps an account on our web site. of course, you can "friend" them on Facebook too (if you both have a Facebook account) but this feature on our web site is strictly within the community. It's personal, private, familial.

To "friend" a sibling, first login with your personal username and password. If you don't have a personal username for the web site, contact the  the webscribe to get one.  Next, look for the sibling you want to "friend" by using the "Show/Find Members" selection from the user menu on the left-hand side. You can search for the member by clicking on "Search Users" (it's in the upper right-hand corner of the tan-colored area.) Once you find the sibling you want to connect to, click on their name. You'll be taken to their profile page where you'll see their photo (if they've uploaded a photo.)  Above their picture are four buttons. The far right-hand button is labelled "Connections." Click this button and "Request a connection." Connections are what our system calls "friends" in Facbook parlance.

Why should you "friend" someone? It's convenient to have quick access to members of your chapter, or your prior, or the General Officers.

OSL Forum Help

Ok, you need help. Let's see what I can say.

First, this is a private forum. You, as a member, can subscribe to any thread via email or RSS, but you're expected to keep the contents private. This is not the cyber chapter. Everyone here is a vowed member of the Order. That means we can discuss things and perhaps vote on things that are necessarily kept "within the family" of the Order.

The board is pretty straight-forward.

You can start a topic any time.

"Announcements" come from the web scribe (Br. Rog) or from the General Council.

There are a lot of available tiny smiley-face icons. Let your cursor "hover" over the icon you want and a helpful tip will appear telling you the code you must type to make that icon appear in your message.

If you're just stick, call Br. Rog at 571-268-2887 or email him at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
