Site Enhancements Weather Links, User Account Tabs, Live Total Volunteer Stats

The web administrator has been quietly adding features to the website over the past couple of months and has lost a bit of his hair over the process.

Weather Links to WeatherUnderground:
Get the current weather conditions including past rainfall amounts before you head out. You can find these links next to the "Latest Trail Conditions" on the homepage and Trails page. The colored dots are clickable on the "Trails Overview" page. The weather links are also available on each trail page in the right-hand stats column.

User Account Enhancements - Member Discounts
GORC members can access a special members-only area if they are logged into the website located at http://gorctrails.co...s-and-discounts, however, a more user-friendly tab has been added in the "Account Info" area. Access this by clicking the upper-right blue button when you are logged in. This is also the default area you are taken to when you initially log in to GORCTrails.
Note: The tab will be "missing" if you are not a current paid GORC member.
Note: Your GORCTrails log in is NOT the same (unless you use the same id/pass combo) as your Forum user account. These are two separate log in systems not tied to each other.

User Account Enhancements - Digital Membership Card
Again, access is available via the "Account Info" area. Access this by clicking the upper-right blue button when you are logged in. This is also the default area you are taken to when you initially log in to GORCTrails. This Membership Card tab will generate a "membership card" that you can print (use the embedded print button so only the card prints) if you ever lose your official one in the paper packet we send out. Who knows, this might come in handy if you ever need to print a card out or prove your membeship at a retail shop or elsewhere.
Note: The tab will be "missing" if you are not a current paid GORC member.

Live Volunteer Stats
This one was a doozy to put together and it looks so simple! This little report block is tracking the 2015 year in total as volunteer hours are reported. It is only tracking trail design, construction and maintenance for each trail/park and not all the OTHER hours it takes to keep GORC operating.

It is a cumulative tally and it's working because it started at 301 total hours when it was initially set-up. It only checks the database every 6 hours to not load the server so when you submit your volunteer time you'll need to wait a day before you see it appear in the tally. You can find this block currently hiding in plain sight over in the Rides & Events area while we make sure it doesn't cause any issues.
