AboutThisSite / UsingThisSite


To explore this site, start at the left-hand sidebar and click on an area of interest. Note that you can click on both the section and subsection headings at the left. The side bar is present on all pages of the site, so you can jump around without going back to the home page.

Viewing the site is fairly self evident, but introductions to some functions follow. Please read the Terms of Use.

Browser Compatability

This site has been tested with the major browers for Windows XP and Mac OS 10 including MS IE 7, FireFox 2, Safari 3, Opera, and OmniWeb. All recent, major browsers appear to work with it.

Microsoft IE version 5.1.7 running under Mac OS 9.2.2 Classic requires specific options settings to operate properly with this site. See MSIE517Mac922 for details.

PDF Files

Most PHSNE documents are saved as pdf files on this site. Your browser will either display the document in the browser window or offer to download it to your hard drive depending on the configuration. If you have trouble with a simple click of the mouse, doing a right click (control click on a one button Mac mouse) will present a menu of options.

In addition to built-in support in newer OSs, Adobe reader is a free program available for Windows and the Mac to display pdf documents. You may download a it from www.adobe.com.

Alternatives to Adobe Reader exist. On Mac OS X, the free built-in Preview application will display pdf documents. In the Windows world, the lightweight, free application Foxit will display pdf files.


The site presents videos of various PHSNE activities via the PHSNE YouTube Channel (there may be a few exceptions). An embedded player is provided at this site, or you may go to YouTube and view the video there. In either case, the YouTube site is serving the video.

We do this because the YouTube site is capable of handling video bandwidth much better than the PHSNE web server. Second, we would like to encourage PHSNE members to post video to YouTube for viewing by other members—especially those who can not regularly attend meetings and participate locally.

If you could not play the YouTube video on a page here using the embedded player, the most likely reason is that you do not have the latest Flash Player (also called Shockwave) installed on your system. If you have not installed the Flash Player, and wish to view this video, please go to www.adobe.com and download and install it.

Another possibility is that you have disabled scripts in your browser and the java scripting language used by YouTube can not run. If so you should check your browser documentation/help files for instructions on enabling scripts. Sometimes you can enable scripts on a site by site basis if you so desire.

If you have difficulty playing a video from the PHSNE site, please go to www.youtube.com/phsne to locate and play the video there. The YouTube site tests your browser setup and can detect some playback problems and suggest corrective steps.


You may search the site by entering search words in the search box at the right of the top site banner then clicking on the "Search" button. Once you do a search, additional help will appear at the bottom of the search results to aid in more advanced searches. Note: At present the "Search" Button does not show on all versions of IE. Usually, if you just type the "return" key the search will take place.

History and Recent Changes

To see the history of changes to a specific page you may click on "History" link at the top of each page. To get a listing of recent changes to the entire site, click on the "Recent Changes" link in the top site banner.

RSS News Feeds

Sitewide RSS feeds have been disabled due to a issue with the feed. Not sure when it will get fixed.

If your browser is "feed aware" it will automatically detect the RSS feed for the site and flag it's presence. See your browser documentation for details of how it works. If your browser detects a news feed it will generally show a special icon in the URL field or tool bar of the browser. IE 7, Firefox (1.5 and above), Opera 9, and Safari detect and support news feeds.

You may also wish to use a dedicated application or a web based news feed aggregator site. Newsgator offers a web based news aggregation service for the desktop and mobile platforms as well as the FeedBurner application for Windows and NetNewsWire for Apple's OS X. These services and applications are free for non-commercial use. Google offers the Google Reader web based desktop and mobile news aggregator. Yahoo provides news feed aggregation via My Yahoo user customizations. There are many other products available as news feed readers. These are just the ones your site administrator happened to know about.

You may also obtain an RSS feed, of all recent changes to the site, by clicking on RSS to see a feed. Save the resulting URL in your news reader or RSS enabled browser.
