RAG Website

RAG Private Members Area

Please click on link below to access the Private RAG Members Only Area.

You MUST first ensure you are logged in to the blog using link on right side of this page or the tab above BEFORE you click on the link.

Once you are in the Private Members Only Area you can add new posts or responses to previous posts by scrolling down to the bottom of the page.

Posts in the Private Members Only Area are visible only to the logged in RAG members whereas posts on the main blog are publically visible.




Adding categories to posts on the RAG Blog (www.roslistonastronomy.uk)

Please could I remind all members that, when adding new posts to the Rosliston Astronomy Group blog, please ensure that you choose at least two categories for the post before you save it.

You should add the following two categories:

The first is your name – choose this from the contributor list – if your name is not there you can add it in the box below the category list.

The second category should be the nature of the content of the blog itself (eg. “Astrophotography – deep sky”) from the choice available in categories. If this is not covered in the categories available please contact me using the RAG contact page on www.roslistonastronomy.org.uk to say what category you need creating.

It is acceptable to add more than one category for the nature of the content of the blog if appropriate to the post.

Please ensure that the category “Uncategorized” is NOT ticked/selected – this will default to being selected if you save a draft of the blog post without choosing categories for it!



Hi, I know I’m an old so’n’so but is it possible to have the old calendar of the club reinstated?

I don’t own a smart phone or any of the “modern” devices on the computer, just the basic stuff so I am unable to “download” anything in the formats that  are given.




A new way of uploading photos into your blogs so that readers can open them in a new page and increase the size of the image by clicking on them

There is now a new way to add images to users’ posts on this website so that readers can click on them to open them in a new page and increase their size.

The picture below has this functionality. Try clicking on it to see what happens.

To do this with your own posts, when you upload a photo file on the “add media” page, in “attachment display settings” choose link to “media file”. I would also recommend you choose the full resolution option during this file upload process.

The picture below is a screenshot from a website that gives more information on the WP Featherlight plugin and how this works. http://seehowsupport.com/wordpress/content-editor/click-to-enlarge-images-in-wordpress/
