Using this site

The site has several kinds of information written or selected to be of use to the residents of Ponderosa Hills:

Main page

The main page has many small announcements and news snippets, sometimes with links to more information. The announcements are in reverse chronological order, i.e. the most recent one will be at the top. This page will be regularly updated. Registered residents can leave comments to any of the items on the main page.

Update notification

You can re-visit on a regular basis, or ask to be notified of changes.
We support two notification systems: RSS and Email.

For email, click on the “By Email” link at the top of the page. On the next page, enter your email address. An email will be sent to that address, from where you confirm your subscription. You will not receive more than 1 email per day and can unsubscribe at any time.
Our email notification system is provided by Google Feedburner.

The RSS feed is available from the RSS image (RSS feed icon) and “By RSS” link on top of each page. For more information on RSS, or how to use it, check out one of these two sites: RSS explained the Ophrah way or Getting started with RSS.

Main page items can be filtered by category or date, using the calender or category links on the left pane, or can be searched using the search box with the magnifying glass on the left pane.

Specialised Subject pages

Specialised subject pages can found by clicking on the links at the top of the page. These pages tend to be more static in nature, and significant changes will be announced on the main page.

The categories links in the left pane will filter the front page announcements for that category.

Useful Links

Useful links are listed on the right pane and are sorted by category. Additional links are available from the “More Links” menu at the top of each page.

A powerful search engine will search pages and “posts”. Just type your search string in the box next to the magnifying glass in the left pane and then click on that magnifying glass.


This site is open to read to anyone.
