Enable applications on your SilkStart site to effectively display content and facilitate member involvement and interaction.
Use your SilkStart calendar to create and promote events online. You can maintain a central event calendar and a custom registration page for each individual event. View the Events User Guide for complete details and event customization options.
Enable a user-friendly directory to display profiles of your members, companies, or both. Contact SilkStart Support to customize the fields of your directory's search widget, and use your permissions grid to determine who can see your members' details.
Also referred to as Forums, you can create a group that your members may join. Once joined, group members may collaborate by posting discussion topics, pictures, holding polls, and more.
Your SilkStart blogs tool is ready at any time for you to begin writing content at yoursite.silkstart.com/blogs. This is useful for creating a stream of dated posts to highlight achievements, topics your members find interesting, or other information! To migrate from an existing blog on WordPress or Tumblr, you may choose to copy a desired number of your most recent blog posts to SilkStart and backdate them. With a healthy amount of historical content, you can start posting with SilkStart!
With articles, you can create a news feed to be shown on different parts of your site. Items posted at yoursite.silkstart.com/articles can be added to any custom page using the Article Slider or Article List widgets.
The area for documents on your SilkStart site is primarily designed for internal file sharing among admins, but can be configured to grant member access and upload privileges. Read more about determining and setting your permissions for documents in this article.
Use SilkStart's Team Page application to professionally showcase your team members and easily update their information. You can upload biographies, secondary hover photos, contact info, and even create multiple team pages to distinguish between categories.
Create a Sponsors page to professionally showcase your supporting partners, and sort them by tiers of your choice. Sponsors added to this page can also be displayed in a widget on any custom page. See: How to add sponsors to your sponsor widget
Contact SilkStart support to have the Directory Reviews application enabled on your network. Once enabled, star ratings can be made on any individual or company profile in the Directory.
