Hello  ,

this website is provided for free for any shambhala center or group worldwide.

  • it integrates fully with the SDB (event list , center info etc… coming from the SDB)
  • Easy registration with Shambhala Account (no need to fill the form for users and no need to process the incoming registration for the administrator)
  • Create pages visible to members only,
  • Multilingual WP admin interface (set to your center language) & multilingual front end (registrations, event info etc…)
  • Archives and study material embedded when authenticating (see here) . The user can see all past programs attendance , registration information (pay more link), visualize auto-responder emails. For each program , you can add via the SDB, audio , video and text files that are visible only to people who have attended the program.
  • See all past programs that happened in your center since today (in the Library).
  • Set up in the SDB open staff positions (MI , cook , finance , coordinator, ROTAs etc…) and let people sign-up themselves with their Shambhala Account here. One can only sign up for position in one owns center or affiliated center.
  • it is responsive (works on smart phones , tablets and google glasses ?)
  • You can hide events from your listing that have pre-requisites. If the person logs in , then only allowed programs are shows and registration permitted.
