Problem solved. The Stake Clerk added me as an out of unit leader. I can now access my home ward website and my student ward website.

Where did he do that? Stake MLS, Ward MLS, existing LUWS or is there a feature in beta I'm missing?

Yes, that is nothing new. What about beta.lds.org?

While in Beta

Postby dscbigeagle85-p40 » Wed Oct 13, 2010 3:36 pm

I am glad to see the new Beta up and going, but it is still a beta. Does anyone know of an easy way to do a nice photo directory for my bishop (again a YSA ward) without using the beta? I did one using Access in the past and will again if I have to, but I am hoping someone on here has an easier answer.

The site has moved beyond the "beta" state to the "new" state. The site is quite functional, and the data is guaranteed to be preserved. So I guess I'm wondering why you would go to all the work of figuring out an alternate way when the capability is available right now. I don't see any reason why you wouldn't use the new.lds.org/directory as it stands now. That is the easiest answer of all.

Thank you for your quick response Alan. I have started importing my wards pictures into the website but can't seem to print a photo directory. Is that possible in the new state or are we waiting for that?

That's a good point, which I should have remembered before replying. I'm sure that the ability to print the photo directory is coming "soon", but there is no clear indication of when that will be, beyond this post:

It was a lovely day today in the Salt Lake Valley, almost like summer, but I think we'd have to acknowledge that the "hopefully by the end of summer" timeframe has passed.

So if you need a solution fairly quick, you'll have to look at some of the other solutions mentioned in this thread.

Well until that is running I don't see any point in using the new website as it is still in it's infant stage. I will have to find another solution until this problem is solved. Thank you for your help Alan.

I printed a very simple photo directory using the "manage photos" link. This brings up all the photos, one page at a time with only the members name. I then did a screen capture, pulled the photos up in Photoshop, edited them where necessary, and then printed them. It wasn't nearly as labor intensive as it sounds and it produced a very minimal photo directory.

Unfortunately my Bishopric also requests phone numbers and addresses. I am in the process of creating a new way of doing it that I am hoping will be convenient, and I will be more then happy to share if it works as well as it does in my head.
