Key Concepts

Public website

Sometimes referred to as the Frontend, the public website is what both anonymous users and authenticated members see when they show the website of a club.

Intranet

Sometimes referred to as the Frontend, the intranet is a subpart of the public website whose pages and content are available solely for authenticated members.

Private pages and content may be defined anywhere in the website of the club. A few pages are common to all clubs. These are the LionsBase-related pages with for instance the list of members or the committee with a selector for showing previous or future committees.

Roles in Intranet

Once authenticated, members become automatically a role as “member of their club” which lets their club webmaster target content at them solely.

If the member is part of a committee at any level (club, zone, region, district or multi-district), he becomes a corresponding role. For committee members, two different roles exist at every level. One for regular members of the committee (prefixed by “[C]” in the list available for user groups for access restrictions) and one for members having a special position in the committee (prefixed by “[CE]” in the list of available user groups for access restrictions).

Management website

Also known as the Backend, the management website is accessible to authorized members by typing https://lionsbase.<yourdomain>/typo3/ into the address bar of your browser (where <yourdomain> stands lionsclub.ch, lions.at, …).

Please read chapter Logging into LionsBase to learn how to start managing your club’s website and Lions information.
