To access the Editing tools you will first need to login to the private side of the website using the Member Login link. Login credentials will be provided to you either by Clubessential, or the website Admin if you’re an Editor.
Upon login, you will arrive at the private member home page.
What you may edit and see on the private website will depend on your editing permissions.
Editors will be able to access an Editor Admin bar which is typically located in the top main navigation, or nested under My Club. Hover over the Admin bar for Editor Module tools such as: Articles, Calendar, Blast Email, Image Explorer, Document Manager, etc. Note: these options may vary depending on your club’s specifications for Editor Tools.
If you’re an Admin, you will see an Admin bar in the top left hand corner of the screen. Hover over the Admin bar to access full editing access to the website tools.
As an Admin, you will also notice a Clubessential logo in the right hand corner of the screen. Hover over this to access more options like Edit Home Page (public pages), Contact Clubessential, Client Resource Center, Impersonation Tools, and Logout.
In addition to the Admin bars for Editors and Admins, you will notice various Click to Edits throughout the website. Click to Edits allow you to manage content and imagery on the website by clicking on the Click to Edit to open the Editor tools. Within the Editor you can manage text, imagery, hyperlinks, and documents.
You will also find property settings for modules or plugins like: slideshows, photo albums, and accordions on page. Where these modules are placed, there will be a properties icon to the top right of the module. Click the properties icon to open property settings for these modules to make changes.
The Content Editor is denoted by a Click to Edit button. If you see a Click to Edit Button, this means that this is a content or image block that you can edit using our rich content editor. Simply click on the button to open the Editor.
You will find the Editor in various locations throughout the website, and it is the same Editor; which means you can add and edit different places of content in the same way. And, once you’ve mastered it, you’ll be able to use it throughout.
You can find the Editor on: web pages, inside accordion sections, blast emails, directory disclaimer, statement header and footer, calendar event flyers, calendar custom notifications, and event manager emails.
This editor allows you to personalize almost every section of the website with your content, imagery, hyperlinks, and documents.

The Image Explorer works together with the Content Editor, Slideshows, and Photo Albums to allow you to add images to pages or to add images to slideshows and photo albums for a collection of photos.
In order to add a photo to the Content Editor, Slideshows, or Photo Album you must first upload the image to the Image Explorer.
Within the Image Explorer, you can add as many photos as needed and create folders to organize your images. If an image is deleted from the Image Explorer it will be removed from the website forever and it must be uploaded again to be used on the website.
To add images to pages or areas in which you have the Editor, open the Editor and use the insert image icon to add images to the content block. For detailed instructions on this, please visit this page.
All slideshows and photo albums are tied to folder(s) within the Image Explorer, meaning you manage the images tied to slideshows and photo albums via the Image Explorer.
You can change which folder(s) is associated with a slideshow or album by opening the slideshow/album properties and clicking Edit Categories for this Gallery. This will allow you to select and deselect various folders within the Image Explorer.
