Updating your Group Page

How to update your Group page and contact information

If you have been given the rights to do so, you can update your Landcare Group's information by clicking on the edit tab in the green bar when viewing your Group Page/s.

Each Group Page is actually a folder that can contain sub folders and other content. By default new groups are setup with sub folders for News; Volunteer Activities; Events; Projects; and a Photo Album. However you can add more folders or remove the default ones if they don't suit your needs. You can also hide folders by making them Private if you don't want to delete them but are not sure if you need them just yet.

The first thing you should do is make sure that your Group's main properties are all correct.

When logged in, click on the Edit tab in the green bar at the top of the page. You will see a grey drop-down box at the top which begins with 'default'  but you can choose from the following properties to add detail to your group.


Title - Usually the name of your group. This will show on maps and searches and is the primary way that your groups will be found and identified.

Description - This will show just below the Group Title on your main page and will also show on search results. A paragraph or sentence is useful here.

Body Text - You can write as much as you like on the main page about your group. This is rich formatted text and can contain images and formatting if desired.

Category - Groups can be categorised. This list of categories may change but is currently (Landcare; Urban Landcare; Coast Care; Friends; Community; Rivercare; Environment; Government; Other)

Organistion Type - You can specify what type of Organisation you are (Network; Group; Junior / School; Sub Organisation; Committee; Agency; CMA; Local Government; Other)

Image/Logo - Upload a Logo for your page. This should be a PNG or JPG image, generally no larger than 300px high or wide.

Image Caption - The caption will be displayed below your Logo

Associated Facebook Page - You can specify your Facebook Page ID. This is NOT the full URL - if your Facebook page URL is https://www.facebook.com/mygroup then put 'mygroup' here. Note that this only works with Facebook Pages, not personal profiles. Once you have done this, a feed of your Facebook posts will be inserted on your Landcare page.(NB if your page has a serial number as part of its URL eg https://www.facebook.com/pages/mygroup/123456789012, enter the serial number instead of "mygroup").

Associated Twitter ID - You can specify a Twitter ID. This is not the full URL - just your Twitter ID. When working a feed of your tweets will be placed on your Landcare page.


A set of fields relating to your Group's address and contact information. This will be displayed on your Group home page. This is also where you can link your Group page to your website if you have one.


You can use the mapping tools to locate your Group on the Gateway maps. See Making use of maps for more information.
