What information can people see in the Member Directory?
Non-members and others not logged into the site can only see limited information for each member.  This is to protect our members as well as to encourage non-members to become a part of our community.  Members who are logged in can see more information, such as e-mail address, phone number, etc.  If you are a member and would prefer to customize further who sees or doesn't see your information, simply log in, click View Profile (lower left corner below the menu), click Privacy, and select the appropriate buttons.

How do I log in to the website?
If you are an existing member of WIFD, your login ID is your e-mail address (the one through which you received the launch announcement).  If you have forgotten your password or to obtain a password for the new site, click on Forgot Password? located below the menu to the left.  It will guide you through the short process of setting a new password and log you in automatically.  Once you are logged in, you can update your profile, search the Member Directory, register for events, join groups, and enjoy other member benefits!

How do I update my profile?
Once you are logged in, you can update your membership profile by clicking on View Profile in the lower left corner below the menu.  There you can change your contact info, photo, membership level, e-mail subscriptions, and even customize who can see what information.
