A Guide to Registering on the Los Claveles Owners Website


Registration is straightforward providing that you follow the guidelines on the Registration Page.

In particular the advice to use a simple username with no Uppercase characters and no spaces or periods etc is very sound. A simple username is easy to remember - you can easily forget that you need a Capital letter or a space.  The system is Case Sensitive so a simple error like that will prevent you logging in successfully.  The username must be unique to the system so a UserName of 'john' or 'jane' is sure to result in a 'User Name Exists' error now that the website has over 1600 registrations.

The password MUST be at least eight (8) characters long and contain at least one Uppercase Alpha (Aa-Zz) character and at least one Numeric (0-9) character.  It cannot contain anything other than Alpha Characters and Numeric Characters.  A password not meeting those requirements will be rejected and result in an Error Message below the password box.

You must make sure that the EMail Address that you register is correct before clicking the 'Submit' button.  The system will send the activation Email to that Address so if it is not yours you will not receive it.  The system does check to see if the EMail Address is correctly formatted and that the Domain Part (the bit after the '@' sign) exists.  Please be aware that once an Email Address is registered it cannot be used again in a second Registration Attempt should you think that the first registration failed.

Registration also requires that you complete the mandatory fields (marked with *) of your Contact Details.  These includes Full Name Details, Postal Address Details, and Telephone Details.  This is to enable the posting of important Communications and Documents.

Once you have clicked on the 'Submit' button your registration is submitted to the Site Moderator who will check the validity of your registration.  When validation is complete a notification email will be sent to the email address used in your registration.  This process can take up to 48 hours so please check your your Inbox/Junk/Spam folders on a regular basis.
