How the site works:
Once you choose a name, you will receive a temporary password.
Go to the login page (name will be provided).
LOGIN! Once in, you will see the Cabin Owner's screen, select "go
to my rates page".
ENTER DATA! Enter rates, select page colors, enter
free-form text or descriptions, and check off the dates which are "taken". When you check them off on
this page, it tells the program to X them out on the page you publish.
You will be able to maintain this page to explain special conditions, special rates, etc., and you can cross out
days that are takent.
In addition, you can enter one line of data that appears on the front page of BigBearCabin.com with your special
message, if any. You can change this any time you log into the "rates and dates" page.
In addition, you can view statistics, or go to the upload screen to send pictures and information for entry to
your webpage (we do this).
DEMO! Check out whether the colors and appearance are suitable, and make sure
that the right dates are X'd out. This is your chance to make sure that the info is correct.
If not correct, select the button to go back to the ENTER screen.
If correct, select the button to PUBLISH.
PUBLISH! This is the page which the prospective renter will see. The customer
will see the available dates at a glance, and can check off the ones that fit in with their plans. The dates you
indicated as taken are X'd out, and the customer does not have to worry about whether the cabin is
free those days.
Everyone can immediately see what's available, select dates, and fill in a form with contact information -- name,
address, email, etc. The program ensures that the user at least enters an email address, so that you can follow
The page you have created will be on our cognate site, http://big-bear-cabin.com/yourid.htm
When you pay for your listing, your cabin will appear on the main BigBearCabin.com webpage, and your web page will
be created on your own subdirectory.
The front page is a subdirectory of BigBearCabin.com with the name of your cabin (http://BigBearCabin.com/yourid)
PAY! You don't have to pay for the listing unless you are satisfied it will
work for you. A bill will be sent after a while, and you may decide to pay it. If not, no obligation and we part
as friends; if you decide to stay on the site, Welcome!
Prospective customers can contact you three ways: 1) Signup sheets, which are targeted at open days only;
2) Email communications which shield your real email to deter spammers; 3) Telephone number you may
list on your site.
No links to other websites,
for example where your cabin is already listed, are permitted.
