Club Websites user guides

Welcome to the resource centre for the RQ club websites. The website solution was created to offer a low cost and flexible website solution which will allow a QLD race club to have a great, and easy website to grow their business. 

If you are interested in using the RQ club website solution, or have any other questions, please reach out to us here. If you already have a club site using our old system, we will be changing them over to the new website shortly, and passing on the details to manage your new website moving forward. 

Our management system is simple and easy to use, and can be managed by yourself, or an external marketing company you engage. 

Below are some user guide videos to help you manage your club website and become familar with the Umbraco CMS system. Please click here to let us know if you have any other questions you have, so we can make these user guides better for the future.
