How do I join?

Simply click here to register as a member. You can pay by PayPal, credit card, or bank transfer.

I paid my annual renewal six months ago but I want an account. Do I have to pay for the full year?

Absolutely not! Simply create a membership here and check ‘Pay by Bank Transfer’. Once your registration is complete, contact us with your details. We will check the date of your payment and manually confirm your membership.

I don’t want my profile to be public. Can I hide it?

Absolutely! If you’re a proud Federation member but don’t want a public profile, it’s easy to set your profile to private and it can be changed back at any time. Simply click ‘My Account‘, and from the menu on the left-hand side of this page, click ‘Privacy’. Here you can hide your profile, remove yourself from the directory, or both.

How do I add an event?

To create an event, log in and then go to ‘Add an Event’ in the Events menu. For more information about adding events, click here.

How do I edit my profile?

First, sign in, and then click ‘My Account’. On the page that appears, underneath your name and profile picture will be a link that says ‘View Profile’. Click this link, and when your profile loads, click the cog icon on the right-hand side of the page.

You will be able to edit your profile picture, cover image and biography, add social media links and view your events on your profile.

How do I submit an article to Member News?

Only Folk Federation members can submit to the Member News section. First, get your article ready to go. It’s easiest to type and edit your article outside the website, and then copy and paste the text into the form when you’re done.

First, sign in, and then go to ‘My Account’ -> ‘Add Member News‘. Fill out the title, excerpt, full article, tags and upload an image if you have one. Click ‘Submit’ to publish your article. It will immediately go live but the Committee reserve the right to edit or delete member news pieces they deem unsuitable for the site.

You can submit member news about anything you like – an album launch, a fundraiser, an obituary for a loved folkie, even to gather ideas for a new band name.

I’m trying to access a page and I keep getting the login screen or homepage. What’s going on?

It’s possible you’re trying to access a members-only page while logged out.

If you are logged out you will not be able to submit to Member News or access your Account settings.

If you are a paid member, and logged in, and you still can’t see a particular page, please contact us with the details.
