Our multiple platforms & venues

CPsquare has grown incrementally over the years: tools and platforms have been added and dropped. This page lists the current sites/tools that we are using. The sites that require an account have a different password and account name since they are not integrated.

Web Crossing

  • URL: http://conversations.cpsquare.org
  • Function: our discussion site and repository for files that are not shared with the public. This is an online forum where we interact with other each and access members-only content. This is the site which people usually mean when they say "see you in CPsquare." Your firstname lastname is your account ID on this platform. You are provided credentials to access this site when you register for an event or join the community at http://admin.cpsquare.org
  • More about this platform and how to access it: CPsquare:Webcrossing account help

Wild Apricot

  • URL: http://admin.cpsquare.org
  • Function: member and event registration, which provides access to other sites. It's not necessary to use this site very frequently. Your email address is the account ID and your password on the admin platform is independent of the one you use on Web Crossing.
