The Logon Page
The ShipLogs.com Logon page allows access for both members and advertisers. In this tutorial, we'll cover member logon only. Your logon consists of your email address and the password you entered when you registered at ShipLogs.com.
For fast logon, you can check the "Remember Me" check box and ShipLogs.com will remember your logon credentials for the next time you logon.
CAUTION - Do not check this box if you are using a public terminal such as in a library or other public facility.
Default Home Page - Top
Once you logon, you'll be taken to the default Home Page. Near the top of the page, you'll find the Main Navigation Buttons. These buttons allow you to navigate through the various general functions of ShipLogs.com.
Below are the ShipLogs Folders. Notice that some of the tabs are highlighted. The highlighted tabs allow you to quickly identify where you are at all times. In this example, we are looking at the vessel named "Invictus". ShipLogs.com supports up to Five Vessels and defaults to the first vessel in your list.
The next default is the set of Ship Log Folders. Since most of the time, you'll be entering maintenance records, ShipLogs.com defaults to the Maintenance Folder. At this point you have several options. You can click on the underlined date to view and edit the maintenance record or you can choose to add a new record. In addition, you can choose to sort your records by category or date.
This theme continues throughout the website. Simply click on the tab of interest and you'll be moved to the supporting page. ShipLogs.com does all the orginazitional work for you.

These buttons are used for functions that are not affiliated with any particular vessel. Please remember always "LOGOFF" when you are finished with your session. This is important to prevent unauthorized access to your records.
