About Chapter Pages

Each Surfrider Foundation chapter has its own page on Beachapedia. The chapter pages contain data which is used in various sections of the site, including the "Surfing Areas" pages of the State of the Beach report State Reports and to populate data for the participating chapter map on the Blue Water Task Force page.


Most (if not all) editing of chapter pages can be done via a simple form. When you are on the page you want to edit, simply clock the "Edit With Form" link (next to the "Edit" link at the top of the page). You will see a series of fields which can be filled out for information like:

  • chapter website
  • email address
  • twitter account
  • facebook page
  • facebook group ID
  • blog URL
  • address of the blog's RSS feed.
  • short description of the chapter and its activities

Any fields which are left blank will result in that information not being displayed.

If the chapter participates in Blue Water Task Force testing, there is a box to check which will make the chapter show up on the map on the BWTF page.

There is also a box below for any additional text that the chapter would like to be displayed on the chapter page. This additional text will not show up in the State of the Beach pages.
