eWeb is the NetForum web application used by the public, members, non-members or prospects. The eWeb application is generated by the CMS tool in NetForum. The letter e in eWeb means external.
The NetForum eWeb site uses a div-based layout and bootstrap framework to allow the site to be more responsive. This allows for optimal display on various devices (PC, tablet, or phone).
eWeb Home Page
The eWeb Home Page is divided into several sections.
The top-navigation bar gives you access to many areas within eWeb including the My Account page, Member Directory, Online Store, etc.
There are several areas on the eWeb site that do not require a user to log in to view the information. However, any section that deals specifically with a user or an organization will require users to log in. Some of these sections are My Account, Member Directory, and attempting to purchase items from the Online Store.
When you attempt to access an area of eWeb that requires a user to be logged in, you will be taken to the Sign In or Create an Account page.
Users who already have a NetForum account will use the Login fields to log in. Users who do not have a NetForum account can create an account from this page as well.

- Enter the email address associated with your NetForum account in the Email field.
- Enter the password associated with your NetForum account in the Password field.

You will be taken to the My Profile page.
Note: Clicking the Remember Me check box will store your log in information in your browser. This will automatically log you into eWeb each time you attempt to access an eWeb page that requires login.
The NetForum eWeb site also features a convenient process for resetting your password should it be forgotten.

Note: If you wait longer than 15 minutes, you cannot access the page that allows you to change your password. See Forgot Password - Technical Information for more on the expiration of the link. To have NetForum send you a new link, start again at step one.
