About Baily’s

Why are you no longer printing the Baily’s Hunting Directory?

We did not move away from the traditional format of red hardback editions lightly, conscious that Baily’s Hunting Directory had been published in that format since 1897. However, we faced the situation that it was no longer financially feasible to publish the Baily’s Hunting Directory in printed format. By placing the Directory on a Web site, we can make much more information available to far more people at a fraction of the cost. We very much hope that you enjoy this Web site and find it useful. If you would be interested in purchasing a shorter printed version of the current Baily’s Hunting Directory in the future, please register your interest by providing your full contact details in an email to info@bailyshuntingdirectory.com.

Is the content of Baily’s Hunting Directory the same as in previous printed editions?

It’s the same full content on all registered hunts but we are now able to update details as soon as we get them without waiting for the next annual edition.

How do I update my hunt details?

Updating your hunt details on Bailys Hunting Directory

If you are the Hunt Secretary or Master and are therefore able to authorise changes you will ned a PIN to make changes. The PIN is unique to your hunt.

Step 1 – Go to the bailyshuntingdirectory.com website and select “Edit your hunt” from the top right-hand corner menu:

 

Step 2 – Select your hunt from the list and type your PIN into the box provided:

 

Step 3 – Enter details into the fields provided for Contact Details, Hunt Details, Location, History, Privacy Settings, and Other Details. Where needed, scroll down to move onto other fields.  Once all details are updated, click the “Update Hunt Listing” button

Hunt Quarry – if your pack follows more than one type of quarry, you can select multiple options from the list by holding down the CTRL button. If you follow a type not in the list, select “Other” and add the extra one into any appropriate notes or comments field

Privacy Settings – these are used to control what people are able to see on the site as described in the table here:

  Public View Subscriber View
Standard Anyone landing on the site but not logged in can see the details stored in the Contact Details section but nothing else Anyone logged in as a valid subscriber will be able to see all details held
Hunt name only People landing on the site but not logged in can only see the hunt name n/a
Without addresses n/a People logged in as a valid subscriber can see the majority of details but any address information in specific address fields will be hidden from them

 

Step 4 – Update existing people/role combinations by selecting the relevant entry from the People Record list and then clicking the “Edit” button next to it:

There will be 1 entry for each combination of person and role – so if 1 person has 2 defined roles (eg Master and Secretary) they will have 2 entries.  These are further marked Current and Previous to help identify the correct combinations. This will open the Person Record popup with the stored details for that person in the role specified:

Update the details as necessary and click the “Update Person” button. Then click the “Update Hunt Listing” button. If the list of roles does not include the one you want to list, select “Other” and use the Role Notes field to capture the role title. When finished (either individual person or all relevant existing ones in the list) click the “Update Hunt Listing” button to transfer the information into the database

 

Step 5 – Add new people/role combinations by selecting the “Add New Person” option at the bottom of the hunt listing edit page:

This will open a blank copy of the Person Record form. Enter the details as appropriate and click the “Add Person” button, then click “Update Hunt Listing” to add the information

Note – it is important to click “Update Hunt Listing” after every new Person/Role combination you add to the list to make sure these are all saved correctly. The Person Record will not show in the selection list until this has been done

When you have made all the changes needed, you can navigate away from the page. We recommend that you go back into the Directory to check that the listing has been updated as expected. Getting back into the edit form will need you to go back to Step one.

Troubleshooting

If you have any problems that are not in the list below, or the normal response does not provide the answer, please contact us using any of the contact details on the website with as much information as possible so that we can help you. If possible, screen shots of what is happening as you work through the update would be really helpful

Problem Response
I don’t have a PIN for my hunt Your Hunt Secretary was given a PIN when the website was first set up, or when the hunt was listed, whichever happened first

–          If you are a new Hunt Secretary check with your predecessor for the PIN or anyone else who may have it (eg a Senior Master or Chairman has this in some cases)

–          If the PIN has been forgotten or lost, please contact Baily’s Hunting Directory for help or a reminder. We may ask to check with other hunt officers known to us to make sure you are the right person for us to release this to

–          Send the details to be updated or added to Baily’s Hunting Directory and we can make the update for you. This may take some time at busy points of the year

My hunt doesn’t appear on the list Check that there isn’t an older alternative name in use which needs to be changed, and contact Baily’s Hunting Directory to have a new hunt record created
I’ve updated the details in the main form but they have not been saved when I navigated away Make sure that when you entered the updates you clicked the “Update Hunt Listing” button because if you navigate away from the edit form without clicking this the new details will be lost
I’ve updated an existing Person Record but what appears in the selection list hasn’t changed Changes don’t appear in the selection list until you click “Update Hunt Listing” to transfer the information into the database
I’ve added a new Person Record but it isn’t showing in the selection list New Person Records don’t appear in the selection list until you click “Update Hunt Listing” to transfer the information into the database
I’ve added some new Person Records and when I’ve clicked “Update Hunt Listing” some of them have been added to the Person Record Selection list more than once You need to click “Update Hunt Listing” after every new Person Record you add to the list. If you have several new ones to add and wait until you’ve added them all, the transfer process can sometimes get confused and starts duplicating records. If this has happened please contact Baily’s Hunting Directory to get the duplicates removed from the database
When I go to the Directory I can only see the Hunt Name and no other details The Public View security marker is set to Hunt Name Only. To make contact details visible you will need to edit again and change this to Standard
When I go to the Directory I can see most of the details but addresses are hidden The Subscriber View security marker is set to Without Addresses. To make addresses visible you will need to edit again and change this to Standard
