+Using some of the links on the
portal don't go anywhere. Is it being "blocked"?
first thing to check is if a pop-up blocker is the problelm.
Check if the Google or Yahoo browser toolbar has been installed.
The toolbars have Popup Blocker options/functionalities. If the Popup
Blocker is enabled, then popups are blocked, thus resulting in the
error message. To resolve this, either disable the Popup Blocker
if it is enabled, press the 'CTRL' key, while clicking on the icons to
launch the popup.
Also, pop-up blocker has been added to newer versions of Internet
Explorer and is automatically turned on. It will let you know when
certain windows are blocked and then allow you to view them. But in
order to keep you from having to allow a lot of different entries you
can do the following to allow all tuolumnecounty.ca.gov pages to load.
In Internet Explorer, click on the Tools menu -> Internet
Options -> Privacy tab -> Pop-Up Blocker ->
Settings button .
In the field where it says "Address of website to allow" put
"tuolumnecounty.ca.gov", without the quotation marks. It will add an
entry that will allow all of the various areas of our site to appear on
your screen, including maps, PDFs, and so on.
+How do I tell if I'm on the
Portal or one of the other sites?
header across the top of the page has a gold bar on the left side that
contains the name of the portal or site you are visiting. In the case
of the Portal it will read "Portal Home Page".
+How Can I Print Pages from the
of the pages have a print button in the upper right corner. For those
that do not, use the Print Preview
Got to File > Print Preview
then if the page is going to be broken horizontally, you may want to go
to Page Set Up and change from a portrait to a landscape
+Why do I have to scroll
sideways to see all of the page?
Portal is set so that a screen resolution of 1024 by 768 or larger,
will give the best results. If you are using a setting of 800 by 600 or
smaller, horizontal scrolling will be unavoidable.
+Do you have a method for
searching the portal for items of interest?
in the upper right hand corner is a search box. Type your search
term(s) in the box and then click on the button to its right.
+What is the "My Links"? It
doesn't seem to do much.
Links is much like a "Favorites" section on your internet browser. It
will store links to pages to make returning to them easier. But, it
only works for those that have a sign-in name and password. the ability
to Sign-in is not yet available, but is planned for the near future.
+What's up with the "LIVING",
"WORKING", "VISITING", " BUSINESS", "GOVERNMENT", and "EMERGENCY"
across the top of the opening page?
are part of the taxonomy, or organization, of the Portal. They provide
access to information according to the interests of someone Living in
Tuolumne County, or Working here, or Visiting us, and so on.
+How can I offer suggestions
for the website?

for the Portal. If your suggestion or comment is
for a specific department you can go to Contact Us
page, or the bottom of this page and email the department directly.
+How will the County Portal
help during an emergency?

and will have a tab, "ATTENTION-EMERGENCY", that will be attached to an
"Emergency Notification" page containing an "Emergency Incident Report"
with all available information regarding the emergency. The page will
also have links to maps and other information regarding the emergency.
+Why do I need to have
"Cookies" enabled on my computer, in order to use your site?
County's site is a very secure, complex site. It uses a number of
Application Servers, Web Servers, File Servers, Ftp Servers, and
Reverse Proxy Servers. For the system to know where to make the correct
connections, a cookie with the appropriate information must be present
on your computer.
+How can I send a link to one
of your pages in an email?
are two ways. One applies to our Intranet as used by county employees
and the other applies to the Internet as used by the public. The public
can just copy and paste the URL from the address bar in the browser,
while on the page they wish to send.
The employees have to make some changes to the URL they copied from the
address bar of the intranet portal: The URL is taken from the address
bar when on the target page, as shown below.
The URL below is the modified address that will take you to the page
from "outside", that is on the internet.
The changes consist of: 1.) change the piadb2.co.tuolumne.ca.us to
www.tuolumnecounty.ca.gov and 2.)change the /intra/ to /ps/
That's it. But to test it (and pehaps avoid embarrassment), send it to
yourself in an email and try it out. The URL above goes to the
