Today we're excited to announce the launch of one of our most unique site designs: Voyage! This new design is incredibly flexible and fluid, so your visitors can enjoy a smooth browsing experience while keeping things really structured.
Last week, we wrote a blog post about how you can use 3rd party solutions to create some beautiful forms on your website and the reaction was great! That's why we thought today it would be helpful to do something similar for calendars. Like with forms, Clover Sites 3 currently doesn’t have a built-in calendar feature and there isn't a timeline on when that feature might be added. However, there are a lot of great calendar resources that integrate really well with Clover Sites 3 and we wanted to take a look at how some of these solutions can help keep your visitors up to date on what your ministry is up to!
Get the checklist you need to build an easy and beautiful website for your church.
We’ve heard a lot of questions about how to use forms with Clover Sites 3, and we thought this would be a good opportunity to talk about that feature. It’s no secret that the new version of Clover Sites doesn’t have built-in forms, and at this point, we don’t yet have a timeline on when that feature might be added. What we do have, however, are some really great ways we’ve seen our customers implement forms on their site using 3rd party solutions.
If you've ever heard someone say that the Internet is written in ink, you probably already know that anything you put online has the potential of staying public indefinitely. So what if you want to take down a document with outdated or sensitive information that you put on your site years ago? Sure, you can delete the link to the document from your website but you'll still need to take extra steps to remove it from Google's search results. A few of you asked about how you can do this recently and we wanted to share some helpful resources! Follow the steps below if you have any sensitive documents, like missionary profiles, that you want to remove from Google searches.
We wanted to start the new year highlighting an organization that has done more than just create a beautiful website. Ministries Without Borders is a charity that travels to nations all over the world - including Cuba, Nepal and the Philippines - to provide disaster relief, medical aid, feeding programs, water irrigation and education to those in need. The work they're doing around the world is inspiring and we definitely recommend that you take a second to read, listen to or watch some of the stories they've collected on their website.
Between the holidays and the upcoming end to another year, December is a huge month for online giving. In fact, many non-profits and organizations receive over a third of their total yearly donations in this month alone! As the year comes to a close, donors are also more likely to become recurring donors and give larger gifts. That's why today we thought it would be a good idea to share some of the ways your church or organization can best utilize Clover Donations this December. Here are some of the best practices to keep in mind this year:
Starting today, we're beginning to roll out Phase 1 of the brand new media player for Clover Sites! The new media player lets you upload and share things like sermons and important announcements, so your people can watch and listen directly on your website.
It takes a pretty impressive website to make the entire Customer Relations team gather around one monitor to check it out together. This week we did exactly that with Lighthouse Church's beautiful site. There's a consistency to their website that makes it feel sleek and modern without losing that welcoming feeling a church website should give you. All of their pages are short and to the point, delivering their message in a very straightforward and convenient way.
