With the current version of Clover Sites, adding text to your website is as simple as possible. We take care of pretty much everything related to the design so you can literally just type and never have to think about the styling of your text (with the exception of a few controls we included like bold, italic, and a couple options for text size).
While we're still some months away from our official launch, we're really excited today to be launching a promotional site for Clover Sites 3! First and foremost, this website will help you learn more about this new version of Clover Sites and give you an even better taste for the features we'll be launching with. It also has answers to the questions we hear most frequently from current, as well as potential customers. We've also made a quick video to give you an overview of what Clover Sites 3 is all about:
Get the checklist you need to build an easy and beautiful website for your church.
In addition to section management and text editing, there is another major feature in Clover Sites 3 that recently saw a bit of an overhaul: The media player.
Editing text on your website may not seem as exciting as bigger features like section management or the media player (which we'll talk about next week). But making a great text editor is incredibly important... and harder than it might seem. Here's a little peek at the process behind how we approached this for Clover Sites 3:
You may remember a post we wrote a few weeks back, introducing the idea of Section-based Editing in the new Greenhouse for Clover Sites 3. If you missed it, check out the post for more of those details.
One of the biggest differences between the current version of Clover Sites and Clover Sites 3, is the way we are structuring each page of your website.
SoAcres is a passionate group of people who are heartbroken that each weekend in their city, over 150,000 people aren't connected to a church. Their goal is to change that, and see the people of Lexington reached.
YWAM North Africa has created a robust site that not only is full of information and helpful resources, but looks great as well. We especially like how they have created and used detailed forms very effectively, to let people complete their application online for Discipleship Training School (DTS). They have also created full sets of pages with all the important information in three different languages (English, Spanish and French) to help communicate more effectively to an even wider audience - a great example of a multi-language site!
We wanted to point out this site because it has some really great branding that exudes an excellent sense of place. While the site is definitely modern and relevant, we love the historical, black and white imagery of the Highland Park area as a backdrop for the message and content of the site. It is utilized not just on the homepage, but throughout many of the other pages on this site. Besides the visual elements, they've also kept the site navigation and content clean and simple. A powerfully focused approach that we think works really well. Also, we love the messaging on each slide of the homepage. It gives you such a clear picture of what this church is all about. Great job Antioch!
