Who doesn’t love when a new feature gets released? Anytime something you love gets improved is a good thing (unless you are talking about how Facebook and Twitter look, then don’t change anything or people will riot!). Here at Clover, our development team has offered a buffet of new features to the Greenhouse that you will want to keep in the “tips and tricks” section of your brain!
It has become commonplace to visit a website and see a video playing in the background. I mean, even Clover Sites had a video background four years ago. Am I saying we started the trend? No, but the Internet has jumped on the video background bandwagon. Interested but not sure how to start? Here are three creative ways to use video so your site will stand out online and reach visitors.

For more than 10 years, Clover has provided tools so that anyone would be able to build a website for their church. Throughout the years, many of our customers would joke that Clover saved their ugly church website, which got us thinking, “What else can we do to help save church websites?”
Let me ask you a question… What’s the craziest thing you’ve done to get someone’s attention? Listen, I think we all could tell some funny stories in response to that questions. We’ve probably all done some absurd things. I know I have! Like when I wore an exact replica of the Dumb and Dumber tuxedo to my senior prom...
Fact… Graphic design is important for your website! Your graphics could make or break the overall look and feel of your site. Good graphics will draw people in and enhance the quality of your website. Bad graphics? They’ll just confuse, distract, and leave your website looking less-than-professional. Don’t believe me? Let me prove it to you!
Christmas seems to come and go faster and faster every year, and while this is often bittersweet, one good thing about it is we get to think about what comes next: the New Year! Yes, after all the Christmas festivities are over, we turn our attention to a new start. We focus on refreshing ourselves and our lives by planning our resolutions for the coming year. My resolution for last year? Well…. Let’s just say I didn’t make it long into 2018 without a few cinnamon rolls chasing me down (And let the record show, I have no regrets!) Maybe your resolution this past new year was about saving money, losing weight, getting organized, taking a trip, or chasing a dream. Hopefully you faired a little better than me in reaching your goals! But no matter what you chose or how it played out, the point of resolutions is usually the same… To make the upcoming year better than the last. Believe it or not, one of the best things you can do for your church is make a resolution to do the same for your website. With the changing of the year comes the changing of so many things at your church. The new year brings so much new information to share! So let’s make the upcoming year better than the last when it comes to your church site!
Hello, my name is Luke, and I love holidays!
We made a major transition in my family this year… No, I’m not talking about Lebron’s infamous move to Los Angeles (though I’m still dealing with the emotional impact of that one!). I’m talking about our transition from being a family of three to a family of four! We welcomed our second son this year. Of course he’s been the best addition to our little tribe, but all you parents out there know that this transition doesn’t always come easy. Dealing with a child #1 who’s used to undivided child #1 attention (And isn’t necessarily ready to share the spotlight!) Dealing with a child #2 who’s COMPLETELY different than child #1 (So going through it once doesn’t really help that much, does it?) Yeah. It’s a transition that takes some getting used to! As parents, you go from zone defense to a man-to-man. Suddenly, you can’t pass off the baby and take a nap. Why? Because there’s another kid who needs you, too! (If you’re a parent of five, you’re laughing at me right now. But remember, there was day when you actually took naps!) Several months in, I think we’ve finally gotten the hang of this two-kid family thing. And here’s how we made it through the transition… We had help.
You guys, it’s official… Fall is here! School is in full swing. A chill is entering the air. Scarves and beanies are making their triumphant return to wardrobes around the country. Football is here. And everything (and I mean everything) is suddenly flavored with pumpkin! One of my favorite sights in the world is the leaves changing colors at the start of every fall. There’s a tree in a nearby park that I marvel at every year... It’s almost as if the entire world goes through a little renovation each fall! With everything around you changing this season, you don’t want to forget to do the same for your church website! You’ve heard of spring cleaning, right? Well, let me introduce you to the fall overhaul! Let the changing of seasons be a signal to you to make some changes on your church website!
