Who Did You Bless This Christmas? With Christmas quickly approaching, we wanted to take a moment to slow down and invite you in on something special. We want to provide you with the chance to gift a free Clover site to a church that you know could use it. Thanks to our amazing Clover customers, we have been able to give away lots of church websites! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! We were so blessed by this and want to share some of the stories we heard from you.
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!
They're eye-catching and exciting and we think you're going to love the newest Clover Sites feature, video backgrounds! Whenever someone navigates to your webpage, a sizzle reel showcasing your youth program or a video snapshot of your latest worship service is sure to catch a visitor's eye immediately. Imagine how your church could use this spectacular feature to engage visitors on your website with what to expect from your church experience. We’re so excited to deliver this feature to you, available as part of ALL of our Clover Sites design options! Video backgrounds were built to make it easy for your church to create distinctive, captivating pages on your website. Insert a video into any section, and help create a better experience to showcase your worship services, ways to connect, volunteer opportunities, events, youth programs, and so much more! Let Clover help your church user video backgrounds to present your church in an inviting, intriguing and MOVING way. Take a look at some of our customer's websites who are already taking advantage of this great new feature! http://rosemontchurch.org/ http://goloveindy.com/ Looking for ready-to-use videos and other media options?

It's big and bold and we think you're going to love the newest Clover site design, DUSK. We launched Majesty a few months ago and here we are with DUSK, hot off the presses, so to speak. Take a look and imagine how your church could use this snappy design to share your message with the world. We’re so excited to deliver a BRAND NEW Clover Sites design to you! Dusk was designed and built to make it easy for your church to be dynamic and compelling. Use sections to arrange your images, lists, forms, and all your church website content. Let Dusk help your church communicate with power and clarity.
We've launched Clover Media! Do you know how long it takes to form a first impression? Here's a hint... it's a really short time. Do you know the importance of making a good first impression? Do you know where to get great, high-quality graphics to make that great first impression? Do you know how to get a design set up for your sermons or worship slides? It's robust, it's powerful, and -- best of all -- the answer is here! This summer, Clover Media can solve all your image and graphic problems.
It's robust, it's powerful, and -- best of all -- it's here! This summer, Clover Image Editor is being released in a BETA version! And we're so excited for you to try it out. Click here to watch the welcome video and see just how much you can learn to do with the new Image Editor! Full use of the Clover Image Editor is included in your Clover membership. Click the new Image Editor button in your Clover Greenhouse. You'll land in what we "in the industry" call an Artboard. Select what kind of file you want to open and get to work. There's a bit to learn, but (as always!) we're here for you on that front, too!
It's that time again -- to announce a new feature on Clover Sites! The media statistics helps you know which of your media items are played most often. This can help you optimize what you share with your congregation and your community. As you learn which topics are popular, you can address those issues more often. Access the statistics panel by clicking straight to it from your Dashboard. This is already live on your site (if you're still on Clover Classic, check out how you can Transition FOR FREE to CS3. Is this your time to upgrade?) and it should pre-populate with some historical listening data. You'll now see an overview of your media stats.
There have been church websites before, there have even been websites using Clover Sites. But you've never seen this design before! We’re so excited to deliver a BRAND NEW Clover Sites design to you! It’s called MAJESTY and we hope you’ll think it’s pretty “majestic.” ;-) See what we did there. Haha, take a look
**Editor's note: If you are already using CS3, you know how great a Text Editor can be. If you're still using Clover Classic, this post is for you!** 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 things like bold, italic, and a couple options for text size). Check out the video below -- we explain everything!
We wrote a post (quite a while ago!) about the idea of Section-based Editing. It makes it way easier for you to edit and control the look and feel of your website. If you checked it out when we first launched, it's time to check it out again. Since that initial launch, we decided to take a step back and make things EVEN more simpler (bad grammar to show emphasis). We've made it much better. But you get all the benefits!
