Another month, another feature release! This time it's the Quicklink Manager. You can now easily manage your quicklinks with a simple drag-and-drop interface. Instead of using a widget to manage your quicklinks like you have in the past, you now can manage them in an easy-to-use interface. You may access the new module by logging into the CMS, clicking the Publish tab, and clicking the "quicklinks" icon in the left column. From there you can easily add images and links, and you can also drag-and-drop the order of quicklinks...
Happy Reformation Day! On this day 495 years ago, Martin Luther posted his 95 Thesis and sparked the Reformation. In addition to our "Reformation celebration" we are excited to announce the release of some significant new features in our Content Management System. All of our current design styles now have a mobile site, photo galleries, and the ability to post sermon, event, and blog updates to both Facebook & Twitter. Here is a list of the new features with a few screenshots to give you a sneak peek.
Do you share, like, tweet, or follow? Those 4 words have taken on new meaning in recent years. I used to "share" toys with my twin brother, "liked" eating pizza, heard birds "tweet," and learned to "follow" Jesus. It's amazing how simple words have been changed by social media. Facebook and Twitter have also changed how people do church & mission. Knowing the importance that many ministries place on these social media sites, we have developed the ability to integrate with them in our Content Management System.
The last few months at Church Plant Media have been exciting indeed. We've been releasing new features in our Content Management System and mapping out plans for the rest of 2012. One of those features is our Password Protection for pages. My own pastors were so stoked about it that they immediately published our church's Member Directory online with a password protected page. In addition to the new features, we also recently launched one of our biggest projects ever: LOOK... Up in the sky... It's a bird... It's a plane... No... it's the Church Planting Supersite!
In the past year we have posted a few updates about an anticipated major release of our easy to use Content Management System (CMS). Well, we have great news as 2011 draws to a close! After over 2,500 combined man hours in the past 18 months, we have planned, designed, coded, tested, beta released and officially launched this brand new update for our partners.
In connection with the 4th of July holiday, I read and pondered the Declaration of Independence. I thank God for the Founding Fathers and their passion for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. In this historic document, Thomas Jefferson wrote: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal”. While we do believe that all men are created equal, it is our firm conviction that all websites are NOT created equal.
Some months ago we posted about our highly anticipated CMS Refresh. Since then we’ve been remodeling and reworking what was already an easy-to-use system, into an even easier-to-use system. Good things take time and great things take more time. So while you are waiting for the upcoming CMS goodness, we wanted to give you a few more screenshots to let you see what we have cooking in the kitchen.
When we originally designed the Church Plant Media Content Management System, our goal was to create an easy-to-use system that would serve church plants, existing churches, and church planting organizations. Since our core focus is to serve gospel-centered churches, we chose to develop specific modules that every church needs. Now that hundreds of churches are using our system, we felt it was time for a system refresh. The best part? It is available to all churches on the new Church Plant Media CMS at no additional charge.
On January 27th, Steve Jobs announced the new Apple iPad to the world. The iPad is a 9.5 inch tall, 1/2 inch thin, multi-touch tablet device that allows users to "experience" the web, e-mail, photos, videos, music, e-books, and more, like never before. At the end of his announcement, Jobs referred to the iPad as "our most advanced technology in a magical and revolutionary device at an unbelievable price". We applaud Apple for announcing such an innovative device that will allow you to literally hold the Internet in your hand.
