The Home Page Layout section of your website allows you to organize the information on your site’s home page to fit your church or organization’s specific needs. Display events, photos, hours, or any information you want using our easy drag-and-drop tool.
The Home Page Layout is accessed by clicking the Design section from the left menu bar. When making any changes to this section, be sure to click the Save button at the top to finalize the changes to your site.
The first time visiting this section, you will see a layout of columns displayed on the page with various panels already in place. To adjust the number of Columns, simply drag and drop your choice from the Columns menu located on the right hand side of the layout.
To remove an existing set of columns, hover over it and you will see an X appear in the top right corner. Click it to remove.
Panels control what is displayed in each area of the individual columns. You can drag and drop panels from the Panels menu located on the bottom right hand side of the layout. Each panel corresponds to information from a different area of the site with the exception of the Text panel. For example, events you have created in the Events section of the site would display in the Events panel.
The Text panel allows you to display any text, image, video, form, or Google Calendar you choose. Simply drag and drop the panel into a column and a Message Content box will appear.
Type directly in the box or click on the Insert/Edit Image or Insert/Edit Embedded Media icons to display images or videos. To insert a previously created form, click on the Insert Form icon. Lastly, if you are a current WeShare, Facebook, or Google Calendar user, click on the Insert Widget icon to insert the corresponding widget.
Enter your Site Slogan in the corresponding boxes. Upload a Logo Image by clicking on the Choose logo image button and selecting an image from your computer.
Upload a Header Image by clicking on the Use Header Image tab, clicking the Choose header image button and selecting an image from your computer. Header Image must be 1000px X 300 px.
To enable custom background images, please navigate to Theme and select the Faith theme. Once the Faith theme is selected, you can upload a background image of your choice.
For best results we recommend an image with the dimensions of 1920px X 1080px or a 16:9 ratio.
The Theme section of your website controls the overall look, color, and design of your entire site. Changing themes does not change any of the content you place on any other page or section of the site.
The Theme section is accessed by clicking on the Design link from the left menu bar. This will bring up the Theme screen and you will be able to choose a different theme for use on your site.
Arriving at this section, you will see a full selection of available WeConnect themes. The Current selected theme will appear highlighted in blue. To change it, click on the theme you want, select a color, and then click the Save Changes button at the bottom to finalize the changes to your site.
The Faith Theme allows you to upload a background image of your choosing to further customize your site.
You can change themes as often as you like without loosing content or menu structure to find what works best for your church or organization.
