Ekklesia 360 June 2014 Website Updates

June saw two big releases from the team here at MonkDev. The first is Drag and Drop Navigation the other is the website for our online giving option Monk Donate (look out for more information about Monk Donate in the near future).

There were 5 minor improvements to the CMS as well, including the addition of blog posts in the link list. Just a few examples of our commitment to make Ekklesia 360 future proof.

Drag And Drop Navigation

Over the past few months, we’ve been working on big improvements to the navigation features of Ekklesia 360. We’re excited to announce that they are now available to everyone. We know you’ll love all of the new features included in the drag and drop release. Michael, a member of the MonkDev engineering, created a short tutorial to help you learn about the changes.

Here’s what you need to know:

  • You can now change position of navigation items through drag and drop
  • You’re able to edit the navigation and then publish the changes when you’re ready
  • Multiple navigation items can be deleted at one time

All of these changes are going to save you time when you update your navigation. Especially churches with mega navigation.

Monk Donate

Monk DonateThe website for Monk Donate was released. Monk Donate is a mobile friendly, PCI-compliant donation management system. You can easily create donation forms for various fund raisers, capital campaigns, events, etc... And then post links to those donation forms anywhere on the web.

  • It’s easy to use.and works seamlessly with your Ekklesia 360 website
  • You’re able to brand with your colors and logo
  • Responsive design transforms to make giving friendly on all devices

Blogs Included In WYSIWYG Link List

If your church has a blog, which you should, this update helps you link to other blogs post on your site. This is important because internal links (links from one part of your site to another) help with search engine optimization.

“The number of internal links pointing to a page is a signal to search engines about the relative importance of that page” ~ Google Webmaster support page.

Internal linking is also a great way to help someone find related resources from your church.

We highly recommend using this feature for internal linking instead of manually pasting in a blog post’s url. Should you change the url of a post, all manually entered links will be broken. whereas all links from the link list will automatically direct people to the correct location.

Note: If you have multiple blogs, each blog will have it’s own listing of posts.
