7 Steps to a Great Church Website
Adventist Church Connect uses a powerful Content Management System (CMS) that allows for multiple people to submit, edit and post articles, photos and events to your church’s website. The power behind a CMS is having more than one person involved in keeping your website up-to-date. With User Management you can give different people access to limited pages, or give them limited options. Let’s take a look at how setting up users can help your web ministry grow.
1) Log in by clicking on the User login/customize link at the bottom of the home page of your website. You will be shown the Welcome Page. Click on the User Management icon and all of the active, unapproved, or inactive users will be listed. Since you are the administrator, you will be listed and can add and approve additional users. Watch the short video by clicking the video icon in the top right-hand corner of the page. After watching the video we recommend that you print off the help page so you can easily review the levels of access.
2) Next, click on add and you can add a new user. The best way to learn how to set up users is to get started – you can always delete a user, so go ahead and set up someone in your family or a church member who can be your test person. Setting up users is very easy – the most important items are choosing the user level and selecting the permissions you give the user (this is done by clicking on the Access tab).
3) The last thing to remember is that users given “author” status will be able to write content for your website, but someone with “editor” or “administrator” access must check the Approve Submissions icon on the Welcome Menu.
