Reminder: Church Family Category is No Longer Public

Mar 29, 2012   //   by Joshua March   //   Web Support  //  No Comments

Just a reminder that, per, the Church Family is accessible only to church attendees. As such, if you want to post something to the outside world, you’ll not want to use Church Family as a category.



Church Family Category Change

Feb 7, 2012   //   by Joshua March   //   Web Support  //  No Comments

Good morning, all!

Just a note that I have changed the definition/use of the Church Family category. Before, it was not getting much use and was really just coinciding with Announcements and General News. Now, it’s a secure area only accessible via those who regularly attend our services (but who are not necessarily church members). This was necessary in order to have a place to post normal church business things that are general but which are not for the outside world (like elections).

Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks!


New Website Feature: Emailing Users

Oct 17, 2011   //   by Joshua March   //   Web Support  //  No Comments

Hello, all.

I’ve installed a new plugin that should give us some increased utility in reaching out to our website users: emailing.

There are two main features: Ad-hoc Emails and Post Notification Emails.

Ad-hoc Emails

Ad-hoc emails allow you to notify other users (one or many) about anything at all. To send an ad-hoc email…

  1. On your dashboard, click on the “Email Users 2” option on the left sidebar and then select “Send to Users”.
  2. Select the users you want to receive your message by clicking on their names. You can select multipe users by holding the control key on your keyboard as you click each name.

New ‘Urgent Message’ Widget

Oct 12, 2011   //   by Joshua March   //   Web Support  //  No Comments

You may have noticed the message about communion on the front page. This is possible now that the kinks have been worked out of the Urgent Message part of the webpage theme. It allows us to easily display text that, while able to used for anything, would be perfect for time-sensitive information like cancellations due to inclimate weather or whatnot.

For now, only I am able to update the text, but I’ll be tinkering to try to provide this ability to editors as well. Be in thought about what else we can use this for!



New Web Support Category

Greetings, all!

A few small changes to the website!

I have created a new Content Creators user group. This new Content Creators group now contains all users who post articles/pages on the website, no matter the content of what they post. This group includes the Church Board as well as a few others who have a need to post things for their ministries. Creating this user group enables me to set up resources that all ‘authors’ are able to access, like…


New Login Page

Sep 23, 2011   //   by admin   //   Web Support  //  No Comments

Just a heads-up that (as you obviously know by now), I’ve updated the login area so that it doesn’t take you to a new page just to enter your information.

Please let me know if something doesn’t seem to be working properly. Thanks!


Website Tip: Scheduled Publishing!

Aug 19, 2011   //   by admin   //   Web Support  //  No Comments

Every now and again, I’ll share something useful (there’s a joke there) concerning the website through little posts like these. Hopefully you find them helpful!

Did you know that you can schedule a post for a future date? Even a certain time down to the minute? You sure can!

Maybe you have an event next Sunday and want to post a ‘reminder’ this Sunday and then once on next Saturday. You could write both posts right now and just schedule them for the time you want them published– and the best part is that it’s really easy too!

Share Email Address Access

Aug 15, 2011   //   by admin   //   Web Support  //  No Comments

Hello, all!

A few of you approached me after yesterday’s board meeting to ask about accessing your email address. It occured to me that I can just post the information here for everyone’s benefit. I have no earthly idea why it didn’t occur to me to do this sooner!

There are two ways to access your email address. Yes, you can use both.


  1. In your Web browser (Internet Explorer, Safari, Firefox, etc.), visit
  2. Enter your entire email address as your username (e.g.
  3. Enter the password sent via email (it’s likely still NewRCNAcct) for most of you, I think).

A Housekeeping Note on Website Housekeeping!

Aug 9, 2011   //   by admin   //   Web Support  //  No Comments

Greetings, team!

First and foremost, a big thank you to each of you who have been regularly or even semi-regularly accessing the website and providing content out there for the congregation–and the world–to see and interact with. This is the ONLY thing that will make the difference between our website being a relevant, interactive, and faith-building tool to the congregation and being just a list of static information that web surfers might stumble upon while looking for something else.


New Properties & Maintenance Category

Jul 26, 2011   //   by Joshua March   //   Web Support  //  No Comments

I’ve created a new category for the purpose of public correspondence regarding Properties activities (e.g. Ben wanted to post a skills questionaire or ask who might be available to paint something). This is not to be used for Board-only Properties conversations.
