How to Make Your Website More Attractive for Visitors

Posted by Peter Frank on Feb 19, 2014 9:00:00 AM

Include Staff Photos

Visiting a church for the first time is more uncomfortable when you don’t know anyone who attends. Include up-to-date pictures of the church staff on your site to give potential visitors a friendly face to look for.

If the staff at your church is concerned about pictures being used as attention-getters, remind them that the goal of a website is to gain attention—in a good way!

Add a Favicon to Your Website

Some of your favorite websites may have special icons next to their entry in the bookmark section of your browser, called a favicon. Adding a favicon to your church’s website is simple!

  1. Find an image of your church’s logo or another image that represents your church. Make sure the image is in a GIF, PNG, or JPG file format.
  2. Use a site such as http://favicon-generator.org to generate the image in an ICO file format.
  3. In Church360° Unite, go to Themes > Advanced and add the file to the Image folder in the “Resources” section.
  4. Click on the default.theme file and add this code right below the line that reads }:

    <link rel="shortcut icon" href="http://demo.360unite.com/themes/ribbon/images/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon">
    <link rel="icon" href="http://demo.360unite.com/themes/ribbon/images/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon">

  5. Update the image URL with your subdomain and the appropriate theme name. If you need any help doing this, feel free to contact our software support technicians at (800) 346-6120.
