We've implemented Styles to give you even more options for customizing the font styles, colors, and sizes on your site!

Accessing Styles

Over the past few months, our developers have been working hard on the addition of Styles to Church360° Unite. Under Styles, you'll find options for setting font combinations that apply universally across all pages across your site. Administrators and Designers are able to create as many styles as they want. Publishers may utilize these styles across all pages in the site.

To access and set styles, simply log in as an Administrator or Designer and click on the Themes option in the Admin bar. Under themes, select Styles. You will see that a number of Styles are already set on for your site. These Styles are determined by the Theme you have chosen for your site.

Designer Role Added

As I have alluded to earlier, we've also added a Designer role to give your church control over who changes and sets Styles. Since Styles apply universally to your site, we thought that it might be best to create this Designer role to encourage uniformity and good design practice across your site. The creation of this role prevents Publishers from accidentally making universal changes to Styles, which could affect the overall look and feel of your church's website.

Please note: It is our policy that only your church's site Administrator(s) will be able to determine roles for each user at your congregation. If you would like to be set as a site Administrator or Designer and do not currently have access, you will need to get in touch with the Administrator at your church. Our support team will not be able to switch your role for you.

Editing Styles

If you would like to edit an existing Style, just click on that Style name from within styles. You'll have the option to edit the size, padding, and color for that Style. Any content in your site that's currently using that Style will change automatically.

Adding Styles

To add a new Styles, just click on a "Add Style" button from within Styles. You'll be able to pick a custom name for your Style and set all other font, style, color, and sizing options as you wish. Once saved, your Style will be accessible from within the Edit Page mode across all your pages.

Applying Styles to Your Site Content

Users who are set to the role of Publisher can utilize any of the Styles set by Administrators or Designers. To apply one of your custom styles to your site content, simply navigate to the page you wish to edit, select your desired text, and then select your desired style from the option in the editor bar. When creating new page content, Publishers will also be able to select and utilize any of the predefined Styles from within the editor bar.

Please note: The paintbrush icon in the editor bar is a shortcut to take Administrators & Designers back to the Styles view. Before you click this icon, please remember to save your page progres!
