|Control Your Own Site|
|WYSIWYG Page Editor
WYSIWYG Page Editor
Editing pages is easy... you don't need to learn HTML! SiteOrganic features a Microsoft Word-like editor that has toolbar buttons for all of the necessary commands. It supports either WYSIWYG or code view, so users of all skill levels will feel right at home.
|Manage Your Site Menus
Manage Your Site Menus
Every SiteOrganic Website includes dynamic navigation menus. This means that you can easily add, modify, or delete items from your menu at any time. No programming knowledge is needed; the navigation menu is presented in an intuitive screen where you can simply move elements until you are satisfied. The system supports two levels of navigation, so you can have main elements and sub-elements. As soon as you save your navigation settings, the dynamic menus on every page of your website will immediately reflect the changes.
For SiteOrganic Sprout and Custom Sites:Menu items can point to any page on your website, or you can even point menu items to outside websites. Menu tabs can also open new windows.
Your ministries and groups will also have their own navigation menus. If you're not using a page right now, you can hide the page from your navigation menus and your site-wide search. This makes it easy to save a page in the background, without worrying about un-authorized access.
Remember, the SiteOrganic system is intended to be used by not just your staff. In fact, you can create new user accounts for any volunteer, group leader, apprentice, facilitator, etc.
True security, based on groupsThe security system is groups-based, which means that you can quickly and easily set up new users who will automatically "inherit" all of the necessary capabilities you need to give them.
Users may be removed at any time, which instantly renders them unable to make changes to your website.
|All have the same role||Can assign different roles|
After you have removed a page from your website, it's very possible that you may want to use that page again later. By moving the page to your Archives, you'll have an easy place to find all of your "warehoused" information. Pages can be moved in or out of the archives at any time. Each ministry/group has its own archive. As long as a page is in the archives, it can't be viewed by the public--but your leaders and volunteers (with proper access) can preview the page and bring it back to "active" status.
|Multiple Menus within Your Site
Multiple Menus within Your Site
Each section within your Website can have its own navigation bar on the website. The section navigation bar is automatically updated whenever you publish a page to the website. You can also collect groups of pages into "clusters", which will appear as a familiar tree-style menu.
Only show the pages you wantMany Website platforms automatically put all of your pages into the visible menus. But what if you want to hide some of your pages? SiteOrganic gives you full control to show, hide, publish or re-publish any page or form into your menu systems. There is no limit to how many links you add, and you can sort them any way you'd like.
|Enhanced Workflow Controls
Enhanced Workflow Controls
The SiteOrganic system provides your staff, volunteers, and lay ministry leaders with tools to keep the website updated. Putting this much control in the hands of a widespread volunteer team can be risky, however.
|Get the Message Out|
Adding and editing calendar events on your website is easy! You can specify dates, descriptions, location information, and contact information for each event.
For SiteOrganic Sprout and Custom SitesEvents are automatically entered into the calendar based on the group who submitted them, so visitors can quickly see events based on department/ministry or category.
Spread the word with built-in Facebook commenting on every event!
The calendar supports 4 different views (Day, Agenda, Week, Month), and includes built-in support for Facebook integration. You can even assign different icons/color codes to various event types. Your visitors can also subscribe to your calendar events using popular RSS and iCal feeds.
Putting sermons on your website is as easy as dragging and dropping. Upload your MP3 audio files with any web browser. The system will automatically detect most file types and add them to your digital file cabinet. This makes it easy to place a link to these files on any page of your website. You only need to upload a file once, but you can use it an unlimited number of times across your website. Deleting files is also easy. SiteOrganic offers generous amounts of file storage (based on your plan), and you can request additional storage anytime.
For SiteOrganic Sprout and Custom SitesYou can upload audio or video files to your site, and play them natively. Be sure to also check out the Media Suite features, which turn your sermon archives into a rich spiritual growth and research tool!
You can add scripture verses, quotes from authors, or even testimonial quotes from your own members. Each quote can also feature an image or photo that you specify.
For SiteOrganic Sprout and Custom SitesOnce you have added one or more quotes, you may include them on any of your pages. You can even choose whether a given page of your site always will show the same quote, or whether it displays a different (random) quote each time.
The SiteOrganic Articles & Blogs manager allows you to create unlimited numbers of blogs or article collections on your Website. Common uses for this feature include:
One unique feature of the SiteOrganic blog is that you can let other people submit comments--authors do not have to have access to the Website backend in order to contribute to the blog.
Don't forget that SiteOrganic also allows you to publish blog headlines from other sources outside of our system. If you have a blog on WordPress, Blogger, or any other RSS-compliant system, then you publish those headlines within your SiteOrganic site (depending on how you want the headlines to appear, some small design charges may apply). Talk to us for more details on this.
One of the best ways to let your people know what's happening is through regular email newsletters. Or, you may have a special message to send out at a moment's notice. The SiteOrganic Email Newsletter engine lets you do this very easily. Visitors to your website can subscribe/unsubscribe to one or more lists that you offer. When it's time to send out a message, you can choose between plain text or HTML/text. The HTML option means that you can include graphics in your message to give it a more professional look.
|Emergency Announcement Engine
Emergency Announcement Engine
For situations when you need to get an announcement out to your website visitors in a noticeable way, use the Emergency Announcement Engine. It's ideal for conditions such as:
With all of the information and activities appearing on your website, your users will benefit from an easy-to-use search box on every page. You can control which pages are searchable, and how they're found...by adding keywords to your pages. While adding or editing a page, don't forget to add several keywords. There is no limit to how many keywords each page can have. We recommend that you include common misspellings, names of people, alternate terms, etc. As soon as you submit your changes, the search engine will immediately begin displaying your page to visitors if they search for any of your keywords.
SiteOrganic sets the standard for church media sharing online. Our Media Suite gives you the freedom to combine videos on your site with videos from third-party sites such as Vimeo and YouTube. Organize your media by series, date, book of the Bible, location, or any other categories you create.

Podcasting is a simple but powerful way for your visitors to automatically receive your latest audio/video programming. Anyone with a portable audio device and a podcast reader can subscribe to your daily/weekly audio programs. Each time you publish a new program with the Media Suite tools, it will automatically be downloaded to your subscribers' devices.
|Create Opportunities to Respond|
|Integrated Merchant Processing
Integrated Merchant Processing
We offer low, ministry-friendly rates for processing your credit and debit card transactions. Every transaction is routed & daily batched directly to your accounts. Money does not pass through SiteOrganic. Furthermore, your donors will see your organization's name on their account statements, not ours.
|2.5% + $0.30||2.5% + $0.30|
Your donors can set up a scheduled, repeating gift amount, which allows them to make regular contributions to your organization. This means that they can designate an amount and a frequency (e.g. monthly, weekly, bi-weekly) to have their donations automatically debited from a credit card or checking/savings account. Donors can also log in to your Website at any time to change/cancel their donations.
SiteOrganic has partnered with FoxyCart to provide all of our clients with a simple, affordable, and insanely-flexible method to sell products on your Website. FoxyCart can be embedded on any page of your SiteOrganic Website, giving you the ability to place a "buy now" link anywhere. You can customize store links or product displays to fit your exact graphical requirements.
Maximize the funds you receive for ministry with online giving! SiteOrganic Giving is not only low-cost, but it is jam-packed with features already in use by churches nationwide.
Easy setup, smooth operationWhen someone gives you money online, funds are automatically sent to your bank. You can even provide visitors the option to designate gifts for a certain program or ministry. With our integrated merchant processing, the funds reach your account quickly and with the lowest fees. You have full control to accept any combination of debit, credit, or eCheck payment methods.
Your members will be able to log in at any time to see their giving history, which can help reduce or eliminate your need for paper reporting.
Creating forms on your web pages is quick and easy. Using the SiteOrganic form wizard and the WYSIWYG Page Editor, you can add different types of questions (e.g. type-in, multiple choice, checkboxes, etc.).
|Volunteer Opportunity Database
Volunteer Opportunity Database
Non-profits are often looking for way to encourage a higher level of participation from their membership. Likewise, many of your members would often participate in service opportunities if they could find them. SiteOrganic's Volunteer Opportunity Database puts two-and-two together and gets volunteers plugged in to the right opportunities!
Publicize any serving opportunity, and take signupsYou may allow any group leaders, volunteer leaders, staff, etc. to input new opportunities into the Website. You can even list opportunities from organizations outside your own.
You can also connect a volunteer opportunity with a corresponding signup form to provide an easy way for people to get involved.
|Make it Beautiful|
Your staff and volunteers will be able to complete most text-based updates for your website. If you have people on your team with graphics skills, even better! They can create images, logos, landing pages, video, etc. and place them directly on your website. In cases where you would like a professional design created for a page, the SiteOrganic team is available at your service on an hourly basis. We can handle photo retouching, page layout, or mobile web design/development.
Photos often come from many different sources--digital cameras, smartphones, email attachments, and scanned prints, just to name a few. Other website management systems require you to have graphics software to size these images for proper placement on a web page.
|Add Your Own Images
Add Your Own Images
The SiteOrganic system makes it easy for your web team to put files online, just as easily as dragging files between folders on the desktop. However, special considerations are often appropriate when uploading image files. Other Website platforms usually expect you to know the ins-and-outs of image editing. With SiteOrganic, we do the hard part for you. Just use the Image Upload manager to place your raw images online (from a digital camera, smartphone, scanner, email, etc.). Then, you have total control over sizing your images. You can even make thumbnail (small) versions of your image automatically!

Photographs are the most compelling way to show the faces of your organization. Whether it's snapshots from a recent youth trip, digital images from a staff picnic, or an image log of your church construction project, SiteOrganic's Photo Gallery Engine gives you an easy tool for setting up your gallery. Each group of images is arranged in a digital scrapbook. Scrapbooks let you provide captions, location and date information, and even a title image to serve as the cover. Putting photos on your site is easy.
Whether you want to display a list of staff, students, volunteers, or just a list of your members, the SiteOrganic Directories tool makes it easy and fun.
Control the way your site looks--it's easyThe SiteOrganic Skinning tools are unlike any type of Website design tools you've experienced. You get complete control of all aspects of the site appearance--logo, backgrounds, typography, border treatments, and even the layout of pages. With no knowledge of design or web programming, you can create any look. And if you have some knowledge of CSS, we give you the ability to write/edit any styles at any level of the document.
Intelligent design for the way churches are organizedHere's a common situation: "We want our main church site to look one way, but our children and youth ministries need a more modern look for the kids. Can we have two different designs within the same Website?" With SiteOrganic skinning, the answer is YES. You can have different looks for one, two, or many different sections within your site.
Common uses for skinning include:
|Connect with Your People|
User profiles are the key to interacting with your peopleYou have full control over who has access to your site, and who can do what. Everyone using your site is considered a "user", but you can designate certain users to have special duties (Worker, Senior Worker, Administrator, etc.).
You can also assign users to specific ministries/groups, so that the right people are working on the right pages. This helps to limit your risk of accidental errors on the website.
Public visitors may register a new account on the website, or you can set up accounts yourself. Users must be registered to perform certain actions, such as event registration, accessing private pages, etc. Users can make their own changes to their profiles at any time.
You may search, print, or export your users from the SiteOrganic database at any time. We also provide data import services or single sign-on utilities (allowing users to login with credentials from other selected systems) for a fee.
Although most pages on your website will be intended for the general public, you may have certain types of content that are only meant for leaders, facilitators, or staff. In this case, simply designate who has access to see your sensitive material. The page editing screen has a list of all the available security levels; just choose the minimum user level who is allowed to see this page, and you're done! Any visitors who do not have "at least" that level of security will not be allowed to see the information.
Create your own security levelsYou can also create groups of people, called Private Subgroups, who have access to areas of your site. Common examples include Leadership Team, Staff, Event Volunteers, or Teachers.
With SiteOrganic, you are in complete control when it comes to the security and access to your Website content.
|Invite a Friend
Invite a Friend
Your members and/or supporters are the best outreach team you can find...put them to good use!
People trust communications from people they knowPromote your events and announcements with the Invite-a-Friend feature, which allows your site visitors to send a personalized email invitation to a friend or colleague. You may offer multiple different invitation designs, each one offering the sender a chance to type a personal message. The invitation is automatically sent to the recipient, encouraging them to visit your Website at the request of someone they already know.
|Small Group Search
Small Group Search
You can publish a searchable list of groups, studies, or classes on your site. Let visitors search your groups by category (men's, women's, parenting, expository Bible study, etc.), day of the week, or other descriptors.
Business Class Email powered by SiteOrganic unites fully collaborative, enterprise-level email, powered by extraordinary technology, with superior support, to deliver the smartest Email investment you can make.
|Monthly Transfer Limit
Monthly Transfer Limit
As your organization grows, you will usually experience increased demand for your website... a nice "problem" to have. As your website becomes busier, more data will be flowing back and forth from your account. To keep our servers at optimal performance, we include up to 1 terabyte (TB) of traffic on your account each month. Rest assured, most clients will use a mere fraction of the transfer bandwidth allotted. We'll send you an email if you're getting close to your limit, and we can work with you to determine the best plan for your size and needs.
Need more bandwidth than you're seeing on our Website?No problem; just speak with our sales team about discounted pricing for high-traffic sites.
|1 TB||1 TB|
Your website is safe with SiteOrganic. Our servers have multiple safeguards in place to ensure that your data is safe, private, and preserved. We use fast SCSI hard drives with RAID 5i, along with continuous SAN backups of the entire database. We also keep full mirrors of the codebase offsite. If you should ever delete something accidentally, or encounter data loss for some reason, contact the SiteOrganic Care Team. We can restore most data for you (nominal fees may apply).
|Cloud Storage for Files
Cloud Storage for Files
Your account with SiteOrganic includes a generous amount of cloud-based storage for all of your files--audio/video files, documents, PowerPoint slides, PDFs, images, etc. Placing these files on the server is as easy as drag and drop. Your site administrator can monitor your storage usage. If you need more space, you can either upgrade to a higher SiteOrganic plan, or pay a low monthly fee for additional disk space.
Safe and secureSiteOrganic file storage includes a number of enhanced features to safeguard your digital assets and files:
|5 GB||50 GB|
|META tag editor
META tag editor
What good is a website if nobody finds it? We want to make sure that your site is available for people searching on the major engines like Google, Bing Yahoo, etc. With the META tag editor, you can add/update your site's META tags at any time.
Your site will have a common footer bar that can appear on every page of the site.
If you have additional domains or DNS records, you'll have direct control by using the SiteOrganic Hosting Control Panel. This makes it easy to add domains such as:
Remember that all SiteOrganic sites come with the Friendly URL manager too, so you can create clean URLs like "www.examplesite.com/pagename". These require no DNS changes, since they are handled dynamically within the SiteOrganic platform itself.
Of course, even though we host your DNS at no extra charge, you're always welcome to use your own DNS host as well.
When you operate multiple Websites under one organization, you quickly realize that you need a good way to maintain consistency and quality. This is especially important for multi-site churches, nonprofits and ministries with multiple locations, or other sites that share content.
|Site Stats & Analytics
Site Stats & Analytics
One of the best ways to measure the success of your website is to know the basic information about your visitors - how many, what they're doing, what they are searching for, what type of computers they are using, how long they spend on the site, etc.
|Friendly URL Manager
Friendly URL Manager
SiteOrganic allows the creation of short, memorable addresses for any of your pages or forms. Instead of a long, numerical address for a page, how about something like this:
|Get the Help You Need|
One of the many ways that SiteOrganic empowers your staff/volunteers is through the Online Care Center. We constantly update our fully searchable user guide/documentation, so your users can train themselves on demand. This handy reference contains practical how-to instructions on every facet of the SiteOrganic tool suite. We also maintain a library of training programs in the Video Learning Center, which is open 24/7 for all clients.
Perhaps the biggest advantage of SiteOrganic when compared to traditional web hosting is that you receive personal support when you need it. Different SiteOrganic plans offer different types of support, and our support team will commit to acknowledging your request within that time period. Whenever possible, we will inform you whether the problem is isolated to your website, or is a system-wide issue. We will also make every effort to give you a realistic ETA for issue resolution. Our desire is to keep you up and running with the absolute minimum amount of downtime.
