This is the dashboard where it all happens! All of your leaders, staff, and group coordinators can have access to your website's private admin console. Viewable through any current web browser, the admin console is the hub of your online ministry. Use it to add new pages, edit current pages, manage calendar events, send emails, set up event registrations, and more. You can control who has access, and even limit certain users to certain tasks.
|Articles & Blogs
Articles & Blogs
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.
Adding and editing calendar events on your website is easy! You can specify dates, descriptions, location information, and contact information for each event. And events 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.
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 (not available on all SiteOrganic plans). 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.
|Event Signup Reports
Event Signup Reports
Since SiteOrganic gives you the power to create event registration forms with ease, you'll want to use the system for just about anything that requires a signup or payment. Once you do receive sign-ups on the system, authorized users can log in and view real-time reports. View a basic report showing the number of orders, and basic details in a list. Or, create your own custom reports showing just the fields and columns you want.
Your attendee list is portableNeed to bring your event sign-in data into a database system such as Access, FileMaker, or Shelby? No problem! All reports (even your custom reports) can be exported to MS Excel format. Once the data is in Excel, you can import it to virtually any popular database software for further use.
The File Manager is your cloud-based "hard drive in the sky". It's where you store all of your stuff--documents, images, media files, etc.
Putting files on your website is as easy as dragging and dropping. The SiteOrganic File Upload manager lets you send multiple files to the server (may vary slightly depending on which web browser you use). Files can be any type, including documents, PowerPoint slides, images, audio/video, Zip files, etc. The system will automatically detect most file types and add them to your 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.
|Forms & Polls
Forms & Polls
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.).
|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.
SiteOrganic sets the standard for church media sharing online. Media Suite (included with most church Website plans at no extra charge) 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.

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.
|Page Editing System
Page Editing System
The SiteOrganic page editor makes it easy for anyone to be a web designer! If you are familiar with popular word processing software, then you can edit web pages for your organization.
A tool you'll instantly understand
Website edits can be made from anywhere you have access to the Internet (even from home!), day or night. You can control every aspect of a page, such as fonts, colors, images, and tables. Advanced features such as spell check, code view, and roundtrips to outside Web editing software make this the easiest way to be a webmaster! On certain SiteOrganic plans, you can also configure security access for each page, and fine-tune the search keywords that visitors will use to find your page on your search engine.
SiteOrganic gives you powerful editing tools to create and edit each page of your website. If you want to take a page out of "circulation" while you're working on it, it's easy--just change the page's status to unpublished. This will preserve the content of the page, but will automatically remove it from the website so it can't be viewed by the public.
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.
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.
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.
Every SiteOrganic Website has a built-in search engineWith 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.
|Unlimited pages with Full Canvas
Unlimited pages with Full Canvas
There are no limits on your pages with SiteOrganic. Create as many as you want, no matter which monthly plan you're using.
Other CMS systems limit you on where you can add content. The SiteOrganic mCMS gives you freedom like no other platform!
|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.
|SiteOrganic Design Features|
Each SiteOrganic design has its own blend of dynamic content. These rotators (also known as "carousels" or "channels") can include random image displays, ad engines, promotional graphics, text-based links, or scheduled headlines. The design of your site will dictate the right tools; our team will automatically use the right systems to help you manage all of your content.
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.
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.
SiteOrganic allows you to use the built-in fonts that our designers pick for your site, or you can show some originality and choose your own. Our editor includes a full set of web-safe fonts, known to look great in any browser.
|Home Page Features Engine
Home Page Features Engine
Even though your website calendar provides a great place to publicize all of your events, there are certain major events or announcements that deserve special treatment on the home page. That's why we provide you with the Home Page Features Engine.
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. Lower-quality 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.
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.
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:

|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% + $0.25||2.5% + $0.25||2.5% + $0.25|
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.
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.
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 Service (SOS)|
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.
|Free Training (SiteOrganic Bootcamp)
Free Training (SiteOrganic Bootcamp)
On a regular basis, our Client Care team conducts a FREE webinar session covering all the basic skills required to get started with SiteOrganic. We use a live web-conferencing system, so you'll be attending our virtual training along with other clients. Here's a summary of what we'll cover:
|SiteOrganic Solid Rock Hosting|
|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:
|100 GB||50 GB||5 GB|
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).
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.
|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:
|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.

|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.
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.
|SiteOrganic Advanced Administration|
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.
|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:
|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.
Your site will have a common footer bar that can appear on every page of the site.
|Full Navigation Menu Control
Full Navigation Menu Control
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. Menu items can point to any page on your website, or you can even point menu items to outside websites. As soon as you save your navigation settings, the dynamic menus on every page of your website will immediately reflect the changes.
SiteOrganic's powerful user management system allows your constituents/members to register, login, and manage their own profiles. This gives them the ability to keep vital information--address, phone number, email, password--up-to-date. It also increases the quality of your membership data, since the people are managing their own information. On most SiteOrganic plans, the My Profile screen also lets each person change their subscription preferences for your e-mail lists.
|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.
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.
|Unlimited User Accounts
Unlimited User Accounts
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. Each user can have different privileges. For instance, "Steve" is a volunteer leader of your church athletics ministry. So, you would set up Steve's account to have access to edit only the information for athletics ministry. Meanwhile, "Sue" is your church Administrative Assistant, and performs duties for the whole organization. You would set up Sue's account with full access to all ministries and groups, with additional capabilities commensurate with her level of authority.
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.
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.
Many organizations have "banner" programs or ministries with unique names, logos, or specific demographics. Or, your organization might hold activities in multiple locations or campuses.
Manage communications across multiple sitesMembers of the Web Network can have radically different "looks" than the parent website, but they will always share the Web Network menu in common. This lends consistency to your website and ensures ease-of-use for your visitors. Using the Content Syndication tools, you can also share common information among your various SiteOrganic websites, while having each site put its own custom edits or styling around that content.
An XML sitemap is a key ingredient in your overall Search Engine Optimization (SEO) efforts. The sitemap is a simple document that announces your Website content (including pages and blog posts) to outside search engines, as well as other web crawlers.
|Custom App Platform
Custom App Platform
SiteOrganic is built to grow. We have amazing features built right in to the platform, but every once in a while a client will commission us to build a custom extension of our tools. This could be a variety of things--past examples include media asset management databases, custom mapping applications, subscription services, or custom staff photo directories.
|Embed Third-Party Video (YouTube, Vimeo, etc.)
Embed Third-Party Video (YouTube, Vimeo, etc.)
While SiteOrganic offers industry-leading video and media integration tools, we also fully support the use of free video-sharing sites like YouTube and Vimeo. Want to embed a YouTube video on one of your pages? Want to host a live stream with a service like Mogulus or UStream? No problem. Just drop in the HTML code given to you by the video platform provider, and you're good to go.
Mobile computing is no longer a fad. Market stats prove that iPhone, iPad, Android, Windows Phone, and other mobile platforms are becoming a dominant channel for you to share your ministry content online. People like to use the Interwebs wherever they are!
Smooth delivery of your content to anyone, anywhereAll new SiteOrganic sites are built with mobile devices in mind. Our team is up on the latest trends in HTML5, jQuery, responsive design and other cutting edge techniques to get around the limitations of mobile platforms. Other web platforms still give you a Flash-based site, which is a huge problem for mobile phones and tablets. There is no Flash here at SiteOrganic!

|Prayer Engine Integration (NEW!)
Prayer Engine Integration (NEW!)
SiteOrganic offers the ability to have a dynamic prayer wall built into any page of your site. We integrate with the Prayer Engine, which is the leading online tool for prayer request management. It supports named and/or anonymous prayer requests, and has an admin interface so you can moderate requests as needed.
|RSS Feed Publisher
RSS Feed Publisher
With SiteOrganic, your content can travel beyond the bounds of your Website. The RSS Feed Publisher automatically creates various feeds from your Web content, and makes them available to other platforms, devices, and systems that use the standard RSS specification.
|RSS Feed Reader
RSS Feed Reader
Many clients have outside sources for news, such as blogs, Twitter feeds, syndicated content, social networking sites, etc. These outside services normally publish this information in a standard format, called RSS.
|Search Engine Optimization (UPDATED)
Search Engine Optimization (UPDATED)
SiteOrganic gives you tools to help stand out and achieve better page rank on major search engines. In addition to the META tag editor, we also offer you the ability to control the wording of your TITLE tags (which can appear differently than the visible page name in the body of your pages). All of our code is written with search visibility in mind, and our page editor creates clean markup whenever possible.
|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.
