Creating a Custom Contact Page
Friday, February 24, 2012 Comments (0)
E-zekiel automatically creates a “Contact Us” page for each site. But if you’d prefer to create your own contact page, that’s easy too. First, turn off E-zekiel’s version of the “Contact Us” page by accessing your site’s Account Manager. Look for the field “Contact Email Address” and delete the address typed in that field (make sure you don’t leave any blank spaces). Save your changes, and the “Contact Us” page will no longer appear in your site menu.
Next, create a custom contact page by following the steps that you would to add a new Web page. In the editor, include any contact information you’d like – such as email addresses and phone numbers for individual staff members, as well as your address, directions, maps and so forth. Be sure to indicate “Yes” on the option to “Add Link to Site Menu”, save your changes, and your new contact page can be accessed from your home page.

Every organization has strengths and weaknesses – primarily because every organization is operated by individuals who have strengths and weaknesses. As a leader, how can you help the individuals in your organization flourish in their strengths, post a guard around their weaknesses and achieve more as a team than they ever could on their own? A blog on Pastors.com – 9 Ways to Create a Winning Organizational Culture – has some ideas how.
Handling Online Conflict
Friday, January 27, 2012 Comments (0)
Tweets and status updates can miss the subtlety of communication that comes in a face-to-face conversation. Yes, even with a winking emoticon or an LOL. Online communication can also loosen the typing tongue in a way that, face to face, might give you the chance to see how your words affect another person – and, thus, adjust the tone before you finish what you’re saying. These are the sorts of issues that can create and fuel online conflict – whether you’re on the receiving end or the sending end. So how can you live out your faith online when harsh words get slung your way? A blog on Pastors.com has some ideas. Take a look at 10 Godly Ways to Handle an Online Conflict.

You’ve got two great ways to display scenes from your Christmas and New Year’s gatherings – thanks to the recent introduction of E-zekiel.tv Beta, a free Christian video sharing website, and the Album Manager that comes with every E-zekiel.com package.

Simply create a main album page through the Album Manager, then you can begin adding an unlimited number of albums. Storage space has limits, depending on your plan, but that's easy to manage by keeping a close watch on image size.
