Daily Message

The daily message feature displays a different message on the homepage that is valid for the current day - each day the relevant daily message will be shown.

There are three ways that you can use the daily message:

 

 

Adding the daily message yourself

The site administrator can enter the daily message in advance through Global Office, so it is possible to enter a whole years worth of daily messages in one go. The daily message feature can be used for whatever your Church requires it for, for example, 'Daily Bible Reading Plans' or 'Verse of the Day'. 

If you want visitors to your site to be able to see a listing of all the daily messages for the current month, in the Daily Message Options, select Yes for Allow Previous Messages to be viewed. This may be useful if you are using this feature for your Church Bible Reading Plan, for example, as it allows visitors to print off the whole of the month's plan.

 

 

Once you have selected this option you will then be able to start adding the daily messages for each day. On the Daily Message page in Global Office just select which month you want to update and click Update.  If you want to see the messages that have already been added, select the month and click View.

 

Custom Script

If you have a daily feed from another site then you can add this to the daily message by pasting the JavaScript code into Option B

 

Use the biblegateway.com Verse of the Day

To use the biblegateway.com feature you simply need to select which bible translation you require, Bible Gateway's verse of the day will then be displayed in the widget on your homepage.

 

Changing the Widget Name

The default name for this feature is 'Daily Message' which is displayed on the front page above the daily message. You can change this to something more appropriate, i.e. “Today's Bible Reading' or ‘Fact for the day', by going to the Daily Message options in Daily Message > Daily Message Options

 

Removing the Daily Message Widget

If you decide that you do not want to use the daily message feature then you can remove this at any time by going to Settings in Global Office. You will need to click the Features button where you can turn the different features of the site on and off.
