A New Look for My Website

After three months of much work, my website has a new look. Those of you who know me, know that I normally update my website myself. The change started when my old blog crashed in November. It didn’t work for three days. From there, my website hosting provider required a change of software (I knew this was coming at some point). This required copying over the entire website. This required more work than I had time for. So, I hired them to do the redesign. The good news is I had been wanting to give the website a fresh look for some time.

It is now visible at https://www.renewaloffaith.org.

It’s the same content as before and I will continue to add continue. The look is different. Perhaps the biggest visible change is that my blog and website are now one.

Perhaps the most beneficial change for people using my website is the addition of a search bar at the top of every page. You can enter words and it will show you where to find them on the website and the blog.

The menu bar near the top is different. If you look at the upper right corner, you will find three horizontal lines stacked on top of one another. That is the new menu bar. Just click on the three lines to see the menu bar. If you prefer a traditional menu bar, you can find it at the bottom of every page.

If you were subscribed to my old blog, you will need to subscribe to the new blog. However, that doesn’t seem to be working yet…please be patient. For those unfamiliar with this, when working, if you enter your email address in the subscribe box, whenever I publish a new article to my blog, you will automatically receive it in an email.

Lastly, you will notice the addition of the “s” in the website address (https://www.renewaloffaith.org). This is an added level of security. If you used to get messages that my website was unsecure, this should eliminate that.

As I said, the blog subscription doesn’t work yet. You can also see that links in my blog articles aren’t in color yet. They are working on that. If you notice any other problems such as missing text or links that don’t work, please let me know.
