Update to Fix Background Video in Safari 11

Version 11 of Apple’s Safari desktop browser for macOS was released a few days ago. Apple made a change that affects how background video is automatically played. This broke background video in our Saved and Maranatha themes.

We’ve released Saved 1.1.1 and Maranatha 1.5.1 to fix this problem. An issue with Saved showing linked images with an underline was also fixed.

Church Content Plugin 1.8 – New Name

Church Content plugin version 1.8 has been released.

Wait, what’s the Church Content plugin? It is the plugin formerly known as “Church Theme Content” that our themes use. Over the years, we’ve seen the plugin called all kinds of things so we decided to simplify the name. The way it works has not changed, just the name – although there are other improvements in this release.

Saved Church WordPress Theme

There’s nothing more exciting for us than to launch a new WordPress theme for churches. We quietly released Saved last week and are making the big announcement today. This is hands-down our most sophisticated WordPress theme — yet it’s as easy to use as our existing line of themes. To make things even sweeter, we’re also offering a 25% discount to the first users (expired).

New Features for All Themes

New Features for All Themes

A series of new features and improvements to all of our church WordPress themes has been completed. We spent the last few weeks focusing on theme updates after finishing a set of map improvements to our plugin. The new features include sermon index and child page templates for Exodus and Resurrect (from Maranatha) and an event registration button for all themes. We also updated our sample content to give you a better starting point for your church website.

Here’s a quick rundown of what’s new with the themes.
