OurChurch.Com’s new NE1 Website Builder already includes more than 140 high-quality templates with varying themes, layouts, and colors schemes. We want to continue to improve the templates available, so every month we will create 3 new templates based on the suggestions and votes of our members.

Do you have a suggestion for a new NE1 Template?

Post it here! Feel free to be general (Easter theme?) or as specific as you like (Purple and black Easter theme, menu on the left, image of 3 crosses on the top right). You can even post copyright free images you’d like included.

On January 16, we’ll take all the nominations received so far and start a poll. The template suggestions that receive the top 3 votes will be created and made available in February.

If your suggestion doesn’t win in January, don’t worry. We’ll do another round of voting each month this year and create 3 new templates each month.

If you can't wait that long or want something completely unique for your site, we can create a custom template for you and even include dynamic Flash animation effects.

I’ll kick things off with a couple template ideas I’d like to nominate.

In His Service,
Paul Steinbrueck
OurChurch.com

- A snowy, winter theme
- A red heart/love theme (just in time for Valentine’s Day?)

I personally like the idea you suggested of the (Purple and black Easter theme, menu on the left, image of 3 crosses on the top right). I would say have a black background for the webmaster's text to go on and a purple menu with white lettering. This would be awesome and similar to that of my former website at www.marilynspoetry.com

I really think the idea of more color in the place where the text goes is an excellent idea and especially the black or dark blue background for text!

Sincerely,
Marilyn Ferguson

I would like to see a template with Mountains across the top, somewhat
hazed as you would see the applachian mountains from afar. I noticed you have plains/horses and cities, but nothing that would symbolize people from the mountainous region. We, from WV, the mountain state, use the slogan "Almost Heaven" for a resond. The following is a website devoted to photos from our region:

I would love to have the bridge with the moutains and wather underneath it as a template. God's creation is the best backdrops.

Another suggestion is: there is a WV man whose name was Coffindaffer who put up three crosses in the mountains of WV, NC, VA, etc. Enclosed is his website with photographs, which would also make a nice template. Some of these would be wonderful

We have a few suggestions for new templates:

1. Similar to the one now available in NE1. It has a faint picture of the earth and three crosses on a hill, and streaks of light, with the green background at the top. Make the main text area dark brown background with white text, give the ability to put our own Scripture in place of what’s there now. Make it a side menu. Stunning!

2. Similar to a great one now available in NE1, city skyline at the top, orange/gold/brown colors, make the text dark brown on the white background, make it a side menu.

3. There’s one available on NE1 now that has a gold side navigation menu, blue/black/green border on bottom, green background on top with four people. Exchange the people for a view of the earth from space and it would be wonderful.

4. There’s a very cool one in NE1 that has greens and blues, with a sort of half oval at the top left where the ministry name goes, and the top green background has the continents of earth. Give it a side menu and it would be outstanding!

That's all for now!

In Christ,

I found an image that would be a beautiful moutain template:

Because my business logo is bright in color and my photos are general pretty colorful, I would like to see just some plain basic backgrounds in black, white, and the other basic colors. That would be most helpful to me.

Hi Calvary_25901,

Thanks for the suggestions. In order to use photographs from either of these sites we would need for you to acquire permission from the photographer. If you're not able to acquire permission, we'll still put your suggestions in our poll. If they win we would do our best to find stock images that are similar, but how close we're able to get will simply depend on the stock photos available.

In His Service,

Hi Paul,

On template suggestions, obviously anything that focuses on Jesus is ideal but you might consider adding to the large number of secular / business templates, a template highlighting the greatest threat to mankind and God's creation, Global warming / Climate change.


God Bless,
Harry

Hi,
On the templates you now have - on : Any Category Page 5, there is a template that looks like there is brownish leather on the left side - which is also where the menu goes - and it has a blueish paper for writing on.

My suggestion is to widen this template so it would fit a full screen (not sure how to say it - a site like ours is - which to me is normal and accommodating to most others ) NOT narrow as this template now ONLY fits. Thanks

Hi Paul,

I liked the simple migration, and the configuration/setup operation/added functions and features, of the new NE1 Website Builder.

I am, however, extremely disappointed in the available Template Designs with the new format; Beacon was lightyears ahead in the Artistic sense.

Art and Design-wise, I really like the Beacon Templates I am using; but, I must admit that Beacon is limited, and a bit cumbersome and quirky at times. I can see the reasons you are making a change; so, I will be converting all of my sites to the new NE1 Format.

You really need a much. much larger Template Selection; considering the variety, and level of attractive, artistic, design currently offered by Beacon:

-More specific Christian Theme Designs are an absolute necessity!
( church, ministry, personal/general use )

-More attractive and creative Miscellaneous Theme Designs
( Animals, Plants and Trees, Waters ( The Sea, Rivers, Lakes, Streams, Waterfalls ), Mountains, Gardens, Writing, Art, etc. etc. )

-The standard white, off-white, light or moderate grey backgrounds may be easily read; but they have very little interest and appeal.

You might consider:

-More Black and Dark Backgrounds
-More Medium Color Backgrounds
-More Pastel Color Backgrounds
( You might consider doing a Design in more than one available Background Color;
or:
making Background Color Choices available in any Template Design. )

Hi, I was wondering if you could have some (or one) template designs (side buttons!) that we could put our own photo's at top? I'm sure out of 15,000 sites there are some people who like to take photos as much as I do!! I wouldn't even mind if others used them. You can check out some of my photos at www.fromourhearts.net on "The Poem" page. It would be neat to see some of Our Church members photos at the top of the page. Just an idea, but I would like to see more Christian or Nature Side Menu template designs.
God Bless You & Yours,
Nancy

I realize this is my 2nd posting here, but I would like to stress the importance of having some color added to the templates. My first choice for an outstanding contrast is a black background with medium blue sides for the menu and white lettering for the fonts in the main area where webmasters place their material and also for the menu text, just like is shown on my current site at

Marilyn's Inspirational Poetry
http://www.marilynspoetry.com

I have had my website up and going for several years. I currently have over 5,200 subscribers and many of them are elderly. I tried many color combinations and this color has made them all happy. It is easy to read and is appealing because of the striking deep contrasts of color.

Last time for this mountain girl wanting a mountain themed template. I didn't think about copyrights Sad You are correct! I would like to see a SIMPLE template (like the horse/prairie one) but instead of horses have mountains SIMILAR to the link below (which wouldn't be hard to reproduce) and words at the bottom that say I lift up my eyes to the hills-- where does my help come from? My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth. .Ps 121:1-2.
