Introducing A Catholic Directory For You
Posted by Ryan Ross on 17 September 2010 11:11 AM
The power of TheCatholicDirectory is now built right in to your CatholicWeb EZWeb site. CatholicWeb.com has prepared a unique tool that embeds a personalized version of TheCatholicDirectory conveniently into your own website. This means your visitors will now be able to locate contact information for parishes and dioceses, locate Mass times when they are travelling, and get directions, all without ever leaving your website. This new feature is being provided free of charge, compliments of CatholicWeb.
TheCatholicDirectory has been customized just for you. Your church name, city, and state appear at the top of the window. Additionally, we brought highlights from your parish listing on TheCatholicDirectory to the front page, which include Mass times, Contact Information, and the current bulletin if applicable. For other types of sites that may not have Mass times or Bulletins such as Schools or Knights of Columbus, we substitue the summary for a TheCatholicDirectory related banner graphic.
How do I update my listing?
Since the summary information is pulled directly from your listing on TheCatholicDirectory.com, it is important to keep that information up to date. There are several ways to update your listing on TheCatholicDirectory.
From TheCatholicDirectory.com (anyone)
Visit TheCatholicDirectory.com and navigate to your listing. Click the Update This Listing button. Select the second radio button, "I am simply updating outdated information". Revise the contact information and Mass times as necessary, and click Submit Listing Update. The listing update will be subject to review by either the listing administrator, or our staff. Listings are typically reviewed within 24-48 hours.
From CatholicWeb.com (administrator)
Log in to CatholicWeb.com and click Directory Listings and then Edit Your Listings. Remember, EZWeb site accounts double as a directory listing at TheCatholicDirectory.com. In any case, click Info for your church. On the summary screen, click Edit Information. Update the necessary information and click the Update Information button to complete the changes.
From EZWeb (Schedules and Mass times)
Log in to your SiteBuilder and click Step 3 - Page Content. Click Open Page and then  Schedule/Hours. From there, click Content, then update and add Mass times and schedule information as necessary. Save your changes.
I have a non-sponsored EZWeb site, how do I turn off TheCatholicDirectory button?
The ability to have the power of TheCatholicDirectory built into your website is a significant advantage. We recommend that you take advantage of this free resource as a way to develop your site into a trusted Catholic resource but we understand that some sites may insist on removing the button.
To do so, log in to your EZWeb SiteBuilder, and click Step 2 - Web Pages. Click Web Pages on the left column, and then locate The Catholic Directory under Services. Deselect the checkbox, and Save your changes. You can always turn the box back on simply by checking the box, and Saving.
