Taking It From Good to Great: Announcing 3+
Something crazy happened while building 3.0.
As we programmed the entirely new website builder, the challenge of balancing power with ease was a towering hurdle to overcome. Through our amazing 3.0 Beta testers, we realized 3.0 could be streamlined to become the quick way to build a beautiful website yet retain 3.0 power. So we’re taking this from good to great, and it’s called 3+.
Mark saw the potential of this improved builder and without announcing it to anyone, not even our team, he combined key segments of 3.0 with his new vision to produce the new 3+ Website Builder. Because 3.0 provided an amazing foundation of code, those concepts have allowed us to now build 3+ in record time to get it into your hands as a Beta in December 2021! With this beta release, we’ll be releasing the new podcast and blogging software for your website as well. We expect a full release in the first quarter of 2022.
What you told us you loved, like the ability to schedule section publishing and control mobile/desktop publishing, are still there. As you will soon see, they are easier to access, use, and build a beautiful responsive website.
For those who have sites built on 3.0, don’t worry! You can stay on 3.0 if you wish or we can help you migrate to 3+ since you have already done so much work. For those still on our current 2.0 websites, we know rebuilding a website can be a lot, so in 3+ we made migration of 2.0 sites a priority with new tools that can automatically copy much of your content for you.
Want a peek at 3+? Starting now, we’ll release a video every week showing you more about the new builder. To stay updated via text on 3+, just text the word 'Updates' to 208-314-0595. We’ll keep the weekly video brief and welcome your feedback.
There is so much more we could say, but we’ll let this week’s video handle the introduction. While there’s more to see, 3+ is still being assembled. We want to give you just a taste in this first short video, with more to come next week!
Thank you for allowing us to serve you and your church/ministry!
