WeConnect will be unavailable on Friday, May 5, 2017, from 9:00 pm–10:00 pm. During this time LPi will address the issue affecting building linked images in the WeConnect Admin Panel when using Google Chrome version 58 and Firefox. After the maintenance is completed you can return to using Google Chrome and Firefox, in addition to Safari and Internet Explorer, to access the WeConnect admin panel to update or add images to you website.

We thank you for your patience as our team addresses this issue and we apologize for the inconvenience.

WeConnect reCaptcha

Posted on October 3, 2016 by - Release Notes, WeConnect

In a recent WeConnect update a reCaptcha was added to the form submission process. The reCaptcha is a type of challenge-response test used in computing to determine whether or not a user is a human. This reCaptcha plays an important role in keeping your website and published email addresses safe from Internet spammers. How will this affect your parishioners? Before a form can be submitted a box titled “I am not a robot” will need to be checked. When this is done the user will be able to complete and submit the form.

Faith Theme

Posted on March 28, 2016 by - Release Notes, WeConnect

Since our update to WeConnect version 1.26 on January 25th that included our new Faith theme, we have seen many churches start using this new, dynamic theme with great success. This new theme gives WeConnect users the ability to further personalize their site with a background image to make a unique look for their site.

Please take a look at some of the sites that have made the switch over to Faith.
