Thank you. I used a great website tool called Yola and they supplied me with the code to imbed in HTML and simply chanegd the path in the code to the file name of the bulletin that I have uploaded to my file folder on their hosting site.

Here is the code they gave me:

<embed width="600" height="800" src="resources/November_8th_2009.pdf">

BTW, Yola can be found at http://www.yola.com/

Very nice site, stivvy. Kids page is cool, too.

Now, here's one worth seeing for "overtaken with busy"...
http://www.syromalabaraz.org/

Almost the counterpoint to that last... what not to do with flash!

stivvy,

Very nice and timing is almost perfect. I just finished Directory listings for the Byzantine Ruthenian parishes in OH last night cry . So, I just now edited Ss Peter & Paul to add the webpage addy, a bulletin link, and a photo of the interior (for the use of which I would much appreciate the permission of yourself and/or Father Robert).

Two questions - (1) which (church or rectory) is 180 versus 195 (I get conflicting info from various places) and (2) do you have an exterior photo that I can use on the entry? (If so, please e-mail it to me at ec_parish_webmaster@yahoo.com )

You can see the entry here

Many years,

Neil

aramis,

You make a very valid point. There can definitely be too much gimmickry applied to a site in the effort to make it eye-catching, appealing, etc. That revolving pic on the lower right is enough to induce vertigo.

Many years,

Neil

Thank you very much for the inclusion. You may use the photos we have so far. I took them myself. The address is only 180 Belvedere NE. I think the other was the school that used to exist across the street. It is no longer owned by the church. The only mailing address you need is the "180".

I will be taking more pictures in the future and this will include outside work. Right now we are doing some extensive work on the front doors so I wanted to wait until that is completed which should be in the next couple weeks.

Saint Antony's Coptic Orthodox Monastery has a very beautiful new webiste. I visited the Moastery when I was a guest of HRM before they moved.

The above quote, from another thread, reminded me of something I've been meaning to post and this thread is probably the best place to do it.

As noted, Yahoo closed Geocities, its free website hosting service, about a month ago. Admittedly, it announced the plan to do so a while back and recommended that site owners take appropriate steps to either upgrade to its paid service or otherwise save their pages. However, in the case of parish sites, I suspect that a lot of the warning messages fell into e-mail bins that were long since abandoned by pastors or webmasters who had moved on and been succeeded by others who never updated the contact info for the sites.

As was the case with AOL's Hometown web hosting, which closed a year ago, a lot of parishes used Geocities as a host and now may be blissfully unaware that they no longer have a presence on the web. So, if your parish was one of those, you might want to start looking for a new site. If you weren't fortunate enough to be on top of things and save the pages, you might try recovering (by copying) what you can through the Wayback Machine - the Internet Archives.

Many years,

Neil

Look at the gallery and click the photos there.

The new mosaics add a lot to the exterior of the Church.


The problem with St Michael's UGCC in Shenandoah that John and I discussed earlier has apparently been remedied and the gallery link (and thumbnail enlargement feature) now works. (Amazing the communicative power of the net. My gripe about the link not working was barely on the forum screen for a day when the entire gallery tab disappeared, not to reappear until it was working. Obviously, someone reads what we type here smile .)

Many years,

Neil

Is there a listing anywhere of parish bookstores? I'm closing Chaplets & Chotkis and I'd like to sell my remaining inventory to a parish bookstore for them to be able to sell at retail prices to their customers for Christmas presents. It would really be an awesome way for a local parish to raise some money.

I need to find a comprehensive list of e-mail addresses for parish bookstores so I can let them know about this sale. I've been looking at the wonderful websites listed on this thread, but most of them do not indicate if the parish has a small onsite Catholic bookstore. From my experience many parishes do have a small bookstore that is open after liturgy on Sundays, but also many do not.

This may not be the right thread for me to post this, so if it's in the wrong place, please forgive me.

Tammy,

While I suspect that many of the wholesale and retail suppliers likely have such created such mailing lists from their customer orders, I am certain that they zealously guard those as proprietary. I am unaware of any publicly available lists for EC or EO parishes that include that kind of info.

Many years,

Neil

Very nice, and good to see a post from you.

If I had a complaint to make about St Philip's website, it would be the option to run it with or without frames. There are still a lot of folks on the net who don't understand what that means and how it can affect their viewing of a site.

When they click a link and find themselves faced with a page that is reduced to a thin, not very user-friendly left column, I suspect it could be a turn-off that would deter further exploration.

Many years,

Neil

St Thomas Byzantine in Rahway, NJ has a very nicely done site (other than the out-of-date bulletin). Give particular attention to the 'Tour' link and click on the various cross (computer) icons there, which are links to photos of many of the temple's icons and other features - nice feature.

Many years,

Neil
