Sabbath School and Personal Ministries

Sabbath School and Personal Ministries sitesWhen you have been working on a project for a long time, it’s exciting to see it come to life. The Adventist Living Pattern System has been in development and planning for a long time, but this last week, we saw the launch of the first set of ALPS powered sites. The Sabbath School and Personal Ministries Department of the General Conference runs eight sites featuring the materials they have developed for the use of the church. This last weekend, the family of sites were launched using the ALPS design, pulling their CSS and Javascript from the CDN that we have provided.

These sites are hosted on using the ModX content management system.

Congratulations to the Sabbath School and Personal Ministries department on their launch!

    Looks great Brent! You’ve really got a quality setup there.

    Just curious as to what system the church is running these sites on whether it’s using ChurchConnect, NetAdventist or WordPress.

    Being in the NetAdventist system I’m really wondering about what the future holds for it given we never hear anything. I haven’t attempted to add the ALPS setup into my theme yet. I can do it no problems but for 99% of other NA webmasters it’s going to be well beyond them.

      Thanks for your comments, Robbie, but I can’t take credit for building the sites. These 8 are on the ModX CMX.

      As for NetAdventist, just added the CSS to your theme won’t magically make it look like ALPS. We have begun work on the ALPS theme for NetAdventist and it will be coming later this year. We want these resources to be as available as possible, so the theme on NetAdventist will be easy to add, don’t worry!

    Sounds good. Definitely the old NA3 themes need to all go & replaced by a new ALPS one.

    That is splendid, finally!

    So NetAdventist templates are coming “later this year”… What About WordPress?

    • | November 13, 2016 at 10:11 pm

      The news is very good, Lance, when it comes to WordPress. The work is underway and nearly done. We should have a demo and beta available soon to test on your site (and upgrade this site!). More news will be coming soon.

    Hello good afternoon.
    I want to ask, if I download and edit a netAdventist theme and add the ALPS css and javascript CDNs? Would it work or are not they simple?

    Hola, Buenas Tardes.
    Quiero preguntar, ¿Si descargo y edito un tema de netAdventist y le agrego los CDN del css y javascript de ALPS? ¿funcionaria o no estan simple?

      While technically you could, Yorman, I would encourage you to wait till we have the official NetAdventist release.
