Managing your Inspire Website Content

Inspire sites have been crafted with nonprofit best practices in mind. That means we have created sample content that we encourage your organization to customize and fit for your own needs. In general, it is best to have:

  • A mission statement and inviting visual on your homepage
  • Clear calls to action for transactions (e.g. donate or membership join pages)
  • Easy to find About Us, Financials, and Board of Directors pages

We have set defaults for things like font and image sizing as well. You’ll be able to change these system wide settings in the Customize area.

Inspire also comes with a few stock images that you may use, though we encourage your organization to upload images that you have created yourselves. Photos that tell your story will help engage your visitors. If you need help finding images, there are both open source networks as well as popular stock image sites to utilize.

Pages

Pages are important sections of your website that we have defaulted content in for you following nonprofit best practices. Learn about our pre populated content and what to update here.

Editing or adding Pages will give your organization a way to provide your visitors information about what your organization does. While there is a built in WYSIWYG editor in WordPress, we have also added Visual Composer to give your organization a highly flexible and easy to use way to create beautiful webpages.


Both Pages and Posts can be saved as a draft and posted either immediately or at a later date. We can set your website to use any timezone. Please contact the support department to adjust your website’s timezone.

Blog Posts

Inspire websites have a built in blog for you to write about ongoing topics that may be of interest to your constituents. To create a new blog post, go to the left hand navigation and choose Posts.



Categories are ways to group together different blog posts. Categories, unlike tags, can have a hierarchy. You might have a Jazz category, and under that have children categories like Bebop and Big Band. Up to you.

Tags also can be used to group together different blog posts and are typically used for quick searching. Both Categories and Tags can have Widgets inserted into your Inspire site for content retrieval and reference.

Both Pages and Posts can be saved as a draft and posted either immediately or at a later date. We can set your website to use any timezone. Please contact the support department to adjust your website’s timezone.

Yoast SEO

Yoast SEO is a third party plugin that we have installed into every Inspire website. It is a responsive way to guage how search friendly your Pages and Posts are to search engines like Google and Bing.

When creating your content, there will be automatic updates based off the content you have put into your Page or Post and suggestions on what to change, delete, or add. While not necessary for publishing Pages or Posts to your website, a better Yoast SEO rating will ensure it is easier for people to organically find your website.
