Clover Sites is not an upgrade from Clover Sites Classic - it’s a completely unique product, built from the ground up, with brand new features and layouts. Transitioning from Classic doesn't copy your website over, exactly the way it currently looks so you'll probably want to rethink how you structure your new website to make the most of these innovative features.
How is Clover Sites Classic Different from Clover Sites?
While Clover Sites Classic limits you to page-based editing, the newer version of Clover Sites allows you to use section-based editing to add an unlimited number of unique sections to your pages. So, for example, you can create a list of staff members on the same page as a donation form or gallery slideshow, giving you the freedom to break up the way your content is presented in tons of ways.
Scrolling Text vs. Sections
Instead of having your text confined to a tiny window, where you have to scroll constantly to read it all, Clover Sites places all of your text on the page with no restrictions. The amount of text you can read at any time is only limited by the size of your screen!
Color and Font Control
Clover Sites also gives you complete control over the colors and fonts on your website, allowing you to change the look and feel of your page with a single click. We've even created a special algorithm so your colors match and interact beautifully and your text is always presented clearly.
Mapping Current Content to your New Site Design
Transferring Current Content
First, you’ll need to get your current content over to your new website. We created a Transition Mode that you can use to make transferring the photos and text on your current website really easy. Read our article on Transition Mode for more info.
By adding sections to your pages, you can actually combine multiple pages from your Classic website into a single page on your new website. Streamlining your website in this way will make it easier for people to navigate through your content - especially on your mobile website, where too many pages can make your navigation feel cluttered and chaotic.
