New LDS.org Navigation Menus: Resources Easier to Find PDF Print E-mail
Written by Office of Communication Services   
Friday, 15 May 2015

The phone rings on Saturday night. It’s your child’s Sunday School teacher asking you to be a last-minute substitute for his class. “You can find the lesson on LDS.org,” he says before hanging up. LDS.org is easy to find, but now where do you go?

LDS.org will get a new navigation menu in a release scheduled for mid-May, the latest of the Church’s continuing improvements to make its official website more personalized and easier to use.

Aware that any changes may be temporarily confusing for anyone who regularly uses the site, the Church has prepared an introductory video as well as instructional video tours to ease the transition. These will be found on the LDS.org home page and linked from social media and other sources to help visitors learn about and navigate the new menu structure.

Why change at all?

Studies by the Church show that members rely on LDS.org to help them

  • Become better followers of Jesus Christ
  • Serve in their callings and assignments
  • Feel inspiration and hope
  • Find practical helps for life’s challenges
  • Stay connected with the Church

But users’ feedback over the past few years regarding LDS.org has been clear: resources are difficult to find, and the navigation could be more intuitive.

Meetinghouse Webcast is the official solution for local units of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to broadcast meetings over the Internet to other locations. Webcast technology provides an alternative to travel for stake conferences, regional conferences, firesides, and training meetings.

In February 2009, the Church released the Meetinghouse Webcast Communicator. The Communicator includes the hardware and software needed to encode and send a webcast stream. To meet the needs of those with custom hardware configurations, the Church is now beta testing a software-only solution for use on Microsoft Windows XP, Vista, or 7.

To learn more, please visit the Meetinghouse Webcast Software Beta page.
