i) Click "save" at the bottom.


j) On the screen that appears, click "I'm Finished" at the bottom.


 

2) LINK UP YOUR CCB ACCOUNT TO OUR CONTENT MANAGEMENT SYSTEM (CMS):


a) Log in to the CMS at https://cms.churchplantmedia.com and click "Admin".

b) Click "Settings".

c) Click the green "Link your CCB account" button.


 

 


d) In the popup that appears, enter your CCB URL (the part that precedes "ccbchurch.com" in your CCB URL), plus your CCB API username and password that you created in step 1D. Click "Add Service". 


 


e) A confirmation message will appear that says "You are currently linked to your CCB account."


f) If you'd like to display events from CCB on your website calendar, then toggle on the CCB Events button. Once toggled on, you can choose whether you'd like to show all of the events from all of CCB's event groups, or just events from certain groups. In the following example, all events from all event groups will appear on the website calendar. NOTE: If you toggle CCB events on, any place on your website that displays events (your events page, plus any event lists) will pull from CCB instead of our events module.

 


g) If you'd like to display the group finder on your website, then toggle on the CCB Group Finder button. Once toggled on, you can choose whether you'd like to display groups from all group types, or just groups from certain group types. In the following example, all groups that are published to the "care / small group" group type in CCB will display in the group finder. NOTE: most churches will have multiple group types in CCB. We recommend that you publish all of your small groups to a single group type (for example, small groups). 

 



h) Click "update settings" on the right sidebar.



i) If you toggled on CCB Events, then your CCB events will now appear in your calendar and event lists. If you toggled on CCB Group Finder, then your group finder will now appear at www.yourdomain.com/group-finder.
