Blogging adds keyword rich content to your website which vastly increases your search engine rankings and visitor appeal. Our blog feature allows you to organize multiple blogs in nested categories and to choose how many blog entries to display per page. Blogs can be associated with images, documents and media. Archives can be searched by date or keyword.

Portfolio images can be placed in nested categories and each portfolio piece can contain multiple-image slideshows. Slideshows can be labeled with date, location, description and a url. Slideshows with more than 3 images can be viewed also as a list.

 

News

Topical Articles

If you routinely have news to post, statistics or awards you want potential clients to know about, our news tool is a great way to do that. These articles provide more searchable content to help boost your page rankings. Old news items are automatically organized and archived in an easily searchable format.

Topical Articles work much the same as news articles. They can be associated with related articles, with slideshows, and with media as well as relevant documents. You can set up a module on your home page to automatically display excerpts from your latest articles along with date and author.

 

Media

Custom Pages

Post audio and video files, organize them in nested categories, associate them with images, other media, related documents and other related pages on the website. Detail pages can display an image, description, speaker, related downloadable pdfs and articles. Your media library comes with advanced searching capabilities including custom filters and custom fields.

Your website comes with a wide variety of prebuilt content, but sometimes you just need to make your own custom page. Start with a blank page, and add text, images, slideshows, multimedia, upcoming events or extra links. You can style the content with pullouts, lists and special headers using our content layout templates.

The calendar allows for advanced repetition options and mini promo modules on your website can be setup to automatically display upcoming events on your home page or elsewhere.

Image Library

Downloadable Documents

Organize your image library in nested categories and upload multiple images from inside each feature in your control panel using our image uploader. You can also batch in a series of images using an ftp program and you can create an image profile to set your own custom sizing for any image type you plan to upload often.

Documents can also be organized in nested categories. They display in a list with icons to let users immediately recognize the file type.

 

Helpful Links

Member Accounts

Tour links tool helps you create a library of resource links for your visitors to reference. They can be searched and organized into nested categories using your control panel.

Gutensite allows you to enable visitor accounts on your website so that people can become members by making their own account, which allows them to access special benefits (like email alerts, wish lists, and any resources or pages you want to limit to members only). It also allows you to gather contact information from visitors and to build a larger client or member base. This functions as a CRM (Client Relationship Management) that ties visitor activity throughout all the functionality of the site.

 

FAQ

Promo Modules

With our FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) feature, you can educate visitors in a question/answer format. You can also group your questions together by category and related questions. This feature is great for offering technical support or highlighting basic information about your organization.

Promo Modules is a general term for small excerpts that can be placed anywhere in your website. They can be dynamically generated from your calendar, blog or news or you can create a small list of helpful links or an image linked to another place on your website. Our home page designs usually allow for one large image module and several small content modules. You can also place multiple modules in the sidebar of specific pages and sections.

Offer a directory list of common services or recommended service professionals in a community. For example, you may create Service Categories like "Electric", "Cable" or "Pest Control". And then for each category list the names and contact information for each provider. This list can be generic, or it can be restricted to each city or community.
