As we continue developing the next 2.0 version of our platform, there are a lot of features we wish we had all along in 1.0. In general, we are trying to spend all our time developing 2.0, but if the features are easy to implement we've try to add some basic version of them to 1.0 as well.

One of the new features that is really important in 2.0 is the ability to visually select the layout of your page, from a lot of beautiful alternative layout options. For example, you may want your content showing up in list page design that looks like a landing page with slideshow and modules, or in a 1, 2 or 3 column image grid, or a text list, or in a calendar, or on a map, etc. Or you may want your profile to have a large photo across the top of the page versus a smaller photo embedded on the right. You'll have that flexibility.

For 1.0, we have just added is the ability to select a few alternative layouts on some of the popular content types.

Now for Profiles, you can select the standard ...

We've launched two additional new free design templates called "Fantôme" and "Sken", which are described by our designer as:

Polished and sexy with an epic full-width slideshow and a home page profile area that places your profile image and contact info front and center.

These two templates are similiar, except the Sken is light while the Fantôme is dark.

These new designs are fully responsive and mobile friendly, with a collapsable side menu drawer that hides the menu and slides out on smaller devices. There are also nice touches of CSS animations and transitions that give the site a polished UI.

To experience the new designs, definitely click around the Fantôme Demo site as well as the Sken Demo site and view the different color themes for each.

Maybe you'll consider upgrading your own website to this new beautiful free template if you need a refresh and want a design that is really ...

We have designed a bunch of new free and limited edition design templates that we're rolling out over the next few weeks. Checkout our Design page for a list of new designs that are available or coming soon.

First to be released is the our "Bild" template. This is characterized as:

An engaging, investigative news style design with a full-width slideshow. Primarily black & white with small powerful color accents.

But a picture is worth a thousand words, so look at the demo site and click around the options.

This is our first template with a floating menu. And of course it features a lot of nice CSS animation touches to make the links and buttons come alive.

If you haven't updated your website design in a while, or if you are still using a custom design that isn't mobile friendly and "Responsive", consider updating to this new free ...

One of our new agency partners is working in a very specific niche to provide fitness clubs with a bundled package which includes a Gutensite website that is carefully integrated with another common third party industry platform. This integration requires a lot of expertise and work to setup on a case by case basis, so he turned to Gutensite to help him automate the process of setting up new websites in an efficient and scalable way so he can serve hundreds and even thousands of clients.

Fortunately we already have a great automated setup process. When someone creates a new website, they select an "emphasis" (e.g. business, church, realtor, health & fitness, etc) and we are able to prepopulate their new website with default menu structure and content that makes sense for that type of website. This is really helpful so that new users aren't overwhelmed and forced to start from scratch. It's easier to edit an existing structure than to try to figure out where to even begin.

We're ...
