We are extremely excited to be nearing the end of a major Gutensite platform rebuild which will offer a completely new design, workflow and modern framework. This ambitious work on the 2.0 platform has taken all of our attention for the last 2 years. We will be sharing more information about 2.0 really soon, but in the meantime, one benefit of this development is going to be available for all our clients on the current 1.0 platform as well.

So the good news is that we have just finished our new system for automatically providing free SSL certificates to every domain and website on our platform!

In the past, the only way to get an SSL certificate was to have us purchase one privately and then manually install it (for a cost of $100). Now SSL Certificates are automatic and free, because we developed a sophisticated system that interfaces with an open certificate authority called Let's Encrypt and automatically creates, installs and renews these certificates every 3 months (which is ...

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 ...

Great news, we've updated the MLS pages to be more beautiful and optimized for viewing on mobile browsers!

We are excited to announce that we have redesigned all the MLS pages so that they have a fresh look that is beautiful and also optimized to look and work great on Mobile devices. There are still the same options to display the properties in a grid, list or map view, and all display beautifully on Mobile devices. And we have added larger photos for MLSs that have HD images, a much nicer slideshow, and many other great enhancements.

Samples

To see a live example of the new designs, visit an MLS list page on the new Alain Pinel Investment Group website in San Francisco or a property details page on the Gullixons website in Menlo Park.

When Will These Updates Happen?

Because we believe this is an improvement for all Realtors, we will automatically upgrade the default MLS pages to this new design in two weeks, on October 2.

But you can opt out if you don't want your MLS pages ...

We released a new free design skin that we hope you love. Part museum exhibit, part fashion spread, the Siggstein is designed to show off beautiful images and is ideal for portfolios, retail and anyone who wants a site with a lot of visual impact. The name is old Norse from "siggr" meaning victory and "stein" meaning stone. The design is clean, image-based, a little edgy and comes in 5 colors including an exceptionally sexy black version. Visit our design page to try the different colors.

As promised, we're working on creating several new free design skins so that you have more choices. We believe in the importance of great design, but we know that not everyone can afford the labor intensive creative process of a custom design. So we want to make sure that there are plenty of good alternative options for clients on a budget. These free skins work great, exactly as they are, or for a couple thousand you can customize them to meet your specific needs, and still save a lot over a fully custom design.

We've just released a new free design skin called, "Oak Grove", named after one of our local streets here in Walnut Creek. It's a warm and inviting design, with rustic undertones, and a trustworthy ethos.

There are a lot of extra touches that make this design polished and allow for further customization for each client. There are 3 main image areas on the home page. The third image area can be swapped out with a promo module, so you could have it be an image rotator ...

We've got a great new free design skin that just launched called "Brockmann". If your site is ready for a refreshing new look, you should consider this new design. We'll be introducing a lot of new designs in the coming months, and retiring many of the old designs (you can keep using them, but they will be no longer promoted for new use).

The template is inspired by and named after Swiss graphic designer Josef Müller-Brockmann, who is known for clean and simple design, masterful use of typography, and for advocating the use of the grid system.

We've spent a lot of time making sure that all the modules are custom designed specifically for this template, and the template allows you to upload your own logo, in order to create a more finished look right out of the box without the need for custom design. The home page features a large promo area slideshow with controls and the ability for each image to link to a featured page on your site. We've given a lot of attention to detail, at ...
