Default Coming Soon Page

December 15, 2010
Chadwick Meyer
We now have a default "Coming Soon" page that lists your basic contact information and a message to visitors that the site is under development. This page can be customized if a client needs it to be more branded. It's useful for clients that have an extensive development cycle and don't want their new site to be found by the public. When the site is in development, it will automatically redirect all page requests to this coming soon page, unless the site is being viewed in our secure development mode. The site is also set to turn away ...

Announcing Gutensite FX

December 15, 2010
Chadwick Meyer
We've had requests from several clients for a simple way to add effects to their pages, e.g. to allow a button to toggle open or close additional paragraphs of information. So we've created a simple Javascript Library called Gutensite FX, based on the Mootools Library that is already running on every site. If Gutensite FX is enabled, you can add a CSS class to any element, and it becomes a toggle button. Add another CSS class to any other element, and that becomes the area that opens or closes. It's that simple. We only have a couple ...

Place Modules Anywhere

December 13, 2010
Chadwick Meyer
We have added additional module areas throughout the site, so you can now add modules to any sidebar, and any header or footer of a page. Plus on any basic page, you can put a module in the main column (above or below content) or in a side column (with the content to the side and the module in a small column). Basic pages already allow you to add a lot of extra specialty information under the "Extras" tab, such as pull-out quotes, headings, sub headings, info lists, etc. These show up in a beautiful 3/4 column layout which adds a lot of ...

Calendar Details in Lightbox

December 10, 2010
Chadwick Meyer
We have upgraded the default calendar functionality so that when an event is clicked in the Calendar or List view, it opens up a nicely designed "lightbox" with all the details for the event. This can be closed and the visitor is still on the original calendar page. This makes viewing calendar events more convenient. Previously we had a details preview that popped up and the visitor had to then go to another details page, then return to the calendar, etc. Our upgrade provides a much more streamlined workflow. We also took the time to ...

New Setting to Disable SEO Sitemap

December 08, 2010
Chadwick Meyer
We've added a new setting (accessible on the Admin > Site Info) page, to allow you to disable the Search Engine Sitemap. By default all our sites are SEO optimized, but in some cases, a client may not want the search engines to index the site (until they are ready). So this option will turn off the sitemap.xml data, which search engines use to provide a map of what pages to index. It will also add a meta tag that tells the search engine to go away for now and not index the site.
