Design Preview on Demo Sites

March 29, 2012
Chadwick Meyer
We've added Design Preview controls on all our demo sites, which let you see the same website in different design skins. Some of our skins have several theme options, and you can toggle between these as well. This is a great way to imagine how your site might look in different designs. We've done a ton of updates to old and new design skins, and released them as 2.0 versions that are now the defaults. But if you are using a version of the free designs skins from before 1 week ago, or you have an old custom design that is perhaps getting out ...

Setup Ecommerce Tracking with Google Analytics

March 15, 2012
Chadwick Meyer
We are in the process of adding more features to integrate your site with Google Analytics' powerful tracking capabilities. We've just added some standard conversion tracking for account creation, store sales, and form submissions, as well as Split A/B testing. We'll blog about that more shortly. But we realize that we have a lot of analytics functionality already available that most people don't know about. In particular, you should be aware that Gutensite has direct integration with Google Analytics' Ecommerce Tracking system. View our ...

Preview Blog before Scheduled Published Date

March 06, 2012
Chadwick Meyer
We've added the ability for you to preview your blogs before they publish. Batching your work is a great idea, so it is a common (and recommended) practice to write a week's worth of blogs and then schedule them to publish on specific days. The blog articles will not show up on your site until that date. But often times you want to see what it looks like before hand, or you want to schedule a third party social media tool like HootSuite to tweet and facebook the blog post on that day. So we've added a link in the List and Edit view that ...

Activate New Features and Hide Unused Features

March 05, 2012
Chadwick Meyer
Gutensite is a powerful Content Management System, with lots of industry-specific, niche functionality, as well as a lot of advanced settings that give you a lot of control over various aspects of your site. But our goal is to keep things as simple as possible so that it's intuitive and easy to use. One of the ways we do this, is by allowing you to specify which features you want on your site. So we have a features page that lets you toggle features on/off as you need them. This will hide unnecessary fetures in the Admin, so if you don't ...

New HTML5 Slideshow Throughout Site

March 03, 2012
Chadwick Meyer
We've gone through the entire CMS and replaced the old Flash slideshows with new HTML5 compatible slideshows that look much nicer and best of all will display on iPads, iPhones, and other Mobile Devices that support HTML5. We've also simplified the way slideshows are created throughout all the content types. Before you had to create a slideshow and then select it in the page you wanted to display it on. But now, you just select the images you want for whatever content type you are editing, e.g. blog, news, portfolio, etc. And if there are ...

Show Multiple Locations and Get Directions on Your Map

March 02, 2012
Chadwick Meyer
We've upgraded all the maps on your site to look much nicer, and they now include street view as well as the ability for visitors to find directions to your location. And if you have a business or church with multiple locations, we now have a great way of displaying all your locations on the same map, and letting people choose which location they want to directions for. The Map and Directions page also displays the contact information for each of your locations so it's conveniently available without any customization. To activate the ...
