Exporting Data

May 16, 2009
Chadwick Meyer
Did you know that you can export all the data from your site? For example, you can export your Account contacts, Blog Articles, My Pages, Profiles, Store Sales data, Products, etc. You own your data and you can take it with you. How do you achieve this great feat? Every list page in the Control Panel has a Search button above the list. When this is clicked the search options appear (sometimes they are already open by default). You can perform a custom search, or just export the full list. Above the search options is a little button that says ...

Presenting the Folsom Series: Check Out the New Set of Free Templates

May 15, 2009
Chadwick Meyer
We've been on a roll lately and that has meant a lot of upgrades and new features for our clients. Our goal is to increase the number of options people have for Free Design Skins, so that everyone can find something that is both professional and a good fit for their website. We're getting there. The new Folsom Series includes 4 different color schemes: red, purple, blue and green. It has plenty of areas for personalization, including: a large standard sized image slideshow area, welcome text, quotes, and modules on the home page, and ...

User Friendliness

May 14, 2009
Chadwick Meyer
When we first created Gutensite, we wanted it to be powerful and flexible so that we could use the framework to build any site for any client. And in the hands of experts it has performed amazingly. However, as we began to open up our platform to anyone who wanted a free site, it became obvious that power and user friendliness are often at odds with one another, especially when a good percentage of our users (especially those with Free Lite versions) initially start  building their site with absolutely zero knowledge of how to use Gutensite, ...

Another Set of New Free Design Skin Templates

May 11, 2009
Chadwick Meyer
We finished up a new set of free designs last week. In keeping with our San Francisco street naming motif, these ones are called "Laurel" and there are three options for color and accents. They are a high end, modern but elegant design with a prominent image promotional area on the home page, as well as the option for individual unique images on each subsequent page (for those who really want to customize the design). Anyone who uses this template will instantly look like a very established, well funded organization. So go get started!

New Endeavour Template

May 07, 2009
Chadwick Meyer
We have installed a new bold template called Endeavour, in honor of HMS Endeavour a Royal Navy research ship which was commanded at one point by Captain Cook on his first voyage of discovery in 1768. Our Endeavour has a large photo slideshow area on the home page, ample featured content areas, large chunky links, and some great hidden features. For example, individual pages can specify their own unique image which will show up in the header. If a page doesn't specify an image, it will display one of several random images you set for all ...

New Cost Calculator

May 02, 2009
Chadwick Meyer
We've added a great new Cost Calculator to our Cost Page that we hope will clear up a lot of confusion. It's amazing what a mini-app like this can do to help people visualize their whole project. What used to require 4 different pages of explanation and comparison, can now be done in one small chart. It's fun to use and hopefully people will better understand all the service options available. This sort of a calculator is something that lots of clients should consider adding to their site, because like a picture is worth a thousand words, a ...
