Hi there,

Welcome to SynthaSite! Perhaps a good place to start would be to check out our tutorials (www.synthasite.com/tutorials). If you have any specific questions, you are welcome to come and post them here. Here are some pointers to adding text, pictures and new pages:

To add text to your page:
1. Drag and drop a text widget from the sidebar on the right onto your page (it looks like a piece of writing paper and a pen)
2. Click inside the green text box and start typing or paste your text
3. Use the text editing toolbar to format your text. This toolbar looks like a toolbar you will have seen in any word processor you might have used and it displays across the top of your page whenever you click on a text widget.

To add pictures to your page:
1. Drag and drop an image widget onto your page. The image widget is located in the "Properties" sidebar on the right of your screen directly below the icon marked "Text"
2. The file manager dialogue box will pop up. You will have the option to upload images from your computer or choose from images which have already been uploaded to your File Manager.
3. To upload a picture from your computer, click on the first option: "Select" next to "Your Computer". A second box will pop up and you will be able to browse your computer's folders to select a file to upload.
4. Click on the uploaded picture file you want to add and click "OK" and the image will be added to your page.
5. You can also add pictures inside a text widget by clicking on "insert image" on the text editing toolbar (the icon that looks like a green tree in a picture frame, roughly in the middle of the toolbar).

To add additional items to your menu:
1) Click on "New Page" - the third icon from the left above the SynthaSite tabs
2) A dialogue box will open up that will prompt you to give your page a name
3) When you click "ok" a new page will be created and a link will automatically be added to your menu

Happy website building!

The tutorials under the help menu are very helpful. Included is the how to publish your site tutorial as well as many many other very helpful one's. Good luck and as a helpful hint use an apostrophe instead of a comma in the word I'm :)
