Hi Amy

Building a website with Synthasite is a good way to go. Just click on "create a website" button. A new window will pop up asking you if you want to create a web page or a blog. You'll need to give it a title. Then, you'll be taken to a template page and you pick which template you want.

If you selected web page, then you'll be taken to the "home" page. There you can add elements and widgets.

If you selected blog, then you'll be taken to your first blog page where you can make your first entry.

Hope that helps.

Hi Amy,

I can see Littleus has set you up on the right path. To add to his reply:

Now you need to add content to your site. In the "Content" sidebar at the right of your screen, there are widgets. Widgets allow you to add things such as text (writing) and pictures onto your webpage. You add these to your page by clicking on them with your mouse and then, holding the button of your mouse down, dragging them across the screen. If you are doing it properly a grey image of the widget will move across the page. When the widget is over the page let go of your mouse button. You will then be able to start editing the widgets to add content such as text, images and videos. What is a Widget?

If you want to make a new page click on "New Page" (the third button from the right above your page), you will be asked to give the new page a name, then you can add content to it using the widgets.

These are just a few steps to get you up and running. For detailed, step-by-step instructions please search our or check the tutorials -

My suggestion is that you start creating your site using our help topics and tutorials as a guide. Then, if you run into any particular problem, you are welcome to email us and we will do our best to help you.
