Ok two parts to this question. One, having problems when I am finished editing a box when I click off of it it does not save the changes and simply deletes everything or makes it where you can only see one line. Two, how about a forum?

Hi NASC

I am very concerned to hear about the problem you are having with editing text. Can you tell me what browser you are using? It would also help if you could tell me the name of the style you are using, or describe it to me.

Unfortunately we don't have our own forum widget yet, although we hope to add one in future. However, you can add a comment box/mini-forum to your site as follows:
1) Open the "Widgets" folder in the sidebar on the right of your screen
2) Drag and drop a "Widget Box" icon onto your page
3) Click on the link in the dialog and you will be taken to Widget Box
4) Browse for a comment box or mini forum, and when you find one you like, click "get widget"
5) Copy the code and paste it into the dialog box in SynthaSite

Alternatively you can google for "free forum" or "free message board". When you find one you are happy with, create your forum and copy the HTML embed code. In SynthaSite, drag and drop an HTML widget onto your page and paste the code over the default tags in the editor. Your forum will then be embedded in your page.

Please share any additional information you have about that text bug as we want to look into this immediately.

Best wishes
Monique

Any suggestions out there on free forum with HTML embed codes premade? I know absolutely no HTML.

Hi NASC

I will look into the problem you describe in Safari. It might be useful to try it in Firefox to see if that helps at all.

As for your forum, this site seems to offer everything you need: http://www.nabble.com/
You don't need to write your own HTML - they allow you to customize your forum and provide you with the code - so you can simply copy and paste as I explained above.

I chose an add-on forum from http://www.freeforums.org/ to compliment a Synthasite site of mine. Traveling around the web, I have found their template is very common and people do not balk at it. It's free and works well so far. The admin controls are so detailed it's a bit to absorb in one day, but it allows you to adjust on the fly. I'm completely satisfied. It functions much better than a competing free forum I have at another location.
