Hi Ebony,

You can definitely edit and update your site. Once you publish your site the yellow "Publish My Site" button will change to an "Update My Site" button.

To update your site:
1) Log in to your account and open your site
2) Edit your site as normal
3) When you are done, click "update my site" and all your latest changes will be immediately added to your live site.
4) When you view your updated website, remember to click on the Refresh button to make sure you're seeing the latest version in your browser.

Updating your site frequently helps your search engine rankings, so we have tried to make this as easy for you as possible.

Hi
I already have a web site via synthasite, so know how to edit and update web site.
However, now that I have a blog site, I want to keep the blogs and comments when I edit. How do I edit from internet, to synthasite, to internet?

Hi PinkV,

Updating your blog is done the same way as updating your site - you login to your SynthaSite, make the changes and then click on 'Update my Site'

To manage your comments, you log into your Disqus account and moderate the comments.

If you were looking for different information, please let me know.

That is great. I am just concerned that when I update my Blogweb site with a new version, it will remove the discussions. After all, when I update a web site this is what happens....

It won't remove the comments that have been added and moderated. Could you let me know what kind of discussions you have on your website that are removed? Perhaps post your URL so that we can take a look.
