Hi everyone.

I am a relatively new user of Synthasite and I think it is an amazing product! Kudos to the development team!

Quick question: Am I correct in saying that it is currently not possible to edit the underlying HTML code to change the page background colour etc? If not, can anyone point me in the right direction to find some info on this?

Thanks
Lawrence

Hi Lawrence

Welcome to SynthaSite! We are happy to have you and we appreciate your support and positive feedback.

While it is possible to add custom HTML via the HTML editor, you are correct that it is not possible to edit the uderlying HTML code - you work within the context of your chosen style.

There are a number of styles that allow you to upload your own background, so perhaps this might be a working alternative for you:

At the moment have 6 styles where you can add a background:

1. Tastelessly
2. Burlap
3. CleanSlate
4. BareNecessities
5. NoFrills
6. SqueakyClean

These styles can be found in the first 10 of the style selection (click on 'Change Style' to see the style selection).

To change your background on your page, follow these steps:

1. Click on the "Properties" tab on the sidebar on the right.
2. At the bottom of the "Properties tab", under "Background image" click on the three dots (...) to choose or upload an image.
3. Click on "OK" and the image will be added as a background to your page.

Please note that the background will apply to that specific page and not to the whole site. To remove the background image, follow the same steps above and click on the 'None' button in the image selector dialog box that opens.

Thank you for the quick response Monique!

So in theory I should be able to create a bmp file filled with the background colour of the I want and display that on a page? That should work perfectly...

Yes, that should work. Post a link to your site when you are done. We love to see innovative uses of our styles!
