You dirty dog...

How dare you beat me to it.. I aughta hop on a plane right now and come over there and well hmmm arggggg shake your hand for a great site. Not fair though because while you were hiding out being a super secret squirrel and not posting so much I was tryin to finish my site so that I can download all my info on a site as well. But noooooooo you had to ruin all my fun and do it yourself...

Well it's a very good start I must add and I am sure that you have room for more pages and are gonna turn your 1 page site into a 100 pretty soon.

I may not talk to you for a while though and might just go be silent for a couple days myself and see where that leads...

Just teasin...

Had you a chance to see overpopulated site lately???

I think I have two more pages to add in the next week and then begin 2 more sites... One for moms toys and one for dads toys which are all interconnected.

Now I see no need to do my resource site if you are doing one...;)

Had the idea for a while now.

Got a lot of ideas from your posts.
Note the button maker, ewebcounter, mouseover's
and sitemap tutorial.

Saw you hinting at doing the same thing while i was half
way through my changes. Had to work flat out.

Told you, you inspire me.

Anyway, i saw the same questions being asked by new
users all the time, so i thought if i could have all the answers
on one site i'd get more hits - ha, ha.

Wow man that site of your is really cool - visit it often.

Must be a mission to keep track of what you are doing
in the site editor. I'd hate to see what your desktop looks
like. Mine is full of snippets of code, pics, etc. - have to do
some housekeeping soon.

Just counted - got 112 icons on my desktop.
Got a 27" monitor - nice for opening multiple windows.

Moral of the story - SynthaSite = messy desktop + many
late nights.

Anyway I had the idea for creating a "promote SynthaSite"
site 1st. You were about to step on my turf there.
Maybe you can call your "resource" site "hindesite.synthasite.....
Just kidding - ha, ha

Had another look at your site just now.

Just keeps getting better and better all
the time. Not just saying that - really mean it.
Keep up the good work. Definately SOTM material.
Just made that up = "Site Of The Month"

Take note SynthaSite reps !!

Thanks Boomer... now I'm gonna be up all night changing things! The new site ROCKS bra! Everything looks great. (glad to see my site's still on it) I have bookmarked several of the links, now to add some scrolling text and mouse over buttons so I can keep up with you and ed. Speaking of mouse overs, it says "for buttons like this" but I didn't find the link????

Hi Boomer

I have just had a chance to look at your site, and all the great sites you feature. I love what you have done. You have created a very effective menu with your mouseover buttons. I love the way you are pulling together SynthaSite sites, as well as information to help with site building. I have a feeling I am going to be linking to your site often! A great resource!

I have taken note of your and Ed's pains with the file manager. We are aware that we need to work on this! Hopefully our developers can give you a way to organise the clutter in future.

We are also working on plans for a "site of the month" competition - I have a trip coming up starting today, so it might take awhile for us to launch this, but we have not forgotten. Keep an eye out for it. I think it is going to be great fun!

Hi Monique,

Here's a teeny weeny "nice to have" feature.

Sometimes there is a need for blank text in a text
widget "just spaces" in order to space your HTML
code (which is in a widget just below it),further
down the page.

It's dificult to tell the differencs between a blank
text box and an HTML widget in the site editor.
You have to open it to see what it is.

Here's a picture of what I mean:



It doesn't have to be an icon, maybe just "edit TEXT"
and "edit HTML" in the green bar.

Doesn't seem to difficult for the already busy developers
to implement does it? and it will make navigating around
the editor a lot nicer. Anyway, use it - don't use it.
I know they have a lot on their plate.

Have a safe trip.
