I am having a nightmare please help

I am trying to upload a menu i have produced on visual menu maker i have know idea about how to go about this at all as a novice all the jargon is giving me a headache.

This is what it tells you to do but its giving me a headache :-

Adding your Menu to an Existing Web Page

In an HTML editor or Notepad, open the target HTML page into which you wish to place your menu.

Press the button below. This will copy the text in the text area below into the clipboard. In the Target HTML page, place the cursor on an empty line between the and tags and paste the clipboard text there.

Copy tag text to clipboard

Press the button below. This will copy the text in the text area below into the clipboard. In the Target HTML page, place the cursor on an empty line between the and tags and paste the clipboard text there. If your menu is statically positioned, insert the clipboard text at the specific location in your web page, where you want the menu to appear. Upload the Target HTML page to any location on your website.

Copy tag text to clipboard

Save the Target HTML page opened in your editor. Provided that you have an open Internet connection, the menu should now work within the Target HTML page. You can upload the Target HTML page to any location on your website.

The file vm-style.css, located in folder C:\Documents and Settings\User.COMPUTERNAME\My Documents\webwander is the Style Sheet that describes the appearance of your menu. If you wish to manually make changes to your menu's appearance, edit vm-style.css and then re-upload it to the same location where it is on your website — http://[YourDomainName]/visualmenu/vm..., thus replacing the original.

ANY help would be great

Hi ethan0904

Those instructions are written for if you were building your website from scratch using HTML and CSS. In SynthaSite you work with an existing style and you drag and drop widgets to add content to your pages. While we do have an HTML editor that allows you to add some custom HTML to your page, you still work within the context of your chosen style.

The instructions above involve eding the section of your page and uploading HTML files to your resource manager. Neither of these things are possible in SynthaSite.

Please tell me what sort of menu you are trying to create and perhaps I can suggest an alternative that will work with SynthaSite.
