Hi Sodapop5000,

Right now it is not possible for visitors to upload files or images directly to your site. All content on your site needs to be posted by you. I am going to suggest two options for you to consider:
1. You could collect information from your visitors via a contact form and you would receive an email alert when someone filled in your form. You could then post anything they sent to your site. Here is a link to a post that will tell you how to add a form:
2. The other option is to put an email link on your site. To add an email link to your website you can either type in your link text or use an image (use the "insert image" icon on the text editing toolbar to add an image inside a text widget).
- Highlight the text or image and click "insert link" on the text editing toolbar
- A link editor will open up and the third option in the link editor dialogue box allows you to create a link to an email address
- Simply type in your email address and click "ok" To test that the link is working, save and preview your page. When you click on your email link, an email will open up in your default email program with the address already filled in.

Here are the steps for adding a forum to your site:

1. Drag and drop a Widgetbox Gallery widget onto your page.
2. A dialogue box will open, search for 'forum' to see all the widgets available.
3. Choose the widget you would like to use on your site and customise the settings.
4. Click on the green 'Get Widget' button and it will be saved and added to your page.
5. Save and preview your page to view the widget.

OR is a great forum that is easily embedded onto your page. Go to, follow the steps to create and customise your forum. Then click on "Embedding Options" at the top of the page and copy the HTML code.
Back on your SynthaSite, follow these steps:

1. Drag and drop an HTML widget from the sidebar onto your page.
2. Paste the code into the HTML editor that opens.
3. Click on ok and your forum will be added to your page.
