Hi Monalisa,

Here's how to add links to your page:

1. Drag and drop a text widget onto your page.
2. In the text widget type the words that you want people to click on (this is your link text)
3. Highlight the link text and then click on the link button (it's the
10th button from the left in the text editing tool bar, and looks like
the link in a chain)
4. A link editor dialogue box will open up and you will be given 4
options. You can link to an email address, an external URL, a page on
your own site or a file on your computer.
5. Click on the option appropriate for you.
6. Then type the URL or address of the site that you want to link TO in the appropriate box and click on OK.

You will then have a link on your page. To check that your link is working preview your page and then click on the link.

This is a brief explanation of how to add links, we have written a
tutorial that shows the process in more detail. Here is the link: SynthaSite Video Tutorial: Creating Links

Regards,
Kershnee

If you want, I have a code that will open up in a pop up window that will go directly to a specific product.

You can look at it on my own site. Just click on a product.
www.kloud9clothing.synthasite.com

All you have to do is edit it the way you want it! :)

Monalisa, this may help you:

The first thing you need to do is register on PayPal. Visit www.paypal.com to setup your account.

You can add PayPal widgets by using the Widgetbox Gallery, this is how:
1. Drag and drop a Widgetbox Gallery widget onto your page
2. A dialogue box will open, search for 'paypal'
3. Choose the paypal button that you would like to use on your site
4. Click on the Settings button (looks like a tool!) on the left to edit your settings
5. Click on the green 'Get Widget' button and it will be saved and added to your page
6. Save and preview your page to view the widget!

You can also add PayPal buttons by using the HTML widget. When you have registered for your PayPal account, copy the HTML code they provide, then do the following:
1. Drag and drop an HTML widget from the sidebar on the right onto your page
2. Paste the code (supplied by PayPal) into the HTML editor
3. Click "ok" and your PayPal button will then be embedded on your page.

You would repeat this procedure for as many items as you want to sell -- in other words, if you have 20 items, you'll need 20 'Add to Cart' buttons. You'll also need to make at least one 'View Cart' button somewhere, so that customers will be able to see the items ordered, their total bill, and give them a chance to continue shopping or proceed to checkout. Again, this code is supplied by PayPal website, click on the Learn How PayPal works link to learn more, and follow their instructions to get started.

you guys are giving me all great advice but i am still not understanding how i can set it up to where a person can click on my product and it can take them to an order form that tells them how much they can order and what size...
and when I put the link on the picture of my choice it worked..however..how can make it so that people would not be able to save my pictures or steal them from online
