Hi sunshine

To create tabs in your menu:
1) Click the "New Page" button
2) You will be prompted to give your page a name
3) When you click "ok" a new page will be created and a tab will automatically be added to your menu.

The colour of the tabs is determined by the style you select and right now there is no way to change the colour.

Please let me know if you have any trouble creating your tabs.

I tried what you said, but it's coming on the left side of the page, and in the middle of the screen it says to click and drag. The tab that I meant was it will be on the top of page. I saw it on other syntha sites so i know it's possible.

Perhaps you need to choose a new template. Some of the templates are configured to have tabs along the top, while others have them in a side bar.

Hi sunshine

I was about to say what gaijingirl said. Can you tell us which style you are using? Either describe it to us, or check the name in by clicking the "change style" button.

Then I can tell you if this is a bug or if it is a feature of the style you are using.

Im using the first style. It's blue with like space plants on it. The banner is 700x150 px if that helps.

Hi Monalisa,

The tabs appear when you create a new page - this is your menu that people can click on.

If you look at your page you will see "home" or "index" on your page, depending on the style you have chosen they will appear either across the top of the page, down the left hand side, or down the right hand side.

The format of your page will stay the same, the tabs will just be added to it.

I hope this answers your question.

i get that...i have tabs on the tside of my page. however /i would like there to be other tabs I can put maybe on the top of the page as well. And I have seen some synthasite pages that have alot of different things going on but i am not sure how they go them because I do not see all of those options available on synthasite...is it possible that i can take things from other places online to add as htmls as formats on my page?

Hi Monalisa,

You can definitely add HTML to your site, here's how:
1. Drag-and-drop an HTML widget from the sidebar on the right onto your page (the icon for this is a blue sphere)
2. An HTML editor will open up that will allow you to write or paste your code (use ctrl-V or right-click > paste)
3. When you are done, click "ok" and you will see the way that the HTML displays on your page

There are many HTML features or widgets that you can add to your page this way. Some great sites to visit for more information are:

Please remember, the HTML has to be completely accurate for it to work!
