SynthaSite just rolled out another release of new features today.

1) Layouts!
You asked for a way to create more professional looking sites. We listened. Click the new "Change Layout" button on the far left of your screen and select from 9 different options! You can start still with a blank page if you wish, or use a preset layout with drop zones to give you greater control over your content. Drag and drop widgets vertically OR horizontally to easily achieve the best look and feel. You can use the same layout for your whole site, or a different one on each page! The layouts work with all of our existing styles, so whether you are new to SynthaSite, or an old hand, you can start making use of this feature today. We look forward to seeing what all you wonderfully creative site builders do with it!



2) A new style.
We have added a new style called "Burlap" which is optimized for the new layouts. The Burlap style supports custom banner and background images, and there are four beautiful color palettes to choose from. There has never been a better time to build a new website, or give an old one a "make over"!

3) Searchable help topics!
SynthaSite has always offered tutorials and FAQs, but as we have grown into a more complex, feature rich tool we have recognized the need to grow our library of help files and make them searchable. Check out our new support page, and use the searchbox to ask any site building questions you have. If the answer isn't there - drop us an email. We will be sure to add it.
Additional features: submit a support query and check the updates online using your private code. Vote on the most and least helpful topics. Related links: Just read the basics or click through to other related topics if you want to learn more.



We are committed to making site building easier and more fun for all our customers. We look forward to your feedback on our latest release!

Hi Joe,

We do disable logins while we update, but your site should be up and running normally now. Is this not the case for you?
Can you tell me what you see when you try to log in, or what error message you are getting.
I would like to help you get back into your site as quickly as possible.

Hi Ruth,
Many thanks for getting back ref this problem.
I had also sent an email to support and the service and support was superb. Problem was solved within a few moments, guess some thing slipped whilst the update was taking place.

Now back on the site and many thanks again.
Quite frankly best site I have come across in some ten years of surfing.
Kind regards
Joe.

Loving the page layouts. My site highlights programs that I am in charge of at a YMCA (www.ymcaalkids.org), and the more professional it can look, the better. Very easy and haven't noticed any bugs. I also like that more styles are offering customizalbe banners.

Additional note..... if you drop an object (i.e. a picture) into a zone that is smaller than the object, the zone will automacically re-size itself for the object, or you can re-size the object without having to take it to Picnik or photoshop and then upload it again.

Awesome new feature!!! This is perfect for my site!....Just a suggestion...instead of having to put a banner image for each page...are having to put some kind of widget in every page...synthasite should have a tool that will apply it to all pages...just a suggestion..Other than that....Rock on Synthasite!
