Many a time we find some very useful stuff like widgets, awesome xyz makers, free services and lot other, that may be not as useful for us but for someone else it may mean alot..!!!
most of us who are enthusiastic and creative, search around here and there all the time. If you come across any good thing which you feel may be useful for somebody else, make sure to share it here.
Hope to see good contribution here.

Forgot to add: FREE IS PREFERRED =P

FREE ICONS: http://downloadpedia.org/Free_Icons_a...
almost all type of free icons, check out the links on the page to find out more icons.. its a treasure chest of free and mind blowing icons..!!

DROP DOWN MENUS (Me and monique struggled alot for this sometime back): http://www.flashvortex.com/index.php?...
[the only problem in this is choice of colours, you need to pay to get more choices]

Forms: Wufoo is awesome, but sometimes limit of 100 is too less. Make it double, have one more account with service ;), use jotforms as kloud9 said!!

Clocks: Getting an awesome clock is never, specially if you are picky!! check this out http://www.clocklink.com/

chatboxes: meebo, go on meebo.com and make a chat room.

guestbook: Slide look too good!! Give it a try, go on slide.com

free domain name:
example: mysite.co.cc

If you dont want a long domain name, instead of spending, get a free domain name on http://co.cc They would never snatch away your domain, per account 2 domains are free. Choose from wide variety of free domain names.
If you a want a very common domain name, like games.co.cc they might ask you to pay, but otherwise unique domain names are mostly free, short and sweet :-)
*i have registered beautybliss.co.cc with them for free ;)

The site I use to make a long URL smaller is http://www.tinyurl.com - I use it because it makes the smallest URLs I know of, thus "tinyurl".

you should mention that anything that has to be added to the head can't be used. The freewebmaster link offers both the head and body codes.

Ok, now this is not the link
But i came across a small code, i couldn't find the thread where somebody asked for "back" button to put it in window.
here is the code for back button
<!--<INPUT TYPE="button" VALUE=" BACK " onClick="history.go(-1)"> -->
this one is for forward button:
<!-- <INPUT TYPE="button" VALUE="FORWARD" onCLick="history.go(1)"> -->

Tip for novice: remove the "<!--" and "-->" if you are planning to use it in your site

Now again i cant find the thread where somebody had asked about how to put "mail this to a friend" link.
here is the code
<!--<SCRIPT language="JavaScript">
<!--
var SubjectLine='THIS TEXT WOULD DISPLAY AS LINK(keep it whatever you want), '+top.document.title;
var BodyText='You can see this page at: '+top.location.href;
var Message='Send <A HREF="mailto:?
SUBJECT='+escape(SubjectLine)+'&BODY='+
escape(BodyText)+'" OnMouseOver="status=\'Email
this page\'; return true;" TITLE="Send your friends e-mail about this page">this page<\/A> to a friend.';
var MessageIE='Send <A HREF="mailto:?
SUBJECT='+(SubjectLine)+'&BODY='+(BodyText)+'"
OnMouseOver="status=\'Email this page\'; return true;" TITLE="Send your friends e-mail about this page">this page<\/A> to a friend.';
if(document.all) { document.write(MessageIE); }
else { document.write(Message); }
// -->
-->

In above script you will see <!-- and --> 2 times each. You have to remove only the very first <!-- and the very last -->. Please do not remove the <!-- and --> from anywhere else

Try www.mobclique.com, like My Space and the other social site, but this is like combining My Space, You Tube, Craig's list and Ebay....

Hi synthasiters. Hope the people here are still doing the same thing, building sites, having sleepless nights, helping each other and at the end of the day creating master pieces :)
Just stopped by, as i was surfing. Sadly i couldn't complete my grand site due to my academics.. but i will surely do it in vacations.. patience of just 2 more months...

Anyways new people might have got bored who have no idea what the hell i m talking about(and why the hell i m talking this on this useful thread :-P ).. i will come to the point....

lot of people wanted a feature where their users can submit files or entries for various reasons like competition, gallery building etc.. so here i found this
http://blog.box.net/?p=759#more-759
This service is FREE and provided by box.net
You just need to have a free account at box.net
Though i havent used it personally due to lack of time, hope it helps others.
Suggestions and comments on this are welcome as i m keen to have a feedback on this.

so lemme move out of here to check out the surprises by synthasite developers with all new updates.
Happy site building
