I have been doing the text box, add image, make thumbnail, add new page, link thumbnail to page with larger photo. But when you click on any one of my thumbnails, they all are linked to the same photo. What's going on? I have seperate pages for each photo, what am I doing wrong?

Hi LinzB

If each of your larger photos is on it's own page, then you should be able to turn each of your thumbnails into a link to the page with the corresponding larger image.

Could you check that each link is to a separate page? If your links still end up directing to the same image could you do the following:
1) Click on the "Help" menu
2) Click "report bug"
3) Fill in the form and send it to us

The other alternative is to send me the URL of your site if it is published already so that I can take a look and see if I can figure out what has gone wrong.

Hopefully we can help you work this out!

Hey Monique, I've reported the bug and I've tried it again. Still doing the same thing. I have tried it with the first three thumbnails on my page. I have made them small, created a new page for each of the larger images and linked them. But when you click on the thumbnails they are link to the last photo I've tried. If the report doesn't do anything, I'll email you again. I haven't published the page yet. (I'm highlighting the photo, pressing the link button, selecting the page and pressing ok.)

Thanks for emailing support. We seem to have a bug that is causing the problem you describe. We are working on it but the solution is going to take a while. In the meantime it might make your life easier to use our Flickr lightbox widget. See my email for further information.

I am really sorry that you are having this hassle!

Hey Monique, thanks again. I am going to wait it out I think for the bug to get fixed, just because I don't want to make all those photos that public (not yet anyway) so, for privacy reasons, I am going to just stick with synthasite if that's ok. Thank you again for the email, if we can't get it fixed in the next little while, I'll try flickr. Again I appreciate it, and yeah I know I put alot of work into it, but it's just something I love to do :p.
