Hello,
If you would like to have others link to your site in an advertising manner you can give them your url and they can create a link to your site. Please let us know if this does not answer your question.

Kind Regards,
Emmy

hi emmy,
ok sweetie, i got that and it works. what i should have asked is do i have an ad code that puts a pictuer like ad that maybe is a pic of my web site page banner and the header name of my home site page? if you look at my site you will see the ad for corkin he was able to give me a code and i was able to copy and paste it to my home page, and then link it to his site by way of html placement and creat link button. thats what i think i'm looking for. i hope you can understand what i'm saying? i think thats what i'm thinking. thank you my friend donnie

to do this i right clicked on the image i wanted to use (because its the banner to my site i had to 'view background image' then right click on it again and then 'copy image location'

Then i use this code to display it (this is what you would give to your friend to add to their site)
<!--
<a href="http://hexham.info">&lt;img src="http://www.hexham.info/resources/Picn..." border=0>
-->

where it says a href change the 'hexham.info' to your site URL (keep the http:// and the " ") and where it says img src change that to the image location you copied earlier (keep it in the " ").

If you follow this slowly its very easy.
PS dont add the // <!-- and -->

Ok, I see!

Yes there are a few different ways to do this.

One way would be to create a banner image and send this to your friend. He or she can then add the image to their site and turn it into an image link.

The other option is to have the image in your File Manager and give some code for the image to be called from there. But you would always have to be careful to keep the image in your File Manager and not move it into another folder or anything as this would remove your image from another person's website.

So this is what the code would look like, you should substitute:
1. mysite.synthasite.com with your site name
2. mybanner.jpg with your banner image file name in your File Manager

<!-- <a href="http://mysite.synthasite.com">&lt;img src="http://mysite.synthasite.com/resource...> -->

What this code is saying is the image mybanner.jpg is located at http://mysite.synthasite.com/resources so call it from there, and when it is clicked on go to mysite.synthasite.com. The <!-- and --> is not part of the code but on the page here so you can see it.

I hope that makes sense! If you would like to give us your banner image file name in the File Manager and your url I can create the exact code without all the replace this and replace that.

do you use firefox? - just right click the banner or picture you want to use(0n the published page, not in your editor) then goto 'view background image' then right clcik on it again and goto 'copy image location' now you have the location of the banner - paste that into the 'img src' as emmy shows you above

Hi Donnie,

The banner you are referring to is the default banner image of the style (template) you've chosen. You can either use that one on your site or upload your own by clicking on the white text in the banner area. For more information on changing the banner at the top of your page, you can click on this link: http://cs.synthasite.com/index.php?pg....

The steps Lee and Emmy have given above are to add a banner to the body of your page. You won't be able to add code to the top banner area of your site.

I hope that helps, please come back to us if you have any other questions.

1. right click on this image below then 'save image as' . name the file - advert
2. upload the photo to your sites resources folder in your 'file manager'

3 Add this code to any site
<!--
<a href="http://furniture101.synthasite.com">&... src="http://furniture101.synthasite.com/re..." border="0"></a>
-->

Its going to work like this



Also - if you change the image in the file manager but keep the same name 'advert' it will change the advert on other sites - clever uh!
Lee.
