Hi Lycan76

I am sorry that no one has answered your question yet. Have you published your site yet? If so, please post the URL (web address) so that we can take a look at your page and the problem with your menu. If this is something we can help with we will do our best.

Hi Lycan76

Thanks for posting the link to your site! You are doing an amazing job, especially since this is your first website. I don't have the answer to your original question. Maybe Ed can help with that. But once I was able to tear my eyes away from the cute bulldogs I did notice another problem.

The buttons in your menu are taking me to your preview URL's. This is the long URL you see when you preview your page from the SynthaSite site builder. However, only you should have access to this URL - you should not link to your preview URL's anywhere on your site, as this will cause problems with the search engines (they will not be able to index these pages)

The URL you need to use is the page URL once your site is published. You can get this by using your base domain and then putting /filename.php of your page at the end. So for example the URL of your index page (homepage) would be www.ocaseybulldogs.synthasite.com/ind...

Any easy way to get the proper page URL's is:
1) Put all the pages in your menu using the "edit menu" button in SynthaSite.
2) Update your site and go to it.
3) Open each page and copy the URL from your browser window.

You will then have the correct URL's to add to the button code.

I hope this makes sense to you - I am sorry that it is a bit confusing. If you have any problems with this, please let me know.

Monique good catch with the preview page URL... I never would have thought to look up there. ;)

I am amazed at the overall looks of your site my friend. I think you have done a fantastic job at making it look professional and fun. I would however recommend that you change the images with text contained within them to a text box with the exact text typed then include a pic. As it is the web crawlers don't have any content on your site to read and you know how much they like content. If you wish to keep the images as is then I would maybe summarize the text contained in the images in a separate text widget below each pic.

Just a thought...

Any questions please feel free to ask

Lookin great and keep up the good work...
