Hi Karl

Right now we are busy with some other major improvements to SynthaSite, but we certainly intend to add to our template library as well! I can't make any definite promises at this stage, other than to tell you that we are aware of the need to grow our selection of templates and this is something we want to work on.

Best wishes
Monique

Can I customize an existing template? Change the colors images etc? What if I download it and change it can I import it back?

Hi smartsites

Unfortunately it is not possible to customize templates/styles in the way that you describe. Some of styles have greater flexibility in that they allow you to select different colour palettes or upload your own banner image.

In the coming months we plan to work on adding more and better styles with more customization options.

ok. you are going to need that ability. If I can't integrate my clients colors or logo then it's pretty useless to me. However I like your tools very much and hopefully you will come out with this ability soon.

Although there are significant improvements to look forward to with regard to our styles, many of our users have had great success customizing existing styles with logos and colour schemes to match their unique design. Take a look at the featured sites on the SynthaSite homepage: www.synthasite.com. Each of these web masters have managed to customize the look and feel of their sites to a greater or lesser degree. There are also some excellent design tips in this tutorial authored by our art director: http://www.synthasite.com/tutorials/c....

I hope this gives you some inspiration for building websites with our current feature set, while we work tirelessly to turn SynthaSite into everything you could hope for in a site builder!

they are probably working on it, although using a picture as a banner
makes it look like a whole different template for example my website is http://www.lauramay.synthasite.com

Good job! Your banner goes really well with that template and personalizes the look of your site very nicely. The inside scoop: keep an eye out for some exciting developments in the area of styles/templates in 2-3 months. It has been a long wait, and there is still a bit of waiting to do, but when it comes it is going to be totally worth it!
