I want an honest opinion on the APPEARANCE of this site. I only have one set of lyrics available but please navigate from the home page all the way to the lyrics and tell me if it looks good. Click on the # sign to the left... click on 10 Years, click on The Autumn Effect... and then you're there... an honest opinion would be helpful and any ideas too... http://lyrics4you.synthasite.com

Your site is very clean, it's not filled up with irrelevant widgets that provide a distraction from your content. I like it.

yea... a lot. I want to use the same format, style, and make it look clean and simple. So instead of copying and pasting lyrics, I was going to type each one up... But I can type nearly 60 WPM so it shouldn't be too hard. I was going to use multiple sources too bc some sites will not include lyrics other sites do. If I know of any song not listed, I'll listen to the song and write them down myself, plus add a "submit lyrics" option for the users. I'll have a section for artist biographies too.

It`s a nice site! I like its simplicity. But maybe you could add a nice header (banner) to make it more unique. You can add a nice favicon as well. To just spice up the homepage add a pic (e.g. music notes, pen on paper, stuff like that) It`s the little things that make a big difference!

Good luck with adding all the content!

You've got a pretty good looking site. What template did you use? And did you change the background? I still can't figure out how to change the background, I see it done all the time. I am personally amazed at honeybearplayhomes' website, but I think they are temporarily down.

I didn`t change my background and to be honest, I don`t know how. Luckily Yola`s support is great so just search it here on the forums!

yea... what's the best way to get a favicon onto your computer to upload it to the site? Should I pick clip art from MS Word? I tried changing the banner... to get something music related in the banner was not an easy task, I gave up trying after 5 hours of frusteration. All the banner generator websites I went to last night didn't have anything music related except for one and it had a problem generating the banner for me. Any ideas?

Hey Donald,

Check out this link http://testingsite2.synthasite.com I made a small example of a favicon that you could use. It's .ico (favicon file type makes it compatiable with most browsers) so I could'nt upload it here.

You can make your own banner on Photoshop.

Just to get something straight... a favicon is placed on your title bar or internet explorer/mozilla tab correct? It's not actually on the website itself correct? Another thing... if you change your banner... do you have to change it for each page or will it work for all pages?

You`re right with the favicon! But is also shows next to you address if your site is bookmarked.

And yes, you have to add the banner to every page, one by one. It sucks, I know!

A quick trick to make this easy is to create your page with banners, favicons etc. Then use the save as feature for adding it as every page simply changing the page name when you "save as". This stops you having to create the page for every page.!
