I really dont have any ideea about building a website, so I thought your system might help me understand, but I can't seem to many of your functions to work. For example:
on the first page where it says "click here to change this banner" i click and nothing happens, is there something else I need to be doing?
I am following your tutorial and playing with text, and that worked out ok, but I dont know how to get out and remove the box. Then I trying to add an image, your default image showed up in the box (with that owl) and I try to click on it like it says to change it and it doesn't work, I clicked and double clicked on "edit" and nothing happens. It's very frustrating, please help.
Thank you.

Hi Curnegru,

I'm sorry you are having difficulty. Here are the steps for changing the banner image:
1) Click on the white instruction box that says "click here to change banner image"
2) The file manager will open up that will allow you to browse your computer for a picture to upload.
3) When you are done, click "ok" and your own image will replace the default image
4) If the dimensions are not quite right you can fix this by choosing the "edit with Picnik" option in the file manager. Picnik is a web-based image manipulation tool that has an option for you to resize your image. When you are done, click "save to SynthaSite" and the new image will replace the old one.

Please note that the white instruction box will only appear in editing mode, and will disappear when you preview or publish your site. Also, you may use the default banner image if you wish.

To add images to your page you can either:
1. Drag and drop an image widget
2. The file manager dialogue box will pop up
3. Upload a picture from your computer
4. Press ok and an image will be added to your page!
1. Drag and drop a text widget onto your page
2. Click "insert image" on the text editing toolbar (the icon that looks like a green tree in a picture frame, roughly in the middle of the toolbar)
3. The file manager will open up and allow you to browse for a select an image
Using the text widget allows you to insert a number of image in the same text box.

I hope this information is helpful to you. If you have any further questions, please let us know.
