Using Synthasite I was able to create two websites that I am quite satisfied with. They are now my official business sites about Procurement in China and Einkauf China (German version).
We provide sourcing and outsourcing services in China, quality inspections and conflict management with Chinese suppliers.

Hello all...if you can, please check out: http://www.KayJayPromotion.com and let me know what you think. Clouda9...if you look at this, please let me know if that html you were seeing on the home page is now gone. I have been very busy revamping my site and any all feed back is greatly appreciated by anyone and everyone!

Also, does anyone know if the font on the heading can be changed? I have tried everything and nothing works. Maybe it is not an option.

hi karen, the link doesn't work for me, i tried it a couple of times. check for misspellings (although i don't see any), or maybe check with your domain control panel to see if it is pointed to your site.

hi karen, it works now, great site!

and i think what clouda9 was talking about is still there.

go to your site and notice all the way to the top of the screen there is an object code (it also appears in the tab title)

my guess is that you were trying to make a favicon since the code seems to be for an image

i'm guessing that you either put the code in the "window title" section under "page properties" or you put the code in between title tags in an html widget.

if you find which one it is and remove the code it should solve the problem. anything you put in the "window title" under "page properties" (the right vertical navbar) will show up at the top of the screen as your window title

just ask if you need help

hi karen, the favicon box was not the problem, in fact you used to have a favicon on your site, and now it is not there anymore

under "properties" you need to look at the "window title" box. if there is a code in that box, then removing it should solve the problem

if this doesn't solve the problem, then maybe whoever answers your ticket will be able to help

tell me how it works out

gamedemon - There was a code in the "window title" box and I have removed this. Since I was not seeing this at my end, can you check to make sure this took care of the problem? If not, I will send a help ticket...got to busy last night to send this.

actually i do see it.

did you forget to republish your site?

did you press "save" after you removed the code?

go back to "properties" and if you still see the code in the "window title" box then it wasn't saved properly.

remove the code again, click "save" within "properties" (scroll down), and then republish your site.

if the code isn't there, then just republish your site

if none of that works, then i guess you are going to have to send a support ticket

good luck, tell me how it works out

very nice, happy i was able to help

and just in case you want to put a favicon, but don't know how to do it, you can put a favicon on your site by:

- going to "properties"
- under "favicon" you should see a button
- click the button and browse trough your file for an image
- upload the image
- press save and republish

have a great day

It feels like something is missing on my site - i think it is a true index page but I was not sure of how to create one. I wanted to create one that visitors could leave their name's and email addresses on - can someone help me out? Also how do you get spaces between widget boxes (ads at bottom of pages are too close together. My website is www.stayfocusedonline.com.

Sorry I did not know how to make my site address a link but you can copy and paste it in your browser. Any feedback would be helpful!!

Thanks,
Connie

Hi New2me,

Most people are wary of leaving their names and email addresses publically on a site. I would recommend adding one of our form widgets to your page. You'll find them in the sidebar on the right in the folder marked "Forms". Wufoo is probably the easiest to use. They have free and paid options, so you can select the option that is best for you.

People can fill in the form, it is emailed to your Wufoo or Form Assembly account and you can check the details from there.

You could password protect the pages that you don't want people to see without registering, then once they have filled in the form you can send them the username and login. I know this is a little clunky, but it's the best I can think of at the moment.

Part ll of above question from New2me - once a person leaves their name and email address the page would automatically redirect them to the information I have to over - I do not know how to redirect a page. Even if I don't use it on this website I may use it on another one so can someone help me out with this redirection also.

Connie - I checked your site out and I think you did a pretty good darn job! Your index page - home page - is really good. To get spaces between the widget boxes I just inserted a text box, clicked to delete type message here and added space as needed. I don't know of any other way when you can not add space by hitting "enter". Someone else may know. But again, I think you did a great job! (I will bookmark your site! I am trying to make a littel extra working at home myself!)
