Some ideas for improvement

Here are a few suggestions that I would love to see take effect in making Synthasite an even better place!

1. Integrated photo gallery
2. Ability to add images from external servers (e.g. photobucket) easily. Many places I noticed have like a little bar that allows you to type in the url for the image and retrieves it very easily. Also, would like the option to add borders to an image
3. Integrated guestbook
4. Redesign the ability to choose templates - instead of scrolling along to pick your template, have a drop down menu which has all the names of the templates and preview of them
5. Along the same lines, redesign the edit posts section so that once again, you don't have to scroll along to get to the post you want to edit, but rather have it in a list format instead.

I know that we can always add widgets, etc.. to help accomodate all this but it is a bit time consuming and frustrating to always have to work with external sources.

I know you guys are doing an awesome job and will continue to improve. I thank you for listening to my comments.

Hi littleus

Fantastic ideas! Thank you for your thoughtful and worthwhile feedback.

1,2) We have plans for these.
3) Most people seem to like the guestbook widgets available. This doesn't mean that we would not consider doing an integrated guestbook, but so far it hasn't risen to the top of our long to do list! Thank you for letting us know that this is important to you - we will definitely take this into consideration.
4) Easier way to navigate the templates/styles - definitely on our list, especially as the style library is going to get a lot bigger! I will pass your suggestion on as one possible solution to a growing problem.
5) If you click on the "blog manager" you see a full list of all your blogposts and you can click on the one you want to edit. Is there another place you would expect to find a list of your posts? If so, let us know and we can look into it.

If you have any other thoughts/ ideas, please post them! We love to hear what our customers want and you might just find your suggestion turning into a feature one of these days!

Let me clarify for the post thingy. The blog manager is definitely the right place to edit the posts, but it is the method of how to select the post you want to edit. When I go to edit my posts, I do go into the blog manager, but the posts are not listed in a list style (like you would find in a drop-down menu) but instead, (like the templates), you have to scroll along by hitting the forward or backward arrow, until you find the post you want to edit. I'd rather it be a vertical arrangement vs a horizontal arrangement. Am I making any sense? Thanks for listening once again!
