SynthaSite is awesome but not yet fully formed. Thought it would be nice to share some of the ideas that could improve on the great host it already is.

One thing all are most likely aware of is the need for more versatility in templates. Another very positive addition would be adding "content box" properties control to the page designer; being able to set a background color or image over (on top of) the page template or (hopefully someday) properties. Often this can provide more aesthetic range but is useful with some transparent widgets as well.

Another very powerful tool I have yet to see anywhere would be a "link manager" page patterned after a flow chart that would allow for easy graphic manipulation of links, especially from page to page.

Yeah...
Like we need an account feature so people can Sign Up, and log in & log out.
And, we need a new video site for one of the video things we can post...

Keep the suggestions coming folks! We take note of all of them!

(Spare us a thought though - these things take time and careful planning to implement successfully!)

Monique, no complaints here. Give me more time before I get grumpy, lol. You guys have far more than many who charge! I think you are doing great, and I know not every want can be a given. You need to do what is best for the most; not fulfill every dream. Overall, SynthaSite has so much going for it - not the least of which are employees who really want to please.

Thanks for the note of appreciation. I hope this "wishlist" thread grows. That way the SynthaSite community together with the SynthaSite developers can see what the requests are and how popular each one is. Our aim is to grow with you until we truly are the best free website builder on the internet!

Honestly, I have searched all over the web and it was a toss-up between Synthasite and Weebly. I tried both and Synthasite obviously won. So, with the constant new additions and the great customer service, I consider Synthasite to already be the best on the web :)

As for new features....

maybe a 3 column, grunge-looking clothing template? :p
And yes, I agree with 1331 in the area of being able to customize the background.

well i have a simple suggestion and i am aware that the space is limited but i would really appreciate a larger upload size. 5mb wont cut it for the things i will need it for so i have to resort to email instead.
I know there isnt much that can be done about this but i would like to see it happen sometime
Thanks for the experiences and great support!!!

We are looking into this. We need to investigate what impact increasing the file limit would have on our infrastructure, but is there is a way to allow bigger files we would like to try to make it happen.

A great inprovement that would be great for synthasite is layers so our websites can be more flexable,some blank page option and uploadable optioons would be great too.

Thank you for your suggestions. We are working on adding more and better styles/templates with more customization options. Currently you can change the banner image and colour palette on some of our styles. We want to make more options available like this, and one of our future plans is to allow you to develop your own CSS style if this is something that interests you. However, this functionality is going to take significant engineering on our part, so it is still a little ways into the future. In the meantime I hope you can find a style to suit your needs.
