Hey SynthaSite Developers!
I know you guys have been working hard with all the new things with synthasite. Well I thought if you ever ran out of ideas here are some. I found these on freewebs... They have more things then synthasite! THAT's BAD.... I like synthasite a lot but if you could include some of these functions that'd be great. http://newaccounts.freewebs.com/pages...
Some of them we have!
Well i hope you take this in consideration.

Hi All

Rjun... I see you have gone over the fence and looked at the neighbors grass so to speak... lol

I must say that yes of course freewebs has some features that are as of yet unavailable to us. But I give Synthasite so much credit for accomplishing in the short year and a half all that they have. Comparing apples to apples I would say that for me freewebs is like a granny smith apple needing much sugar to make it taste good as in a pie. (Forced ads soured the batch) Whereas Synthasite is like a ripening golden delicious. Strange analogy but as freewebs was founded in 2001 and Synthasite in March of 2007 I see that the accomplishments of our host has risen it to the high stakes table quickly and the others are finding out that Synthasite can hold its own in the card game. I see Synthasite surpassing all others in the free website builders on the web today. With each update Synthasite is rapidly closing that gap between those features you speak of. Would you agree?

I think that someone needs to update Wikipedia about all the added Pros that have been put into Synthasite lately ;)))

Just my two cents worth...

I have been away dealing with personal issues but hope to return to the forums full time again very soon. Odd that it took this thread to get me to say howdy and how are ya.

Happy site building
Ed

Hi Rjun

Thanks for the link. Can you tell us which ones from that list you would be most interested in? I know we would like to do all of them and more, but could you pick your top 3 from that page of features that SynthaSite doesn't have yet and post them here. Just interested in which features you rank as the most important.

IN FREEWEBS THIS IS A PRETTY INTERESTING FEATURE AND IT WILL BE GOOD IF THIS WERE ON SYNTHASITE TOO:

"Grow and Manage Your Community."


Members
Turn Your Site Into a Social Network.

Add the power of social networking to your site by turning your visitors into Site Members. Visitors “join” your site, create profiles and contribute to your community by posting comments, photos, videos, and more.
And if possible i suggest making it possible to create a site in which people can make their accounts, log in, send mails etc...

I think the top 3 would: (your right ed synthasite still rox our socks!)

1: Show and Share Video.Upload your videos to make your own video channel. You can also pull in videos from YouTube or anywhere on the Web. And our new feature: You have the power to allow your site members to add their videos to your galleries as well!

2: Send Email Blasts To Your Members.Keep your visitors coming back for more by adding them to your own mailing list. Ongoing email updates help you share the latest and greatest from you and your website. We do the list management so you don't have to.

3: Turn Your Site Into a Social Network.Add the power of social networking to your site by turning your visitors into Site Members. Visitors “join” your site, create profiles and contribute to your community by posting comments, photos, videos, and more.

These and maybe a forum are the key things we hope to see on synthasite. We know you work your tails off with the new updates. We appreciate it! Synthasite is still the best to all of us!

No - the features you are asking for will take a lot longer to develop. Keep sending feedback though - we do take note!

Hi, i just wanted to bring this up again. Seeing that it was posted 7 months ago i was wondering if Yola has decided to add any of these features.
Thanks,
Rjun

Hi Rjun

We have developed a number of new features since you posted last on this thread, and we have some more new ones coming very soon.

Can you tell us specifically which ones you re interested in and I will let you know if they are released, in development or not scheduled yet.
I guess it would be pretty nice if you could include the following:
Customizable Apache Web Server, Php (customizable .INI file), MySQL, Perl, Python, Ajax, CGI, Ruby/Ruby on Rails, Javascript/DHTML, PHPmySQL, Mambo, Jhoomla, POP3/POP3 Secure Email Accounts, IMAP/Secure IMAP Email Accounts, SMTP, FTP, SSL and Customizable Error Pages.

Instead of the SiteBuilder that you have it would be better if we could make the full site also and not only use widgets, themes etc. but make the full site and upload files by FTP too.

I know I'm asking a lot but if you developers could work slowly work towards some it'll be truly appreciated.

Hi Rjun,

Thanks for the suggestions. Have you seen Google Friend Connect? Perhaps that would meet some of your needs. Here is a link to more information: http://www.yola.com/tutorials/google-...

I do agree. I have been waiting for social networking tools.
And maybe things like PHP and MySQL.
