I am very new to website creation. Now we have a product that needs to be told about to many people through the web. I am a pastor and I have to tell others about my ministry.
The product that we have is a significant one and needs good exposure. The product is THE
THOMPSON CHAIN-REFERENCE STUDY BIBLE IN MARATHI LANGUAGE. Marathi is one of the vernacular Indian languages. We desire to communicate this information to the Church
at large. My website is : goodnewsindia@synthasite.com

Hi Arvind

Welcome to SynthaSite. We are glad you decided to use our service to build your site. The majority of our users are new to website creation, so you are in good company!

Have you published your site yet? I was not able to find it. If the site were published the domain name would be goodnewsindia.synthasite.com (the "@" sign is used in email addresses, but not domain names)

It sounds like you have a clear focus for your site, which is always a good place to start. Have you thought about what content and features you would like on your site? Let me know and I will try to give you some suggestions.

Also note that we have a number of tutorials in our Help menu under "support" and on the Support section of our website. These tutorials cover all the basics, so they should help to get you started.

I suggest that you simply jump in and start building your site. Then if you have a problem with a specific task, post a question here and someone will answer you right away!

Best wishes
Monique

Hi Tarif,

Here are some instructions that may help you to get started:

After you log in to your account:

1. You will be taken to a page that will allow you choose a design for your site, you can choose a basic (or free) style, or you can select from our premium styles to give your website that extra edge. To select a style hover over it with your mouse and then click on the "Select Style" button.
2. This will take you to a preview of the style, so that you can see what your style will look like. There is a box towards the top of the page that says "Site Name". Fill this in with the name you wish. At this point you will also be asked to choose whether you want a webpage or a blog page. If you aren't sure choose a webpage to start with, it's easy to add a blog page later.
3. Once you have done this click on the "Continue" button. You can now chose to select a website address immediately (click on the "Get a Web Address" button if you wish to do this), this will take you to a page where you can publish your site. You can choose to buy a .com domain from Yola, or publish your site to a free .yolasite.com subdomain name. Follow the steps to publish your site. If you don't wish to select a website address just yet, you can click on the button that says "Skip and start building" and you will be taken to a page where you can build your site.
4. Once you have either chosen a website address or chosen to go direct to building your site you will be taken to a page where you can start building. In the "Content" sidebar at the right of your screen, there are widgets. Widgets allow you to add things such as text (writing) and pictures onto your webpage. You add these to your page by clicking on them with your mouse and then, holding the button of your mouse down, dragging them across the screen. If you are doing it properly a grey image of the widget will move across the page. When the widget is over the page let go of your mouse button. You will then be able to start editing the widgets to add content such as text, images and videos. What is a Widget?.
5. If you want to make a new page click on "New Page" (the third button from the right above your page), you will be asked to give the new page a name, then you can add content to it using the widgets.
6. When you are happy with your site click "Publish" if you have not already done so and you will be taken through the steps to publish your site. Your site will be live as soon as you publish it. If you selected your web address when you created your site, simply click the yellow "Update My Site" button.
7. If you want to make changes to your site after you have published it, it's very easy to do, just log in to your account and open your site. You will be able to make all the changes you want. Don't forget to update (repubish) your site at the end of each session.
