You can add a guest book to your site for your visitors to sign. Here's how:
1. Drag and drop a Widgetbox Gallery widget onto your page
2. A dialogue box will open, search for 'guest book' to see all the widgets available
3. Choose the widget you would like to use on your site
4. Click on the Settings button (looks like a tool) on the left to edit your settings
5. Click on the green 'Get Widget' button and it will be saved and added to your page
6. Save and preview your page to view the widget.

Alternatively, you can add a guest book to your site by adding a specific widget to your site (like Google Gadgets, Widgetbox, Spring widgets etc) this is how:
1. Add a Widgetbox widget to your site (you'll find it in the widget folder at the right of your screen)
2. A dialogue box will open up. Click on the link which will take you to Widgetbox (the blue writing in the bottom right hand corner)
3. In the Widgetbox website search box (a blue box that says 'get your widget') search for guest book. You will be given a list of guest books
4. Choose a guest book and make any modifications to it if you can/want. Then click on "Get Widget"
5. Copy the code provided and paste it into the dialogue box back in SynthaSite
6. Click on "ok" and you will have a guest book for your site.

Slide also offers very nice guestbooks, and you can also find them in the "widgets" folder in SynthaSite.

Let me know if this is what you had in mind.

Hi floss,

Could you post your URL so that I can take a look at the message box that has this problem?

I can also suggest that you try out a box at These are the steps to adding it to your site.
1) Go to and register for free.
2) You can then copy the code from the 'get the code' text area
3) Go to SynthaSite and drag and drop an HTML widget onto your page and paste your code into the HTML editor
4) You should then have a new box!
5) To administer the box (delete messages/block users etc.), simply log into click on the 'Admin' tab and then the 'messages' menu item on the left.

Hope that helps.
