Hi Alice,

Can you tell me what changes you would like to make to the SynthaSite template? That way I'll be able to give you the best directions to meet your needs. If you would like to change the entire template (or style) then you can click on the "Change Style" button.

To add additional items to your menu:

1) Click on "New Page" - the third icon from the left above the SynthaSite tabs
2) A dialogue box will open up that will prompt you to give your page a name
3) When you click "ok" a new page will be created and a link will automatically be added to your menu.

Please let me know if I have misunderstood your question.

I like to move the menu tab to the right in vertical.

I also like to change the banner.

The menu position is set by the style you choose; you may want to look for a style with a vertical navigation.

SynthaSite offers a selection of styles that allow you to change the banner image. If the banner image can be changed, you will see a white box with an instruction placed over the default banner image.

To change the banner image:
1. Click on the white instruction box that says "click here to change banner image"
2. The file manager will open up that will allow you to browse your computer for a picture to upload
3. When you are done, click "ok" and your own image will replace the default image
4. If the dimensions are not quite right you can fix this by choosing the "edit with Picnik" option in the file manager. Picnik is a web-based image manipulation tool that has an option for you to resize your image. When you are done, click "save to SynthaSite" and the new image will replace the old one.

Please note that the white instruction box will only appear in editing mode, and will disappear when you preview or publish your site. Also, you may use the default banner image if you wish.

Here is a link to more information on the attributes of the different styles: SynthaSite Style Guide.
