Hi lr,

Right now you need to now you need to select your style from our style library. We are working on adding more and better styles/templates with more customization options. Currently you can change the banner image, colour palette and background image 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.

You may be interested in this post: http://getsatisfaction.com/SynthaSite.... It has a link to a document that has a handy filter function for you to see which style you might like! You can also check out this site http://forsite.synthasite.com/website..., where one of our SynthaSiter's has added a page to his site comparing styles.

Here's a fun example of a site I helped to create for a friend using one of our new "blank" styles!

Yes creating the different site are fun. These are some I've been playing with. No if I do something with the content we'd be in good shape.

Several of your featured websites contain the notice: "Design by Free CSS Templates" including http://www.thewardrobestudio.co.za/ , http://forsite.synthasite.com/ and most notably, your Best of Synthasite winner: http://www.forty-something.com/

Needless to say, I am very confused because you say you cannot use templates other than the official Synthasite selection of templates.

Are these examples I listed here based on one of the Synthasite templates?? If so, which one??

Also, where are the "new blank" templates mention by your team member Diane in the post above found??

Thanks for you help clearing up my confusion.

This is a great question. Thanks for asking it! All three of those sites use the same template, but they have customized it by adding their own banner image. The template they are using is called "RedPlanet". This template as well as the 4 blank ones Diane refers to are all found on the first page of our style library. You can see the name of the style under the thumbnail preview of that style.

This page on the one of the featured sites actually gives alot of great information about our templates: http://forsite.synthasite.com/website...

If you need any further information for your site, let us know.

One more thing. You might find this tutorial helpful: http://www.synthasite.com/tutorials/c...

Our art director wrote it and gives some great design tips. She built an example site to accompany the tutorial and she also used RedPlanet, so you can see how she went about customizing that style.
