Hi Shaq

Thanks for starting this thread. I think it depends on the purpose of my page and what the content on the page is.

Having said that the one I have used quite a lot is the 1-over-3 layout. I find it a really useful way to divide up content, with the main information on top and subsections below.

I would also be very interested to hear which layouts people are using and what they are using them for!

Come on, guys. Do tell!

The site I am referring to is password protected. Maybe I should ask our art department to create a featured site showing the uses of the different layouts. They are working to a very tough deadline at the moment, but it would be a nice idea for the future.

Hi Monique.
I am currently creating a site and i have nearly used every single layout so far. Instead of your Art Department doing it, If you want i can send you the URL of the site.

I am comfortable with layout of 2. Because the entire pages of my site except homepage contain mostly of text and images so i need a wider space.

I find myself using column box's because the layout options are not strict sized, the fact they increase and decrease im sure makes it very easy to edit for some users but on the other hand it can be hard to work with.
For example the 2-column-left option, the right column is too wide for a google skyscrapper advert so i found i had to force the left column to be wider.

An ultimate situation would be, when you choose the layout (maybe in advanced options) you could choose the width of each column and set it to strict sized or expanding.

If you had the exact width values you could also, more easily, recreate the same thing on a similar page. (this also applies for normal 2 column boxs)

Just my opinion, please don't hate me for it. I love synthasite too.

Hi Shaq,
Well, I have to say that I am not sure which layout is my favorite as I tend to keep it to a single column and use the two column widget to arrange my page content the way I would like (I love the two column widget!!).

Maybe you are wondering about Styles as well. I really love the new Burlap style! This style has so many variables that can be changed, has a wide body area, and a lot of room on the horizontal navigation as the font is smaller.

This is my website that I have built with Synthasite using the Burlap style. As you can see it is a style that allows for a lot of customization. E-LearnAbout.com.

Great thread, it's really fun to hear about what people favor!

Hi Liam,

Here is a link to more information on the attributes of the different styles: SynthaSite Style Feature Filter - http://spreadsheets.google.com/pub?ke...

I hope you can find a style that meets your needs.
