I just started building my website and have many questions on using the tools. What information should I look at, read or watch to get a general overview?

Hi Todd,

Welcome to SynthaSite, we're glad you joined us! We would like to give you all the information you need to help you build your site. We strive to make SynthaSite as easy to use as possible, and we are here to help you over the initial learning curve and support you when you need us.

Here are the initial steps after you log in:
1. Click on "Create New Site". You will be prompted to give your site a name.
2. Select a style. Your site will be given a default style, but you can
change it by clicking on the "change style" button in the tab at the top of your screen.
3. Drag and drop widgets from the side bar on the right of your page
and start editing them to add content such as text, images and videos.
4. If you want to make a new page click on "New Page" (the third button from the right above your page).
5. When you are happy with your site click "Publish" and you will be
taken through the steps to publish your site. Your site will be live as
soon as you publish it.
6.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
republish your site at the end of each session.

For detailed step-by-step instructions please check the tutorials, video tutorials and FAQs which you will find in our help menu under "Support" as well as on the support section of our website. Here is the link: SynthaSite Support.

My suggestion is that you start creating your site using our tutorials
and videos as a guide. Then, if you run into any particular problem,
you are welcome to email us and we will do our best to help you.

Regards,
Kershnee

Kershnee,
Thank you for getting back to me. I chose a style for my hompage template and was wondering if I could change the font of my business(title) in the banner section at the top. I like some of the templates but the writing style or font I would like to change. Also, could I add a photo or a logo at the top of the home page?

Hi Todd,

The font in the banner section of the styles (templates) is set and can't be changed, we are working on making some styles with a greater level of customisation though.

You can change the banner image in quite a few of our styles. You can tell if a banner image can be changed because there will be a white box in the banner that says "click here to change banner image"

Here is a list of the styles that have a customisable banner:

Essence
Redplanet
FrozenAge2
Center Stage
Atomohost
Evergreen
Bananaleaf
Begeodan
Dirtylicious
Economics
Emerald
Enlight
Entomology
Hyperglass
Logistix
Midnight
Numerology

Office

Pollinate

SnowCrystals

Spatter

Swanky

Tastelessly

Valentine

(we need to thank Kershnee for putting this together) :)

I hope this helps you.

Hi Jackson,

I'm sorry that you are feeling frustrated. To add text to your site you need to click on a text widget and drag it onto your page. Then click inside it and you will be able to start typing.

Have you read the tutorials that Kershnee gave you the links for? They explain the way things work very well and have screen shots which help make it even clearer.

We really do want to help you create your site.
