Hi Valentino,

You can definitely add a guestbook, here are your various options:

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 to use:
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

If you would like to use a free guest book, please visit www.smartgb.com or Google for 'free guest book'. Customise the guest book, copy the HTML code provided and paste it into an HTML widget that you've added to your page.

Hope that helps!

I use the one from smartgb.com. Nothing fancy, but serves the purpose
