Hi Mel

Welcome to SynthaSite and to this forum.

I have searched a few widget libraries and couldn't find anything that was an obvious choice for this.

My best suggestion would be to create your own box or button with the text you want and save it as an image.

You can then use the file manager (in the Site Explorer tab) to upload your image.
Add it to your page by dragging and dropping an image widget onto your page.
Turn your graphic into a clickable button or box, by using the "Choose a Link" option in the properties sidebar.

I hope this information makes sense to you. If not, please get back to me.

If anyone knows of a nice widget to help Mel out, please recommend it!

Thanks
Monique

Hi Mel

What program are you using to create your graphic?

I should mention that if you are just using plain text, which seems to be the case from your description, there is an easier approach:

1) In SynthaSite, in a text widget type "Click Here to Enter".
2) Make the font size and style whatever you wish by using the text editing toolbar.
3) Highlight this text and click on "insert link" (roughly in the middle of the text editing toolbar, between "font highlight" and "insert image.") A link editor will open up that will allow you to link to a page of your site or an external URL.

Does this sound like it might work for what you are trying to achieve?

I think I need to try this too. I am trying to get them to click on my blog site from a page I created called blog. But it is not clear where they should click in order to get to the blog. I will keep tweaking and checking back. Eventually someone asks the very question I was thinking about!
