    Participle clause

    I was wondering whether we can use participle clause with a PRESENT participle as a conditional clause???

    ex) checking the website, you will find all the information needed.

    Thank you very much,

    Welcome to the forum.

    It sounds OK, but it would sound much better with "By" at the beginning. I would also end it "all the information you need" or "all necessary information".

    Note that a single punctuation mark suffices.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
