A couple of suggestions

Hi,

I am new to yola, but have already started loving it! Especially the "upload zip and then unzip" feature.

I have two suggestions to improve yola:
1. It would be nice if we can keep the php files in separate folders each with its own "resources" subfolder.
2. At present "uploading" a html file takes too many steps: first we have to drag the html widget, then copy and paste the file contents, then click OK, then save, and then click on publish settings, and then click on republish. It would help if you please provide a shortcut button like "save & publish" right inside the html widget (which now shows only "OK" and "Cancel").

Thanks a lot.

Arnab.

Save and Publish inside the widgets is a freakin great idea... But how about "Save and preview" as that could be better than having an update that looks bad being stuck on your published site.

Keep up the good ideas...

Happy site building

Thanks about the really prompt response. Yes, "Save and preview" would be great, but cannot substitute "Save and publish". I guess there are many people like myself who automate creation of their pages. For example, I would test out the look and feel of a published "test page" first, create suitable tools to replicate the look and feel, and then churn out pages by the dozen. Naturally I would not care to preview each of these. I just KNOW how they are going to look, because they are already tested in my machine. Even a single extra click per page would be rather time consuming when the number of pages is large.

Also, as I had mentioned, I would love to be able to modularise my php's into folders.
