Hello Leslie,
Unfortunately, it is not possible to import a blog from another website. Here are 3 alternatives that may work for you.

1. Create a link to your external blog

For information on how to create a text link, please see this tutorial: Text Links.

2. Make your navigation link redirect to an external URL.

You can find steps on how to do this here: Links that redirect from the menu tab.

3. Use an iframe code to embed your blog into your site.

Using the HTML Widget, paste in the following code:
<!--
<iframe src="http://yourblogpageurl.com" width="600px" height="1200px"></iframe>
-->

Leave out the <! -- and -- >

* Replace "yourblogpageurl.com" with your blog page URL.
* You can change the width and height of your iframe.

I hope you can make use of one of the options above. Please let me know if you need any further assistance.

Kind Regards,
Emmy

Hey Leslie Iframes work really well with Yola - My site uses an iframe to connect to our software provider see http://courierquotes.com.au our iframe is on our home page. Having the iframe lets you use all the great yola features around your actual product.

Hi Moises,

I see that you have sent an email stating the following:
most of the webhosting have a cpanel where once you login as the owner of the site you can install wordpress.most of us use wordpress in building sites because we can install plugins which can automate evrything from adding content,posting,etc. Yola don't have a cpanel or fantastico? Is there a way to install wordpress with yola hosting?the topic on Adding wordpress is a redirect link option.Installing wordpress ...once wordpress was installed using yola webhosting,wordpress will be the one to be use in maintaining the website we purchase from yola..thanks


Unfotunately, as stated above, it is not possible to import your Wordpress into Yola. You do need to make use of the workarounds offered. I wish I had better news for you.

The iframe works really well, if you choose the simplest wordpress theme and remove the blog heading, all menus and all pages you can have it blend almost seamlessly with your site.

I managed to get mine looking almost as if its part of the site http://www.365-bodies.com/my-blog.php - really wish yolk would have a better blog widget than the current one then we wouldn't have to do this :(
