Alignment of page heading

In prior versions of the sitebuilder, the page heading in some styles could be aligned (left, right, center). I can't find that function in the new sitebuilder. Can someone point me in the right direction?
Thanks!

Hello Rose Marie,

What package type do you have with Yola? Are you able to edit CSS?
By page heading do you mean the text in the banner or the heading above the text on the page?
One last question, which template are you using?
Thanks.

Hello rose marie,

The function is still available but the overall navigation has been reformed with the update of the builder.

To navigate there: Page > Page Properties > Heading. You will see the relevant control features.

Hi Gop and Crystal
Gop - the page>page properties>heading under the new sitebuilder does not access the prior menu of modifying the page heading.
Crystal, I am working with free styles, many of the style previously had the option to align the page heading.
I am going to try to insert an image to see if anyone recognizes this feature, and knows if the page heading alignement can still be accessed. The placement of the page heading varies according to style - some above the banner, some in the banner, some at the top of the page if there is no banner.

Hi Yola - please do not mark this answered - there is still a problem.
Gop, thanks again for your follow up. No, I do not see what you have posted. Is there a difference been paid and free accounts I wonder? Any other thoughts?
The following is what I see in both IE and Chrome:

I wonder if there are a couple of versions of the new sitebuilder also. On the above image it mentions using the Style Designer to change this. Have you tried that?

I'm most definitely not seeing this.

I checked my paid site, and it worked in both the style and page menu. I had a friend check their free style and it also worked for them, so their are either several versions of the sitebuilder still being used, or their is a bug in my free version - I used both menus (style - style settings and page - page properties) and multiple browsers and the problem persists.
The style designer menu does not include an alignment option.

Can someone from Yola clarify why some sites are seeing one version for editing the page heading, and other sites are seeing a different version - please see the images posted by Gop and the one I published above? Thanks.

Hi rm,

The dreaded suggestion... can you try clearing your cache? (I'm wincing and running as I ask this)

Just a quick follow up - my friend created a free site to test this, and came up with the same results I have on my free site. They also published their free site to make sure the problem didn't relate to the publishing process.
Yola, is there a time frame for when the sitebuilder process will be uniform?

Thanks for the suggestion to clear the cache, it's always a good reminder, and that has worked for me in the past, so I now do that regularly and just did it again, and still the same results, so it has to be different versions of the sitebuilder, I'll wait for Yola to let us know when there will be a uniform version of the sitebuilder:

Your testing is excellent and as soon as I saw your previous post I realised the cache thing was irrelevant. Think you are on the right track with the version interpretation so that should bring an affirmative answer.

Tried Firefox with the same results, so hopefully someone from Yola will respond at some point:

Hi rose marie,

I saw another response on another topic by Monique and she mentioned that they have a large backlog of queries accumulated over the long weekend. I know that this puts them into top gear so their response really will be as fast as they can move through the list.

I'm looking forward to the answer/solution on this and sorry i couldn't help.

Hi rose marie,

Sorry for our delayed reply. I wanted to check in with our Product team prior to replying to make sure I was giving you accurate information.

When we launched the Style Designer we enabled it for new websites created but did not activate it for legacy websites in order to ensure we didn't override any custom edits on published websites. That is why you and Gop are seeing different editing tools. This is by design and not an error.

The link that sugests you try the Style Designer will reveal the tools that are available to you in order to edit your heading and it does not currently include alignment. You can learn more about the features it does include in this tutorial. In the meantime, editing your CSS is the only way to change the alignment of your header for websites that have the Style Designer enabled but our product team is discussing the best place to add a heading alignment feature for Style Designer users. Moving it into the Stlye Designer would automatically apply it to all pages but if we add it back to the edit header pop up window you would still have the ability to choose whether or not to apply that change at a page level. We're leaning towards the latter and will update you here when we have finalized the decision and implemented it.

Hi Laura, thanks for your response. However I don't understand since the function does not work for a new free site I just created, but does work for my paid site which I have had for several years. Your message says it is enabled for new sites created, but that clearly is not the case. Is there some way to disable the style designer so people can access the functions that they need to use?
Thanks

That is correct, Style Designer is on new sites and not on legacy sites which is why you do have the header pop up window in your old site and not the new one. Even if you create a new site within your paid account you'll see the Style Designer option there. The Style Designer cannot be disabled. As I explained above, we are considering how best to allow header text alignment for websites with Style Designer enabled, but in the meantime CSS is the only way to change it for websites with Style Designer.

Please return it to the edit header pop it. It is a very valuable tool!

Sorry Laura,

I cannot understand what you are trying to say. Legacy sites?

I understand legacy and I understand sites but have no idea what "legacy sites" are?

Sorry for the jargon Gop. I was just trying to explain that websites created prior to the launch of the Style Designer do have the Header pop up window editor but do not have the Style Designer. Alternately websites created after the launch do have the Style Designer but do not have the Header pop up window editor. I hope this makes more sense.

I have a site created before the launch of the Style Designer. It certainly has the Header pop-up and it has the Style Designer, plus a paid for hosting subscription published to a yolasite sub-domain ??

That's a legacy site - it has the full function both the style designer and the full H1 function. The best of both worlds, hopefully coming soon to new websites as well as the legacy sites.

I think she means sites that were made before the change went into effect. I was concerned that there was a difference between paid and free sites, she is saying that on our paid accounts, if we create a new site, we will no longer have the page heading alignment option that you displayed, but rather the option will be limited to the page heading editing option I displayed.
I haven't tested this yet, but Yola frequently keeps features available for users available after a change is made.

Thanks rm,

That to my way of thinking is strange because I would rather have existing sites protected rather than new sites I'm creating because I can see the limitations as I go and can accommodate those. Older sites on the other hand I really don't want interfered with if possible as I have lost custom functional aspects previously because of un-announced policy and function modifications by Yola and that really does cause problems.

Still not sure of the definition of "legacy sites". Maybe I need a Yola glossary??

I'm afraid I explained it poorly. Existing sites (legacy sites) still have the full function, sites created after the change in the sitebuilder no longer have the function to edit the page heading with the pop up box allowing for alignment, font change, etc, and it appears that if the changes are made with the style designer, they automatically apply to each page of your site.
