Alterations?

  • Updated 8 years ago
I run a website that I maintain with the use of Yola's online designer, but there are many things I would like to add and alter, and I think if I'm to do that, I need someone who works at Yola to help me do that.

I've been made some pictures I'd like to use as buttons for the main page, unfortunately, the Yola designer doesn't allow me to use these images, because they won't let anyone remove the current simple text navigation buttons at the top of the page. Can this be edited so that I may use the buttons I made? Also, the current template or column I have is great, but rather than the design that makes it appear as though a piece of paper was torn, can it look like dripping blood? I run a horror film review site, so I'd like it to look threatening, and reflect the genre. Is there a way to change the transparency of the column? Can I add a background image, but have more say in where it is placed and what size it is? I also would like to know if there's a way my pages can end in .html rather than .php, and I would like to know why, when I put a Facebook "like" button on a page, and then "like" it, to test the buttons functionality, why it appears like: Avery likes "http://www.celluloidhell.com/bizarre-..." on celluloidhell.com. When I'd like it to say: Avery likes: "Bizarre cover scan of the day 2-17-11" on celluloidhell.com. Is that possible to edit/fix? When I link to a page, the text linked turns blue, can I make it a different color? Is there any way, I and a Yola designer, perhaps yourself, assuming you are able to do all this, help me in making these alterations to my site? I've made too much progress and have paid money to use it, so I don't want to move to another website designer service and start all over again, I'd just like to make some changes that I cannot immediately make. There are other alterations I'd like to make, let me know if we can do any of them! Thanks!

Hi Avery,

I have responded to the email you sent to support@yola.com, with some suggestions that I think will enable you to get your site looking exactly the way you want it. Please let me know if you did not receive my response, so I can re-send it.

Hi Justine, I received your response, but it wasn't one that helped any. Is there any way at all I can accomplish any of the things I listed above?

Hi Avery,
Since I am unsure of the suggestions Justine offered you via email, I am going to refer this message to her. She will respond as soon as she arrives back online.
Cheers!

Hi, Avery,

If you don't mind me stepping in, I'd like to help you with your goals for your website. Since there is a lot to do and it would make for a very long post, I am going to respond to your email. This will take a bit of time to compose so please bear with me.

For the fb like button, rename your app/page name to what you want to appear (such as the name of your? film).

I'm not sure whether this works, but I think creating your own menu with those images could solve the problem. As far as I know, yola has no php support. So you can't use Include function to add menu to every page. So make the entire menu in one page,(in a HTML widget) , and copy it to all pages.
