Hi, another question just came up when using the add page feature, the home page (index) I have added a banner image and background image do I have to add this to each new page as I create them or is it possible for this to be done automatically as I add the page? all I can see as an option is name and heading, Thanks.

Hello myinvite4lockerz

Here are a couple of different options.

One of my favourite tricks is to use the "Save Page As" function.

If you ever need to copy all the elements of a page, you can quickly do so using the Save As feature. Duplicating a page is also sometimes a wise action to take, before making any significant changes to it. That way you will not have lost any of your work if something goes wrong, or you simply don't like the changes you've made. You can always delete the copy, and your original page will still be there to go back to.

Here's how you do it:

1. Navigate to the page you want to copy
2. On the Yola toolbar, click on the down-arrow next to the "Save" button.
3. Choose "Save Page As"
5. The "Save Page As" dialog box will pop-up asking you to name your new page, (and give you the chance to change the page heading, and decide whether or not to include the new page in your menu).
6. Click "OK" and you're done. The newly created page will now appear up in the Page drop-down arrow of page choices, so you can go back to it again if you chose not to include it in your menu.

Yola gives you the option to upload a different banner image or background on each page of your site, or apply the same banner image/background to all pages. **Please note** that some styles do not have this option. If you want to know if the option to edit the background image or banner is available for a particular style, see the Yola Style Guide.

To apply the banner image to all the pages on your site:
1. Click on "Edit Page Design", then click on "Banner Image" and "Apply to All Pages".
2. A dialog box will open asking you to confirm whether you would like to apply the change to all the pages on your site. Click on "Apply and Save" if you would like to go ahead.

This will apply the banner images to all of the pages of your site.

To apply the background to all pages on your site:
1. Click on "Edit Page Design", then click on "Format Background" and "Apply to All Pages".
2. A dialog box will open asking you to confirm whether you would like to apply the change to all the pages on your site, click on "Apply and Save" if you would like to go ahead.
