If you click 'edit menu' and remove the home page from the menu you will probably beable to use that space.

M page style is 36 fantastic. Just for fun I added another page and the new link appeared in that huge "blank" area I was talking about. So, now my question has migrated to, is there any way to reduce the width of the link area to maximize the content area?

TY all for your previous replies.

kk, new at this. There seems to be many 36 Fantastics on the site, but only one Entomology style. That's the style I used for my blog.

Hi Bruce

The template you're actually using is called "Entomology". =)

Unfortunately, there is not a way to reduce the width of the menu area where you have your links.

If this is something that bothers you, you may want to consider using another template.

You may also want to consider implementing a custom menu. You will need to select a menu which offers a horizontal menu. Then, you can go to "edit menu" to drag all of your menu pages from "in menu" to "out menu". This will hide your menu pages.

Next, you can drag a 2-column (or column divider) widget over. Place all your content in the right hand column. Then in the left hand column, drag an HTML widget over and you can add your text links there. You can also implement a more advanced menu by using buttons links or custom vertical menu codes.

Here are some resources:
www.cooltext.com (to make your own buttons)
www.flashvortex.com (vertical menu maker)
www.yolacodes.yolasite.com (a resource available to Yola Users that contains a whole bunch of codes. You can look under "Navigation Menu" - please read the rules before grabbing the code)

A Yola Style guide which allows you to see the options available for each template: http://www.yola.com/yola-style-guide

Please let us know if we can be of further assistance.
