Is there any way to get better editing features on the blog page. I am profoundly dissatisfied with the blog features available to us on Yola as it has no way to wrap text around a photograph, and many times the photograph feature insists on putting it in a very awkward place. Are there other blog aps available to us?

Helo Gail,

Yola's blog is being deprecated so it is wise to follow on your idea of an alternative.

Tumblr is the recommended blog for Yola built sites. You can add it to page as a widget.

Hi Gail,

As Gop said, we do recommend Tumblr, in fact, we have incorporated a Tumblr Widget within the Yola Sitebuilder to make this a very easy collaboration.

You can locate the Tumblr Widget in the "Communications" folder and add it to your website by clicking and dragging, as you do with the other widgets already. Next, simply enter your Tumblr URL and click "OK".

If you opt to use a blog environment other than Tumblr, you can easily incorporate it by adding a direct text link to your blog, embedding an iFrame or by making a link in your navigation menu redirect to your external blog.

We do encourage you to look around and find what's best for you. If you need any assistance with adding the blog to your site, give us a shout. We'll be happy to help!
