Hmmm... Maybe someone can answer this. I made a second website and I want it to have the same theme/style as my first one. I couldn't find the theme called esence which was really perfect. Maybe is missed it or something or maybe it was deleted. Is it possible to make your own website theme/style because there are specific things that I want my website to have such as a banner image that repeats and the free styles don't necessarily have all those aspects. Or maybe there's a way I can at least manipulate the style's HTML?? Please and thank you! ♥

Hello Paisley,

Right now you do need to choose a style from our Style Library and many of them have the option to change both the banner image and the background image so there is quite a lot you can do to personalize your style. Here is a link to a tutorial with more information on customizing your style: Tutorial: Personalize your Style.

Another thing available to you if you are a Yola Silver account holder is CSS editing. Here is a link to a tutorial with more information on this: How to edit your site CSS.

I hope this information is helpful!

I have the free Yola version, not the silver. Can I still edit pages? I'm assuming that's a special pay-for option? It's okay, if so. And I expect it to be anyways so I'm not getting my hopes too far up lol =)

Hello,
As Emmy stated, the CSS editing is a Silver feature. You can, however, customize much of your site such as changing your banner, background image, adding music and images, creating text boxes with borders and much more. Please take a peek at the tutorial that was linked above - Personalize your Style. This will give you many fantastic suggestions for customizing your site.

I love how you made it so easy and simple, it's so much easier than having to make a website the hard way without any places like Yola. Also not only is it easier and free but it's pretty smart and to-the-point. Even for people that aren't computer-smart can easily make a website with it. Also, I'd like to thank you. You are all very considerate, patient, and helpful. Thank you!!
