Hi Galen,

Unfortunately it is not possible to create or upload your own template.

Right now you need to select your style from our style library. We are working on adding more and better styles/templates with more customization options.

Currently you can change the banner image, colour palette and background image on some of our styles. We want to make more options available like this, and one of our future plans is to allow you to develop your own CSS style if this is something that interests you. However, this functionality is going to take significant engineering on our part, so it is still a little ways into the future. In the meantime I hope you can find a style to suit your needs.

You may be interested in this link: Yola Style Guide - It has a handy filter function for you to see which style you might like. You can also check out this site -, where one of our Yola users has added a page to his site comparing styles.

Hi Galen,

Good to see you back here.

The answer is......

No you can't create a template from first principles. Yola has designed a large series of these based on their primary template specifications.

They are definitely looking at opening this up to users as more and more customers ask for this facility. It's a big change-around since their original model and I have seen very recently a user break their page by getting into CSS aspects. Most users wouldn't know what was dangerous or not so the whole basis is to offer a protected environment for users to work in and not hit holes that can destroy their sites. As you're probably aware CSS designers have to roll with those falls frequently but they have the knowledge and the experience to pick up or know what the process is. We don't

So. There isn't yet but there will be something coming in the future. it would be great if you were able to offer your knowledge to those learning when it all happens. :)
