Hello julia.nixon1,

If you want to add a folder to your Yola site you can upload it to your File Manager by following these steps:

  1. On the main menu bar, click on Site > File Manager.

  2. Click on the "Upload Files" button that appears in the dialog box that opens.

  3. Browse your computer's folders for the file you would like to upload and click on "OK" to upload it.

  4. Once uploaded, you can click on the red "x" on the top right of the file upload dialog box to close it.

  5. To add the file to your page, for example a picture, drag-and-drop the Picture Widget onto your page.

  6. Click on "Browse uploaded picture" in the dialog box that opens.

  7. Choose the picture you would like to see displayed on the page.

  8. Click on "Select" to add it to the page.


You can select multiple files to upload by following one of these options:

  1. Zip up your files and upload it to the File Manager. Right-click on the file and choose to unzip it.

  2. When browsing your computer for files to upload, hold down the shift or Ctrl keys to select more than one file to upload.


Alternatively, you can use Picasa Web Albums to create a Flash slideshow to embed in your site. Each slideshow features built-in playback controls, size options, and the ability to display captions. To do this, follow these steps:


  1. Sign in to your Google Account for Picasa Web Albums using your Google Account username and password.

  2. Click the "My Photos" link and select the album you'd like to make a slideshow. 

  3. Click on the "Link to this album" - at the right of your screen.

  4. Then click the "Embed Slideshow" link. This creates a Flash slideshow from the album you've selected. When you update this album, your slideshow is automatically updated to show the latest photos. 

  5. To embed the slideshow, copy and paste the HTML code that's shown into an HTML Widget on your webpage.


Hope this helps!
