Hi Justin,

Don't leave Yola! Keep an account going and if you ask general questions not specific to another site-builder then it's all relevant.

If you ask questions specific of another system then it can't really be dealt with.

many users have other site-building accounts as well as their Yola account and can comfortably swing between each.

ok i will keep an account going. Im just not happy with yola's lack of features and reliance on third party solutions. im thinking of moving to webs.com as they have a much stronger set of features but the webs.com forum is really slow and the staff hardly use it so i prefer the yola forum. If yola improve in the future i may come back but for now i think its time to switch.

i actually feel sad about moving :S i love yola's ease to design sites but under the fancy design there's just not much going on..

Hi Justin

Gop has given you some great advice. We are pleased that you like our forum and we are happy to continue chatting to you about website building as long as the discussion is relevant to this community.

We are currently in planning mode for new features and we already have a great list going, but let us know specifically which ones you feel Webs has that we are missing so I can be sure to incorporate this in my feedback to our development team!

Hi Monique
The main feature that webs has over yola is the membership system (if yola had this feature then i would probably stay). The membership system is integrated with nearly all of the best features on webs allowing you to comment on the forum and blog with your profile. (There is something that webs lacks and that is the option to have paid membership where you charge a fee per month or per year)

other features include:

1. Forum (integrated with the membership system)
2. FAQ pages
3. Wiki Pages
4. Comment system with facebook integration (integrated with nearly all webs features and the membership system)
5. Calender page that events can be added to events.

The best thing about these features is that most of them are built by webs so they can tailor them specifically to the site builder and any problems can be quickly resolved.

I hope (at the very least) that yola can roll out the membership system, this is the most requested feature across the whole of this forum. As soon as yola gains these features i will probably come back.

One last thing - i think yola's pricing is unjustifiable considering that webs has more features and costs less. Yola's top package costs $19.95 and webs top package costs $16.67.

surely it is better to have more people paying less than less people paying more!

Thanks for taking my opinion into account i just really hope that yola can do this so that it doesn't lose many more customers.
