Hi minoation

If by "skin" you mean your own background image - yes.. you can upload it to your file manager. However, only certain templates allow for customized background images. Please refer to the Yola style guide to see which templates allow for this option: http://www.yola.com/yola-style-guide

However if "skin" mean your own css template or likewise, then, unfortunately, the answer is no you cannot upload this into your site.

I hope that the Yola style guide will help you find a template that will work for you.

Hello Minoation,

I'm sorry but at this time it isn't possible to upload your own skin.

Right now you need to select your style from our style library. We are currently working on adding more and better styles/templates with more customization options. We are getting close to being able to release some great new styles, we are going to introduce the ability to customize your styles by giving you much more control over page properties such as header text, background color, logo, banner image etc. We are also implementing a way to allow you to create sub-navigation for your site.

This is a massive project that involves some major changes to our current style library. New screens for the user interface have to be designed and implemented to accommodate all these exciting new options, and there is plenty of code that has to be written to handle all the new style data. Unfortunately we can't give a delivery date on a big, multi-part project like this one, however, I can tell you that you should start seeing some of these new options by approximately end-July (hopefully a bit sooner).

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 forsite.synthasite.com, where one of our Yola users has added a page to his site comparing styles.

I really hope you will be able to find something that suits you and if you have further questions please let us know.

Kind Regards,
Emmy
