Hi fishcake

Welcome to SynthaSite! We are glad you like our service!

Can you tell me what do you want to ftp and to where?
What login details do you need? Your log in details for SynthaSite are the email address and password you used when you created your account.

For a site to work with SynthaSite it needs to have been built with our editor - so what you have in mind might not be possible.

Best wishes
Monique

Hi fishcake

Unfortunately this is not possible. All pages need to have been built with our editor in order to work in SynthaSite.

I am sorry I could not be of more help with this!

Greetings

I'm sorry, but only pages that have been built with SynthaSite can be hosted by us. However, if you have an HTML code for your affiliates you can use that.

:( Do you guys have any plans to make FTP uploading possible in the future as some of us web designers like to have more control over our design and as such design on our desktops and then upload our content via ftp.

Hi Mark,

I don't think this is planned, but, you can upload HTML/CSS/JavaScript files to your file manager if you have Yola Silver. I upload JavaScript, HTML, and CSS files all the time. But, it wont be in the parent directory unfortunately. It'll be in the "resources/" directory like this:

Hello Mark,

Further to what Nathan said, you can also upgrade to Yola Silver and have access to the Site CSS feature. This will also help in giving you a bit more control over your site's design.

Hi Mark,

Yola isn't really a hosting service to upload HTML-built websites, but it is rather a website builder that allows you to build sites easily without any HTML knowledge. (of course you can still have HTML knowledge :])

I use the HTML widgets all the time on my Yola site. I have designed some websites with Yola that look different than the style because of custom HTML/CSS/JavaScript.

Did you know you can add custom HTML to your page by using Yola's HTML Widget? Also if you have Yola Silver you can use the Custom CSS to apply CSS styles all the way across your site on all pages, and you can add stuff to all pages at once in the <head> tag and in the footer of your site using the tracking code, which can be found by going to Site > Site Settings > Site Tracking Code

If you upgrade to Yola Silver, you'll be able to customize your site much more. Here are some features of Yola Silver:

- Custom Site CSS
- Site Tracking Code (add code to all pages to your site at once)
- Ability to upload HTML & JavaScript files
- Custom Domain included with Yola Silver
- And much more.

Sanja has provided a link to more information about Yola Silver.

Kind regards,
Nathan
