I Unpublished and then tried to republish my site (http://www.alternativementality.yolas...) Now I can add changes and save them, but it will not publish. I unpublished because some links were not working. Now all the links are working fine, however there is no way for me to add new content until I can republish again... why is this happening?

Also...
When I click publish it goes to the pop up but wont let me publish under my domain name. It says "Not Available" I know this is spelled correctly and all that but still cannot figure out why it wont go through.

Hi Di Ck,

The site published to http://alternativementality.yolasite.... is pictured below.



Can you please tell me if this is your site? The danger of unpublishing websites published to our free yolasite subdomain is that you risk the chance of someone else publishing their site to it while you make your changes. If the site pictured above is not your site, unfortunately you will need to select a new subdomain name to publish your website to.

This is my site... Ive been able figure out a way around the problem, however it is still a tad troubling to do so. When i click publish It will not simply publish the site, instead it I have to "pretend to change" the domain name then it says: this domain is already published under a different name (AlternativeMentality.etc.)
My content shows up under the correct URL however my publish button stays red and I have to go through the previous mentioned steps every time I want to publish.

Hi Di Ck
Thank you for letting us know that this is still a problem. I have asked one of our engineers to check on why this is happening. They found the problem and have published your site to http://alternativementality.yolasite.com.

If you have any more trouble, please let us know.

Thank you

Thank you all very much for an amazing support staff and and amazing site-building system. I do not lend out compliments to companies very often because of the nature of a company in general, however what you guys are allowing people to do is very important for the 1st amendment and could change the internet forever. I will be writing a testimonial soon.
