Changing domains but wanting to use my modified Yola template

I have Yola Silver. I built a home page based on a Yola template that I chose a few years ago. I have changed domains but would like to use my current modified Yola template with the content included, but on the new domain. How do I do this? I could build the home page again based on the same template, but the Yola template that I modified is no longer available on the Yola site.
Secondly, because I didn’t see the template that I had from a few years ago I tried to Select a Website Template for my new domain, but when I clicked on one (for example, Haystack), it didn’t bring up the template. I then chose the blank template for my new domain, but in actuality, the template isn’t blank and it has an embedded banner and header that I can’t delete. I went to the HTML code, but I can’t delete it. How can these widgets be deleted? I can't change my template to any in the Template Gallery either, such as Haystack, Carbon, Chaplin, Vanguard, etc.? These are not available in th Style tab when I go to edit my site.

A response from Yola is not needed now. Part of my problem was that I was using Safari and its incompatibility with Yola does not allow users to see the details and choose a website template from the Gallery. Once I downloaded and used Chrome as my browser I was able to proceed as normal and choose and customize a template for my new domain rather than trying to copy over my previous Yola site.

Sorry to hear Safari was causing such a frustrating experience for you but I'm glad Chrome is working better for you. Also I wanted to help clarify the difference between our new templates and our old styles. You may find my reply in this thread to be useful.
