Is there a main window that shows all the topics under discussion? Just wondering because I think I posted this before but in "search" I dont find my post.

Anyway, I found the code site(littleus has created a few menus there)and I want to try out a code to see if I want it for my website. I find rules and about the codes and using them but I cannot find where to actually "get into" the test site. I find a chatbox I can log into but that is as far as I find to go? Can someone give me instructions on finding the actual codes of the menubars? No problem finding them but can't find codes. Thank you much, denise

Hey Denise,

If your using Firefox go to 'view' then click on 'page source', look for the code then copy. Which particluar menu do you want? If you tell me I may be able to walk you through it.

Hi Denise...

The Yola Code site is a 2-step process. The Yola Code Site just shows you what we have in the "library".

Then, you need to go to www.yolatestsite.yolasite.com. Then sign into the chatbox. Then, go to yola.com and enter in the username and password as given in the rules on the yola code site. Once you're finished with the Yola Test site, then you can type "log out" in the chatbox.

I hope that makes sense to you. Anytime you need help with the codes, please email the site moderator. =)

Ok, I don't know if I know what you mean by "library" but I am thinking these menu's are ok to use, and, customize. But you are saying use the test site to customize them and then copy from there? I understand about signing in and out but it didn't make sense to sign into the chat unless you wanted to chat, lol! But that's ok, I guess that is just how it's done:) Denise

The reason why you need to sign into the chat box is so that we can see if someone is in the Yola Test site. Only 1 person at a time can be in there so that we don't accidentally mess up someone else's work. The chat box is not necessarily for chatting - but like a log book. So if you see someone on the chat box that says "log in" - that means you should not go in until that person has typed "log out". I hope this makes sense to you now.

Hi Littleus,

Code boxes could be a good idea. Like underneath the preview of the navigation menu is code boxs with each seperate piece of code to put into html widgets. eg.

One code box would hold the html of the menu and tell people to put this into a html widget.

Then the second code box would have the css of the nav menu telling people to put this into a seperate html widget.

It would leave it so that people would only have to copy & paste.

Just an Idea!

I love the idea of code boxes Connor but unfortunately, as Alex said, due to TOS of the codes, I cannot do this. This is the best workaround I can think of. I'm always open to suggestions though as to how this can be improved.

Does the website you got then from have code boxes with the code?

excellent question Connor. If they do then the codes could be copied from there. If they are displayed you can copy them in most cases, I mean, not against the site rule?? For me personally, and for many I am sure, it's almost impossible to figure out which "code" in a whole page source goes with that particular element?

Oh yeah, ditto on this. I got so hooked on Dreamweaver because it has a "split screen" option and when you click on part of your site(in the sitebuilder/Dreamweaver)it automatically highlites the exact part of the code. In other words, if you click on the Header in the builder, it shows you the html in the other window. I know we can't have that here but another example is the Nabble forum. You see the forum you like and it generates the code for you.

My html as well as css are so limited that just looking through a page source can take so long and be so discouraging.

Thank you for the idea Connor;)
