Hello, is it possible create a subdirectory?
Isn't that an important seo feature for example to a multilanguage site?

Hi Bell House,

Do you mean sub-domain?

There are various ways to create multi-language sites.  One tutorial for this: How to make a multi-language site

Sub-domains may have an implied re-enforcement of a domain and as such may give an SEO boost to the domain. Sub-directories are passive and simply a facility for CMS management.

Hello Bell House

It looks like you're referring to what we call submenus. They're subpages of your main pages. Your main pages are the main links shown in your navigation bar, and subpages can be added as submenus to the main menu links.

Yola offers two ways of submenus:
  1. Flyover Menus: They're available with all Free Styles and Recommended Styles and show as a menu on mouseover, overlapping what's below a horizontal (or next to a vertical) navigation bar.
  2. Submenus: They come with any Premium Style and display permanently in a second row directly below the main menu or below the banner image.
If you'd like to know how to create these menus, please refer to these tutorials:
If you need more assistance, or if this is not the answer to your question, please let us know.

Hello Stefan, the problem is that submenus\subpages only creat two-level in navigation. I mean don create an hierarchy in the url.

Hi Bell,

That's correct. You can only create sub-levels in the navigation. (You can however create more than 2 levels of sub-pages but this is still only virtual, it's not a physical structure)

Yola doesn't allow more than a single real sub-level in the hierarchy of the URL.
