Creative HTML (code source)

I find it really unfortunate that we can not ourselves create complete HTML pages. (source code) we are limited to your template. I try to create a dynamic photo page with CSS / Javascript and I can not.

to be in competition with other providers website, you should give more freedom to your customers so they can freely create the pages they want.

I recognize that it is easy to use Yola, but have the choice to create with a template or create ourself pages will put you in position in the competition with others suppliers.

I unfortunately bought sylver for 1 year and I have to live with now.

I use a flash animated photo gallery that uses javascript and css and I have no problems with it functioning using an "iframe" tag in an html widget.
It would be nice if you could have the option to either create a website from scratch or use a template and the sitebuilder, however, you were aware when you purchased your package that the option to create from scratch was not available. Yola is geared towards site owners that don't have any or very little site building knowledge so they can get a presence on the web easily and quickly. Maybe Yola will consider this option sometime in the near future.
There are a LOT of options to edit what is here and create a very dynamic site. Take a look at and (from Both of these sites use interactive elements and a lot of working knowledge of site creation. If you have the know-how, then you too can rise above the basic building blocks and manipulate them to create what you want. Both the owners of the two sites I mentioned are very visible here in the forum and are always VERY helpful. If you pose your question here, I'm sure that there will be someone that can help you to achieve the results you want!

Hello Claude,

If I am right, you are referring to not being able to add the link to the CSS and Javascript files in the <head> section of your page. Well this is now actually possible (not that it matters too much anyway). Online resources tell you to add the links to external CSS and JS files in the head section as it looks better and has all of these files uploaded before the content referring to it.

To add code to the header section of your website, please follow these simple instructions:

1. Open the sitebuilder
2. Click on the Site button in the Main Menu in the Sitebuilder, and click on Site Properties.
3. Click on Site Tracking.
4. Add the code to the header section.

You can add interactive galleries to Yola and they can be very simple to add to your Yola website. As Eat_A_Peach (i,e. Peach or Diane) has explained, I have added the gallery here: I have created a guide to help the Yola users add this gallery to their website. This guide can be found here:

If you need any assistance with this gallery or any other type of gallery then I will be able to assist you here on this forum. Or on my Forum at:

Kind Regards,
