Is there any way to put a custom theme to my website? I paid a company to make me one but I dont know how to put it online on my yola website.. So I have to buy Yola Pro? How to upload it then put it online on my website? I know you can still buy a theme for 30,00$ but I already have one that I bought from the company. All the code is in a folder on my computer. how to put it on my website. WOWclipper.com is my website.

Thank you. If it works, paying 3,00$ by PayPal account! Thank you and I hope you'll find the answer as fast as possible! :)

Hi Jean-Michel Mailhot,

Unfortunately it is not possible to upload and make use of your own template. You still need to chose one of the templates we have on selection.

If you have a Yola Pro account, you are allowed to upload and use .css files.
These are uploaded to the "Resource" folder of your site. However, your custom styles are not auto-loaded for you. You will need to add them with the HTML widget.

e.g.:

<link href="resources/your-custom-style.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="screen" />

You manually add your files with the HTML editor. The advantage is that you can use the same stylesheet across multiple pages - edit the one file, and your changes reflect on all the pages. As such your files will be included after the default template files and will over-ride the default.

Please note that this is an option for advanced users and we will not be able to assist you if your CSS edits break your site. If you unsure of how to proceed, we recommend that you try this on a blank test site first before attempting it on a website which contains your valuable content.

Thanks Kershnee!

I just wanted to add that if editing the CSS of the style sheet is not for you, you can personalize one of our existing styles by using our built in, easy to use "Edit Style" functionality.

For more information on how to do this, see: http://www.yola.com/customer-support/...
