Deos anyone have a free site with this company that actually works? I find the instructions very confusing. They keep sending me instructions but nothing works.

Hi Ian.Gledhill

I am sorry to hear that you are confused. There are thousands of customers who use this forum who have successful free sites with Yola. I am sure some of them will share their experience with you.

We would really love to help you get your site up and running. Can you tell us exactly what you have tried so far and what has not been working for you? I know you said "nothing works". That may well be true, but can you give me somewhere to start helping you? If we could take one issue at a time I am sure we could make rapid progress.

Hi,

It can definitely be a learning curve if you don't know anything at all about website building or html. Yola is easy but it takes a little time like anything else. Yola has the best support in the world. If you like check out this link to a pdf file I created: http://testvillage.yolasite.com/pdf
It's very basic stuff with some screenshots just to get started. Then check out all the really great tutorials and videos Yola provides on the help page. Ask questions here someone is always happy to help.

yep... view my FREE site... you can do just about anything with the free option, http://youcanneverbetoosmart.com

Let me know specifically what you need help with. I'm sure everyone else would also help. Yola tends to make things difficult by explaining things in detail when a brief explanation is easier to understand. They are just doing what they were trained to do for their job. Asking questions on this forum can often get you a simpler version of the same answer.

Hello Ian,

Trust me, you've chosen the right free website to get started with! Play around with the templates. Chose one and play around with dragging in text widgets. Most of all have fun!

Best wishes,
Sister
