Hello Denise,
Can you tell me what specific ads you are referring to; yola does not place ads on your site. Please let me know and I will further assist.

HI Denise, you site does have a URL - its http://hopesanddreams.yolasite.com/

- thats the URL.

As for adverts (and i presume you also mean serices and widgets) - whoever told you they give virus's was wrong - If you get adverts and widgets from trust worthy sources like google or the widgets Yola reccommend you wont give anyone a virus.

Hope this helps - Lee.

PS - your site is looking good - you need to change the font colour on the 'terms and conditions' page - its not possible to read it.

make sure your entering it correctly - maybe they need or dont need the http:// or perhaps (but i doubt it) its a service which requires a 'top level domain' -- try again making sure your adding exactly what they ask for maybe they only need - hopesanddreams.yolasite.com

good luck Lee.

Hi Denise,

Unfortunately we don't have a member register and login feature yet, but we hope to add it in future. We know that many people would like to have people register for accounts and have logins for their sites. We will need to do quite a bit of development to make this possible, so please be patient while we work on this.

This might not be quite what you had in mind, but you might want to try using Google Friend Connect http://www.google.com/friendconnect/. You can find information on how to add it to your site with this tutorial: http://www.yola.com/tutorials/google-...

Please let us know if this service meets your needs or if you have additional requirements as this will help inform our planning.

Hi Denise,

For Google Friend Connect to work properly, your site does need to be published. Have you published your site?

When adding a Members Gadget to your Yola page, the gadget will not show up properly until you update (republish) your site.

While you are editing or previewing your site, Google cannot match your site address to display the gadget.

Do not be alarmed if you see an error message before you publish, such as: "We're sorry... This gadget is configured incorrectly. ...". Just click "Update my Site" and the gadget should appear correctly configured.

Please let me know if this does not solve your problem.

Hi Denise - if it is saying 'site unknown' it could be because the URL has been entered incorrectly. Did you enter something like: www.hopesanddreams.synthasite.com/ind... - where index.php is the name of the page it is on. If you have added it to a different page, remember to change the page name in the URL you submitted.

If that doesn't help, please could you let us know what URL you submitted to Google.

Hi Denise,

I have removed your post with your log in details. As Littleus mentioned, it is not advisable to post your log in details or personal info on the forum. I received your email in support and have replied to you. I am sure we can get this sorted out for you really soon.

Denise.. it's done! =)

Take a look at your published site!

Don't be alarmed by the

"We're sorry...

This gadget is configured incorrectly. Webmaster hint: Please ensure that "Friend Connect Settings - Home URL" matches the URL of this site.

It still works on the published site.

@ Kershnee or any of the Yola employees - can you please take a look at this? I did update the site for Denise and the google friend connect should reconfigure in the site builder - right? It seems to be working fine though on the published site.

Once you've created with a yolasite domain, you cannot switch back over to Synthasite. Only those who started with Synthasite have the option of keep their synthasite domain. However, if they should decide to switch over to yolasite, they too will not be able to get the synthasite domain back.

Hi denise,

littleus is correct, any new sites that are published can only use the free .yolasite domain name.

The .synthasite.com domain name is for people who built and published their sites while we were still SynthaSite and don't want to change their URL.

Hi Denise.. sorry.. I don't have your information anymore. I didn't think you'd want me to hang on to them. =) The easiest way to tell if the widget is working, is to publish your site and post your url here and I can try it out.

Yep.. it came up for me! Looks good denise. I would suggest moving your widget below the other one. The template you selected is quite narrow, so your widget is not contained inside the box.

What a cool thread! Of course we don't mind you bragging about us Denise :) Special thanks to Littleus for her help on this one (again!). I see all the Yola reps pitched in as well. Nice teamwork - everyone! We got there in the end.
