To all our loyal Yola users!

Happy New Year! To start off 2011 right, we’re pleased to announce some exciting changes to Yola’s overall offering. We’re working day and night to bring you the best way to build and manage your online web presence and we are continuing to be the market leader in our space. We have signed up over 5m users worldwide and launched Yola in 5 additional languages: Spanish, French, Portuguese, German & Italian!

To our Yola Silver members, we’ve just added:

Unlimited Premium Styles

You have unlimited access to any of our Premium Styles. Choose a Premium Style from the style gallery and apply it to your site. You can use a Premium Style on all the sites in your account. Now you’ll be able to use any premium style you want on any of your 25 sites.

Premium Phone and Email Support

If you need a little help, talk to or email a live person from our award-winning customer support team. You have access to English phone support for up to 90 days from purchase and all year round premium email support, which moves you up in the queue and receives a human response in less than 24 hours.

Additionally, in the near-future (within the next 4-6 weeks), we plan on introducing more features, including:

* Custom site CSS
* Sub-menu site navigation
* And much more!

And of course, let’s not forget the great features that the Yola Silver package already has:

* Custom domain name (.com, .net, .org, or .biz)
* Yola footer logo removal
* Advanced site visitor statistics and analytics
* $100 worth of free credits for logos and advertising

At the same time, along with these great new features, we have also had to raise the price to $99.95/year. This is a great value and is still very competitive with the market.

Q. How do I get these new features?

A. As an existing Yola Silver customer you will automatically have access to all these new features effective immediately

Q. I already have Silver, will the price change affect me?

A. No. Although the price of Yola Silver is increasing to $99.95/year., as a valued customer you will pay the same price on your next renewal.
Thanks again for all your support in helping Yola become the global icon for easy to use website development!

Sincerely,
Vinny, CEO

Sometimes also called drop-down menus. This allows you to divide up the pages of your site into top level pages and sub-pages.

This is great news! so now I can use the premuim sites at no extra cost.
But how about removing the "link" on the footer of the Free designs?
This would give us a more flexible design selection for the sites

Hi Josh, sorry we missed your question earlier. Are you referring to the design credit links, such as the ones pointing to Free CSS Designs? Unfortunately those cannot be removed, but you now have access to all the Premium Styles that do not contain a design credit!

Wow!!! This is very exciting! :) I'm very excited about this!

But in the Tech Crunch article there is a screen shot of the page with HP | Yola and it says Offer Valid Until Jan. 6, 2010. That means it was last year. Is this just an outdated screen shot?

Thanks,
Nathan

Also does this mean now we can just go and choose premium styles to use and it doesn't ask us to pay for them? I see it says "PREMIUM" instead of the price of it anymore. Do we just choose it and it applies it to our site?

Thanks,
Nathan

Way to look at the fine print! That screenshot was just a mock up of some of the co-branding you could see as a result of our partnership. As for your follow up question, you're correct, you can now apply any style to your website if you are a Yola Silver subscriber, the possibilities are endless!

Thats great! :) This is very exciting! Can't wait for the Custom CSS too! :) (Even though I use my own CSS files already, I am sure this will make it much easier!)

Hi Laura,
Ok, I understand not been able to remove the "Free CSS Designs link" but then...what about giving us new designs? or at least allow us to upload our own templates? just saying

Hello Josh

We are looking to release new templates but are in the process of testing them and working out any bugs. We are not sure when this will be released but it is coming! Currently, it is not possible to upload your own templates but with the upcoming release of being able to edit the CSS, this will hopefully give you much more flexibility!

Hello, I am thinking it will be unlimited. (I am sure it will be since we are on a paid account) And since they allow unlimited pages, I am sure they will allow unlimited sub menu teirs.

Best Regards,
Nathan

Hi anorth1994

We are still working on this feature and as yet do not have all the details. We will have more details closer to launch time.

Keep watching this space!
