  • Updated 9 years ago
Hi All

This is to let you know that tomorrow, 25 July, Yola logins will be disabled for 4-6 hours for a feature release and upgrade.

We realize that it is always inconvenient if the site builder is down for maintenance when you were hoping to edit your site, and we apologize for this. However, we have tried to select a time with the lowest possible number of customers online and we trust that the features we are releasing will make Yola better for everyone!

Please note: Your published sites will NOT be affected during our maintenance activities and people will still be able to see your sites online.

If all goes according to plan, logins will be disabled at:
6am PDT
9am ET
1pm GMT

To see the time in your timezone, check out the World Clock

When logins are restored you will find some great new ways to personalize your website with more options for editing your style. We are excited about the features we are releasing and hope you will be too.

Watch this thread for the latest updates on the release!

Just a reminder: Yola logins will be disabled within the next 30 minutes to an hour.

If you are currently working in the site builder, start thinking about wrapping up whatever you are doing and saving your work.

We will post another update when logins are disabled.

Hi All

Yola logins are now restored! You can log in and edit your sites as normal.

I will do a post a little later to explain the new features. Although I am sure you will go exploring on your own :)

Thank you all for your patience during the release. Speak to you again soon!

Could you give me the logo name and let me know if it's in a folder? Please also let me know where it is situated on your site.

Well! Here are the changes that I can see so far:

1. Ability to remove Yola footer link.
2. Some new templates.
3. Ability to make banner and background image changes, site wide.
4. New affilate called Appointment plus in the widget area.

My site has lost its customized banner on every page. And when I go in to see if I can edit it, this is no longer an option. Help!
