Feature Requests 27/04/09

1. I would love to able to choose link colours, text decoration, target, hover colour?
At present (using the editor) its hit or miss trying to get them to even change colour, I suppose some of those choices would need to be assigned in editable CSS, is that on its way?, if yes any idea of timescale?

2. In the text editor when you add an image and make it into a link it adds a border, im sure most of the time people would rather not have a border round the image or at least be able to choose.

3. I'd love to see some kind of column system in the text editor. I know you can add columns in many other different ways but it would be nice to stay in the text editor.

4. adding borders to widgets would be good.

5. & drag in divider widgets would be good.

You guys do a really great job, i am a big fan of Yola.

Lee,

All your suggestions are excellent.

The dividers are a great idea. I,m sure you know how to do this and one thing I'd like to bring in here for your thoughts is the infinite possibilities of divider images. I would expect that if there was some sort of library for dividers then this would have to be very limited.

I think that there are simply too many possibilities for this to be so useful. I suspect that the request for additions would be incessant.

If it was simply a facility to "add a divider here" and then select from your own image library that would be a great addition.

ive seen the 'divider drag in' on one of yolas competiors sites, i was thinking more of just a pixel choice than a image (although that would be cool) --- choose 1px dotted 50px wide or 2px solid 700px wide + vertical or horizontal ooptions -- The one i used while testing site builders was just black colour only and you could choose the % width -- im sure Yola could come up with something better.

I can make dividers, no problem, this feature would be nice for new users and make my life just that little bit easier :-)

Thanks Lee.

Dengue is mosquito borne.

Swine flu is a major fear in SEA. Avian flu is endemic the last think they want is the pig production cut and of course the people factor.

Politicians here rallying big time. Interestingly pork meat prods have risen 5% just today! Work that out ??

any publicity is godd publicity - right? - this is pushing that to its limits of truth. - There is a slight panic here in the UK, just because its maanged to reach America - however i beleive all the deaths from it have been due to hyperthermia - every house in England has central heating so i carnt see it being an issue here. Eat more chicken soup. Lee.

Hi Lee

Thanks for this great list of features.

1. We are considering this one as part of a bigger project related to styles.
2. The border around an image when it is a hyperlink is specific to certain styles and is the way the style author designed it. However, this is a very good point - we should have consistency across all our styles so that you don't have to switch styles if you don't happen to like this feature of a particular style. We will take this into account as we grow our style library. There are other areas of inconsistency we also need to address.
3-5. These suggestions are somewhat new so I will pass them on to the development team for consideration.

Hi Smithy,
Are you wanting Yola to offer a from scratch template creation tool? That is a nice feature request, I will add this to the list of features to be considered in future releases. Thanks!

Hi guys

Why wait for all these things to appear in yola, when there is a website development program already out there you can use.

Oh I forgot............it costs................US$399

We seem to forget that yola is free and I for one am grateful for as much as we already have. Some of the sites developed with yola are fantastic and if you are just learning this forum is worth it's weight in gold.

Just one thing we could do with though!
But it can wait for another day.
