I've noticed that when I read a blog, after reading the newest posts, it has an option to view previous posts, and lasts posts... etc. How is this accomplished easily??? Or will I have to archive each page individually and if so, what happens when page 1 in the archive has to move down to page 2, so that I can post a new page 1 archive link for the most recent posts, that means everything else in the previous posts archive has to be moved to another page as well in order for the previous posts to be in order, am I misunderstanding this or will I have to create tons of pages to archive previous posts... Please help...

The archive is seamless. It somehow just moves posts into the archive and from what I can see the index remains available so that even archived articles can be selected to read. As long as your index remains OK you shouldn't have problems.

I'm not understanding... Where is this archive? Because I have kind of just created my own archiving method, what archive is seamless??? Is there some archive thing I don't know about in Yola, and if you are talking about the BLOG webpage option I'm not using that for my index page, I have a general page for my index...

Also, how can I get a bar that lets people scroll back and forth between pages, like on google or yahoo when you do a search at the bottom of the page it goes... - 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 Next and then when you click next you get - Previous 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 etc...

Hi A,

The Archive is created automatically by the Blog.

You asked how do you easily go to previous posts etc. This is done easily within an individual post. You can easily view the previous post by clicking the link or "back to posts" link.

I'm not sure of your application for the next page facility you mention.

Hi A,

What Peter means is that it's done automatically for you. Once you have enough posts, you will see that they are archived automatically.

Your most recent post will always be at the top. For more info on blogging, you can check out our tutorial on this link: http://www.yola.com/tutorials/blogging.

Let us know if you need any other help.

Hi A

I'm just curious as to how you created your own blog page. Would you mind posting your site's url so that I could take a look? If you're not comfortable, that's fine too.

No I wouldn't go as far as saying I've created my own Blog page, What I mean is it's set up like a Blog... I post things, and have links directing people to other pages with the full article or post content and there are comment boxes on that pages for them to leave comments... The gist of it all is IT'S set up LIKE it's A BLOG...

The problem with this is there is no way to keep archive links on the page or have a suscribe to feed feature... IDK it's fine I just needed some ideas or workarounds because I don't particularly like Yola's Blog setup, I love Yola but I can't use their Blog setup for my Blog and they aren't compatible with any other Blog apps... So...I'm out of answers.
