I have noticed that header 1 is a link on all pages and when clicked it takes you back to the index page. Can you remove the link option so the header is no longer a link? I really hope someone can help me with this.

Hi Sally
Highlight the affected text with the cursor, click on the link icon in the toolbar and click OK, that should remove the link. You will need to do this on every page.

I have went to my yola site and tried to highlight the text but it wont let me. As soon as I put the cursor near the wording to highlight the words it opens the edit header box. What am I doing wrong? This is the first time building a full web site so I am a newbe lol...

I have recreated the affect on my site and I think this is a default action with the site builder and the styles, the only way you could remove the links is to delete the text altogether and then if your style supports custom banners you could create a custom banner with your desired text on it. You have a different banner for each page which is unusual so it would require a bit of work, I would consider using the same banner for every page and using a text widget at the top of each page for your custom text headers.
Post back if you need any help.

Hi I am doing this site for a visually impaired client, so it's finding a fine line where its visually appealing but also screen reader friendly. I originally had the text on the banners I designed, but screen readers only see it as an image and can't read any text within an image. There is already a line of text below nav bar in white so you can't see it, but screen readers will pick it up, and it's acting as alt text for the banner image. Back to the drawing board......... thanks for all your help.

Hi,

What you have to do is edit the header (by clicking it in the sitebuilder) and enter this code before the text:

</a>


I hope that helps!

I personally wouldn't worry about the links, there is nothing to suggest they are links and if you hadn't told me I wouldn't have known

Thanks again, using the Parthiv suggested seems to have done the trick.
