Ok, instead of using up way to much time, I'll just ask at the risk of sounding stupid. If the shoe fits right, LOL! Ok, Yola provides a template which is all I need to have a website. But, are there no choices given to me as to what fonts or colors I can use? Are there compatible tools I can download to help me create a more custom website? Do I need to learn HTML? I didn't do the research before I joined up obviously. I am not upset in fact, the more I have to actually do myself the better off I will be in the end. More knowledge for me instead of everything being done for me. But I also think I might be missing something that Yola may have. I can't seem to find the info on the Yola site. Like what options I have in "creating" my website basically.

Thank you much, denise:)
PS I guess to put it simply, are the templates(as they are)the only thing I get from Yola to "create" my website? If so, how do people customize and where can I get the step by step instructions:)?
