Hi there,

I visited free ccs templates & saw a lot of designs there, it was very touching experience, which forced me to think of developing a website by downloading a template from free ccs template and then upload & enhance it by using yola. I need help with this issue, so i request all community members to suggest and help me.

Unfortunately this is not possible. You need to select your style from our style library. We are working on adding more and better styles/templates with more customization options.

Hi there Kershnee,

Thanks for the info. I know a lot is still undelivered by Yola as it is a place where you can be sure of achieving long lasting and endless satisfaction, so i am sure that additions will be made very soon. Further i will surely have a look at link suggested by you.

No offense Yola, your affordable domains and free builder is... unriveled; However, for SEVERAL months worth of posts I read these " soon there will be more templates, soon you can upload and customize, soon there will be a greater spectrum of style choices. I love you guys but you sound like dodgey politicians... can you give us any kind of time frame at all? I just bought a domain name with you and I am using my site for business and sunflowers, yellow jackets, or grassy medows don't fit my "Poetic Debauchery."

Give us hope and anticipation. So much like Christmas, we can all sit and wait and wish.

Hi Kayvon,

I'm sorry that you are feeling frustrated. We have added the option to change the background to several of our styles.

At the moment have 6 styles where you can add a background:

1. Tastelessly
2. Burlap
3. CleanSlate
4. BareNecessities
5. NoFrills
6. SqueakyClean

These styles can be found in the first 10 of the style selection (click on 'Change Style' to see the style selection).

To change your background on your page, follow these steps:

1. Click on the "Properties" tab on the sidebar on the right.
2. At the bottom of the "Properties tab", under "Background image" click on the three dots (...) to choose or upload an image.
3. Click on "OK" and the image will be added as a background to your page.

Please note that the background will apply to that specific page and not to the whole site. To remove the background image, follow the same steps above and click on the 'None' button in the image selector dialog box that opens.
Perhaps this option would better suit your needs at present.
Can I also suggest looking at this website which a Yola user has created, it showcases some of the different styles we have available.
I hope you can find a solution for your website.
