How do I link my Yola website to point to my Facebook Page? I have the 'share' widget for FB, Twitter and Google +1, but when I click on it...it doesn't open and direct me to FB.

Hello Linda,

It looks like you've accidentally listed your FB link for both your FB and Yola website. Please can you repost your link to your Yola site?

Hi Linda

Thank you for sharing your link.

When I click on the Facebook "Like" link on your home page, it prompts me to sign into Facebook to link to your page. Here is what I am seeing:



Are you clicking on the link in the Sitebuilder, or on your published site? If you are trying to view it in your Sitebuilder, the link may not work. You will either need to test it in Preview or on your published site.

Does that help? Let us know if you need more help with it.

I would like for it to link to my FaceBook Fan Page...is there a way to do this?

This just puts a post in your profile that you "like" the website.

Hi Linda,

We missed your reply. Our apologies. If you want to link it to your Facebook Fan Page, then first, you need to unlink your current Facebook account, here's how:

1. Click on "Account" in the upper right hand corner.
2. Click on "Application Settings".
3. Change the "Show" drop down menu to "Authorized".
4. Locate Yola among your listed applications and click the "x" on the right hand side to remove it.

Once this is done you can now link to your new Facebook account by following these steps:

1. Log into the Facebook account you would like to link to.
2. Go to your website and send another update to Facebook.
3. Accept the request to connect to Facebook.
4. Your Yola site will now stay connected to that Facebook account and you can continue to send updates to it.

I hope that does the trick!
