I want to be able to automatically redirect everyone that visits ur url to our Facebook page until we are finished building our website. I am aware of how to do this using an ugly "under construction" static homepage, but can't figure out how to do this on Yola without a page. Preferably without using HTML coding, although this may be unavoidable.

Hi Ryan,

I suggest that you create a separate site for your re-direct. It only needs to be 1 page; your home page. The re-direct can happen within seconds so there's nothing much you need to put on this page. For continuity with your final site it may be good to use the same design you plan for your final site.

For your final site create it as you plan with a different file name and you can go at your own pace.

On your interim re-direct you do need to set up a small bit of HTML.

Pull an HTML widget onto your page and paste this code into it with your specific FB URL
<META HTTP-EQUIV="refresh"
content="0; URL=http://the URL of the Facebook site">

It will re-direct almost immediately. You won't be able to edit this page after setting it up but you will be able to delete the site and redo it if needed.
