I am using Yola for one of my websites, however, it seems that I have a few question.
1. What is the best way to add an article which consist of tables?
2. How do I prevent people to copy and paste my articles?
3. On the “tell a friend” page I want the client to be able to submit his email address along with a friends email address or a message.
4. On the “contact us” page I want the client to add his detail and submit it – (also how do I retrieve that info??)

Thank you in advance

Hi Zane

I won't be able to help you with the first two questions, but I hope to offer some suggestions for questions 3 & 4.

My suggestion would be use a form such as which allows you to create an email form or other kinds of forms. You can embed the form right into your site. The information collected is then sent to you via your email.

Other forms such as wufoo is another option which basically offers the same thing.

A suggestion for question one :
Create the article in a simple html editor. I like to use KompoZer. It's a free open source application.

Click on the source view (html view), select all, and copy the html code.

Go to your Yola website editor.

Add a text widget, and click inside the widget. Click on the "<>HTML" editor.
Paste the HTML code inside the editor, and hit OK.

Your article should now be visible in the format generated in your standalone HTML editor.

You might also be able to compose the article in a document software and paste it in a text widget, but I have not played extensively with this approach, as I prefer pasting the HTML directly.

The following Tableizer page might be handy for simple tables ;

Sample generated from this page :

table.tableizer-table {border: 1px solid #CCC; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12px;} .tableizer-table td {padding: 4px; margin: 3px; border: 1px solid #ccc;}
.tableizer-firstrow td {background-color: #104E8B; color: #FFF; font-weight: bold;}

Hello Pablo,

I have just seen this auto-bumped thread.

I looked at your reference re Tableizer.

I pasted some typical Excel data in it and the results are perfect. Many times i recommend Google Docs etc but for this straight forward application I can't think of anything easier. It's amazing and something I will certainly keep in mind. So simple but so clear.

Thanks for such a great link.
