I currently have a website with about hundred download products I sell through payloadz.. I am struggling to get the layout in a managable way.

I have set up picture with html box underneath but I can only fit three of these combinations across the page.. then to run more down the page I can't give a big enough space between them.. I really need to insert a table of somekind but can't figure out how (only seem to be able to insert columns and that's not helpful).

I would prefer to use the catalogue of products feature for online store but you can't set this up with payloadz (payloadz uses paypal but you can't set up downloads in paypal). I want the site to be self operating with the downloads just sitting there.. what's the quickest way for me to set up my downloads any ideas?

Yola has a simple link unit where you can input urls/pages etc
that any use to you?
other wise you could html it in a module-again simple on yola.

tables only seem to be columns that go across aren't they? you can't seem to add proper tables like you can in frontpage for example? will take a look though..

urls/pages.. you mean that I host myself? bit confused?

Hello celticobsessions

Just re-reading your original post above. In regards to this comment "then to run more down the page I can't give a big enough space between them.."

What you could do is insert blank Text Widgets between each row. You can add more space by hitting the "enter" key on your keyboard.

If you decide to go with a table, you can still add pictures to each square in your table. You would need to add an img src tag. It would look something like this: <!--<img src="http://yoursite.yolasite.com/resource...>

Please do not include the <!-- and --> as this helps to stop the code from being interpreted on the forum.

I hope this answers your question. If not, or if you had something different in mind, please let me know.

the tables feature on that link.. I won't allow me to add pictures into the table. I uploaded the pictures to photobucket but every time I add the url for the picture it shows the link as being broken. how do you add photos into the table?

I suggest uploading your photos to your File Manager so that you know that you always have a reliable host for your images. Then you can use that img src tag to add your images.

What you need to do is go into the HTML version of the table code and then add your img src tag. Perhaps the easiest thing to do is to copy the code for your table (without any pictures) and paste this here on the forum or you can email me at support@yola.com and I can help you further. If you wish to post on the forum, please use this HTML encoder first: http://forsite.synthasite.com/encoder...

Thank you for your patience as we work on this together.
