Hello Achieve,

I would suggest that you use a file widget or an image link that people can click on to download a coupon.

The Yola File Widget makes it easy for you to create a link to a file, so that people can view it on your site or download it.

Here is how to use it.

1. Drag and drop a File Widget onto your page from the Right hand Sidebar

2. A box will open and you can choose to upload a file or browse your file manager.

3. Click on OK and your link will appear on your page.

Visitors to your site will then be able to click on your link and download your coupon.

I hope this helps. If you need any further assistance, please let us know.

Hello Cindy

There are online graphics programs or freeware programs that you can download and use to create your coupons. An internet search for online graphics programs will bring up a list of programs that you can try out to design your coupons.

Once you have designed your coupons, you will be able to add it to a PDF and upload the file to your site. You can then make use of the File Widget in Yola (see the post above), so that visitors can download the coupon and print it out.

I hope this helps! Let us know if you need any more help with this.

Hi Cindy

You can try Pixlr as it seems to be a popular tool and I have used it on occasion. If you are using Firefox as your browser, you can also install the add-on.

You can also download GIMP and install it on your computer (there is no online version at this time).

If you design your own coupon and upload it to your site, then it is copyrighted as yours. However, if you would like to put more stringent copyright measures in place, you can use a copyright licensing tool such as Creative Commons.

If you find that someone has copied your work, your best recourse would be to take legal action. You will be able to file a DCMA compliant notice against any business or individual and their website hosting company will be obliged to honor it.

Hope this is helpful information. Let us know if you have more questions or need more help.
