Hello Man-in-shed

By default the author name of your post is the name you used when you created your account. You can edit this by clicking on the "Profile" link on your "My Yola" page (the page you see when you first log into your account). Any new posts you create after changing your account information should reflect your new name. However, you first need to log out and then log back in again before new posts start to appear under your new name.

If you don't want to edit the name on your Yola account, or if you want to update your name on existing posts you can edit it as follows:
  1. Double click on the title of the post.

  2. In the post editor dialog box, click on the "Advanced" tab.

  3. You can now manually edit the name for your post.

  4. Click OK to save the change.
