If you need support from Yola please contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org or make use of our live chat service! We are working on a new approach to community-based support and during this transition period we are not adding any new threads to this forum. Many thanks to everyone who has participated over the years and we look forward to unveiling a new peer-to-peer support system soon!
Yola does not offer database functionality.
I would suggest using a form a achieve this. Your "private message" will then be saved in your chosen forms account or it can get emailed to you.
To put a form on your site click on the "Advanced" folder on the Widgets Sidebar at the right-hand side of the screen. We have integrated with Wufoo and Form Assembly. Both services offer free and paid plans, so you can select the one that is right for you.
These are the steps for adding a form:
1. When you drop a form widget on your page, a dialog box will open up. Click on the link in the bottom right hand corner and you will be taken to the form service.
2. Sign up for an account and create your form.
3. When you are done click "Get Code."
4. Copy the HTML code (use Ctrl-C or highlight with cursor > right-click > copy) and paste it into the Yola dialog box that opened when you dropped the widget (use Ctrl-V or right-click > paste to paste the code)
That's it, you will have your own custom form on your site and your responses will be managed in your Wufoo or Form Assembly account.
You can edit your settings on Wufoo or Form Assembly so that the information completed on your form is emailed to you, or you can visit your account to get the information on any forms completed.
Be sure to include links on your site at relevant points that will take your visitors to your contact form page (we have a link editor that allows you to do this). You can then either reply to them personally or post their comments directly onto your site.
