if you make a hyperlink with a word by using the "link" icon in the toolbar which appears when you edit a text box, and then click on "external link" and then type in the URL, if someone clicks on that word while holding control then it will open the link up in a new tab or browser therefore not closing or leaving your website.
This can also be done with a picture, by following the same steps but just hyperlinking the picture not the word

I just tried also and it isn't working on an image....But the option is there so it should be working and needs to be fixed.

Thanks for confirming that KTD. We were working on something in that area a few hours ago and hit the issue. good to see that it's reproducible as the report is easier to follow. http://forum.yola.com/yola/topics/una...

KTD, may I ask if you have tried the Onlie Store? I'm asking becuase I wonder how it would work with someone of your artistic vision and success with online retailing?

I have an account that I have done a mockup of a site and I won't be using it for commercial purposes. I wonder if you would like to play with it? As a beta trialer it is given to those for a period of six months. I am happy to give you the login details so you can build a test site and learn the ropes if you like. I also think that if you were able to manipulate it into the presentation that you want then that would be an extraordinary coup for Yola's online site as an experienced online Store builder and designer. Let me know and I can follow up on your contact page of your current site with the details of login.

Gop.

I have not tried the Online store...I e mailed Yola the first day the new Online Store Beta Test was offered. I asked to be a beta tester but never heard back. I was going to use on my new site that is up but I am not making money off of it just yet.

I think the one thing I was really interested in for an online store is not included....Other companies offer to collect your information in an inventory data base and from that create product uploads for you going directly to Google Products or shopping sites.(each will have certain parameters)

We can continue in e mail if you like...Can get e mail off my site.. I really do not like to post it in a public forum.

Google Product Search with Ecwid. Maybe something that will do it for you wrt to Google Products. I will make contact with you soon.

One aspect of Ecwid is that if you have ideas you can put them up for voting. When it gets to the top it's next on the list for development. If the aspect your proposing is important enough you can enter into a private development and they will quote you for such, and the cost can be shared with others if they also want to come onboard. I can't quite work out if it then belongs to you or if it goes into the library of apps. (Sure it's there but never investigated it.)

Hello Billy

I'm sorry that the open in a new window option is temporarily not working for the Picture Widget. We are right now working on fixing it, and I'd like to ask you for your further patience.
