Hello Justin,

Every published post has it's own URL. You can use this to go to a specific post as a link from any page.

To display a specific post on another page, I have at least one suggestion but first may I ask if this specific blog post will be the same forever or is it more like the last post published?

Hi Justin,

The yola blog is driven by a separate engine which is why it's incorporated as a widget. You can't isolate one post from the rest except if you feed it into an RSS feed or similar. Yola do have this but it only feeds out the last XX posts and they drop off with new ones coming in. You can't select a specific post with the Yola RSS feed.

You can port the last posts to another place with the use of an RSS reader facility specially designed to plug-in to a web-page and display. The problem is that once again you can't call a specific post for your site to display from the Yola blog system and you can't call older posts.

Finally the Yola blogs are stored in a database but as users we don't have access to this. This could be a solution if it was accessible.

Sorry I don't have a solution.

I'll keep on it for a while in case something drops out of the sky.
