Hi Yola Team,

I have upgraded to Yolapro with the intention of uploading some of my splash pages, "url=www.splashpage.com". I used file manager to upload this page as a file saved from my web browser into my hard drive. But it does not work. The second option I copied its html from the page source but the splashpage doesn't show images when pasted onto my site. How can I solve this problem?

Hi there,

It's not possible to upload already created pages to Yola - you will need to create pages by clicking on the "New Page" button.

If you're adding HTML and you would like the pictures to display, make sure you are following these pointers:
- upload the pictures to the File Manager by clicking on the File Manager button.
- the path to the pictures in the HTML should be:

resources/folder/file.jpg

Where:

"resources" is the name of the File Manager (you must not change that).
"folder" - if your file is in a folder, include the folder name.
"file.jpg" is the name of your file.

Please ensure that the path name is identical to the one in the File Manager in terms of upper and lower-case letters, dots, dashes etc.

I hope that helps!

Hi John,

You have a few options when trying to display your splash pages in Yola.

1. You could use an iFrame. iframes display live content from another web page, the code used is very simple:

<!--
<iframe src="http://splashpage.com/blog/?p=67" style="width: 100%; height: 1000px;"></iframe>
-->

2. You could copy the code as you mention above but to enable the images to display you will have to edit the code and add the full address for the source of the images. Kind of the opposite of what Marjie explains above. You will need to add http://splashpage.com/ to the address of the images so they can be reached.

3. Now your using Yola Pro you can upload html files (pages) and display them. You can not however upload php pages. If you are still having trouble displaying html files get back to me on this thread.

Lee.

Hi Marije and Lee,

Thank you for the feedback. However the problem remains unsolved.
1. Tried to upload onto a new webpage.
2. Marije explains as if i'm trying to upload a separate picture from my splashpage "http://www.sfi4.com/10218255/FREE". That's not the case. The picture disintegrate when i copy and paste as html.
3. Tried using Lee's method of iFrame code which i think is closed to what i want. Unfortunately i failed to master the steps.
4. I used html widget which looked like this <!--
<iframe src="http://www.sfi4.com/10218255/FREE" style="width: 100%; height: 1000px;"></iframe>
-->
5. Also tried step 2 above (Lee's response) but also failed

Please advise if i'm missing something.

You will need to remove the <!-- and the --> - Then the iframe will work.
