I am trying to edit the HTML Code on my webiste. I have copied an embed HTML Code from Picasa web album. It was fine untill the past 3 weeks, after which i tried editing the code but the program becomes non-responsive and I have to do an abrupt end to IE.

I have tried this with a lot of different computers and different locations, i get the same problem everywhere.

Please help.

Hi Jubin

Could you do a couple of things:
1) Post the link to your site here, so we can take a look.
2) Try editing your site in a different browser, like Firefox, to see if that makes any difference. Don't use Google Chrome, as it is not a supported browser for Yola.

I will try using firefox later on tonight. Meanwhile, if you do have any suggestions, please do let me know.

Thanking you in advance.

John you may need to delete all the Picasa codes on your page and then update your site then start over again fresh with what I shared below...

If you remove the bad code from your sites and edit the code like I described in a Wordpad or Notepad you will hopefully not run into the same problem. I described below how to edit your Picasa code safely...

Hi Jubin

Sorry that you are experiencing such luck with Picasa. I used them when I first started site building but found the Flicker light box widget to be better, more reliable and professional in the end.

Quite possibly the problem you have could be one of several reasons:
1) Not ALL of your Picasa code was copied and pasted into your HTML widget (this could cause unresponsiveness and a slow site builder load time)
2) Another code on your website page is interacting with your Picasa code and thereby fouling up the system (This I find unlikely because I have had it on pages with all sorts of and many codes and never had a conflict. I cannot say for sure that it can never happen though ;)
3) Your editing of the Picasa code to open it up in a pop-up has broken it and thereby affected others on your page (More likely than others)

I realize that you have used Picasa for some time but I added a little tutorial below for those who do not know how to use their Picasa account with YOLA.:

If you are trying to add a Picasa slideshow to your website follow these directions:

1) Sign into your Picasa account
2) Click the "My Photos" Tab
3) On the right side of the screen in the middle click on the "Embed Slideshow" link
3) In the pop-up select from small to extra large
4) Right click once in the yellow text box and click "Copy"
5) Drag an HTML widget onto your page and paste the copied code inside of it
6) Click "OK"

If you are trying to add one gallery at a time follow these directions:

1) Sign into your Picasa account
2) Click the "My Photos" Tab
3) Click on the gallery you want to have shown on your site
4) On the right side of the screen click the "Link to this album" link
5) In the "Paste HTML to embed in website" code box highlight, right click and copy ALL the code.
6) Drag an HTML widget onto your page and paste the copied code inside of it
7) Click "OK"

As you are a professional; and wish to show off you fine photography in a way that does not take your visitors away from your website why not instead use the Flickr Lightbox YOLA provides as a widget in their site builder.

You can in fact set up many email accounts with Yahoo and have your finest images in separate Flickr accounts thereby showing more than 30 images at a time (Lightbox limit). Perhaps have a new page for each album.

To allow for your visitor to see the larger images beyond the lightbox 500x375 or so pixels maximum I recommend that you name all of your images with "Click here to see this image larger" before each image number or name.

Click here to see this image larger 1
Click here to see this image larger 2
Click here to see this image larger 3
and so on...

This make it so that if your visitor want to see that image larger they can enter your Flickr account and see the original sized images.

Gotta run but wish you luck...

Happy site building
Ed

P.S. If you still feel the need to edit the Picasa code to open it up in a new tab please follow the directions bellow:

1) Open your Wordpad or Notepade text editor
2) Paste the copied code from Picasa into a blank Wordpad or Note pad document
3) Locate the 2(two) places within the code that you find "?feat=embedwebsite" and add (target=_blank") right before the "?"

?feat=embedwebsite

TO

"target=_blank"?feat=embedwebsite

4) Highlight and copy ALL the code and paste into a HTML widget
5) Press "OK"

That will allow you to edit the code and not have it become a great big error on you...

Good luck with whichever you choose...
