HTML widget code / text missing on mobile viewing

I wasn't too happy with the limited ability to change text line spacing and bullets etc in the text widget. So I created what I needed in Word. nothing too fancy. Standard arial font etc and saved as Web Page Filtered to get the HTML code. I pasted this code onto my site using the HTML widget and it looks really nice on a pc / laptop.

However, when I view the pages with html widgets in them the text just isn't there.

the former middle section text is via an HTML widget and the latter just typed into the text widget on Yola.

Both work fine on hte PC but the former has all the middle section missing on the mobile.
Any ideas?

Hello openformula

The reason why your HTML Code Widgets don't display for Mobile Publishing is that they're not enabled for Mobile. This option is disabled for HTML Code Widgets by default, but you can easily enable your widgets for Mobile Publishing.

Just click on "Edit" on your HTML Code Widgets and tick the checkbox next to "Display in Mobile" at the bottom of the HTML Editor. Click on "Save". You'll need to do this for each HTML Code Widget. Once done, re-publish your website to make the changes become effective.

It's great that you didn't copy/paste from Word directly, but added the HTML source code of your text. However, I'd advise to use Text Widgets and our Style Designer to format text of your site the way you want it. Edits in the Style Designer will be applied sitewide, so you won't need to add the same formatting to each Text Widget again. Also, a sitewide consistent design can make your website look more professional. To open the Style Designer, click on the paint palette icon in the top right corner of any page in Sitebuilder view.

Thanks for the reply I will try that

I would prefer to use the text widget all the time as it is simpler for maintenance. However. When I use bullets or seperate sentences each point is either too close or two far apart if I leave a line space. In Word you can change the space between lines / bullets so that each point is easier to read rather than having a big clump of text.

I take it you can't do that in the text widget?

I get the point about keeping each page the same and I will do that once I am happy is the best way to format my pages.

Sorry, another question. I take it using HTML widgets doesn't affect how search engines access and rank the site?
Thanks for the quick response. I am alsways impressed by the customer service at YOla
