HTML widget keeps locking up, have to terminate browser in Task Manager. I've been trying to edit web pages on my site for the last 24 hours and continually have been having problems just trying to make small changes, never being able to make more comprehensive changes that I want to make. I cannot edit elsewhere and paste into the widget because it corrupts all my URLs whenever I do that.

right now I am tryting to edit the Information Sheet page, so that is what is currently causing a problem. The issue with corrupted URLs, that was on every page when I pasted the HTML into the widget

This little comment window doesn't like the pasted code, do you have a way to attach files? Otherwise, look at the Useful Links source that I just pasted. All the URLs are corrupted. You can email me at webmaster@troop259.com if you wish to contact me directly.

Please email support@yola.com and mark it for my attention. We can take it from there.

just had a question... are you using kontera advertising at all? If you do, you can't post anything underneath the kontera widget. It'll cause problems like you're describing.

You will be able to edit the page - all links work.
Text widgets are the best way to add links to your site. (if you need a tutorial for this there should be one here http://www.yola.com/tutorials.html

Good Luck - Lee.

So, you're saying to use the text widget instead of the html widget. Interesting, I assume it must resolve the html despite its name...I'll give it a shot.

The text editor has 2 personalities, 1 is for editing text, and the other is for editiing html. Once you click the little html button in the top menu you can add and edit the html -

Add the code above in the html ediitor then play with it in the text editor - its the best way -

You had the links open in another tab on 2 links, so i continued this on all of them, i also added title text, you can change this if you like.

This does seem to solve my lockup problem. Yola still has a problem if the html widget locks up, but this is a fine workaround. Thanks, and a computer merit badge to you.
