I just noticed the "About Yola" in the "Get Help" menu

I never noticed that you can see the version of the Yola website builder! Currently it is Version 2.2.6 and lots of 20482 builds! Does the 'builds' mean how much times the engineers have edited the site builder?

Hi Nathan,

I'll try to get an engineer to explain the build process for you as I'm sure they'll do a better job than me!

Hi Nathan,

The version number itself doesn't change often, as a new version of the sitebuilder implies quite a radical update in its functionality or look. You might remember this announcement about a year ago - that was quite a major new version.

However, you are mostly right about the build number. We are constantly building and rebuilding our software, especially after making changes, in order to run it through various test suites and test environments. The number above is a good indicator of how many times we've made these changes (or made sets of changes) to our source code - keep an eye on it after one of our releases and see how much it goes up by!

I hope this helps,
-Jonathan

Thanks Jonathan! Yeah, I remember that announcement. It was awesome to see it. At first I didn't know where everything is because it was all moved around but I got used to it. Now I like the new one a lot better than the old one!

Anyways, thanks for letting me know this info.

Was the recent release with CSS editing a new version of the site builder? Or was that just counted as a build?

Thanks,
Nathan
