I have more than 200 pages so i would like to categorise them by creating sub-domains for my own domain.

For ex:
I have 20 language pages(english, italian, german etc) and i want to put them under the subdomain of "languages".

Now they seem like this:

www.turkceviri.com/italian (these are imaginary)

but i want them to be like that:

www.turkceviri.com/languages/german (imaginary)

I hope i was able to tell about my problem. I hope someone can help me asap.

Thanks in advance

Hello there Oktay,

Unfortunately you cannot have second level navigation with Yola.

You can avoid having too many pages in your main navigation by dividing your site up in to categories and creating sub-pages. Here is a quick overview on how to do this:

1. Create the pages you need. When you create the page untick the "show in navigation" box so that these pages won't be automatically added into your main navigation menu.

2. Now that you have your content, you need to link it all up. You can create the links using the text editor widget.
- drag a text widget onto your page and click to edit it.
- Type the text which you want to be the link to the sub-page.
- Highlight the text, and from the text editor tool bar, click the link button (10th from the left next to the image button).
- Click on the "..." button next to "page". It should give you a list of all the pages you have just created.
- Choose the relevant page and click "OK" and you will have a link to this page.

If you didn't untick the "show in navigation" box and would like to take them out of the navigation, simply click on "Edit Navigation" and drag-and-drop the pages you don't want in the navigation into the panel on the right hand side. Do the opposite to include them in the navigation again.

For detailed instructions and a working example, please click on the following link: Creating Subpages .

I hope this helps.

I hope you have rights to use that image on the home page ... regardless there is an even better solution ... create a blog page with the 20 different languages separate from your existing blog.

It does seem you have quite a few pages ... unless those are external links.

Good job though.

if you have the time to do, 'Yes , its possible!'

You need to create a complete site per language!(don't worry, just use the same template, and grab the orginal text, translate and put in new one)

then,go to your domain management panel(in Yola , Godaddy, Namecheam, etc) and setup some subdomains for each language.(if you have a free account, you need to assign just 5)

for an example, create subdomains,

All of them should point to Yola IP.(

then, go to your Yola account's domain management panel and assign above created subdomains for each 'Yola site' of each language.

What you need to do is create sub-pages. These are pages that
are out of your navigation, but visitors can still see them if you link to them
properly in your site-builder. Here is what you need to do:

1.Type text that you want your visitors to click on to see your sub-page
2. Highlight that text
3. Click "insert link" and under pages, choose your page you want you
visitors to see when they click your link
4. Click "okay" and there you have your sub-page

Hope this helps,

I wish that someday Yola will have an option to create more than one directories (Folders) That would be nice!
