I'm sorry because I have said some mean or wrong things. I tend to do things my own way and when its the reason for errors I get frustrated. I'm just trying to work on something and it appears its tougher than I want it to be. I apologize for saying things that others might disagree with or consider mean. Yola's employees and users have actually helped me quite a bit, especially Papa, littleus, monique, connor, and others!

Your apologies are accepted Donald. Thanks for that!

I know that your site is important to you and you have a particular vision that you want to achieve. I am confident that you will be able to see a successful outcome. However, as mentioned before, cutting & pasting from MS Word should not be done.

I really believe that we can still achieve the same or similar look but done through Yola tools or through HTML coding. Once you get the hang of it, I'm sure that you find your site working much better and more smoothly.

We are willing to help you but our hands are tied if you continue to use MS Word formatting in your site.

I would encourage you to try other means of creating the look you want.

Perhaps as a trial run, you could save one of your smaller pages and do a save page as. Then, strip your codes of any MS Word formatting by copying and pasting into Notepad. Then, we can help you create the look you want via other means. I think you will be pleased with the end results.

yes, I agree... but aside from website creating... how would you say my site "looks" and "functions" although I did copy and paste from MS Word?

Currently, it looks fine published. However, problems may pop up later. This is the risk you take.

You have posted numerous topics whereby the root of these issues are due to MS Word formatting. This is a clear indication that MS Word formatting should be dropped.

I want your site building experience to be a pleasurable one, not one of frustration. I again urge you to find alternative means to create your site instead of MS Word.

Hey Donald.
Brave ,correct and smart I must say.Cause those who have tried other builders(like me) know Yola is the best and even those who haven't tried other builders know this because they never had to look for other builders after coming to Yola.Even you know that and have made the right discussion to return.
One advice:-"Don't get angry on small issues"
Donald good to know that you are back.Welcome back friend.Let's celebrate by making our sites even better

I get frustrated too Donald and want everything to work right "yesterday". I came back and started using Yola again after trying a couple of other hosts. I am further along on my website then ever before now. It seems like a lot of things go wrong along the way but there is always a way to fix it, eventually.

By the way, I always use Notepad, the little program that comes with Windows. There is Wordpad, but I learned Notepad is the very best. Seems the "simplist" text editor is the very best in the case of uploaded to the web;)

See you 'round the forums, denise

@Denise - Wordpad saves the text automatically as a rich formatting text, which is why it doesn't work well in the site builder. People can still use WordPad if they choose, but they must save their text as a .txt file first. Then they need to open the .txt file and from there proceed with the copying and pasting. This creates an extra step whereas in Notepad, you don't have to save your text at all. You can just simply paste in Notepad and then copy and the formatting will be stripped.

Just wanted to share this piece of information. =)
