I'm done with your retarded website, because the websites can't even be created good without paying for it. You make us put retarded stuff on the damn thing just because we aren't using Silver. It's ridiculous. I'm done.

I know that there's been a lot of people do some amazing things on Yola without having Silver. What sort of thing are you trying to do that you think requires Silver? There's often back door options available. Such as the use of javascript files. Yola doesn't host javascript files for free, but external javascript files can be used on Yola. As one example.

Yola is not "retarded". What do you mean by Yola makes us put retarded stuff on a website because you don't have Silver? You get all of the same widgets with Silver, so I don't see what the problem is. Can you please let us know what you think is "retarded"?

I used to have Free, and I could still make an awesome website with it without Silver. Yola Silver makes it better for you by giving you more options and tools. That doesn't mean Yola makes anyone put retarded stuff on there, though.

If you want custom CSS, you can do this with Yola Free also, just you have to add it to each page in an HTML widget which is still not as bad. Yola is providing a 100% free service that actually costs them to run, so why call them retarded?

I am very happy with Yola. It is much better than all of the others out there. I hope you can share with us what the problem is.

Kind regards,
Nathan

Hello Cakey,

I am sorry you feel this way about Yola. However I do agree with Nathan and Donald that if you can elaborate on your problem we can assist you with it.

If you need any assistance with your site, please let us know.

I wonder if cakey is referring to the style templates. I find many of the free styles very outdated and would like to see more styles with a more modern feel, particularly with a vertical menu. Even the premium styles all seem to have horizontal menus. I have too many categories to use a horizontal menu, and visitors to my site find it more convenient to use a vertical menu as I have quite a lot of categories.

I would desperately like to update my website, but I'm stuck with an old-fashioned template. I'm also reluctant to start a new site with Yola simply because of the lack of decent styles. It's a shame because I love the site builder as it's the easiest to use and I can't get on with any of the others out there.

Hi Mark N,

You're probably right.

About you being stuck with the current template you have, you know you can change it, right?

Hi Nathan. Yes, but there are no decent templates (with a vertical menu) to update to!

Hi Mark & Nathan,

Thanks for your feedback! We realize that our users are wanting to see more styles. Over the past several months, we've been hard at work to try and introduce more styles to our Style library. Just recently, as you may have noticed, we added 10 new styles for our users to enjoy and customize! We are close to releasing another batch of styles as well!

While, we would love to be able to add more "free" styles - realistically, this really isn't feasible. The "free" styles we do offer is to give our users an idea of what is available and allow them to create a good-looking site. However, we believe that by upgrading to Silver, this really is best way to get access to all styles and really open doors for you to make your site stand out. It also helps us in terms of building revenue as every style we put out, it takes a lot of time, money and effort invested. In order for us to sustain our product, we need to find ways of enabling us to receive monetary gains in order to do so.

We hope you can understand our position on this and be able to enjoy the various styles we do have.
