I am trying to figure out how to make my website interactive to where I have a login for members and they can have their own page to add photos. Is this possible through Yola?

Here is my website: www.hiddensandiego.net

Hello jdjdjlmj,

You could password protect a page on your site with a single username and password which would help create a sense of security. From that page you could have links to individual member pages. To password protect a page, click Page, click Page Manager and then click the Lock icon and a window will come up asking you for a password.

Or the members could have individual pages where only they know what their url is. There URL could be their firstnamelastname.php or something similar. Clicking the green check mark on the same window in the Page Manager screen will prevent the individual member pages from showing up on the menu on your site.

Hello,

Crystal has provided some good information. I just wanted to add that only you can add content to the site as this needs to be done directly through the Sitebuilder. Visitors are unable to do this from the published site. Here are some possible workarounds:

1. You can use a form application such as Wufoo, that allows your visitors to send you a message with an attachment via your website. Here's how to set it up.

2. The other option is to put an email link on your site: Link to an email address. When visitors click a link their email program will open a new message and allow then to attach the file.

3. You can also take a look at this answer on our forum: Uploading files for more information.

Yola is good for many things but unfortunately interactive member based site isn't really a focus. If you want to switch to a social network builder to accomplish this maybe try wall.fm if that doesn't float your boat google around for some other services. If you want to do a form workaround like Sanja suggested do not use wufoo whatever you do. Personally I recommend Jotform as it has any feature you could want and amazing support. Hope this helps :)
