Is there a problem with Yola at the moment? I can't upload image files to my site and the widget/properties side bar only displays the info for the Page not for any of the widgets within the page - not enabling me to edit widget properties

Hi, EricM,

We are not currently experiencing any server issues. We have recently made some changes for editing your margins. The ability to edit your margins are no longer available through the "Properties" tab. It is also no longer possible to set individual margins for each side.

Instead, you can adjust the margin padding equally for all sides. To do this, please follow these easy steps:

1. For the Text Widget you wish to adjust the margins, click on the "Properties" link in the upper left-hand corner of your widget.
2. Drag the slider bar across to the desired margin padding you wish to have.
3. Click on "Save".

Please let me know if you have any trouble with this.

IMHO this is not an improvement. The facility to set asymmetric margins (particularly at the top and bottom) within the widget properties sidebar was VERY USEFUL !

I'm three quarters of the way through building my site and now I've been deprived of a key tool. Trying to get good balanced (not always symmetrical) spacing around images is pretty difficult - going to be almost impossible now.

I can't be the only person who dislikes this change

Hi Eric, Yes they have stuffed Yola with the loss of being able to control all 4 margins.
I am very very upset, all my hundreds of hours work wasted and my online business gone !
I truely feel they have cheapened and ruined yola by removing the ability to edit the 4 margins.
PLEASE PLEASE YOLA Re install the ability to edit the 4 margins as was available through the "Properties"

It is very unfair what Yola have done, as they will be others who have invested in the Yola website who will need to be able to accurately set margins on all 4 sides, as was previously available.

How will anyone replicate what they have done previously?

Again I ask why Yola have you done this please?

Hi, EricM and Div Boyes,

We appreciate your feedback and will be certain to communicate your frustration about this change in functionality to our Product team.

It is possible to work with the margins on all four sides by using the HTML button on the Text Widget's editing tool bar (the blue rectangle marked HTML on the far right side of the toolbar) Click on that button and add the following code:

<!-- <p style="margin: 150px 35px 0px 200px;">Text</p> -->

The first number is the top margin, then the right margin, the bottom margin and the left margin. You can adjust the numbers as needed.

Be sure to remove the <!-- and --> as that is there to stop the forum from rendering the code.

Please let us know if you have further questions.

Why is not unable anymore the editing margins of text and images on Yola? This is so sad. I will cancel my site if I can edit my site the way I wanted to be. Bye.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled
Goodbye Yola..

Its a workaround - but its still cumbersome and a retrograde step. Also I don't think I can do this with the margins around images can I? Your method will only work with text widgets -image widgets don't have the html button do they?

Yola is the best site builder. I tasted lots and lots of site builders and I fell helplessly in love with Yola. Yola has been for me anytime when I need help, I will stand up and support the Yola new change and margin options even if that doesn't help me to my site and the style and design.

Hi All

Please see my response on this thread: http://forum.yola.com/yola/topics/yol...

I know it feels awful when a feature you were fond of isn't available, but please keep sending your feedback and give us an opportunity to respond. All we are interested in is the success and happiness of our customers, and if a change we make doesn't work out, we can always adjust.

There may be a temporary inconvenience while we figure this out, but we will do all we can to make sure that it does not result in anything nearly as dire as the ruin of Yola or anyone's sites!
