I have a blog on my website at www.britsal.net and would dearly love to be able to update it during forthcoming travels from my iphone. Is this possible?
Thank you.

Hello Sal

I'm afraid that it isn't. Yola Sitebuilder is not suitable to use on iPhones and tablet computers yet. It would require a lot of developmental work to make this possible. For detailed information from one of our engineers, please read Pete's post: Yola on the iPad.

Thank you for your quick response. Its very sad that Yola doesnt have an iphone or ipad app. Tablets do seem to be the way forward these days.

Hello Sal,

The Yola blog worries me very much. It's lack of functionality plus the announcements that if anything goes wrong with the system or issues arise they won't be fixed. We are really out on a limb on this one.

One solution I am considering is adding another page and adding the tumblr blog to this. My first entry will be that any posts earlier than such and such a date can be found here (add a link to your existing Yola blog page)

As the last entry on the Yola blog page place a post that all new posts from such and such a date will be found here (and place a link to your new tumblr at that point).

We can't migrate any old posts with Yola's support but biting the bullet may be the way to go. tumblr is certainly easier to post to and can be posted to from mobile phones, by email etc and this is a definite plus.

Users can also schedule and back-date posts if they wish.

I did sign up with Tumblr, but it's all so totally different to the Yola blog...am not sure I can get my head around it. A blog can sometimes be an integral part of a personal website, and I am heartbroken that Yola seems to be abandoning this feature. Your idea is a good one, but I do feel that through the years I have been with Yola we are asked to pay more and more, yet have yet more features removed. Thank you for getting back to me Gop. Your idea is a good one...but I do feel we pay enough for Yola, and Yola should be providing a better blogging service.
BTW, I am not a complainer. I have always spoken very highly about Yola, and even recommended it to friends, and my brother, who have set up business and personal sites. I should think maybe a dozen new accounts have been set up with Yola on my recommendation. It seems those us who like to run a personal site are being abandoned after years of loyalty.
Sal.
