Hello Yaseenxx

Thank you for sharing with us what we can do to improve our site builder. I'm interested in learning more about what you mean by gaming layouts? Can you please share with us what you are envisioning for this?

Also, I have found one great way of customizing my layout is to actually use the 1 column layout. Then, utilizing the two-column widget (aka column divider) and the text widget box as horizontal spaces, you can get quite a customized layout. You can also drag a two-column widget inside a two-column widget which would give you more columns. By dragging the middle bar, you can adjust the width of these columns.

I hope this workaround helps until we are able to implement more customizable features.

Using a minimal theme like CleanSlate or NoFrills you can create just about any layout you want with good html coding and a bit of css. If you learn these too coding languages you will see that there's alot more you can do with Yola than you think.

Allowing us to upload layouts would not be viable as our layouts would be incompatiable with the Yola framework, the sitebuilder wouldn't know where it's boundaries are with widgets, and how would Yola insure that the footer link stays intact.

Weebly does it. They allow you to upload your own templates and still keep the Weebly footer at the bottom. I really like Yola, but I am in school for web design and I'm learning how to make my own templates. I would really like to use one. What Yaseenxx is referring to about gaming layouts is video games. My site is a game site and I understand where he/she is coming from. I realize this thread is like a year old, but thing don't seem to have chanced much concerning this request, so I just though I'd through my thought on it in here.

Yola is geared towards small business and not gaming or social networks....It is also a site builder first targeting those that do not know or wish to learn html......That does not mean they will not expand into other areas such as making their service gaming or social site friendly....People with the skill to make the large gaming or social sites really have no need for services like Yola or Weebly....That isn't a knock on either service it is just that you are comparing apples and oranges......If you are going to school for this chances are you will end up doing ALL your own coding and use a hosting service that lets you start with a blank slate.
