I am very impressed with the ease of use of the Yola site builder, however disappointed with the choice of premium styles now i have upgraded to Yola Silver. They are mostly the same design but with different backgrounds and banner images and i think only one with side navigation!!

I'm after a style with side bar navigation and with sub pages, however, the style i prefer is in the free choice, and doesn't support sub pages. Any suggestions please? Thanks

Hello Steve

I'm sorry that our choice of Styles doesn't quite seem to meet your needs. We are currently discussing improvements on the Styles, but I cannot promise you anything yet.

What I can suggest to you is: Become your own Style designer!
It is not as convenient as choosing a Style template that you edit using the Page Manager, but if you want, you can actually create your own Style using one of the Free Basic Styles, such as Clean Slate, Squeaky Clean, No Frills, etc. To get a nearly blank Style, you can delete the Page Heading and take all pages out of the navigation, including the index (home) page. If you know a little about HTML and CSS, you can edit your Site CSS to remove margins, paddings, and lines, and add your custom settings.

Once done, you can use the Custom Panel Widget to create your absolutely individual Style. You can change the background by adding a different colour or background image. You can add images as a banner using the Picture Widget. You will just need to create a custom navigation and link manually.

I know it's a lot of work to create a Style on your own from scratch, but it can be really fun to design. If you need any assistance with this, please let us know.
