Hello,
It's not possible to upload a site/blog built elsewhere into your Yola Sitebuilder. However, if you would like visitors to your site to bet to you blog, I would say that the best thing to do would be to add a text or image link on your site which goes to your blog on blogger.com, or make one of your navigation buttons link to it. I can give you instructions for both.

Creating Links

Menu tab redirect.

I hope this helps!

Hi Amanda Baker,

To further Emmy's point, you could also try adding a page re-direct. You could create a new page called Blog, add it to your Navigation. Then follow these steps:

1. Insert a HTML Widget into your page.
2. Open Notepad (or a similar text editing program - not a Rich Text Format one though, like Microsoft Word because that could corrupt your page if you copied code from there into a HTML Widget).
3. Paste the following code into Notepad (without the <!--- and --->)
<!---

<meta HTTP-EQUIV="REFRESH" content="0; url=http://www.yourdomain.com/index.html">

--->

4. Edit the variables. I shall break them down for you here...

<!--- <meta HTTP-EQUIV="REFRESH"> ---> This tells the browser to re-direct the page, do not edit this.

<!--- content="0; ---> This is the amount of time (in seconds) before the browser re-directs. You should set this value to about 10 so that you have chance to edit the page whilst it is in the Sitebuilder, because once you have added the code, it will re-direct the page within the Sitebuilder. Everytime you edit the page with this code on, delete this widget first and re-apply the code afterwards, or whilst editing, change the value to about 1000.

You should also apply a nice message stating that the page is re-directing and provide a link if the re-direct fails.

urll=http://www.yourdomain.com/index.html"> This is the URL you would like the page to re-direct to.

Hope you can understand all of this, and I also hope it helps you.
