Hello Naruto,
At this time Yola does not have a members only feature, you might want to look into something like Google Friend Connect, possibly this will help.

It's also not possible to have people upload things to your site as everything that gets added to the site needs to be added from inside the Site Builder. You could always have people email you things and you could them on the site.

I hope this helps!

Still waiting......now that we are paying for pro it would be a great idea to add membership databases.... I mean at least let us upload our own databases.. saves you guys time doing it yourself. maybe have interologies free profile manage incorporate with this site. and maybe make some money from it. Yola it really isnt that hard. There are plenty of alternatives then yola actually doing themselves. Use a thrid party, agian Interology (jotform) profile manager. its easily customizable. its free, what more do you want. All you have to di is allow us to add it to site.

Allowing users to upload there own databases, would be something too complicated for Yola's target audience and this would go against what Yola's mission is. Just because you are able to create and edit databases, dosen't mean everyone can, therefore it wouldn't be viable for Yola to release something like this.

Minimia,

It is very unlikely for this to be added to Yola.

It really depends what kind of membership you will offer, Yola can't make every single type of membership type there is, For example a user starts a book store and wants users to be able to pay online and have a panel for shipping/payments etc, Yola isn't responsible for making a custom membership script for that.

However I'm sure they can add something universal that is configurable.

Also, One thing that can have membership is forums. (I believe some users have already integrated forums into their site.

To add onto this, this is how I think it should work:
-We get the option of creating a new page for accounts. When the page is created, the registration/profile/membership begins to work on the site.

-On the page, if you are not logged in, it shows a login form and a registration form. If you are logged in, it shows your profile (Avatar, username, email, interests, the little stuff) and allows you to change them.

-Make 3 settings for each page on the site: Public, Password Protected, or Account Required, the latter requiring someone to login to view the page. If they are not logged in and they try to access the page, it will redirect them to the page noted in the bullet above this one.

-Throughout the site, if you're logged in, the top-right corner will have "[insert username here] | Log Out | Profile". Log Out will refresh the page, but you will be logged out, and Profile will redirect you to the page noted 2 bullets above. If you're not logged in, "Log In/Register" will appear instead, and it'll be one link that redirects to the page noted 2 bullets above.

These are just my ideas. :P

I got try that before, but you need a automatic form type your user and password will bring you to the link. ( But don't bring it to the homepage link. ) Make another page, logged in. If you don't make, your customers will know you used that tricky trick.

Like many folk, I'm building a pay-per-subscription site under Yola - in my case linked to a PayPal subscription storefront. I need some reliable way to control my paying members, once I grant them posting access to the forums and blogs.

Nabble offers a wonderful forum feature and, like Yola, its support is awesome. However, Nabble does not reveal - even to the site administrator - a member's email address linked to their user name. Capturing their email and username via eg. a Wufoo form works only at the start. As soon as a member has access to a Nabble forum they can change their user name and email and become invisible.

So if they lapse their subscription, the administrator cannot remove them - because s/he cannot find them! Result... they get a free ride forever.

Solution: a front-end subscription area within Yola itself would avoid this problem. We do need a way for Yola administrators to assign a separate access password to every new user - and control this data. (Giving everyone the same password to a password-protected area simply allows a subscriber to pay once, lapse their subscription then get a free ride on the site forever using this password.)

Is Yola any further in developing a per-subscriber password utility?

Hi Nigel - thank you for your post on this thread. We're not planning to release this feature in the near future, we are aware this is an often-requested feature and it is something that we would like to plan for.

I'm sorry I can't give you any bright news for your request.

A membership for our website would be great! I know that webs.com already has that feature. But I don't like webs.com for some reason. I like yola better. It is just better and I am used to it! I have been using it for about a year now! Please visit my website @ www.nathansmusicstudio.yolasite.com Thank you!

Maybe yola could ask www.webs.com how they got there website builder to allow us to have memberships on our website. I don't know how webs.com did it, but yola should do that too! I hope they do!

Hey guys and girls, I've tried a lot of website builders and one of them was called Spruz. They have a membership app on there. They also use Skysa Bar, I use it on my Yola website and it works great. Spruz is a Social Network builder that is all free, but about the bar, is that it has different apps that you can add on to it like Friends Online IM so if that's something you want on your website it's at skysa.com so you can check it out, and I do reccomend it it, but it doesn't have a Member app.

here is a idea why not allow us to split our website to different sections!

Yes, it is very easy in Yola - using its Save As utility - to copy a page in every detail as a 'mirror'. You can then build a multiplicity of 'sites within sites', each identical except for some key feature. For example, some pages can be password-protected, some made open to the visiting public.

A site published under a single domain name could thus become a labyrinth of endless mini-sites, each angled to some purpose.

This feature is especially useful if, for example, you need to track a visitor path from a certain source eg. an ezine or forum posting elsewhere. The visitor can hit on a landing page dedicated to that source then follow their 'own' route through the labyrinth, each page being angled just to that source and to them.

Result: more conversions to sale, plus impeccable tracking.

Where is the save as utility located and is that the same thing as sub domains? I still don't get how sub domains work.

If you're on a page in the Sitebuilder, click on the down-arrow next to "Save" to see the "Save As" option. All it will do is save a copy of the page in your site with another name (sometimes good if you want a range of pages to have the same content without redoing it).

A subdomain is an address for your site. For example, www.yoursite.com is a custom domain; www.yoursite.yolasite.com is a subdomain. If you buy your own domain, you can create subdomains with that domain eg. www.art.yoursite.com.

I hope that helps!

I made some sub domains for my domain. My domain that I have in the site builder is: http://www.nathansmusicstudio.cz.cc The sub domains I have made for this domain are:

Blog: http://blog.nathansmusicstudio.c.zcc
Status Blog: http://status.nathansmusicstudio.cz.cc
E-mail: http://mail.nathansmusicstudio.cz.cc
Documents: http://docs.nathansmusicstudio.cz.cc
Sites: http://sites.nathansmusicstudio.cz.cc
Calendar: http://calendar.nathansmusicstudio.cz.cc
And more!
These are actually like sub-subdomains!
I got my free domain from http://www.nic.cz.cc
Then, I created CNAME records to make all of the sub domains.
I got my Blogs from Blogger and I pointed http://status.nathansmusicstudio.cz.cc and http://blog.nathansmusicstudio.cz.cc to the thing I'm suppose to point them to.

Thanks for the answer! One more question, I tried making a sub domain but how do I make that show up on my original site and would that be for something like a video site of something?

I think I'm finally getting what you are doing. You have to set up a sub domain at your hosting account and then add it to Yola. Is that right?

Well, http://www.nic.cz.cc isn't my hosting account, it is my domain provider. Then, I made an A record to point my domain to yola and I have it in the site builder now. So if anyone goes to http://www.nathansmusicstudio.yolasit..., it automatically goes to http://www.nathansmusicstudio.cz.cc!

Correct - you would need to setup the subdomains with your domain host and point them to Yola in the same way you did with your custom domain (using A Records). This link has the normal steps on pointing a domain to Yola: http://www.yola.com/customer-support/...

Any closer to setting up site memberships? I'm outsourcing membership elsewhere for now, but it would be tidier to have it as an inbuilt part of my own site. Mick

Hey guys, we have membership on our Yola site! (Actual membership, with separate logins, and members!) You can see how we've got it set up, If you'd like to see it and test it out, visit this link, and use the

Password: Test

Username: Test

(You can also sign up and get your own! If you want to sign up, go to that link above and click the sign up link!)

(Yola, if this is a spam reply, please let me know and I will delete it. I hope it's not. I don't want to break any terms of use! I am just saying this because last time, I put a link on this forum and an employee said it is spammy, but I'm not mad, I just don't want it to happen again!)

We got this from www.AuthPro.com. It includes the Database management, (Well, its not a spread sheet, it is a user list where you can suspend or delete users, etc.) Also, you can put the logout link, the edit profile link, the delete account link, the welcome message (Such as: Welcome, {username}" or something but you can customize what it says and much more! This would be goood for all the Yola users that want Membership! Maybe someday Yola could team up with them and they could set it up. (The Deluxe is only $4/mo and the Free is free! Deluxe has an unlimited number of members and you can put the login forms right in your site when you have deluxe)

Replying to Nathan, AuthPro does seem to work. Problem is, I have now outsourced my site to Yola, my forums to Nabble and my password protection to AuthPro. If any one member of this troika goes belly up, I'm dead. And I have a large commercial site at threat!

Mischievous memo to Yola: I'd much rather put all my eggs in your basket. Your support is fabulous. How about a joint venture with AuthPro (or even Nabble)?

Yeah, AuthPro does work. Please login to my site and use the password: Test and the username (login): Test and test it out, if you go to the homepage, it will say "Logged in as {your username} [Member's Area] [Logout]" at the top under our logo. Also, it says that in all the member's pages. But Yola could team up with Authpro and get membership in our websites and then have us log into AuthPro and that is where you can manage all the members (The "Database") and you can change the settings, add little codes in like "Welcome, {username}" and add like "Edit Profile" links and "Logout" links and much more! Just wanted to let you know and let Yola know a little more about AuthPro.

Hi, I just suspended the Test account because I do not want everyone in this forum to get into my website's members pages without having a account!
