Minor Change to Site Creation Steps

Hi Everyone

Those of you who are used to the process of creating a new site with Yola might notice a minor change next time you do this!

In the past you would:

1) Name your site
2) Select a web or blogpage
3) Select your style and color

From now on you will

1) Select your style and color
2) Name your site
3) Select a web or blogpage
4) Have the OPTION to publish your site right away, or continue straight on to building your site.

This change has been made in response to feedback that people would like the opportunity to reserve their domain name at the beginning of the site creation process. A lot of new users also don't realize that you need to publish your site in order to secure a web address. We are hoping that this minor change will assist with this, without causing any major disruption to those of you who are used to the old approach.

Just remember, it is your choice whether you want to secure your domain name right away, or at any stage in the site creation process!

I have passed on this feature request. However, I need to let you know that there are other big features in the works that have a higher demand and are therefore likely to get delivered first. The option to preview without saving would be useful and if we see that more people are requesting this we can try to implement this. The other thing we would like to do is to give you the ability to revert to an older version of your site if you make a change and decide that you don't like it. I think this will also help.
