Hello Teena,

I have taken a look at the source code of your website, and I think the reason you are seeing that error is because some of the content on your site has been copied and pasted from MS Word.

When you copy and paste rich text directly from MS Word (or another word processor) onto your site, this brings along formatting that is not web friendly and can easily break your page and can also cause your site to show up inconsistently in different browsers. The problem might not always show up immediately, but sometimes it happens after you save and navigate to a different page or log out and log in again.

To avoid display and loading issues, which can also include error messages like the ones you are seeing on your page, the best alternative is first to paste your text into NotePad (in the accessories folder of your computer) and then paste it as plain text onto your Yola page. You can then use the Yola text editor to format and spell check your text and strip out MS Word code. It will generate valid markup which you can safely paste into the Yola Sitebuilder.

This incompatibility with rich text would be the case with any browser-based text editor you might use, not just Yola. It is a universal website building problem. It's also always a good idea to keep a copy of your text in a .txt file from Notepad so that you have a backup copy kept on your PC. The solution in this case is to delete the existing text and then re-add it to your page following the steps above.

I hope this is helpful and helps fix the error message.

Thank you! I will. I do have one question....do I need to DO anything in notepad to clean it up or does it automatically happen just by pasting it in notepad? Does my question make sense? lol

Also, does Yola's editor have a way to wrap text around a picture?? I can't seem to figure it out!

Hello Teena,
Yep, there's a way to do this: Text wrapping.

Hope this helps!

Kind Regards,

Hi Teena,
Sorry, missed your other question. If you put it into Notepad and have Notepad set to "Plain Text" it will automatically strip any unwanted formatting code.
