Hello Marcia,

May I ask if your site is new and also if it's on a new account?

Yola have only recently withdrawn the blog facility from new accounts and wondering if this is somehow related.

I would also try to clear your browser cache as maybe it's simply a caching issue.

Hello Marcia

I have checked your Yola account, and I noticed that you use a lot of images with a file size of 1.5 to more than 3MB. This will cause your site to load slowly both in the SItebuilder and live on the internet. To solve this you will need to downsize your images. Yola recommends an image file size of 20-100KB per page.

Although Yola has discontiued supporting the Blog Feature, you should still be able to work with it in your Sitebuilder. I was able to do so in your account, but loading your blog page in the Sitebuilder took me 3 minutes which is due to the large image files you posted in your blog posts.

Please clear cache and cookies of your browser, and downsize your pictures with an Image Editing tool before you upload them to your Yola website.
