Jane, I also just noticed that all your conetnt is on 1 page - you can make as many pages as you like with Yola , spread it out over 10 or so pages.- there will be a tutorial here somewhere. I have over 100 pages on my Yola site http://hexham.info . Lee.

Hi Jane - your pictures load slow for me too. Do they have a really large file size? If so, we recommend that you reduce their size so that they are optimized for web pages.

You can reduce their size on your computer or on Yola by editing them in Picnik. This link has more info on how to do that: http://www.yola.com/customer-support/.... This tutorial also helps to explain why smaller sized images are better: http://www.yola.com/tutorials/creatin...

Once that's done, you should notice a definite improvement in your site loading. (Remember to click on "Update my Site" so that your live website is updated).
