Hello WB,

A number of people have added games to their sites so first of all that is reassuring.

The second aspect is that you would need to have access to the games to put them on your site:

This can be done basically in one of two ways:
  1. Embedding the game on your site. This would be a fairly detailed computer program that you would need to upload into your File Manager. The you would add the specific code that talks to this program so that it would run

  2. Linking to a program or resource where games are held and this allows you to run the game remotely but it appears as if it is running on your computer or server.


The second way is the most effective particularly for Yola site builders as you don't need to worry about uploading file sizes which may be too big for your website allowance.

The providers of the games would have snippets of code for you to place on your site. This then is a portal into the game. If you don't know any providers then you will need to find them by a web search or by discussing this with your friends who may be doing this or similar already.
  • The most important widget for games is the HTML holder. This allows you to paste the providers code into a space, Save and publish. Your game(s) will become live if selected.

  • The second most important widget for gamers is the Text widget. This allows you to leave instructions, hints and general information for your users.

  • The third important is the Image widget. This allows you to enhance your page appearance with pictures that may be anything from freeze frames, cartoon statics or simply decoration.
