Okay so I found the code below on another question and I know how to insert it into the 'footer' section on site tracking. How can I change this to a footer with links to 'Terms & Conditions', 'Delivery', 'Returns', 'Facebook' and 'Twitter' separated by a decent amount of space? Thanks!

Hi George,

A solution to this is to set it up in situ with appropriate spaces.

The linking can be done with HTML:
<a href="link to URL">Terms & Conditions</a> {appropriate spaces}<a href="link to address">Delivery</a>...etc. You will need to play with spacing to get this right.

The link to address would be of the form specifically for your site and the page referred tohttp://yoursite/page or your facebook or twitter address.

That's excellent George. I'll work on some CSS to get the rest of it right.

No worries, I sorted it. I just made a text box with the text/hyperlinks in it in the right colour, published it then copied the info from the page source and changed the margin and it worked :)

Thanks for your help Gop!!

Hello sega,

The above solution only works with Yola Silver or Gold.

If you have either of these subscriptions I am happy to work with you on this.

Gop.

I am new to building my website and would like to put a footer of the links to my home page. Can someone explain how to do this step by step? I don't know any codes to input but I do have Yola Silver if that helps.

Hello sega,

I'm glad that you have Silver as this makes the process very easy. The coding is placed in the Site Footer Code area. To navigate there follow the breadcrumbs following:
Site>Site Settings>Tracking>Site Tracking Code>Footer Code

This is quite a sensitive area of the website and you can so easily crash your site by adding incomplete code because there is no error checking. If that happens you can only re-build your site from scratch again. For this reason it's almost imperative to create a test site to check the code before you apply it to your loved site.

So if you can give me a description or a link to what you envisage, I can offer some solution I hope. let me know here

So easy to crash your site? How do you mean?
I've put many hours into my site and can't afford to lose it.

"crash your site" means that something goes wrong and you can't fix it because you are locked out.

To minimise the risk you create a test site and place any of the experimental code into the test site. If it is wrong then your test site will crash and you are aware. if it works then you can reasonably confidently copy the code into your real site.
