Hi Dakota. You may like to tell us your website URL so that we may enjoy and learn.

As far as improving I suggest a couple of things. One to look at the featured sites of Yola builders and secondly to search for award winning sites generally and see what takes your eye. The first thing that you will probably realise is the variation in designs and secondly the functional aspects that intrigue you.

Design is very personal but the Yola templates give you a good starting point. The functions sometimes appear mysterious and sometimes hard to track down because of the definitions used. That's really where Yola Forum can help. If you describe the function you would like to use then it's likely that you will be given a reference or a jump start with a bit of code. Then it really begins to go.

Your project sounds fascinating and I hope that we can see it.

Hi, Dakota,

Looks like a great project! My family and I visited an Ojibwa village this summer and had so much fun and learned a lot.

A couple suggestions. Maybe a few more details about what the project is on the home page; it's not completely clear at first. Also, the different colors are hard to read especially the purple. White on black is best.

Good luck with your website.
