Hi Callum,

There may be but may I ask the name of the style that you are using?
Various styles have different container widths. It's often easier to chnage the Style rather than the coding of the Style for altering the width. (Sometimes it isn't :)

Your best style for this is Squeaky Clean. It's wide , white and open. Top menu and is a free style.

Hi Gop thank you for this however the Squeaky clean comes with a very annoying banner at the top is there any way of removing this?

Hi Callum,

There's no banner with Squeaky Clean? Can you recheck and if it's showing just do a screen shot and post here.

I use this style extensively so I'm a bit surprised at your observation.

Oh,

Unless you are referring to the Yola Logo which appears on all free yolasites and custom domains built with Yola Bronze. This can be removed by upgrading to Yola Silver but appears on Free and Bronze account built sites.

When you add content it is apparent that it's a footer logo but a new clean site it can appear near the top.

I'm wondering??

Hi Gop,

Sorry i think its the space where the header would normally be, its very annoying as the space is just emtpy space i do not work,

Is it possible to create a drop down menu alternatively to the top menu?

Cheers

Yes it is but a third party add on. Do a web-search and find one that you like.

Basically you have to add the HTML to each page and not use the built in menu. The CSS can be added as a sitewide over-ride or external style sheets if you have Silver or by adding it as inline or internal style sheets for Free and Bronze . Positioning it at the original place of the menu is a bit tricky but can be done with some CSS

Hi Tamara,

You can now do this with CSS if you know how to work CSS and the traditional way is to create a background image in something like Photoshop or whatever and then save it for use as your background.

Text aspects like colour can be altered with simple HTML, inline CSS or with sitewide CSS (Silver feature).

You can generate gradient backgrounds of a bicolour or multicolour constituents with the use of CSS or by using one of the free online features found in a web-search.

Hope I got you right on this?
