Only certain styles will let you add your logo to the header. There's a list somewhere if you search under related topics.. not sure where.

Here's how to add links to your page:
1. Drag and drop a text widget onto your page.
2. In the text widget type the words that you want people to click on (this is your link text)
3. Highlight the link text and then click on the link button (it's the 10th button from the left in the text editing tool bar, and looks like the link in a chain)
4. A link editor dialogue box will open up and you will be given 4 options. You can link to an email address, an external URL, a page on your own site or a file on your computer.
5. Click on the option appropriate for you.
6. Then type the URL or address of the site that you want to link TO in the appropriate box and click on OK.

You will then have a link on your page. To check that your link is working preview your page and then click on the link.

This is a brief explanation of how to add links, we have written a tutorial that shows the process in more detail. Here is the link: http://www.synthasite.com/tutorials/c....

Hi meetoloveu2 - if you are creating blog posts on Yola, it will automatically be a link that people can click on and open the whole post. Feel free to post your site's URL to the blog page so that we can take a look for you. Here's a link to the blogging tutorial for more info on using the blog tool: http://www.yola.com/tutorials/blogging.

Hi PsychoKnight1,

Here's a link on adding comments: http://getsatisfaction.com/SynthaSite.... Cbox (look further down the page) could be what you're looking for.

To add your own theme or logo - are you referring to the banner area or how to upload pictures?

This link explains how to change your banner: http://getsatisfaction.com/SynthaSite...

To add images to your page you can either:
1. Drag and drop an image widget
2. The file manager dialogue box will pop up
3. Upload a picture from your computer
4. Press ok and an image will be added to your page!
Or:
1. Drag and drop a text widget onto your page
2. Click "insert image" on the text editing toolbar (the icon that looks like a green tree in a picture frame, roughly in the middle of the toolbar)
3. The file manager will open up and allow you to browse for a select an image
4. Using the text widget allows you to insert a number of image in the same text box.

We also have a great tutorial on adding images: http://www.synthasite.com/tutorials/i...

I work closely with a number of other organizations and we would both benefit from sharing our sites. I have theirs posted on my site but anyone viewing needs to copy and paste the URL. How do I create a link???

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled
How can I add links to other sites on my yola website?.
