Hi kieran,

Possibly you could create a menu tab to your google apps with a meta refresh (you may be penalised by Google doing the meta refresh though) and then login manually into that facility? Another option may be to do it through an iframe? If you need some ideas for this let us know.
Good idea but how would i achive this? Not good at programming

Hi Kieran,

Create a new page called "GApps" (or anything you wish to call it) as you do for any new page.

Drag an HTML widget onto your page from those available on the right hand side of the builder.

Copy and Paste:
<iframe src ="http://google.com/a/mooomiandev.co.uk" width="1150" height="10000" SCROLLING=NO>
<p>Your browser does not support iframes.</p>
</iframe>


See how it looks and if you like give me your site address. Tell me if you want anything tailored and I can see if I can do this for you.

Good work Kieran,

If you look at the code above which you have pasted, then you will see that I made the width 1150 px. This can be reduced to fit into your page, possibly 900 pixels or so. Similarly I made the length extremely long this could be reduced to something more appropriate. I can't really say the exact measurements as I haven't seen your page so if you can just play with it you will sooner or later hit on a good size(s).

Please tell me that you are not 11 years old.

Both Get Satisfaction (this forum) and Yola ( the sitebuilder that you are using) don't allow people of under 13 to have accounts. This is stated in both the companies Terms of Service
Hi hop,

No I am not 11 but the kids that created the business and who create the programs are. I just made their website for them.

By the way, I did what you said and the page didnt display correctly. So i went with your seccond piece.of advice, a meta refresh which works.great! Thanks for helping.

I used

Thanks for that. Kind of you to support their budding entrepeneurialism.

iframes can be difficult to balance the appearance factor, I understand.

Just be careful with a meta refresh it can be looked on poorly by Google as a deceptive process and can get your site banned from the index. It does work well though.

Make sure also that you give yourself enough time in the setting to get back into the page if you need to edit anything additional other than the redirect itself because even in the sitebuilder it will redirect. If it's effectively a holding page then not so bad as you can simply delete the page if there are any issues.

The meta-refresh allows for a delay. The number used is actually the measure of the delay. "0" is an immediate redirect. Try replacing the number with 30 and I think that this will give you a 30 second delay.

<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="30; url={redirected to site}">

The best practice for doing this is to follow the google instructions,
but you have to be able to create a CNAME record for your domain:

http://support.google.com/a/bin/answe...

also it has defaults for
mail.primary-domain-name.com
calendar.primary-domain-name.com
www.primary-domain-name.com
docs.primary-domain-name.com
and sites.
