Thanks, Yola, for the flexibility

I've just discovered that I can do just about anything with my Yola site by creating it first in my HTML editor (I use KompoZer).

This is great because I was able to use a colour that was not available in the Yola colour picker. Now I can't wait to see what else I can do.

The reason I'm so pleased is that I will be buying Dreamweaver and taking an expensive course this summer, and I was afraid I wouldn't ever get to use it with my Yola sites. (KompoZer is all right, but it has some annoying issues that affect my other sites.)

Hi Gina,

Just a heads up on the Yola color picker. I've only used the background color changer, but you can type in your own hex# for any custom color you want. I'm thinking the text editor would work the same. Since I don't use it, I'm not sure though.

If you didn't see my other post, you might want to do the 30 day free trial of HTMLPad Pro. It's a really nice, inexpensive editor I've used for years. That said, I have nothing against Dreamweaver except the price and learning curve.

Hello Gina

We're pleased to hear that you've enjoyed what Yola has to offer in terms of building your website.

I do need to let you know that if you create a page or site with Dreamweaver, it is not possible to upload into Yola.

For a site to work on Yola it needs to be built using the Sitebuilder tools.

As you have discovered, you can add snippets of HTML code though.

I hope your enjoy your Dreamweaver classes!

Margie, HTMLPadPro is for Windows and I'm a Mac user.

And yes, I have noticed that I can edit the HTML on other stuff, and change the colour, which is great because for one thing the colour picker is very small (or it is my aging eyesight?)

Sanja, I don't understand what you mean about Dreamweaver. I have just created a block in KompoZer with text, formatting and an image, and copied and pasted the code into one of my pages, as a test, and it worked.

Then I went back to the Yola editor, and applied some more formatting, and that worked too.

So what would be the problem?

Hello Gina

What you're doing is just fine! :) Adding HTML codes is not a problem.

Some people have created entire pages and sites with Dreamweaver and try to upload those pages and sites which does not work with Yola.
