Hi there Xemness,

Unfortunately you won't be able to add the logo over an existing banner image, but Yola offers a selection of styles that allow you to change the entire banner image. If you did this, you would need to create your own banner image to include your logo.

There are quite a few banner making programs on the Internet if you would like to create your own. I have used a few programs which worked quite nicely if you would like to give them a try: Banner Fans and Banner Maker Pro , (this is not a free program, but they do have a free trial available).

Here is a link to another post where a group of users were discussing this topic and gave lots of good ideas: What is the best banner making program .

Make sure to look at the dimensions of the banner area of your style (this will be displayed at the bottom of the banner editing menu) so that you can create your banner to be the proper size.

Yola offers a selection of styles that allow you to change the banner image. If the banner image can be changed, this will be indicated when you mouseover the banner image.

To change the banner image:

1. Click on directly on the banner image on your page. This will cause the banner editing menu to pop up.
2. A dialog box will open up that will allow you to browse your computer for an image or choose an image from the File Manager.
3. Once you select your image the banner editor will open up.
4. You will now be able to crop and resize your banner image.
5. Once done, click on OK and your banner image will be added to your page.
6. Click on "Save" for the banner image to be saved to your page.
7. You have the option to apply this image to all current and future pages of your site by selecting the "Apply to All" option from the banner editing menu.

Here is a link to more information on the attributes of the different styles: Yola Style Guide.

Right now Yola does not have its own comments widget. You can add a comment box by utilizing of one these two services:

Disqus Comment Box:

1. To get the comment code, your site needs to be published.
2. Please go to and register for an account by clicking on "Sign up, free".
3. Register your site in the blue box. Enter your site URL, site name and site short name.
4. Create your Disqus Profile in the green box. Enter your username, password, and email address.
5. Click on continue.
6. Choose your language and any other optional features you'd like to include with your commenting platform. Then click on continue.
7. In the "Choose Install Instructions" box, click on Yola/Synthasite.
8. Copy the code in the #2 box.
9. Go back to site builder and drag over the HTML widget box and paste the code into the box. Then click on Done.
10. When you preview your site, you may see this message: "This page could not be reached by Disqus. If you are testing locally or on a password-protected page, please use the disqus_developer parameter as detailed here.." - please don't worry about that. You just need to update your site and you will see the comment box working on your published site.

Another alternative is to use Html Comment Box. Please follow the steps for this:

1. First log into your Google account. If you do not have one, then you can create a free Google account here .
2. Please go the Html Comment Box .
3. In the blue box, you will need to click on "Log in" - this will give you your moderation tools. You will be taken to your Google email account. Enter your login information. Once completed you will be taken back to the Html Comment box site.
4. Please select the options you want available (which is found in the blue box). Then, copy the code you see in the green box.
5. Go to your site builder, drag over a HTML widget box and paste in the code.
6. Save and update your site.

I hope this answers your questions.
