I am just starting to create my new website with Yola, I would like to try out some of the different templates, but am worried that I will lose all of the layout and columns etc that I have set up so far. If I try out a different template, will I lose everything as I currently have it laid out? Many thanks

Hello Mellonzusa,

You can easily change the style of your website whenever you wish. When you do this you will not lose any content from your page. It will all be transferred over to the new style. However, if you have added a custom background or banner, you will need to re-add these if the new style allows for this option.

Here's how to change your style/template:

1. Click on the "Change Style" button on the top toolbar.
2. A dialog box will open with the variety of styles you can choose from. The menu on the left of the dialog box allows you to navigate between Free Styles, Premium Styles, and My Styles (Premium Styles which you have already purchased). You can also look for styles according to the various categories.
3. Browse through the available styles by mousing over them. When mousing over a style, a larger preview of the style will be displayed.
4. When you've decided on the style you would like to use, click on it. A preview of your website will open up with the new style applied to it.
5. If you like what you see: click on "Continue" on the bottom right of the dialog box. (Note: If it is a premium style the button will say "Upgrade to Silver" and clicking this button will activate a payment screen. Alternatively you can try out the style on your site for free before making your purchase and you will be prompted to upgrade to Yola Silver the next time you publish your site.)
6. Once you have made your selection, the new style will be loaded onto your site.

Cheers!
