Two questions: I have a published site, but wanted a whole new look. I created another site (Yola lets you have five) and got it where I like it.

1. How can I move my uploaded files from the first site to the second one?
2. Will I be able to publish my second site once I put in the url of the other one?

Hi, Mary,

To use the files with the second File Manager, follow these steps:

1 Select all of the files or folders in the File Manager that you would like to upload to the other site. You can select more than one by holding down your Shift or Ctrl key (depending on if you want to select all or only some).
2 Right-click on the selection and choose "Download as zip".
3 Download the zip file to your computer.
4 Open your other site and click on the "File Manager" button.
5 Upload the zip file and right-click - choose "Unzip".
6 All of your files and folders will be added to your File Manager.

You can assign the domain name to the second site:

1 Login to your Yola account and make sure you are on the "My Sites" page.
2 Click on "Advanced settings" next to the the "Open" button.
3 Make sure the correct site name is selected on the drop-down list on the right.
4 Beside "Add an existing domain", select from the drop-down menu, the domain you wish to assign to your site and click the "Add" button.
5 Click on "OK".
6 Once done, you will be able to choose which domain is the primary domain by clicking on the "make primary" link beside the domain name.
