Dianna,

Are you asking if you can use your Wordpress layout for your Yola Blog?

If so there is a way to do this, a workaround.

OK. You have two options:

Bring your Wordpress Blog into a yola site or create a layout with HTML/CSS that resembles your wordpress layout. have a look at http://dollmakersmuse.com/ where Rivkah has done both. Her Blog preceded her Yola site. She created a layout that looks like her blog layout then she brought her Blog (Blogger) into her site with an iframe. It's the best example I have seen of integration of one into another builder.

For comparison check the Home page and then the Blog page of her site.

I just had a look at tasty Trades. this would be very easy to create a layout in Yola as it really is a blank style with an image banner.

Hi Dianna,

Yola styles are proprietary and specifically created, or modified, for the Yola sitebuilding set. They can't be used for other website building facilities. The converse is also true that you cannot use external themes for Yola.

You may be able to place the yola created site into Wordpress with the use of an iframe. You would need Wordpress forum support for doing this specifically unless they have an instruction specifically on this. Basically you would need to construct a site on Yola first before being able to do this.

PS: There are literally hundreds of free Wordpress themes (if not thousands) available for use on Wordpress. I think that this would be a better way to go and then you won't have the serious issues of using iframes etc with your Wordpress site.

Hi Dianna,

If I'm understanding correctly, you want all your existing content on your Wordpress blog to be displayed on a blog page on your Yola site, is that correct? If so, I would suggest highly using the iFrame method Gop suggests above. This way you do not lose any past posts and you still enjoy the more advanced features of the WordPress blog platform.
