Hello Larry

The problem is that you created two websites in your Yola account which have the exact same name. You weren't able to re-publish the website shown in your screenshot because your other website is already published to your Yolasite subdomain.

I'd suggest to rename one of the sites to avoid confusing them. Here is how to do it:
  1. Open the site you want to rename in the Yola Sitebuilder.

  2. Click on Site > Site Settings.

  3. In the Site settings dialogue box you will find your site name at the top. Click on the Pencil icon next to it and rename it.

Your website will now show a different name on your My Yola dashboard.

If you want to publish the website you showed on the screenshot to your yolasite subdomain, you will need to first unpublish your other website, and then you will be able to publish your "right" website to your yolasite subdomain again.
