We've removed the design credit from our styles!

  • Updated 7 years ago
As you know, Yola has had an agreement in place with Free CSS Templates, which meant that a credit to the designer (i.e., "Designed by Free CSS Templates") appeared at the bottom of certain free templates.

We understand that this has been a source of frustration for many of our users, who feel it detracts from the professionalism of their website. To this end, we have been working hard to find a solution to this.

The good news is that we've negotiated a special deal with Free CSS Templates, and the design credit will now be removed from your sites that are using those styles!

All you need to do is republish your sites and the design credit will be removed from the footer area.

Any new sites you build will definitely not include the credit!

I presume that this means that the eyesore of the Yola footer will disappear as well for folks who are also trying to build a professional looking site and possibly can't afford the purchase of a silver account in their starting days or year. The scoundrels who designed the footer should be confronted with an offence against the dignity of Yola's leadership in the ranks (possibly "lese majeste").

Hello Gop,

No, footer removal is still a feature of Yola Silver. We found there were not enough requests to remove the footer from sites to make it an individual purchase.

You can email us at any stage at support@yola.com and we can assist you with removing your footer.

The small line of text inserted by Yola is a small price to pay for free access to an Internet site and all the facilities they include. Surely, if it has cost you nothing, you could be appreciative of this.

The problem isn't the small line of text - which isn't small anymore - it is twice as large as the text was originally - it is the change in the logo in the text from a standard font to a very unprofessional rendering of the word yola, and the placement of the word yola - there are several extra spaces between the text and the word yola - perhaps the intent was to highlight the word yola, but instead it gives an unfinished appearance to the advert
also, the fly out on the old pages remained in the footer, the new flyout now intrudes beyond the footer into the page.

Perhaps the text could be changed back to the regular text, and the problem with the extra space addressed? It woudl create a much more polished image for the webpage. I would be more likely to look at the offering from the old footer than from the new footer.

Hello Rose Marie,

The Yola link increased in size for anyone who signed up for our free package after June of 2010. The larger link makes it easier for a website visitor to recognize the site as being built with Yola. If you are not happy with this, we suggest you take a moment to consider upgrading to Yola Silver. We are very proud with all we can offer in our free package and hope you can enjoy the benefits of the free product as well should you choose not to upgrade to Silver.

Thanks for the response - the point I am trying to make is that the large link isn't as well designed as the smaller one, and word Yola isn't rendered in an aesthetically pleasing fashion as the old one - I understand everyone thinks bigger is better, but poorer design might not attact new customer, which is antithetical to the purpose of the change -

Thanks for the feedback. We do appreciate it. The reason why we have done this is to make it easier for a website visitor to know and recognize a site as a Yola built site, and also allows the visitor easier access to Yola.com so they may get a site of their own.

Wow! This is awesome. I did already know that it is possible to work out something with them to remove the design credit, however, I didn't know that it was possible for you guys to do this (since you made a different type of agreement with multiple templates) so I never told you guys about it.

Anyway, thanks for this. The free templates are much better now without the credit!
