It's been a year since I was lucky enough to find Yola. Back then i didn't know a thing about site building. Thanks to how easy it is to use Yola and the great support you get from this award winning forum I now have a good HTML, CSS and SEO knowledge.

Its been such a fun learning curve - I've loved it.

Now I feel that i have just about graduated the school of Yola and i am now learning server side languages. I am moving the main section of my site to another host (which unfortunately I'll have to pay for) but i will continue to build sites and host a part of hexham.info (soon to be known as hexham.eu in Yola world) here @Yola.

I just want to say a big thank you to you all for your help and your friendship over the last year.

Lee.

Hi James, Yola is the best at what it does, but it does not allow the use of php, my site has simply out grown the capabilities of what Yola offer.

I'm not leaving Yola, I'm just expanding my wings into things that 99.9% of Yola users will never need or want and so Yola don't provide.

Hi Duke,

Yeah it will be sad to see you partially go, hopefully I have gained a few bits of knowledge from you and hope to get more by spending a bit of time looking into css and html a bit more!!

Yeah, Yeah, Yeah... You'll never go further than a thread away I think... ;)

Glad to see that you have gone so far my friend. You have become wonderfully accomplished in so many ways... ;) Keep it up and full speed ahead with all your endeavors...

Myself, I hope that one day I can be without the need for doctors and pills. Hope it is in a good way and not bad if you catch my drift. ;) LOL

Maybe one day I shall return to the forums but my mind has been on so many other things lately. I can dream ;)

This is a bit on the large size when you click on it but I kept it big so that you can do more with it... Congrats on the upgrade.



Proud of you Mate... ;)

PS. Try http://bravenet.com/ for a good secure embedded password protect feature with a ton of other cool features. At $39.95 U.S. per year/feature it is pretty cheap and easy to use. I have a website I am building for an association in Washington and will be using Bravenet for 3 different features.

Happy site building
Ed

Funny guy... LOL That was last year and now I am 215lbs as I lost 25 pounds due to various medical reasons. I am 6' 7" and needed that extra poundage...

Thanks for telling me I have a big head buddy old pal. ;)

Hey buddy, where the hell you think you going. We're not done with you yet!
Have you not heard of iframes? Thats what I'm going to do until Yola catches a wake up ;) Build a new site using Yola's excellent site builder and pull in all the interactive stuff with iframes. I can't believe it's only been a year. Seems longer ..
