My home page is totally wasted after I pasted this HTML code (http://getsatisfaction.com/yola/topic...) on my homepage. I cant edit my homepage now! It looks like this when I want to edit:


Now my site looks like this:

Hi Ruhan

It looks like something went wrong when you pasted the code. Does the page not load at all? I am asking because I want to know if you are able to delete the code?

If not, you will need to email support@yola.com so that we can take a closer look at the problem.

Hi Ruhan

First of all, you need to get rid of the <!-- and--> This just prevents the code from being read on the forum.

Secondly, you need to replace all the images with your own, which is why none of the images are showing up. This is what I see on your site:

But this is not possible because I can`t edit my page! And secondly, my site looks totally different on Chrome. If you can, have a look.

Ahh.. okay... it's most likely because you've pasted the code in wrong. Send your e-mail to support@yola.com and they'll help you out.

As a rule of thumb, always try out new codes on a test page first to ensure that you don't lose your original work.

I know the grid table works cuz I've got it on my test site. I think it's just a matter of copying the code incorrectly. I hope that the error will be taken care of easily.

Yes, thanks everyone. Luckily I did on a test page! So no huge problems! And I just deleted that page and created a new index page.

Thanks guys!

Whew!! I'm happy to hear that it was on a test page. But, you did make me go back to the table code to make sure there were no errors. There aren't any however it seems to not lay out in a table grid fashion for IE. Looks great in FF though. Just wanted to let you know. I'm gonna try working on it to see if I can get it to display the same in IE.

Thanks! This will be great. But the thing is I`m using Chrome!

Hi Ruhan - good to hear you used a test page. Let me know if you need any help correcting the HTML code you tried adding to your page.

I just tested it, I want to put a gallery of pics. I think I`m gonna use Flickr instead. But now I`m having problems getting the right email address. I type in my address but then it still shows the default pics (I`m using Lightbox)

I'm not completely certain, but I think you have to sign up with flickr, add your pictures, tag 'em and then stream them. Here's a tutorial:

Hi Ruhan,

There are a few reasons why your Flickr pictures aren't showing:
* Check your privacy settings with Flickr - if the pictures you want are marked private, they will not show on your site.
* Make sure the tags you are using are accurate and match the ones on your photos.
* Make sure your pictures are classified as Photos on Flickr and not another category.
* Make sure that you have used the email address associated with your Flickr account (if you have more than one email).
* Be as specific as possible in your search terms.
