What's with all the banners and gradients?

Hi Yola,

Just wondering when the templates are going to be updated. I joined SILVER a few weeks ago and have been trying to create a minimalist tumblr-style site, but everything I do comes out looking 2005. The functionality is excellent (thanks!) but there are too many banners and gradients and page-space-wasting backgrounds in the designs. I mean, not even the Yola site uses a banner. Naff. Please help the 2012 minimalists!

NB I want this to come across as a suggestion, not a grumble. Yola has been hugely cool and helpful in every other area! Cheers!

Hi mattharris.nz,

Thank you for your feedback.

I have passed your suggestions on to our developers, and I can assure you that we take user feedback very seriously. We'd like to provide our premium subscribers with great templates, including blank ones so you can customize it completely, and we understand that not all of our users find that our templates suit their requirements. This is something we are working on improving.

If you are looking for a more minimalist style, there are some Free styles that you might find helpful. Examples of these are "No frills" and "Squeaky clean" - neither of which include a banner.

Thanks again, and we're glad you're enjoying Yola!
