I have a few websites with Yola, and a domain ( am Yola silver ) and have not created a new website in a while. Today I wanted to create a new site, and was astonished to see that the usual huge choice in templates has been reduced to 9...none of which are suitable :'-(. I appreciate I can create my own, but wanted something quick to select just to get me going, and at sometime in the future may personalise or change it. I can remember creating other sites, and being spoilt for choice with templates..am I doing something wrong?
Ever hopeful.

Hi BritSal,

The 9 templates you are referring to are different from our styles which are still available from within the Sitebuilder under the "Style" tab. Just select any of the new templates for your new site and then head to the Style tab and select "Styles" you'll see you can still choose from our Free and Premium styles.

While we haven't taken away the old styles, we still urge you to check out our new templates. They feature updated designs much more in line with current website design trends and best practices and are far more flexible than our old styles to allow more freedom in creating your newest website.

but you just change things around for the worse and dont even let people know that the other templates can be chosen in the builder and so the person misses out by not knowing or being told on the new create a site page, which is useless wasted update.

Hi Laura,

The following older template seems to have been taken away. However, I agree that the newest templates are a better choice for me for the reasons you mentioned. Thanks!

Hello BritSAL

This Style still exists! Its name is "Simple Frame". If you'd like to, you'll be able to select it after setting up your website. Click on the "Style" tab, then on the "Styles" category and search for "Simple Frame". Once found, click on it to apply it to your website.

However, my personal suggestion would be to go for one of the new 9 Style Templates Laura mentioned, or for Super Flat or Skyline.
