I've tried to create a "join this site" widget on the blog page of my yola website (www.suzannekorb.com) but it's not working. It keeps coming up with an error saying google doesn't have my correct URL, when it does!

I think I may be switching to another website host. Yola customer service sucks, whenever I email them they never give me the right answer!

Google Friend Connect will give you an error when you first install it but only in the Sitebuilder. It's because the sitebuilder address is different to your published site.

When you publish it will connect properly. Please see the tutorial where it explains this.

Hi Suz

Sorry to hear that you are upset with our customer service. I see from your email history, that you had emailed us twice today and that I had responded to you each time. Apologies if I have not replied to you in a prompt and efficient manner. I will be replying to your response again later on and I hope to improve on my service level to you.

As Gop has mentioned, you may get an error when you add your site's code because the Sitebuilder has a different URL than your published site would have. Have you published your site to see if this resolves the problem?

We would like to assist you, but will need your co-operation.

Thank you
