The problems I have been having is because I used the word "sexuality"? Took out the word and it was solved. Does that make any sense to you? Using the word, "sexuality" doesn't mean I'm using adult content or posting links to adult content and honestly I don't think using that word even violates yola's terms. Not to mention, the site's not even published.

Unless the code has an error...

<!--
<blockquote style="margin-right: 0px;" dir="ltr"> <p> </p><li><font color="#33ffbb" size="3">Sexuality</font></li></blockquote>
-->

If I need to I can change this code to a basic bullet instead of the block quote.

I believe if you take out the dir="ltr" - this may resolve the issue. This appears because it seems like you may have copied from another an external source?

ok, thanks Sanja... I'm still learning about blockquotes and I wasn't sure if that was necessary.

Sounds like an instance of the "Scunthorp Problem" to me.

The Scunthorpe problem occurs when a spam filter or search engine blocks e-mails or search results because their text contains a string of letters that are shared by an obscene word. While computers can easily identify strings of text within a document, broad blocking rules will result in a false positive, causing innocent phrases to be blocked.

Porn sites aren't blocked? Why would my one NON-inappropriate word be blocked? After all, sexuality is NOT inappropriate... it's not even age suggested. Anyone, anywhere, of any age can see the word sexuality and noone is at fault for breaking any laws. - I could ask a 15 year old girl, "what's your sexuality"? And by doing so, I'm not breaking any laws... I'm running a survey... just as an example! Anyways, I hope the word, "sexuality" isn't what caused a problem because it's not inappropriate, it's not illegal, and it definately shouldn't be violating any policies with yola, browsers, search engines, or affiliate programs.

I had to go into firefox just to delete the widget and see if the problem was solved because that widget is where my page stopped loading. After saving the change I opened the page in internet explorer and it opened just fine.

So was it the word that was causing the problem? Or just the widget?

I'm not sure... I replaced the code with plain bullet code and it seems to work now... but that doesn't mean yola won't flag that word again (if that's what they did). The thing is, I use the same exact code all through my site, only with different text. And this is the only place it's caused a problem.

I have been down for about two or three days because I couldn't open my page. It's a pain in the butt to have issues like this.

Just a suggestion... Your menu's overlapping part of your banner. It could be caused by the menu which has rolled into a two line menu. I don't necessarily care for menus that have so many pages it rolls over to two lines. What I suggest is either creating a custom menu which allows for sub menu items so some pages will only show in the menu when the mouse is over top that menu item or putting some menu pages in a bottom menu which can be as easy as creating a copyright line with links to other pages. Pages such as faqs, contact us, privacy policy, stuff like that can go in the bottom menu. And I would add this to every page. Then get rid of those items from the menu so your menu is only on one line.

Viewing that sitebuilder link above I provided you, you can notice how my bottom menu is. I think it's very effective. It also looks more professional (in my opinion). Add your copyright to this menu as I did... ok, just now viewing your site, I noticed that you do have this type of menu... I would recommend taking the pages that are in this menu out of your main menu, such as faqs... but not all of them... only enough so your main menu is on one line.

What I was talking about looks like you've already done it. You just create some links... like I did...

On my site on my computer, this actually only takes up one line, but with a bottom menu (only basic links, no rectangles, squares, pictures) it looks just fine if you need to make it roll onto a second line. If you need to roll this menu on a second line, I would recommend attempting to have the menu on the first line, then put the copyright on the second line.

If you need those vertical lines like I have above to separate your menu items, just copy them from above, they should paste just fine, that's how I usually get them.

When you create this menu, put it in the very bottom widget so it's always at the bottom of your page.

Also, I haven't tested them... I've been meaning to ask if your external links open in a new window or tab. You should make sure EVERY external link opens in a new window or tab so visitors aren't directed away from your site.

just in a text widget. How can the bottom menu already be there if it's not exactly the same as the top menu? Does yola have options like that?

Anyways, add your links in a text widget like you would normally add links, highlight them and open link editor, then link them to that page. After you get your first bottom menu created, open it's html and copy the html.. paste this html into the html of a text widget on other pages... that way, it's exactly the same on all pages and less work.

all I'm saying is the main menu should be on one line, however you do it! I noticed the "faq" is in the bottom menu, I would take it out of the top... And something else as well.

lol, you didn't have to change your template. But it still appears a link in your menu is on a second line... although, this can be different on different computers.

nope... it is without a doubt... the word, "sexuality"... anyone know where in the terms it says we can't use this word? On my "other" site health and fitness subdomain I'm creating, today, my page stopped loading at the widget sexuality appeared in. Yola must have an algorithm that checks for these words because it's not against policy of google or internet explorer. Because if it was, then porn sites wouldn't exist in these.
