Hi Nick,

While we can offer you the option to remove the Yola link for a fee, the credit to the designer cannot be removed due to our licensing agreement with them.

Yola's policy is to be absolutely clear and up front with customers about what they are purchasing, and we give you exactly what we promise. When you elect to remove the footer from your page, we display a screen with a graphic illustrating exactly what will be removed, along with a clearly visible message which states: "Please note: The Designer Credit in the footer cannot be removed." The link in the message opens a tooltip explaining exactly what the designer credit is. It states: "About the Designer Credit: The Designer Credit is text that is locked into all basic Yola pages. Per our agreement with the designer, it acknowledges their contribution to the page. (ex: Designed by free CSS templates)"

Here is a picture of the screen that we display at time of purchase.


If this presents a problem to you, you might want to consider using a style that does not have design credit attached to it.

You can generally find these near the beginning of the style selector. To learn more about styles that do not have design credit, see the Yola Style Guide http://www.yola.com/yola-style-guide.

another solution yo can post is to add a txt box and hit the space bar a few times. ppl don't normally scroll if they see nothing.
