Thank youuuuu Yola! My website looked icky awful before I moved it to Yola and used your free template. Today my company, Next Steps Career Solutions (NSCS), received serious press on CNNMoney.com for our 2009 Career Fair Survey findings. With a bad site, that could have been devastating for NSCS but I credit Yola (especially Littleus) for assisting me in building the site! Seriously, thank you!

Well done Trina,

Would you mind if i suggested 1 or 2 little things just to put the iceing on the cake of your wonderfull site?

1. Maybe i'm getting old but... i can not read the text on the home page 'what we do best' - maybe change the colour.

2. The image on your page 'about us' should be resized (not rescaled on the page) at the moment the file is very large 1,024px × 768px (scaled to 374px × 281px) You can resize the image using Picnik.com -- it would make it snap load if the file itself was smaller.

3. You have 100's of keywords on your homepage, far to many. This can be mis conscrewed as SPAM by google and other search engines, also the words should be seprated by commas and all be lower case.

4. You have a great favorite icon on the home page - i would add it to every page.

All just tweaks to an already fantastic looking site. Well done on your success i wish you alot more.

Lee.

UK Duke -

Thanks for your note! I'm all over it tonight like butter on toast! It's funny because I can't see the favicon myself. I'm thinking it's my browser (IE8) because the favicon never shows for me..but if it's there, you're right about adding it everywhere.

Everyone else- Thank you for your kind words!

Hi there Trina,
Unfortunately IE doesn't display favicons next to your URL.
The favicon will only be displayed if the site is bookmarked and in your Favorites folder.
I can however see your favicon in Firefox.

Trina,

There is a way to get your favicon to show in all browsers. You need to add a snipet of code to a html widget at the top of each page.

The file has to be a .ico -- so first convert your original .png here http://tools.dynamicdrive.com/favicon/ -- then add it to your filemanager.

Once its in the file manager you can add this code to your pages.

<link rel="shortcut icon" href="http://www.nextstepscareer.com/resour...>

PS. If you have added a favorite icon in Yola (for example on your home page) you will need to clear the field for this to work (click the little square next to the favorite icon field - then select filemanager then 'none' (bottom right of filemanager)

Lee.

Sounds like a lot of work but its really easy (just not so easy to explain in text)
