Yola Preview changes

I like the way the old Preview worked much better the way it works now.

Now it opens inside of Yola, requiring a login, before it opened outside of Yola, not requiring a login. This is very inefficient, if you have a site that you want to preview in various browsers, because you have to login Yola on each and every browser. I like some of the other changes, but this one doesn't make Yola better for me, rather it makes it worse. Thanks.

Hello Donald,

Thank you for your feedback. Before making this change, we carried out extensive usability testing in which we found that most users expected it to work this way and were surprised and confused when it opened in a new window.

However, if you prefer the old way and would like to view your site preview in a new tab, here is what you can do:

1. Right click on the "Preview" link.
2. Select "Open link in new tab."

I hope this helps. I am going to pass your feedback on to our Product team who will consider further changes if appropriate, but in the meantime we hope these options will satisfy the most number of users.
