Yola should have a sidebar feature

  • Under Consideration
I want to start by saying that of all the site builders out there, yola is by far the best one!

I have just a few ideas though that would make yola even better,

1. A sidebar feature - some way to add content/widgets to sidebar that would appear on every page

sample sidebars



2. I use a html menu and every time I add a new page or delete a page from my menu I have to edit every page to change my menu, if we could be able to add/edit html that will show up on every page that would be great! (kind of like the new tracking code feature)

3. not that big of a deal but maybe an integrated gallery/slideshow feature.

Hi there,

You could add your menu to the Tracking code box.

I have done it here... www.journee.co.uk

Just a bit of tinkering needed.

Hi Pittsburghsportfan

Thank you for your feedback on our Sitebuilder and for sharing feature ideas with us. We appreciate your input!

1. The sidebar feature for widgets you would like to use on each page is a really good one! I will be sure to pass the details on to our Product Team.

2. I understand that it's a nuisance having to edit your navigation each time and can see the benefits of having one place in which to edit it. It is possibly related to the first point and, if we do add this feature in the future, it will most likely happen at the same time. Will Andi's suggestion will work for you as a workaround?

3. The gallery widget is currently under consideration, so it may be something that we add in the future.

Thanks again for adding your thoughts here.

Hello Pittsburghsportsfan,

Are you asking whether you can use your own menu with your own CSS and maybe Javascript?

I am using a css menu.

I'm pretty sure there is a way to change my menu items by uploading an external file, I just don't know how to do it

Hello pittsburghsportsfan,

Are you needing assistance with trying to implement this? You should be able to add the codes using the HTML Widget. If you have to upload .js files then you will need to be a Yola Silver user to utilize this feature.

Alternatively, you may want to consider upgrading to Yola Silver anyways as this does enable you to have the Submenu feature along with other goodies! For more information, please see: Yola Silver FAQs.
