Hello VincentL,

Yola Silver gives you Custom CSS, and with that you can edit your site's CSS. You'll be able to type in any CSS. I wouldn't say it's just like Dreamweaver, but you get to override all of the default styles with Custom CSS option.

The editor looks like this, and you can see a preview next to it that auto updates as you type the CSS:



I hope this helps. You can get more info here: How to edit your Site CSS

Yes, the CSS you type there goes into the <head> part of your site.

However, I recommend not setting a height for your site, since that should be automatic depending on the user's screen, and if they have a taller screen than what you have set there will be a scrollbar to scroll within that part that you set the height on which might look weird.

Well firstly, Is there anyway of adding that coding with Yola silver? I heard you could add that coding by putting it in to a html widget then adding it on to the webpage?

Yeah, but this will only apply to one page. If you need site wide CSS changes, you'll be better off using the "Custom CSS" (Style > Edit Custom CSS) but if you want to add a snippet of HTML or JavaScript to the page, you can use the HTML widget.

If you want to add CSS to the HTML widget you'll need to put it inside HTML style tags, like this:

<style type="text/css">
body {
font-family: Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif;
}
</style>


I can help you with code if you want. There is a post on this forum for coding help, if you didn't know: http://forum.yola.com/yola/topics/apr...
