Hi Patrick,

Silver is no more intuitive than Free. It offers extra functionality which is useful for advanced requirements. It's real power is the ability to use CSS to style aspects of your site. This has to be learned out of Yola and applied.

I would agree with Gop that the CSS editor is a powerful feature of Yola Silver. I also find access to a free stock photography library and our Premium Styles, complete with secondary menus, to be very useful feature additions. The Yola footer removal, mobile publishing and Facebook pages are also exclusive to Yola Silver. For a complete list of features, please head here. We hope to serve your website building needs!

Not in my opinion, no. Some Yola Silver features are designed with advanced users in mind, like the CSS editor, while others are designed for the website building novice who still needs a professional website. Aside from the features I mention above, Yola Silver also gives you access to thousands of stock photography images and our Premium styles.

You can always maintain your blog with Blogger by redirecting a navigation link to it or adding it to your Yola site with an iFrame, if that helps you with your decision!

I would want to manage it all on one site, not navigate away. And I can't find an iframe. Help?
Also, why does yola (basic) load so slowly?

If you need help with setting your Blogger in an iframe let me know 2 things. You site name and your blogger name. The solution should be site specific and may depend on your Yola theme plus the content on Blogger. I'm happy to work with you on this.

Can I suggest that you look at dollmakersmuse.com and inspect the Home page plus the Blog page. This website has used an iframe for bringing in the blogger blog onto the page and it is really seamless. This was also done without Silver but rather Bronze I think. Rivkah has worked very hard at integrating the two and also included a third aspect being the external or free Ecwid Online Store.
