Go to http://www.yola.com. Scroll all the way down to the bottom of your screen. You'll see a little footer there. On that footer, about the 5th one in, is the "company blog". You can click on this and it'll bring you to the Yola blog.

Yola team.... I would suggest making these links more visible and accessible. It took me awhile to figure out where this blog was located as well. A suggestion that I would have is to relocate the blog link to the top where you have "home, about Yola, Press, etc..." That is a great visible place and easy to get to!

Hi, How do I get a blog like Yola's blog? Yola's blog is a lot better looking than the one in the site builder! Is there any service that has an embedded blog or something?

Hello Nathan.. what you can do is use Wordpress if you wish and then embed your blog using an iframe code.

Sanja,
is it true ?
Blog.yola.com use wordpress blog ?

I don't know why you recomment Wordpress when Yola has a generic blog feature.(I know, Wordpress is the rocking blog script.)

Hello Ayesh

The reason why we like to keep Yola's blog on a different blogging platform is because in case something happens to Yola - such as unexpected downtime, we can still post the status and keep our users informed about what's going on.

Sanja, it's true, then, that we can have a WordPress blog on our Yola sites? Is there a set of instructions on how to embed one, for those of us unfamiliar with iframes?

Hello Keara

You can add a Wordpress blog to your site via an Iframe.

To add an iFrame to your page, drag and drop and HTML Widget and then paste the following code:

<iframe src="YOUR WORDPRESS URL GOES IN HERE" width="100%" height="1300">
<p>Your browser does not support iframes.</p>
</iframe>

Please note that not all Wordpress blogs will necessarily embed well into your Yola Site as it depends on the style you're using. It is best to try to use a style on your site that has a wider content area so that there is enough room to embed your blog. Alternatively, you can select a Wordpress theme that uses a narrower template.

You can see my example of a Wordpress embedded into my site here:

Please let me know if you have any trouble with this.

Sanja, that seems simple enough. :-) Wow - this opens up whole new possibilities at Yola. I won't be doing this right away, but I'm awfully glad to know about it. Thank you.

I have started using Blogger now instead of WordPress because you can have your own domain name for free (WordPress you have to pay for those features) and there is other features, I also I removed the navbar that is at the top of blogger blogs with some CSS. The reason why I have it on a different system (instead of the blog embedded in my site with the blog page) is so if Yola goes down, the blog will still work and people can still look on there to see updates, because it is on the blogger platform. I have made a sub domain for the blog too. Here's the blog: http://blog.nathansmusicstudio.cz.cc/

Nathan,
The hosting providers out there do include the Wordpress platform in their hosting package. Only small amount of money then you could have an affordable hosting account.
