Using the Block Library

Block Library contains all the building blocks you can use to construct your website. Blocks create a page layout combining text, images, videos, forms, and other elements. Adding a block is the first step in creating your website page.

You can choose between regular blocks that are available to all of our customers and a Premium Embed HTML block that is only available in Yola Silver and Yola Gold plans:


Block categories

You can easily search for the right blocks by browsing the block categories list:


At the very top, you will see two of our most popular blocks - Custom block and Online Store block:


With Custom block, you can create a unique block layout (read more about it here) and with Online Store block you can create your own online shop (read more about it here).

Scroll down to view all other block categories and click on a category to see which blocks it offers. You can instantly preview how the new block will look like:


Searching for blocks

To find the right block, you can use the Search field at the top of the Block Library menu using words like image, text, form, etc:


Simply type in your query and click Enter on your keyboard. The available blocks that contain such an element will be auto-populated and you will be able to choose the one that suits your needs.

Adding a block to a page

Simply choose the block you need, click on it and it will appear on the desired location on your website page. You can continue to customize the block settings afterwards.
