Site Setup Wizard

Upon successfully choosing a template, you will be taken to the Site Setup Wizard page immediately.

Here you can enter your website name, choose the site category, and specify the type of website you want to create. You can also add in your contact information where your visitors can reach you. If you have a business, this would be a great place to add your business contact information. This information will display in your footer and the Contact block. 

Once you’ve added your information, click Finish setup.

You can also skip these steps and add your website settings later.

Start building your site

Now you can sit back and relax as your site is put together. Upon completion, you’ll see that your new site has a basic layout, with the header, several content blocks with demo images, and placeholder text, as well as a footer. 

You can begin tweaking the content and/or adding your own content and pictures. We have an extensive collection of tutorials to help you get started with adding content to your site. You can find them here: 

Don't forget to save your work. Yola Sitebuilder automatically saves your work every 2 minutes.

To reverse any changes, click the Undo button or press Ctrl-Z on your keyboard.


When you are happy with your site, click the Publish button in the upper right corner of the Sitebuilder.

Once you make your selection, your site will be live online!
