How do I add a flash banner to the top of my page?

You can definitely add a Flash banner to your site, but not in the banner position of a style that has a changeable banner. This is because the banner area does not support .swf files.

You can, however, choose a style that does not have a banner image area and place a Flash Widget at the top of the page and into that your Flash file.  You can use a style called "Skyline" which includes the option to remove your banner area. Here's the steps for this:  

1. In your Sitebuilder, go to Style > Recommended.

2. Select Skyline.

If you upgrade to Yola Silver or Yola Gold, you will have access to the Site CSS feature and can use CSS coding to remove the banner area!
