Important Information

This guide is for the Freeola InstantPro Website Builder. This service has now been replaced by a more modern product, RQS, and therefore is no longer updated with new features.

To build your website in RQS for free, please click here or visit the RQS Builder section of your MyFreeola Control Panel.

You can add Music files, Video files and embed YouTube Videos into your pages, all using the Add Media box in the Page Elements Sidebar.

Note: Before uploading any media, it is a good idea to check InstantPro's Supported File Types, which are listed below. Do also bear in mind that different web browsers do support different file types.
