How to add a video from my pc to a page using the new online, cloud, site builder? I like the old one much better. This one only allows a you tube video, it seems? The old one I could click insert... simple, even control whether the video will play automatically. I wish I had a choice to use the old software. Help, please. Thank you.

I haven't used the new Websitebuilder software but I understand that after you make the learning curve it's really a lot better format and produces a great site. It's a "Responsive design" and is the new phase of internet development. Google won't be tracking the old software. We need to keep up. No one's using a horse and buggy any more. 
The homestead staff will address you question in the morning. Be patient with them. They provide a good service for us non professionals seeking cheap advise.

I can make the old builder available to you if you really wish to, but the new one really is a better option.

We removed the option to upload your own videos and the stream is a better experience for most people, and we were having too many people upload copyrighted material to their websites.

I don't upload copyright material. Yes, please, please make the old software available to me. I have been with you for nearly 20 years. I know how to use it, and am happy with it. There isn't even a spell checker in the new one, and i couldn't copy & paste text I wrote and edited first in Microsoft Word, which I used to do. How do i go about getting the software back, which is still available for the older site I made?  Thank you.

Well, sorry, son. I couldn't find the option to disable the master page of a specific page. Under what button/option do I find it? Thanks for your patience.

Click on the button between Page settings and Insert. You will see the yellow bar that says changes will be on all pages.

I am sorry. Which site are you working on for this? Is it the new builder site?
