Let us use relative paths for hyperlinks

Status: New Idea
by EthanTaylor a month ago - last edited a month ago by Community Manager

For example, in a blog post, when I want to add a hyperlink which links to category "SEO", I currently have to specify an absolute path "http://myfirstwebsite.weebly.com/home/category/seo" for that hyperlink.

 

The trouble appears if I decide to change my site URL from ""http://myfirstwebsite.weebly.com/" to "http://mysecondwebsite.weebly.com" in the future because I will have to go back to that blog post and manually change the site URL in the path of that hyperlink. It becomes even more troublesome if there are hundreds of such hyperlinks to handle.

 

Wouldn't it be convenient if we can specify relative path like "/home/category/seo" for our hyperlinks so that we don't have to worry about the path issue if we decide to change our site URLs in the future?

Enable GZIP Compression

As suggested by: https://community.weebly.com/t5/SEO/Enable-gzip-compression/m-p/23682#M998 I am posting this here in the Vote on Features section.

I ran my website through Google's little test (https://testmysite.thinkwithgoogle.com/) and found that my website is rated very slow (45/100 mobile and 54/100 desktop). After looking into the suggestions I discovered that most of them are beyond my control - such as Enable GZIP Compression and Leverage Browser Caching, which was already suggested here:

https://community.weebly.com/t5/Vote-on-Features/Ability-to-quot-leverage-browser-caching-quot-Test-...

I'd like to see these suggestions implemented into Weebly. I feel like if I am paying for Weebly to host my site I should expect it to be quick and perform well in these tests, thats why I'm paying you and not hosting it myself right?

Terms and Conditions

Status: New Idea
by lreardon 3 weeks ago - last edited 3 weeks ago by Community Manager

Hi all, 

 

I am making a website which requires you to agree to the terms and conditions before submitting an application. You could do this in two ways, a double concent by agreeing once and after clicking submit, a second box comes up saying "are you sure you agree with the terms and conditions." Or you could do a two step page to apply the first is the agreeing to terms and conditions and the next is the application. 

 

Thanks!!

ENABLE HTTP2

Status: New Idea
by madbradjohnson on ‎01-24-2017 11:51 PM - last edited on ‎01-25-2017 08:36 AM by Community Manager

Enabling HTTP2 on Weebly just makes sense. If all your upgraded clients have SSL. It's a simple NGINX config to switch on HTTP2 (You already running NGINX). I understand that it's a super massive infrastructure you are using, but the devs at Weebly are smart.

 

Offering HTTP2 makes financial sense to Weebly..... Then clients get the benefit...

 

Even better - give everyone free SSL (you know - like all the others are doing) then give us the option to pay for HTTP2.

HTTPS Encryption / SSL Option for all Packages - SEO Best Practice

Status: New Idea
by BizTechCoaching ‎09-29-2016 01:52 PM - edited ‎11-09-2016 08:39 PM

Now that Chrome has been updated to basically shame websites that are not secured, it would be good to have the option to purchase and enable HTTPS/SSL for any paid site since this is a best practice for SEO. I saw in another community post that there are no plans at this time to make this option available for anything below the Business package but I hope that is reconsidered if there is enough user support. Weebly is a great platform and keeps getting better, but it would be unfortunate to have to accept that using Weebly means that you will not be able to adhere to certain SEO best practices.

 

For reference, here is the post from the Google Webmaster Central Blog back in 2014: HTTPS as a ranking signal

Alt Text for Slideshows and Banners

My page needs to be compliant with the American Disabilities Act Guidelines. I'm currently unable to add Alt Text for images in slideshows and page Banners. 

 

Please add this feature! 

 

Spellchecker

Status: New Idea
by BJL on ‎12-10-2016 02:47 PM - last edited on ‎12-11-2016 08:19 AM by Community Manager

How about giving us back a spellcheck function that at least underlines misspelled (wordss)... Doesn't even work here in your community forum! This should be a basic option, please figure out how to get this resolved. It doesn't work in any browsers. Editing text has become a pain without running through to find the undlined mistakes.

Add Printer-Friendly CSS to make Weebly sites Printer-Friendly

Status: New Idea
by BizTechCoaching on ‎02-08-2017 08:21 AM - last edited on ‎02-08-2017 09:27 AM by Community Manager

I just migrated my website to Weebly and was disappointed to see how poorly pages print. It looks like a bad version of the mobile site with URLs exposed for all hyperlinks. In doing a little research, it sounds like the solution is to create a CSS for printing. Please build this into all Weebly themes by default.

 

Here are 2 articles on the topic for reference:

 

Make Your Site Printer-friendly with CSS

 
Make your website printable with CSS

I would like for my staff to have access to the orders on my store without having them go through the "edit my Site" Interface.  There's no telling what can accidently/purposely be changed giving that much access to the whole functioning site just to retrive orders for fulfillment.

Delete Old Files

Status: New Idea
by rshough on ‎08-21-2016 06:13 AM - last edited on ‎09-03-2016 05:29 PM by Employee Moderator

A way for us not to have contact weebly to delete old uploaded files.  The folder is shared with mulitiple sites under my user name and the folder gets cluttered.  It would also be great to be able to create subfolders in the upload folder, but I would just go for a feature to delete old files.   It seems very backwards that we have to go through customer service to remove something from our website.  

Better URLs for uploaded files

Status: New Idea
by OneLeftMedia on ‎08-19-2016 11:25 AM - last edited on ‎09-01-2016 09:21 PM by Employee Moderator

The URLs of uploaded files are super ugly and impractical.
Like this:

www. website. com/uploads/6/6/0/1/66010525/image1.jpg

 

Is there a way to make it look like this:

www. website. com/uploads/image1.jpg

 

or even this:

www. website. com/image1.jpg

 

Verify LInks in My Website

Status: New Idea
by stevet40c5 on ‎09-06-2016 06:17 AM - last edited on ‎09-21-2016 04:46 PM by Employee Moderator

If I have a website with a number of links going to other sites, I obviously have no control over the pages to which they link, and sometimes the URLs get changed.

It would be REALLY NICE if there was a Weebly tool that would crawl all links in my website to see if they are still valid (rather than me having to manually visit each and every link on my site.)

I have used NetObjects Fusion before; and that program has a one-click feature that will check ALL links featured in the website. Is this possible with Weebly and if not, could this be added as a future design enhancement?

Optimise for retina displays

Status: New Idea
by nnzz on ‎02-08-2017 01:55 AM - last edited on ‎02-08-2017 09:30 AM by Community Manager

I have beewn using weebly for years now, and it is a very easy to use tool. However, as the years go by, technology moves on, and high resolution screens are a thing of the present. Will there be any retina - resolution support soon? I think in 2017 this should be a standard feature... Not to mention that logos look awful now on retina screens currently.

Thanks. Looking forward to it

Rewards and Loyalty Program

Hi,

 

I think weebly should create a rewards and loyalty program (point system). This is already offered by Shopify. 

No-follow links

When creating an external link, it would be great to be able to choose whether it's do-follow or no-follow. 

Let’s Encrypt is a free, automated, and open certificate authority brought to you by the non-profit

Status: New Idea
by muzaffar on ‎07-19-2016 09:14 PM - last edited on ‎08-05-2016 08:12 PM by Employee Moderator

Anyone who has gone through the trouble of setting up a secure website knows what a hassle getting and maintaining a certificate can be. Let’s Encrypt automates away the pain and lets site operators turn on and manage HTTPS with simple commands. Using Let’s Encrypt is free, so there is no need to arrange payment.

 

If you’d like to know more about how Let’s Encrypt works behind the scenes, check out our how it works page.

Version Control + Single Page Publishing

Status: New Idea
by mmagdalena on ‎03-23-2016 05:15 PM - last edited on ‎03-24-2016 02:31 PM by Community Manager

I'd love to see Weebly add version control and the option to publish select pages rather than the whole site at once. Version control would make it significantly easier to manage changes, especially for people like me who tinker with the actual code. Templates are nice, but they should still be customized to stand out and look different. Sometimes making these changes breaks things -- version control would be wonderful.

 

Also, why is there not an option to publish changes for a single page rather than the whole site? I find myself having to duplicate pages, edit the copy, hide the copy, and go through a ton of hoops to work on pages that aren't all done at the end of the day -- but I still want the pages that are done to be live. Please add a "Publish this page" option.

Tab order on a Form

It would be really helpful to be able to enter a tab order for forms. That way customers/users can just jump from entry to entry using their tab button. Now they move to areas of the form that are not necessarily sequential to the form but based on how the form was made.

Allow a Spell Checker

Status: New Idea
by ronka1997 on ‎12-28-2016 04:29 AM - last edited on ‎12-28-2016 08:25 AM by Community Manager

It is long past due for Weebly to upgrade their software to allow any Spell Checker to work while editing text. Weebly is a great product however it is missing this basic and fundamental feature of Spell Checker that is a mandatory feature to create great websites. 

 

The major Weebly competitors allow for a Spell Checker ... why not Weebly?
