Place Sections in Columns

Status: New Idea
by Future_Chatham Friday - last edited Sunday by Community Manager

Hi all,

 

I would like to put forward a suggestion which is although quite simple, it's also very beneficial to Weebly users and the visitors to their websites likewise.

 

Currently, users have the limited option to place 'Sections' above or below another Section only. I thought that it would also be great if we could place them to the right or left of existing Sections as well.

 

This would create more of a dynamic experience for visitors and enable Weebly users to display more content in a convenient, compact space.

I would love the ability to create gradients in the section background colors.  I see these on other sites, and it would be nice to be able to create them on Weebly.

Can we get blog categories to display under each post? For example, like this forum where all the categories I've tagged display under the post so I can click to see other posts tagged with the same.

 

I would also like this option combined with the option to not have them all displayed along the side so when I'm tagging recipes I don't have 100 categories along the side and instead just have the categories tagged shown under the specific post.

 

Thanks!

 

Hello! I would like to see better page break options on blog posts. I like the uniform look on some blogging platforms that allow you to give just a snippet of a paragraph or sentence. With Weebly, I'm forced to break between drag and drop items. This doesn't allow me to show less than a full paragraph, which could be of varying lengths or my other option is to break a paragraph which then adds a space in publishing. This would be a nice feature to see!

 

Thank you!

Project Timelines

Status: New Idea
by khyuzza 2 weeks ago - last edited 2 weeks ago by Community Manager

I often need to public on my websites project with deadlines or goals, so I think it could be nice to have a tool that can easily create and update timelines (vertical or horizontal), like those who find there: css-timelines without use html code directly. 

It could be nice insert, into steps: videos, photo, link and so on. 

Let me know! 

Thank you in advance.

Hi there!

Thanks for having such an easy-to-use CMS! 

 

I wish, once you've uploaded a photo, that you could access it on weebly again through a sort of image library of our uploaded photos. There are times, where even though I have previously uploaded a photo, if I want to reuse it elsewhere on the same site, I have to upload it again. Or if I want to switch back to an old photo, it's not available to me through Weebly, I must upload it again. 

 

Thanks!

More Header-Types

Status: Hurray! We're Done!
by Job ‎03-25-2016 01:25 PM - edited ‎06-17-2016 01:44 PM

The header is one of the first things people see when they visit your site.

I think there is not very much choose between Header-Types sooo i have a few idea's i think that are awesome!

 

 

1. A full width slider Header-Type

 

2. An Header-Type where you can drag and drop the elements you want.

 

3. A video Header-Type where you can play a video.

 

4. Modern parallax image in Header

 

(5. Be able to customize height of the background header/banner image.)

(6. You should be able to edit your mobile header separately.)

 

Do you have more suggentions? Leave a reaction below.

Status: Hurray! We're Done!

This is a terrific post - thank you so much for all of your great ideas!

 

We're so excited to let you know that we've just made MAJOR updates to headers, which now allow you to do all the below:

- Add, delete and edit any elements you want in your header

- Click and drag to resize your header's height

- Add video backgrounds to your header (if you're on a pro plan or above)

- Add color backgrounds to your header 

- Add parallax scrolling effects to your header background (on images only) 

 

We haven't yet implemented a slideshow header, but are working on it!

 

Hope you enjoy our new features! 

Website Features

Status: New Idea

Kindly consider the following suggestion, as these are very important while creating good looking website.

1. Add animations of various objects.

2. Header sliders should be incorporated.

3. headers should not be fixed and should be open for editing (images, texts, slideshows etc. on the header)

4. Button color can be chosen.

5. Allow Anchors and anchor texts so that a link could be created for a particular object located on the page. All other website creation platform like WIX and WORDPRESS etc provide this feature.

 

 

Choose a button color of your liking

It would be great, if we could change the color of the buttons to any of our choosing, without having to code it.

Ability to Change Button Color

I am using the Lucent theme and it appears you can change the color of absolutely everything, except the Buttons. So now my site is blue and green, but my buttons remain gold. 

Contact Form emailing content to original poster

Status: New Idea
by MissRosie 4 weeks ago - last edited 4 weeks ago by Community Manager

I would love the contact form to have an option or an automatic feature where whatever information entered is automatically sent back to the original poster's email for their records, not just to the website owner.  It would be great if the actual TEXT in option boxes was included too rather than just the numbers... ie. 1, 2, 3, 4.  

 

Thank you. 

Download Counter

It does not have to be anything very complex just a button that has an integreted counter that counts that how many clicks it has already is great

Bulk Editing: Move/Copy/Delete multiple elements at one time!

Status: Alternative Suggestion Provided
by dp1 on ‎05-18-2016 08:01 AM - last edited on ‎05-18-2016 10:03 AM by Employee Moderator

I have been waiting and waiting for this. When, oh when, will Weebly make this possible?? It is SO fundamental. Having  to edit each element one at a time is extremely time-consuming. I have made at least 5 requests for it--2 by this feature request, and a few by phone. I notice that several other folks would like it, too, as there was at least one other post for it.

Seems to me it would work for several types of sites. Ours, for example, is a non-profit pet rescue organization, and we are constantly posting animals for adoption. As more pets are posted, some get deleted because they are adopted, and some need to be moved to a different spot on the page. I cringe every time this happens, which is very often. I am to the point where I am looking elsewhere for a company that has that feature. PLEASE make this happen soon! Thank you.

REPLACING photos in a gallery

Status: New Idea
by emilyhopper on ‎03-27-2017 11:38 AM - last edited on ‎03-27-2017 01:27 PM by Community Manager

Please give us the option to simply replace images in a gallery while maintaining the current captions & links. 

 

Currently, we have to add new photos, which are then placed at the bottom of the gallery & re-add the link and caption and move it back to where we want it to be. 

Having the option to replace the image in the gallery would be much easier.

Full bleed responsive colored/image/transparent backgrounds

Status: Hurray! We're Done!
by Baytech on ‎06-02-2016 12:34 PM - last edited on ‎06-02-2016 03:26 PM by Employee Moderator

It would be GREAT to have a NEW element that would make a full screen section and allow us to control the background as a solid color, as an image, or as a transparent piece.  Then allow us to drag other elements inside this as needed. Having control of the element section padding would be the topper. here are some samples of what i am mentioning

 

Here is a sample - it goes from the main wrap with 3 columns- to a full screen semi transparent with BG image and allows for other elements to be added in....

Thank you for your consideration on this one and i hope it gets a LOT of votes.  This is a HUGE difference with Wordpress and would once again level the playing field if we had this valuable feature.- Thank you for your consideration- Jim Beck

Thank you for this post, it's a terrific idea!

 

Weebly is excited to have launched sections, which will allow you to create this effect! You can add full-width content areas to your site that you can stack on top of each other. You can add professionally designed layouts to your section, or add your own content. Each section can support an image, color, or video (pro feature) background. You can even add parallax effects to sections with an image background!

 

For more information on sections, you can check out this help article:

We hope you enjoy this powerful new feature! 

I would love to see the membership login/signup pages editable by the weebly editor! This would be amazing!

Thank you for your idea @natster101. The product team is giving it some thought. 

 

Keep voting for this idea! We want to show the product team that Weebly users would benefit from membership page customization.

 

Enjoy your day!

Lightbox for Videos (Youtube, Vimeo, etc)

hi All,

 

I am very surprised to see that Weebly does not have a lightbox for videos,   this is a very common functionality now a days.

 

Once you click on a video thumbnail, it opens a window with the video player inside.  This minimizes resources and optimizes loading times.

 

Please vote for this!

Font changes

I can't believe somebody hasn't already asked for this, but I don't see it. I would like to change fonts on an individual page or paragraph without changing the font throughout the entire website. 

Header padding + Header Height

Please give us options to adjust padding...in everything, headers, sections even the amount of space in the "contact form".

 

Thanks!

Fixing picture size on page

Status: New Idea
by imim on ‎01-19-2017 03:41 AM - last edited on ‎01-19-2017 08:54 AM by Community Manager

When resizing an image on the old editor, you could see the height and width that was being assigned to the image in the corner. Now there is no such feature, and it makes it very difficult to resize several images to the same dimensions, instead having to do it by eye. Ideally, one would be able to input the width and/or height as a pixel value, but the old way of adjusting it until the values were correct would also work better than the current system.
