Thanks for this feature suggestion - this is a great way to make your website look more modern and engaging!


We're excited to announce that we now allow you to add videos to your headers, and as backgrounds to sections on your site! Simply click on your header or section, click on "Edit Background," and then click on "Video"! 


You can upload your own video, or choose from a gallery of professionally looping videos. 


Please note: This feature is available on pro plans and above.

At the moment headers are made with weebly background option that can be add by adding clas named .wsite-background to the element. If developers could add few occurances of this background editor on one page than every user could customize every sections background just like he does with the header area now.


This would give the user big freedom and save loads of time and money. Everybody could add for example paralax pictures to their pages without messin with code or hire somebody to do it for him.

I would like to able to change the Search Box placeholder text to whatever I want, such as Search Products..., or Search Store... instead of only Search that comes by default. As of right now, we cannot change the search box's placeholder text in the header on top as there is no option for that. I have tried to tingle with the CSS, but still did not find anything useful. So please Weebly add this minor feature as it will make our websites look much more appealing especially that my website is an ecommerce one. Thank you.

From what I can tell, Weebly recently made a major change to the available themes. In any case, the theme Saucy, on which I had started designing a new website isn't available anymore.

Saucy required placing a logo into the image section of the header, and somehow that functionality is really broken for me (I won't go into detail here). Instead, I now would like to switch to a theme where the logo is displayed in the header menu itself, albeit in a bit larger size. PurpleHaze would probably be perfect, if it actually had the search textbox in the header menu.

One of the main reasons why I switched from a free to a paid Weebly subscription was the support for search from the header menu. After trying out all types of currently available themes (as of 10/25) I have to conclude that the header menu search is virtually eliminated from the available Weebly themes.

Please add this feature to the new themes, and also bring back the older themes once you have verified that the Sections feature works with them (this is based on feedback from a Weebly support agent).Thank you for your consideration, Christoph
