Copying among 2 sites

Status: New Idea
by JVO yesterday - last edited yesterday by Community Manager

Can anyone help me?

I have 2 sites with weebly. Is it possible to copy some pages from my site to my other site without recreating the pages and searching for the pictures and so one.....?

Thanks for your feedback,

Better hierarchical format for creating a site with many pages

I have a site with hundreds of pages, and every time I create a new page I have to drag it to where it needs to go. It would be nice to have a better hierarchical format to make this easier. The ability to expand and collapse would be so helpful!

Undo Button

I love that Weebly saves automatically, because it helps if the computer shuts down, we lose power, I'm being blonde and click the wrong thing, etc. However, sometimes you do something and then want to smack yourself because you screwed something up. It'd be so awesome to have "save points" or an "Undo" button, to where you can make or undo changes until you hit that big 'ol publish button, then it flushes the save points. This way, even if something does happen, computer shuts down, whatever, if you haven't clicked "publish", you know the site saved a few save points up till that point, so you wouldn't worry so much if you clicked the wrong thing right before the apocalypse happened and you broke something Smiley Happy

Parallax scrolling for video headers and sections

Status: New Idea

Hi,

 

I notice that when a header or section has a video background, the only available scrolling effects are "none" and "reveal".

 

Other hosts (who don't do responsive nearly as well as Weebly) already support parallax scrolling in front of video backgrounds, and we'd really like this for two of our pages.

 

Can Weebly make this available, pretty please?

Page moves between sites on an account

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

I have multiple sites on my account. Sometimes I create pages that I'd like to duplicate on other sites, but there is no feature to move or copy pages from one site to another, as you can do within a single site. I love that feature in general, but this would be extremely time saving if I could just copy a page (that I've spent a lot of time on) to another one of my sites so that I don't have to be redundant with my efforts and time. 

Access to image directory / File Manager

Status: New Idea

In other CMS platforms, the user has the ability to scroll through their image directory, so if you need an image again or on another page in the site, you can just reference it just like we already have the ability to do with files.  Currently, as far as I can tell, the only way to reference a previously used image is to find it on the site and use the URL or to upload it again.  Especially with photos, it would be nice not to have to keep the original files on a hard drive once they've been uploaded to the site.  I've had a few times where i had to search through blog histories to find a file I needed a year later.  If the image directory was easily available, I could have just selected the file from a list.

I've attempted to build a squeeze page, and found myself unable to hide the site navigation on a single page to do it. There's a thread in the community for it, with a nice tutorial, but I haven't been able to get it work, and spent what must have been hours attempting to follow the steps. A feature that allows us to do this without coding would be incredibly useful.

Ability to Publish Single Pages

I'd like to publish single pages. Right now when you click publish, all changes get published.

Option to create blank landing page

Would be nice if we could have the option to create a totally blank landing page with no header, no footer, no navigation menu so we can custamize as we see fit.

Sort pages on site editor into folders?

Status: New Idea
by Daaberlicious on ‎03-01-2017 04:17 PM - last edited on ‎03-02-2017 02:01 PM by Community Manager

Hello! I'm currently working on transfering a webcomic over to Weebly. Weebly is very powerful when it comes to designing pages and I'm not at all complaining about the page limit, of which there is none.

 

However I immagine future posting of pages for this webcomic will only make the editor more and more unreasonably convoluted and messy as a massive column of un-sorted pages starts to develop. I've heard some complaints about this before and I'm only just now starting to see what they mean.

 

If the Weebly site editor could perhaps impliment folders for users to sort the pages in the editor, it would make things a lot more convenient and break fewer scroll-wheels as one's archive gets bigger on their webcomic.

 

To clarify: I'm not talking about sub-categories. While those have their uses and are plenty effective for it, the problem lies in that the list simply grows too big to navigate efficiently.

 

Alternately, a small search box in the editor could serve the same purpose by hiding the pages that don't match the search- Perhaps capable of searching by page title, URL, or even words used within the page itself.

 

Thank you for your time.

'Copy' page button should be labeled 'Duplicate'

Status: New Idea
by Rucksack-Tex on ‎01-04-2017 09:02 AM - last edited on ‎01-04-2017 09:10 AM by Community Manager

UI suggestion: Button for duplicating a page should be labeled 'Duplicate', NOT 'Copy'.

 

Copy is conventionally followed by Paste. I wanted to duplicate a page, couldn't find a duplicate command, so tried copy — and then, quite naturally I think, I went looking for the paste command and of course couldn't find it. I did finally realize that the page I 'copied' had been duplicated and was sitting at the bottom of my pages list.

 

If button/command were labeled 'Duplicate' I'd know that I should look for it immediately rather than looking for a way to paste what I just copied.

 

Might also make more sense to place the duplicated page right next to the source page, so it's easier to see what happened and easier to find the duplicated page. Maybe mark new page 'duplicate of XYZ"....

Weebly, please build a "PRODUCT GALLERY" element for application within our product pages.

 

I would love for there to be a "Related Items" element (gallery of products) that Weebly shop owners could add to our product pages! I want to retain my audience for as long as possible and create easy flow in and out of every page but keep viewers in my shop! If a viewer clicks on an item they like I would love to be able to quickly show them a few more they may be interested in. This can be done by adding a gallery element option within our product pages that would display other related items in our shop. Shop owners could manually drag and drop which products they would want to show in the "related items" gallery, or click something like "automate" that would allow weebly to pull items it thinks are related based on an algorithm that uses tags or keywords within the title of the products. 

 

Creating the ability to add a "Related Items" gallery column to the right below our description (vertically), or a "related items" gallery row at the end of the body above our footer (horizontally) would be amazing and would improve flow and viewer retention in our shops.

Upload Custom Fonts

Status: New Idea
by jsl on ‎02-25-2016 05:45 PM

I saw a post in another section with a user asking how to add more fonts. Someone replied with an accurate and very helpful answer about adding a font by editing the HTML/CSS code manually. Here's that thread: https://community.weebly.com/t5/Site-Editor/Why-can-t-I-get-more-fonts/m-p/292/highlight/true#M20

 

I think that we should be able to upload a font file (like a .ttf file), give Weebly a little time to process it, and then be able to use it in our site - or even better, throughout all sites on an account. It would certainly make having a consistient font between print and digital materials much easier. Maybe a Business plan feature...

New Page Type Needed

Status: Hurray! We're Done!
by WorkingWebsites on ‎02-07-2016 10:15 PM

It would be great to have a Page Type in Weebly that, when selected, creates a page link in the navigation menu that does nothing when clicked or hovered over apart from display a drop down list of all its sub pages. There are many occasions where this type of page is required. For example, let's say you want to create a top level Menu page called "Videos" which has the following sub pages: Horror, Sci-Fi, Westerns etc. When a user clicks on "Videos" from the Menu, rather than going to a Videos HTML page it simply displays the list of sub pages for you to select from.

 

Presently, there is no way to to create this effect in Weebly. The main use of this feature would be to create a "Catagory" header in the main navigation menu which goes nowhere if clicked but automatically lists its sub-pages when clicked or hovered over.

Hey all, 

 

Thank you for surfacing this great idea! We listened to your feedback and just launched a new page option today called a "Navigational Menu." You can find this option by:

 

1. Clicking on the Pages tab

2. Clicking on the name of any standard page that isn't your home page 

3. Clicking on the checkmark that says "Make a Navigational Menu" 

4. Publish your site 

 

When a page has this option toggled to "on," clicking or hovering on that page on the published site will only bring up a list of its child pages. It will not bring your visitor to a a different page! 

New Page Option- Pop Up Page

Status: New Idea
by mandismuses on ‎06-03-2016 04:38 PM - last edited on ‎06-08-2016 03:24 PM by Employee Moderator

You gave us our navigation page option, which we've ben using like crazy. Now I've got another that I've been trying to figure out for hours today and can't, even with the available Weebly apps. What about a pop-up page?

 

As an author with only a few books out, my current Books page will suffice. Example here- http://www.mandikonesni.com/books.html

 

However, I'm soon going to be working on multiple series and anthologies, and it would be nice to have a gallery of covers. When they click on a cover, it brings up a pop-up page where I can put the cover image, blurb, and links of places to buy. 

 

Right now, you can do this by linking the photo to a page and it'll open that page. But I've love it to be able to be a pop-up page instead, so that people can check out that book, click "X" to close that window, and continue down the list. Thoughts?

Page Search Tool

Hey

 

I have a website with a lot of pages and finding these pages to edit them is a long and painful process every time I want to access a page which is hidden from the navigation or at the bottom of the page list. I currently have lots of pages and always adding more to better expand on my websites content. 

 

I want a search feature added to the top of the page list so we can quickly type in the pages name and edit them without having to scroll all the way down the list.

Navigation Hiding

It would be great if I could hide the navigation on a page. For fancy homepages that say "enter site". Or if you want to use your site within a building at a kiosk and you don't want people navigating off of the page you set it to. IE Signups, information pages, 

Main Blog Page Collapse

Status: New Idea
by AbbyCampbell ‎03-04-2016 06:36 AM - edited ‎03-11-2016 06:24 AM

While Weebly allows us to feature a certain number of blogs on the main blog page, I would like to see an option for collapsing the blogs on those pages. For instance, I would like my readers to be able to come to my page and see more titles with a short description and smaller picture. They can then click on the title of their choosing to read the full blog. In addition, it would be nice to be able to do something similar in the blog sidebar. Please see the picture below to see what I mean.

Header padding + Header Height

Status: New Idea
by Creature on ‎04-17-2016 05:54 PM - last edited on ‎04-27-2016 10:24 AM by Employee Moderator

I hate how tall the "short header" < smallest header option available is. Can we please have control over adjusting the header height manually so we can have a non-one size fits all approach to building our websites? Also, can we please have the more control for adjusting the padding around headers. I have a coupon code at the top of every page in my store and it is floating in a horribly awkward sea of white space because A. The short header is too dang tall B. Padding is out of control around headers

 

Please give us more controls with headers. Also, I have said it before, but I will say it again. The Weebly store has ISSUES. There is no way to create a header on one page in a store and copy and paste it to other pages in the store. Why???!!!! That is extremely inconvenient! Headers with all other pages outside of the store interface can easily be copied to other non-store pages. Give us the same control with Store Pages Please!

Don't add blank pages with Non Clickable Menu's

Status: Please, Tell Us More.

As a website designer, I want Non Clickable Menu's to not be made with a blank page.

 

Currently, you can make the non clickable menu dropdown and it can't be clicked on, however, a working blank page also gets created. If we create a Non Clickable Menu named Example, a website/example page also gets created. This means a visitor can stumble upon a blank page on our website through URL. There's not much we can really do about it, besides removing the non clickable menu altogether.

Status: Please, Tell Us More.

This feature worked like this originally, though we eventually changed it so it doesn't make a new blank page. Have you added a non-clickable page in a while? You might need to just delete and remake them to solve this.
