Changing the Filename of uploaded images (For better SEO)

Status: Hurray! We're Done!
by kvdweijden on ‎05-25-2016 10:46 AM - last edited on ‎06-02-2016 03:27 PM by Employee Moderator

Hey, 

 

Google has a lot of ways to check if your site is relevant to the keywords that users are searching with. One of these ways is to check the URL path of images. For example, when a page would be www.example.com/candle.jpg, the image "candle" would appear in google images and also Google recognises this page "example.com" does something with candles, and therefore the pageranking will increase on the word "candle". 

 

When you upload an image to your Weebly page, Weebly changes the name of the image you're uploading. So when I upload an image with the name "Candle.jpg", Weebly changes this to for eaxmple "2373015_orig.jpg". This is not the most optimal thing for SEO. Allthough it's possible to change the ALT tag of the image (you can make ALT="Candle"), it would be much better if the filename itself would be candle.jpg as well. This would realy fill google images with your images. 

 

So for the best ranking in search engines it is absolutely necessary to be able to control the name of the images. I sugest Weebly is making it possible to control the filename for a better SEO!

Hi, @kvdweijden!

 

Thank you so much for your suggestion. Our Product Team loved the idea, and they have just made it a reality. Please check out the new feature, and let me know if you have any additional feedback.

 

Thanks again, and enjoy your day!

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

Status: We're Considering It.

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!

Having .html at the end of every page seems antiquated makes the site seem less professional. I understand that the pages will still load and redirect if the .html is left off, but it would look much cleaner if they could be left off completely.

 

I would also like to see the option to have the 'www' removed from the URLs. Rather than redirect the non-www version to the www version, I would like to have the opposite.

Fix the Page Navigation in Editor / Collapsible Pages

Status: New Idea

When editting a site with anything more than a few pages, the lefthand page navigation becomes very unwieldy. At the very least there should be a way to collapse nested pages. This is another example of something in Weebly very basic I can't believe needs to be suggested.

Product Sorting!!!

I would like to see options and enhancements for the Products Section. I want to be able to sort my products alphabetically, as well as see what is in and out of stock through drop-down filtration.

Filtered Search Box

Status: New Idea

Having different products or services should be made easier to find by our customer with an advance search box facility.  Search box should have filters such as find by postcode, country etc.  Currently, Weebly does have a have search box but its basic and searches the whole site. A search box with filters of data will be very useful to have on our sites as it organises products and service easier to find.  

Custom Text Box Element

Status: New Idea
by WorkingWebsites on ‎02-21-2016 11:14 PM

I'd like to see Weebly add a custom text element that allowed us to choose atrributes such as:

  • Background Colour and opacity
  • Border Style, radius, colour and thickness
  • Text size and colour

 

It would have to be a non global element (the settings you choose would only apply to that particular element) and completely separate to the standard weebly text element.

 

While you can achieve what I'm talking about by using the embed code widget and styling your own DIV element in your themes main css file, it would be a lot quicker and easier if such a widget was available from the drag n drop editor menu, especially useful for those people that don't know CSS and HTML coding.

Statistics

It would be great to be able to exclude yourself from site statistics.

 

> SECURITY OPTION: Two-Factor Authentication

Hello...

When logging-in to Weebly.com, I'd like to have the option to enable Two-Factor Authentication (6 digit code sent via text to mobile phone).

I realize that this may not be a simple request. However, it would add another layer of protection to help safeguard all of the websites stored within our Weebly account.

Thank you for pondering the idea ;-)

Hello, I think I am not the only one that asked this future before. Is Weebly thinking about introducing this option soon? Many sites need this option. We are not living all in the USA and a business site needs often this future. Thank you!

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.

Currency Conversion Tool

Status: New Idea
by AdamC on ‎04-21-2016 05:06 PM - last edited on ‎04-27-2016 02:23 PM by Employee Moderator

We do quite a bit of international orders and depending on each country the currency exchange can be either higher or lower than the dollar. That being said, it would be nice to have a conversion tool so customers can see exactly how much it is based in their region, so later on they don't notice a huge price difference and demand a refund. 

Superscript/Subscript Feature

Import Weebly Site from another Weebly account.

Status: New Idea
by BenMiles on ‎04-20-2016 07:47 PM - last edited on ‎04-27-2016 10:27 AM by Employee Moderator

I would like the ability to not only export my site but also to be able to import it too. For example, I have a Weebly Pro account and so does my wife. It seems silly to be paying tfor two accounts when I can merge them and manage all our websites from the one account. Sorry Weebly - but times are tough and it's money I could be investing in addons, etc instead.

I know the formatting might be messed up but if we could perhaps create the site, prepare it as much as we could by choosing the theme from the other account, etc and then import the site maybe that would work. Osviously blogs seem to be an anomaly and never carry across to site copies or exports for some reason. But it should be possible for the general pages.

 

What do you guys think? Has this subject been raised before?

Web Page title

Status: New Idea
by dottoredentale on ‎04-14-2016 01:31 PM - last edited on ‎04-19-2016 01:55 PM by Community Manager

Please allow to the users to customize web page title text or web page logo

 

For example in logo you can have 70 font but it shrinks to way smaller font when you save it and publish,...

 

also when you change it to text you are unable to choose text font and colour? whats with that...

 

Weebly lets be more competitive, please allow more options on web title section as you have for regular text boxes.

 

Thank you in advance,

Alen

Auto Notify When Auto-Renewal is disabled

Status: New Idea
by grossmusic on ‎05-29-2016 03:30 PM - last edited on ‎06-03-2016 12:39 PM by Employee Moderator

Right now it's either AUTO RENEW or CANCEL.

 

Need the choice to NOT auto renew AND receive an automatic notification at least 1 week to 1 month prior to expiration date.

 

Simple.

 

Agree?

"Sandbox" or development environment

Status: New Idea
by furnaceX on ‎07-05-2016 02:34 PM - last edited on ‎07-07-2016 04:45 PM by Employee Moderator

Create a development environment that allows users to try out feature (and features of the higher-level packages) without needing to pay for two website.  For example, if I already have a paid account and site, I may want to make a copy of that site and do major changes/upgrades to it before making it "public".  I may want to understand and experiement with how the customer account features work. Once I've made the changes and have it all working, I would redirect my URL from the old site to the new site.  And the old site would no longer be active.

 

The development environment could have an obtrusive watermark, disabled transactions, password protected, hidden from search engines, weebly subdomain only, etc.

 

And this is a great way for customers to learn about more advanced features in the the higher account levels. Once they build in the feature, they will understand it and be more apt to upgrade. 

 

Editor Access

by glamcompjewelry on ‎04-03-2016 10:48 AM - last edited on ‎04-19-2016 03:02 PM by Community Manager

I would like to be able to limit the access of my site editors so that they are unable to see my account info, stats, sales, store dashboard etc. Weebly should change the access limitations so that they are more specific, so that the site/business owners can protect their private information - only allowing the site editors to make changes to the pages & look of the site.

to save or not to save

Status: New Idea
by donnat on ‎05-17-2016 07:24 AM - last edited on ‎05-17-2016 07:27 AM by Employee Moderator

i highly recommend giving users the option to save or not save any work done.  currently, your site does that automatically.  i just went through support to help locate a vanishing element. support could not determine what happened or could the missing material be found.  if automatic save was NOT a feature, then it is highly likely that i could return to the original document before the vanishing act occurred.

 

needless to say i am not a happy right now, i am faced with having to recreate all that work or use a different vendor's product.
