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!
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.

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.
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.

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.

I would like to have the ability to delete old uploaded files that I no longer need. When I upload a file, it is VERY hard to find the one I want - I am a teacher and I upload new files on a daily/weekly basis. Thanks! This would be a great feature!
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?
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.

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.

I'd love to see the following added in the future:
Trash - when you delete a page it would go to the Trash and is only deleted when you empty the Trash. That way you can resurrect pages if you need too. The Trash could be emptied automatically after say 30 days or so so that space isn't being taken up by all the trashed pages
A separate section for Unpublished pages ie. pages that are a work in progress but are not yet ready for publication. I know you can Hide from Navigation, but it's not quite the same
Tags in addition to Categories in for Blog posts. Think of Tags as sub to Categories. Example, You may have a Category for Movies, but have Tags for the different movie titles. As of now, if you have a Category for each movie they would all end up under your Categories making the list become quite unwieldly. The Tags should also be searchable.

How about a function like timing a post but for publishing your site on a time. Like i want to publish my site tomorrow 9 pm but i have to do something at that time so i will let it publish automaticly.

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.
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.
