The Image Editor App MUST show pixel dimensions!

Status: New Idea
by happymedium27 2 weeks ago - last edited 2 weeks ago by Community Manager

I know I used to be able to see x/y pixel dimensions when resizing an uploaded image. Now I can't. This is a critical feature for insuring consistently sized graphics across the site. One should not be expected to eyeball the pixel width and height of an image. It was here before - can't you bring it back?

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!

Editing pages when in Mobile view

Suggestion: Make it possible to edit site pages seen in the mobile view, without, at the same time, changing the site pages in the web view.

One of the Weebly “Settings” – “Mobile” for a website is to check or uncheck “Display the mobile-optimized version of this website when someone visits from a mobile device.” When this choice is checked (enabled) in the Settings, and the website is viewed by a user, in the bottom footer area is shown: Version: Mobile Web.   On a mobile device, the Mobile Version is shown, but the Web version can be chosen instead by the user. When Mobile choice in Settings is not checked (not enabled), the viewer on a mobile device will only see the Web version.

When making edits to a website page, an icon in the upper right corner, left of “PUBLISH,” can be clicked on to switch from the Web view to the Mobile view. In the Mobile view, a different Theme can be chosen to be more suitable for a mobile device.

However, I have found that editing changes made while in the Mobile view also change the Web view. I believe such editing changes should be independent between views – a change made in the Mobile view should not change the page in the Web view.

Save previous version of your website. encase you make a mistake, get hack & deleted etc

 

Wix have this feature. Its really good. You can literally go back to any single change you ever made. And its easy to navigate. My worst fear is putting so much time and effort into a website, then have someone steal your password to do irreversible damage at your expense.  

TEXT OVERLAY OVER IMAGES THAT STAYS VISIBLE

Status: New Idea
by JayL a month ago - last edited 4 weeks ago by Community Manager

Users need the ability to place text freely overtop of photos- and the ability to have the text "light up" when you cursor hovers over the image- BUT THE TEXT STILL STAYS VISIBLE WHEN YOU MOVE THE CURSOR AWAY FROM THE IMAGE. As it is now, you can have text appear as you hover over an image- but when you move the cursor away- the text totally disappears. SUPPOSE WE WANT THE TEXT TO STAY VISIBLE ON THE IMAGE? You shouldn't have to go through so much labor creating your own text image to place on top of photos . As it is now,you have to create the text as a separate image and then bring it in to Weebly.

 

 

Seperate Mobile Editing

You need to be able to seperately edit a mobile site without changing the desktop site. Your responsive themes don't adapt properly unless you simplify your website way too much. Lots of people are complaining about this. At least give the option to turn off the mobile website. I don't want to have to change to another hosting service.

Having an UNDO, REDO, HISTORY feature

Weebly is great but would be better with an undo, redo, history feature. 

Please include the features of the old image editor in the updated one

Status: New Idea
by Judy1 on ‎01-02-2017 02:38 PM - last edited on ‎01-02-2017 03:06 PM by Community Manager

When the people at Weebly updated the image editor, they dropped the option of adding and layering extra images in the image editor. This means in my case that I have to prepare my images in Photoshop before uploading, which takes extra time, and can only be done when I'm editing with my PC. 

Athough the old image editor was a bit slow, it had much better features: a larger 'canvas'; the ability to resize images, and the ability to upload and layer multiple images to create new pictures.

Please add these really convenient features back into the image editor.

Website Features

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.

 

 

Undo Button

by mandismuses on ‎02-26-2016 10:29 PM

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

I would love to be able to preview pages before publishing them. Any chance of that happening soon?

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.

(Sorry for my English Smiley Wink)

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! 

Border visualizer button

Status: New Idea
by RickkerdBult on ‎03-14-2017 12:27 AM - last edited on ‎03-14-2017 09:28 AM by Community Manager

Button which visualizes all item borders so that you can edit your site easier and so you can see invisible items (which you lost and keeps filling unnecessary space on your page XD).

 

The button is useful for almost everything 

Pre-publish feature

It would be very helpful to have a pre-publish feature to check links, forms, email, etc before going live.

Please have an undo button. Sometimes by mistake you delete a text or a picture. It will be much easy and convenient to undo the last action. Wix.com has that feature.

Advantages of PHP 

1 you can completly create forums

2 communities as well

3 mysql databases will give u an extreme push u can give users : memberships ,social networks , apps and many features

4 PHP as u know is a server side language that means u can control almost every thing like extensions , paths and .....

5 PHP will work perfectly with the drag & drop system the php will be used as a backend so u can manage ur website and html /css/js will work as usual as a frontend

Let us use relative paths for hyperlinks

Status: New Idea
by EthanTaylor a month ago - last edited a month ago by Community Manager

For example, in a blog post, when I want to add a hyperlink which links to category "SEO", I currently have to specify an absolute path "http://myfirstwebsite.weebly.com/home/category/seo" for that hyperlink.

 

The trouble appears if I decide to change my site URL from ""http://myfirstwebsite.weebly.com/" to "http://mysecondwebsite.weebly.com" in the future because I will have to go back to that blog post and manually change the site URL in the path of that hyperlink. It becomes even more troublesome if there are hundreds of such hyperlinks to handle.

 

Wouldn't it be convenient if we can specify relative path like "/home/category/seo" for our hyperlinks so that we don't have to worry about the path issue if we decide to change our site URLs in the future?
