Can we get blog categories to display under each post? For example, like this forum where all the categories I've tagged display under the post so I can click to see other posts tagged with the same.
I would also like this option combined with the option to not have them all displayed along the side so when I'm tagging recipes I don't have 100 categories along the side and instead just have the categories tagged shown under the specific post.
Hello! I would like to see better page break options on blog posts. I like the uniform look on some blogging platforms that allow you to give just a snippet of a paragraph or sentence. With Weebly, I'm forced to break between drag and drop items. This doesn't allow me to show less than a full paragraph, which could be of varying lengths or my other option is to break a paragraph which then adds a space in publishing. This would be a nice feature to see!
I often need to link to a page of my website which isn't in my site's navigation menu (a hidden landing page, for example) and as of right now the only way to obtain the URL is to temporarily include the page in my site's URL, publish the site, and grab the URL by navigating to the page in a web browser.
It seems there should be a simple way to grab the URL for any page of my site without having to go through this hack.
I recently noticed how slow my website was loading, just before I was about to share it with a potential business investor and decided to perform a website speed test (https://tools.pingdom.com). The over all rating it received was a C. Only faster than about 28% of all websites out there. So my website is SLOWER than 72% of all websites. WTH!
Here are some of the issues it pointed out as reason for it being slow, apparently the worst ones:
Parallelize downloads across hostnames (not utilizing) Grade: 0/F
Leverage browser caching (bunch of things can be improved) Grade: 39/F
Weebly, Please improve the poor load performance of our websites due to site editor issues. Again, I noticed how slow it was loading, which prompted me to find out what the hell the problem was and run a load test on my site. I have had multiple issues with how slow my website loads after switching to weebly and I have reported it before, with zero customer service or care from Weebly. Please update what can be updated to improve the load time.
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

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.

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.

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.
I ran my website through Google's little test (https://testmysite.thinkwithgoogle.com/) and found that my website is rated very slow (45/100 mobile and 54/100 desktop). After looking into the suggestions I discovered that most of them are beyond my control - such as Enable GZIP Compression and Leverage Browser Caching, which was already suggested here:
I'd like to see these suggestions implemented into Weebly. I feel like if I am paying for Weebly to host my site I should expect it to be quick and perform well in these tests, thats why I'm paying you and not hosting it myself right?
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?

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.
When trying to get images to be the exact same size, it can be frustrating trying to drag the corner of the image and get to the exact pixel number. It would be much easier if you could type in one of the dimensions and have it appropriately resize the image.

It would be great if we could publish specific pages without publishing everything. For example, if someone is working on two pages and one is now done, that page could be published without everything being published. We could have a list of the pages and click those we want published. Or we could have two buttons. One for "publish this page" (the one you are on) and one for "publish everything".
