What new features and improvements to Weebly do you want to see?
Post your ideas and cool stuff you want us to make here. Check out our submission guidelines.

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.

 

Thanks!

 

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!

 

Thank you!

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.

Weebly Websites need faster performance

Status: New Idea
by Creature a week ago - last edited Thursday

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. Smiley Sad 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

 

Combine external JavaScript (room for improvement)
Grade: 40/F

 

There are 6 JavaScript files served from cdn2.editmysite.com. They should be combined into as few files as possible.

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.

Undo Button

Status: We're Working on It.
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

Be able to edit the mobile version separately from the desktop version

Hi there,

This is very important, because my name looks perfect on desktop website & BULKY on MOBILE website.

 

Thanks

We really appreciate the support for this idea! The Weebly team is considering now, and hopefully we will hear an update soon.

Pre-publish feature

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

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.  

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

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.

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!

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!

Website Features

Status: New Idea
by zafiraimpex on ‎02-02-2017 09:08 AM - last edited on ‎02-02-2017 10:27 AM by Community Manager

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.

 

 

Ability to Change Button Color

Status: We're Considering It.
by cmoodie124 on ‎03-29-2016 12:17 PM - last edited on ‎03-30-2016 11:12 AM by Community Manager

I am using the Lucent theme and it appears you can change the color of absolutely everything, except the Buttons. So now my site is blue and green, but my buttons remain gold. 

Vertical dividers

Status: Alternative Suggestion Provided
by Perre on ‎04-22-2016 03:25 AM - last edited on ‎04-27-2016 10:02 AM by Employee Moderator

Hi, Why do we have horizontal dividers but no vertical dividers?

 

I would like to spilt pages in two with a vertical divider. But no such option that I can see.

 

Surely Weebly can fix that quickly?

Enable GZIP Compression

Status: New Idea
by SioWolf on ‎03-22-2017 07:45 PM - last edited on ‎03-23-2017 11:43 AM by Community Manager

As suggested by: https://community.weebly.com/t5/SEO/Enable-gzip-compression/m-p/23682#M998 I am posting this here in the Vote on Features section.

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:

https://community.weebly.com/t5/Vote-on-Features/Ability-to-quot-leverage-browser-caching-quot-Test-...

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?

The Image Editor App MUST show pixel dimensions!

Status: New Idea
by happymedium27 on ‎04-17-2017 03:05 PM - last edited on ‎04-18-2017 08:06 AM 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?

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!

TEXT OVERLAY OVER IMAGES THAT STAYS VISIBLE

Status: New Idea
by JayL on ‎04-01-2017 05:42 AM - last edited on ‎04-02-2017 08:26 AM 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.

 

 

Exact image resizing

Status: New Idea
by BizTechCoaching on ‎09-13-2016 11:38 AM

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.

Publish Certain Pages Separately

Status: New Idea
by JoyfulMeadow on ‎06-10-2017 12:55 PM - last edited on ‎06-11-2017 06:55 AM by Community Manager

Hi,

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".

 

Thanks!
