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!
I operate an online shop and have been quite pleased with the ease of use and ability to edit quickly when I'm busy.
Well, my customers have asked many times if they can look at past orders, see the tracking info, set up subcription payment plan etc. This would be a wonderful feature for those of us with online shops or business.

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.

I have a site with hundreds of pages, and every time I create a new page I have to drag it to where it needs to go. It would be nice to have a better hierarchical format to make this easier. The ability to expand and collapse would be so helpful!
Now that Chrome has been updated to basically shame websites that are not secured, it would be good to have the option to purchase and enable HTTPS/SSL for any paid site since this is a best practice for SEO. I saw in another community post that there are no plans at this time to make this option available for anything below the Business package but I hope that is reconsidered if there is enough user support. Weebly is a great platform and keeps getting better, but it would be unfortunate to have to accept that using Weebly means that you will not be able to adhere to certain SEO best practices.

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.

It would be great, if weebly had apps that were user friendly for Australians that use this program.
It is easy to use, but because I am not in the UK, US or Canada. I can not print out shipping labels.
Getting with the times, and allowing us to access Afterpay, which is becoming huge here in Australia, or even a lay a way (we call it layby app) would be great to have.
I have just started my business on this site, and I am losing sales, as most of my customer base love my products, and used to buy from me, well before my website, yet even though they are having a look, because there is no layby feature or afterpay, my customer base is really non existent, at the moment.
If these features are not implented soon, as i see that other australians have asked for this as far back as 2014 and still you cant seem to get with the times. I might have to go to a website that caters for these two functions. I like weebly overall except it lacking in payment options.
I would love the contact form to have an option or an automatic feature where whatever information entered is automatically sent back to the original poster's email for their records, not just to the website owner. It would be great if the actual TEXT in option boxes was included too rather than just the numbers... ie. 1, 2, 3, 4.
I would love to be able to have my customers post reviews for each of my products. But, only if they have purchased the product It would have a star option and a place to enter a comment. Then a tag beside it that says, "Verified Purchase". Sorta like Amazon is doing. Then the star rating could then be shared along with the product to social media if the product is shared. This would make me so happy!

I have been waiting and waiting for this. When, oh when, will Weebly make this possible?? It is SO fundamental. Having to edit each element one at a time is extremely time-consuming. I have made at least 5 requests for it--2 by this feature request, and a few by phone. I notice that several other folks would like it, too, as there was at least one other post for it.
Seems to me it would work for several types of sites. Ours, for example, is a non-profit pet rescue organization, and we are constantly posting animals for adoption. As more pets are posted, some get deleted because they are adopted, and some need to be moved to a different spot on the page. I cringe every time this happens, which is very often. I am to the point where I am looking elsewhere for a company that has that feature. PLEASE make this happen soon! Thank you.
I know that the mobile site has an automatic zoom for the mobile site. I would like to have the ability to select a focal point in the header so that I can control which portion of my picture appears on the mobile site.
