Facebook Share Button

Status: Please, Tell Us More.
by JohnBornsworth a month ago - last edited a month ago by Community Manager

We're currently entering Embeded Code into all our blogs to activate a "Facebook Share" button. The code is generated from Facebook: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/share-button

 

We'd love this option just embeded into all our blogs from the get-go. There is currently a "Twitter Share" button on the bottom of all our blogs. Our clients are not the twiting variety and seem to be on Facebook much more. Plus, the content we have in our blogs just isn't in the twit style.

 

Facebook Share button please!

Just to clarify - you're looking to have a Facebook button specific for sharing instead of the Like button that can be added right now (via the option in Settings > Blog)?

why not let us create our own theme from scratch/ a blank page

Status: Please, Tell Us More.

Are you looking to have a totally plain theme with no styling, or create a site that doesn't have any content pre-populated?

Currently, there is no way to actually make it possible for new members for your website to connect to membership specified pages, they have to be set up for the admin to do it for every new member.  Could we get an option to just have it automatic?

Have you turned on the Registration option for Members, @delta2196? You can set that up to automatically add people to groups, too.

I think it would be an awesome idea to have a timeline element, where you can drag pictures, videos, text, and other media to create a timeline. The timeline could be still or moving, both options would be great.

 

For example, on my site I would use it to showcase donations and fundraising events for the charity I volunteer for.

Don't add blank pages with Non Clickable Menu's

As a website designer, I want Non Clickable Menu's to not be made with a blank page.

 

Currently, you can make the non clickable menu dropdown and it can't be clicked on, however, a working blank page also gets created. If we create a Non Clickable Menu named Example, a website/example page also gets created. This means a visitor can stumble upon a blank page on our website through URL. There's not much we can really do about it, besides removing the non clickable menu altogether.

This feature worked like this originally, though we eventually changed it so it doesn't make a new blank page. Have you added a non-clickable page in a while? You might need to just delete and remake them to solve this.

Hello.
I would like in my site meteo, to be able to send data collected from my computer, is it possible?

Status: Please, Tell Us More.

I'm not sure what you mean, @Joël. Are you looking to gather more detailed statistics from your site visitors?

Feature Requests - Daily Deal App

As I love Weebly but this platform is making it hard for me to maintain, so I've been shopping around and on Shopify they have a daily deal app that I love and wish Weebly could offer this app as well. My renewal is in April and I need to make a decision soon. Is it possible to get this type of app for Weebly?

Status: Please, Tell Us More.

Just to clarify, you're looking for something that would take an item from your store and put it on sale as a daily deal automatically?

When placing a file to have visitors download documents, the pdf/doc should open in a new window

Did you mean when making a link with an image, button, or text link, or with the File element?

Pagination of blosts

I have been told to post here. Please provide pagination of blog posts. Wordpress has it.

 

Thank you

Status: Please, Tell Us More.

We automatically paginate blog posts when you have more than a certain number (you can control this in Settings > Blog). Was there some other kind of pagination you were thinking we should add?

With the growth of the community, there seem to be an increasing number of duplicate posts. It would be helpful if community members had a way to flag a duplicate post and associate it with the existing one.

 

I would encourage you to empower active community members as much as possible to keep the community helpful for everyone.

 

Also, before adding a post, does Lithium's platform have a way to check against previous posts to avoid potential duplication?

Status: Please, Tell Us More.

Other than searching I don't know that there's a way to see if a similar thing has been posted at the time of creating a post.  Are you thinking of posts to the Vote on Features board in specific, or just the board in general?

Currently, the only way to use the Weebly API is if you use OAuth and connect to a backend service. There are a couple of apps I might want to deelop, but I neither have the capacity to host a backend service or have the desire to take on the liability of having access to other site's APIs when I have no need of it. If I'm using the API from within the site (either as a designer or through an app) you should not need to use OAuth, and if you're a designer you probably shouldn't need an API key either.

Status: Please, Tell Us More.

Hi there,

 

Can you tell us a bit more about what you'd want to do with the API? We use OAuth to authenticate access to the API, and I'd like to understand how you imagine using the API from within Weebly itself -- are you thinking of a JavaScript-based API to do something like embed a list of blog posts?

An app that lets you add code. Not just html. C C+ C++ C# Java and more.

Status: Please, Tell Us More.

Did you want this to just display the code properly formatted, or for it to actually excute the code?

Sigining Up tools

by Shvan 3 weeks ago - last edited 3 weeks ago by Community Manager

What I have noticed on Weebly, is that the option of signing up and sigining in for my website is very limited. Please provide more options to edit the signing up and signing in texts and looks and where I want to place them on the website.

Status: Please, Tell Us More.

Any particular types of login methods you'd like to see added, @Shvan?

I'm not sure what you mean by "format painter", @Liseli. Could you provide a little more info on what you'd like us to add?
