Undo Button

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

Customizing Checkout Experience To Our Own Preferences!

Status: New Idea

It would be great if we can customize our checkout fields to the way we want just like the contact forms and survey form elements. For instance, there are some fields that come by default such as Region and Zip which are pretty lame and unwanted for me, and so I would like to remove them from letting the user enter such information as they won't benefit me at all. Nevertheless, we should have the ability to also insert as many fields as we like in case there are some mandatory fields not placed in the default checkout. Furthermore, it would also be nice if we can have a tick box below the fields that states the user to save his/her credentials locally on their PC the next time they come to checkout so that they won't need to retype everything again. It would surely bring better sales for my business for minimizing and reducing the hassles. Last but not least, it would be super great if we can specify different rates for different shipping method services, ex: the user selects/picks from a drop-down "Express Shipping / Standard Shipping / Royal Shipping / Same-Day Shipping / International Shipping, and so on..." We can define these names to our own liking as well as set different charge fees for each. Well, nough said. If I had missed anything, then don't hesitate to comment below. All feedback is much appreciated. Smiley Wink

Access to image directory / File Manager

Status: New Idea
by cloonans on ‎02-26-2016 09:08 AM - last edited on ‎05-15-2016 10:18 AM by Community Manager

In other CMS platforms, the user has the ability to scroll through their image directory, so if you need an image again or on another page in the site, you can just reference it just like we already have the ability to do with files.  Currently, as far as I can tell, the only way to reference a previously used image is to find it on the site and use the URL or to upload it again.  Especially with photos, it would be nice not to have to keep the original files on a hard drive once they've been uploaded to the site.  I've had a few times where i had to search through blog histories to find a file I needed a year later.  If the image directory was easily available, I could have just selected the file from a list.

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! 

Accounts for Customers

Status: It's in Our Queue.
by millimil on ‎03-12-2016 11:06 AM

Hello,

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.

Changing the Filename of uploaded images (For better SEO)

Status: Hurray! We're Done!
by kvdweijden on ‎05-25-2016 10:46 AM - last edited on ‎06-02-2016 03:27 PM by Employee Moderator

Hey, 

 

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!

Hi, @kvdweijden!

 

Thank you so much for your suggestion. Our Product Team loved the idea, and they have just made it a reality. Please check out the new feature, and let me know if you have any additional feedback.

 

Thanks again, and enjoy your day!

MEGA MENU NAVIGATION

Status: New Idea
by DanielJCartier on ‎07-03-2016 02:07 PM - last edited on ‎07-07-2016 05:23 PM by Employee Moderator

Make themes with Mega-Menu Navigation!

I've talked to Weebly staff about this on numerous occasions and they tell me it's a feature people have requested. What "Mega Menu" means is that when you click on a menu header - a box opens up containing the entire menu navigation for that header. As websites become larger, it's a feature more clients are requesting. It makes large websites much easier to navigate. I've attatched some photo examples pulled from the web to demonstrate what I mean. :-)

 

 

Mega Menu #0

 

 

Mega Menu #1

 

Mega Menu #2

 

 

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! 

Having an UNDO, REDO, HISTORY feature

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

Pre-publish feature

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

have more than 30 days of stats for visitors so you know if your site is tanking or expanding its user base. This is basic stuff people please upvote. 

Ability to Publish Single Pages

Status: New Idea
by kj on ‎03-31-2016 04:20 AM - last edited on ‎04-19-2016 03:07 PM by Community Manager

I'd like to publish single pages. Right now when you click publish, all changes get published.

Bulk Editing: Move/Copy/Delete multiple elements at one time!

Status: Alternative Suggestion Provided
by dp1 on ‎05-18-2016 08:01 AM - last edited on ‎05-18-2016 10:03 AM by Employee Moderator

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.

Subscription Feature

Status: We're Considering It.
by Carl on ‎04-05-2016 10:32 AM - last edited on ‎04-19-2016 02:56 PM by Community Manager

I'd like the ability to offer paid monthly subscriptions to customers. I feel that offering something like a pre-purchase for example a year, ends up being such a high value that people are deterred from the store.

Status: We're Considering It.

Thanks for the suggestion! Although we aren't working on it right now, this is something I could see us building in the future.

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?

Blog post archive collapsible by year

Status: New Idea
by eyepop on ‎03-23-2016 11:41 AM - last edited on ‎03-30-2016 12:00 PM by Employee Moderator

I would like to have an option to collapse my blog archive by year instead of having all the posts arranged by month. That would free up much space in the sidebar.CBA.png

Membership Page Customization

I would love to see the membership login/signup pages editable by the weebly editor! This would be amazing!

Remember Repeat Customer Info

Status: Duplicate
by socofarm on ‎09-16-2016 01:03 PM

My customers complain that they have to type in all of their information everytime they place an order which is normally once a week. If they have registered with the site or created a login, why can't their address, phone etc appear in the checkout area automatically.

Preview pages

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