Copying among 2 sites

Status: New Idea
by JVO yesterday - last edited yesterday by Community Manager

Can anyone help me?

I have 2 sites with weebly. Is it possible to copy some pages from my site to my other site without recreating the pages and searching for the pictures and so one.....?

Thanks for your feedback,

social networking icons

Status: New Idea
by KateDouglas Wednesday - last edited yesterday by Community Manager

I'd really like more choices for social networking icons that can be added to the header. Instagram, Goodreads, BookBub--these are sites that I and a lot of other authors use to promote our books, and it's frustrating that I can't choose the ones I want, or adjust the size. The Twitter, Facebook, email and YouTube icons are so small that it's impossible to tell what the YouTube one even is. I'd love to see more options.

Store Locator

Status: New Idea
by Will1 Wednesday - last edited yesterday by Community Manager

I would like it if Weebly had the ability to create a simple 'Store Locator' for wholesale businesses who go to market utilising a distribution network.  You would be familiar with entering your post code and the tool finding the closest retailer to you who stocks the product/brand you are after.

 

Thanks

NEW APP

Status: New Idea
by AtulaSK_1696 Wednesday - last edited yesterday by Community Manager

Why can't we add a(n) Snapchat, Instagram, Tumblr, Twitter, Kik, Messages, Whatsapp, or Pinterest apps, for our users to go on to those links and add the website to whichever ones they have? We gain more users that way.

Making emails available on Blogs

Status: New Idea
by ljdavis Wednesday - last edited yesterday by Community Manager

I would like to be able to run giveaways on my blog and capture the emails submitted, rather than having to pay huge amounts of money to some outside source to run the giveaway for me. How about you make it possible to capture emails on blog posts?

vertical aspect ratio for slideshow

Status: New Idea
by jeanecummings yesterday - last edited yesterday by Community Manager

Recently I wanted to use the slideshow on a website however, the photos that I selected to display were vertical photos.  Since the only aspect ratio options are horizontal in nature, there was a lot of blank space to the left and right of the photos.  This affects the visual aesthetics of the website.  There is no possible way to reduce the amount of this space and I spent several hours searching different comments and posts on the subject to try to find a way around it.  Please add a vertical ratio to the photo format options for slideshows.  I believe this would be extremely helpful!

It has come to my attention that when I post a sentence in the header my logo size is severely restricted.  For example, I have a short quote I want to share that fits in one sentence and I put that in my "short header" then my logo size is quite small.  Even though it appears I have the option to resize my logo on "short headers" it does not allow me to do so and therefore squeeze the text into additional lines.

 

I agree a "short header" should have it's limitations.  However, what the website builder shows me and implies is that it is capable of allowing me to resize my logo so that with a short sentence of text and a "short header" I could have a larger logo instead of one that is infinitesimal (very small).

So the workaround is to say the same thing you wanted to with fewer words than you would really like to use so that you can have a large logo on a "short header."

Status: Alternative Suggestion Provided

If I'm looking at the correct site in your account, you have your logo in a column to the left and header text in the column to the right. Mouse over the divider between the two, then click on drag it to the right. This will make your logo larger and the text to the right wrap so it takes up less horizontal space.

Change the Drop Down Tabs to a different color to highlight movement.

Also,  change TABS to a different color PAGES

The possibily to add for example single tweets, instagram posts, Facebook posts directly onto weebly - like you can do on medium.com

We have some apps in our App Center which could do what you need, @jacobssonrobert:

Blank Theme

Status: Alternative Suggestion Provided
by LadyJuse Monday - last edited Tuesday by Community Manager

I was thinking that it might be a good idea if Weebly offered a blank theme or at least a way for users to easily make their own custom themes. Using my own HTML files, I feel like I have been barred from using certain features...

Status: Alternative Suggestion Provided

The easiest way to develop a theme is to take one of ours and export it. It's a simple way to have something which is structurally compatible with Weebly.

The Image Editor App MUST show pixel dimensions!

Status: New Idea
by happymedium27 2 weeks ago - last edited a week ago 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?

A single button that links to multiple buy buttons

Status: New Idea
by KateDouglas Tuesday - last edited Wednesday by Community Manager

I'm wondering if you already offer such a thing--I'm an author and I want to list all of my books on a single page (there are a lot of them from multiple publishers) and do it the way they're set up in BookBub.com. On that site, I can click on a single button that says "Buy Book" and it brings up a small box with links to Amazon, BN, Kobo, iBooks, & Google Play.

 

All I'm looking for is a way to bring up a simple list of buttons that I can add links to. Does such a creature exist with Weebly?

 

thank you!

PHP Support

Status: Duplicate
by Aristophanes88 Tuesday - last edited Tuesday by Community Manager

You should offer this.

Status: Duplicate

It looks like this was posted earlier to our Vote on Features board - I'd recommend adding kudos to this post to show support for it:

 

https://community.weebly.com/t5/Vote-on-Features/PHP-support/idi-p/24866

Hi, I am a food blogger-new to Weebly, and would like to be able to use an app or plug-in to create and share recipes with my readers. It would be great to be able to use the same format with each recipe: for example a photo of the finished product, a title of the recipe, how long it takes to make, how many it serves, ingredients and directions. I would also like my readers to be able to download, print, email and share my recipes to social media. Is this possible on Weebly? You could create a Weebly theme specific to food bloggers with this feature! Thank you.  

Paypal has the customers details, so for customers paying with paypal, they should be able to skip the form filling and just pay with Paypal.

Being able to purchase something quickly is a must have feature and if it's not going to be adressed it makes me weary of sticking with weebly in the future.

COD and a payment gateway we can choose

Status: Duplicate
by NSINewZealand Tuesday - last edited Tuesday by Community Manager

This is not a new subject but I am going over old ground as the lack of response by Weebly on this is not acceptable. We want a COD and an option to use our own payment gateways. I put this up a year ago with no answer from Weebly explaining why this cannot be implemented, if you can set up what you currently do you can set this up.

One thing I have seen is this idea comes up regulary and all Weebly does is marks it as a duplicate, yes it might be duplicated but the reason why it keeps on coming up is that it is a MUST for an Ecommerce site. Other website builders allow it why not Weebly?

 

Please answer these questions below Weebly:

 

Why do we not have a COD option?

Why do we not have an option to use our own payment gateway?

Status: Duplicate

We have an older post on Vote on Features for COD that I recommend adding kudos to, @NSINewZealand:

 

https://community.weebly.com/t5/Vote-on-Features/Offline-Payment-for-store/idi-p/1901

 

Also, I would recommend making a separate post for any particular payment provider you want to use, since it would need to implemented on an individual basis.

The title says it all. I submitted this a year ago, still no movement.

 

What the heck? No individual gets turned off by a "Buisness Name" line in the checkout... but every Buisness On Earth treats me like I don't actually do B2B sales!

 

Cmon Weebly! I love you! You are the ones who taught me how easy it is to drop that line into the checkout shipping address and billing address! Just make it a priority please!

Status: Duplicate

It looks like this was posted earlier in a similar Vote on Features post, so I'm going to close this as a duplicate so everyone votes on one topic:

Automated Follow Up

Status: New Idea
by auntbe a week ago - last edited a week ago by Community Manager

I would like a way to create an automated follow up letter that is delivered 3 weeks after an online purchase. This would check on how the customer is enjoying their urchase, ask for a review and give them a link to do so and also to make other product recommendations based on their purchases.

bulk Price editing

Please Please enable something where we can bulk price change. I have over 400 items and most of them have many options. It is a nightmare to change prices. 

Colourful, fun and funky templates

Status: New Idea
by InspiredCakes Monday - last edited Monday by Community Manager

Hello There, 

 

I currently am a client of weebly, and I have to say, it's been a bit disapponting for me, when it comes to templates. 

 

Can you please create more fun, colourful and yet professional templates, that moms like me, trying to build a business can use? I run a cake studio. 

 

Thank you.
