Ability to add a logo to confirmation emails

Status: New Idea
by MBenninger Wednesday - last edited Thursday by Employee Moderator

It would be great to be able to add our logo to the confirmation emails that are generated from the webstore. Seems odd that we have a beautiful website and when the customer purchases something they get a VERY boring order and download confirmation.

 

Thanks for putting this on the To-Do list!

 

Add a 'READ MORE' tab to blog postings to condese each post in order for users to view later posts and reduce scrolling.

Vote for this if you want your product images be found by search engines.

 

As much as I was excited about much needed and long asked for changes in file names of images, I am disappointed to learn that these changes do not apply to store/product images. (screaming WHY???)

 

I hope that the changes will be made to the product images too. If any of you have a shop on your site, you know what I am talking about.

 

 - most sites who use ecommerce are about selling products and getting images "out there". These sites don't just post pictures to gallery, they post pictures of products to their store.

 

- most sites who use ecommerce are paying for business plan. It means that most paying customers are at disadvantage now, because the change in picture URL does not apply to store images.

Hi,

 

currently the "read more break" element is only available on blog pages.

However, I have a lengthy text on a standard page I'd like to cut short. See lwml.de at the bottom of the page.

 

I would love if visitors interested in reading the full text were able to expand it on the same page using a "read more" button. It would be a very practical feature and clean up the visual impression of the page.

 

@Weebly: Can you make that build-element of the blog page available on standard pages?

 

Thanks,

Sebastian

Invoice Format

Status: New Idea
by VickiW 2 weeks ago

I print off an invoice to pack with each order. The Weebly invoice is, frankly, embarrassing. It doesn't even print my company name and I have no way to add any graphic header. Everything on the invoice is double spaced so it wastes tons of paper. If the customer orders more than 3 items the customer name box prints on  a second page. It is VERY easy to get these separated if you print multiple invoices.....something we all want to do every day! What we get now is basically a print screen and it's hideous.

 

The invoice needs to be completely redesigned. It needs:

- company name and logo options

- the customer name and address at the top

- more efficient use of space, eliminating much of the double spacing

 

Maybe there's something better that I haven't found on the site yet. If so, please let me know!

I would love to give some technical feedback.

There should be a zoom (lightbox) option for all images (jpgs) not just gallery pages. It would make for a much better viewer experience. 

Also UNDO is a no brainer! 


Thank you for your wonderful site. 

 

 

Could Weebly show tags underneath each post?

Community Grammar Auto-Correction!

Status: New Idea
by BlackForever Wednesday - last edited Wednesday

I don't know if anybody has realized it yet, but when writing posts, there is no auto-correction available, and so people can do a lot of mistakes when typing. However, it's not Weebly's fault as the system is powered by another third party which is Lithium. Hope this can be fixed. Thx.

It would be great if there would be a place inside the Products panel to add a 'New' tag so that visitors would know that this a recently added new product in my store, similar to the App Center. Thx

MEGA MENU NAVIGATION

Status: New Idea
by DanielJCartier 4 weeks ago - last edited 3 weeks ago 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

 

 

In order to monatize a blog properly, the freedom to place banner ads anywhere on a blog page is crucial.  All other web design platforms have this function.  To be limited to place adds in the blog side bar is to limiting.

 

Alot of advertisers require wider, flatter banner ads above or below a blog post.  A lot of banner sizes are also impractical for the Weebly side bar width. I do not understand why Weebly programmed the blog page in such a way that the normal elements like image, html code, title, text, etc can not be dragged above, below or to the side of blog posts?

 

One also would not want to drag these elements into  a blog post itself as bloggers want to change the banner ads and vary adds on a frequant basis and change advertisers.  Also older posts move down on the blog page with the addition of new posts.

 

To be honest of all the web platforms I have researched, Weebly is the worst in terms of making money out of advertising on their blog pages. It's a pity because Weebly is one of the easiest platforms to use.  But the point of spending all the time and effort to create free blog content is to make money out of advertising on a blog page.

 

Weebly will you please look into this?  If the drag and drop element functions are available on standard pages, I'm sure your web coders will be able to write the code to also have these drag and drop features available on a blog page.

 

Please, I think this feature will make many other bloggers on other platforms switch to Weebly.  Apart from this issue I think Weebly is awesome.

 

Thank you.

 

Regards

Peter 

It would be awesome to have an option to add a little "loading page" animation to our web-sites. I found it here: www.blastside.com Just choose any page there and you will see little circle in center while page is loading. It's so sweet, would like to add it to my web-site and modify it like size, color and fast of circle. Smiley Happy

Yep, the shipping options are severely limited...but you guys knew that already.  So many questions and suggestions regarding this important subject and 'feature'.  It seems silly that I can't offer free shipping for specific products or categories.  Please expand our shipping options, thank you.

 

Automatically Apply Free Shipping

Status: New Idea
by Olivia_J Wednesday - last edited Thursday by Employee Moderator

I have free shipping for all orders over $60. But my patrons have to select the free shipping option (among all my other costed shipping) or they may accidently pay for shipping.


It would be great if the free shipping automatically applied when the customer spends the required amount. 

Shipping Rates Per Item

Status: New Idea
by Liohila 2 weeks ago

It would be ideal to have a specific shipping rate for certain items. For example, there may be a special type of packaging if you buy a certain amount of an item.

 

Changing shipping rates by weight or cost does not help in many situations as other items can add up to the weight/cost of the item you want to have a special shipping rate for.

Changing the Filename of uploaded images (For better SEO)

Status: Hurray! We're Done!

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!

I submitted this idea on Saturday, 16/7 and it seemed to be misplaced somewhere. So I searched the site for advice and came across similar problem encountered by Sue and in that thread a suggestion was made to log out and log in and resubmit the idea. Hence this resubmission.

 

"I was writing a new blog post the other day and uploaded a file from my computer to be embeded in my story. I wasn't sure if the file was placed correctly and had no way to find out except to publish it first. So I did and found the file was corrupted. I tried to unpublish that post but there was none. I had to delete it and rewrite everything all over again. This is cumbersome. As English is not my mother tongue, editing the post right away is rather impossible. Besides I was only half way through.

It would be really helpful if we can preview our blog post to check if the file or images or other links actually work before finally make it available online."

 

Customizing Checkout Experience To Our Own Preferences!

Status: New Idea
by BlackForever on ‎05-18-2016 09:09 AM - last edited on ‎05-18-2016 10:11 AM by Employee Moderator

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

Pre-publish feature

Status: New Idea

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