Pros About Weebly
Very Quick and Easy to Learn
Weebly is probably one of the most user friendly website builders out there today. With their drag and drop builder it doesn't get much simpler.
Despite their quick to learn builder it still comes with amazing features. Features that would normally takes months if not years of coding to learn. And they still managed to keep it simple.
Hundreds of Free Images, Themes and Templates
Along with other features Weebly a special one worth looking into would be their supply of hundreds of free watermark free images to use for your website, along with free great looking themes and templates.
Recently, Weebly has improved their supply of advanced looking themes which used to be one of their biggest weaknesses. However, with new ones being submitted every now and then you can almost be sure that you will never go without a good looking theme. Maybe you even have your own header images and themes you would like to use? Then go ahead, full customization along with HTML/CSS is available!
Wide Variety Functions
What I mean by this is that Weebly offers a huge amount of varied features to help you create the type of website that you want to do, such as E-commerce, Membership, Blog features, User created App support and more.
Along with all these features you will also quickly find out that they are very well made! Weebly also allows user created apps and widgets to use on your website. Many of them are free and some of them costs.
Cons About Weebly
Blog Features Need an Upgrade
Although Weebly offers blog support, which is good, they need to give their users blogging abilities a little upgrade.
More recently, websites with blogs often would like the ability to highlight related posts, most popular posts and latest posts. This is something Weebly has to work on as they have not yet implemented these features unlike some rivals.
The basics are given to you at hand when blogging. Such as social media buttons, read more cut, blog categories, archives and even scheduling. But all considered, these are pretty basic functions all blogs should have and therefore there is not much special with Weeblys blogging features.
Slow With Adding new Features
Weebly may have a lot of features, but you would never mind something new every now and then.
Though Weeblys features are very well made and operate perfectly with the drag and drop website builder, they are quite slow with adding new features.
However, Weebly has improved significantly over the last years in this section. Not too long ago they added their ''user made apps'' feature which made you able to implement external features that other users have created and therefore get access to a more broad website customization ability. Weebly just needs to keep heading in the direction they are doing right now and this issue will be fixed.
Migrating to a new Platform can be Hard
The last major disadvantage with Weebly is that they make it hard for you to change platform.
If you would like to change platform to your Wordpress powered site for example, then this will be an annoying process with all your URL redirects and content transfering. Please do notice that Weebly do offer 301 directs in case that you would come across this scenario so that it wouldn't be impossible to migrate your website.
Does Weebly Suit you?
Weebly is super simple to use, and suits all ranges of personal websites as well as businesses and E-commerce stores
So, based on this review, Weebly is ideal for small businesses, personal websites and E-commerce stores. As well as for photographers, designers and local store owners.
There are more advanced website builders available, but Weebly is catching up and doing so fast when it comes to introducing new advanced features and fresh designs.
One of the great things about Weebly is also that even though they are adding new features and steadily increasing in advance, the user interface still remain easy to use and understand. This benefits everyone and most importantly those who do not have any technical skill.
Also if you do happen to know a bit of code, this can benefit you greatly and be a good asset. This because Weebly allows those who have a little bit of familiarity with coding access their websites HTML/CSS section, even for free users.
