We decided to create a website for our youth programs that was separate from our main website, Weebly fit what we needed exactly! We are able to have multiple users with different levels of web design knowledge access and update the site from anywhere. We can even restrict which pages each editor can access.
  • Extremely large selection of well-designed templates make getting started creating a website easy.
  • Allowing multiple editors with different permissions to access from anywhere.
  • Allowing customization of templates i.e.: adding company colors and rearranging headers by page.
  • I would like to be able to preview changes on the web and mobile before publishing them. The widget in the editor is nice, but not always as realistic as I would like. I like to view it in different browsers before publishing.
  • I would like to see better information for novices on SEO.
  • When embedding a document I find Scribd to take away from the design of the page and users have difficulty navigating and downloading. I usually also end up placing the file in a downloadable format above the embedded file from Scribd.
Weebly is easy to navigate and create for even a first-time web designer! They provide all the options in a drag and drop format to easily create an an amazing array of themes that will fit anyone's needs! The analytics provided with a pro subscription are very helpful in seeing where the traffic on the site came from, what pages they viewed and search terms used. Weebly makes consistent updates adding and/or tweaking features that make creating a site easy and giving you the tools you need to make your site unique.

  • As a non-profit, Weebly had options to make having a secondary site financially feasible.
We looked at a variety of other site builders that were available at the time we decided to create our secondary site and Weebly had more options that suited our needs at the time and the ease of use was far above the other options. Over the years we have been utilizing Weebly, they have proven themselves over and over again by providing updates that are timely and relevant.

Our Weebly users include Administrative Assistants, Educators, and teen lay-leaders. We use our site to communicate to the teens within our programs and their parents. We include information for prospective members about our programs, calendars & registration forms for current participants. We have found our site built on Weebly has more visits than our main site using another program.

Weebly is so easy to use, even a novice can take to it quickly. We need very little in-house support. Most of the in-house support is setting up a new user with access and deciding which pages they need access too as well as a quick overview on how to use it.
  • Communicate information about the programs we offer
  • Communicate the schedule of our programs
  • Registration for our programs
  • Communicate information about programs offered by other groups that are related to our offerings
  • Add live stream of programs while they are happening
  • Slideshow of art projects
  • interactive blog
  • Teacher to student interaction
  • posting of homework
Weebly is consistently adding features that line up with our needs. The ease of use makes it the perfect program for us since we have users of multiple age brackets and knowledge of web design. We love that we can give users access to only the pages they are affiliated with.

The product needed to be easy to use for all levels of website building expertise as well as fit into our non-profit budget.
We would have created a few simple test sites and let both back-end and front-end users evaluate the features & ease of use.

I used Weebly for my artist portfolio page. To make a long story short, I ended up in switching to Squarespace after reaching the limitation of what Weebly could not do. For an artist's showcase site, appearance is everything, Weebly didn't stick around in terms of the appearance. It wasn't terrible but it wasn't good either. Also, some bit of coding skill was required to alter simple matters, and I totally dreaded having to do it myself. I liked that customer service was available, and they were nice, but what I wanted required so much coding which they are not equipped to support. I did not want to pay extra $1000 or so just to make the website the way I wanted. If appearance is not important at all, then Weebly can make a website very quickly. But it does not become very pretty, like other platforms do.
  • When you don't like Weebly, they refund the money with no questions asked, as long as you cancel the paid account within the specified time range.
  • Figuring out how to build a website may be faster with Weebly than other platforms.
  • Customer service was prompt and very available.
  • Templates are not up to date to today's website trend. Not great looking.
  • It requires so much coding skills just to alter background colors and such.
  • There was something very wrong with footer layout. Footer area gets hidden no matter how the site is made. Footer should be visible at all times especially when there is not too much content on the page. It requires scrolling down just to see the footer. I find it very strange.
  • Templates needed so many things being fixed and it required me to go into the files and do the coding... I really hated it. Templates should be ready to use as is.
If someone needs a website as soon as possible, Weebly is good. Also, if the site is text based in content, not like artist or apparel or something that requires visual appeal, then you can make a site very quickly and have a decent look. For example, if it is a professional service, such as an accounting service, attorneys, and such, which content consists of texts, and visual is only supplemental to the content itself, then Weebly is okay. Weebly is not suited if the site needs to look really cool.
