Pros and Cons

  • Easy customization.
  • Integration with other apps and add ons.
  • Intuitive and easy to use.
  • Affordable.
  • Constantly improving and adding new features.
  • Meets standards for security and cookies.
  • Has an auto-save function so your work doesn't get lost.
  • Many template options to use as a starting point.
  • Offers a strong support community to solve problems and find ideas.
  • SEO settings are easy to implement and update.
  • Sometimes the platform can be glitchy and needs a refresh.
  • Some formatting and placement options are not customizable and this may be frustrating to some users (especially those coming over from WordPress).
  • When you are uploading photos, you have to wait for the upload to finish before working on another part of your site or your work won't save (I lack patience so this bothers me).
  • Detailed customization in the HTML is possible but may create over-confidence in users - especially those that don't have coding experience.

Pros and Cons

  • Weebly makes it incredibly easy for contributors to add content on an occasional basis without knowing the nitty-gritty details of site maintenance. Plus, their site security makes sure that a novice contributor does not accidentally trash the site.
  • Changing the site's look and feel is fairly quick and easy. Weebly walks you through the process, giving you the confidence to improve your site.
  • Adding images, video and/or sound is as easy as click-and-drag! Careful use of visuals greatly increase the relevance of our site.
  • Adding a copy of an event flyer can sometimes be frustrating, as certain formats force odd badging or fuzzy text.
  • Initial use of the product takes more time than it really should....better documentation at the start would help greatly. Reaching out to the user community does make up for some of these issues, however.
  • Upgrades and changes to the product are not readily communicated. I've always hoped that might be because I use an info@domainname address, but I have never taken the time to verify that.

Pros and Cons

  • Drag and drop interface makes it very easy to add all types of content, including images, text, video (and YouTube videos), embeddable applications and more.
  • It's very easy to set up navigation features like cascading menus and sticky navigation (where the menu stays put - may depend on the template chosen though).
  • A technical backend is fairly straight-forward for setting up a fav icon, 301 redirects, SEO, Google Analytics, etc.
  • I wouldn't recommend using Weebly for extensive e-commerce functionality. There are better tools out there.
  • If you're seriously considering creating a blog as the core of your business, WordPress does a much better job.
  • Templates and overall design of the templates are somewhat limited. If you're looking for more design-appeal, Squarespace is a better option, although you sacrifice some of the ease-of-use (not much though once you get used to it).
  • The Designer Platform for agencies haven't you in years, and there's no information from Weebly about when it will be upgraded.

  • Great visuals and tools to make your website feel alive

Pros and Cons

  • Easy to update website designs.
  • Multiple plugins and apps you can use to upgrade your site
  • It's nice to be able to have authorization to multiple sites through one login
  • Plugins leave a lot to be desired. Not a ton of custom options and many require additional subscriptions.
  • SEO options are also pretty elementary - if SEO if a focus for you, avoid Weebly
  • Overall templates are pretty boring compared to something you could create on WordPress

Pros and Cons

  • Easy for anyone, no computer expertise necessary. Even inserting code to make things specific has been really easy.
  • Immediate support. When I have added to or re-designed the site, I need frequent support and I receive it usually within 24 hours (if it is by email) or instantly if by phone.
  • Options to add an online store.
  • I do not recommend their marketing feature yet.
  • Marketing feature does not have a way to sync opt-ins to MailChimp and every email has to be put in by hand.
  • At one point my mass emails were limited to 500 people. I ended up never using this feature since I have more than this but found this limiting.

Pros and Cons

  • Weebly provides its customer best speed and security which reduces the risk of hacking.
  • If you add a subdomain within your website then Weebly is free forever.
  • You don't need to have much programming knowledge. It provides you templates you just need to drag and drop them as per your choice.
  • Every system has sort, filter, and edit features. It has a pages section that shows all the pages on its site, and it allows you to drag and drop the hierarchy and click to edit each. But it not efficient.
  • The main disadvantage of Weebly is that if you move to different platform it becomes difficult for you to migrate your content and redirecting your URLs
  • You can do HTML editing, so most marketing tools can be added to it. But since you don't have overall control to the site and server it can be difficult or impossible for you to add.

Pros and Cons

  • 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.

  • Allows for customizing
  • Pre-made template banners are hard to customize. Before the update, you could hover over a banner, obtain the pixel dimensions and recreate a customized banner on your own. Now, that feature has been taken away.
  • Greater selection of free images for educational use.

Pros and Cons

  • I like how easy it is to customize your page.
  • There is a flexibility like most other sites simply do not have.
  • I don't like that you have to buy a plan to get 'weebly' out of the web address.
  • It sort of makes it confusing for people who are looking for a specific site when you're only a student and can't afford to publish your projects on your own.

Pros and Cons

  • It allows building a site visually, without requiring deep knowledge of HTML, CSS and similar skills.
  • It has a wide range of media widgets like YouTube, maps, search boxes, social media and other tools, nicely integrated.
  • It provides the site creation and the hosting, all in one package.
  • Some parts of the layout are a bit rigid, making it difficult to design pages less structured. Despite this can be seen as kind of protection against visual inconsistency, some users could find it a bit constrained.
  • Weebly has a collection of photos (free and paid) that can be inserted in the site, but they must be found through keyword search. Other ways of searching (collections, tags, suggestions, etc.) would improve this function.
  • The user must be aware that the site created in Weebly must stay in Weebly's servers to keep its editing functionalities. It is possible to get the files (code, images and so on) and move them to a new host provider, but they would not work without some fixing made by a web designer.

Pros and Cons

  • Weebly is easy-to-use. Really the definition of intuitive.
  • Weebly doesn't restrict you to their ecosystem. Many drag n drop builders make their real money off strong arming you into using the rest of their tools by actively restricting the implementation of third party solutions (think scheduling tools, chat, etc). Weebly doesn't do this.
  • The responsiveness is really good for a drag n drop builder.
  • Reasonably priced. Weebly is affordable for anyone.
  • At times, you can't quite do what you envision. While it's drag n drop, there is a grid system that must be maintained. Every once in awhile you'll get a bit irritated and revert to plan B. Being able to freestyle just a bit more would be nice.
  • You're very limited in what types of rotating content pieces (like quote sliders) you can create without a third party plug in. Slideshow images are solid, but image + text or text only, not so much.
  • I think the blogging capabilities are a little weak. I wish there was a better way to create different templates for the blog. It feels a little restricting and I find it harder to use than the rest of the product.
