Last week we looked at the popular Wix website building platform that allows you to create a site with drag and drop features. Well, it’s certainly not the only one out there as other companies have the same idea and have improved on what Wix has to offer.
Even more significant than Wix is the Weebly platform that offers a similar variety of benefits while also including the simple drag and drop feature to provide access to all the tools you need.
Both of these website creators are excellent for all levels of design as you get to use the simple feature and create the most advanced modern websites that impress visitors as they scroll through and discover the products and services you provide.
Below, we take a closer look at the Weebly website builder and see how it works. There are a few things to take into consideration, but at the end of the day, it is straightforward to use, thanks to a direct and simplistic interface that allows you to change anything within just a few drags and options.
The Website Editor
If there is one thing about Weebly that’s become a huge advantage, it has to be how easy it is to add anything to your website. Selecting the build tab at the top provides a view of your web sites along with a massive menu on the side that includes all the options you need. The best part of it all, each option requires a simple drag and drop to add to the website page.
You can scroll through all the options, and you are sure to find the features you need. Not only can you drag and drop, but there are also HTML5 code options that make it easy to add advanced features such as games, 3D tools and much more.
Once you have added a feature to the website, it is entirely customizable, not only with the location but the colour and what it says as well. Let’s assume you want to add a button to the top of the page. You can drag and drop where you want it to go, select it and gain access to the editing features for text, colour, frames and much more, allowing you to make each option yours entirely!
No, we don’t mean you can create an app with Weebly, although they do offer a brilliant mobile feature as well. However, when we say apps, we expect the additional features you can add to your website.
Whether you want to add a Facebook Like indicator, make sharing possible, add advanced slideshows or even add a popup notification for your visitors, the best place to go would be to the app store in Weebly where thousands of third-party apps are available.
Some of these come with a low monthly fee, while others are 100% free. You can only check the prices and even alter the apps to suit your needs.
