I made my website perfectly fine then this happens

So my grade created an organization and wanted me to create a website I said sure and so I found Weebly and downloaded it. Everything was fine and then they wanted me to present it to everyone in the entire grade. I said OK, but then I needed to add a very important part. So I put it in tand then it was loading. I waited for 20 minutes and nothing happened. I decided to turn my power off for 2 minutes and then turn it back on. Nothing happened. I was getting pretty nervous and needed to present it in a couple of minutes. I decided to double tap my home button and close all my applications. Still, nothing happened. I couldn't add the thing that I needed to add so I just didn't know what to do. I went on safari to see my website and it said "not found". I got so frustrated because I was going to present in 20 seconds. They canceled the presentation and we had to get rid of the entire organization. THESE PEOPLE ARE SO ANNOYING! THEY ARE PROBABLY NOT EVEN GOING TO REPLY TO ME BECAUSE THEY ONLY REPLY TO PEOPLE THAT SAY Weebly WAS GREAT. EVEN IF THEY DO THEIR GONNA SAY "OH WE WILL FIX IT" BUT NOT EVEN DO ANYTHING! IF YOU WERE THINKING ON GETTING THIS, DON'T. IT'S GOING TO WORK EXTREMELY WELL ONCE YOU GET IT AND YOU MOST LIKELY END UP BUYING STUFF IN Weebly , THEN THEY WILL LET IT NOT LOAD AND SCAM YOU!


Worst Experience Ever

For the last 3 hours customers have been unable to purchase from my website, on a day where I make my most sales! I called customer service for assistance and all they offered was a 10% coupon and advised that they are working on fixing the problem. No one could tell me what the problem was. I spoke to a rep by the name of “Xiomara” ref:_00DE0Y7ru._5004W1e2Uim:ref, who did nothing to help. She didn’t care that because of this company, I would be losing out on money when I trusted them to house my website. Worst idea ever! I asked for the address to corporate and was hung up on. Prior to that the rep told me to wait for a email, which would let me know what’s going, but I never even received a email letting me know the site was going through technical problems in the first place! I still haven’t received any communication about any type of outage at all! I had to find out my site was down when a customer contacted me saying nothing is available on my website, even though everything is fully stocked online. This will be my last few days with this app, they’ve been nothing but difficult to work with! No one ever knows anything that’s going on and can ever fix a problem. I’m done!


Best Small Business Website Building App!

I have been using this app for a few years now for my home improvement business, and I absolutely love it! Very simple to use, and offers all the features needed to create a very professional looking website.

I almost made the mistake of paying a company to build a website for my company, and it would have cost me thousands of dollars to do everything I wanted. I am so glad I didn’t pay them because I appreciate having full control of my content, and being able to make changes whenever I want or need to, and that company wanted control of all my content, and all changes would have to be made through them.

If you are undecided about whether to build your own site or not, you should really consider building your own site with this app. You will not regret it! I don’t even truly know what I’m doing, but I am getting tons of customers for my business, so I know it works for me, and I guarantee it work for you too if you decide to build your own site.

this app also offers plenty of helpful information on building an effective website, which has helped me along the way with attracting the customers I need to survive in the home improvement industry. Whether you own your own business, or enjoy blogging, you can’t go wrong building your site with this app! I say “do it”!


Very user UNfriendly

I have tried many times to edit my site with Weebly on my iPad. I’ve been able to only update an image here and there. But try to write a blog post? Don’t even bother. I’ll get two sentences in and then it tries to auto-save and gets stuck on loading. If I get out of it, I lose what I’ve written. If by some miracle I can get a full paragraph done, the onscreen keyboard hides the bottom half of the edit screen so now I can’t see what I’m typing! It won’t scroll up and I have to constantly put the keyboard off screen to see if it is correct. So inevitably I give up and take out the laptop. (The site has been slow there as well btw). Mine is a new site and I’m still working on it as well as trying to get followers and it’s kind of an impossible task if I can’t add to it! I chose this app because it let me layout the site exactly as I had imagined it and it has some great features. But if I can’t update it and keep up with it, it is of no use to me. I have already put an enormous amount of time into creating the site and I don’t want to move it to another company, so please, give up useability both on Weebly and the site itself.



I have been wanting to make a website for a charity group of mine for a long time. I have never been able to all websites and apps have failed me. I saw one of my teachers using Weebly to power a school website. I decided That the website seems stable. I gave it a go and I finally created my own website. The only reason I read this for star is is I had a spelling error, when I typed out the web Address. It seemed very dirty. I still do not know if there is a way to change. I am currently working on it but until then it is not and I have had visitors on my website which worries me. Hopefully they do not think bad about me since this is supposed to be a good kind a cherry pi Address. It seemed very dirty. I still do not know if there is a way to change.

One thing ruined it all

At first I thought Weebly was great. You had the choice of a free option, and it was easy to use. But then, I chose a template for an event and I was very annoyed. It was the last one, and I went to the details section. There was a photo that was already there, of a woman and a man. In the home section, I could easily replace it and put a slide show on top. Great. But in the details section when I tried to put a gallery over the picture, and simply change it to a background photo that I wanted, it didn’t work. I kept trying to press edit but nothing came up. Now it looks stupid and my website is ruined. It was the only template that really worked. Such a shame for an app that was so good.

I hate Weebly! All my hard work is now gone! I was so proud of myself and I was almost finished but of course Weebly had to shut down! I should have listened to the reviews! The whole app is just a glitch! They keep saying they’re sorry but never actually do anything! I was so happy when I found an website builder that was free but I knew it was too good to be true. Nobody download this good for nothing garbage!


Doesn’t Work

When I had to make a website for my language arts class it worked really well, and I was very happy with how mine turned out. But then, we had to make a website for my science class as well. It gave me some troubles, but I managed to be able to edit along with my peers to perfect our website. Now that my science class is over, I have to get back into my language arts website. However, when I try to get into the website section for my profile, it just shows a blank page. I assumed it was just my chromebook, but it turns out that it was the same result on my phone. Very disappointed that I might get a bad grade in my language arts class because this app won’t work.


Great potential, but major bugs

8/3/18 UPDATE
The developer contacted me and we went back and forth several times about the bugs in the site. Unfortunately, they have yet to be resolved, and in fact I discovered a new bug that freezes Weebly when posting a blog. As such, I am reducing my rating one star.

I really want Weebly to work. I hope they fix it.

This is one application I really wish worked better and then it does. The drag-and-drop editing process or the iPad app is far superior to any desktop interface for web design. If it worked well it would be the most futuristic website design tool around.

That being said, there are major bugs in this application. The biggest of these bags is that it randomly will re-order page content willy-nilly without any rhyme or reason. This is extraordinarily frustrating and usually requires a trip to a desktop browser in order to correct the problem.

The other issue seems to be with the blog which frequently tells me that there is a page mismatch that requires a trip to a desktop browser to correct, which results in a loss of all content on the iPad.

Between these two issues, it is difficult to trust this application to do what I need to do. Furthermore, since the major bugs *always* require a trip to the desktop browser, it really means that there’s no point to this application since sooner or later (usually sooner) you’re going to have to use your desktop computer anyway.


Very Nice App But I Have A Frustrating Problem...

this app is the best website-making app/website I have ever used! WordPress and Blogger were tough to figure out, so I switched to this, and so far it’s been great! I think there are reasonable prices.
I created a website but it hasn’t been published yet. Sometimes, I edit it on my computer and sometimes on my iPad. this app has lots of helpful tools and everything you’d need for a first (but not perfect, of course) website!
However, ever since I edited my website on my computer one time, whenever I try to edit my website and I click Edit Website on my iPad it just says, “Saving 2 changes,” and the little circle thing (I forgot what to call it) just rolls round and round and my website NEVER loads! This has never happened before! What is WRONG? Now I can’t even edit my website! Frustrating!


I used to enjoy Weebly..

When I started my first business I used a computer and never had ay issues, now my business is mobile and I often only have my iPhone. I cannot count the number of times I have installed and reinstalled Weebly on my phone. It only loads 1 out of ever 100 times I try to open Weebly . Doesn’t matter if I am on WiFi, or using my data. And the website is not mobile friendly so I cannot use the website on my phone. It only allows me is we part o a page I can’t zoom in or out or scroll. I get notifications but cannot open Weebly to see what it is. I can only see my orders when through my copy of the emails that are sent. Which means I also cannot print the invoices and stick them in the packages through my airdrop printer unless I print my copy of the email. If I didn’t have so much invested I would find someplace else that is more mobile friendly. I probably still will, but I need to have the time to make the transition.


Great app for quick site editing!

Over two years ago, I volunteered to create and maintain a site for a small nonprofit carving club. I studied other online website editors and felt this app would be the best for the club’s needs. I very much appreciate this app offering a free site for such organizations. If this app didn’t provide free sites, this club would not have a website. It was easy to quickly create the site, and now maintaining it takes very little time. Weebly makes it easy to make updates at a moment’s notice. When I had a problem with editing the site, this app Help responded quickly with an answer. This impressed me, and I feel this app cares about both paying site webmasters and those who create free sites. Thank you so much this app!


Great! But would love some more fearures

Weebly is pretty great! Easy to edit your site and do most stuff you can do from a computer; however, there are some things that you cant do on Weebly that you can do on the computer.

I have to rely on Weebly for my site. I am hiking the Pacific Crest Trail and will be updating my blog every time i get service. So, I will only be using Weebly for editing as i wont have access to a computer. So far i’ve noticed you can’t connect a hyperlink to the same places that you can via a computer which is kind of frustrating. Also, i’ve noticed a few bugs where i will add or edit something via Weebly , but it will look different when i log on with a computer.

Great app, needs to be fully functional like the computer counter-part though.


Good Service for Website, everything else…not so much

What Weebly does is wonderful. I am very happy with the site and how it looks, buuuuuuuuut
Using the site, connecting it to Square, completing the bare minimum set up for account AND site was miserable and difficult. I was not able to access any of the information I needed to do tasks, and customer service information was hard to find, except for a phone number, and who has time for phone customer service?

Once you figure It out… its ok, but most of what I needed required me to go back and forth between the this app app, Square App and then when the apps didn’t give me access to settings and account information, I would have to use Safari browser for some functions and Chrome for others.
They advertise as basic, straight forward and approachable, but only if you pay their “experts”


Enjoying app but wish you could edit colored square text

Seems once you get used to Weebly you can move fairly unhindered to do whatever work you need to do. They should ask dumb guys like me how to set it up and a kindergartner could do
It. Lol. The only thing right now that I’m not happy about is not being able to edit when you are working with a colored field. It’s a great feature to help break up text fields so theirs some depth to the page but you can’t change the text in there on the phone app. Otherwise I’ve been with the company since around 2008? So I’m enjoying the continuous updates and upgrades that keep it current and mod.


Good, but a bit clunky.

When I first made my site, Weebly worked beautifully. There were moments that I got a bit frustrated, but they were so few. Since recent updates, Weebly won’t load on my ipad, so I’ve been using my phone. Some parts of the phone app work, but it looks like other areas are continuously loading. I went to edits my site and it simply says 7 changes saved at the top. There’s a blank screen and then the bottom says done. I wait and it never loads, so I click done and it just takes me back to Weebly ’s main screen.

I know Weebly can be very helpful and I’ve enjoyed using it. I’m hoping that bugs like this can be worked out in the next few updates. For now I’ve deleted Weebly and redownloaded it to see if that improves the situation.

Thank you!


It has potential…

Weebly has the potential to make my life so much easier. But alas, it falls short. The number of times I’ve edited items from Weebly , and they not save, is ridiculous. I’ll get a notification that says updates were unsuccessful (or something to that nature). I keep trying to push them through, but they never work once I get that notification. I make sure my app is updated. I log out, log back in. Shut my phone off. Nothing seems to make Weebly happy for me. I can usually edit one item before I get the notification. Then need to restart. But when I usually have several to do, it’s very inconvenient. And most times I give up.

I also wish there was a way to batch edit some things- like item weight for all variants, etc. - like you can on the website.

Also, this app- online retail is huge, please make your websites be able to have lots of photos without making the website super slow. I have lost sales from people saying that my website loads slowly. The only thing I’ve ever heard from a CS representative is that I have a lot of photos. I sell clothing- of course I have lots of photos!

Like I said, this could be great. If they would fix those couple problems.


Love the browser version, but this app is useless

Even when Weebly "worked" for me, it had a very poor interface. It would often be difficult to target what I was trying to edit and it would untarget items even midway through typing so i would have to stop to readjust everything again. Loading things in took AGES, and it was often that things editted on here would become very wonky when looking at the actual site both on mobile and on the desktop!

Now I can't even use Weebly at all as my devices are older and it no longer supports any features or functions without an update that I can't get!

Very frustrating- if you want to provide mobile editting then at least TRY to change the function some so that its compatible with mobile and not just a wonky, resized version of the same way desktop version works. It doesn't convert so easily, and a site maker should KNOW that since its their job to.


I used to love this app but....

I’m a middle schooler and I used this app to make a website for my girls robotics team project. Weebly was MUCH easier to navigate than the website which was amazing and helpful. Unfortunately, the main reason I am writing this review is that recently (perhaps in early February) this app released an update that remade the general view of Weebly . It caused Weebly to be exceedingly difficult to navigate in my opinion and honestly I was very confused when I first opened Weebly after the update. It appears less professional and it is hard to access stats. The home screen used to have the stats easily listed as well as easy access to edit the website. I would really like if this app went back to the old format which was also simply more elegant and pretty.


App is slow and crashes constantly

While having a mobile this app app is very convenient, trying to get Weebly to do ANYTHING is like pulling teeth. Click a button.... wait 15 seconds for it to load, realize Weebly didn’t register that you pressed the button, press again.... wait another 15 seconds. Finally the button is pressed, but now you must wait ANOTHER 15 seconds for the actual function to load.... and half the time Weebly crashes before you can even complete the task.

Weebly routinely crashes every 5 minutes or so. But if you stump it with something too difficult, like clicking something without waiting 10 seconds in between functions, Weebly may crash just to spite you.

I honestly expected more from a company like Square with so many resources at their disposal but Weebly is incredibly frustrating.



this app, sometimes there’s things you don’t have to change. For instance, I don’t give two 💩’s about the privacy notice EVERY time i open Weebly . I choose to close it once stop making it pop up, I’ve already read it, it makes Weebly look sloppy. Secondly, why are you changing the algorithm making my website have 0 views when it literally just had 500+ 3 mins ago, it’s stuck on 0 views and who knows if I’m even getting orders because the algorithm y’all added TODAY is broken! Third, there’s an old saying “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”. This is where companies go wrong, stop trying to fix things that aren’t needed to be fixed and fix the other issues that need attention. Until then, you’re getting 3 stars only, i was debating on making it 2 but there isn’t a half star option for me to be lenient.



ON SHOPIFY APP you can edit your site right on Weebly . I quit Shopify to add try this app. One of the main features I was looking for was a mobile app where I can do everything on my phone since I barely have time to do everything on my slow laptop and I’m out and about most of the day. Was in the middle of editing my site, had to leave. Was so eager to continue editing my site on my phone and boom “Editing is not supported” message as soon as I tried. this app IS THE WORST. Going to wait to see if this changes in the next update. For now I already quit and went back to Shopify. So close, this app. You almost gained back one, but you missed the catch.


Blog editing and update problem

Hello this app,
My hour of work editing my blog post went down the drain just now. When I finished editing the blog (text element), and clicked "update post," an error message came up saying that something was out of sync with your server and asked me to edit again. When I returned to the blog editor, the changes I made were all gone, and the content of the text element reverted back to where it was an hour ago. This kind of problem (where the blog content on the server is not updated as it is on the editor causing problems) has been occurring ever since I began using your service (both on iPad and PC) almost three years ago in 2015. This issue is confined in the blog editor only. The rest of function is working properly, I believe.


One satisfied business owner

As someone with a site that is constantly being updated and improved, I don’t always have a computer handy...but I usually have my iPad with me 24/7. Since learning to update and publish my site from the iPad, I have become so much more efficient with making sure things are updated in real time (or at least a heck of a lot quicker than “I’ll do it when I get to my computer.” It’s 2019, if you’re going to have a site, have the common sense to use Weebly to manage and maintain your site to provide your customers a great experience
