To put it simply, Weebly is a website for building websites. The online platform strips away the need for manual coding and replaces the process with an intuitive drag-and-drop interface. The portal is known as a WYSIWYG editor, for “what you see is what you get”.
In fact, Weebly is the first WYSIWYG site builder — the three founders beat overseas competitor Wix to market by roughly six months. Weebly’s system lets users add, edit, and arrange content, such as text, photos, maps, and videos, on a website with just a few clicks of the mouse.
We’re intimately familiar with site builders, having evaluated them on criteria such as ease of use, features, and price — as well as reviewing the best platforms for online store building. As expected, the mainstay website builder continues to impress. The simplicity and intuitiveness of the user interface just can’t be beaten, and Weebly includes responsiveness with all of the program’s themes.
Some detractors dislike the structured design limitations Weebly imposes to pull off mobile-friendly designs, but we actually appreciate that Weebly doesn’t give web design rookies enough rope with which to hang themselves. We give Weebly the highest marks for a system that enables creativity and functionality.
