Building Websites with Weebly

Building websites with weebly is easy and fun with its completely customizable platform and user-friendly interface. The service is free to sign up and offers many great features like blogging, search engine tagging, and CSS editing. What makes weebly so special is its ability to edit HTML in addition to the CSS stylesheet as well as its amazing interface… not only for the end-user in managing website content but also the “dreamweaver-like” interface for designing skins.

The content manager is based on a simple “drag and drop” functionality. The top toolbar consists of different elements that can be dropped into content pages as needed. Elements include paragraphs, titles, and images as well as multimedia assets like video, slideshows, and embedded documents. There are also forms included in the elements sections for contact information or surveys as well as games. For the advanced content manager, there is an HTML element for coding directly into the page.

In my experience with the application thus far, I have personalized a weebly theme to show my website design  for client, Clarity Medical Consulting. The site will go live mid-August.

If you choose to build your website with weebly, share your experiences with me in the comments section below. I’m also very interested in using wordpress for site development and would love to hear stories on that experience as well.
