Steps to creating a weebly website
Steps to creating a Weebly website

  • Go to the Weebly support center to find step-by-step directions

  • Determine the purpose of your site – personal, professional, course-based, marketing, etc.

  • Choose a theme – consider the look you want, horizontal vs. vertical menus.

  • Plan your site and name your pages.

  • Indent pages to create subpages.

  • Use the drag and drop editor to fill your pages with content

  • Link information on your pages to other online sites, to documents in your site, or to other pages on your site.

  • Create a site map

  • Consider “hiding” some pages from your menu and linking to them in other ways to declutter the appearance.


Some tips
Some tips

  • Don’t get your domain name through Weebly – too expensive; GoDaddy is much better (a Weebly domain is free).

  • Websites created through Weebly cannot be moved to another host. If you move hosts, you have to start all over.

  • Educational website is best for K-12 educators, with protected student sites, etc. However, the features on these sites are beneficial because you do not have to pay for Pro service to get them (e.g. uploading files).

  • Plan your site (pages, subpages) in advance.

  • When linking to other online sites, choose “open a new window” to prevent your reader from navigating away from your site.

  • It’s great to hear about tools and resources, but in order to really learn something we need practice.
