How does Weebly work?
When you first decide to build a website the first thing you'll be looking to do is choose a website platform or content management system to build the site in. Weebly is a content management system that uses a drag and drop website editor, making it perfect for putting together a site without needing any coding skills.
To get started with Weebly you'll first need to either sign up directly with Weebly.com or contact a Weebly designer such as 543 Themes. Whichever way you go, it's a really simple process to get started. If you are looking at making your own site with Weebly, you are able to create an account and start building your first website free of charge.
Choose your theme:
Once you have an account setup with Weebly, the next step in the process is choosing a theme to start building your website with. Weebly has a range of pre-designed themes and templates you can use to get underway. Just scroll through the various categories and pick a theme that suits both your industry and the design style you are looking to hit.
Alternatively, check out 543 Theme's range of custom themes that you can install into your site for a more unique look.
Build your site:
Once you've chosen your theme the next step in creating your site is building it. This is where you really gain an understanding of how Weebly works. As mentioned earlier, the website content management system is a drag and drop website editor that makes it incredibly easy to build and edit your site. Simply click on an element in the menu bar, drag it onto the page and drop it where you'd like it to be positioned.
Publish your site:
When it comes time to put your Weebly website live, you can either publish onto a weebly.com domain, or onto a domain you have purchased yourself. Publishing onto your own domain will involve a fee, but it is a very straight forward process.
