Five important differences to understand before choosing between Wix and Weebly.

Both Weebly and Wix offer app stores that let you install apps to extend the core website builder. This is really great— and Wix and Weebly are the only general-purpose website builders to offer an app store. Both app stores include a variety of free and paid apps: live chat software, marketing tools, pricing table creators and much mroe. Welcome to iPhone Basics 101! This course is designed for both first-time and veteran iPhone users. The goal of this course is to maximize your efficiency with iPhone, along with the opportunity to learn more about what the iPhone can do for you.

Shifted focus towards consumer electronics after the introduction of the iPhone Apple is the world's second-largest information technology company by revenue after Samsung Electronics, and the world's third-largest mobile phone makes after Samsung and Nokia. Fortune magazine named Apple the most admired.

Both Wix and Weebly are website builders— but they have important differences. Weebly is extremely easy to use but lacks theme customization. Wix, on the other hand, gives you plenty of freedom but can occasionally get chaotic.

Overall, you won’t be disappointed with either one— I recommend both. What matters is understanding the differences so that you can choose the one that suits your needs.

The Editor

This is the most obvious difference between Wix and Weebly.

Wix’s editor is unstructured and gives you the freedom to drag and drop elements anywhere on a page. There’s no rigid, predetermined structure to limit you. It’s even possible to move a piece of content by a single pixel at a time.

It’s possible to place elements wherever you like with Wix.

In contrast, Weebly is a structured editor— elements can be dragged and dropped, but only within a pre-designed grid.

Weebly is a structured editor.

The upside is clear for Wix’s unstructured editor: it gives you freedom. Unfortunately the lack of structure can also be frustrating.

For example: if I move this image (below) to the top of the page, the change is not reflected in the mobile version of the website— I need to go to the mobile version and adjust it there too. This is not ideal. Having to make the same edit twice is tedious— and worst, it leads to inconsistencies from human error (ie: forgetting you have to edit twice).

If you move an image on your Wix desktop website, you'll need to make the same adjustment on the mobile website— it doesn't just happen automatically.

Weebly’s structured editor on the hand is extremely easier to use— in fact, it’s the easiest to use among all website builders.

Weebly is easy to use because the team carefully designs the details of the editor. For example, watch what happens when you edit a background image (below). Notice how the drawer slides out and the background editor slides in from the bottom. This does two things: (1) opens the editor up so that the background image is unobstructed and (2) keeps the interface from getting too cluttered. It’s really smart.

Notice how parts of the interface slide in and out.

Honestly this is the type of thing you might not have notice when using Weebly— but it’s these details that make Weebly so easy to use. By contrast, Wix just stacks additional interfaces on top of your website when editing a background:

With Wix, the interface obstructs the very thing you are editing — the background!

To conclude, while the freedom of the Wix editor will be a draw for many, it comes with less of an editing safety net. Weebly on the other hand places a firm emphasis on user friendliness, meaning it’s the obvious choice for anyone who isn’t tech savvy.

Weebly is an excellent, easy to use website builder that is also going through a transition.

Any review of Weebly in 2020 should begin with this fact: Weebly is currently maintaining two different editors for creating websites: the Weebly editor and the Square editor.

Existing users will be familiar with the Weebly editor. It’s an excellent, easy to use editor that Weebly suggests is best for customized, non-ecommerce websites:

But then there is the new Square editor. It’s significantly less flexible but a bit easier to use. It’s meant for ecommerce websites.

The Weebly editor is still an excellent, easy to use editor. In the past I’ve given it a perfect 5 stars.

The Square editor is limited. It has more in common with GoDaddy than it does Squarespace or Wix. Despite it’s limitations, Weebly has told me they “prefer to shift traffic to [the Square editor].” And while the Square editor may one day be great, it’s not there yet.

Note: Square is not Squarespace. Squarespace is a seperate company. This can get confusing.

The Weebly Editor

Pages in the Weebly editor are built by dragging elements or sections from the side drawer into your page. Elements and sections are then edited within the page:

Pretty simple, right?

Now let’s trying something a bit more complicated: watch below as I edit a background image. Notice how parts of the interface slide out and the background image editor slides? Weebly’s interface is modular— it moves in and out depending on the task. This keeps the interface from becoming unnecessarily cluttered and overwhelming. It’s a trick you’ll find often in the Weebly editor.

Notice how parts of the interface slide in and out.

You might not notice Weebly’s modular interface when you’re using it— it’s pretty subtle. But it’s these details that make Weebly so easy to use. By comparison watch how overwhelming Wix’s interface becomes when editing a background:

Wix stacks up the interfaces— which obstructs the background image you are editing!

Weebly offers around 70 themes— which is less than Wix and about the same as Squarespace.

In terms of quality, Weebly’s themes are better than Wix but not quite as good as Squarespace (Squarespace has the best themes of any website builder).

Here are a few example Weebly themes:

You can get access to more themes by using Weebly’s old themes but don’t bother using them— they’re not responsive. If you are desperate for a wider theme selection you could always try a 3rd party theme provider like Mojo Marketplace— Weebly themes cost around $49 there.

Theme customization in Weebly has always been limited.

It’s easy enough to customize fonts…

You can customize these fonts.

…But there are few choices for customizing the colors of your website. You choose one color that gets applied in several different places— for example, it’s applied to the color of buttons and the active navigation. You can’t customize where or how it is applied.

Notice how the color is applied to both the navigation and the button? You can't adjust these colors individually.

I also wasn’t able to change the color of my footer without editing code— which feels like an unnecessary limitation.

You can't choose a custom background color for the footer.

One interesting part of the Weebly editor is the App Center. The App Center lets you install apps that add new elements and features to your Weebly website.

Weebly's App Center.

Some apps are free and some are paid:

APPPRICEWHAT IT DOES
Multilanguage$3 / monthAdd pages in multiple languages that visitors can swap between.
Paid Members$10 - $30 / monthCreate a paid subscription, membership site (for example: selling an online course)
Simple TableFreeAdds a table element for building tables.


Theoretically the App Center is an ecosystem for 3rd party developers. But in practice it’s mostly just apps created by Weebly. For example, there isn’t even an email subscription box from Mailchimp or Constant Contact— the most popular email newsletter providers. In this way the App Center isn’t comparable to Wordpress Plugins or Shopify’s App Store.
