Have you ever wondered if you're looking at a Weebly website or not.
If you've been around long enough, by now you probably know what the average free Weebly theme looks like, there are roughly 100 free Weebly themes but most people gravitate towards a select few. Then you find sites like mine, that without saying so, you may never know this was built on Weebly.
How can we tell?
It has been suggested, to create a community for Weebly users, a forum of sorts for that Weebly users only would be able to access. I should note, Weebly does have featured sites from time to time, but these are only a select few, and do not give you the variety you need.
Right now, besides Facebook and a few other places there's no real way to find a Weebly site, unless you have been around Weebly long enough and have familiarized yourself with some of their free themes. If you do know what to look for, when you do happen across a Weebly site you know right away.
What do you look for?
Without the Weebly footer, or the use of a free Weebly theme, or even some mention of it on the website... how would you really know if you are looking at a Weebly website or not? How could you tell what the possibilities are if you don't even know you're looking at a Weebly website?
For someone who is familiar with HTML code you can look at the source of a page to see if it was built on Weebly, although, this method in itself is inconvenient.
What can you do?
Weebly has a solution to help you identify a Weebly built website.
I'm only aware of this extension for Google Chrome. As a matter of fact, I searched for a Firefox version and could not find one.
Here's how it works, simply load the 'extension' by clicking the 'Add to Chrome' button, and when you are on a Weebly built website, the Weebly 'W' icon will appear in the toolbar.
You can find the extension here:
If you do not have Google Chrome, I encourage you to try it., it works well and does not have some of the problems other browsers do. It does not freeze up or crash, is flexible and very user-friendly. Not to mention it works well with Weebly!
