    • Weebly Adding Pages to Your Site 9/30/2013 Tall Header: This layout is the default for each new page. It includes a section at the top of the page where a large header image can be uploaded. Short Header: This layout includes a header area at the top of the page as well. But as implied by the name, this header is smaller than the default "Large Header" layout. No Header: You can probably see where this is going now. Where the Large and Small Header layouts each have an area to upload a header image, this layout does not include any such area. Landing Page: The Landing Page layout includes space for a header image, a title, a subtitle message and an action button that can be linked to any other page of your site. The Landing Page is a good choice for a home page layout. Copy Page allows you to create multiple pages with the same elements.
    • Weebly Adding Elements to Your Site The beauty of Weebly comes in the “Drag & Drop” method of adding content. Content is broken into several categories: • Basic – elements that let you add content to your site like text, images, titles • Structure – elements that dictate how your site will look like columns and divider lines • Media – adding enhancements like sound, video and embedded files. 9/30/2013 Note: If you see an element with a star in the upper left corner, this means this element is only available in the Pro version of Weebly Simply drag the desired element to a blank location in your page. When you let go the element will stay, and will be ready for you to add information.
