Main Weebly Login Window<br />Grade Level Site<br />Teacher A Site<br />Teacher B Site<br />Teacher C Site<br />Up to 10 sites total per account!!!<br />
1<br />2<br />3<br />4<br />5<br />Top LEFT of the Weebly Editor<br />The 5 tabs each have a specific purpose… (See slides to come…)<br />Top RIGHT of the Weebly Editor<br />The Publish button will make your site LIVE – and will require that you enter/create a URL the first time.<br />The Close button will take you back to the main account window.<br />
Adding and Organizing Pages<br />The page at the top will be the HOME page – the first page people see when they visit your site – you can drag the pages to rearrange their order.<br />One page should be a BLOG page – this is where you will update class news, etc., like a digital newsletter<br />The rest of your pages should be ‘regular’ pages – and can even be grouped…<br />Your site can have as many pages and sub-pages as you want, since there are no page limits for either free or paid accounts.<br />
Settings!<br />This is where your PUBLISHED URL is changed<br />This is just the Title of your site – shows up on the top of all your pages…<br />If you choose to password protect your site – this is where it’s done <br />This is text that goes at the bottom of every page - you can change or remove it!<br />
Site Design<br />The Design of your site is the general way it looks – the colors, fonts, and layout.<br />The design can be changed at any time – and will not affect your content<br />Some themes have the page links down the left side, and some have it across the top.<br />You can change the header image in the design theme you select, so just look at layout, colors, etc.<br />Once you select your design, you can further customize your fonts and text colors<br />
In order to type on your page, you need to add items from Elements – I call these widgets.<br />Elements<br />Elements are the basic building blocks of your site. All of your site content, be it text, pictures, videos or what have you, is added via an element.<br />The most common widgets that you will add are under BASIC:<br />Paragraph, Picture, Title, etc.<br />Some more fun and interesting widgets are under Multimedia:<br />Embed document, slideshow, etc.<br />When you are on a BLOG type page – then you will also have a Blog Sidebar category <br />
Publishing your Site<br />Any time you make changes to your Weebly site you must Publish it for the world to see.<br />It will automatically ask you to enter a URL the first time you Publish, IF you have not set one under Settings.<br />Here, you will see that your website is published, and you can click the blue link to visit your site. (yoursite.weebly.com)<br />At the bottom, they are suggesting that you PURCHASE a URL for your site that does not have Weebly in it. This is unnecessary, you can ignore it. <br />
Adding an image from your computer …<br />First, drag a Picture widget down from Elements – Multimedia.<br />Second, click on the blue box that says “Click here to edit.”<br />Last, click on Choose File to get a dialog box in which you can locate and select your image.<br />
