Review of WordPress. The Heartache and Triumphant Moments.

2019-04-03

Wordpress has its ups and downs but Weebly is definitely better.

Pros

Wordpress has great prices. And there was a boom in interest in regards to Wordpress and SquareSpace. Wordpress also has a great timeline feature like Facebook has. That's an awesome add on. Some people can like your blog posts via the Wordpress Homepage.

Cons

Some tools are difficult to use on the site such as changing 'featured images' and more. There seems to be too many glitches. It's hard to increase font size too. And adding blocks can be difficult if you'd like to add them in specific areas.

Better out the box alternatives

2018-09-08

Used it on a few business sites but have dumped it. Too much work to maintain.

Pros

Fairly customisable but this comes at a cost (see below)

Cons

Too complicated - Weebly and Squarespace are better for the average person.

Very customizable

2018-10-22

Wordpress sometimes seems geared more toward bloggers with a single page website.

Pros

I like how you can start from scratch with Wordpress. I also like being able to switch between the HTML and preview modes to see exactly what HTML changes look like.

Cons

I wish I could import all of my web data from a Weebly site into Wordpress.

Love this! It's way more sleek than Blogger, which I love!

2018-05-07

Pros

I've used Weebly and Blogger, and Wordpress blows them out of the water.

Cons

Nothing at all -- I love the ability to write HTML, which is in addition to the plethora of options we get for customizing sites.

Great choice for bloggers and small businesses

2018-12-17

It's a great option for non-programmers and more robust than a tool like Wix or Weebly.

Pros

I use WordPress to run all my sites and my clients' sites. I build websites using WordPress for small businesses, and consider it the best option available. It's simple to use and there are some great themes and builders, as well as loads of documentation available.

Cons

There's a lot of junk plugins and themes in the WordPress ecosystem. Since it's open source, hacks are common and security can be an issue if you don't take appropriate measures.

Best CMS on the market!

2018-01-31

More importantly than anything else, it's allowed me to make a living for myself.

Pros

Lots and lots of pros. There's not a day that goes by where I don't use Wordpress. I use it to build almost any website that I can imagine and I'm not even someone who knows how to code. However, if you can code, you open up a whole new world of possibility. There are literally thousands of different plugins and themes, free and paid, that you can use to build your website. The WordPress community is probably the size of a small country and some of the best people around. Help is always just a search away.

Cons

It's a bit more challenging to use compared to similar types of software like Wix or Weebly.

Solid Site Builder

2018-12-06

The real benefit of a WordPress site is its blogging features. It was very easy and straightforward to add, organize, and maintain a beautiful looking blog section.

Pros

WordPress used to be mainly a blogging site but they have expanded to create an excellent site builder. There are many useful features that allow you to easily share and save posts, tag and categorize your pages, and their themes are pretty aesthetically pleasing.

Cons

I tend to prefer drag-and-drop website builders such as Wix or Weebly. It tends to be more user friendly so Wix's builder makes it harder to visualize what your change is about to look like.

WordPress: clean and simple blogging

2019-02-22

It can have fewer options for free users than platforms like Weebly, but it behaves more consistently than those platforms overall.

Pros

- Extremely intuitive and easy to use - Accessible for all members of an organization - Highly configurable as an admin - SEO/AdWords integration

Cons

- Switching between writing posts in plaintext and HTML can be inconvenient - Relatively few customization options for free users

Perfect if you're familiar with web design and easy to learn if you're not

2019-02-13

Pros

It's also very helpful software in general, but not basic like Weebly or Wix.

Cons

The only issue I've had was logging in the first few times when my administrative log in wasn't saved. It wasn't immediately clear how I was supposed to log in without having the url readily available on a Word document.

Great product, really bad UX.

Pros

Ok. I'll give it to ya, wordpress, you do a nice job at what you say you'll do. You can build a killer-looking website. You are one of the pioneers of the website-building & blogging industry. Once learned, you do a solid job. But I have some issues....

Cons

Maybe my expectations were just tainted because I used Weebly before I used you.

I've really enjoyed using WordPress!

Pros

This software has a lot of features, functionality, and themes.

Cons

For someone who is not familiar, and is only looking to set up and maintain a simple website for their small business, I recommend them using another platform such as Squarespace, Weebly, Wix or GoDaddy.

Blogging is still very much alive!

2018-07-10

Wordpress is a full-featured website creation tool that is easy to setup, use, and manage. It has many beautiful free templates to start with and is very customizable and flexible for more advanced users and administrators. Wordpress is open-source and can be setup locally or via paid plan using *.com option.

Pros

I've been using Wordpress for two decades now. And still at it. Some of my blogs are monetized, some are just for plain blogging and sharing life's experiences (which I find very therapeutic and helpful to my audience). Wordpress is easy to setup, use, and maintain. For starters, there are many free templates available. It's easy to change the look and feel of your site any time. And, it is highly extensible and customizable to include widgets and other web elements into the site.

Cons

There are now many easy/easier to setup drag-and-drop website makers like Wix or Weebly. Wordpress, compared to these, may be much more difficult for beginners.

The Granddaddy of DIY Web Design Platforms

2019-02-10

Once I got the hand of using WordPress it became an addiction. I've built many websites but never have I built a website as precise and broad in scope as my WordPress website.

Pros

Although it took me several weeks to really get proficient at using WordPress, once I got the hang of it I flew with it. With WordPress a designer can make anything from a simple blog to a major web site. With each upgrade WordPress gets easier and easier to use. There are multiple plugins for just about an need. So not only is one able to do just about any task, but odds are you'll be able to choose from multiple plugins to accomplish that task, being able to choose the plugin that works best for you. WordPress in unique in that you can build an absolutely customized website without any code if you so wish. And, like I mentioned, although there is a learning curve, once you get the hang of it, WordPress runs the risk of becoming an addiction.

Cons

Unlike Wix, Site123, Weebly, and other all-in-one, one-stop-shop website building platforms, WordPress has (a) had a considerable learning curve until I was able to use it proficiently; (b) WordPress is not an all-in-one platform.

Free Web Site Creation Tool needed for college assignment

2019-04-01

My experience with WordPress was for a college course I took. I used the free trial version. It worked well for my purposes and I was able to do everything I needed. Create pages, embed content, have discussions, link to external etc. There was a small learning curve, mainly because I had never used a website creation tool before. This is a solid option to try. If you are currently looking and can't decide, definitely put this on your list of companies to check out.

Pros

There are many great website creation tools out there, from the bare bones and simple to the complex and feature rich. Many are free, and some offer even more functionality for a little extra cost. I opted to try WordPress for one of my college assignments and it worked (with limitations) out well for me.

Cons

Some other students opted to use Weebly and Wix for their assignments and it seemed to go much smoother than my experience.

Wordpress' Updates make blogging easy for anyone to do.

2019-02-27

Pros

I blog frequently and the latest updates allow you to add "tiles" with text, images, and other formatting features. Previously you had to know html or were extremely limited in formatting your blog posts. It is easy to add plug-ins and customize your blog to maximize its exposure. The best thing is that Wordpress is free and since it is the largest blogging platform, almost every third-party tool integrates with Wordpress.

Cons

I have used Wix and Weebly and Squarespace, those software programs are much easier to use, add content, and update your design.

WordPress - website option to consider but must keep WordPress hosting, theme, and plugins updated.

2018-12-20

I like WordPress and the websites that can be quickly created using it. As long as the site is kept updated the site will perform great and be useful for all visitors. Depending on where you host the site... it can be one of the lowest cost ways to have a website (that is not ad-supported).

Pros

For most websites, it is usually lower overall cost to use WordPress than it is to use a service like Weebly or SquareSpace for a site.

Cons

The WordPress website admin/owner must make sure that the WordPress hosting, theme, and all plugins are kept updated at least monthly. Without that attention the website will degrade or not show at all. Once the website fails you better have a backup manager setup so you can restore the files and database or you may not get back into the website without using the sFTP access, which can require knowledgeable assistance.

Free Platform to Create your Website

2019-04-03

WordPress is as easy and you want or as complex as you need. I have used it as a blog for a very basic class project and I have used it to create a small company website for a local coffee shop. It takes some time to get use to it and the endless features. Give it time, play with it. You can find help online with what you need and you will be happy with the end result.

Pros

WordPress is free and there are endless ways to customize your site. You can choose from templates or you can go at it from scratch. There are some things you might need to buy, such as extensions or ways to upgrade themes or templates. WordPress can be used for a single blog, small company website, online store, or an online video platform.

Cons

There are no drag and drop website building features like you find on weebly. So it takes some time to get familiar with the site and learn how to use it.

The only platform I really use for web design: Self-hosted WP (the ORG version)

2018-09-20

Its professional, you won't embarrass yourself if you tell your friends at a party that you built your website on WP (as opposed to Wix or Weebly). I suppose I'm biased because its pretty much the only platform I use for building websites, but there's a reason for that.

Pros

The vast flexibility with different themes and plugins. There are so many themes that I rarely use the same one twice - I can get just the right theme to tailor to my needs for each website. I don't know coding and I don't need to - I have so many professional themes on my hard drive that for me, learning to code seems akin to reinventing the wheel. There are so many plugins, that if there's something not quite right that I need to fix, my first go to is to look for a plugin for it and I almost always find one. I have many plugins (about a dozen) which I use on every site, and am just used to having them around, so now I'm hooked.

Cons

Like I said before, I'm hooked. I'm too dependent on it, like a driver that can only drive in automatic. If I had to make a website on another platform for whatever reason, I would need to figure out a way to take these WP plugins and incorporate them, because I need them. I'm glad that situation has never come up. I've met some web designers who do client work (I only build sites for my own business) and they're really snobby about WP, saying its not real web dev or something. Maybe? They say I'm not a real web designer because I only use WP and use purchased themes. Okay, that might be true, but I seriously don't care. I can make stunning professional websites that not only look good and work well but are fast and are great for SEO. Websites that are much better than the ones I would get if I paid some 'real' web developer $800 to build one for me. Websites that are suited exactly to my business needs - including high-converting landing pages: I got 10% conversion on my landing page that I built on WP. I might not be a 'real web designer' because I didn't study coding in a school, but learning WP off Youtube was all it took to learn the skills I needed to run a successful business.

The most popular CMS for many reasons - we live and breathe WordPress!

2018-05-11

We build WordPress sites and solutions on a daily basis.

Pros

Where to start? WordPress is a great entry level to advanced solution for building and maintaining websites. You can use WordPress.com for a simple hosted website and you can choose your own theme and install plugins for extra functionality. Or, you can install the WordPress software onto your own hosting and take it to the next level. There are 1000's of free and paid WP themes and even more plugins that'll give you the look and functionality that you're looking for. With a HUGE online community, you can find the answers that you're looking for to scale and customize as needed.

Cons

Like SquareSpace or Weebly, the hosted WordPress.com version allows you to create a site easily but lacks a lot of functionality and options.

Awesome, user-friendly websites

2019-02-20

Pros

Thus, I have tried many site builders - Squarespace, Wix, and Weebly - as well as self-hosted, hand-coded sites.

Cons

Personally I love Wordpress for its robust features, and find it very easy to use. Some people who are just getting started with site building or need something super basic may find it intimidating, and would have an easier time with a simple site-builder.

A bit tough for beginners, but worth the time.

2018-03-10

Pros

Compared to most other site hosting companies, Wordpress is vastly customizable. Whatever you need, there is likely a plugin or app for it. Being able to create your own site from the ground up allows you to tailor your website to your brand, and avoid being forced to go with layouts and themes that other companies have set as their "only" themes that can be used. Wordpress takes a little more effort to set up, but the investment of time and energy is well worth it. I am slowly moving my current websites over to Wordpress, and plan to eventually have them all moved to custom sites that fit the brand for each site.

Cons

The one thing I have not found the ability to do, that I don't understand why it was overlooked, is the ability to have two blog pages. If Weebly can do it, when they can do pretty much nothing else new, there should be no reason why Wordpress can't.

Professional Looking Website With Ease

2018-10-14

Outstanding overall experience. For a small non-profit with limited time and budget, it's a great solution for our website creation. EASY to integrate with many other platforms!

Pros

Easy drag-n-drop for producing a very professional looking website. The advantage of Weebly over some of its competitors is that if you choose to change the template, your information stays intact. With other platforms you have to recreate content. With Weebly, you can change your website appearance at the click of a button and not lose what you have already created. Definitely worth upgrading to the Pro account!

Cons

Much simpler than Wordpress, better options than Wix.

Creating an online store through Weebly is fast and sites looks professional.

2018-09-24

Pros

The themes! They look professional and are fully responsive. All the themes are customizable with an easy drag and drop feature. You can quickly modify a theme so it's original to your brand. Weebly also has great backend tools for managing shipping(with real-time shipping rates) and inventory. The coupon builder and gift cards is a fun way to increase sales.

Cons

Migrating your website to a different platform (Squarespace, Wordpress etc...) won't be a simple process.

Decent, but not the best

2016-11-03

Weebly comes up as one of the top builders when searching online but I would recommend others over Weebly. WordPress is by far still my favorite but if you seek outside of WordPress, I think Wix or Squarespace will serve your business better.

Nowhere near as powerful as WordPress.

Great website building site that instantly helps to build, maintain websites on large scales

2019-04-13

okayish!

Pros

It has a simple and pleasing interface that is accompanies by a great website builder to create websites and build them instantly. The overall features and functionalities provided by Weebly outweigh most others when we compare it's competitive products in terms of pricing and other such factors. It is a great go-to software as it helps to manage websites, blog contents, e-commerce sites and much more.

Cons

Competitors like WordPress and Wix have ultimate functionalities at great costs when compared with Weebly.

Great for simple websites.

2018-09-04

Easy mock-up websites for clients without the time investment of Wordpress or other alternatives.

Pros

Drag-and-drop website creation is great, and Weebly makes it easier than any other WYSIWYG editor. Their templates are also a bit more modern than other editors.

Cons

Pricing for each individual website, instead of a bulk pricing deal for hosting multiple sites. Want a second site? That'll be a separate charge. I'd much rather pay a premium to host multiple sites.

It is easy to use and has a clean and beautiful interface but other than that it really isn't anything special. I liked the templates and how easy it was to get a website going.

Pros

Easy way to build an attractive website if you're not comfortable with a self hosted WordPress site.

Cons

Good tool for web building, not a lot for strategy on how to be successful online. There's a lot more to a good website than just the tools to build it.

Choose Another Content Management Software for Your Website

2019-03-21

I didn't enjoy using Weebly especially compared to other CMS systems like WordPress which are much easier to use and have near unlimited functionality.

Pros

but so are so many other CMS systems like WordPress.

Cons

The features are severely lacking and final website projects look like they were made without CSS in mind.

Just good for smaller ideas like personal websites

2018-10-05

Pros

I set up my personal website that lists some of my farming ideas and thoughts using Weebly. They offer more features even in the free plan. It is far more than enough for my needs as a small website builder. A beginner like me always opt for Weebly as everything will be guided through by FAQ videos.

Cons

This is good for basic purposes. Wordpress offers several more features than Weebly at a small fee.

Super easy way to create a website with almost no technical skill

2019-02-06

Easy to quickly build and deploy a good site

Pros

This is a very easy to use and intuitive platform for creating basic websites with very limited technical knowledge

Cons

Web hosting & Wordpress are so cheap and offer so much control, that it may be more appropriate to develop your site using that as a platform

Good for websites

2018-09-30

Pros

If you're looking to launch a simple website with custom CSS it's a good tool. Not the best but it does the job.

Cons

If you're looking for something I would go with Squarespace and if you're looking for something more complicated I would either use Wordpress or code the website.

Great for hobbies. Not great for business.

2018-05-17

Pros

Weebly now has beautiful designs that are easy to personalize and edit even if you've never touched a computer before.

Cons

The websites do not equip you with the features or functions that an online business needs for proper exposure to the internet world. Wordpress is your best option for that.

Easy to Navigate

2018-11-13

I used it for a little while when I was helping revamp a website for a small midwifery group. It was good, but I had a hard time getting used to it.

Pros

For those who are just beginning in website design, it can be a god send.

Cons

You can do way better with a little bit of knowledge of HTML and a website on wordpress.

Weebly is great, user-friendly interface for people that has never thought about creating a website!

2017-11-07

Great for website newbies that have 0 idea what they're doing.

Pros

It is so simple that you could set up a site in ten minutes flat. This is perfect for college kids making a portfolio or someone trying to showcase their work digitally.

Cons

So I have recently transitioned weebly sites to wordpress sites...and come to find out, you cannot backup your weebly site and/or transfer it to another platform/host.

Great software for beginner bloggers

2018-06-06

Pros

Like Wordpress, this software is great for anyone who wants to start blogging but might not know how to get started.

Cons

Customizing the look of your blog will be difficult for anyone who doesn't know how to code, so you might be stuck with the look of the template.

I Host My Site on Weebly

2018-11-14

Create a simple website for content hosting.

Pros

It is MUCH more intuitive than WordPress.

Cons

The free version of Weebly gives your site an address of yourdomain.weebly.com, which may be annoying to some. Also, I don't log in to edit my site a ton, so I am prone to forgetting how to do that. Usually Googling it gets me where I need to go.

Great for Personal or Small Business Use

2018-11-28

Debated using WordPress but went with Weebly instead - like the fact that we didn't need a separate hosting service.

Pros

So simple and easy to use - lots of drag and drop features that make it easy to customize the look and feel of your website.

Cons

Sometimes I want a bit more customization and it's a bit of a struggle to make it happen - e.g. two columns of text with a line between them. Price is also a bit steep for things like customized email address to go with a custom domain.

Easy for a non-experienced user

2018-12-14

I am currently migrating my website to using Wordpress, which I've found more challenging to navigate initially--but again this is due to lack of experience and understanding (and patience) of the "how to's" of much of this.

Pros

I have ZERO experience building a website and/or knowing the basics of SEO, etc. In fact, I was so intimidated by the prospect of creating a webpage that I kept postponing going into private practice. It all just felt very overwhelming. I have found Weebly incredibly easy and straightforward to use. The drag and drop features are fantastic and the general design/setup does look professional-enough for those on a budget.

Cons

There is still a learning curve in using the software for anyone who does not have experience building websites. Invest a little time and play around, that's my best advice. I use the free version, which does show the "Weebly" logo pretty prominently at the bottom of the webpage, which I'm not thrilled about, but it's not enough to make me pay for the upgraded features.

Make you own website easily

2018-09-06

Weebly is the website builder to deliver, it's easy and not expensive.

Pros

Weebly is easy to use, it's a solution I recommend to clients that don't have the budget for full website design with Wordpress or other platform.

Cons

The community is not as large as other platform like Wix or Shopify, so there is less plugins and templates.

Build a Website Free with Technical Experience Required

2017-11-17

Pros

Weebly is still one of my favorite web builders, even after 5 years- which means they continue to modify the platform for simplicity, beauty, and speed. I love that you can alter the HTML or CSS yourself, if you need to change the site for yourself or a client. Weebly has a robust small business and e commerce upgrade, that’s still simple and beautiful. Customer support is superior, with great tutorials, a huge online community, or learn something new.

Cons

If you’re going to have a huge site, it can run somewhat clunky. WordPress is the same way and the only fix is to have your own server, which isn’t a solution for small to medium size businesses.

First website creator I ever used and it delivers!

2018-08-23

Pros

You're not going to build the best website using this but it will definitely let you have your own website in just a few minutes with some drag-and-drop and clicks. It's affordable and simple.

Cons

I now use WordPress but considering using weebly for small websites.
