There are quite a few reasons why you might want to allow other people to edit and update your website. Maybe you want to give co-workers access to help keep your homepage content fresh, or maybe you want to give a friend access to co-author a blog with you.
All this and more is now possible with our newly released Collaborative Website Editing features.
Here’s how it works:
There's now a new tab in Weebly called Editors. This tab enables you to invite other people to help you edit and build your website. Just enter the emails of your invitees, choose their role, and type up a short message to add them.
New editors receive an email invitation with a link they can click to get started, and the website is then listed as a site they can contribute to in their site dashboard.
If you’re a free user, you can invite an unlimited number of people to administer the site with you. If you’re a Pro user, you can restrict people’s editing access to specific pages or limit access to the dashboard only for viewing site stats, blog comments, and form entries.
If multiple people are editing a site at the same time, the system will intelligently show you which pages the others are editing so your updates don't conflict with one another.
We've created a quick demo video to show you the new features in action:
Collaborative editing was one of our most highly requested features and we’re extremely excited to release it live to the millions of websites on Weebly.
Also included in this release is the option to copy a site. When you press the “more” button in the site dashboard, you’ll see the option to copy the site which generates a duplicate copy you can use for a similar purpose.
We hope you enjoy these new updates and want to thank everyone for your loyal support as we continue to build the best platform for website creation online!
