Weebly's Brand New Sections Element Explained

September 10, 2016

What is this new "section" element?

Nowadays, most modern websites have sections on each page, where the content is divided and each section has their own unique background. This improves the overall aesthetics, as having lots of content on plain white background is boring. Weebly's new section element lets you create these "sections" on your website page by just dragging and dropping the block. Better yet, you can even configure the properties of the backgrounds, such as their background. But wait, it gets better. You can even have a seamless video as the background of a section! Not only that, but Weebly offers predefined "section" layouts, where you can simply click on a newly created section, choose a layout you like, and that's it! With this, you can literally have a professional website made in under 5 minutes. Very impressive!

How is this so significant?

Simply put, this new feature will drastically change the way you build websites. You will now have the ability to create state-of-the-art websites with interactive content straight in Weebly. No external code, no headaches, just simple drag and drop. We've jumped on board and either have updated or are updating all of our themes to work with this feature. Not only do you get sections, but you also get background header video! This new element brings an unlimited variety of possibilities, and we can't wait to see what you guys can come up with.

What does this mean for Weebly?

Without a doubt, this feature strongly reinforces Weebly's position as the best online website builder on the market. Prior to this update, other web builders were slowly catching up to Weebly and some even surpassing it in several departments. But with this update, Weebly is now absolutely the best webpage builder available, no questions asked. It's important to note that Weebly is the only provider to offer such feature. With Weebly's app store, strong community, great customer support, and flexibility, we can firmly say that Weebly is the best in the field.

No other website building software provides this much flexibility, power, and style in such a user-friendly and intuitive manner. Weebly is one of the best investments you can make for your website.

Final thoughts

This is exactly what Weebly users needed, and despite this update seeming so minor, it has the potential to transform your business. Play around with the feature and explore how it can be used. The important part is to not go overboard with using sections. Keep each page with sufficient content but not too much, or you'll scare your audience. Also, be sure to use matching colors for each section. If you want to establish a strong brand, you'll have to work on developing a "theme" for your website. It's easy to do, but requires some thought.
