Weebly’s Settings are also able to be customized in many different ways to fit the needs for many different types of websites. In this article, we’ll go over Pages settings discussing how to reorder pages, adding pages, changing the home page, edit the page name and how to copy/delete a page.
Drag pages up/down to reorder and left/right to create sub-pages
As an example, the first spot on the list is the home page which you can switch any page to. In the above image, we are moving the Home page down and the Blog page will take the Home pages position.
Click the plus icon to add a new web page
After you click on the plus sign, a Pages drop-down will be displayed providing page options you can add to your website.
Once the page you would like is selected, you will have one last option to name the page to your liking, otherwise, it will stay as the default title until later edited. It’s also worth noting the page you select may have pre-filled information, like Products, which will automatically load your Weebly Store information for use if needed.
