Bye Bye Weebly
My current website and blog are hosted on Weebly. I must say that Weebly has given me more trouble than any other web service I’ve used. Every single time I’ve tried to edit my blog a box pops up that says:
Weebly encountered an exception. Please try your last request again.
Sorry about that. In any case, click me and I’ll go away.
I proceed to “click me” so it goes away, but of course it does not go away. It takes me 15 minutes just to access the page where I can type my blog, then I have to “publish” it multiple times before it actually goes through. At first I thought it was an error that Weebly would fix, so I continued to blog on their site. Four months later the error still occurs. One of the main reasons I haven’t kept up with my blog is due to difficulty in accessing it. So finally, I’ve decide to take some time to import all of my blogs to WordPress. Now I find that Weebly does not have a tool which allows you to export their blogs! If anyone has any tips on how I might export my old blog from Weebly into my new one, please let me know. The only solution I can currently think of is to cute and paste each blog individually. The archives obviously won’t match up but at least I’ll have my information in one space.
So what attracted me to Weebly in the first place? Well they market themselves to be the “Easiest way to create and publish a website online”. Oh yeah and they are FREE. I learned that you get what you pay for. Stay tuned for a new and improved website and blog from me.
