I came across a post by Website Builder Expert about the comparison between Weebly and Wordpress.
I am copying the content from the website here to share what has been posted:
Having a tough time choosing between Weebly vs WordPress? Including how easy or difficult they are to use, the pros and cons of each website builder?
You’re not alone.
This is a highly debated topic and it’s one that’s very confusing at times. But in this article, including the video below, we’re going to explore fully the differences between Weebly and WordPress – in non-technical way so it’s easy to understand!
But first, let’s go over what exactly is Weebly and what is WordPress.
Weebly is one of the easiest website builders in the market. They allow you to drag and drop content into a website, so it’s very intuitive to use (click here to see our opinion on Weebly).
By using Weeby’s website building elements, you can literally drag them into your website and have a website built relatively quickly, and painlessly. The beauty of this system is that you can pretty much drag the elements to wherever you want – so it’s not very restrictive on where and how you place your website content.
Weebly’s elements include pictures, paragraphs, videos, buttons, maps, contact forms – basically all the basics for website building.
WordPress is often known as a blogging tool for people who want to blog about their interests. However, nowadays, WordPress is being used on non-blog websites, including e-Commerce websites.
There is a much larger community supporting WordPress, mainly because they have a lot of different designers and programmers that provide services and build tools (such as plugins) for WordPress users. So finding WordPress experts is relatively easy.
This is why a WordPress has gained a lot of attention and is favored, because the support community is extensive and you will always be able to find help there (for a fee of course!)
The disadvantage of WordPress is that it is a lot more difficult to use, especially when compared to using Weebly.
There is a reason why the support community (i.e. designers and programmers) for WordPress is extensive – most people using WordPress have a harder time learning how to use it properly due to technical challenges, and hiring WordPress specialists to help build or maintain a website is definitely more expensive than Weebly.
On the other side of the coin, you can do a lot more complex functions with WordPress, but you will need to either be proficient at using it, or be willing to hire someone to build it for you.
Why Choose Weebly?Here are some reason why one should try Weebly to build websites:
My passion is always on how a CoP can be cultivated in different contexts. In my previous study, I explored teachers' dimensions of identities and how these identities influenced their level of engagement in an online community. For the purpose of my presentation at the 4th SoTL Symposium in AKEPT, I presented my research findings on the process of an online community development among first year university students.
This is indeed an action research project. It took me a while to really sit down and compile every single evidences and data to support the findings. This study involved at least three loops, however I did not explain everything as the focus of this presentation revolves around the issues of the development of an online community and the learning from reflection writing.
Alhamdulillah, I won the best presentation - something that I had never dreamed or imagined! Thanks Allah! Here is my presentation.
