Weebly is an online website builder program which allows the user to create a modern website. Users can upload photos, videos, add text and widgets easily using drag and drop so that even novice users can create a professional looking website in minutes. Weebly is an HTML based creator, however users may want to increase the multimedia options on their site by adding Shockwave Flash (SWF) files.

Tips and warnings

  • Weebly free accounts enable you to upload unlimited individual files of no more than 10MB each. If your SWF file is larger than this, you will need to upgrade to a pro account.
  • Back up any files before uploading to Weebly.
  • Save a copy of your SWF files for future use.
  • Weebly is an HTML focused provider and not meant for the creation of flash sites.
