Brand-New Header Functionality
We’ve made headers way more powerful, and easier to work with. You will now be able to place elements in headers, and instead of the static header heights, you can now dynamically re-size them however you like!
New Sections Element
You can now add multiple body sections on a single page! By dragging the new Sections element onto a page, you can create groups of elements, which can then be easily moved around a page, or copied to other pages on the site.
One of our most highly-requested features is finally here! Your headers and page sections can now have dynamic backgrounds, which you can customize with color, images, and even video. Upload your own videos, or make use of our included library for you to use freely on your site!
Brand New Sections Layouts
Header and page sections now come with more categories, and varieties of layouts. This makes it even easier to get a great-looking website online as quickly as possible!
Sections will be launching today, but it will only be available to use on themes that have been updated to take advantage of the new features. To make sure that this launch is as smooth as possible, we’ll be slowly updating all themes over the next few weeks. The first theme that will have Sections support is Birdseye. This will be shortly followed by Squared, Brisk, Dusk, Clean Lines, Impact, Journey, and Cento.
We are aiming to have all themes updated by the second week of September.
Which Weebly Designer Platform plans will get Sections?
All Sections features will be available with both Pro and Business plans.
Will Sections support the old adaptive themes?
No. Sections will only be available in our current 24 responsive themes. The plans will be updated individually over the several weeks following launch.
How will Sections impact current Client sites?
If a Client site is using a stock Weebly theme that has Sections support, and they have permission to edit any pages, they will have access to Sections. We do not have a Client permission setting for Sections at this time.
Will I be able to opt-in to using a Sections-updated theme?
No. The themes will be updated automatically, behind-the-scenes.
Will custom themes based on stock themes be updated?
No. You will need to start over with a supported stock theme. In the near future, we will have documentation available on our Weebly Developer site to assist with converting custom themes to support Sections.
