Not to sound ungrateful but Weebly's webpage editor is an non-self expainatory concoction that relies far too much on it's 'drag and drop' feature. This feature should be backed up with specific pop-up windows or dialog boxes (or even word balloons [callouts] that hint at or point to an impending error or other feature that you may have overlooked. Instead you'll drag and drop a feature trying to get a specific result only to find out that you've altered your entire layout (when you drop it in what you thought was the right place but instead it isn't). The editor is dependent on very minute specific 'drops'. For example, if you want to add space between two objects you can't drag the 'space icon' to the middle of the right or left of these objects -it has to go to the center (where they both meet -bottom of the top object touching or above the top of the next) . But nothing tells you that until you've done it a dozen or so times and your fist is all too ready to punch out your computer screen.
Oh yeah, there's no undo button -which leaves you destined to hand correct all of the mistakes you've made -essentially doing the same thing twice as you try again to get (things) right. This is all part of a type of pseudo design theory or minimalistic approach to designing a thing. Google is swamped in this BS philosophy. Instead of labeling things with words they rely on symbols or icons, many of which are not intuitive (recongnizable) and you have to click or activate these icon-buttons in order to see what they do.
This current blog article I'm writing here is another example of 'pseudo design theory'. While creating it I made a mistake and published it without the title added. When I tried to fix the mistake I looked around for an 'edit post' button but found nothing. Then I clicked into the paragraphs of the post itself and all of a sudden it's now editable. I didn't have to do that searching if I had a button to push in the fist place. Life is full of these micro-aggravations. That was just a small one for this website builder but there are plenty of others here too that are bigger. Designers think design means 'no words'. "A picture is worth a thousand words" is a lie in the world of design if you ask me. You sacrifice speed and efficiency when you dump a few words for a big dumb watered down image or 'symbole' or not making functions visible until a damn mouse hovers over it or you accidentally discover it while doing something else.
All things said it's a good effort. In about 10 years Weebly's web page editor may be the best out there (best free one that is). What's worse is when you run into bad designing of a webpage editor that you actually paid for. Man, the anger there is tremendous!
I'm George Alan Booker and I created the character known as Zombie Racer and then everyone and his mother started turning it into shitty video games and smelly gym shoes on the Internet so now it's just all over the damn place. Anyway I used to work in comic books, animation, and TV advertising storyboarding. Now I'm returning to comics again with the start of this website. Check the site ledger on the Home Page (Graphic Storytelling.com and Gallery subheadings listings) for samples of my artwork. Follow me on Facebook at www.facebook.com/zombieracer for satirical jokes and political commentary (it's where I chill at).
