    thank you

  • Singing A New Song by Shayla Marie on February 7, 2019

    It said "Could not find any content in your weebly blog to export. " . Can you help?

  • Cindy Walther on May 15, 2019

    it did import the content but not the layout. What can I do?

  • kruthie on June 11, 2019

    I've tried it several times, but I keep getting a Gateway Timeout error.

    Thanks for the useful video! I may have missed it but if I have a paid domain on Weebly and I want to migrate to WordPress, what should I do differently? Also wanted to ask when you migrate contents from weebly to WordPress, does all the captions, alt text and H1-H6 tags automatically migrate to WordPress like the text? Or do you have to re-do all of that from scratch? Thank you!

    Will this work for an ecommerce site? I've got quite a few products loaded in my store on a weebly site. Also, it doesn't delete the content from Weebly does it? Finally, can you transfer to a temporary domain so you can edit and resolve issues without disrupting traffic to the weebly site? Thank you!

    I was so hopeful this would work. I am getting the same no blog to export. I never set up a blog just a regular website. Will this not work? I don't recall the video mentioning that it had to be a blog

    I own my URL (www.RoofBoxGuy.com) but instead of being able to update Nameservers, I had to go to Settings > SEO > Header and use the included stuff. When I did that, saved it, published it in Weebly, it "worked," but the site kept accessing stripe and weebly and roofboxguy and on and on and on and on until I stopped the site loading. It did this for as long as I let it, finally hitting the X to stop loading the site. It did look just like my Weebly version.
    I returned my Weebly Header back to what it was because this was bad. What's up? And my website didn't look at all like a website when it got imported to WordPress.

    WEEBLY SUCKS!! they deleted paid sites without warning!

  • Sami Sattva on February 19, 2020

    I had the same issue as everyone else, then disabled the SSL, removed the trailing backslash, then tried again and it worked! Not sure if it was the ssl disable or removal of slash, but it worked. Thanks for the tool!

    tool is not working. it is starting but there is no chance to download something. Another try gave a 504 gateway fault on the site…

    Is there a tutorial on how to convert a Weebly merchant page (pay site) to a free page? My wife setup a business page that costs $35 per mos because she had it setup with a shopping cart, accepting credit cards, etc.

    She wants to keep the website, but convert it to more of a gallery page. Any suggestions?

  • Ong Kuan lin on April 14, 2020

    Is the website content editable after we migrate it to a new web host?

  • Modesty & Fashion on September 4, 2020

    I am having so much trouble moving my weebly website from Square to WordPress it's not recognizing I have a Weebly website because it's not directly through Weebly it's through Squareup. Any suggestions??

  • John Thorpe on September 18, 2020

    This does not work.

  • Ana Cunha on November 16, 2020

    Hello, how do you create a new domain for WordPress if you already have the domain on Weebly? I suppose you can't create a domain that already exists.

  • Arco sin control on January 5, 2021

  • Winston Weatherby on February 24, 2021

    What if you already have Weebly on bluehost and want to switch to wordpress on bluehost?

  • Tyler Hoff on May 21, 2021

    I'm getting same issue as Bill… any ideas why I might be getting the no content found on this site error? I have over 100 pages and over 90 blogs? Thank You!🙏👍

    The plugin works but you need to deactivate the SSL (httpS) on your website.
    Probably on your website you have a function that forces the httpS also when you type just http.
    So try to deactivate this function, but if are redirect anyway on the httpS version you need to deactivate the SSL just to do this migration, then you can reactivate it.
    For me i had yo deactivate the SSL in the weebly website settings, then i had to deactivate the SSL on Cloudflare (just because i use Cloudflare).
    Was a mess to reactivate it but it works!
