This article explains how to use the Weebly archive, from the sidebar, to access old Weebly blog articles.
Put the Archive into the Weebly Sidebar (if it isn't there already)
Click the "Sidebar" to open that menu area, and then drag the "Sidebar" widget to the sidebar. You can place it higher or lower, depending on the other sidebar elements you've included; how often you use the sidebar; and whether you want your visitors to work through the archives or read the other sidebar elements first.
Smart Planning for Using Your Weebly Archive
- The publication date of the article.
- The title of the article.
- The URL of the article.
If you're signed into a Wordpress site as an author, you usually have the option to edit the article you're reading. I don't see that option in Weebly.
Therefore, to update an old Weebly article, it's easier to go into the Weebly editor for the blog. Then I click on the Archive month, since I was clever enough to log the publication date. It does not take much scrolling to find the article. You could even search for a keyword from the title, using your browser's search function.
Your Visitors Can Use the Weebly Archive
There are better ways for visitors to explore a site, but it's a possibility. If you want to hide old articles from your readers, maybe you should remove the archive from the Weebly sidebar.
