    In addition to giving you the chance to create a simple web site very quickly, Weebly offers many advanced features, which go beyond a basic site. For instance, if you know HTML, you can make the changes with the integrated HTML editor. However, if you do this, be careful that you don't spoil the template you have started with.

    Some of the other advanced features you will find useful are related to adding multimedia to your site, generating revenue, or adding such advanced features as polls or feed readers.
