There are 6 types of pages you can add to your Weebly site:

  1. Standard page — A new empty page that follows your template theme . You can customize the page with drag-and-drop elements like any other Weebly pages. You can set the page to private/public and customize the page URLs in the SEO settings.
  2. Blog Page — A new blog page template where all your articles live. Writing new articles is pretty seamless on Weebly. The blog also comes with a few features such as author, categorization, RSS feed, and comments.
  3. Category Page —  Creates a new page that organize similar products in a single page.
  4. Product Page — Adds a new product page to your site.
  5. External Page — Creates a link in the navigation that links to an external site.
  6. Non-clickable Menu — Creates a navigation menu item that's not clickable. Use this to organize your sub pages without redirecting to a new page.

For the purpose of this tutorial, let's create a new standard page.

How to add a sub page in Weebly

First, create 2 new standard pages and name them sub page 1 and 2 respectively.

Note that these are empty pages for now.

To create the sub pages, simply drag sub page 1 & 2 slightly to the right beneath the new page so they are indented.

The indented pages have now become sub pages!  Weebly will automatically create a dropdown menu for your sub pages.

You can verify this by clicking on the navigation menu and look for the sub pages.

Using non-clickable menu

This is an optional step.

If you want to create a menu that doesn't redirect to another page like this:

Then create a new non-clickable menu when you create a new page and follow the same process for creating sub pages.
