    Is it possible to do this with my website, which was created using Weebly? If so, could you please provide instructions as to how to do it?

    Thank you in advance for taking the time to answer.

    Hello,

    If you can access your web-server directory, you can implement this - it does not matter how your website was created. 

    But it appears that Weebly does not allow FTP access according to this knowledgebase document:http://kb.weebly.com/ftp-access.html

    I ran a few tests and saw that it might not be possible.

    This is because Weebly is a WYSIWYG web builder - and the HTML files are generated by a backend server.

    It is important to have FTP access because of the PHP scripts that need to be added in your webpage directory.

    Sorry about that.

    However, I will play a little with this and let you know what I find.

    Thank you for your patience.

    I'm sorry - but this seems to be currently an unsupported feature in Weebly.

    I will ask my colleagues to take a second look and advice.

    Thank you for your patience.

    Since PHP is required in step 4 of the guide, it doesn't look like it's possible with Weebly:

    Can I use PHP, MySQL and Other Server-Side Languages?
