Basically, weak verbs are regular verbs and strong verbs are irregular ones, though the terms are old-fashioned. Where did you get the list from?

First I read in a book then I searched on the Internet and I got what I posted here. Four types of weak verbs. Do you mean the website's information is not correct?

I would say that 2-4 are strong verbs. If weak verbs are regular verbs then the only way you could divide them into types would those that take -ed and those that just take -d. However, this is a distinction I haven't seen made, though the use of weak/strong predates my time as a teacher.
