On the slideshow you will get the option to manage the slides. To edit the images o your slide show, click through the slides and choose slide background. You can choose from your own library of images, WIX’s own and even set it as a colour. Different slides will also have different features within them such as boxes and buttons. In the background settings of the images, always use scale to fit unless you want it otherwise. You can also choose for the slideshow to auto play, how long a slide shows for and other options.
With WIX, you also get a free domain. The main problem with this domain is that ‘WIX’ will be attached to the address. This is bad for search results and your website, if you want it to be successful. Therefore you would want to buy your own domain an connect it to your website. Names can be expensive, especially premium names. This would involve country codes such as ‘.co.uk’ and ‘.ie’ a lot as well as short-tail keywords such as cars or amazing cars.

If your template comes with images, these can be changed too. This is what makes Wix the best – you can really make the website your own, one click at a time. Don’t like an image? Click it and switch it out for something you do like. It could be a saved photo from your business, or one of Wix’s free images – there are tons of design possibilities to be explored here.

To add a blog to your WIX site it is very simple. There is a specific element to add your blog to your site. Depending on your theme. To manage your blog, go to your blog manager and from here you can easily add a new blog post. Titles should be engaging to draw readers in and you usually can set an author. In the body of the blog images and text can be added. You can also add your post into categories, which help to separate blogs into specific folders. This is due to people being interested in different blogs. Tags can also be added, which help with SEO. Once you’re finished creating a blog post, publish the post to your site.


Site Settings- Site settings are almost more important than any other part of the website. Without these settings your site won’t be published (If you don’t want a WIX domain) or be able to certain other elements to your site. Here you will find where to connect your sites domain name, if you would like your own. You will also where to add your sites favicon, a professional mailbox, analytics and much more.
Similarly to adding almost anything to your site, to add a gallery, you use the add element again. Each gallery you will see will be different from each other. From professional looking galleries to the less so professional. Wherever you choose to place a gallery on your site, always make sure the images are appropriate for the page or your website.

First of all, you should know what your website will be about. This is the topic of your website. When starting to build a website WIX actually asks you this question, to suggest themes suitable towards your idea. You should also have an idea of what content is needed for the website. Is the website built on images, if it is a photography blog? Or/and, will you need an about page for example?
