A perfect example would be a photographers portfolio website. They may have different pages for different types of photos such as nature, cars even maybe something small such as street signs. Having a car page would mean, no images of nature should be in the gallery of the car page, unless the photo over laps each category. Then the photo could be an exception.
Hi Glyn, You can indeed keep your domain name. Domain registration is a separate process to site building, so there's no risk of getting one stuck on a platform you don't want to use any more. Wix is great at walking you through the domain transfer process step by step when you sign up. There's an official video guide here if you'd like a sense of how it's done. Hope that's helpful! Ta, Fred

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.
With the initial questions out of the way, Wix will ask you if you trust the ADI enough to let it build an example website for you, or if you want to build everything by hand. Going with the ADI is a much more efficient approach, especially since you can come back later on and customize every little detail of your site. You’re not stuck with the initial suggestions that Wix gives you.
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.
Apart from editing what’s inside your content sections, you can also change the overall designs of the sections themselves. For instance, when we hover the mouse cursor over the “My Treatments” section, a small button pops up in the top left corner labeled “Design.” After clicking on it, a whole new panel shows up with some alternative design styles to choose from:
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.
Once in the navigation, you can choose between many different styles of menus. Once you choose the navigation you would like, WIX will automatically include each of your pages within the navigation bar. To place on your page, just drag and drop. Once on your page, you can fix to the whichever size you would like. Big or small, it is up to you. Also remember to place within the header of the page, as the navigation will then show on each page of your site.
The one area where you might want to have a deeper look is the Settings menu – accessible from the main sidebar. This is where you can find all the key settings of your site, such as the name, general info, integrations with other tools, payment options, currency, and a lot more. Even if you don’t end up changing anything there, it’s still a good idea to have a look at these options and see what’s available.
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.
