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?
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.
This will start to set the colour of that part of the page. Just click the right colour for you. To set the background of the rest of your page. Click on the background element. Here you can choose a colour for this or even add an image. To add an image, click on the image button within the background element. You will see many images from WIX, or you can add your own. The WIX images are usually free to use. You can upload an image from here or use one of your already uploaded images. This is how to upload an image for everything.
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.
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.
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
Just like the WIX editor, you can change and customise anything on your site. You will probably find some changes you would like to make and ADI is perfect as it allows you too. The only difference is, if you want to change a part of the site, all the information shows in a column to the left of the screen. This can make your use of the ADI much quicker and get your website published as quick as a possible.

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.

To add social icons, you can simple use WIX free icons or icons from Google. To get icons from with, simply go to the add element once again and click on social. You will see the many icons including Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Instagram, Pinterest, YouTube and many more. Just drag and drop these icons from the social add element to the right part of your page.
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:
