Wix is the world’s most popular website design platform. It serves over 110 million people in 190 countries, with 45,000 new sign-ups every day. Looking to join them? Our step-by-step guide will show you how to use Wix, and just how easy it is to get started. So if you’re wondering how to create a Wix website that’ll impress every visitor, it’s totally doable – as a drag-and-drop website editor, Wix is super easy to learn and use.
Toolbar- The Toolbar element is another element which is great. You will find a toolbar, rulers, grid-lines and snap to objects. These help users build their websites. Grid-lines help you arrange your websites in a nice layout. The snap to objects is a great part of the tool’s element. This helps users place objects and apps on their website easily. It uses the grid-lines to snap the objects to edges.
However, the smart ADI assistant is far more restrictive than Wix Editor. So if you’ve been inspired to really put your stamp on your site – or if you’re simply not happy – you can easily switch to Wix Editor mode whenever you like. Think about it, though, because it’s harder to reverse the process; you’d need to save your last ADI version, then restore it.
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.
The buttons/arrows which users can use to move from slide to slide can be edited also within the settings. These can be edited to match your websites theme. An animation can be set for the slideshow. This is how the slides come into view. Most animations are a bit crazy and swirl into screen whereas some are more professional and come into view gently and appropriately for a professional website. To edit any text on the slideshow, just double click on any text. Buttons can be direct to other pages of the website or other websites, both using a URL/web address.
However, this lack of creative control can be frustrating. Wix ADI is not nearly as flexible as Wix Editor, which offers smooth drag-and-drop design and easily editable text boxes. So, while you can enjoy simplicity with both Wix tools, the Wix Editor offers more freedom. It also builds more personal sites, thanks to its Premium plan upgrades and wide choice of apps.
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.
