    Where is the Wix Embed code?

    I am the founder of the Official Wix Profile Guild on a website called GaiaOnline.

    I developed a guide for members of the Gaia community to use Wix as a profile on their profile page on GaiaOnline & as a result thousands of users are using Wix as personal profile on the site, HOWEVER, the embed code is no longer available when publishing the Wix as it used to provide which has formed a complication with updating my guides.

    Why was the Embed Button removed and is there still a way that the embed code can be obtained?

    Without it, the GaiaOnline community will no longer be able to use Wix, as to Gaia uses Cascading Style Sheets  (CSS) coding. This effects both the Gaia community and Wix. Without a form of converting the embed code, Wix will no longer be able to be used on Gaia, thus thousands of members will lose the option of using easy to make forms of flash profiles, and Wix will lose thousands of customers that currently use Wix for their Gaia profiles.

      Please note that your site is built using the HTML5 editor, and this thread applies to sites built using Flash.

      What exactly are you trying to do with your site?


      Best regards

    YEP! I pretty much wasted 3 hours of my life making a website for my Gaia profile. Wow. I just found this after creating my website. That wasn't a very smart move removing the embed code option...

      We're sorry you feel this way, but this is not a feature we plan to support in the future. We still hope to see you here on Wix.

    Did you know that erasing a embed code makes more people want to quit wix and start another website maker. I spent some hours making site for nothing , thank you WIX for wasting my precious hours.

    So can we insert our own html code in the end?

      I'm confused. Is it that we cant add our own codes or we cant get the codes from our wix site?

      You cannot edit your site's HTML code directly, but you can add your own code by using the HTML App (adding HTML Widgets).

      Embedding your Wix Flash site is no longer supported.


      Let us know if you need any additional help - we'll be happy to further assist!

      Hey  leonleonneo,


      Unfortunately this is not possible. Currently you can add your own code only by using the HTML widget mentioned by Yoav above.

    Could you tell us why you removed the embed code? I dont want to create a website but a page to put on my profile. I supported you guys and introduce your site to my friends and now you remove the embed away? What have we ever done to deserve this?

    I really want you guys to think this through and realize that you lost alot of customers by doing this change.By letting us have the embed we would actually be sponsoring wix in diferent sites like imvu and gaiaonline and a whole bunch of other websites.It's sad for me to realize that I needed to stop using wix for it has no use for me it I can't show my customized site on other sites.So I hope you guys think this through hard and I hope this will change soon for the better.

    Ive recently started using wix, and ive been trying to create a website. My website requires users to be able to download audio. So i just found out the shopping cart doesnt support that. So i figured i could embed a music player. But wix doesnt support embedded coding any longer. So basically what ive gather from reading all the responses is, it's better to learn coding and go with other open source programs.

      You can embed external code by using the HTML platform.

      With the HTML App you can test and add your own HTML code to your Wix site.

      For more information click  here.

      If you are planning to sell media, you can use the Getonic All-in-One Store app. For more information and instructions click  here.
