    Maybe I'm blind but I don't see a left site tab with a Advanced Feature. My editor is also different from the one that displays the option in other posts.

      The reason you were unable to locate it is because you looking for instructions on the Flash forums while your site has been built using our HTML editor.


      I've merged your question to the relevant thread. Take a look at the instructions located at the top of this thread and let us know should you require further assistance.

      Thanks for your reaction. But a was looking for a prev/next button like that one in the flash editor). Is that option not available in the html5 editor?

      Unfortunately this feature is not available at the moment. 

      You may place two buttons on each page and link them to the previous and next pages according to the page.

      Please make sure you are modifying an HTML5 site, not a Flash site - the instructions above are designated for this platform.


      The Link to option is available on the floating bar once the button is clicked on:

    How do you underline a link?  I see throughout this website dozens of one- or two-word pieces of text that are usually blue and underlined, the standard format for a text link to another location, or page, or website. Or on some sites it is just blue text, but when you mouseover, it underlines to indicate it's a link.  I can make a text button but my options for text style are simply regular, bold, or italic.  How do I underline it?

      Unfortunately, you cannot underline the text on a button. The underlined text you're referring to in your reply above is valid for text in a paragraph, not a button.

    it's the menu button..which directs to other pages but I can't find the link to do this. The Heading does overlap this but I move it down to work the menu buttons.

      The title of your page was obstructing the menu buttons. I have resized it and saved the changes. Please enter the editor and review them, and if you are pleased with them, publish your site.

    Since I adapted a WIX template for a non-profit organization, there is already a "DONATE" button on the home page. When, in the site's edit mode, I click on the button, a box comes up with a "link" option. When I click on that, a PayPal page does not come up even though the button contains some sort of URL leading to PayPal. How do I modify the URL or HTML code so that a PayPal page comes up that would accept a donors credit or debit card and transfer amounts donated to the organization's bank account? 


    • Shai Wix Team

      Replied by Shai May 15, 2014



      There is a specific built in button for PayPal donations.


      Please go to your editor, click Add > Apps, and choose PayPal Button. Then click on the button and choose settings, and select Donations under button type. Finally, add your PayPal account information.

    Hi, Somehow my "blog" tab got cut off, so when you pull up my website, the "blog" tab is not visible. I've been looking everywhere in the editor to find how to correct this, but I don't see anything that helps. Also, can I link my blog that is already setup from another blog source to my Wix website?

    Thanks Monica

      Hi Monica,


      This is because your menu is longer than your page. To fix this, you need to resize your menu so it will in your master page (The white rectangle in your site).

      Please let us know if you need more help.

      Https is currently not supported by Wix. While linking objects to urls, you should use the Http prefix. We're aware of this issue and we're working on resolving it as soon as possible. I apologize for the inconvenience this had caused you, and for your cooperation.

      Best regards, WIX Team.

      Please try and use this shortened address: http://bit.ly/1kLurBk


      If you experience further difficulties with generating a working link please let us know what site, page and button you are trying to link to so that we may test this matter.

    Buttons change does NOT take effect! On the editor it looks perfect: all have the exact same design, but when I save & publish: NOTHING happen!

    Why hasn't the defenitions takes effect?

      I have tested them and the online version has the same colours and effects that the editor version. 

      Are these buttons showing different at your end?

      Please provide us with a screen shot of the problem. For instructions on how to take a screenshot, please use this link.

      To upload the screenshot, simply click on the "Upload" button and follow the steps.
