It says go to link and its not click-able. Im not getting any error messages but when i go to the live site it does not let me click on the link. Ive also been sure to publish the changes and still nothing has worked.  :)

      Hey,

       

      The links are unclickable since the "REDUCED!" and "MUST GO!" text boxes are covering them. Please click on them and resize them so they don't cover the entire text that lies behind them.

       

      If you require further assistance, please let us know.

    Hi,

    I'm setting up my first website from scratch, but my buttons have started defaulting behind the background so I can't click on them again in order to edit them. I tried moving the "Page" backwards as much as I can go in hopes of getting the buttons back to click status, but it hasn't worked as of yet. Does anyone know what I did to have this happen and how to change it?

    Hi can anybody help me and tell me how to link a homepage to my brand logo without having a "HOME" tab... if you know what i mean? My logo is currently linked to my shop- which means when i click on my brand logo, it takes the customer to the shop- i want it to be diverted to my homepage (but dont want a home tab)

     

    Please help?

      Hi,

       

      The page "Shop" is currently set as your Homepage and having the logo linked to your Shop means it is linked to your Homepage. You can set a different page as your home page.From the left side of your Editor, click the Pages icon >  decide which page you want to use as your home page and click the Settings wheel next to that page > under Settings and SEO, check the box next to Set as homepage.

       

      Then you can click on your logo > Link To and select your new homepage.

      Then you can hide the homepage from the menu.

       

      To hide a page from your navigation menu: From the left side of the Editor, click the Pages icon > click theSettings wheel for the relevant page > in the Settings and SEO window, check the box next to Hide from menu > click Done.

       

      Please contact us should you require further assistance.

    The "Older Posts" button on my blog isn't working. When I select it these are the only options I am given:

    I have tried renaming the button, moving it to the front, etc. but nothing works. Since it is specific to the blog when I select it I do not see a "Link to" option, because it should, theoretically only be linking to the older posts. But nothing is working. Help!!!

    Greetings Wix Team, 

    I only see a way to have the button appear on all pages: (show on all pages).

    My question; I want a audio button to be visible on only a few pages, not on all of the pages, is this possible? 

    Thanks.

      Hi hmcguae,

       

      Thank you for contacting Wix support.

       

      Yes, if you want you Audio Play Button to only appear on certain pages, click on the Audio Play Button > unselect the little check box on the bottom Show on all pages.

       

      Let me know if you have any further questions.

    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.

      Hi,

       

      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.

      Hey,

       

      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?

    • Ron Wix Team

      Replied by Ron June 17, 2014

      Hi,

       

      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.

       

      Let us knwo should you require further assistance.

    Hi

    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.

    Thanks

      Hello,

       

      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.

       

      Let us know if you need help with anything else.
