    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?

      Hello,

       

      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.

       

      Let us know if you need further assistance.

    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.

      Hey!

      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.

      Hi jonathanbromage4,

       

      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.

      All the best, Ellie

    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.

    The template I am using has a main menu with 4 buttons.  I want to add one button (make it 5) to THAT menu.  No way to do that is obvious. WIX assumes a fixed number of buttons.  I should at will be able to add a button for any page anytime I want.  What do I do?

    • CarleyS Wix Team

      Replied by CarleyS May 1, 2014

      Hi malofsky,

       

      Adding a page to your site (as a main page, not a sub-page), will automatically add another button to your menu.

       

      If your menu shows the "More" button instead of the new page button, it is because your menu doesn't have enough space. You can simply make the menu wider and the page button will be displayed.

       

      If you need any further assistance, please let us know.

      - Regards, Carley

      Hi Adam,

       

      I thought that this might be the reason you couldn't find the button, that's why I mentioned it as well :)

       

      Glad you figured it out now.

    Hi, I have a multilingual page and have followed your instructions on multilingual buttons. But when I set my buttons in English in my English page, they also appear in my Spanish page. I´ve marked the Show on All Pages in all buttons. The other way around, buttons in Spanish, they appear in Spanish in the English version. So, what I want is:

    - Buttons in English linked to my English pages

    - Buttons in Spanish linked to my Spanish pages

    Page is saved but not published.

    Thanks

      Hey  mikelmugalari,

       

      It is not possible to set the button to appear on some of your pages by using the 'Show on all pages' feature. You will have to copy and paste the buttons to the Spanish pages and the other buttons to your English pages. 

       

      Thanks,

    • Itamar Wix Team

      Replied by Itamar April 29, 2014

      Exactly. You need to copy the English buttons and paste them in every English page, and do the same for the Spanish buttons and pages.

      Hey violamoosic,

       

      As Ilia noted in his reply, this is not possible yet, though we can provide you with a workaround that might fit your needs. 

       

      You can share your Dropbox content directly on your Wix site with the Dropbox Folder app from the Wix App Market. For more information, click here.

       

      If there is anything else we can do for you, please let us know!

      Thank you,
