    My client has asked me to create a logout button on my eShop page for members and customers who want peace of mind knowing that if they hit the logout button they are securely looged out of the eShop webpage that they had to sign in to initially. Is this possible? In other words, can I reverse the login process for the protection of my eShop page?

    I would like to link a button to a hidden page on my site. Is that possible? I don't want the site to be visible in the menu of the main site, but would like it to be accessible only via button on the main site (Home). 

    I've tried a lot of things alredy. It seems to be working if I link a button when the site is visible but not if I make the site hidden. 

    Would appretiate help.

      Hey tarjacroslo,


      You will need to find your hidden pages' URL in your sitemap. Once you have the URL, you'll need to use that to link your button. 


      Every Wix creation has an XML sitemap that assists in getting content recognized by search engines (and Google Analytics).

      The sitemap is dynamically generated within our server and , therefore, stays up to date with any pages that you add or remove from your site.
      To view your sitemap, add sitemap.xml to the end of your domain name. Example: mydomainname.com/sitemap.xml .
      Note: If you cannot see the Sitemap, please make sure that you have selected to 'Allow search engines to find my site' from within your site SEO settings


      If you have any other questions or require assistance, please let us know!

      Thank you,

      Eyal, Wix Customer Support Team

      thank you for assitance Eyal. I can see the sitemap but can't find the hidden page URL (I've attached the print screen). This is all that I can see. I checked the SEO settings and the search engines can search my site. 

      Thank you.

    Hi there

    I have setup the website "http://www.snapclick.co.nz".  

    The "Home" button wasn't link back to the home when you are in the "Package" page.  It works fine at the Gallery page or Contact us page.  

    Could you please have a look?

    Thank you

      This is happening because the box below it is covering the link. You will have to make the box a bit shorter so it won't cover the link.


      Please let us know should you have further questions.

      Best, Ritti

    I have a small problem with the text buttons. I have a text and within the text I put several text buttons that link to pages within my website. However when I open the website on another computer the buttons shift within the text. I´ve tried to use the magnet tool, but that hasn´t gotten me anywhere. 

    Does anyone know how to solve this?

    How do I link the phone number on my homepage?  When I go to the mobile version on my Android phone the phone number can't be clicked! Am i not doing something right?

    • Rapido Wix Team

      You are able to add the phone number in your Mobile Action Bar.

      The Mobile Action Bar is an add-on layer that appears when your site is accessed by a mobile device. For more information about activating the Mobile Action Bar, click here.

    There is no Document selection in the "link to" option. There is only URL, Page, Email, Media and Prev/Next options. Nothing about linking to a document. PLEASE HELP!

    Hi, i have made a hover button in Adobe Flash it works fine in preview mode it's changing, but when i link it to one of the pages it stops changing and reacts only like a simple image with a link without the hover action. Why is that happening?


    Best regards

      Unfortunately the two functionalities clash, you can either make it animate or link, not both.
