    Is it possible to make changes to the actual background that is part of the template?  My web site looks great on most pages but where a page has a lot of text one part of the background image is too strong, too dark and that makes it difficult to read the text until you scroll it up to a lighter part of the background.  Is there a means to fade or lighten that background image?  Alternatively can I change the template choice (merely to get a different background)  without altering the other elements I've already completed and have the way I want them?   Or can I upload a new background without having an effect on everything else already done. If you look at the Supporters page on my site you will see why I want to change it.   Thanks!

      The great thing about our templates is that you can customize any template so completely that it can end up being any kind of website! For example, you can choose a template from the "Design" category and create a website for Accounting Services! To edit a template from the "Templates" page, simply roll over the template > click Edit > edit the template. 
      Please note: The Explore page shows templates that where made by Wix customers and are not editable. 

      It is not possible to change one Wix template with another one within a created site. It is also not possible to combine two different Wix templates in one site- you are able to edit only one at a time. If you wish to choose a different template, simply create a new site.

      After creating the new site you can easily move your premium status to it! Simply enter your "manage premium" system via "My Account".

      Please note that you will have to attach your domain to your updated site. You can do it via the Domain Manager when clicking on "Manage Premium".

      You can find more information here .
      You can find a video tutorial about "Manage Premium" here .

      I am sorry, but I don't understate you,

      I have News app, and I need the title align right.

      I didn't find in settings this option.

      Thank you for help.

      Hey Stanislav!


      I'm really sorry but News App doesn't have a possibility to align title to the right. You can use our List Builder app which has more designing options and will allow you to create news list as well.

     put color, quantity, size, menu, message etc. buttons in the editor/add/online store elements section for individual use instead of solely in the product gallery, which I and many others opted not to use because of how limited it's options and gallery layouts are.  I'd love to go and add a "quantity" button to my page, or a "color" button...  we should have the option to configure it by selecting the product just as we would if we are using the add to cart button/select product..

    can you imagine?!

     I don't see how the providing a new eCommerce image zoom benefits pages that are already opened to the maximum screen availability -  but do see the benefit if the options were openly available to pages like I mentioned..

    Where would I look for how to put the following in my Wix website?

    1. www.mtgox.com has:

    Last:$920.19   High:$967.00   Low:$859.00   Vol:20180 BTC  W.Avg:$914.75

    across the top of the site, which refreshes each time a page is clicked, can I do the same, it grabbing information from an external site?


    2. http://markets.thegenesisblock.com/

    Similarly, how would I put something like this on my Wix site, again it would grab the information from an external site?


    Thanks so much!!

    Where any given template has a box for a given photo, that I can drop in...or copy/paste (or however I'm supposed to do it), am I able to place a short video clip, in any spot that's designed for a photo?  If so; how do I accomplish this?

    Problem with your Color Palette.

    I'm building a website for a Restaurant that has several large and detailed menus. I have found that once I changed the text and colors to any of your palette styles, that I could not remove the palette color combination at all. I could change it to another palette color design, but I could not change back to just the same single text color throughout the website. I had to chose from the different palette styles.  I tried to set all the palette colors to a single color and that did not work either. This is really frustrating to have to rebuild a website because of this. Please fix.

      Maybe it's a great idea to have the site history on the HTML 5 Platform where I might actually look for it.... Some parts of your platform are easy and great to use, other areas are nothing short of extremely frustrating
