      Hi Liran,

      Please note that you can preview your site by going into Preview Mode. In Preview Mode, you can browse through your site as if it is online. 
      To go into the Preview Mode of your site, click Preview from the top of the Editor. 
      To go back to your Editor, click Back to Editor from the top left of Preview Mode.

      You can go into your Editor and preview your site at any time, including after your site is published!

      You can find more information here.

      There are two forms of alignment in the HTML Editor:

      1) The vertical gridlines, which define the boundaries of the site. 


      Gridlines appear inside your editor to help you build your site's layout. Currently your site is fixed at 980px in order to accommodate the largest number of internet users that will be visiting your site. You will want to place all of your site's content inside the Gridlines to ensure its compatibility across different browsers and devices. 


      Checkout the video below to learn more about our Gridlines feature that will help you with your site's layout. 

      The gridlines do not appear on your live site - they are there as a guide that can help you map and design your site better.To remove the gridlines, simply click on the gridlines icon from the top menu.


      2. To align your items, select the CTRL key on your keyboard -> then select the items you wish to align -> On the left side of the editor, choose the type of alignment you like from the Elements Settings.

      I hope this helps! Please let us know if we could assist you further.

      Well I don't understand cause it WAS in your roadmap for this summer! You said you would do it during the summer as well as making it much easier to change fonts in the template!! So, did you lie?

      I am sorry but I am afraid this is still not possible at the moment. We always listen and document user requests and we try adding them to our platform as soon as we can. Unfortunately, we can not guarantee when a specific feature will be released and sometimes certain feature take more time to be developed. The development process is dynamic and the priority for certain features may change.


      Please keep in mind that you can always create a new site with the template you want and add your content there. You can also manually add components you see on a specific template to your site to achieve the same effect. If there is something specific you want to add to your site and don't know how, feel free to let us know and we will gladly assist you in adding it.

    I was wondering is it possible to make a banner fit full screen and be responsive, appearing the same size (full width) on any screen like a wordpress theme?

      Hey garrettjones123, 


      At the moment, Wix sites are not yet able to determine the site's viewing mode, so it is impossible to make your site fit to screen.

      Currently, the width of your site is fixed at 980px. This size was chosen in order to accommodate the largest number of internet users that will be visiting your site. This is common for the new generation of sites, as it ensures compatibility with the many different smart devices being used today (e.g. iPad users) where you only scroll up or down.

      You can design your site outside of the 980px borders, however, we recommend that anything that you add outside of these borders be mainly decorative and not vital content to your visitors' browsing experience.

    I started with a blank template so I could add my own image background.  I want my image on the far left only and to scroll with the page.  This works fine.  The problem is I am unable to size it so that the width is not as large.  Can this be done from within Wix?  Please advise.  Thanks!

      You need to reload the background after it looks the way you want it.
