Often, an element will be placed behind or in front of another element. Because of this, you might have difficulty selecting or deleting a specific element. You can solve this by bringing the element forward.


To bring an element forward: Click the element > from the pop-up menu, click the Bring forward icon. You will, then, be able to move, edit or delete the element.

Alternately, if you are unable to click the element to select it, click the element in front of it > click the Send backward icon to send that element behind the element that you are trying to access.

Note: For an element in your header, when unchecking the Show on all pages box, the element might move behind the header causing it to appear inaccessible. To access the element, move the header backwards as described above or use Ctrl + M to toggle through the elements on your page until the element is selected.

    Hi Wix,

    I cannot seems to move any element of my page once I added it on my page. I've reopen my browser a few times and open the editor again, but the problem is still there.  Please help!

      Hello  6xmasterphotograph,

      Thank you for contacting Wix support. I wasn't able to recreate the issue you are facing from my end.

      We recommend clearing your browser's cache as that sometimes solves issues. You can find step by step instructions here.

      Please note that clearing your browser's cache will not resolve all issues.

      We also recommend you to try and use different browsers and see if there is any difference.

      Wix supports all major browsers (including IE, Firefox, Google Chrome and Safari), and all of those browsers support the ability to export favorites and bookmarks to the newly installed browser.

      To download the latest Google Chrome browser please click here
      To download the latest Firefox browser please click here
      To download the latest Safari browser please click here

      Feel free to contact us should you require any further assistance.

    I keep getting responses to a query that I've never posted. The query I posted was ... " Why can't I delete an old 'ShoutOut" that I've posted?"

    I'm having the same issue. I've tried Ctrl-M, clearing all my cookies and cached info but I still can't delete the photo gallery. I've attached a picture of what I need deleted. Incase someone from Wix can go into my account it's on the site final-lvsp. Thank you, Bill

    I am trying to design a portfolio, and when I created a paragraph box under my "Video" tab, it embedded the "I'm a paragraph tab...notice on all pages of my site.  I can't seem to reattach to it, and I've tried sending multiple pages back to find it.  I need to have it removed from all of my tabs on the site.

    I can't delete the Social Forum App on the "BOD Comments" page of the Spirito! Singers website.  I can select it and edit the settings, but the delete is not working. Can you delete it for me?

      Thank you for contacting Wix support.


      To delete "Social Forum" you will need to remove the full page from your site: Click on the Pages icon on the left side > Click Settings and SEO > Click on Delete.


      If you have any further questions, please let us know.


      Kind regards,

    I'm having a similar problem.  I have a text field that I can't select, move, delete, send forward/backwards, etc.  It's also showing up on all my pages.  

    I have tried deleting the page, clearing the cache, and using Ctrl M.

    I have more than one site, but I'm referring to the School of Admission site.

    Here is an attachment showing the specific page and text I'm struggling with: soa text error.docx

      Hi richp2,


      There was a fault with the page that caused the issue.


      We have flagged the page as hidden and created a new page.  We removed the buttons for you, but please check the page now and edit it.


      Changes were saved in the editor only, so please publish after fixing the page.

    Dear Wix team,

    Can I please have help in deleting the circled element in the picture I've attached?

    It's a photo with a link to a .pdf file which somehow jumped up into the header and is unable to be seleced.

    I've tried sending things backwards and forwards and moving them around, tried "Ctrl+M" but it never cycles to this particular element, so I'm unable to delete it. Thanks in advance.
