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.

    I am having the same issue on IE.  I have cleared my cache, reloaded the editor, tried control +M, and moved the header and the page all the way to the back.  Nothing's working.  A screenshot is attached (the box that reads "welcome").  I want to keep the element, but can't access it.  On a related note, elements keep moving of place when clicked on, while their placeholders remain in place.  This is what seems to have happened here.  I clicked on it to edit, and it jumped into the corner.  In the past, I've been able to find the placeholders and retrieve them, but this one's just gone.

    In my WIX website for camargohuntertrials.com, there is an image that shows on every page that I can't get to in order to delete it. It is located in the lower left corner. Also a white button that say Tailgate Info (not the red one) that should not be there. Can you please get rid of it for me? thanks

    Deleting boxes

    I created a box on the home page of my wix website and it is added to all of the other pages. How do I remove it from the other pages.  I cannot seem to click on the box anymore to update or even make changes to it.  It is the box that talks about the mission

      I merged your message to the general thread concerning this issue. Please take a look at the best reply above.

      Once the box is selected, you can uncheck the box next to "Show on all pages" from the small pop-up panel.

      Hello Adriadne,

      The text appears on this page http://www.fifthstreetokc.org/#!womens-ministry/c2ta

      It is appearing on all the pages but it is hidden behind the page in the background on most pages. I have adjusted the layout so it can be seen on the about listed page.

      Please specify which text it is exactly on that page.


      Also, please note that your page is sent to the front and covering items that are located underneath it, which makes some items in your site unreachable and therefore you cannot edit them.


      In order to send it to the back, you need to click on it and click “send backwards” until it cannot be pressed anymore (it will turn into faded colors once it is sent all the way to the back).



      For more information, click here.


      After doing so, you’ll be able to reach all items and edit them as you please.

      Should you have any further questions, please let us know! Thanks, Customer Solutions

    I'm having a similar issue. I have a "shop now" button stuck below my footer on all of my pages that I can only see in preview mode. When the in the editor, the only page I'm able to view it on is the home page and that's after I send everything to the back, on all pages.... but I am unable to select the box still... just really want the "shop now" box deleted.
