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 can't remove a text box that appears on every page I have worked on. Any suggestions? The site is not yet published as I am working on it. I cleared my cache in IE.

      Please go to the Staff page on your editor, then press F12 > Click the console > enter the code below > press Enter.

      var fixNonSelectableComponents = function() {

      var inlineContent = pageGroup._skinParts.inlineContent;
      var inlineContentChildren = inlineContent.getChildren();
      var nonSelectableComp = _.find(inlineContentChildren, function(compView) {
      return (compView.$logic && !compView.$logic.isInstanceOfClass("core.components.Page"));
      var fakeEvent = {page: {x: 0, y:0}};
      W.Commands.executeCommand('EditCommands.moveCurrentComponentToOtherScope', {event:fakeEvent});

    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

      We have visited the website but could not see an image appearing on all pages (except the one on top which did make sense). Also, the red tail gate button appeared on only one page and we could click it easily so it can be removed.


      Have you managed to sort out both these matters yourself?

    Deleting boxes

      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.

    I have 2 buttons on my Home page I am trying to get rid of
