To add elements to the header, drag and drop the element onto the header. The Show on all pages box will be checked automatically.

To add elements to the footer, click and drag the element to the bottom of the page, click the blue Move to Footer button that appears. The element will appear in the footer of all pages.

Check out our interactive site about header, page and footer (simply click on the image below):

      Hi sharontaylor263,


      In order to place your menu in the footer, you will need to make sure that the "Show on all pages" check box is checked in the element's settings. Once this has been checked, you'll be able to drag the menu to the footer.


      For more information, please see the Best Reply above. If you need any further assistance, please let us know.

    I have tried to write the name of my web site and I just cannot do it. I've watched the videos and it's not helping. The other problem is that now I lost the bar for about us, contact and blog. Cannot do it right. I've really spent more hours than I can tell you.

      Hi Esther,


      Sorry to hear you're experiencing difficulties. When you say you try to write the name of your site, do you mean you're trying to access your live site online?

      I'm asking this because I can see you haven't published any of your saved sites, and therefor they are not live until you publish them.


      Simply click on "Publish" (on the right side of the upper menu in your editor).
      You can follow the instructions here.


      Note: In order for the changes that you made in your editor to be published to your live website, you must click publish from the editor every time after you've saved your changes.


      If I've misunderstood you I apologize in advance, in that case please try to describe to us what it is exactly your'e trying to achieve.

      Many thanks.

      - Daniel M, Wix team.

      If you look at the site, you can see where it says it, and I can't touch it at all, even after using CTRL+M, it skipped completely over it.

      1) The component needs to be set to show on all pages.


      Please check out the video below for instructions:


      2) External links can be linked to using buttons.


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

    I added my logo to the header, dragged the image there and it was highlighted-attach to header. When I publish and look at my page, the logo moves down the page when I scroll down like it's not attached to the header.  What can I do about this? I also have checked show on all pages.

      Please note that currently your Header is set to a fixed position, which means that all the elements that are placed in your Header and set to show on all pages will stay fixed at the top of the page while scrolling up and down your site.


      If you don't want to use this feature, simply click the Header and uncheck the box next to Fixed Position.

    I can only move my header down and not up. During the editing process of my spring site, the header shifted down and I can't move it back up. My other sites seem to have the same problem of not being able to move the header up.

      I checked your site and I saw there is a text box placed on the right side of the header.

      In order to resize the header, you will need to remove this box.

      Thank you,

    I want to add elements to footer that don't appear on all pages. I have this option for header but no such for footer. I'm trying to create multilanguage (since when its incorrect word!?) web site and as you might know, it's impossible with "show on all pages" option checked. It is very inconvenient!  Please help me, because it would look really bad design if on all pages (different languages) web site will show contact info in English only.

    I want to delete an app box I managed to upload as i wanted to add a countdown timer thru a html link - but now i cant either edit the box to put the information in it OR delete it - which is what Id prefer to actually do please.

    Also, even after i publish the site it still prompts me to "do you want to leave this page" when im closing the browser - is that supposed to happen.

    Much Appreciated!

    Wondering if you could help? I have a image in my header and I want my call to action to on top of that image. Is this possible?



    • Jo Wix Team

      Replied by Jo March 5, 2014

      Hi niallsinclair, 

      You can put any element in the header, and above the image. However, this will require you to make sure that the element you would like to add to the header is set to show on all pages. To do so, click on the element > click on Settings from the pop up menu > check the box next to 'Show on all pages'.



      I am unsure if you would like to place  the element above the image or on the image itself. If you'd like to place the element above the image, you will need to drag the footer down with the stretch handle first.
      If you would like to simply place the element above the image, just drag it into the header. 

      If you need further instruction, please let us know exactly which element you are referring to so that we can assist you further.
