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.

      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.

    My text in the header will not delete or remove or anything. Can you please check for me? I am trying to delete this.  It's the copy saying " Search for a Property" in the top right corner. My domain is http://www.pbandjelly.me/

    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.

    My product logo (Power Pumper) is above the header bar when in edit mode but appears behind the header bar when I preview the site. How do I fix this?

    • HIRO Wix Team

      Replied by HIRO February 27, 2014

      You are currently setting your Header to "Fixed Position", 
      therefore, Header shows at the fixed place of a page all the time.

      Please uncheck the box next to "Fixed Position",
      that should solve your issue.

      Thank you.

      Well I found a work around by deleting the old logo and adding a new image. Why did this happen so that I may avoid it in the future?

      Glad to hear you were able to resolve it. I am not sure why exactly it happened, and it would be hard to check since I can no longer look into it now that you have fixed it, but I assume it was a layering issue. Feel free to contact us again if anything else comes up.

      Please click on the item you wish to add to the footer -> from the from down menu, please check the box: ' Show on all pages ' .

      I checked your site and I saw you have managed to add elements to the footer.

      Are you experience difficulties to a specific item?
