    I want to add a graphic element .png image with transparent background to selected pages (in the header) of my site.  Element shows up beautifully right until I click the "show on all pages" box.  Once I click that, it disappears.  I've tried different images, etc., and every time I de-select the show on all pages box each image disappears...even the stock images provided by Wix when you add a image.  Any thoughts will be most appreciated.

      Hey,


      I am sorry you are experiencing difficulties. 
       

      This might be happening because the element is sitting behind other elements. To access the element, click the element, then click the Bring forward icon from the pop-up until the element is on top of all of the other elements. You should then be able to move, edit or delete the element.

      Alternately, if you cannot click the element, click on the element that is on top of the element you are trying to access and click the  Send backward icon to send that element behind the element that you are trying to access.



       

      Note that if you have an element in your header and uncheck "Show on all pages", the element might be moved behind the element 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.
       

      Please let us know should you require any further assistance.
       

      ​Thanks,

      Hi,

       

      Yes! You can add header codes to the <head> section of your site for verification or authorship approval. Header code supported services include Google Webmaster toolsBing Webmaster ToolsTwitter CardsPinterest VerificationAlexa site owner claim, and more!

       

      To add header codes to your site from the editor, click 'Settings' > 'SEO (Google)' > 'Advanced SEO Settings', paste the code, and click 'Apply'. 

       

      The code should follow this format:

      <meta name='google-site-verification' content='XXXX' />

       

      Do not add the following:

      - Free text
      - Title, Description or Keywords Meta Tags 
      -
       Google Analytics Code
      - Scripts (<script>)
      - Robots (<meta name="robots" ... >)

       

      *Make sure to publish your site and complete the verification process with the third party service.*

    Hello,

    I am experiencing a problem with a large space appearing between my header and the body of the page. This occurs on all pages. Can you help me get the body of the page moved back up under the header, please?

    My site is: http://juliesong1.wix.com/heartskillsfpgs

    Thanks so much!

      All that you have to do is click in your website on the 'pages section'. That is the middle section of the site, between the header and footer. Once it is clicked and marked a box will open on the left titled 'Pages'. On the bottom of it it has X and Y coordinations, change the Y to a lower value, it will remove the gap.

      Dear Donna,

      Unfortunately, it is not possible to place images as a header background.

      If you place an image the menu navigation bar will disappear.

      Hello,

       

      Please note that content in your site's Header and Footer appear on all pages, therefore this option must be enabled.

       

      You cannot add items without that option to your site's Header or Footer since they both display the same content in all pages of the site.

       

      Let us know if you need any additional help - we'll be happy to further assist!

    For  reasons  I just DON'T understand... I CANNOT create  a  logo, title or  anything else  in the  header

    The  header  doesn't seem to exist. This  is  just totally stupid!!  I am just not going to bother  with a  header  logo on any of  my pages!

      Hi 62pictor,

      I checked your Editor and was able to locate your Header without experiencing any issues (see screenshot below).

      If you're not able to find your Header, simply click on any element on your page and use CTRL+M to toggle between elements until you get to your Header. 

       

      If you have any further questions please let us know.

      Thanks,
