    I have the same problem with the footer and extra space under the copyright sign and webmaster login. I adjusted my homepage photo and it got all messed up and now I cannot fix it back to its previous state since I never marked it as fixed positioned footer and I tried everything with the ctrl + M but no hidden elements were found. The gridline right above the footer is not adjustable so I have all this extra space under the actual footer I cannot remove. Please help me fix my footer and remove the extra space because I need to publish my website soon. I have tried everything... I am willing to give you my username and password so it can be fixed quick. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      Hi sineokatabg,


      I have checked your site and unfortunately, there is no way to get rid of the extra space on your home page as it is the size of the template used.


      Notice that the space is minimal on the gallery page of your site.

      I would suggest that you add or make the current content on the "pages" section larger.


      Please let us know if you have any further questions we may assist you with.

      All the best, Ellie

    HI the Footer on my page will not display. my page design does not use the footers functions however I but i was using it as a set point for vertical scrolling. since I cannot  adjust the size, so there is a large lower section of blank unused space when the page is scrolled vertically     ..If I click in the lower blank section of the footer it will not display its menu it will only select image elements on the page

      Hi Wix... I think I was able to semi fix the problem, the footer would only show up if I cycle through using control M ....once I found the footer I set it in position and set it as fixed position hopefully that keeps the page from scrolling into no mans land

      Because your footer is very small it was very hard to locate.

      I can see you have a lot of empty space at the bottom of each of your pages, You can pull your footer upwards and the empty space will disappear and the footer will adjust itself to the page length.


      Please feel free to contact us should you have any further questions.

    I'm having serious issues on editing my website in HTML Wix editor. There is a huge gap between my footer and body. Every time I drag the footer up on one page, it ruins the layout of the other pages. I;ve never had this issue before. No matter what I do, I cannot drag the footer up. I need to launch the website very promptly. Can I talk to someone on the phone or chat? 

    Thank you,

      Hi Inga,


      Thank you for contacting the Wix support team.


      The excess space or gap between your footer and page content might be caused by a hidden element.

      To access this element: In the Wix Editor, select any element on your site and hold down the "Ctrl" key and press "M" to toggle through the elements on your page until the element is selected. Once you have selected this element, you can either delete it or move it upward.

      Only once the element has been moved or deleted, can the footer can be adjusted to remove the gap.

      Please let us know should you require further assistance


      Many thanks, Barrios

      Hi Barrios,


      Thank you for replying. I tried Ctrl + M on all my pages and still do not see any hidden elements to remove. I also noticed that as I tried to drag some of the elements in the body down, at a certain point, I get a dotted line that moves everything below it down with it (including the footer). Is it possible for someone from Wix to log into my site and try to help me correct this gap?

      I can't seem to figure it out on my own and am extremely eager to publish the site today.

      Thank you so much for your help,

      Hi Inga,

      Are you referring to a specific page in your site?

      I checked your pages but I couldn't locate a big gap between your footer and pages.

      I've mostly fixed the issue. The text box containing the address and other information was over-sized. Please note that the content is not placed in the actual footer, which is just below the content that should be a part of he footer. Please place it inside the footer and the extra space should be gone completely (currently occupied by a blank footer).


      Please review the changes I've made in the editor and follow my instructions above and you should be set.


      Let us know if you need further assistance.

    My footer is stuck.

    Hi, Wix

    My footer is stuck, and footer notes also disappeared from the footer.


    I cannot change the height of the footer either.

    Please fix this issue.

      You cannot drag your footer up because you have a box above it that is blocking it.

      Once you move the box up, you will be able to move the footer up.

      Best, Ritti

      Thanks for your reply.  It was not the box above.  But, it was the footer note that were left down below.  It should never be separated from the footer.  Could you list this point as an action point for Wix to fix?

    I can not make the footer thinner. I do not know what is the problem.

    Also, if I want to save the a message appears, that says: A problem in your site structure prevented us from saving your site. The good news is that it's already been fixed automatically! Please click the save button and review your site's header and footer for any possible unexpected changes.


    If I click the save button, the same message comes up. I do not know what happened. Until now, there was nothing wrong with the site editor mechanism. :) 


    What can I do?


    Please, help me out!

    Thanks Jeannot

      I've visited your site's editor and looked at the footer. In order to re-size your footer, you first need to recognize some of the elements in the footer ( make the image smaller or arrange the text box. Once you'll have an empty space in the bottom of the footer you can use the stretch handle to re-size the footer.

      I've added a print screen of your site, the orange lines are the margins of your footer, at the top of your footer you can see that you have some empty space, if you move all the element in the footer a bit higher you will be able to re-size the footer

      Please feel free to contact us with any matter,

      I can see that you have a menu and copyright text box dragging down the length of your footer, if you drag these up it will make the footer smaller.


      Best regards

    How do you add an image to below the footer

    • Ella Wix Team

      Replied by Ella June 4, 2014


      To add an element to the footer, select it, then check the "Show on all pages" box at the bottom of its settings. Then drag the elements into the footer.
