If you have already published your site, but you are not yet ready to share it with the world, add a "Site Under Construction" or "Coming Soon" notice to your home page. Make sure that you do not add any buttons or menus to this page.

 

When visitors enter your site, they will be sent directly to this page. As you will not have added any buttons or menus to this page, they will be unable to navigate to any other pages on your site.

      Hello,

       

      To change the default home page: From the left side of your Editor, click the Pages icon >  decide which page you want to use as your home page and click the Settings wheel next to that page > under Settings and SEO, check the box next toSet as homepage.

       

      Be sure to save and publish.


       

      I  hope this helps! Please let us know if the error continues.

      Hi Anne,

       

      Thank you for contacting Wix!

       

      If the elements in your Header and Footer are set to "Show on all pages" mode, please uncheck this option so you will be able to decide on which pages would you like that these elements will appear. 

       

      Hope this helps. If you have any other questions, we will be happy to help.

      Thanks, Rony

      Hi Anne,

      Yes, If you uncheck the "Show on all pages" box on an element it will no longer show on all pages.

      What you can do is create a box/element/image that will block your menu bar on the specific page you're designing so that your users will not be able to see or select the menu bar.

       

      Hope this helps,

    "Under Contruction" homepage

    Hello. Im about a month away from launching the site that Ive been working on. I don't like our old site very much so I would like to create a page that says "under construction" or "new site coming soon". Is it possible to make a home page for this with out the header and footer that's on all the other pages, so I can continue to work on the site but no one can click around the pages from the "under construction" page? Thank you.

    Hi smounche,

     

    Simply follow these 2 steps:
     

    1. Add a "Site Under Construction" or "Coming Soon" notice to your home page (you can add a simple text box with a "Site under Constructions" text - delete everything else from your homepage. If you want to save the info on your home page, create a new page and set it as your home page.
     

    2. Make sure that your new homepage doesn't contain any buttons or menus. When visitors enter your site, they will be sent directly to this page. As you will not have added any buttons or menus to this page, they will be unable to navigate to any other pages on your site.

    Thanks, Nicole,

    Can I publish a "coming soon" message?

    Hi there

    I have a premium account and I'm currently working on my site. I'm not ready to publish it yet but my business logo has my website address in it so I would like to publish some kind of "coming soon" page, but without publishing everything just yet.

    Can you please instruct me in how to do this? 

    Thank you so much.

    Cheers, Sofia.

      Hey  yoav913,

       

      You can try creating a landing page by using this workaround:

       

      1. Add a new page to your site (from the "Pages" icon button on the left tool bar -> "Add Page")
      2. Drag this page up so it is above all other pages.
       
      This page will now be your new landing page- so all you have left to do is to design it as you wish.
       
      Please Note: The landing page is ready but objects may still show on it if they are set to appear on all pages, you can replace objects set to "show on all pages" by copying and pasting them on every page except the pages you wish them not to appear on.

    Under construction

    I have already started to design my site but I want to upload and publish a coming soon or under construction page without compromising the work I have already started on.

    Is this possible?
