    picassa web album

    Can I use a picassa web album (embedded link) on the wix website as a slide show, rather than uploading each picture to the site?

      Thank you for the reply. I was not able to add the album as it does not have the proper link. Please see the description below of what I need to do to add the slideshow to the website. Please let me know how I can do this - copy to HTML code and paste in the source code of my site. Thank you.

      On the My Photos page, click your album.
      Click Link to this album on the right-hand side.
      Click Embed Slideshow.
      Choose your slideshow settings, such as image size, captions, and autoplay.
      Once you've chosen your settings, copy the resulting HTML code (Ctrl-C).
      Paste the HTML in the source code for your site (Ctrl-V).

      Hi nhartman510,

      Unfortunately it is not possible to add HTML code directly to the source code of your site.

      However, you can use our HTML App. With this App you can test and add your own HTML code to your Wix site.

      For more information you can click here.

    How do I add a link?

    How do I add a link? I have a picture that I am telling my visitors who took it, and want to link her website and her Facebook page to it. That way visitors can click on the link instead of copying it and finding the pages.

      It sounds like you have accidentally embedded the linked site to your page instead of linking to it.

      If you simply want an element that will link to your other site you can create a button and link it.

      Please follow these steps:

      1. Click your button.

      2. From the Button Settings window, under Link to, click the field.
      3. From the Link settings window that opens, click Web Address.
      4. From the window that opens, under Type in a new web address, type in the external website’s URL.
      5. Click the dial next to Open in new window or Open in same window.
      6. From the Link settings window, click OK.
      7. Click outside of the button to close the Button Settings window.

      Your button is linked to an external web address.


      For more information please click here.


      If this is not what you are trying to achieve, please elaborate so that we will be able to further help you.

      Hi there,
      Please take a look at the screenshot below:

      If you "HIDE" the subpages from Menu, they will not show as "Dropdown Menu".

      Then you can add an element such as Button, Clipart, Image or Text to have it linked to the page.
      To learn how to add a link to an element, please refer to the Best Reply of this thread, or see the screenshot below:

      Should yo require further assistance, please feel free to contact us anytime.

    I have created a welcome page with Picture and Logo, and also created 4 images which are my 4 categories below the main welcome image banner, I wish to link these 4 categories to a grid of relevant products but I am at a loss after trying everything I could possibly understand.

    Very frustrating especially as the rest was simple, I have made the pull down area work but not those 4 images underneath the large welcome banner, how can you help?
