Often, an element will be placed behind or in front of another element. Because of this, you might have difficulty selecting or deleting a specific element. You can solve this by bringing the element forward.


To bring an element forward: Click the element > from the pop-up menu, click the Bring forward icon. You will, then, be able to move, edit or delete the element.

Alternately, if you are unable to click the element to select it, click the element in front of it > click the Send backward icon to send that element behind the element that you are trying to access.

Note: For an element in your header, when unchecking the Show on all pages box, the element might move behind the header 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.

      We can see the map on your contact page, click on the map, when marked click the delete button on the keyboard. Worked for us just fine. Be sure to save this change.

      Please take a look at the screenshot taken from your live site below:

      As you can see, your site is up and running perfectly fine.
      Although the flower image still shows on your live site because Diamiso has removed this image on your Editor and only "Saved" the change, yet the change has not been "Published" yet.

      Please take a look at the screenshot taken from your Editor below:

      As you can see, the flower image is removed.
      Once you "Publish" this site, the image will not appear on the page. 

      AS for the site being BLANK, while browsing on the web, your computer and browser stores various information. This build up of information can sometimes cause conflict.
      Please clear your browser's cache. You can find step by step instructions here.


      Please note that clearing your browser's cache will not resolve all issues.

      We also recommend you to try and use different browsers and see if there is any difference.

      Wix supports all major browsers (including IE, Firefox, Google Chrome and Safari), and all of those browsers support the ability to export favorites and bookmarks to the newly installed browser.

      Hi there,
      SoundCloud was placed behind Gallery and Page.

    Removing a text box

    I added a text box to the main page.  I can't click on the box but I see the original text "I'm a paragraph...." It seems the box is behind another "box" but I've moved every picture/text box that I could and I still can't click on and delete this box.  I added another text box and it allowed me to add to text and move it around the page.  The functionality of the "text box" works, but I'm assuming my original box is "behind" something. What am I doing wrong?  Thanks!

    Unwanted white lines on all pages

    There are white horizontal lines going across most of my pages.  When i click them to try and delete them, I am not able to grab them. Instead, a "Page" menu appears.

    (I tried to upload a screenshot, but every time i tried to upload, the timer would just spin and spin ... the file is very small, too, so not sure what the issue is).

    Can you advise how to get rid of these? Thanks!

      Just tried all of the above suggestions. None of these worked. I suspect the lines I am seeing are page breaks? (when i click them, "Page" pops up).  I tried selecting them and "send to back" -- but nothing happened.  It wont make a difference if i select an object in front of it and bring it forward. The photos on the pages are already in front of the lines -- but i dont want the lines showing at all (and right now they go all the way across the page)

      I really dont want to have to start from scratch just to get rid of these..... Thanks!

      The problem is with the image you uploaded as a background:


      You should crop the white stripe on the upper part of the image.


      Please tell us how it went and whether you need further assistance.

    I just want to remove the Read More button; tried the bring forward/move back - nothing happed. I'd also like to remove the date from a photo, I just don't need or want it, but there doesn't seem to be an option for that. The edit date doesn't offer a way to DELETE it.

      Unfortunately, you cannot remove the Read more button from your blog as this it what your reader will click on in order to read the entire post. What you can do if you insist on removing it is to click on the button while in the editor > click button style in the small window that pops up > make the background color of your button transparent.


      Regarding the dates and images, you will need to remove the Alt text as shown in the screenshot below. Let us know should you require further assistance.
