To go back to the Editor: From the left of the preview window, click Back to Editor.

      Please note, I have checked your account and noticed that you have several sites. Please provide us with the name of the site you are referring to in order for us to assist you.


      In addition, it will be very helpful if you'll provide us with a screenshot of the preview mode. For instructions on how to take a screenshot, please use this link.

      Thanks and I await your reply.

    Hello, I got my website all built up, but when I preview it or when I go directly to the site address, all I get is the heading of the site, nothing more. It's bee like for one day.

    I cannot access the Wix editor or my site.

    What can be the problem.

    I use Maxthon and have had no trouble so far and the site is working up until tonight.

      We visited your live site and it looks fine with no any loading problems.

      Please clear your browser cache (instructions for Maxthon here) or use another browser and check if the issue persists.

    Slide show

    I uploaded 3 pics to the image gallery for the slide show on my home page.  I am unable to view any of the pics or trigger the slide show to begin.  How do I do this prior to publishing the site?

      Hi 1ggott,


      To view the slideshow as you would on your live site, you will need to view your site in Preview mode. I have merged your post to the thread on this topic, please see the Best Reply above for more information.


      I viewed your site in Preview mode and the slideshow looks great so far! If you need any further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us again.

    I can change pages in my preview, but everytime I do change pages through the menu the new page jumps halfway down and I have to scroll up.

    How can I stop this happening?

      Hi !


      I just checked your site but wasn't able to recreate the issue.


      Can you please specify on what pages do you encounter the problem? 


      Have you also tried to clear cache and cookies and edit your pages again?

      Best regards, WIX Team.

    The header menu is not displaying properly when trying to preview my edited site. It seems to work fine if I go through the editor. The preview is not working when I am trying to access the preview link from the manage my site, site actions, preview website link. 

    What is the difference between the two previewers? Seems like a previewer bug not a cache issue. I get the same behavior on mac, windows, chrome, firefox, IE..etc.

      I've viewed your site on both modes (preview in the editor, and preview from the account page - which are basically the same).

      They both worked perfectly on my end:

      Sorry I was not specific enough in my description. Hover over wedding. The options are not the expected color and I cannot select the sub pages.  See screenshot.

      I followed your last instructions and the menu and subpages works perfectly from my end.

      For example: 


      Please keep in mind: your live site will perform as the preview within the editor.

      You can also publish your site to see how your live site appears.

      If you don't want your site to be visible to search engines, you can unpublish it by going to Settings > SEO (Google) > click the toggle "Allow search engines to find my site" -> click "Done". Please make sure the toggle is red.

      Once you have clicked the toggle be sure to hit Save!


      This means, you can publish your site and uncheck the box: to allow search engines to crawl your site, you will be the only one who sees your live site unless you choose to provide the link to others.
