In order for any changes to your Wix site to appear live, you will need to publish your site.

 

To publish your site: From the top of the Editor, click Publish > review your SEO and Mobile View options > click Publish.

After a few seconds, the confirmation box will appear > click OK.

 

Note: Saving changes will not make them appear live. Every time that you save your site, you will need to click Publish to make the saved changes appear live.

    hi,

    After selecting publish and getting the confirmation I go to the link where my website is but it is not showing the same as the preview.

    The preview pictures and words fit properly but when i go to the published site,the words and pictures are enlarged and does not fit in their frames properly thus making it very messy

    Is it possible to add 'publish one page at a time' function to the wix builder, that way we can work on many pages but publish only the one's that are ready to go live?

      Hi,

      Unfortunately not. When one publishes the site, all of the website will be published.

      Best, Ritti

      Hi,

       

      This is a great feature idea, unfortunately there is no direct feature available that allows only one page to appear.

      However, A work around is to hide all your other pages, please see How do I hide a page from the menu of my Wix site?

       

      Also please see How do I hide pages on my Wix site from Google search results?

       

      We document and learn from every feature request and bug brought to our attention. These objectives are immediately high priority milestones in Wix's product road map.

      ah, in this instance, you would create duplicate pages to edit, and before publishing, you'd hide the duplicates.

       

      Thanks guys

      If you would like to use your own domain with your Wix site, note that this is a premium feature and requires to upgrade your Wix site first with one of our premium plans. For information about our plans, click here.

       

      Once your site is upgraded, to use your own domain with your site there are two options:

       

      1. Transferring the domain to Wix

       

      Please note that this feature has not yet been released to all users.

       

      Currently it is possible to transfer only domains with the following extensions: .com, .org, .net, .biz. and .info.You can transfer your domain from another registrar to your Wix account.
