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.

    I have published my site https://elwindorchestra.wix.com/elwo but the homepage does not appear the same as in the editor. I have an events list on the left of the homepage which doesn't show up on the published sit. every other part of the site is fine and the events list does show on the mobile site. The weird thing is that when I first visited the site after publishing it was perfect. This problem only occurred a few days later. I have tried saving and publishing the site again but no improvement.

    Please help.

    not updating

    I'm updating my site but when others look the update does not show.  And yes it has been longer than 72 hours.  And yes I've tried from other computers (in fact many people have tried from many computers).  So the update is showing on my version but not for anyone else

      Hi,

      I wasn't able to see any dissimilarities between your editor and the live site. Is there anything specific you are referring to?

    Before, when I earlier used wix (years ago) I used to make a homepage here, then take the HTML adress of the page and I could publish it in other places. like f.ex imvu profiles. Is this still possible?! :-)

      Hi,

      Unfortunately, this option is no longer available.

      We do not support embedding or redirecting Wix site to external host, as we host all Wix creations only on our servers.

      Hi,

      I can see that you currently do not have a premium package. Which means that your site is free.

      Should you want to connect a domain and/or want to get rid of the ads you will have to upgrade your site to premium.

       

      You can find all the information regarding the premium plans here.

      In order to upgrade your site , please go to My Sites -> click Upgrade next to the site you would like to upgrade.
       

      For the Wix Premium Learning Center, click here.


      Check out our current promotion:

    Changes show in editor but are not being published.

    It seems to only be with the menu buttons I am trying to change the font on the menu buttons to "juno" and though the changes show in editor they don't show up on the website after I publish them.

      Hi,

      I could see that both of the sites look identical.

      Please make sure to publish the editor after you have made changes.

    I purchased my domain off of go daddy do I have to wait 60 days before my site is up?  I don't want to use the wix domain that they first gave me because it only says my kennel name at the end.  Please help me and let me know what the deal is.  I have linked my domain with wix and I received an email stating that they were linked.  Thanks Jenni

      Hi,

      I can see that you are connected via DNS. Your site is up and running:

      The 60 days refer to a transfer to a different domain host.

       

      An answer to this topic can be found in Can I transfer my existing domain to Wix so Wix is my domain host?

    Hi there,

    I understand that it may take 72 hrs for my site to go live once first published and I cannot change my domain to wix as it has not been 60 days since purchasing my domain.  If I make changes to my site and re-publish, will that also take up to 72hrs or will it be instant once it has first been published?  Also, is there anything else I have to do to have the site go live if my domain was purchased elsewhere?

    Thanks,

    Nick

      Hello Nick,

       

      I hope I understood your question correctly: 

      - You should allow 72 hours to pass to have your domain informfitnessbrisbane.com connected to Wix.

      Once done, please link it to your Wix site by going to Domains > manage > change > selecting your Wix site.

       

      - Your site inform-fitness is currently linked to this domain, hence unavailable online. If you want it to be available in the mean time, please remove its linkage to your domain from the location I mentioned earlier, then it would be available under the URL informfitness.wix.com/inform-fitness.

       

      - The changes you save and publish are immediately displayed in your live site. No need to wait the 72 hours.

       

      Please let us know in case you need further help.

      All the best, Or

      So I can't use the website name www.informfitnessbrisbane.com until the 60 days is up and transferred across, I can only use informfitness.wix.com/inform-fitness? But after 60 days I can use www.informfitnessbrisbane.com.  Is that right?

      If people type in www.informfitnessbrisbane.com can I not get it to redirect to informfitness.wix.com/inform-fitness?  Otherwise it's going to be pretty useless to me...

      Hey, 

       

      Please note that you won't be able to transfer your domain until the 60 days have passed, however you will be able to connect your domain to your Wix site in the mean time! Please read below the difference between transferring and connecting your domain and instructions.


      Transferring your domain to Wix means that your domain will be moved from the domain host that you purchased the domain from, to Wix. Your domain will no longer be managed by the domain host, rather:

      - Wix will become the domain host, which means that domain renewal will be done from your Wix account, and not from your previous domain host.
      - You will be able to manage your DNS records from your Wix account. This includes connecting your e-mail, pointing your domain to a different IP address, connecting subdomains, etc.
       
      Please note: You can currently transfer only domains with the following extensions: .com, .org, .net, .biz. and .info.

      For more information on transferring a domain to Wix, please click here.
       

      Connecting your domain to Wix means that your domain remains with the domain host that you purchased the domain from, but is connected to your Wix site, either via name servers or pointing. In this case:

      - Your domain remains hosted by the domain host, and therefore domain renewals, contact information updates and billing inquiries must be done through your current domain host and not through Wix. 
      - If your domain is connected via name servers, you will be able to manage your DNS records from your Wix account.
      - If your domain is connected via pointing, your DNS records are managed via your domain host.

      For more information about connecting your domain to Wix, click here.

      Please note that this process may take up to 72 hours to take effect.

       

      If you have any other questions, please let us know!

      Thank you,
