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 publish my website but when I type the domain name (address) it says my domain is unused and free to buy. I bought it through GoDaddy and it is all ok there but my website just doesn`t appear. What do I need to do?

      Your pointing configuration in your registrar (not Wix, but your actual domain host) is incorrect. If your registrar is Godaddy click here, otherwise here

      Best, Ritti

    When I edit & publish my site www.reposriberac.com the whole of the main body text is not showing even though it shows perfectly well on the back end.  What previously were grey pages with text are now showing as empty white spaces.  Only my heading banner, menu and slideshow next to the menu show.  I have cleared all my cookies/cache.  I have logged in and out, rebooted the Mac but nothing changes i.e. no text showing at the front end.  Any ideas
