    Thanks Dean from Wix Team for your prompt reply to my question regarding the Pin It but and sub-category "Social". Since my website was created using FlashPlayer and HTML is needed in order to add the Pin It button, does that mean I have to create another website using HTML?  Thanks.

      Hello,

       

      Yes, you cannot convert Flash sites to HTML, that is to say, you will need to create your new HTML site.

      Please follow Dean's instructions to initiate the process and enjoy the many more features of the HTML world.

       

      Please let us know in case you need further help.

      All the best, Or

    I received a notice from Wix today that the Pin It button is now available. The instructions for adding the button:  select the "Add" button,then choose the sub-category: Social.  I do not have a sub-category: "Social". Without a "Social" sub-category it's impossible to add a Pin It button to my website. I have the Premium pkg....why don't I have a "Social" sub-category? Thanks.

      Hi,

       

      I apologize for the inconvenience this has caused you,

       

      The Pin It button is available for the HTML5 Editor, looking into your account I can see your site was built using the Flash editor.


      You can create your HTML site now by clicking 'Templates' and choosing an HTML template. For more information on how to get started, click here.

       

      Let us know if there is anything else we can help you with.

       

      All the best, Dean - Wix Team

    Hi Everyone!  

    I am putting together my Social Bar and am in need of an icon/link to a page that is not in the list.  I have Instagram, Facebook, etc but I need a link and icon to my 500px portfolio.  Is it possible to have one created or made available?

      Hi,

      Thanks for contacting us!

      Unfortunately, this is currently impossible. 

      Feel free to add your feature request to our Wish List by posting here.

      You can, however, upload an icon to your site as an image and link it to your portfolio.

      Don't hesitate to contact us again,

      Hi Marceline, i am not looking to insert my social networks in one place but other pages like on your own website:  such as: Jobs, Termas of use 

      theses should not go into the top menue or the categories but be a part of the footer with links. Is that possible? tx

    • Ilia Wix Team

      Replied by Ilia June 8, 2014

      Hi,

      Simply add a terms of use page/jobs and add a link to them in your footer.

      To add elements to the header, drag and drop the element onto the header. The Show on all pages box will be checked automatically.

      To add elements to the footer, click and drag the element to the bottom of the page, click the blue Move to Footer button that appears. The element will appear in the footer of all pages.
       

      Check out our interactive site about header, page and footer (simply click on the image below):

    I would like to use the social media bar that is featured on the party magician template on the template I am editing, which is the advertising agency/marketing Firm template - I like how large the buttons are. How can I do that?

    • Shai Wix Team

      Replied by Shai May 22, 2014

      Hello,

       

      You can create a similar bar by adding 4 (or any other number of them that you wish to have) separate social media bars, each one with an individual service, and choosing the icon you like for each.

       

      When you're done placing the icons you like, you can add a circle under Shapes and apply whatever color you wish to it, then place a copy of it around each social icon, with varying colors.

       

      If I have not been clear, please let me know and I will try to guide you through the process.

      Replied by Niv May 9, 2014

       Hi rwilson9,

      I checked your site and you managed to add the social bar to your site. However, I noticed that you didn't add the links to your Facebook page or Twitter page. To add the links, simply click on the social bar-->Organize Icons-->under "link to" add the link to your social networks accounts/pages. 

       

      If you have any further questions, please let us know.

       

      Kind regards,

    Hello! 

    I can't find the right place where I can ask about:

    1. ...about the possibility installing a "search" window on my site. I can't find in editor this possibility. Is very important to have it. If exist a topping with this subject, show me a link, please, can inform me about that! Tx.

    2. I need RSS. How can I get this?

    3. I am honest with you and I hope you wil not be upset on me :) about these:

    -I am in love with wix design possibilities and I need a site like I build in a draft, only, for the moment. My friend have a wix site and domain and she announce me today, that she decided to leave wix, right now she build another site on other editor and domain. Why? Because she said, that over 100 pages (like I'll need soon to build), her site don't work properly, very slowly discard pages and photos, is panic situation. My site will be a site for architecture, so, will display many images galleries. I'm very worry about these. What you recommend me? Tx.

    -An other problem for her was, that the editor didn't work for a long time, a week she said (in winter somewhere, ... I don't remember exactly ), and she was very angry about that. Frequently is happening that?

    I'm so sorry to tell public about all of this problems but I don't want later, regret my decision choosing a wix site. Is not a blog, not a hobby, will be a very seriously architecture site.

    Thank you for the answer and support. 

    Best regards,

    Didi

      Wix win with the best template I ever seen and a friendly type editor.

      For me, the web-design site is very important, but not in front of a properly work on mobile and very good reach SEO! ... but maybe I'll send you an e-mail with details because I read some "so and so" review about wix and I am a half disappointed.

    The Facebook share button on my site leaves this message on a profile page when used:

    Wix.com - Trying to Connect your domain to your Wix site
    "WWW.RHYTHMMETHODCHICAGO.COM

    These steps will only work if your site is published. If you're not sure that your site is already published, please go to the editor and click Publish."

    My site has been published.  Why isn't listing the site name and description instead?

      Hi,

       

      Please note that I was able to use your Facebook Share button perfectly. I have also noticed that your domain is connected properly to your Wix site. 

      Is this issue persists? If the answer is yes, please provide us with a screen shot of the problem. For instructions on how to take a screenshot, please use this link. I also recommend you to clear your browser's cache. It might resolve this issue.  You can find step by step instructions here.

      Please let us know how it went. Awaiting your reply.

      I'm not talking about the share button in the upper-right which shares the facebook page.  I'm talking about the share button lower on the homepage which is meant to share the website address on ones' facebook wall.

      Please note that this button is a part of the social bar and not a share button.

      The social bar facebook icon is connected to your https://www.facebook.com/RhythmMethodChicago FB fan page, as you can see in this screenshot:
