    Hi there, I see that the Wix website has been created using the Wix software.  Can you tell me how I can get a drop down box to appear when something is clicked on.  For example, on your own site, if you go to Premium, then click on "Wix Premium Plans" a box drops down.  How do I do this please?
    Thanks, Diane

    Behavior not existing in WIX, no pull down text, explanation that doesn't relate with the editor, I think I might go back to Wordpress!. A pull down text is the most important behavior that should be incorporated into a website. I spent the whole day trying to make a website which in the end I am reading it doesn't really do what it it's supposed to do. Very frustrating.

      You can search for an external app that behaves this way and embed it to your site using our HTML app.

    @tonyduffy01744, thank you for your wonderful feedback! When customizing your drop down menu, you have 30 colors in your palette to choose from. There are 3 different Styles you can set for your menus as well.


    In general, you can customize your site's color palette with 35 different colors. You can do this via Design > Colors > Customize Palette > choose the colors you want to use in your site here.

    *You can also add your own customized colors to the editor via the Hex # here.


    Wix is constantly adding new features to the Editor. We will release more colors in due time for you, however I cannot give you an exact date of when this will happen. You can always keep up to date with our features coming soon here.


    You can add text on top of a Box right now. Simply add your Box to the page > then add your Text on top of it via Add > Text. Are you having issues doing this?

    I have been looking for many months and Wix is truly the best I have come across.  The other website companies simply do not know abou SEO. They have descriptions missing on their pages and they have lots of keywords stuffed into their keywords section. They have H1's missing and so on. When I analysed Wix, they having a Google ranking of 8 and a page speed of 98 or so. The only problem at the moment is that I am limited to the number of colors I can add to the drop down box with Wix.  May be I am wrong but I have only managed to put about 10 or so. My daughter needs 18 colors for the customers to pick from. Plus she needs the sizes, Wix do this, so I do not have a problem with this.  The other thing is that my daughter also lets the customers pick their own name to be designed on her products.  Can anyone tell me please: Will Wix offer more colors to be put on the site and a box to write names in.  I would be very happy to do more sites with Wix if they can offer more colors.  For example if someone wants to pick from 20 clolurs they have a better choice to match their deco.  Please Wix sort this out as soon as possible. Cheers Tony

    Is there any way of writing this feature into HTML code when the website is live?

    It is is an important feature of my website and I thought I would be able to do it.

    I'm sorry for the confusion, it is indeed a workaround and it should do the best to recreate this feature.

    I'm afraid that other than that there is currently no option to accomplish this effect, although if you choose a different transition, such as Out-In, and make sure the menu and all static objects are indeed in the header/footer, so only the page itself moves, it should look more alike.

    I have forwarded your feedback to the relevant department and we will investigate the written material.


    Thanks, and we apologize for the inconvenience,

    Hi, thanks for your reply. 

    "Then simply link the button to the second page, and it will look like it has opened it." - No it won't!  It will be obvious that it hasnt just slid out, but that in fact a new page has opened!

    I think that it's very misleading that the site says "wix.com has proudly been created using Wix", when in fact it hasn't really.  On reading this, I presumed that the software we accessed would have the same capabilities as your own site, but it's just not true.

    I do think that Wix is fab and it's got some great features, but misleading customers isn't cool.  Either your site is made using Wix, or its not and it clearly isn't.

    Hi Diane,

    The Wix site was created using Wix's technology but not completely using our editor, as they are features that need to be tailor made for a large scale site as ours.

    You can workaround this feature by doing the following:

    Create 2 pages, one with the content you want and the button to open it, and the other is the page with the content on. Then simply link the button to the second page, and it will look like it has opened it.



    If you need any further assistance please let us know.
