    I keep trying to edit my text and the text keeps going blank or white to where I can't see anything. I've never had this issue before today! Please let me know what is going on so I can edit text on one of our pages. Why is the text going blank once you try to edit now?

      I was unable to recreate the problem. On my end there is no problem in editing text boxes on your website:

      Please clarify what exactly are you referring to - if you have edited the text style for 'Title' please go to your editor --> in the left menu click 'Design' -->  'Fonts' --> 'Customize Fonts'.


      If you've changed something within your site and wish to revert back, you can overview of all edits and changes you have made to your saved and published website. It makes it easy for you to view, flag or restore to a prior version of your website at any point.


      To access your site history:

      1. From My Account, next to your site, click Manage & Edit Site.

      2. From the right of the page that opens, under Site Actions, click My Site History.

      Your site history page opens.

    Hi there,

    I am getting very frustrated with WIX HTML5 editor. A while back I build our company website without issues. Now, trying to edit text it all goes unpredictable. I double click to edit and font changes and/or colour changes unpredictably. trying to change the font, style and/or colour sometimes works, mostly not.

    No change whether I reset the browser, change the browser (Safari, Google Chrome, Firefox), clear cause or what have you. I am scared to change anything on my site by now as I never know what is going to happen and whether I disrupt my layout!

    Hi Wix,

    I added a gallery to a page on my site. But now I cannot navigate to the text behind the gallery. You cant see what the text box says and it looks bad. How can I get behind the gallery to edit what was already there?




    • renategk6

      Replied by renategk6 April 5, 2014

      And I just figured it out, I moved the gallery over then I was able to click on the boxes in the background and delete them. 

      Thank you! :)

    Hi - I am having trouble editing the text on our mobile site.  Please see the join our campaign page - the text flows off screen.

    Also we are having issues with viewing our site in google chrome - text and buttons shift and overlap.

    Looking for assistance.

      I have noticed you currently use the Pre-Optimized View rather than the more recommended Optimized Mobile View. Converting to the recommended mode can save a great deal of hassle.

      Please go to the mobile Editor > Mobile Settings > Mobile View > Optimized Mobile View.


      A mobile-optimized site is automatically created for you from the contents of your desktop HTML website. After viewing and editing your mobile site in the Mobile Editor, activate Optimized Mobile View to direct your users to this optimized version of your website from smartphone devices.


      New elements and changes that you make to your desktop site will affect your mobile site. Therefore, we highly recommend building and editing your desktop site to completion before editing your mobile site and enabling Optimized Mobile View.

      All the best, Or

      The link above is just one example of many pages that have the same issues.

      Thank you for your help

      Regarding the first issue - please note that while copying texts to your Wix site, they can bear alongside with them external codes that affect the text alignment and appearance.

      Please copy your text to notepad, then recopy and paste it again. I have tried it and the issue was solved. All you will have to do next is readjusting the links and text style customization.


      In regard to the difference between the browsers. please note that Wix HTML5 websites are optimized to display properly for the most common browsers and devices used today. However, it's important to note that the various browsers and devices use different rendering engines, and therefore may display minor differences in your website.


      Sometimes these minor differences can have a domino effect- for example, a 1% difference in rendering of a font size, can cause a line with only 20 characters to appear 1/5th of a character wider. If your text box doesn't have any extra room for the text, this may cause the last word to wrap to the next line, which will make your text box longer and will 'push' the rest of the components under the page down (By the way, if you experience this issue, it's really easy to solve- you just need to make the text box a little bit wider in your editor to allow for extra space so that the text will still fit, even when it's rendered wider).

      The web standard is still evolving, and it's important to keep up with the newest technologies and standards. That's why Wix is at the forefront of HTML5 website development.
      We are doing our best to minimize the effects caused by the aforementioned factors, while continuing to provide you with the flexibility to create the most amazing website on the web.

      For the time being, however, there is a work around that should help to reduce some of the alignment issues you may be experiencing. By placing misaligned content within a ‘container’, you are securing several different items within a single shape. Items within a ‘container’ are locked into position and so will not appear to move on their own accord and/or knock other items out of alignment.

      Use a Box that is set to appear as transparent (by moving the opacity down to 0) as your ‘container’. Place all of the various components within this Box so that they are ‘attached’ to it. Once within their container, these items are essentially grouped together and will not fall out of alignment.

    I have trouble editing my text, because when I click on edit text, the box is white and I can see, change or write my text. 

    My site is http://www.emiliekleding.com/ and it's a problem on all my pages (besides the blog page). Really hope you can help!
