    I seem to be locked out of editing, no idea how it happened but hopefully a simple setting.

    Wix.com could be a wonderful site but for some reason

    you simply refuse or do not know how to fix the issue

    of double clicking on the text box to bring up the tool palette

    above the text box. If you could fix that 1 problem and make it

    universal for most recent browsers think of the time and money

    saved not having your help staff try and figure out the fix.

    How come CafePress doesn't have this Text Edit issue?

      Actually I just quit all applications and then restarted my iMac

      and when I went to Account/Edit page I was able to double-click

      on a text box and get that beloved tool pallet above the text box.

      So now I love Wix.com again. Later today, when I can't edit text ...

      Who knows.

    Every time I edit a text, "WebRep Overall Rating" shows up in my text box with some lines, and whatever I do I cannot get rid of them. I delete it, then save, but it magically shows back up again. How do I get I get rid of it for good?

      It appears you have some sort of add-on or a tool bar that is causing this issue.
      Do you have AVAST Webrep installed in FireFox?

      To remove you need to open the avastUI, Additional Protection, WebRep, and click uninstall for firefox. Then restart your browser.

      All the best, Dean - Wix Team

    I'm trying to edit my text...

    I have double clicked on the text box and tried the "edit text" but nothing is happening.... I have added a lot of text the problem just started today...

      When you are referring to " a lot of text" you mean in that specific instance? Are you able to add other text?

      Please be sure to copy and paste the text to a notepad first- and then paste it to the editor. That way you strip the text from unnecessary coding.

      Please elaborate so we can resolve this issue with you :o)

      Best, Ritti

    I have never had a problem editing my site until NOW. Same issue as the previous posters---cannot edit my text. This is very frustrating and the canned responses of trying a new browser, clearing cache, etc. is not helpful and adds to the level of frustration. It is obviously an issue on your end and it needs to be fixed, not passed along to your paying customers.

      Hello dooleychambers ,

      I am sorry to hear that you've been experiencing difficulties editing your text. 

      Are you not able to Edit your text at all? Every time you open the Editor?

      Could you please provide us with a screencast of the problem so we can try to pin-point the cause? You can use www.screenr.com.

      Thank you for your cooperation.
