    I have generated a large list of vehicle parts for individual vehicles and their variants and was shocked to believe there was no search feature and more over it is suggested that we pay for it even though I have a premium account! What am I supposed to do now? I am having to use my browsers search feature to navigate my own website. Am I supposed to tell my customers to press Ctrl+F to input and find their part numbers!? Ridiculous! I invested a lot of time into my wix website and now I'm starting to regret building it.

    I don't understand why there is no "search box" available, you would say it is standard for online stores, we pay for premium(quite expensive) for online store and dont get it as a part?

    Wix will never implement this since they are making money off the search+ app.

    I agree, I have built my website and I want to have my clients come to my website and be able to search for potential homes, and I'm learning now its looks like I cannot do it!!!! I'm shocked nobody has thought to add this already. Don't you have real estate templates to choose from, and yet you don't allow the ability to add a way to search for homes by linking the MLS to the site? If this isn't added and resolved I'm going to have to take both my websites else where.

    I see 885 votes on this thread - many of them months old - and the feature (a very simple feature, at that) still does not exist. 


    Wow. What truth is there to this "priority" claim Wix has made about its wishlist? 


    I'm very disappointed.

      Update - many of them are over a YEAR old. More WOW. 

      Even more disappointed.

      I assure you that the wishlist is taken heavily into consideration when we come to prioritize developing new products and improving existing ones.

      We do appreciate the feedback, and we will notify right here when we have news for this feature.

    Search Box


    I love Wix, and I'm happy with the platform thus far (I've been using it for over a year now). I need to see a native search feature added to the Wix platform (one that I don't have to pay for, because it's silly to have to do that with a third party widget). A search box is a very basic part of a website that I'm surprised doesn't exist already. When customers come to my website knowing the name of the product they want, I want them to be able to find it quickly with an accurate search box that keeps them within my site (without having to open up a new tab to bring them to whatever it is they're searching for). 

    I hope this is a feature that's close to being released. It should have been part of the initial feature list, honestly.

    I cannot continue with wix if I cannot have a search box I need for my clients to be able to search for a business in their area quickly, not troll through hundreds of businesses that are no good to them.  Surly this should be a priority by now, or are your staff unable to design this. Please be honest with us and not waste our time or money if your able to come up with the goods.

      Thanks for contacting us and we apologize for this inconvenience.


      I understand the urgency of this matter to your site, however I cannot guarantee an ETA for this feature. It's not a matter of not being able to design such a feature, it's merely a priority issue. Posting here, as you have, will increase the feature's priority on our developer's road map.


      Thanks for voting for this, please contact us should you require any further assistance,

    Thanks for the answers.  I am not going to use this website until this feature is added as it is  the most important feature for me as an estate agent.  The website won't work with out it simple.
