If you are unable to load the HTML editor for your site, please try troubleshooting with the following steps:

1. Try using another browser, such as Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox.

2. If it does not load in several browsers, please try using another internet connection (if possible). Sometimes the router or network's firewall may block the connection, and this is usually an easy way to test if this is the case.
If you have access to your router and modem, you can try connecting to the modem directly (i.e. plug the ethernet cable from your modem into your computer) in order to see if the router was causing the issue.

3. Try editing another site. Are you able to? If you don't have another site, please go to the 'create' page of Wix.com and try to edit a new template. 
Are you able to load the editor for other sites, or do you experience this problem for all websites?

4. Check your Antivirus and Firewall software. Try temporarily disabling them (for 2-3 minutes) and then edit your site. Was this blocked by the Firewall or Antivirus on your computer?

5. If you use the same extensions in several browsers, please try disabling all of the extensions in any one browser and then edit your site.
Alternatively, if you have Google Chrome installed, you can open a new Incognito window (ctrl+shift+n in windows) and log in to your account. Can you edit your site now?

If you still experience this issue, please let us know and also tell us which of the above steps you've already gone through so that we can continue to assist you in resolving the problem.

    My experience with Wix is this: I manage 2 different websites, both created with Wix. When I want to edit either, I simply open the relevant website y entering its URL. I then scroll down to the bottom of the page. In one case, it says: "Webmaster login" and in the other, "Proudly created with wix.com". When I click on whichever phrase it is, I am taken to a login page which only asks for my password.
    The main problem I have with WIX when I am trying to edit is that it seems to take an awful long time to deal with images, e.g. when downloading photos. If I try to edit an image after adding it to my media folder, it takes forever. I now edit my images before adding them to the image folder. On the other hand, editing text is no problem at all. I don;t know if it is at all significant but I use a Mac and iPhoto.

    We're building an ecommerce site and someone else has been loading the pics.  However the wrong size was uploaded and now is making accessing the editor to delete them impossible.

    Poor thing has loaded A LOT  is there a solution to delete these images so we can access the editior again and post the correct sized ones.

    My editor will not open and sometimes Wix will not even allow me to sign in (it won't recognize my email address at all). When I am able to gain access, the browser gives me an error message when I try to go into my editor.

    My site is www.sawahbali.org. Please help! This is extremely frustrating.

    For the past few days it's IMPOSSIBLE to load the editor. Tried everything - IE 11, Chrome 36, Firefox latest ; Different PC's ; Different Internet connections ; Several websites. PLEASE DO SOMETHING!!! Sometimes it loads after about 2 minutes or so, but most of the time I can just wait & wait for nothing. Wix support team, what's going on???

      I've entered your Editor and I noticed the slow loading time, and it stems from the fact that you have a huge mass of images and pages on the site.


      In order to optimize your site for speed, try to follow these guidelines:

      - Don't use too many animations on your homepage
      - Try to use a uniform font for your site (1-3 fonts)
      - If you decide to use an MP3 on your homepage, try to use a smaller file.
      - If you use many shapes and components in the editor to create a larger image, it would be best to create a single image, with these elements, on your computer and then upload it to Wix.

      Miki, thank you for your quick responce. Unfortunatlly I don't think that my mass of images is the issue. Please let me explain.First of all, this issue just started a few days ago! I've had these images on the website for sometime now, and everything was okay. All images were loaded and Photoshoped to optimization. I have to use them - The entire website idea is a Hi-Def store catalog.
      More over, let's just say you're right about my mass - Is buying a Premium pack, with a large storage, about to solve my problem?

      Thanks again

    Fortunately my problem was solved some time ago. Not sure how exactly as I didn't do anything to sort it. It appears that in my case, it was a problem with the server or my access to the internet.

    I am actually managing 2 websites, both created with WIX and both work well. Except that editing images can take forever. I now edit my images in iPhoto or similar program before adding to either website.

    I regret I cannot offer any constructive response to the issues reported through here.

    Hello, whenever I open my editor it will never load, even though it looks like it is loading. I haven't used my editor within about a month now, and I can't edit it anymore. Does this have something to do with it? I have tried all the steps, and it doesn't work. Mind giving me other tips?

      Time passed is not a factor with the editor working properly or not. The editor comes up just fine form our end:

      Please clear cache (instructions here) and try editing again, if that doesn't work try a different browser such as Firefox.


      Tell us if it worked.
