    I have written to facebook regarding this question several months ago but no repli so i hope wix or someone can answer this for me.

    If i open a facebook site, can i then turn of users to write on my fb wall? as i dont want any trolls or spammers to fload my site.

    I basically just want a clean fb site where i provide my info and i dont have any erge for people to write or comment on the site. Strictly for advertising purposes and generate more traffic for my wix site.

      The Wix Facebook page will look like a regular Wix page, but will show within your FB page. Visitors cannot write on your Wix website.

      Hi Nat

      As an already wix Premium user, will the created facebook page automatically become a Premium page as well and can i use my facebook voucher then?

      1. Since you have a premium plan, I have removed the ads from your FB page.

      2. Promotional coupon codes must be applied to a new Facebook Ads advertiser’s account within 15 days of the creation of the account .
      You may only redeem this promotional coupon code if you currently do not have an advertiser account on Facebook.

      When you create your ad on Facebook, you'll be taken through a series of steps. At the end, you'll be prompted to enter your billing info. Fill in all the fields then click on the link at the bottom that says "I have a coupon to redeem."

      Enter your personal voucher/coupon code that you can find in "My Account" -> "Manage Premium" -> "Vouchers" then click the 'Submit' button.

      You'll be alerted that your credit card has been added to the account. Click 'Okay', then 'Submit' again. That's it! You'll see a congratulations message once you're finished.

      Maybe i missed something here: 1. Since you have a premium plan, I have removed the ads from your FB page.

      I have not created a FB page yet!

      Thats fine, I removed the ads so when you do have a FB page, they will not appear :)


      Have a great day.

    I would like to activate Facebook icon on my website. I am trying to follow your suggestions without success. I copied and pasted the Facebook page ID and still does not work.  I want to link only business Facebook not personal. Why it does not work?

      You can update your thumbnail image from the Settings section of your Editor (it cannot exceed 200X200 pixels). The thumbnail image for your site will appear when you or your visitors share your site on Facebook. 

      To upload your own thumbnail image:

      1. From the left toolbar, click the Settings icon.
      2. From the Settings list, click Social Settings.
      3. Under Thumbnail, click Upload Thumbnail.
      4. Browse your folders and select your image. Click Open to upload your image.
      5. From the Image Selection window, click your image and then click Done.
      6. From the Social window, click Done.


      Please note - The API with Facebook only works with personal FB account usernames.

      This information is not displayed to users who visit your site, it is only for the purpose of FB admin related functions.

      Adding a Facebook username to the Social Settings section of your Settings will allow you to moderate comments on your site and prevent errors when using Facebook plugins such as Facebook Like.

      Please also use Facebook's Debugger here . Simply type your website URL in the Input URL or Access Token field and click Debug. The Facebook Debugger will process your site so that the title, description and thumbnail pictures appear up-to-date when you post your site to your Wall or Page. 

      To create a Like button for your business Facebook page please follow these steps

      If you are still experiencing difficulties with your thumbnail, please upload it here and we will check it.

    I have two Facebook accounts. One is my personal account and the second is the business Page. When I publish my site and am asked if I want to share via Facebook I have two choices to log in with - my personal profile or my business page. Logging in with my personal account shares it to Facebook, however, if I log in using the business page it does not show up on that account. Can you please advise?

      The share through the editor will only work with the personal profile.. However you can still manually share your site on your business page by pasting the URL of the site.

    Hi, I'm not even sure I'm asking this question in the correct spot. I have a few questions. Firstly is there a more direct way to ask a question and get an answer? I seem to spend half my time clicking on things to find topics with other answers that I simply can't understand :(

    My other question is... I have basically made my wix site www.fairysparkles.com and want the face book button to go to at least one of my face book pages (the multiple pages are a whole nother stupid story)

     I have copy and paste the address into the appropriate spot, when you click on the face book icon it does go there, but it goes into my admin panel so anyone can hack it. I don't want just my regular face book page to come up, but rather the face book page designed for fairysparkles. as a last resort I did try just putting my personal page in that spot, but it also goes to my admin panel so again people could hack it.

    I have no idea what to do.

    Aside from this, when you go to my regular face book page it has 'works at- fairysparklefacepainting' but when you click on this it doesn't go anywhere at all. not my 2 face book fairysparkle pages or my website' it is all getting beyond a joke. if I click on it ,it suggests creating a page but I already have 2. (i know THIS isn't wix fault or concern, but I feel like I'm being told to create so many face book pages and none work) the 2 face book pages I have created can only be seen by me personaly in my home page. It is soooooo frustrating.


    please help.

    I just can't understand any of it.

      ps I have invited people to like these pages and they have, so they can see and access them, but when you just look at symone (my face book page) it doesn't have those extra face book pages icons visible anywhere.(that's what I meant when I said they can only be seen by me- the buttons- not the actual page)

      First off, if you cannot find an answer, you can always ask us at support@wix.com and we'll gladly assist!

      Regarding the Facebook button, it goes to the Admin page on your end, since you're logged in to Facebook as an admin. To test that, try using (being logged to Facebook as) another user account.


      If you need further assistance or information, please let us know,

    I have an existing Wix Page that I'd like to add to an already existing FB Fanpage using the Wix FB App.  All the help I find explains how to do this from scratch.  Is there anyway to add my Wix Page to my fanpage?

      Hey  michellegausepohl,


      Please note that your site summtlendingfb is a regular HTML site, not a Wix Facebook site. 


      If you have a Wix Facebook site on a different account, you can edit it and Publish on your Facebook Page.  To do so, please follow the instructions inthis page, located in the section 'Publishing to Your Facebook Page'.
