      Hey sennebanier,

       

      You can now purchase your domain directly from Wix! When purchasing a domain from Wix, your new Wix domain will be automatically connected to the Wix servers. Connecting a domain to your Wix site has never been easier!

       

      For more information on purchasing and connecting your Wix domain, click here.

      If you already have a domain from another domain hosting company, please follow the steps provided here.

      Please note: In order to connect your domain purchased by Wix, you will also have to purchase one of the packages that include connecting your domain.

       

      Also note, some of the Yearly premium packages include a free domain for a year!

      You can find details about promotions here.
       

      After you purchase your Wix premium yearly package ("Combo", "Unlimited" or "eCommerce") , you will be able to find your voucher in My Account > Manage Premium > Vouchers.

      (Your free domain voucher will appear as soon as you purchase an eligible package. Please note that your Facebook Ads and Google Adwords vouchers will only appear in the Vouchers tab after 48 hours.)

       

      Unlimited Sale


      Ecommerce Sale
       

      For instructions on using promotional codes, click here.

      Please note: After the first free year you will have to renew your domain and purchase it.

       

      If you have any other questions, please be sure to let us know!

      Thank you,

      Eyal, Wix Customer Support Team

    The promotional page said that one could optimize a website for mobile with one click, without having to create a new website.  However I have not found a way to do anything but create the mobile site from scratch.  Where is this magic button?

      Hi,

      I checked your Wix account and I saw you have build your main site using the Flash editor.

      Please note: The new mobile editor is available only for sites which were build using the HTML editor.

      I recommend you to check our HTML templates.

      You can create your HTML site now by clicking 'Templates' and choosing an HTML template. For more information on how to get started, click here

    I already got a website but not on wix. 

    I was thinking of gradually move all my stuff from that site to a new wix site and as soon as I finish this process, delete the other website and only use the wix one.

    Is there a possibility to create a wix site, have it private for some time and then public?

    and can I give it a random domain for now, and change it later when my current domain will be free?

    • Eyal Wix Team

      Hey dp7777,

       

      Please note that you can't transfer sites and content from from our competitors to Wix. 

      You're site won't go live until you don't decide to publish it. Once you do, the format of the free Wix site URL is username.wix.com/sitename.

      You can find your URL simply by clicking on Settings inside your editor > Site Address. You will find your URL under "Your Site Address is:".
       

      Once you wish to connect a domain (please note that this is a premium feature) you will be able to do so and when your users enter your free Wix URL, they will be redirected to your newly connected domain.

       

      You can also use the following coupons to receive a discount on the yearly Unlimited/eCommerce premium packages!

      If you have any other questions, please let us know!

      Thank you,

      Eyal, Wix Customer Support Team

    The blog option seemed to me more comfortable to use for updates rather than a news page; BUT I couldn't find a way to have a blog post link on my homepage the way I can do with news (with the whole post or even the beginning with the "read more" option...

     

    Can you please explain to me how I can do that?

    Thanks!

      Hey, 

      You can link your text in your blog post to your Home page by editing your post and adding a link from a word or a sentence in your post as you can see in the attached screenshot below. 


       


      Please let us know should you require any further assistance!

      It's not what I meant....

      I meant, having this (see mark) on my homepage as well as the blog page (that I had named "news" even though it's a blog form).

      Hi,

      You can not simply copy-paste the blog from one page to another.

      You can either:

      - Add button that links to the blog page/ or to a specific post.

      To add a button:
       
      1. From the left in the Editor, click the Add icon.
      2. From the Add list, click Buttons & Menus. Click one of the button options.
      3. From the Button Settings window, under Button Text, type a name for your button.
      4. Under Link to, click the field.
      5. From the Link Settings window that opens, click your Link type: Web Address, Page, Email or Document and add your link.
      Note: For more information about adding links, see the below section, Linking Your Buttons.
      6. From the Link Settings window, click Done.
      7. Click outside of the button to close the Button Settings window.

      - Add part of the post text then link it to the post's page/ blog page.

      As Alina explained.

      -Add a new blog and copy-paste the content of the old one.

      Hi,

      You can't add content content to the bottom of your Reviews page because of your site's height. You can increase the height of the site by going to Settings-> Appearance, but note that you can only increase it up to a maximum of 2800 pixels.

      Hi  impaulchung,

       

      A free Wix URL is made of username.wix.com/sitename.
       

      You can find step by step instructions about how to change your username here.
      To change your site name, go to My Account -> click on Manage & Edit Site next to your site and click Rename under Site Actions on the right side.
       

      To change your own domain please go into the Wix Domain Manager (My Account -> Domains from the top bar) and remove your old domain and then add the new domain again under your preferred connection method or purchase a domain.
       

      To connect your own domain to your site, upgrade to Premium and purchase a domain or get one for free (for the purchase of yearly package- Combo, Unlimited or eCommerce)! Click here to learn more.
       

      If you still do not own the new domain name, you can purchase it from Wix! You can find more information here.

      Regarding the writing board I recommend to add our Facebook comments app that can be efficient for your needs. 

      With the Facebook Comments box you can allow your visitors to make comments directly on your site by logging in with their Facebook account.

      For more information click here.

      Also take a look at our App Market to see if we have an app that will suit your needs.

      The Wix App Market is available from within the Wix Editor. In the Wix App Market, you will find a variety of apps that you can add to your site that were created by third-party companies and individuals.


      The Wix App Market is split up into several categories; an app may appear in more than one category. Clicking on an app will open a pop-up with more information about the app which may include an overview, a live demo and an overview of the app's features as well as information about the Premium version of the app, if one exists. These apps add new features, options and functionality to your Wix site! You can easily add these third-party apps to your site.

       

      Click here for more information about the Wix App Market.
