      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.

    Hi blakeus1,

    You can add up to 8192 characters to the HTML box.

    How many did you add?

    Thanks, Nicole,

    Is there a limit to the amount of HTML that can be pasted into the HTML Ap.  ??

    I attempted to paste appx 1 page of plain HTML and it only saved about 20% of the code.

    It would be nice to be able to extend this -- if there is a limit.  

    Not using Java or anything.. Just text and links to other web sites.

    Unfortunately, it isn't possible to do so. You can create your site using our HTML5 editor or Flash editor.


    To ensure that you maintain the quality of your images, please follow the instruction in the following link.

    How can I switch from using the Beta version of Wix HTML5 editor?  I ask  this because my pictures are getting compressed and it seems that there is no way to stop this in the Beta version of the editor.

    Hi Brad,


    That's correct, currently the only way to create a vertical menu is by using the workaround you have mentioned. You can use both a menu and buttons -- simply hide the pages for which you want to use buttons from your menu.


    It is impossible to add subpages to buttons, so adding those and a drop down menu will only be made possible with a regular navigation menu.
