    My wix website is hosted at godaddy.

     

    When I edit the website and hit "publish" the popup box says that it has been published at the wix.com website address. How do I edit a seperately hosted website?

      Hey gatehouse68

      To be clear- your site is hosted by Wix.   Your domain is hosted by Godaddy.

      When you save and then click publish simply go to your domain name, refresh and you will see that the new editor version is showing up on the live site.

    Hello,

    I have edited my website and published after making my desired changes. The issue that I am encountering is that the website is not loading when I try to view it.

    What could the issue be?

    Hello folks,

    How can i download my site or is there any view source editor in wix site ?

    • dinamiso Wix Team

      Hi,

      It is not possible to download a Wix site or any of its pages as the Editor needs to be in constant connection with our servers. As such. it is not possible to work offline or save site pages to your computer.
      You can use the "print screen" option to save your site pages to your computer, if necessary.
       

      Note: Wix does not support the exporting of files created using Wix to an external destination or host. All Wix creations are hosted on Wix's servers. The advantages of using Wix as your host include improvements to your site's loading time, search engine optimization and more.

       

      We are using Ajax Crawling as a way for the search engines to read your websites code. With Ajax Crawling, your content, data and design are merged together and extracted far easier and quicker by search engines.
       

      Using Ajax Crawling however means that accessing your source code is a little different.
      If you access the source code the usual way (right clicking and view source), you will not see your websites content but rather a code, <meta name="fragment" content="!">, to tell search engines that we are using Ajax Crawling.
       

      If you wish to view your website source code, use the below examples of where to place '?_escaped_fragment_=' within your domain name in order to access the escaped fragment version of your website. Once you are viewing the escaped fragment version of your website, you may right click and select 'View Source Code' in order to access your websites source code.
       

      Example site - www.wixexample.com
      1. Home Page - place ?_escaped_fragment_= at the end of your URL
      www.wixexample.com/?_escaped_fragment_=
       

      Example site - www.wixexample.com#!AboutUs/c2414
      2. Individual pages - ?_escaped_fragment_= in place of the #!
      www.wixexample.com/?_escaped_fragment_=AboutUs/c2414
       

      We can assure you that your individual pages are seen by Google.
       

      For more information about Ajax Crawling click here.

      Hi,

      In order to edit the site after publishing, you will need to open the editor .


      You can now use the Editor freely. You may customize any chosen item by clicking on it and manipulating it with options from the property panel on the right side of the editor.
       

      For our Editor help please click here.

      Hello,

       

      Yes! If you want to unpublish your site, you can choose to hide it from search engines.

       

      To hide your site from search engines: From the left side of the Editor, click Settings > click SEO (Google) > click the toggle Allow search engines to find my site to turn this option off (change from green to red) > click Done.

      Once you have clicked the toggle be sure to hit Save inside your Editor!

    the changes are not showing up. I had to call your company to get my last changes fixed.

    Now that I want to make more changes I'm encountering the same problem.

    I don't have the time or energy to call you guys every time I need to update my page.

    this is ridiculous!!

      Hey pranav11096,

       

      Please note that while you edit your site, your site is still online. However, for the changes that you've made in the editor to go live, you will need to publish your site again. 

       

      To publish your site: From the top of the Editor, click Publish > review your SEO and Mobile View options > click Publish.

      After a few seconds, the confirmation box will appear > click OK.

       

      Note: Saving changes will not make them appear live. Every time that you save your site, you will need to click Publish to make the saved changes appear live.

       

      To learn more about Saving and Publishing, click here.

       

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