      Please clarify the question - you can use the undo option in the top ruler of the Editor, as well as restoring prior versions of your Wix site by following these instructions.


      In case this was not your intention, please let us know and be as specific as possible.

      All the best, Or

      To set your site's background: From the left side of the Editor, click the Design icon > click Background > select a background from the options provided or click Upload & Customize Background.

      If you have chosen to upload your own background: From Customize Background, click Add Image > select an image from your media library or click Upload Images > click Change Background.

      You can edit any wix template and change it to your liking. To delete the online store you can select the product gallery and click delete. Then you can place the images that you want to display on your site in one of our image galleries.

      To add a gallery to your site: From the left side of the Editor, click the Add icon > click Gallery > choose a gallery type from the list.

      To add images to your gallery: Click the gallery that you added to your site > click Organize Images > click Add Images.

    Suppose you have created a site using Template A, but you are not happy with it, so you wish to switch to Template B. Is there a way to do that without having to start from scratch? In other words am I able to switch to Template B without having to reintroduce my content?

    • Jonathan Wix Team

      Replied by Jonathan April 29, 2014

      No, there is no way of doing that once the site is saved from template A. You can of course manually change everything about the site but you just can't do it in one click of a button by choosing template B.

      May I ask what are you referring to by: ' too large ', are you images look cut off?

      Unfortunately, if your image size is bigger then the size of the gallery, the image will be cropped.

      In this case, you will need to resize the images to a smaller size and then upload the images again to the editor.

      You can use this site to resize your image.

      Please try to upload the images in the exact size as they will appear in the gallery.

      To check the gallery size, please use the ruler.

      You will be able to find the ruler button on the top toolbar.

    Author Shop template will not let me edit text.  I have tried from different directions, no luck.  Went on Home, Bio and Contact pages and not luck.  I know it has to be simple.  Is this template defective?  or am I?

    Thank you

    Hi guys! I am setting up a wix template for an alcohol brand and I need to put an age gate in the front in order to meet our legal guidelines. Does something like this exist in WIX or can I add an HTML form?

    I would also like to add our own SSL certificate.

    Please let me know.

      Currently, we don not have this kind of feature, however you can try to integrate external feature using the HTML app.

      With the HTML App you can test and add your own HTML code to your Wix site.

      For more information check out the tutorial below, or you can click here.

      *Take a minute to read through the Known Issues & Limitations of the HTML iFrame/Embed App via the link above before using this.

    Hi Wx Team, I'm trying to edit the 'Sea B&B Template' and have encountered a problem... I've uploaded new images into the Home page slideshow OK, but I cannot see how to alter the existing sample images that appear as a strip along the top of other pages. When I click on these images they simply appear as part of the 'Header', not as editable elements. How should I proceed? Thank you...

      Hey  biznessmain,


      I can see this appears on your 'Contact' page. Please click on an element on that page and try using Ctrl + M to toggle through the elements on your page until the element is selected. This way you will be able to reach the items placed at the bottom part of your editor and simply remove them.


      Make sure to click save and publish to view the changes on your live site.

      Wow thanks that's a great help i saw many things in there i need. Also i have had not really trouble but just wondering if im making extra steps.

      I was making a text box of what i wanted to call my links then putting a button over it to create my links. am i making extra work for myself or am i giving myself more options by having it this way?

      i noticed that when i try to aline this stuff i was having a difficulty selecting both the text and button of multiple links in a row and evenly spacing them apart. Do i have to aline them one at a time or is there a selecting method that can get to highlight everything in a row. I was using the shift key; and trying to click all these almost identical  size boxes but i could never get all of them at one time.

      i think i did a good job at evenly spacing them on my ABOUT page yet Should i just be making buttons alone? and is that limiting in anyway compared to the layering that im doing?

      you dont have to be brief if its complicated to explain i'll put in as much time as it takes to understand it.

      Regarding text which links, a better way than a button is to add a text box and link the text itself, you do so by editing the text, marking a word and clicking on the chain icon button which appear on the text supplementary box.


      Alignment will not be an issue because you can have a large paragraph and link certain words within it and place spaces between lines. This will give the appearance of separate text object but between themselves they will always be perfectly aligned.
