Wix offers an amazing feature which takes your HTML site and automatically creates an optimized version for mobile view. You can then edit your Mobile site using the Mobile Editor.


To switch to the Mobile Editor, simply click the Mobile icon at the top left of your Editor. From here you can change the placement and size of your elements, hide elements from your mobile site, create a Mobile Action Bar and even change the style of certain elements, such as text.

    You did not specify which site you are referring to.

    If you delete your mobile site that is attached to the site www.4thewild.com, your site will show up on mobile devices. Please note that you can view your site on a mobile device, but HTML5 is not optimized for mobile yet, which means it won't be fully functional.

    Hi created my site and then created a mobile version of it.  I really don't like the look of the  mobile site. I wanted to know if there was a way I can make sure my site is going to show up before i delete the mobile version  because I don't want to have to do the work all over again. I sell clothing so updating both site is to time consuming.

    If you don't want your Flash site to be visible to search engines, you can unpublish it by going to settings > Site Optimization > uncheck "Let search engines find my website".

    Once you have unchecked this box be sure to hit Save! It will take about one month for Google to update its databases.

    If you would like to temporarily remove your site from the web completely, you can create a new Master Page that says that your site is under construction and make it the first Master Page of your site. If you don't add menus or buttons that lead to your other pages, this Master Page will be the only page your users see!

    Alternatively, you can delete it all together from your 'My Account'.

    Please note that it will take about one month for Google to update its databases in this case as well.

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

    Unfortunately this isn't possible at the moment, and adding a mobile site activates an auto-redirect to it from mobile devices.

    Feel free to add your feature request to our Wish List by posting here.

    Hi there,

    So my HTML5 and mobile site are working fine.  My question: is there away to allow the people that choose to view on a smartphone, i.e. iPhone, not to automatically force them to the mobile site? Such as link on the mobile site that would allow viewing of the full HTML5 site from the mobile site.

    Hi admartistphoto,

    I don't see that you created a mobile site under this account. Please create one, publish it and let us know if the issue persists.
