Wix offers several options to ensure that your website always looks great, on both desktop and mobile. 


Use the built-in guidelines, or add some of your own, via the 'Rulers and Guides' button at the top of the Editor, to test and verify that your site looks the way you want  it to on different computer and tablet screen sizes. Sites do not automatically adjust to screen size, so play around to get the right proportions for you.


Wix templates are also optimized for view on smartphone devices. Any changes you make in the Desktop Editor are automatically reflected in the Mobile Editor.


You can adjust your mobile site layout and even hide certain elements from view. Any changes that you make in the Mobile Editor will not be reflected in the Desktop Editor This allows you to create a better mobile experience for your site visitors.

    Please note, the Optimized Mobile View will appear on smartphone devices only. Tablets and iPads will show your desktop HTML site.

    Wix? Google prefers responsive websites for it's SEO. It's also the most convenient web layout because you only need 1 site and 1 design. The framework does all the other work for you. Please start offering responsive templates. You are also missing the point in your tutorial video, you said your editor lets you create 1 website with 2 different views - one view for desktop, one view for mobile. The whole point of responsive is you don't need more than 1 view, the website adapts to ALL devices so it appears the same.

      that's exactly the point, the mobile screen is far smaller than a PC screen (which our websites adept to automatically via different sizes of different screens hence "responsive") and that is why you need to choose which components you wish to "hide" from your mobile site version.

      Wix is NOT responsive, Alon. You just said you need to "choose which components you wish to hide from your mobile site version". That is the definition of non-responsive. The whole point of responsive is you don't have to make any changes at all to the mobile version. The website appears the exact same way on mobile as it does on desktop. Wix does not. The mobile version of wix is a much different appearance from the desktop version, unless you move things around manually in an attempt to make it look similar. Hence, "non-responsive". Get with the times and start using the responsive framework.

      Wix sites are responsive, the fact you can (not need to) make a change to appear only for mobile devices is not a drawback, it's a bonus, you can also not use it. We have users who specifically ask for the site to look differently on one platform but not the other. You can create a site and not change anything about it for mobile platforms, it will adapt by itself, we have added a manual option to make the feature more customizable.

      Then why does my site appear differently in mobile if the site is responsive? My site does not appear even remotely the same way as it does on desktop. It looks completely different on mobile. If Wix is responsive, why is nothing the same?

      Your site isn't supposed to look on a mobile device as it does on a desktop view. 

      However, you can modify your mobile site to your liking. Please click here to learn more.

    Full Screen Optimization


    I was wondering if wix could create a feature that allows you to optimize your screen for wide-screen use. For example, when I go on wix.com and have my browser on full screen, the website is nice and full with content very close to the edges of the page. When I click the minimize sign, everything adjusts nicely... For example, the section with the heading "Over 45,000 new people join every day", the feature boxes, such as "100s of Stunning HTML5 Templates", go from 2 rows x 4 columns to 4 x 2 to adjust to the narrowed view.

    Most people use full screen when they are browsing the internet, and yes, you can add shapes outside of the lines, but if you are on the ipad or have your browser minimized, then it cuts off everything outside of those lines. This makes it pointless to add important things there. It just looks empty when you are using full screen and you have all that empty space on the sides.

    Please make this a feature.

    Responsive design

    When will wix incorporate responsive designed templates? I will not be using wix again after this year if it is not fully implemented. The landscape of the web has changed and being viewed on all sized platforms is important. Also, a more dynamic interface is in demand for my customers. Is this in the works? and when will it be rolled out?

    Are there any plans to bring in responsive websites?

    I know we have mobile sites as part of our WIX hosting, but I am interested to know if Wix have any plans to bring in responsive websites as this is becoming more needed as viewing changes to different size tablets and phone screens.

    The ideal solution would be to either merge the Flash and HTML5 completely, or to make the two platforms have identical features and letting the authors choose between fixed sizes or responsibe design.

    • Marina Wix Team

      Replied by Marina April 25, 2014

      Unfortunately it's not possible to merge the two platforms as they're different platforms. 


      The HTML platform is compatible with more devices than the flash, and for this reason may serve as a better choice for one who's looking for a responsive site. 


      Thank you for adding your feedback!

      But it should be possible to have pretty much the same features on both, no?
      For starters, having them use the same fonts shouldn't be hard.
