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.

    Ok, but this "new feature" is something any programmer should be able to do.

    I'm not even a programmer and even I know how this works.

    Instead of fixed sizes, all sizes are calculated based on percentage of the size of the screen or parent object.

    This is normal HTML function (for example you write width="100%" instead of writing for example width=1024). Using the same method for text would require a few lines of code but any professional programmer would be able to write that said code in a couple of minutes at most.

      Hey, 

      I have added your vote to the main Wishlist thread. Creating a responsive template for all the Wix sites is something that requires time. 

       

      We try to provide the best service that we can, but unfortunately sometimes there are features that are not available. We agree some features which are very necessary are lacking. We are working on adding new features all the time. 

      Thanks, 

      Alina, Wix Support Team

      Well, since someone already wrote the code for this feature for the Flash editor (plus it's a REALLY easy thing to program...really, ask any programmer), it shouldn't take require more time than making a pot of coffee.

      The only thing that could possibly take time would be for the programmers to learn a new programming language and even then, they would be able to create this function without mastering the language.

      Since there is obviously a great demand for this (it's already a function in the Flash editor by default so customers are already using it), it should be one of the main priorities.
      (2nd priority: Import all the fonts used in the Flash editor to the HTML editor)

    Hello,

     

    Please note that Flash and HTML5 are completely different platforms and technologies.

    There are several features that work in Flash and don't exist in HTML5 and vice versa. 

     

    That's why auto-resize in HTML5 is not just a "fix", but a complete new feature.

     

    At Wix we work instantly on new features, you can check for the updates here.

    responsive template

    Why don't they just fix this when it's already working in the Flash version?

    How hard could it be to fix when it's already fixed in the old version?

    Responsive Websites

    I wanted to know if the websites you provide can be responsive or if you currently have website templates that are responsive.

    Thank you,

    How can our webpage be responsive and adjust itself

    How can our webpage be responsive and adjust itself so a lot of unnecessary black background will not appear on bigger screens? Are there more responsive templates available? see: www.LegalDefenseforVictimsofWar.org

    Don't know who said some of the really hard neg. things about this topic.  I have put on the wish list a need for dynamic or responsive layout, but I think Wix has an awesome product and is going up and up..
    I do no agree with the mobile editor being an equal to the responsive design approach..

    #1. SEO.  Clearly Google has even pointed out that potentials for redundant content could be an issue.. with redirects to a sub domain or mobile domain for a website.

    #2  The work to properly trim the fat using the mobile editor.. and ensure that it works on all mobile devices is NOT yet ideal.  I have posted that the bar at the bottom is strange to some users and also covers a great deal of phone screen space for viewing.. no way to disable it?  Also, the "fixed" headers and footers can lead to parts of the mobile site shifting from left to right as one is navigating up and down.  For Wix budgets, work like this become a profit buster for WixProDesigners..

    But, I think the future with many unknowns for mobile devices (ie. Size, compatibility, OS, etc.. on and on..) will definitely push platforms to provide a one size fits all approach.  Soon, there will not be a distinction of "Mobile" vs. "non-Mobile" or what that even means.  Updates and design changes.. integration of apps.. etc.  All mean double or more the work with always having to use two separate development tools.

    And.. It does matter regarding DNS, IP, WixAccount name and other DNS Records...for SEO.

    Love Wix, but that is my 2cents on the issue..   for what it is worth. 
     

    Regards and Keep up the Great Development Wix has going!

    It's absolutely ridiculous that Wix's templates are not responsive on different desktop sizes. I get the freakin' mobile site is responsive now -- great, that's at least slightly progress. But to be a web-building platform without responsive template design is actually laughable. And the horrid customer service -- telling customers FOR A YEAR that it's "merged onto a wishlist" and "coming soon" -- is disgraceful. It's embarrassing to show a professional website in an interview when you don't know if it will fill the screen or be a tiny speck in the corner instead. More than that, it's not acceptable. I will be switching web platforms and taking my domain elsewhere.

      And I mean for a YEAR, probably more... that's just as far back as I got in the comments in this thread. I'm sure they go back even further.

      Hi Ella,

      Apologies for being so harsh! I went back and read through my comment and should have used a more civil tone. Was merely frustrated after reading through 10+ pages of the same customer service feedback. I think Wix has a lot of good things going for it, but without the foundational tool of responsive desktop design, I'm really not sure how professional my website can look. Thanks for your patient response and again I apologize!

    Is it possible to change the size of content relative to the background?

    I've got a Wix web site, www.mikeylikesit.us which I built using one of Wix' standard templates. I just discovered that the site does not look good on some laptop computers. I would like to increase the size of the content part of the page relative to the background. Is this possible? I assume that this specification is part of the template, so maybe it is not possible to change, but I though I'd ask.
