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.

    Mobile Site Compatibility


    Is there a way to make my Wix website mobile compatible without creating a separate mobile Wix site? I just want mobile users to see the same site as they would if they were to view it on a computer.

      Unfortunately it is not possible anymore to create a mobile website via the old editor.

      In order to create a mobile compatible site, we would suggest switching to the HTML editor which is by default mobile friendly.

      Can you recover the phone site that I deleted by accident on the www.sunbedsgalway.com ? Cause I had a phone site attached to this site  , just deleted it by accident thinking i could re-do it fresh ??? Important asap


      And If I switch to the new HTML editor , how does that work , will I loose my page ranking(SEO is great for me cause I'm on the top) . . I assume I can use my old www.sunbedsgalway.com

      I'm afraid it's impossible to recover deleted mobile websites that were built for Flash websites. I apologize for the inconvenience.

      As Ritti said, we suggest building a new site using our HTML editor!

    I have a quick query. How would I add mobile advertisements (google adsense) to my site once I upgrade to premium? I will can put in the ads for the regular site but when I go to mobile view I am unable to see where I could add some html for the mobile version?


    Thanks for the help,

      Hello P,

      The Google AdSense app is mobile compatible. This means that it should properly display on mobile devices and on the mobile site. To learn more about adding Google AdSense to your site, click here


      Please clarify as to which html code are you referring to and what exactly are looking to do by adding this code. Please include all relevant information regarding the issue. 


      Thank you for contacting Wix. We await your reply to further assist.

      When I go into the mobile view the adds are oversized. That is primarily the issue I am having and trying to resolve.




    • Niv Wix Team

      I noticed that you added some ads using our HTML app. Note that it's not possible to edit the HTML embedded code within the mobile optimized editor. In order to edit or add code, you will need to make these adjustments on your desktop site.


      With regards to the HTML app that doesn't appear on your mobile site, when moving from your Desktop Editor to your Mobile Editor, third-party apps that are not mobile-ready will be hidden automatically. These apps have not yet been optimized for mobile and therefore will not display correctly on your mobile site.


      To add any of these apps back to your site: From the left side of the Mobile Editor, click the Add icon > click Hidden Items> click the eye icon next to the relevant element.

      Note: The apps which have been optimized for mobile sites can be found under the Mobile Optimized section of the Wix App Market.

      Click here for more information about the Mobile Editor.


      If you have any further questions, please let us know.


      Kind regards, 

      Niv, Wix Support

      Thanks for the reply.


      I tried the mobile optimised adsense just now but I can understand how to optimize the size of it for the mobile. It is oversized on the mobile version. I can reduce the size but the size of the add doesnt reduce, a section of the add is excluded.


      It is possible to put a html snippet (i can put a mobile size html code from adsense) in the main desktop version and hide it. Then to unhide it in the mobile version.


      I can't think of how else to do it without having oversized adds in the mobile version?


      Thanks for your help,



    • Alissa Wix Team

      You can add a mobile compatible Google AdSense code to your HTML app, as you suggested. That is indeed a possibility. However, please note that I have added a Google AdSense app to your site and it doesn't look oversized or isn't in any way cut off on the mobile view on my end. Please view the screenshot below:


      Therefore, I would suggest you use the Google AdSense app, as opposed to the HTML app. If this is causing you difficulties, please send us a screenshot of what you're seeing, so that we can further investigate this. To learn how to take a screen shot on Windows, Mac and mobile devices, check out our Troubleshooting Tutorial.


      Thank you. Awaiting your reply.

      Thanks Alissa. The only query I have about the app is I read it only counts 3 of the ads for monitisation. Given my page has 100's of pages with ads on each how will this be impacted? Will I be limiting myself ad revenue wise in anyway compared to going with adsense through the html snippet.

    Argh I really do hate Wix so much. You are beyond belief. Right, all this stuff about 'you can transfer your site' blah blah … you need someone who can speak plain English to re-write your entire contents: the reams and reams of unintelligible drivel you post up here.

    How do I make my new HTML5 the main site? And please don't fob me off with 'transfer' malarkey as it won't let me do that.

    Let's be frank: Wix you're rubbish.

    This HTML not Flash malarkey that everyone is complaining about is just one example of your cumbersome web design packages. Editing facilities are non intuitive and plain awful. The whole HTML5 and Flash issue is cack handed.

    It's fine: I'll vote with my feet and go elsewhere. I'm afraid Wix will go down the pan. I expect you either won't publish this comment or you will take it down, and allow your irritating self-congratulatory video linked comment to stay top of the page.

    Wiw = garbage.

    Mobile and non-mobile content

    I have been using Wix for a mobile only site to store a guide to a conference that I manage. Now that Wix supports HTML5 (very happy about that), I am thinking to use the mobile and non-mobile areas included with my site. My question is whether I can keep the content of mobile and non-mobile areas independent.

    It sounds like a mobile version of any Wix site can be created by pushing a button, but since I have been using mobile-only for 2 or 3 years, I would like to keep that as is, and add other content to the non-mobile side. Can you please provide quidance on this.

    Thank you,

      Hi Mike,


      Thank you for contacting Wix support.

      It is not possible to use your current mobile site with a new HTML5 site.

      However, it is very easy to create a new HTML5 site with a matching mobile site. For instructions, please refer to the Best Reply at the top of this page.

      Browse through our HTML5 Templates using the menu on the left to select a specific category.

    So how can I easily transfer my current wix flash site to HTML5 so I can use the mobile editor

      Thank you for contacting us.

      There is no way to convert a Flash site to HTML 5 at the moment. You will have to rebuild the site using the HTML 5 editor.


      All the best,

      So your telling me that basically I have to spend hours upon hours setting up a new site in HTML 5. Not happy!

      I am paying for a site that is basically not compatible with today's technology, also that you have not provided a tool that I or others can easily transfer the pages from our flash site. Even when I look at my site on the mobile now, it is not even current with the info from the site. Why's that ?

      Hello waveshair,


      We have had the option to build HTML5 sites for several years. I am sorry for the inconvenience, but Flash sites are indeed incompatible with today's technology; that is why we have moved on.


      Smoothly transferring sites from Flash to HTML is not possible, as they are completely different to their very core.


      Could you please let us know what is wrong with your current mobile site?

      Please note that you have a Flash site, while the mobile version is available only for HTML5 users.

      Unfortunately, this means that you cannot create a mobile version for your current site.

      We strongly recommend you creating an HTML5 site, since it is a newer and better web technology, and the mobile version of your site will be created automatically,


      Please feel free to contact us in case you need further assistance.

    I do not have a flash site, and my mobile site does not update when I update my web site. I thought every time I updated my website, it would automatically up date the mobile site into a .version' that I could edit. It has had many improvements so I cant go back and start again. Is there a button somewhere, which just automatically copies the current website version in html to mobile version?
