    How do I change the size of my HTML site?

    Question

    One of the features of a Wix site is that the height of the site's pages does not have a predetermined size. Your pages will adjust their height dynamically according to the content that you add to them. If you add more text or elements, your pages will become longer in order to accommodate them.

    To make your page longer, click the element located at the bottom of your page (or any element that you'd like to move downward) and drag if down using the Drag Handle.

    To shorten your page, click the element located at the bottom of your page, and resize it using the Stretch Handle or drag it upwards using the Drag Handle.

    Currently, the width of your site is fixed at 980px. This size was chosen in order to accommodate the largest number of internet users that will be visiting your site. This is common for the new generation of sites, as it ensures compatibility with the many different smart devices being used today (i.e., iPads or tablets).
