    Why do formats and text boxes on my live wix site not staying in place when scrolling?

    Ticket by cvela3 | August 15, 2014 | Question
    • So, when I preview/publish my live site, there are text boxes in the header and footer that move (or don't stay in place) when scrolling through the page. Any suggestions or ideas as to why this happens? THANKS!!!

      What you’re describing happens due to setting both your footer and header to a fixed position.

      Setting your header or footer to a fixed position causes it to scroll with your Wix site. As you scroll down the page, the header or footer scroll with you.


      In order to disable that, please click on it → uncheck the box for “fixed position”.

      Should you have any further questions, please let us know! Thanks, Customer Solutions
