• Overview

    Text on your site provides your users with necessary information about who you are and what your website is all about. Text and content are also very important for the SEO of your site. Add new text boxes to your website from Add or edit and delete text by double-clicking on your text boxes.

  • Adding Text

    You can add new text to your site from Add.

    If you have prepared your text in another document, first copy and paste it into a Notepad or other .txt program, or into a blank "plain text" email. This cleans up unnecessary codes and information that are added automatically to text by some programs. Copy the text from the plain text document into your Wix Editor.

    To add text:

    1. From the left side of the Editor, click the plus sign to open Add.
    2. From Add, click Text.
    3. Click Title or Paragraph. A text box appears.
    4. From Text, click Edit Text or double-click the text box.
    5. Type your text into the text box and format your text from the text editor bar.

    The maximum number of characters (including spaces) that can be added to one text box is 75,000.

    6. Click outside of the text box to close the text editor bar.

    Text is added to your site.

  • Editing Text

    You can edit any of the text on your site by double-clicking the text box.

    To edit text:

    1. Double-click the text box.
    2. Type or edit your text into the text box and format your text from the text editor bar.

    The maximum number of characters (including spaces) that can be added to one text box is 75,000.
