"Hello, Wix?": 11 Most Common Support Questions We Get

How do I add and manage my website pages?

When you choose a Wix template and begin editing, you’ll notice that your site already includes several pages (unless you choose a one-page website template). You can edit the template’s pages however you want, deleting or hiding pages, customizing the name of any page and rearranging the order for your needs. Follow the following steps if you want to add new pages to your site.

When should I use anchors and how do I add them?

Anchors are a great way to help your visitors navigate and move around your site. You can add anchors anywhere on your site and then link images, buttons, text and more, so when your site visitors click on one of your anchors, they will be directed to your chosen location. This helps keep your site’s flow in your control, and can be a big help in converting site visitors into customers.

You can also use anchors to create a user-friendly, single page website. Rather than having site visitors navigate from page to page, they can jump directly to different points on your long, scrolling website. Learn how in this blog.
