Can I migrate a WIX site to Corvid. If yes, how to do that?
Yes. Start here for more information.
While all the new changes are interesting and exciting ...
Was happy with a functional site in Wix Code.
Turbo introduced several headaches, but work-arounds were mostly possible.
With Corvid, my site is now in the twilight zone.
After navigating to a new page, the page won't load correctly unless I click browser refresh.
LightBoxes give a strange "failed to clone" error when you close them.
Some lighbox code just fails.
Boxes (holding info text and buttons) don't obey the "Hidden on load" property.
Floating menus that worked fine in Wix Code now fail, etc.
HTML frame fails.
Site is now a mess, kinda trashed.
Site experiencing all the failures mentioned here:
WixTurbo rollout breaking code
If you are experiencing technical issues, I would suggest that you contact Wix support. Hijacking a forum thread isn't going to help you.
@Yisrael (Wix) I'm upset. It's a disaster. Nothing is working. I can't even debug, because in development site it's working. I open a ticket and they asked me to send screenshots. I did it, but I than noticed that there are so many others problems. I hope they will fallback to the older version ASAP.
Wix support is mostly useless and redirects to this forum!
Example of many failures of simple elements in Corvid:
Simple url link using GUI link or my own button and simple code, from one page in my domain to another page in my domain, both usable by "anyone," now fails with Corvid with a CORS error message - within the same domain!
Without screenshots or video, Wix support dismisses you with a form email requesting screenshots or video.
So I took the time for a detailed explanation of the issue with screenshots.
I have tinkered with Wix for years, never had to file a support ticket until last week.
I have filed about 10 tickets over the last week, all Wix Turbo or Corvid related, and of those only one reply was helpful.
Mostly, they don't even read it.
Support email for simple url link fail with Corvid:

(It appears that Wix is using bots to reply to the vast majorities of tickets).
I found that opening the requested page in a new tab avoids the CORS error for mundane links.
But that is a very sloppy work-around that is not an acceptable long term solution.
I noted that by refreshing with "F5" the page is working correctly. But it's not a solution because they need to refresh each page. I'm passing parameters from page to page and by refreshing the information is lost. Moreover, my users use mainly mobile and I'm not sure they know how to refresh in mobiles.
Maybe, I can force a refresh page, but I have no idea how to do it in JS.
Please provide me with your site URLs. I will ask that your sites have Turbo disabled. At least this way we can determine if the issues are Turbo or code related.
Hi Yisrael. I have 2 sites that worked properly with code until this weekend as well. I am experiencing the same issue now that the code doesn't load until you refresh the page and then everything works properly. the code elements are simply not being loaded anymore unless you refresh. This wasn't an issue before friday or such. I called support and they said they will look into it but they also referred me to look into the forum. Thank You
@Sammy Gindi I can request to have your sites added to the "no-Turbo" list if you wish.
@Yisrael (Wix) please do my site is : www.nadlomat.com
Hey guys! I pushed this up the chain to the smart guys at Wix. Colin (one of the Wix smart guys) just informed me about 15 minutes ago that the "blank page refresh to display" problem has been fixed. I tried this myself on one of my sites and it seems all good. Give it a spin and let me know.
Hi Yisrael. I just checked my both my sites on mobile and desktop and the issue is still there, the item is still not loading until I refresh. specifically the inventory bar found on this page https://www.gindiauto.com/car-competitions It worked fine until the weekend thanks.
The site works better, but I still can't see always the Login bar in my home page. I have no idea if the fix you are talking about restabilzed somehow the site or if the clearing all caches did the work.
When clearing all browser history, the Login bar is displayed. But after few surfing, the Login bar disappear again.
I'm kucky that the login is shown when a user enter a restricted member page.
But, I can't still rely on the system and I will need to perform a deep testing because, I can't request my user to refresh pages or clear browser several times during a session.
Hi Yisrael, So my site gindilife.com is working now thank you. however gindiauto.com still does not work and the error I am getting is this [Log] Error: The Stores/Products collection does not exist. You cannot work with a collection using the Data API before it is created in the Editor.
My store product collection certainly does exist so I am not sure why It isn't finding it. however if i reload it recognizes the store. Thanks!
- Most of the weirdness and random errors, subsided or are gone.
- Some noticeable speed improvements.
- Pages refresh code and new elements automatically (pages, but not lightboxes though).
- Lightboxes with code are still a mess and non-functional.
