Instructions on managing your web site.

Editing Your Site

When you fist login to Wix, you will arrive on the dashboard. To edit your site, click on the Site Actions button and choose the Edit Site option. This will load the homepage of your site in edit mode. You can navigate to other pages on your site using the Page drop down option in the toolbar at the top of the page.

 

Wix uses an intuitive what-you-see-is-what-you-get style editor which makes updating content easy. In many cases, to update text, simply double click on the text you wish to update and make your changes. The new text added in will inherit the style of the text around it to match.

 

If you need to make changes to the text (such as to make certain words bold or underlined), you may do so using the Text Settings flyout that appears when you edit text.

Working with Galleries

All images for your portfolio are displayed using the Gallery feature within Wix. This feature allows you to organize different sets of images under a single theme with the ability to easily add new galleries in the future.

To add new images to an existing gallery, navigate to the portfolio page in which you wish to work on using the Page drop down option in the toolbar at the top of the page. With the page loaded, click on the actual gallery and click the Manage Media button when it appears:  

Saving and Publishing

Wix allows you to either save your work to come back to it later or publish it to go live to the rest of the world. When you are done updating your site, either click the Publish button to make it live on the site immediately or the Save button to come back to it later.

From here you'll be able to add new images to the gallery or change the order of existing images. To add new images, click on the Add Media button and choose Image from the drop down. 

  • To select an already uploaded image, double click on the Portfolio Pieces folder, select an image, and click the Add to Page button. Once you have added a new image to the gallery, you can update the Title or Description that is displayed for that individual image.

  • To add a completely new image to the portfolio, double click on the Portfolio Pieces folder and then click on the Upload Media button. You can either drag and drop the file or find it on your computer by clicking the Upload from Computer button. After the image has been uploaded, click the Add to Page button. Once you have added a new image to the gallery, you can update the Title or Description that is displayed for that individual image.

Once you are done adding new images to your portfolio or updating the order, click on the Done button.
