Building a WIX Website
Youtube video transcript (text may not be 100% accurate):
can be taking a look at how to create a site veal wix.com Keep in mind, you can click on the link video description down below if you’d like to follow along step by step while you’re creating your own site. And keep in mind that works is a wizard wig editor. It’s a What Do You See Is What You Get editor. And the main purpose of this video is to walk you through how to navigate the interface, how to use the tools I’m creating a sample site
I’m going to call the site foodie, just a food based site centered around food drinks, things of that nature. So the first thing you need to decide when you’re creating your site is what kind of website you want to create. Do you want to create a business profile Do you want to create a photography portfolio ecommerce store site for your restaurant, restaurant, front, a blog, what have you. And the great thing about works is they offer a ton of templates for you to choose from that and, you know, center around your category of website that you’re trying to create, or just kind of the style and design that should like and you want to kind of use as a cookie cutter template to go ahead and then from there, add your own elements and change it up to of course, fit your site. In this case, I’m just going to go with a blank template like a literally a blank canvas. That way, you can just kind of show you how a lot of the tools work and how to go about, you know, navigating the Wix interface here. So I’m gonna go ahead and click on Blank templates to use a start from scratch here, hit edit. And this is going to take me directly into the woods wicks editor here. So here we are in the works editor. And as I mentioned, we’re just using a very blank canvas page, create the site. And then I’m calling foodie, super simple, very visual site that I want to create here. And I have this kind of blank canvas to do that. But before I do that, let’s mention the main three elements.
When using Wix, the very top is your nav bar, this is where you go ahead and add pages to your website. So if you want to contact page and About Us page, what have you, you would add them through here, you simply click Add Page, decide what type of link you want to add, if you want to be a whole new page, if you wanted to be a link to your menu menu editor, if I clicked on page here, it’s you go ahead and create a whole new page. And I can call it for example about so now I’m on my about page or click on the homepage. And I switch to the homepage here. So whatever you have highlighted, that’s the current page that you’re editing. In this case, I have just a very simple about page, I’m going to delete this because I don’t want this I just want all on one page for the sample. Now on the right there you have your site settings. So this is how you save your site. And I recommend doing that as often as you can preview your site, publish it and more, you have a tool settings here, your help menu and your upgrade menu. Next to that you can actually zoom out of your site and get a preview of it and overview and reorder as well. So very useful.
Best Tips for Beginners
If you’re using a template, you can actually reorder the elements to your liking. And Undo and Redo button. So if you accidentally delete something, you can actually bring it back just using the undo button. And then lastly, you have the switch editor views. This allows you to switch views between mobile and desktop. Very, very useful, because nowadays sites tend to be, you know, viewed on different devices. And the great thing about works is it automatically makes it responsive so that your site works on whatever platform there is a tablet, phone or desktop. Alright, so that’s the main nav bar. The left here is how you add any basic elements are just basic elements to your site. And then you’re right toolbar. Here is how you adjust those specific elements Once added. So for example, here you have your background page background, you have your add elements. This is the main one you’re going to be using. When you’re creating a site. You can add any element from text, images, shapes, and social networking buttons, contact forms, and more under that you have a Wix app market. So this allows you to install third party apps, your site. So if you want like a chat functionality built into your site for support, you can add that it’s upload your own content. So if you want images, videos, music docs added to your site and uploaded you do that through here. And last but not least, if you want to set up a blog alongside your site, you can do that through the Wix blog functionality. Let’s go ahead and start by just making a very basic text header here. So I can go ahead and click text.
As you see here, there’s a ton of different options for texts here, I’m just going to go with the site title, because that’s what I want to add here. And now that I’ve created that tech element here, you can see my toolbar on the right here allows me to do certain things, I can duplicate it, I can delete it, change the alignment, change the size and position. So you can do all this manually. Or you can just kind of click and drag. So I can just like this, just click drag, adjust the size as I want, or again, manually input the dimensions that I want that to be.
If I just double click on this, I now I’m going to be able to control the site title here. So I’m going to go ahead and highlight that and just type in fruity, because that’s what I want to call site here. highlighted again, to change the font here to like a size 70 font. And we’re going to go ahead and bold that. And then now I’m just going to drag it up here, because this is where I want. This is my headers. I’m attaching it to my header right now. So that imaginary line right here is essentially your header. And then down below here is your footer. So those are the basic grids. And from there, let’s go ahead and start adding on other elements. So I’ll click on again, I’m going to go ahead and just click on the Add button here, like I mentioned earlier, and looks like actually dropped in some text here. So no problem. Click on it deleted. Go back here. And let’s go ahead and drop in a strip here I want to strip so I’m going to go ahead and use a classic black strip here to kind of focus the main part of the content that I want viewed. Click on and again. And let’s go ahead and go through here and see what we have different options that we can add here we can add a menu. So if you want a basic like nav bar menu, you can add that but again, I’m going for just a very minimal Look here.
I decided I want to add a gallery. So I’m going to go ahead and go here and see what gallery options they offer here looks like there’s a ton of different galleries that you can choose from here. So I’m going to just go with a basic slideshow, God or ears. And you click on that, I think that would look go to the strip here that we added. So I’m going to go ahead and drop right here. Attach it to the strip so it fits in nicely. And then just again, go ahead and resize it to my liking here. So just going to go ahead and adjust it there. I’m going to pull it farther there as we get bigger stretch there. Same thing on that side. And then just again, kind of fix the world and have it there. Now ahead and re enable that toolbar. And just like that, I’ve added my basic gallery now underneath that gallery and add a couple more elements.
Wix Example Website
Let me just go ahead and drop in a couple more things here just to showcase what it would look like if I filled it out just a bit more. So as you can see, I decided to add this box element to this site here. What I want to do is create three of them. So I’m gonna go ahead and line it right here. And rather than having to manually drop three of the elements, I’m just going to click on this and activate my toolbar. So I can see this here and duplicate the element across. I’m just gonna click on duplicate, duplicate, and duplicate again. And now I have three boxes rather than having to again add multiple elements here with the exact same dimensions easily added to the site here. And then now I’ve added the three container boxes here. And all I’m going to do from here is simply add some text on top of that. So let me go ahead and take a basic text later here. And then drop those over the boxes here. So I’ll just say let’s go with a small heading here. And then I’m gonna go ahead and disperse those across the street.
Alright, so I’ve now added those three basic buttons here. And I want to add Lastly, contact form down below. And then you go ahead and fill out that slideshow up top. So I’m just gonna go ahead and click on Add again and find that contact element I want to add in here, click on that and then go ahead and click on it. And then it’ll be dragged in to my site here. And then you go ahead and just as needed.
So now that we have in the that contact format, and I’m going to go ahead and add some more images here. To make it visual. I’m going to fill the slideshow and decided that I like these boxes. But I’m going to actually just replace them with images because it looks much more visual and appealing. And that’s a great thing about wicks, you can easily just adjust elements of the site individually without ruining the rest of it here. So let’s go ahead and add in all these images with the slideshows or galleries for example, you can go ahead and just upload your own images or use a source of Wix is pre set stock images that they have for multiple categories. So I’m going to do here is I’m going to go ahead and delete all of these that are currently in the default gallery here. And then go ahead and replace them with food images. Now that I’ve had them as at the gallery, I can add captions or even have links to them as I like. And the hit done here. And all the images are now added to my slide show up here. And I’m going to go ahead and add India other ones as well.
So as you can see, I found a much better element to replace those three boxes within text more visual, we have another smaller slideshow right underneath. And that’s a great thing again, about wakes, you have so many different options to play around with and re design depending on how and where you want certain elements to be on your webpage.
Another thing I wanted to showcase your wall, I decided to keep the site more minimal. And just focus on the homepage, you can of course Adam menu to add multiple pages, which is typically standard with most sites. So have like a homepage, maybe an about page what have you, I decided to for the contact page on the home here. But as you can see here, they offer different menus of horizontal and usually have all sorts of great styles that you can go ahead and check out. So for example, if I just want to add this very common one here, I can add a themed menu. So I’ll just go ahead and click on this one right here. And what this is going to do, it’s going to go ahead and drop the menu element here on my site here. Now I’m just gonna go ahead and drag it up wherever I want to put it. So
Let’s say want to put it up here, attach it to the header. And I’m just going to go ahead and move this site logo just a little bit above that. So let me go ahead and address that here. So it sits just right on top of that, I can go ahead and even reduce the size of this just a little bit as I can kind of have put down and then from there, it’s going to pull from the pages that you have currently set up on your site. So right now just one home and you here. But for example, if I was to go into pages here and add a page. So we’ll go ahead and add a page here you can see automatically So for example, if I had an about page here and I did another page let’s go ahead and say you know, common other pages might be blog or something of that nature. And as you can see, just like that, going back to the homepage, now we have those three pages set up at the top there. So it pulls from the pages that you have set up on your site. Very easy, very simple.
There’s tons of different designs that you can choose from as far as your menu items color goes. So it’s all up to you. Now if I click on preview here, just like that, we now have a complete site super visual. Here we have our pages at the top but I can navigate here I have my slideshow that I set up a half vote drink menu that I set up here super visual, super nice. We have that contact form. And as you can see here, I also decided to drop in a line just to separate the footer there. So I’ve kind of have a close to the site. But just like that in a couple minutes, we were able to create a pretty decent site super visual, very minimal however, of course for your site. It’s going to vary whatever it is, whether it’s a business of photography portfolio, maybe it’s more tech space, what have you. That’s a great thing about once you have the freedom to create whatever you want. And at the end of the day, it’s that simple and easy to criticize the Wix. com
