How to Change Wix Template?

For those looking to create a website, Wix is one of the leading platforms out there. It allows users to design, create and manage their own websites with ease.

One of the best features it offers is a wide selection of custom templates that allow you to get up and running quickly.

This post will show you how to change your Wix template and customize it to suit your needs.

Steps to Change the Template

Changing a Wix template can be done in a few simple steps:

  • Logging in to your account and selecting your template
  • Customizing your template with the Wix Editor
  • Saving published changes
  • Previewing and editing mobile view of the template
  • Updating SEO settings for your site
  • Adding apps to templates

Step 1 – Logging Into Your Account And Selecting Your Template

The first step in changing your Wix template is logging into your account. Once logged in, navigate to the ‘Template’ section at the top of the page. Here you will see all the available templates for you to choose from. Select a suitable one for you, then click ‘Edit with this Template’. This will take you to the Wix Editor!

Step 2 – Customizing Your Template With The Wix Editor

Once inside the Wix Editor, click any element on your website template that you want to change or customize. Make any adjustments or replacements that you like, such as colors, fonts, images etc.

When making changes don’t forget to save them by clicking ‘Save’ at the top right hand corner of the editor.

Step 3 – Saving Published Changes

When all changes are made and saved, click ‘Publish’ on the top right side of the editor window. This will activate all saved changes for visitors who land on your page when it is live on a web browser. If there are any changes that need further testing before going live on a web browser, click ‘Preview & Test’ instead before publishing them live!

Step 4 – Previewing And Editing Mobile View Of Template

After making changes in the desktop mode of your website, make sure they appear correctly when viewed from mobile devices too by clicking ‘Desktop/Mobile Mode’ button located at the top right part of the editor window menu bar.

Edit or adjust anything that needs fixing when viewed from a mobile device and save all modifications by clicking ‘Save’ once again!

Step 5 – Updating SEO Settings For Your Site

For any website created using the Wix platform, it is important not only to make sure its content looks great but also to optimize it for search engines (SEO) too so people can find it easily without needing directions from Google Maps!

To do so go into the SEO Settings tab from the sidebar menu located at the left side of the editor window by clicking the cog icon in the same sidebar menu and update SEO information as needed for pages & posts as well as templates too!

Step 6 – Adding Apps To Templates

Finally, add apps such as newsletter signup forms or contact forms through the App Market link located at the bottom left corner of the editor window menu bar under their respective sections such as the Contact Forms tab.

Then add desired form elements & configure each section according to the user’s needs then add relevant styling-related info & press the save button visible after each new form element creation process respectively… Voila!!!

That’s how simple it is to add new elements & styling info through the app market feature available within each new or existing Wix site/template!!!!

Despite being quite a straightforward process even novice-level users shouldn’t have many problems creating beautiful sites within the Wix platform explained above!


Changing a Wix template is a straightforward process that doesn’t require a lot of technical expertise. By following the steps outlined in this post, you can easily customize your template to your own needs.

From logging in and selecting the template to preview, updating SEO settings and adding apps, the process is straightforward and user-friendly. So, go ahead and get creative with your site design on Wix!
