How to Edit Wix HTML Code

From small businesses to large corporations, Wix is a leading platform for creating stunning websites. With its easy-to-use drag-and-drop editor, even non-technical users can easily create a beautiful website in minutes.

While the basic building blocks are readily available to all users, some may find themselves wanting access to the underlying HTML code.

When editing HTML code on Wix, you can add custom scripts, tweak the design of a page, or customize the look of your site beyond what is available with the drag-and-drop editor.

In this blog post, we’ll discuss how to edit Wix HTML code, as well as the benefits of doing so.

Benefits of Editing Wix HTML Code

Editing HTML code enables you to customize your site beyond what is possible with the drag-and-drop editor. You can add custom scripts or CSS styles which can be used to enhance the functionality or design of your website.

Additionally, you have unrestricted access to every page’s HTML code which gives you more control over how your website looks and functions for visitors.

Steps To Edit Wix HTML Code

The process of editing Wix HTML code is fairly straightforward and can be done in a few simple steps:

Step 1: Access The HTML Code Editor

In order to edit the source code of your website on Wix, you will first need to access the HTML Code Editor. This can be done by clicking on ‘Settings’ from within the Editor view and then selecting ‘HTML’.

Step 2: Modify The HTML Code With The Visual Editor

Once you are in the editor view, you will see two columns side by side – one showing the visual representation of your site layout and one showing text boxes where you can write or modify existing line(s) of code.

If you know how to write in HTML/CSS then this should be quite easy as it uses standard components such as div tags and classes that most developers would recognize.

If not, there are several tutorials available online providing tips on how best to modify these elements accordingly.

Step 3: View Your Changes In Preview Mode

After making any changes with the visual editor it’s important to double-check that everything looks right before publishing your changes live online by entering preview mode.

This will show you exactly what your new page looks like before making it available for public consumption on your site – allowing for any necessary adjustments or corrections before going live!

Step 4: Publish Your Site When You’re Done

When all changes have been made/viewed in preview mode successfully, click ‘Publish’ at the top right-hand corner and select ‘Publish Site’ from either popup menu option presented.

This will make all changes visible publicly via their respective URLs provided (e.g., www.[yoursitename].com). This should take just a few minutes depending upon size of changes being made/published online!


By following these steps outlined above it is relatively straightforward for users both technical and non-technical alike to make modifications directly through their source codes with relative ease when using Wix HTML editing services – especially when looking into more advanced options such as adding custom scripts/stylesheets.
