How to Link Pages in Wix

Creating a website can be an exciting adventure but understanding the basics of linking pages may be a bit of a challenge for those with limited technical knowledge.

Linking your Wix pages properly is essential for providing your visitors with an optimal online experience and improving your visibility to search engines.

So, let’s dive into the details and find out how to link pages in Wix.

Wix is one of the most popular website-building platforms today, offering a range of tools to create stunning websites without ever writing a line of code.

Its intuitive drag-and-drop editor makes it easy for anyone to create beautiful and highly functional websites in no time.

Once you have set up your Wix pages, you’ll need to understand how to link them together so that visitors can easily navigate your website.

Setting up Wix Pages

Before we look at how to link pages in Wix, it’s important to understand how you set up all the different types of pages on the platform. There are three main types of pages in Wix: static, dynamic, and external ones.

  • Static: These are usually informational-type pages like ‘About Us’ or ‘Services’ that don’t change very often.
  • Dynamic: These are typically the product or content-based pages like ‘Blog Posts’ or ‘Shop Products’ that are regularly updated.
  • External: These are third-party websites (eCommerce stores, booking system etc.) that can be integrated into your Wix site through an iframe or redirect link.

Once you have decided which type of page you want for each piece of content, you can start creating them in the editor by following these simple instructions:

  • Select Add from the left-hand sidebar and choose either Page (for static ones) or App (for dynamic/external ones).
  • Enter a title for your page/app and click Add Page/App button at the bottom right corner.
  • Start editing the page/app by dragging elements from the left-hand sidebar into its canvas area, customizing its design, and adding content until it looks just as you wanted it to!

Now that we know how to add pages/apps on our site, let’s move on to learning how to link them together on different parts of our website!

Linking Pages On Wix

As previously mentioned, linking your pages properly is key for giving visitors an optimal navigation experience as well as boosting your presence in search engines so it’s important not to forget about this essential step!

You can easily link any two static/dynamic/external pages together either internally (on any other page within your site) or externally (on another domain). Let’s take a look at how each one works:

Adding An Internal Link

Internal links are used when you want visitors to jump from one page within your website directly onto another one with just one click!

This is especially useful when adding call-to-action buttons anywhere across your website as they help send visitors directly towards areas where they can perform certain actions like purchasing products or contact support etc. Here’s how you do it:

  • Open any existing static/dynamic page on which you want internal links added and enter its editing mode by either clicking the Edit Page button from its bottom right corner or double-clicking its canvas area if already on edit mode already.
  • Drag an ‘Add Link’ element onto its canvas area and customize it according to what action do you want users to perform by clicking on it (e.g Change text/font size & color etc.). Then enter an URL address pointing towards any other existing page within the same domain as a current path in order for internal links to work correctly! Alternatively, simply enter # followed by the ID name that corresponds with the targeted destination’s name if both exist within the same domain (see troubleshooting section).
  • Once everything looks just right preview & save changes before moving on to the next steps and repeat the process until all desired internal links have been set up throughout the site!

Adding An External Link

External links are used when sending visitors away from the current domain towards another external one with just a single click!

Even though the same principles apply when setting up internal links steps might vary slightly depending on the type of external link being added depending on the external source web application supports certain redirect protocols via iframes.

Below few basic examples that show these differences between sources more clearly:

  • Links from youtube videos: drag an element > select Youtube > paste video URL > adjust settings according to preference > Done!
  • Links from storefront: drag an element > select Storefront > paste URL > Done!
  • Links from third-party apps: create an iframe and paste the app URL into its properties > adjust the iframe using the size and position attributes according to preference > Done!

Troubleshooting Links

When troubleshooting both internal & external links few common issues tend to arise due to incorrect URLs entered form happening mistakenly during the setup phase but these are usually quickly solved following the procedures below:

  • Ensure that URLs entered for internal links contain all domain info including IP address & port number if necessary otherwise won’t work correctly!
  • Make sure to use valid protocols whenever setting up external iframes such as HTTP or HTTPS depending on target destination support otherwise site will crash!
  • Always take ideal time to double-check check all entered values meet requirements before saving changes as doing otherwise might lead to problems afterward troubles can be quite difficult to fix!


Having properly linked all our web pages together is key to providing our visitors with seamless navigation experiences across the entire website while also helping search engines index each individual site correctly. This help boost rankings among competitors out there so definitely pay attention to details step whenever involved in such processes future!
