Wix Sites

6 posts in this topic

Does anyone have experience with Wix sites? I have a new client and their website is hosted on Wix.

 

I'm not liking how I can't do whatever I want with it, it seems as though things are limited.

 

Does anyone know how to embed amazon s3 videos on Wix websites?

Found an answer to my own question with a bunch of playing around.

 

Here is the code I came up with in case anyone else was wondering.

Yeah, they just built their site before hiring me on too. I wish they hired me before building it because I would have recommended WordPress. Wix just isn't very versatile and seems to have a slow load time once you start adding things.

I was attempting to build one on Wix, but it's not what I want. I think I'm better off if me and my husband just hand-code one again ourselves (although it's been many years since we've done that, I'm sure it would come back to us), but I'm still a work in progress with a website.

Hi Danielle,

I just saw your post on the VANetworking form asking if anyone has had experience working on Wix websites.

Actually I have had experience.  Of the drag and drop website builders I have used including WordPress, Wix has come a long way over the last few years since March 2014 when you posted about Wix and I haven't had any trouble with it.  I have had compliments from others who have seen the websites I have designed and created in Wix.  Most of them can't tell whether it is a Wix website or a Wordpress website.  However, I am aware that most people aren't aware of the differences between Wordpress and Wix and some of the other website builders.  It seems like it's all cosmetic -- as long as they think the website looks good, had images and colours, and provides the information they are looking for, they seem to be happy.

I have also tried GoDaddy, eHost, Web, Hostway and some other different website builders which offer their own site builder and Wordpress as website building options.  Some of these are not very versatile with too many limitations.  Weebly and Squarespace are comparable with Wix.  All have their own pros and cons.  It depends on a person's preferences.

I am actually looking for a Wordpress specialist to join my team in my own VA business.  My business is My Essential Office Assistant.

I would be open to your feedback.  If you would like to partner with me or know someone who would be interested, please let me know.
