Get Started with Wix Editor
When you create a new site, you can choose if you want to build it using Wix ADI (Artificial Design Intelligence) or Wix Editor.
ADI: Let Wix ADI Create a Website for You
Answer a few questions to get started! Wix ADI uses this information to automatically create a unique website for you by combining the best content and design elements. Once your site is ready, you can add your own images, customize the text, and more.
Editor: Get Started with One of Our Stunning Templates
Choose from one of our stunning templates and customize it the way you want. You can drag and drop elements such as text boxes, shapes, images and more.
In general, Wix Editor supports the following features which are not available under Wix ADI:
HTML code element
Embed a site element
Webmaster and Member login buttons
Wix Photo Albums
Apps from the App Market (Wix ADI only supports 4 apps: Wix Chat, Wix Blog, Wix Booking and Wix Stores)
(Note: Not all the above functions are available under the "Unlimited" plan subscribed by ITS.)
If you are looking for a more feature-rich website and a basic "canned" website may not fit your needs, Wix Editor is a good choice for you. It can deliver a more than "customized" website if you can spend more time in setting it up.
To use the Wix Editor, please familiarize yourself with the Wix Editor interface. Through this interface, you can design the header/body/footer, add new pages, manage the page menu, configure the website domain name, set SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and website statistic tool to boost the visiting frequency of a website. Convenient tools such as site history and duplicate site are available handily. The website can be further enriched by using Wix Code and Wix App Market.
