How to Make Any Wix Website More Responsive
Full Width Elements
Wix offers full width elements that stretch and expand to any screen size. Please make sure to stay within the gridlines of each element. This will help different display sizes adapt to the content on a website. Wix has an explanation of gridlines here.
The Stretch Function
First, lets take a look at the stretch function allows certain elements to stretch to the full width of a screen. Not every element can be stretched, but as long as users see the icon shown above, that element is able to stretch to the full width of the screen. Below we will show some common elements that are able to be stretched and used to make any Wix website more responsive.
Strips and Columns
Strips and columns are fully customizable and various elements can be added. As long as the desired elements stay within the gridlines, identical content formatting will be shown on any screen size.
Slideshows can incorporate various elements other then just photos. Slideshows look great on any page! Personally, we love to use them on the homepage or a landing page. Learn more about slideshows here.
Additionally, Galleries are a great option for displaying a collection of photos that are fully responsive. Please note that users can click the “stretch” icon to make the galleries full-width. Learn more about galleries here.
Horizontal Responsive Menu
Lastly, a responsive menu is essential for mobile users. Having a menu that works well on both a computer and cell phone will provide a pleasant browsing experience for all types of website traffic. Learn more about responsive menus here.
These elements will help make any Wix website more responsive to any screen size. Please let us know if you have any questions.
