Customizing Desktop vs. Mobile-Only Elements

The ways you can customize an element on mobile depend on its source:
  • Desktop elements: Elements you added to the desktop view automatically appear on your mobile view as well.
  • Mobile-only elements: Elements (e.g., text, images, buttons) that are optimized for mobile and don't appear on your desktop view. You can add them directly from the Add panel.

The available customization options for desktop elements vary based on the specific element. 
From the Mobile Tools panel , you can add features that increase engagement and make  navigation easier on mobile. Add a welcome screen, a Quick Action bar or a Back to Top button at the bottom of long pages.

Designing Text for Mobile

When designing text for your mobile view, the customization options differ based on the element's source. 

Text Added from Desktop

If the text box was originally added on desktop, you can adjust its size, formatting and alignment for your mobile needs. 
To change the actual text, head over to the desktop Editor. 

Mobile-Only Text

Mobile-only text is fully customizable. You have all the same options available for desktop – edit the text, change the design and even get text ideas for some inspiration.

Adjusting Images for Mobile

When adjusting images for your mobile view, the customization options differ based on where the image was added from – desktop or mobile. 

Image Added from Desktop

When adding an image on your desktop view, you can make some adjustments so the image fits mobile screens better. You can resize or crop the image, add animation and control the image behavior (e.g., a link opens when clicked).  

Mobile-Only Image

When adding an image from the mobile Add panel, you have the same customization options as in desktop. 
You can control the image behaviors, crop it, or adjust it using the Wix Photo Studio. You can also add animation and a link to mobile-only images. 

Designing Your Mobile Menu

Design every aspect of your mobile menu, from the menu icon to the menu box and menu items, without affecting your desktop version. You can change the colors, the text, the background and add more elements to make it your own. Learn More
