Wix Editor: Hidden Elements in Your Mobile Editor
5 min read
Wix automatically creates a mobile-friendly version of your site using the content from your desktop site. In this process, elements that aren't optimized for mobile are automatically hidden (e.g., elements with hover interactions, third-party apps and more).
Additionally, you can hide any desktop elements that you don't want to display on mobile and unhide elements whenever needed.
- This article refers to desktop elements in the mobile Editor, not mobile-only elements.
- Any changes made to your mobile site do not affect your desktop site.
Learn how to:
Viewing hidden elements
Click the Hidden on Mobile on the left side of the mobile Editor to view your hidden elements. In this panel you can see elements that were automatically hidden, as well as elements that you choose to hide from your mobile site.
Hover over a hidden element to see how and where it would appear on the mobile site. This is useful when considering whether to show it or not on mobile.
Pinned elements from desktop may be hidden on your mobile site. You can find and unhide them from the Hidden on Mobile panel, but they are not pinned on your mobile site. Learn more
Hiding an element
You can hide any element from your mobile site. After hiding an element, it's automatically added to the Hidden on Mobile panel where you can access it at any time.
To hide an element:
- Click the element in the mobile Editor.
- Click the Hide Element icon .
You can also hide an element by pressing Delete on your keyboard.
Hiding desktop elements on your mobile site does not delete them. If you want to delete an element, you must do it from the desktop Editor. Learn more
Unhiding an element
You can always re-add hidden elements to your mobile site.
To show a hidden element:
- Click Hidden on Mobile on the left side of the mobile Editor.
