Wix Editor: Managing Your Page Settings

5 min read
Get extra control of your Wix site by using Page Settings. This is the engine-room of your website; allowing you to decide how site visitors and search engines view your pages. 
From Page Settings, you can manage your Search Engine Optimization (SEO), allow VIPs access to your private pages, control Social Share settings for your social media accounts...and much more.
Your Page Settings are organized under several tabs. Learn what you can do under each tab below.

Page Info tab

Manage your page's general settings from the Page Info tab. You can choose a different name for your page, make it your homepage and manage how frequently this page should be cached

What's cache rendering?
Caching helps speed up your page's loading time. We recommend keeping the automatic caching for your site's homepage and about page, but not for pages that include widgets (e.g., Store Shopping Cart, Bookings Widget). Learn More

Layouts tab

Change the header & footer layout for a specific page. Occasionally, you may want to alter this layout for a page that is still under construction, displaying a single image or other reasons.
To remove the header and footer from a specific page, click No Header & Footer in the Layouts tab.
Your site menu will deactivate along with any other apps you otherwise keep in the Header & Footer on other pages. You will, therefore, need to add a navigation link back to your homepage.

Permissions tab

Create a private page to share with only those who want to see it. Apply permissions by giving your page password protection. Alternatively, add pages to a Members Only area for your VIPs or paying customers.  You can also create member roles and restrict certain pages to specific roles.
