Why is your Wix Dropdown Menu Dropping Up?

As a Wix Designer, I sometimes run into little Wix behaviors that I can't figure out. In the above image, my Wix dropdown menu is dropping "up" instead of down, like dropdown menus usually do. I couldn't for the life of me figure out why, until I got a little help from my friends in the Wix Design Experts group on Facebook. At first I thought it was a bug or some odd setting I set unknowingly – but as Avi pointed out – it's not a bug – Wix menus will automatically detect if the menu is above the 50% height of the page, and, if lower than 50%, the submenu will drop up. If the menu is above the 50% height it will drop down like a normal dropdown menu. So there you have it! In the above screens

Wix added more 301 Redirects!

Wix used to have just fifty 301 redirects, but the Wix wizards recently increased the limit for 301 redirects to 200! What are 301 redirects? They are simply a redirect that tells search engines and browsers to redirect page URLs to their new page URLs (if the page URLs have changed on the new website). These are most often used when launching a new website in place of an older website – whenever I design new websites for my clients, as a Wix Designer, I always setup 301 redirects for all of the webpages to point to the new coordinating webpages so that Google, other search engines, any users who have bookmarked the page, and any third-party website or social media links will still work

Wix Blog

As a Wix Website Designer in Denver, I often have clients who have trouble with blog posts in Wix – they will post a blog in the Wix editor, but it is not showing up in their live blog.
