Graphic Designer & Website Designer Tips

As a website designer and graphic designer, I love sharing great tips and tools that make designing easier.

Wix Designer Tip: Add Same Page Twice to a Wix Menu

Wix Designer Tip: If you want to add a page to a Wix website menu more than once, you can't link to it using the link feature in the Page menu add-ons because pages already used in menu won't show up as a selection. To work around this, just use the "Link" to link to a website address instead and choose "current window" for it to open into. You'll need to copy and paste the full URL of the page to do this, so you'll need to visit the live site to copy that URL. I use this if a client wants to have a Page in the main Menu, but also list it in a drop down menu – so the page has two ways to get to it. Wix won't let you put a page more than once in the menu, so you can use the Website Address l

Wix Review - 2018

I am amazed that advertising agencies, marketing people, SEO companies, and other large businesses still doubt that Wix is a professional website solution. With all the more widely-known platforms such as Wordpress, Squarespace, MoPro and others, often times people in these businesses – especially ad agencies – turn their nose up at Wix. I've been asked recently by several clients: "Why don't people like Wix?" My answer is that Wix in the past had a bad reputation for SEO and Mobile viewing. You see, when Wix first started, it used to be a Flash-based platform, which was NOT good for SEO or Mobile. Flash-based websites also became obsolete due to Mobile Smart Phones taking over a huge par

Easy Privacy Policy Generator for GDPR Compliance

On May 25th 2018, a new European Union privacy regulation—known as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)—will come into effect. The aim is to protect the personal data of all EU citizens. Whatever the location of your business, if you own a website with EU visitors, you will want to make sure your website is GDPR compliant. To meet GDPR requirements, make sure to create a privacy policy, letting visitors know how your site processes and uses visitors' data—including information on cookies and other tracking technologies. As a Denver Website Designer, adding a Privacy Policy on websites is part of the design process. Having a Privacy Policy on your website is an important but often

Wix Blog Facebook Share Image – how to get it to work!

Want to know how to setup your Wix Blog Facebook Share Image? One of the common questions I get as a Wix Website Designer is "How come when I post links to my blog posts from my Wix website, Facebook doesn't show an image?" When sharing Wix website blog posts on Facebook, often times the image doesn’t show up right away on new posts as Facebook hasn’t scraped the information from the page yet. To fix this, you can use the Facebook Sharing Debugger to “scrape” the link until the image appears: developers.facebook.com/tools/debug IMPORTANT THING TO NOTE: Image Posts are Better than Link Posts! I also believe that if you upload an image and have the link as part of the image's post text rathe
