Keeping websites current is the best way to get found and to keep people coming back to your website.

Can JotForm send Form Submissions via Text to cellphones?

Yes, you can JotForm send Form Submissions via SMS / text to cellphones. My favorite form builder tool is Jotform, it's a great form builder with lots of customizability. It's also great as you can send texts to your phone everytime your JotForm form is submitted. Here is a list of how you can email a text to cellphones using JotForm Forms by using a simple email address with the number – the only caveat is that different cell phone providers have different emails, so you need to test and use the one for your carrier. Call your carrier (and let me know!) if these don't work. T-Mobile Format: 10-digit cell phone number @ t-mobile.net Example: 3335551111@t-mobile.net Verizon Wire

Embed Instagram on Website - Free Widget

This is a third party widget tool that lets you customize everything in an Instagram feed to place on your website, no matter what platform you use. In Wix, you can use the HTML widget for this if you don't like Wix's out-of-the-box Instagram feed. You can even set it up so that it only pulls images marked with a specific hashtag, so you can have a lot of fun with it for embedding topical instagram feeds on your website. instawidget.net/generate

Wix Designer Tip: Does the Wix Editor work on Microsoft Surface Go?

Does the Wix Editor work on Microsoft Surface Go? The short answer is Yes! The Wix Website Editor works fine in the Chrome Browser on Microsoft Surface Go tablet computers. The Long Answer is still Yes: But I had to switch the Surface to Windows 10 Home from the S Mode, in order to install Chrome which runs the Wix Editor better. Microsoft's default browser, Edge, takes an exceptionally long time to load the editor, so it doesn't seem ideal. I also had to install updates to speed up the overall system, as it was very slow out of the box. Here's the full story and directions if you buy a Microsoft Surface Go and you wan to use it with the Wix Editor: When I first turned on my Microsoft Su

Why Wix is a Good Choice

I've been a website designer for over 15 years, and I've been a Wix Designer for over five years, and I really do love Wix – I think it's a great platform for Website Designers as it's so easy to use, you can design right into the working webpages instead of designing first in Photoshop and then rebuilding it – so that's a huge bonus. It also doesn't require a lot of coding, which saves time and let's me offer website design to my clients at a lower cost. It's also easy to make design adjustments, so design changes are less costly. Most importantly, I offer Wix training to my clients on how to use their Wix designed website, so they can make most or all of their ongoing edits and updates on

Wix Expert

Wix just released these new Wix Official Expert Badges to us Wix Experts to use. I love being a Wix Expert because Wix is my favorite platform. I can easily design beautiful, functional websites that are easy to use, easy to edit, have great SEO features, and my clients love it! I've designed hundreds of Wix sites over the years, and while I do work in other platforms such as Wordpress and Shopify, hands down my favorite platform to work in is Wix. That's because it's so easy to design right in the platform, and you don't have to make design compromises or spend hours coding something and realizing you don't even like the look of it or it doesn't work right. Wix allows me to offer better, ea

#1 SEO Hero

How do I know that Wix is good at SEO? Because my Wix-built SEO Hero website has climbed to the #1 spot on Google! Last year in March 2017, Wix announced a contest with a $50,000 prize for anyone who could get to the top of Google for the keywords "SEO Hero." I jumped at this opportunity to test out the Wix platform for SEO, as the Contest leveled the SEO playing field. The contest required that any website entered into the contest would need to be a brand-new website. Websites needed to be under a new registered domain, so they could not be an existing website. There were also a lot of other rules that forbid various cheating link-building techniques, and there was a judge to determine

Tab Through Elements in Wix - Wix Fast Key

Here's a Wix Pro Designer Tip: If you are in the Wix Editor, and you're looking for an element that's hidden or behind other objects and you can't find it, here's the easy key command or fast key to quickly tab through each element on your page. This is also very useful for finding mobile elements. Use Wix Keyboard Shortcut: Command-M on Mac (Control-M on PC) This will select items and as you continue to hit Command-M it will tab or "pan" through the various elements in your mobile or desktop layout in the Wix Editor.

Web Archive Tool

I had a Website Design client who discontinued their website as they're retiring, but they wanted to keep a backup of it for sentimental value to look at down the road. Unfortunately, they had already cancelled their Wordpress website on GoDaddy's hosting, so the site was already gone and could no longer be viewed. But, we found out about this great tool that shows you archived versions of websites. It's not a fool-proof tool, but you can take screenshots of pages if desired, or print PDFs, or copy and paste text or pull images as needed from the archived versions of the website. Check out this handy tool at: web.archive.org Just enter in the URL, then click on any highlighted date in the ca
