Very Flashy Websites in WIX

Here is a simple "Wix" web site that I made for free at www.wix.com.
Click on the pictures to link to the subpages.
On each subpage there is a bottom right hand corner Home button.
This Home button gets you back to this start page at any time.

Free website - Wix.com

Here is a Link to the full size screen version of the web page at Wix:

The Wix homepage claims we can make free websites in Flash, and we can do it by using their editing tools totally for free – this sounded too good to be true !

Their website is at: http://www.wix.com/
(But as we discovered, it is all true, and it is all really good !) ☺

Here is a ten minute video about making a website in Wix.
This video is highly recommended viewing before starting on a Wix.

How to Create a Free Website- Wix Com

"How to Wix" is best explained by having plenty of "show and tell" screen captures, and this is exactly what you will find in the PDF document below.

Note that the PDF is around 18 pages long. It is also about 7meg in size (due to all of its screen capture pictures). So it might take a while to fully download to the browser screen.

Feel free to save your own copy of the document and share it with friends.

Here is a really well made Wix website by Renina Powell, from the Wix gallery of samples at:

Free website - Wix.com

It is difficult to read some of the writing on the site, so here is a Link to the full size web page at Wix: http://www.wix.com/tynshi/hypevisuals


Wix is much faster and easier to use than either Adobe Flash or Adobe Dreamweaver, and yet still produces very respectable web sites.

There are lots of great animations, clip art, backgrounds, buttons, slideshow templates, special effects, and pictures already supplied with Wix, and this makes it an absolute joy to use.

Best of all, Wix is free, and if we embed our Wix Flash website into another web page, there is virtually no advertising, and the “Wix” blends seamlessly into the web page or Blog.

So Why not Give Wix a Go.
Building a Free and Flashy website is definitely a lot of fun !
