Switching from Wix Editor X to Wix Studio: What You Need to Know

Wix Studio Sample

In the ever-evolving world of web design, staying ahead of the curve is crucial. As a leading website-building platform, #Wix continually innovates to provide better tools and features for its users. In one recent advancement, Wix introduced Wix Studio, a more powerful and flexible design environment compared to Wix Editor X. If you're considering the switch, this guide will help you understand the benefits and steps involved. 

Understanding Wix Studio vs. Editor X

Wix Website Sample
  • Editor X was previously Wix's go-to platform for web designers and agencies. It offered advanced design capabilities and creative freedom without requiring the user to write little or no code. 

  • Wix Studio takes the capabilities of Editor X even further. It offers a more robust set of tools for developers and designers who need greater control over their projects. With enhanced features like custom code integration, AI assistance, and collaborative tools, Wix Studio allows you to easily handle multiple complex projects from a central workspace. This version of the Wix editor is designed for advanced users.

Key Advantages of Wix Studio

  • Advanced Customization: Wix Studio gives you the freedom to customize every aspect of your website. This includes the ability to add your own code and custom elements to make your site look and behave exactly the way you want. 

  • AI Tools: The Wix Studio Editor includes a host of AI features to make website creation faster and more efficient than ever. Some of these features include responsive AI, text and image generation, and AI code assistance. 

  • Project Management: Wix Studio provides a flexible digital workspace that allows web designers and agencies to manage multiple projects from a centralized hub. It also includes customer care tools so you can provide a seamless client experience from start to finish. 

  • Collaboration Tools: If you're working with a team, Wix Studio's collaboration features allow multiple designers and developers to work on the same project simultaneously. This streamlines the workflow and helps maintain consistency across your website.

  • Enhanced SEO: Wix continues to improve its SEO capabilities to boost its sites' visibility in search engines. Wix Studio includes its latest SEO tools so that you can optimize your site effectively. 

Making the Transition

Using Wix Studio

Now is the perfect time to switch to Wix Studio and take advantage of the new features and capabilities. 

There are three ways to get started using Wix Studio: 

  1. Sign up from the Wix Studio homepage. Simply visit and click "Start Creating."

  1. Switch from your Wix account. If you're already a Wix user, you'll see multiple calls to action inviting you to try Wix Studio, such as on your dashboard and account profile.

  1. Accept a Team invite. If you have been invited to join a Wix Studio team, you just need to accept the invite you received via email and sign in to start using Wix Studio. 

Managing Your Existing Sites on Wix Studio

You may be wondering what happens to your old sites once you switch to Wix Studio. The answer depends on which Wix platform you used to create the site. If you are an Editor X user, you can currently still access your old sites but can no longer create new sites on Editor X. Wix has created a migration tool to begin the update from Editor X sites to the Wix Studio Editor. However, other existing sites built on the regular Wix Editor will not migrate to the Studio Editor. You will be able to create new sites on Studio Editor and view, manage, and edit your old sites in Wix Studio. However, you cannot use the new Studio Editor design tools with existing sites unless you rebuild them using Studio Editor.
