Hello GaiaOnline Cummunity,
Over half a decade ago throughout Gaia's Profile Discussion Forum, I had noticed a great deal of people asking if Wix could be used with Gaia. At the time it was seemingly impossible since Gaia uses Cascading Style Sheets (CSS for short) rather than a websites most common programming language, HTML. Since I had previous experience using Wix beforehand, I set out with my knowledge in programming languages to shed some light on the topic, and with a little help, I was able to successfully hand convert the HTML Embed Code that Wix provided, which made it usable with Gaia's existing Media Panel. With so many people interested in using Wix, I decided to create the very first guide to using Wix as a GaiaOnline profile, which you can view below. Unknowing at the time, I would be helping out thousands of users, I was very happy that my guide could be so helpful to this community.
Soon after my guide took off, I founded the Official Wix Profile Guild, which I still run today. I founded the Guild so that everyone could express their creative side using Wix with other members of the community that were also using Wix. Ideally, we also used the guild to keep the community updated with current tip and tricks and various tutorials and new guides.
For the last couple of years I had to take hiatus to attend to important real life stuff that extremely limited my spare time. My good friend, assistant, and fellow Guild Staff Member, Horntastic continued on my work during my absence and continued to update the guides and tutorials.
So much has changed with Wix and how it's works over the last couple of years that you can no longer use my method of hand converting the embed code as demonstrated in my guide. I am leaving the guide here however as a visual demonstration on how much things have changed.
Don't be fret however, as mentioned above, Horntastic created a new and updated guide while in my absence that you can use to continue using Wix with Gaia. You can view this guide here: [X]
Although I am no longer running and updating my guide, I would like to thank everyone who supported me and helped me along the way. I will still be helping those who still want to use Wix and continue to answer any questions the community might have. Feel free to join the Guild or send me a PM anytime for help or questions.
