Bringing this to the top~
The old guide has gone a bit out of date and a lot of the same questions are being asked over and over.
This should help address many of them, including the HTML vs Flash issue and the converter link being broken.
I hope this guide helps some of you (:

I need some help. I am making my friend a profile and the size of it is a bit off. There is a large white bar of blank space going up the side of it. If you would help that would be wonderful.

This is happening because your profile is taller than it is wide, which doesn't size the same way as wider-than-tall profiles ):
If you can re-organize the Art (or add scroll) then make the profile's height the same as its width, the white should go away when you re-convert.

How would I go about change the width and height of it? Like in the code, and if so where would that be?

I fixed it. Thank you so much. This new thread is very helpful!

You have to do it within the Wix editor.
Open up the profile in the editor, then click the Settings button on the top bar (the one with Publish).
Change to the Appearance tab - on that page it should tell you the page dimensions.
You will have to uncheck the aspect ratio box to be able to change the height without affecting the width.
Changing this will change your embed a bit, so make sure to re-convert to get new CSS.

Hello, I recently edited my wix profile, wanting a change, but once I republished it, and went to check it on here, it still shows my old one. I've refreshed multiple times, and I've recoded it. Is there anything I'm missing, or doing wrong to just edit it? I really would like to avoid creating a whole new one.

I don't currently see a media box on your profile, but there is something funny in the background setting of the editor.
First, change your default theme to like clouds or the kiki one or something to clear up the background setting problem.
Then add a new media panel and paste your media code in there, and if it breaks again leave it up so I can try to find out what went wrong.
If the wrong Wix is displaying, also provide a link to the preview page on Wix and the embed code you converted.
(you can get to the preview page by going to the my account section of Wix then clicking the View button by the Edit button)

I currently see a sort of brown and gray page, is this the incorrect one?
Can you provide a link the the preview page of the profile you want to show, and your embed code?
(you can get to the preview page by going to the my account section of Wix then clicking the View button by the Edit button)
Also please note if the preview page is currently showing the updated version of your profile.


I hope that these issues aren't indicative of a larger problem, but will be looking into it as a possibility.

Updated the second post with new screenshots on how to get to the Flash-based templates to address the recent change.
