- If your website address is actually www.yourdomain.com, then please whitelist the following address www-yourdomain-com.filesusr.com
- Or if you address is actually yourdomain.wixsite.com, then please whitelist the following address yourdomain-wixsite-com.filesusr.com
- Additionally, don't forget to whitelist the static.filesusr.com address to see your calculator in the WIX Editor.
- Click on Embed Calculator.
- Copy your calculator’s code snippet.
Step 2 | Embed the snippet code to your WIX website:
- Sign in to your WIX account and open the WIX Editor.
- Click Add (+ icon) on the left side of the Editor.
- Click Embed.
- Click Embed a widget.
- Click the Enter Code button or double-click the added element.
- Paste your code snippet.
- Click the Apply button.
- The WIX element might be smaller in size than your calculator and therefore your calculator might look cropped. Use the Stretch Handle to lengthen the element or drag the stretch handles on the edge of the element to the size you need.
