WordPress or WIX, both are great and combatively both are lots of popular among web makers. It depends on personal requirement and mindset on choosing any one of them for future web prospectus. However I have seen, including myself, that many people or developers use both of them for different kind of websites and it’s requirements.
EVERYONE KNOWS DIFFERENCE OF THESE TWO AND NOTHING MORE LEFT TO COMPARE ANYMORE, SO HERE I WILL JUST DESCRIBE SOMETHING IN BRIEF ONLY AND WILL KEEP ON UPDATING THIS PAGER IN FUTURE
The WordPress Theme Directory, by contrast, contains thousands of free themes for users to pick from. And a number of dedicated theme stores – like Template Monster or Theme Fuse – have popped up over the years selling premium themes, further increasing the number of templates available to WordPress users.
It’s probably fair to say that Wix templates are a bit easier to customize than WordPress themes, due to Wix’s drag-and-drop website builder. That said, modifying a WordPress theme shouldn’t involve a steep learning curve – especially in the case of premium themes.
Performance on mobileWix claims that your site will “automatically look amazing on any device”— which strictly speaking, isn’t entirely true. This is because platform uses absolute positioning, meaning that web elements are positioned by pixel rather than relative to the user’s screen; so depending on how much you tweak your template design, or the sort of content you put on your site, your Wix website won’t always adapt automatically to devices with different screen sizes (i.e. it won’t be fully responsive).
This is disappointing and goes against best web design practice; and it goes against Google’s advice for creating a search-friendly mobile site too. In practice however, all the Wix templates provide you with a version of your site that will display nicely on mobiles without you having to do much; and Google is on record as saying that Wix websites ‘work fine’ in search. And the company is making continuous efforts to improve the performance of their sites on mobile devices.
A new version of Wix — Editor X — has recently been made available in BETA mode, and this does let you create fully responsive websites. As for WordPress, finding a fully responsive theme isn’t difficult at all — so in the area of mobile-friendliness, WordPress is the clear winner.
Customization options :
The customization options available to you with WordPress depend entirely on the theme you’re using. Premium WordPress themes tend to have extensive customization options, allowing you to extensively tweak the layout of your website. With free WordPress themes however, you are usually limited to making fairly minor modifications (e.g. to typefaces, text color, button color). In terms of typefaces, many WordPress themes come with a lot of web fonts built in. Alternatively, you can install your own fonts using a plugin, or by editing your site’s CSS (the code that determines your website’s visual appearance).
And speaking of CSS, the built-in WordPress customizer makes it very easy to add your own CSS to your site. As for Wix, the built-in Wix Editor makes it very straightforward to edit and customize templates. You simply click on the web element you’d like to customize and click the Change Design button to see the different design options available to you.
Wix provides around 100 different web fonts to choose from out of the box, and gives you the option to upload your own fonts directly via the Wix Editor too.
Security of themes :
One thing to watch out for with WordPress themes is security — some contain badly-written or even deliberately malicious code that can compromise the security of your website. To avoid encountering problems in this area, make sure you always source your theme from a reputable source. (The WordPress Theme Directory is a good place to look, because all the templates included in it are tested by a theme review team before being included).By contrast, because Wix’s templates are built in-house, you don’t have to worry about security issues at all when you install one.
Switching templates :
A key disadvantage of using Wix is that once you build a site on the platform using a particular template, you’re stuck with it — Wix doesn’t allow you to apply a different template to an existing site. So, in order to apply a new Wix template, you effectively have to build your site all over again. This is not at all ideal and contrasts very negatively with WordPress, which doesn’t restrict your ability to apply a different template to your site content at all.
