You can create a Wix blog for an existing Wix site by opening the Blog editor from your Wix site editor.


To do so, go into your Wix editor, roll over Blog from the toolbar on the left and click My Blog. From the Create new blog window that opens, choose a template and click Apply this template.

    Hi Wix people,

    Can you please advise when to find the BLOG button in the editor? I can't find it. 

    Please do take a screenshot to explain. Thanks. 

    And please do not just repeat this reply: 

    "This is because you are working in the HTML Editor. Only the Flash Editor has the Wix Blog option at the moment, you can see you are posting in the Flash Forum.

    For a blog in HTML, add a Tumblr  or Blogger feed to the site. Premium users can connect a Wordpress blog as a subdomain."

    At least explain what do you mean by working in HTML editor, not a Flash editor? What is a flash editor? My website is created through wix. Is it a HTML editor or flash editor?

      Hi,

      Wix has two platforms it works with - Flash and HTML5. Our first, and older editor is the Flash editor.

      The new editor, launched in 2012, is the HTML5 editor, which you are using.

      The Blog feature has been recently introduced to the HTML5 editor, and is still in testing, you can find out more about how to add it to your site now right here.

       

      Best regards

      Thank you! First let me say that I am very happy that you have got the blog option available! And I know that it will be soon as great as your website building side! So thank you for all your hard work! :) 

      OK, I'll use the English version buttons at the moment but please make a fully customisable blog as well, so that ALL texts are customisable! :)

      1. Also, please help regarding the image size in the post. There was a topic about it earlier that the images show too large in the actual post page. And the answer was- "As a workaround, you can upload your image enclosed in a letterboxed canvas". Not sure I understand please explain. (I tried to resize the image but in the post it still looks too large and now it's blurry.)

      2. How can I change the background colour of my blog?

      3. When I go to add&edit page and click on the post I want to edit, then the background colour in the typing area is dark grey (in blog preview the colour is dark yellow and is related to my previous question). But it would be good if typing in the text the background would be just white. Is it possible?

      4. And the tag cloud. Will you be making this a customisable as well? At the moment there is only 1 way it can be used and it is a cloud (ie mixed up) but I would like a list. :) 

      Thank you!

      Hi,

      Thank you for submitting these awesome feature requests.

      Some of these already have answers:

      2. To change the background of your blog boxes simply select one and select box style-> edit style, now change the background and border colors of your blog boxes:

      Hi! :)

      Thanks! 

      2. I'm very happy with my boxes! :) I referred to the "singe post" background colour. At the moment it is dark yellow and it is hard to read.

      1. Regarding the images size in a singe post? Can I change it somehow, the image is too large at the moment

      - How can I delete some "tags" I've created?

      - I created a blog post and in the editor it looks great. When I press preview then some paragraphs are smaller than they should be. Any advise what to do with these?

      Please help! I want (need actually :D) to make my blog public, so your help is more than appreciated! :) 

      Thank you!

      Changing the image sizes in posts individually is currently not possible.

      As a workaround, you can place the image inside a canvas that has the same background color as your posts.

      Regarding tags, it is as simple as adding it in the first place:

      Edit your posts, and alter the tags.

       

      Regarding preview vs. edit in terms of paragraph text size, I have attempted recreating the issue you've described, but unsuccessfully so.

      If the issue persists, please provide us with a detailed outline of the steps you have taken until this point, so we may replicate the process from our end in finding a solution.

      -Where do you see it on your site, i.e. what page?
      -What component in the editor is causing the problem (i.e. text box)?

      *Please include screen shots, if possible.

      Thank you for your cooperation and we await your reply.

    I am trying to figure out blogging situation. So if I get wordpress blog as a subdomain to my wix site how much is that feature going to cost? And do I get the blog with wordpress.com or wordpress.org.??? Or is either one fine?

    • Nat

      You can use your Wordpress blog with Wix by connecting your blog to a subdomain (ex: blog.yourdomain.com). For information about connecting your blog to a subdomain, please visit the Wordpress page  here  and follow the instructions. This doesn't cost you anything.

      Please don't hesitate to contact us again. Nat

      This is the info at the link you provided:

      Mapping a subdomain with the Domain Mapping Upgrade costs $13.00 per subdomain, per blog, per year. So not sure what you are reffering to when saying this doesn't cost you anything. Please clarify.

      Also I am not sure what this means -- WordPress.com automatically removes the “www” from all URLs. Mapping the “www” subdomain is not supported. Also, we do not currently allow mapping to subdirectories, such as example.com/blog.

      Does it mean "www" will be removed from my entire site or just the blog?

      Hi,

       

      As your question refers to Wordpress policy and procedures, you will need to ask them about it in order to receive an accurate solution.

      Hey sandraedwardsnch,

       

      This is because you are working in the HTML Editor. The Wix Blog option is available only for our Flash editor at the moment.

      For a blog in HTML, you can add a  Tumblr  or  Blogger feed to the site. Premium users can connect a Wordpress blog as a subdomain.

       

      Please note a Wix blog for HTML5 sites will be released very soon. 

      For more information click here.

       

      Thanks,
