    i want my wordpress blog to be embedded on a PAGE of my Wix site - and still be able to have all the functionality of the blog within the page - meaning I can send links to different posts and categories within that blog - I have it set up now as a blank page and added a HTML window - so the blog opens in the site - but it is only acting as a whole page - so can I point the blog to a specific page in my wix site???

    I am not understanding the subdomain info that I copied below from the site

     

     

    Frequently asked Questions
    Will this be a link to my wordpress blog or will the blog be embedded on a page of my Wix site?
    Just like when you enter www.domainexample.com to view your Wix website, you will be able to enter blog.wixdomain.com to view your wordpress blog.
    These are two different web pages on two different servers, the only connection is that they use the same domain name but with different sub domains.

You can send your users to specific pages of your site by deep linking.

You will have automatic deep links for Master Pages, Pages, expanded pictures and expanded products.
In order to create the link for Pages and Master Pages (e.g. www.wix.com/about) you will need to change the names of your Master Pages and Pages in the Page Manager.
Please note that the hashbang symbols (#!) in the URL are part of the deep linking mechanism and cannot be removed or altered. This symbol is used for sites that utilize AJAX and is for better visibility within google. You can read more here .
You can find more information about deep linking here .

    Is it accurate to say that you cannot display a Wordpress blog on a page within WIX and also that you cannot have the blog page as a menu item either?  We do not want to start the blog over since we have years of history. WIX is a great platform but what a huge downfall not being able to connect with existing wordpress blogs.

      Hello,

       

      You can host your Wordpress blog on an external server and embed it in an HTML page bu using the HTML App - it's a work-around, but it should work if you plan on doing it.

       

      Please view the attached information regarding the HTML App:

       

      With the HTML App you can test and add your own HTML code to your Wix site.

      For more information check out the tutorial below, or you can click  here.
       


      *Take a minute to read through the  Known Issues & Limitations of the HTML iFrame/Embed App via the link above before using this.

       

       

      Let us know if you need any additional help!

    Any chance of a Blog for HTML 5 sites coming soon? It is really a huge downfall of using Wix right now that I cannot use this valuable too to bring traffic to my site.

    Still no news on embedding our wordpress blogs into our wix sites? I would really love this feature! If not, can you clarify when we will be able to do so? I want to stay with wix, but its so important for us to have our blogs connected with our websites....

    thewordofed,

     

    If you are using an HTML5 template then it is not possible to add a Wix blog to it at this time.
