Hi all,

We'd like to provide an update of our Blog status and plan.
 

We have been getting many good feature requests, and we've collected all suggestions and are working on a revamped version of the blog, to handle many of these requests.

We have already started this process but as it is a significant change, it's taking longer than we'd hope.
 

We are aware of the fact that our users need some of the features immediately, but we will work hard to make it worth the wait.
 

We thank you for your patience and appreciate all of the feedback you provided in the last few months.

 

To read about our feature updates, please click here.

Thanks, Nicole,

      Hello,

       

      Unfortunately it is not supported at the moment, You can keep up to date with what features are coming soon here.

       

      Best regards

      Yeah that's great and all, but for a paid service the blog shouldn't feel like a fragile display case. You can't interact with the main page at all.

    I wish you could add more than one pictures. Its frustrating to show only one picture.

    I wonder why they even have a community forum like this.  Crowdsourced feature/product enhancement requirements gathering is a wonderful thing...when you acknowledge the crowd.  Otherwise, it's just a platform for unhappy users to grouse.

    I've been with Wix for almost 3 years and changes are slow to none.

    As a blogger who recently switched to wix, it is obvious that wix is not suited to blogging--though I wish it was because it has such nice website features. If wix is not planning on upgrading the blogging feature you seriously need to tell us NOW so we can move on. WHAT ARE YOUR PLANS FOR THE BLOGGING FUTURE?!

    Hang on - someone from WIX actually replied to something on this?

    Nicole from Wix - thank you for bothering to post a reply to some of these.

    However I think it's fair to say we are all about to leave in our droves because we cannot get any USEFUL feedback.

    Blogging is critical and I think I'm probably not alone in seriously considering writing reviews to warn other people how truly awful the Wix blogging capability is. Certainly I will not be recommending a friend anytime soon.

    WE NEED YOU TO GIVE US A TIMELINE. I am CITO of a software development firm myself and can tell you this is simply not acceptable.

    You have seen the list of features we need. It is patently obvious which ones are most important. We are definitely not interested in "masonry view" we are interested in getting photos in, navigation, follows etc. 

    WHEN WILL THESE BE RELEASED? ARE YOU EVEN WORKING ON THIS?

    If not, tell us NOW so we can stop wasting our time and move providers sooner rather than later.

    NICOLE - please escalate this within your group. It's critical.

      Also if you could take off that "Best Reply" post about the masonry view that would be good. It's rubbing salt in the wound every time we see it. Nobody is interested.

    "I am about to start writing daily and already fear the page will freeze without being able to set how many blog posts appear per page. Here are my suggestions:

    - GIVES US THE ABILITY TO SET HOW MANY BLOG POSTS APPEAR PER PAGE.

    NUMBERED PAGES SHOULD APPEAR (JUST LIKE HERE) ONCE YOU HIT A CERTAIN NUMBER OF POSTS. 

    - GIVE US THE ABILITY TO ADD MORE THAN 1 PHOTO PER BLOG POST

    - GIVE READERS THE ABILITY TO SUBSCRIBE "

     

    This times roughly a million. I *need* a better blog app. As I've voted for in other threads, also the ability to post via email (like Tumblr and other such blog sites allow) would be great.

      Numbered pages should appear on the bottom*

    Can this work with other blogs as far as options go? If so is there a way a to get photos to appear from other blogs?

      Oops thought I was replying to a support email. Now reading the post I see everyone is waiting on the very function I just asked about.

      It appears that overall support is a little lacking ... unless you have 2,000 thousand bucks to drop every couple of weeks.

      Hi lounge1506,
       

      Thanks for your feedback. We are working on improving the blog and adding many more features to it

      Thanks, Nicole,

    Please stop "Thanking" us for our patience for continuing to wait for the multiple image functionality in the Blog module.  We are NOT waiting patiently.

    It has been months since we first were told that the feature was being developed.  No ETA has been established.  I think I can speak for the majority when I say that we are tired of waiting.  We don't want to be thanked.  We want to see results.

    The idea that you developed the Blog feature in this way is almost impossible to fathom.  You have a great platform but you have hamstrung our ability to get our message out to our clients by messing up the blog so badly.

    Answer one question, "Why is there no ETA?"
