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,

    I have been trying to use feedburner to submit my blog to directories. Some of my favorite directories is networked blogs that will only accept a feed url. Feedburner says they  can't find a feed on my blog and that it only looks like a website.

    Also my page loads very slowly as well. I have removed a few elements hoping it would help. It doesn't thoughts?

      Also I find it funny that Wix allows apps to display outside blogs on your site like tumblr and blogger (the app is lined out horribly) but doesn't have an interior feed that can be burned into RSS so we can put our blog out there. This would also help SEO

      Hi Jenny,

      We are working on the RSS feature that will create this feed you are talking about.

      feel free to follow this thread - http://www.wix.com/support/forum/html5/editor/blog/how-do-i-find-the-rss-feed-4008811 to get noticed when it's ready.

    Is there an option to allow people to sign up to follow our blog through email? I currently have my blog with wordpress.com and link out to it, but would really love to have it all located in one space, especially since that would help my SEO.

    For a long time tried to find out how to add multiple pictures to my blog post… I already have a blog, but want to renew it with WIX… I would want to use it as soon as possible! Can anyone let me know where it will be available and when exactly? And how many pictures could I put in one blogpost? 

     

    Kind regards, 

     

    Zoë.

    Are there anybody listening to the customers?

    The Blog app is absolutely ridiculous, poorly designed, only 15 post per page, are you kidding? And why only one photo per post? Why? A great blog is the least you should provide to your customers to move from Blogger and WordPress.

     

    I have been requesting for 2 years to fix the limitation on the HTML or provide a good blogger app so we don't have to use the crappy HTML which you're smothering us with the limitation only 5000 pixels. at-least make it double the pixels or auto flexible option. Unfortunately no body listened. And when you call the customer service to complained about the limitation, they have such an attitude.

     

    All my websites from Wix are very slow loading on windows computers and nightmare on mobile devices, I wish I did not move from webs.com

     

    Are there any supervisors to check all the complaints about the blog app and the HTML etc...? 

     

    Somebody get moving, we are paying for this crap service.

    Ass an artist using WIX to showcase my artwork there a few things I would like to see added the blog features of Wix. 

    1. Pagination on plog post permalink pages

    2. When viewer clicks image on blog post It would be great to get a Lightbox/ enlarged view of the high-rez image. 

    3. Most importantly I would really love to post more than one image on a blog post. This is a ridiculously basic feature. I remember being able to do this with Geocities blogs in the 90's and I didn't have to pay to use Geocities. Get to work Fools!

    Blog takes a few seconds to load and displays a really unappealing grey background as it loads up. This also happens to other widgets I have on my website, I overcame the problem for other widgets (not the blog/blog elements) by adding an animation to each of them so they can load smoothly. Please fix this issue - very important, users wouldn't want to see this.

    The details are under: How can I add a blog to my Wix site?

    So if you paste this into the Search Box at the top of this page, you might have some luck...

    I feel like an idiot as I cannot find where/how to add a blog? There is no "blog" option under my add option only blog elements and there is no add blog there either. Please let me know what steps I need to follow to add a new blog to my site.

      Hi Bakerjn0,

       

      Thank you for contacting the Wix support team!

      Unfortunately, it will not be possible to have multiple instances of the blogger app in your site.

      If you wish to add a one blog on your site please see How can I add a blog to my Wix site?

       

      We are here should anything remain unclear, we are happy to assist you. 

      Many thanks, Barrios

      Thank you for your reply Barrios. I do not want more than one app (only one page for blogs called Grow Tips)

      I do want to add more than one blog to my blog page? I do not know what I am doing wrong, i log in, click on the plus sign to add, however per your instructions I have NO blog option to add? I DO have a blog element option under my add menu.... however there is no add blog under that menu either?? I am desperately trying to figure out where/how to just add another blog post to my site?

    The single post page feature is fine. Keep it. It makes designing easy. Adding multiple videos and photos to a blog is a great idea too. Good to hear you are working on that. Please, however, as I mentioned earlier strongly consider support for team blogging.
