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 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.

    More Blog Support

    I use wix for blogging and would like to see more features to support that especially a way to get contributors to submit posts without needing to sign in through the normal way with access to the HTML 5 editor. I want them to have their own sign in with only access to adding/editing blog posts. Thanks!

    I would love to see the ability to have people be able to subscribe (e.g. ability to create a user id with an email address for example) to my wix blog so they can be emailed each time there is an update to the blog as well as be able to create an email list of those interested in our wix blog.

    Is there a way of listing the author for each specific blog post (apart from tagging the name), and perhaps of having an about the author section a la Wordpress

    Does WIX support team blogging - for multiple writers to contribute posts using their own names and individual login credentials.

    Im interested in making my page content wider. Is that just unsupported?

    • Kosta Wix Team

      Hey,

       

      Currently, the width of your site is fixed at 980px. This size was chosen in order to accommodate the largest number of internet users that will be visiting your site. This is common for the new generation of sites, as it ensures compatibility with the many different smart devices being used today (i.e. iPad users) where you only scroll up or down.

       

      You can exceed the gridlines and make your page wider, but keep in mind that everything outside of the gridlines will not be visible on some devices.

       

      Let us know if you have any further questions. 

      Kosta, Customer Solutions.

    I don't understand why adding a picture to the single post page adds the picture to ever page. I'm embarrassed I had a friend pay for a year of Wix and he's looking to go somewhere else because of the lack of blog features. This is not ok.

    Hi

    Can you give a time frame for the features you are working on? Also, if it is not possible for you to quickly/easily introduce the same blog functionality as WordPress offers, is it possible to incorporate a WordPress blog into a Wix website?

    Cheers

    LSG

      Hi Lucy,
       

      The biggest feature we are working on now is adding multiple images / videos to the blog which should be released very soon,
       

      We are also working on many other small features :)
       

      About your question about Wordpress, you can find a detailed answer here.
       

      Enjoy!

       

      Thanks, Nicole,
