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,

    Multiple blogs

    If multiple blogs can be added across different pages, it'd be great. I wish to have different blogs or segregated blog posts across different pages that caters for different purposes. Now it simply disallows me to add a blog if it has already been added to another page. Where can I vote for such a feature to be added?

      Hey,

       

      I have merged your query to the relevant Wishlist thread and we have counted your vote for this feature.

       

      Note: A workaround would be to hide your Blog page and display a Custom Feed instead.

      To hide your blog page: From the left side of the Editor, click the Pages icon > next to your Blog page, click the Settings wheel > in Settings and SEO, check the box next to Hide from menu > click Done.

       

      Next you will need to add a blank page for your Custom Feed.

      From Pages, click Add Page > add a Blank page > your Editor opens to the Blank page.

      From the left side of the Editor, click the Add icon > click Blog Elements > click Custom Feed.

      Click the Custom Feed > from the pop-up window, click Settings, under Filter Posts, choose the posts that you would like to display.

       

      Let us know if you need anything else.

      All the best, Dean - Wix Team

    I am very frustrated by the comments feature of the blog. It doesn't always show comments and it caps at 10 comments. AND in order to get full access to it (getting email notifications, etc), I have to pay a monthly fee. If I had known this was the case, I never would have chosen Wix. As a writer, I rely heavily on blog comments to interact with my readers. What are you doing to fix this issue? And when will comments be free, as they are on other sites/blogs?

    Hi! What I'm lacking on the Wix blog features are a comment section for each blog post that does not require loging in to social media ect. I would prefer being able to comment using a name only, or name and name of your blog / website too.

    Also, as a blogger, I love photography and would like to be able to post more than one pic per post. I know that you have gallery options, which I love, but I would also like to post multiple pics in my blog post feed. Thanks!

    Blog functionality - can you enable functions like WordPress has?

    I’m building a blog in my website using your templates and there's a lot it doesn't allow me to do. Could you not just add the same functionality as WordPress? For example I'd like to be able to:

    - add buttons for sharing via LinkedIn or via email

    - allow people to follow my blog directly from my website

    - be able to monitor comments. There seems to be an option either to show or hide all comments, but not to review comments before publishing them

    - add extra photos (currently only one per blog).

    a way to post outside of the wix.com editor. Either via email (as wordpress does) or via an outside portal. I don't want the same people who I want to post on my blog to be able to actually edit my site. This is very important and the next few site I am building i will have to build on another platform until this is a feature on wix. Thanks!!

    Being able to post photos in-line in a blog would be invaluable. Also, more than one photo being added and a built in comments section.

    Hello,

    I believe I was investigating the matter of having more than one image in a blog posting several months ago. Has this still not been rectified? I originally had my blog posts on Zenfolio, and finally moved them over to my site. As a photographer and blogger, it is essential that I have the ability to exhibit multiple photographs. After mysteriously losing all my previous blogs on my site, I've just attempted a new version. Could you tell me why when I preview (and view the published version), there are two additional versions of the same photograph beneath the featured image, and why they are cut off? I will leave my blog as it currently exists for you to view. Thanks for any assistance.

      Hey, 

      Please note that you have also added the posts galley at the bottom of your blog. You can click on it -> settings -> customize the number of the rows and the columns to fit all the images as you can see below:

       
      Please let us know should you require any further assistance.

      Thank you for your assistance. After some investigating, I was finally able
      to adjust the appearance. As for being able to publish more than one image per post, is that still not possible? I truly hope this has been fixed. Thanks for your assistance.

      Sincerely,

    Guys,

    Great site builder, and I'm sure that your success is resulting in a lot of feature requests.

    However, the blog feature is critical, and multiple images in a blog post is practically a minimum viable product feature for a blog site. Please try to make it happen in your next release (like next month).

    Thanks!
