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,

    Commenting system.

    An increasing amount of bloggers have started using Disqus which is an awesome commenting system. I realise that WIX did not create or test the iframe app, so even I use HTML code the user will have to scroll through many comments through the confined HTML widget area (it won't expand). I would love it if WIX would develop an app for Disqus (please not third-party app, only WIX) so users like myself would integrate it into their blog. I'm pretty you'll agree with me on this. Facebook commenting sucks, its poor quality and you have the same comments for all blog posts! Now that's ridiculous. Please fix this as soon as you can. 

     

    Thanks.

    Missing some important options

    I have been waiting for this blog app for ever. Thanks for adding it.

     

    -Please safe my life by fixing the limitation on how many posts per page, instead of 15. could you please make it 50 or more, or all post by same date! 15 posts are very little for businesses like press publications.

     

    -Can we create new categories? instead of the default 4 categories which are: 

    Photo
    Video
    Text
    Featured
    Add new category

     

    -Can the posts list widget have an option to show posts based on categories? instead of all the posts we have posted? so we can have more than on widget, our websites would look more organized.

     

    -Also, could you please provide a search in the settings for us to search for our previous posts to delete or edit them later?

     

    -It would be great to have an option to move the date under the post instead of people under the title left or right. That would make the post looking great!.. 

     

    Looking forward for this options to be added/fixed.

     

    Kindly

    Number of blog posts featured on home page.

    Only the ten most recent blog posts are being featured on my homepage. How can I increase this number?

    Thank you

    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!
