Yes! You can use your Wordpress blog with Wix by connecting your blog to a subdomain (ex: blog.yourdomain.com). For information about connecting your blog to a subdomain, please visit the Wordpress page here and follow the instructions.

 

If you would like to add a blog directly to your Wix site, you can use the Wix Blog!

We also have two blog apps available for you to use: Tumblr Feed and Blogger Feed. You can find these apps in the Wix App Market.

    We don't have a ready example, however you can Google for "Wordpress" and "Wix" and you're bound to stumble upon someone who's done it

    Wordpress domain with Wix

    I created a blog years ago on wordpress.com and bought a domain to go with it.

    I now want to transfer that domain name to the wix site I have created. How do I go about doing this? Do I need to get it hosted by another group (GoDaddy, etc?)

    Thanks!

    @James 

     

    If you wish to point your domain only to your WP blog,  meaning your Wix website won't be accessible via http://www.jamesolmos.com/, you'll need to ask WordPress an IP to add A records to, because Wix doesn't support changing name servers. 

     

    If you wish to just  "blog.jamesolmos.com"  to point to your blog, just add a CNAME record with the word "blog" and the address of you blog. You can find very step by step instructions on the Nicole's best reply.

    WordPress support said . . . "you have configured your domain incorrectly at your domain registrar so that it is pointed at the IP address of one of our nameservers. You need to reconfigure it so that it has it's nameservers setup to be our nameservers.

    Currently the nameservers for jamesolmos.net are set to ns1.wix.com. and ns2.wix.com. these need to be set to NS1.WORDPRESS.COM, NS2.WORDPRESS.COM, and NS3.WORDPRESS.COM"

    Can Wix offer me support on how to configure its nameserver to point to the WordPress nameserver?  Is this even possible?

    Thank you ~

    Point my domain to my WordPress blog

     

    I purchased my domain jamesolmos.net from Wix.  I want to point this domain to my WordPress blog acousticenergy.wordpress.com

    I followed the directions at http://en.support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/map-existing-domain/ and added my domain to WordPress.  Unfortunately, Wix keeps pointing to WordPress.com and not to my WordPress blog. So, I can't even view my blog because every time I type my personal domain jamesolmos.net or acousticenergy.wordpress.com - both open WordPress.com

    I updated my domain's server to the following CNAME and I made sure to remove the A(host) servers (Wix won't let me add the same CNAME and A host anyways.)

    NS1.WORDPRESS.COM
    NS2.WORDPRESS.COM
    NS3.WORDPRESS.COM

    What am I doing wrong and how can I point my domain to my WordPress blog?

    Thanks ~
