To add a blog: From the left side of the Editor, click the Add icon > click Blog.


Check out our learning center page for more information and instructions.

 

The blog application allows you to:

- add a blog to your Wix site

- add various kinds of posts to your blog: video, image and text

- improve your site's SEO by regularly adding new content to your site

- share your blog and posts on social networks.
 

**New**: We have a brand new Blog category on the Templates page!
The templates are divided into 3 categories: Business, Personal and Reviews.

 

Here are some features we are still working on:
 

- Adding multiple media items (several images, videos paragraphs) to one post (instead of only 1 image + text / 1 video + text / text that we have now).

- Preview option when editing posts in the editor.

- Built in comment system.

- Importing data from other blog platforms.
 

You can follow this thread for suggestions and updates about new blog features.

 

We also have several blog apps in the Wix App Market that you can use! You can add a  Tumblr Feed  and  Blogger Feed  to your site. Also check out the Easy SEO Blog.  Click here for more information about adding apps to your site.

Thanks, Nicole,

    PLEASE! Someone help me. I am losing my mind. I have read and reread all of the posts and instructions about How to Add A Post to the Blog. NOTHING has worked. I couldn't get a second post to publish, so I copied the first post, and tied it like that. Now, I have both the old and new posts in my Featured List (only when I open the Blog Editor), only the new post in my Drafts List, but only the intial post from a month ago on my Editor page. Of course, only the old post shows up when I Preview and when I Publish to the web. I am losing it, and getting very angry, Help, please.

      Hi,

      Thank you for contacting the Wix Support Team.

       

      I have visited your site's editor and identified the cause for this issue.

       

      The post that have tried to add was "Set as draft post", which prevented it from being published.

       

      Please un-check that option, save the changes and the blog post should appear in the published posts view.

       

      I hope this helps. Let us know should you require any further assistance.

      Rotem, Wix Support Team

      I want to make the "Single Post" page visible on the website. It currently is set somewhere to be hidden and cannot find the option to make it visible again.

      I also want to be able to change the name from "Single Post" to something else. The basic page settings do not appear, only the SEO options appear.

    Is there a way to change the font color of a blog menu? (i.e. the archive, recent posts, features posts, etc. options). I can only change the color of the title of these subsections but not the color of the options below.

      Hi,

      Please note, you can simply go to the "Single post" page, and click on Add -> Media -> SoundCloud Audio.

       

      Also note that the audio file will be visible across all the posts.

       

      Unfortunately, at the moment, its not possible to add a different SoundCloud widget per post.

    Hi There! 

    My blog Archive is off by one month. What I mean is, posts the were published in August show up in the Archive as published in July. Posts published in July show up in the Archive as published in June. So on and so forth. Any advice on how to fix this? (See my blog here.) Thanks in advance!

      Hi Danya,

      Thank you for contacting us.

       

      I have visited you blog and cross referenced the creation date of a few blog feeds with the blog archive and did not find any difference.

      Just making sure, you are referring to the blog archive and not to the blog itself correct?

      What windows are you operating? Please make sure the date on your computer is correct.

      If the problem still persists please provide us with a screen shot of the problem. For instructions on how to take a screenshot, please use this link.

       

      To upload the screenshot, simply click on the "Upload" button and follow the steps.
       

       

      I hope this information proves useful to you.

      We are awaiting your reply.

      Thanks, Sheer - Wix team

      Hello! Thank you for your quick response! Maybe I haven't explained myself properly so I took some screen shots, per your instructions.

       

      If you look at the following screen shot you can see my "Archive" list on the right column. In bold you'll see "July 2014 (1)" as this is the link I clicked on. Thus, the blog posts displayed should be posts from July 2014. (Please scroll down.)

       

      However, if you'll take a look at this next screen shot of the blog results, you'll notice that the blogs it displays are actually from August 2014. (Please scroll down.)

       

      If I were to click on "June 2014 (5)" I should expect to see June posts, however, only July posts are displayed. This is what I meant when I said my blog Archive is off by one month. Please advise. (PS I am using Safari).

    I have several bloggers on my web site. Because on the restriction to one blog, I have built them into individual blank pages. Ideally, I would like to utilise the template or similar. Do you have any suggestions please? The web site is www.themud.co.nz 

    Thanks in advance.

      Hi Mike,

      We understand that you wish to have multiple blogs on your site and you are looking for a template for that.

      Unfortunately there is no such template, as only one Wix blog can be present on a site.

      If that is not your question, please explain yourself so we can try and help you.
