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,

    Once you guys add a 'built in comment system' that will make my life MUCH easier, I suggest you guys partner with Disqus.  Disqus is the king of commenting.

    Wish I could get rid of the "Read More" button in the blog which makes no sense for a video post or a short entry. Thanks.

      Unfortunately this isn't possible at the moment. You can change the text to be empty and change the button color to black so it will not be visible.

      To change the button text simply click on your blog > Settings. To change the button color, click on it > Button style > Edit style > Change the background color and the background mouseover color.

    I know it's been said a million times before me, but I agree that being able to add multiple photos to a blog is an absolute MUST. I've started blogging about DIY projects and it's a little difficult to share all the steps with people without images, and I can only use one... 

    Had I realized I could not use more than one picture per blog before I signed up for Wix, I would have decided to go with another service. I love my template and I've had a great experience otherwise, but this is kind of a dealbreaker. 

    You say you're working on it, which is great. I just hope you resolve this sooner rather than later.

    Hi,

    So the blog feature has been available for close to 6 months now but still no news on the possibility to add multiple photos to our blog entries? That is by far the most basic capability of any blog interface so if you are not going to have some sort of eta for us, I think a lot of people are going to start leaving Wix. It is a big joke in fact that you have prioritized Blog Templates instead of multiple photos because which fashion/food/travel blog (as per your available templates) only posts 1 photo per entry? And I'm guessing we will have to wait another 6 months or more to get 'categories', import functions and comments available. I'm sure I'm speaking for a lot of Wix users (esp photographers) when I say this - the Wix blog is making the whole blogging process very unenjoyable for me. The huge blown up image for every post that is not easily editable just makes things worse.

    Adding a Picture to Text Blog

    Hello,

    I see that over a year ago someone asked how to add pictures to text blogs. I would image this has been updated. How can I add pictures to my text blogs?

    Thank you.

      Mr. Chewbacca, that was not the question, and you know that. As other people have mentioned in frustration, there does not appear to be a way to add a photo to a TEXT blog. I've worked as an editor for a SEO agency for many years, and we both know that TEXT blogs with PICTURES get more clicks.

      I have tried using PHOTO posts with text, but once you open the box, the photo turns small and becomes unaligned. If you have a suggestion for this, I'm open to it.

      I will conclude by stating this fact: even xanga, good old xanga, had the option to add a photo to a text blog. And that was over 10 years ago. And yes, I do see apps for blogs and yes, I do see that you have a "wishlist". But let's be honest with ourselves: Wix is behind the times in terms of blogging. And considering that the SEO/website/marketing trend is CONTENT, you bet this TEXT blog+image issue needs to be fixed, and immediately. I would like to think, Chewbacca, that you had the bravery to send this reply to your boss. Really, it's for the betterment of Wix, and by default, you, me, and your customers.

    Blog question

    I have picked out a template that I like, but I don't see option for doing a blog with it! I really like the template so is there a way I can add the option of a blog with it. See below pic for the Templar I have chosen:

      Hi eimsfarrell,

       

      The blog feature needs to be added to the template manually.  Please see this page for instruction.

    I think it would be great to prioritize a content importing feature, which would ease migrating to your platform.  A win for you and a win for us.  Import via some standard spec or specs, whether a prescribed format for csv, or via RSS.

    Also, I think most would assume that the Blog content would come with an RSS feed out of the box.  Syndicating content, particularly blog content, is pretty much an after-thought in most CMS'.

    I've only just started tinkering with WIX and LOVE what I see so far.  I'm trying to pull a site from Dreamhost and rebuild it here, and being able to import content would make things a HECK of a lot easier!  Any idea when we might see the import piece in a release?

    Thanks for your thoughts.
