The blog application allows you to:

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.

      Hi,

      Unfortunately, we currently don't have an ETA for that. We're constantly working to add new features according to users' demand.

    was just curious if its possible to add images into the post itself rather than just the one off to the side - when i write i typically have a series of photos i like to add with a little description underneath but right now i'm not seeing the best way to input these photos.

     

    thanks,

      Hi,

      This is one of our upcoming features, at the moment it isn't possible to do it with the Wix blog.

    Hi there,

    At the moment, the unique URLs for single blog posts do not work.  All unique URLs when opened in a new browser send the user to the last post that has been published, and not to the corresponding blog post.

    This is disastrous for our company reputation. Any idea on when this will be fixed?

    Thanks

    @jilusa thanks! Its not the ideal solution though especially if you have dozens or even hundreds of posts. :D

      Unfortunately, as jilusa suggested, the only option is to manually remove the tag in each post.

      We document and learn from every feature request and bug brought to our attention. These objectives are immediately high priority milestones in Wix's product road map.

      Feel free to add your feature request to our Wish List by posting here.

    @coolio12 try deleting the tag from all blog posts where you used it. That worked for me.

  • Coolio12

    A quick question.

    Is there a way to delete/edit existing tags? I know you can create new ones but is there a way to delete ones that have already been created? I can't seem to find a way to do this...

    Thanks for any help.

      Hello,

       

      Unfortunately you cannot edit your Wix site's HTML code, so you cannot remove tags.

       

      Feel free to add your feature request to our Wish List by posting here.

      Hi Yoav,

      I think you misunderstood me, I am referring to the tags on blog posts not html tags. See picture

    I'd love to see Wix add an RSS feed Subscription button availability to blogs, this way people can subscribe, substantially increasing the traffic flow.  PLEASE!!  :)  

    Thanks!

    So it's been something like 4 or 5 months since you launched the Wix Blog.  Hands down, without question, the #1 most requested feature for the blog tool has been the ability to add multiple images.  


    According to all you folks at Wix, you prioritize your roadmap based on feature requests.  Given five months of ongoing requests for this feature, it's clear that this would be #1 on your Wix blog roadmap.  If you go back and read this thread from August onward, your reps have consistently said this was the case and led us all to believe that multiple images would be coming "very soon."  (Wix loves the phrase "very soon" -- it keeps customers onboard yet commits the company to nothing.)


    It's almost 2014 and there's been absolutely no movement on this feature.   It does not take five months to develop a feature like this.  It doesn't take one month.  The obvious conclusion is that if it's being worked on at all, it's on a back burner.  Here's the truth, guys: WIX LAUNCHED A NEW TOOL AND DID NOT ALLOCATE ANY DEVELOPERS TO SUPPORT IT.  Which is totally par for course for Wix.  These guys have demonstrated over and over again that they don't know how to manage a large-scale software development project.  They release big features... and then drop the ball on supporting them.  Instead putting energy into other big new features that attract new customers.
     

    (Look back through this history of this thread.  SO many people have felt angry at the way Wix handles their customers -- making promises, giving assurances, being super positive (We're Wix!  We love you guys!) -- and then failing to follow through.   The company's pattern is so obvious at this point that it's shame on us for sticking around.  Like many companies, Wix customer service people are trained to talk in a way that's always upbeat and reassuring, which makes us FEEL like the features we need are right around the corner.  But unlike other companies, Wix doesn't deliver.  (Well, they deliver at 75%, and then stop.)   Notice, in the history of this thread, how many of these angry people ultimately gave up and disappeared from the thread.  That's Wix losing customers before your eyes.


    Wix, you've already lost me as a customer -- I realized months ago how full of donkey doo you guys are.  I've hired a developer to take me back to Wordpress and there is no chance in seven hells that I will renew my subscription to your service.  If anyone out there is on the fence about this company, I would encourage you to follow me and abandon ship.  I'd also encourage you to spread the word to your friend.


    Wix customer service: whether you are lying to us about your priorities, or someone is lying to you, or whether your bosses changed their minds, or whether you just all don't get it, doesn't matter anymore.  It really doesn.  Sorry this didn't work out.  I'll be sorry to lose the neat GUI tools you offer, but Wordpress will ultimately provide the stable, customizable, reliable website setup that I need.


    Everyone else: trust your gut and abandon this product.

    The Wix blog since its been made public is full of limitations.. first we could not have multiple images, so i got my way around it to have video posts.. But now i realise that it can only embed youtube videos. I want to use Wistia videos in my video posts.. So again am stuck and have to move back to wordpress.

      Hi,

      I'm sorry that the Wix blog can't currently support all your requirements. I hope that in the future the blog's capabilities will better suit your needs and you'll be able to use it to its fullest.
