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,

    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!

      Unfortunately an RSS feed for the blog is not available at the moment.

      You can vote for this feature in this thread.

    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.

    I am using the new blog feature and so far I love it! The only issue that I am having is that when I add a photo post, when that blog is clicked...the image comes up HUGE in the blog. How do I regulate the size of the image in the blog?

      Hi,

      We're glad to hear that you enjoy your blog! At the moment the only way is to upload a smaller image (This also makes more sense when it comes to loading speed), however improving this feature's accessibility is on our development roadmap and more control over your blog visibility will be added in the future!

      Hi,

      Unfortunately you currently can't. You can however add a Tumblr Feed and Blogger Feed to your site, and both of these platforms support RSS feed.
