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,

    How can I change the color of the background of my blog posts? I want to make it just a white background, but it keeps coming in dark grey.

      Hi tindabox,

       

      We see you already set the background color of blog feed white, and the change is reflected on your live site. You can customize the style of each element within blog feed or component by clicking it and click 'Box style', 'Button style' and, etc. Then, click 'Edit style' of the style selected. 

       

      Thanks,

    I was so excited when I saw the blog as a feature. It is an integral part of many business sites to keep customers engaged and informed. However, this format lacks just about everything every other blogging site does. I can not put up a post with more then one image? I'm a wedding florist and want to post each wedding as one blog post with multiple pictures. Also i can't combine a text and picture post or copy and paste from a word document i wrote? There needs to be some serious work on this feature otherwise I will have to go to another provider that can offer me this.

    Coming into this a bit late - a couple questions

    1.  Can we actually publish this and make it live? or is this just test phase?

    2.  What is the difference bn Featured Posts and Recent posts? they seem to be the same

    3.  Why is there no option for "Most Popular" posts?

    4.  I have been using the "News list app" as a make-shift blog - is there an easy way to cut/paste all my articles into this blog app since it is the same format?

      Hey jen949,

       

      1. Of course you can publish your site! To do this, click the Publish button in your editor, on the top right corner.

      2. Featured posts will appear on your featured posts list; this is the place for important posts that you want your readers to see right when they visit your blog.

      3. You can add suggestions to the blog feature here.

      4. You can simply highlight the text to copy and paste it; unfortunately, there is no way to transfer content across different apps. 

       

      Thanks,

      Michal - Wix Team

    Does anyone notice that once they added the blog feature to their website everything has gotten much, much slower? My internet isn't the fastest but before it was always able to load the editor and my website fairly quickly. Now it takes forever to load, and some days I can't even get into the editor. The images I have are resized so that shouldn't be the reason. I know this is a test blog, but I really hope the real version addresses this!

    I agree and have the same exact question. That would only make sense, being as though that's one of the main components of a blog is to be able to initiate communication with the viewers of the blog...

    Under your 'explore' tab you are featuring a web site, http://www.britneyjeanine.com/ who appears to have a wix blog that features multiple pictures per post. Am I incorrect in thinking this? So two questions: If it is a WIX blog, how is she able to do that, and if it is not a WIX blog, what is it, because I would like to use that.

      Hi,

      This currently can't be done using the wix blog, what she had done is using a blogger that's designed very similarly to her Wix site. You can add a  Tumblr Feed  and  Blogger Feed  to your site.

    Hi all,

    I just added a wix blog to my website, love it! But I have a question:

    Is there a way (HTML, widget...?) for people to comment (I saw it was a work in progress) to a post AND for them to have the possibilities to share my post on social network (facebook, Pinterest, twitter etc)?

    Thank you for your advice!

      Hi, 

       

      Currently  you can either share or comment but you can use the same link to do it, as the URLs are constantly changing and you can only set up a constant HTML code it won't be a good workaround.

      Thx for your reply. I saw you were working on the comment part of my previous question but do you know if people (not myself) would be able to take one of my post and share it on social media? Are you working on that too? Because this is the big reason why I want a blog on my website: for people being able to comment and share my post...

      thx

      They already can, note the little social media icons below your posts.

    Hi, I have two questions.

    1) How can I make it so I'm notified when someone comments on my blog? and

    2) How can I moderate/delete comments, if necessary?

    Thanks

      Hi,

      Since we're currently using the Facebook comments as a comments system, this currently cannot be done. However a comment system is on our to do list!

       

      This also means that you can delete and remove comments when logged in to your profile after you set up the social profile at Settings -> Social Settings tag.

      Let us know if you have any questions.

      I have set up the Social Settings information from my Wix Editor page, but I still don't see how I delete a comment. I see how I can mark a comment as spam (directly from the blog itself) but I don't see a delete option. Is marking a comment as spam the only way currently to get rid of it?

    • Dror - Wix Support Wix Team

      Replied by Dror - Wix Support October 24, 2013

      Which site and page are you referring to - I'd like to make sure everything is set up right in order to forward this issue to our developers - marking as spam is not the way to remove comments.

    Hi Wix Team

    I am currently trying out your new Blog system and so far so good. I currently use WordPress however I find it difficult to customise to the way I like it, so Wix is much better for my needs. I know this is only in test mode at the moment, which is why I haven't fully committed to getting rid of my WordPress account but if the few things suggested below get changed then I will kiss goodbye WordPress and be fully committed to WIX!

    1. More pictures to be added to each blog post. I know this has been mentioned before but it is hugely important to a blogger, people want to see a mixture of words and pictures not a load of text, otherwise they switch off.

    2. Being able to change the size and position of photos and block text on the single post page. Currently you can change around the featured posts and latest posts, but not the actual post content. For example I may have a portrait photo and it would be good have text to the side of it rather than under it. This also applies to the main blog page too.

    3. Search Bar. I know you can search by text, but a search bar to look through all blog posts would be fantastic.(Though this is more wishlist than necessary.)

    There may be some more, but for now they are the main points. I am going to stick it out for now as I am sure this is going to get better and better, and really love how easy WIX is to navigate.

    Thanks Very Much

    Hannah
