Update: We have some exciting news!

We are pleased to announce that we have released our new multi-content blog feature! You can now add multiple images or videos to your blog posts. This also means that you no longer need to choose a post type when creating your posts.

 

You can add images and videos to your post, at any time, through the Post Editor. 

 

To add a multi-content blog post: Click your blog to select it > from the pop-up menu, click Add & Edit Blog Posts > click Add.

To add an image: From the Post Editor, click the Image icon (as can be seen in the screen shot below) > select existing images or upload a new one > click Add Images.

To add a video: From the Post Editor, click the Video icon (as can be seen in the screen shot below) > enter the YouTube URL of the video.

In the Post Editor, click the space above or below the image to continue editing > to add additional images or videos, click the Image or Video icon again and repeat the steps above.


Note: It is not possible to add multiple images or videos to older blog posts which you created before this feature was released.

 

We'd like to take this opportunity to thank you for your patience while waiting for this feature.

To learn more about this feature please watch the video below:

    Adding photos to a blog

    Dear Wix team, I've using Wix for about a month now, long after your announcement last October (see above that "We are pleased to announce that we have released our new multi-content blog feature! You can now add multiple images or videos to your blog posts. This also means that you no longer need to choose a post type when creating your posts." I've tried editing old posts (the earliest dating from June 2014) with a view to adding photos. Nothing doing. If I create a new post, I see the little icon enabling me to add photos, videos etc. Any ideas?
    Best wishes,

    Conor Biggs

      Hi Conor,

       

      Unfortunately, the option of adding multiple images in not available for old posts, only for new ones. It is not possible to add multiple images or videos to older blog posts which you created before this feature was released.

      This thread was created on October 2013, before the feature was available, and the best reply used to say: coming soon.

      We have updated the best reply recently.

       

      Let us know if you have more questions.

      Thanks for your speedy reply. As I don't have more than a handful of older posts, it's not the end of the world. On a positive note — and this is intended for some of your jaundiced users — I find Wix extremely user friendly, particularly compared to the Serif system I was using previously.

      Kind regards,

      Conor Biggs

    Unable to add picture to a new blog entry

    I am unable to add a picture to a new blog entry.  I am no longer seeing an option to do this.  If you look at all the existing blog entries in my website you will see each entry contains a picture.  Why am I no longer able to see this option?

    I've been having issues with this update. It takes VERY long for me to make one post. Sometimes I have to keep on trying to post the same thing over and over because I get a undefined message when I try to publish.

     

    An example this morning I have made only ONE post in 4-5 hours due to this problem. My blog section is the most important section of updating on my site to keep traffic coming daily. The customer service has been atrocious with me on this for the last few days.

    Dear Wix Team,

    Will there be an option to add a gallery to blog posts anytime soon? The galleries are an awesome way to showcase pictures. Although the new option to add multiple images to a blog posts, the way they are presented is not up to the usual visual quality level of Wix ;-)

    Is it only youtube videos? pretty much all of the videos we will want to upload are from Channel 5 on demand or channel 4 and many from other charity websites - virtually none of them exist on youtube. How do I upload these videos?

    thanks

    WIX blog problems - options gone

    Hi,

    I have the WIX blog on my site, and I'm meant to be able to add text posts, picture posts and video posts. When you click 'Add/Edit posts' and the pop up appears, the +ADD button on the top right used to give me these 3 options, but now when I click it I can only do a text blog post. This isn't much good for an illustrator, I need pictures! I've been able to duplicate my older posts to make new ones, but can't add any video ones at all. Can this please be looked into, thanks.
