    Hi, is this feature for newer posts only? My older posts don't have this feature - add pic/video icons. I've cleared the cache and nothing changed.

      Hi Toni,

       

      We apologize for any confusion.

      You are correct, this feature is only valid for new blog posts.

       

      If you wish to add new content to older posts you can copy the content of the existing post. Next, add a new post, paste the content from the old post, add any images or videos you wish, and adjust the post date to any date you wish.

       

      Feel free to contact us with any further issues or questions you may have.

      All the best, Ellie

    Great addition. The one issue I'm having is adding a frame to the photos - which is obviously key in ensuring the images stand-out.

    No options for image post

    I used to be able to choose between a video, image, or text post when I would add a new post to my blog. Now it shows only published, featured, and draft posts as options. When I click on the icon to add a post, instead of a drop down menu giving me the option of adding a video, image, or text post, it opens a new text only post. There is no option to change it or to add an image. What's the problem and how do I fix it?!

    editing my blog

    Hi,

     

    When I go into my editor it will only let me post a text blog post where I could post a picture or video before. I would also like to know if you have a widget like pretty link.

    I'd like to have my posts look like www.Larrythemobileguy.com/whateverpost

     

    Thanks Larry

    Can't post a photo blog...

    Hi There, 

    I just tried to post a blog entry and the option to post a photo or video blog is not available, only text blogs. Is there some changes going on with the blog editor right now?

    I'm having some serious load time issues in the beta site for multiple images in a blog. What can I do to improve this???

    • Rony Wix Team

      Replied by Rony July 8, 2014

      Hi,

       

      I'm sorry to hear you are experiencing difficulties.

       

      In general, please note the performance of your HTML5 site is affected by a number of factors, including the size of your website and amount of content on it, your internet connection speed and your browser version. Using the most updated browser version and ensuring that your internet connection is stable and running at a high speed will help ensure that you are viewing your site in optimal conditions.

       

      For best performance, it is recommended to follow these guidelines:

       

      1. Optimizing the images on your site will have a great affect on its performance and loading time. For tips on adding images to ensure they take up as little space as possible, please click here.

       

      2. Distribute your content on several pages. This will improve loading times and overall load.


      3. Fonts take up a lot of CPU power and loading time. Please try not to use more than 2 fonts on a single page. Fonts in plain, bold, italic, bold & italic are all considered to be different fonts! The best solution would be to use browser text and not simple text.

       

      Hope this helps. For further assistance, we will be happy to help.

      Thanks, Rony Customer Solutions
