    I am also having the problem of archives showing a month behind. I have tried several browsers and devices, clearing all cookies, history and rebooting browsers. Seems to be a bug. Help please?!

      I apologize for the temporarily inconvenience.

      I checked your site through the editor and live, however I wasn't able to reproduce the issue you are having. Shown in the screenshot below:

    My blog posts are also appearing a month behind in the archive on my music city news, crank it country, and in charge country sites. How is this fixed?

      The problem is that the archive is putting posts a month behind. June posts are archived in May, May posts in April, etc.

    I'm having the same problem others are having:  the blog post archive consistently reads a month behind where the actual posts are dated 

    I made the first post a few days ago in May, the archive read "April"; 

    I changed the post's date to today in June, the archive switched to reading "May"; 

    I made a second (test) post today (now deleted) - the archive read them both as "May"; 

    I changed the dates of both posts to read "July", the archive read "June".  I click on the "May" archive, and it brings up the posts dated June.  I've tried clearing the cache and cookies, Firefox and Safari, and the problem remains.

      Hey, 

      I am sorry you are experiencing difficulties. I have visited your site's editor and all the posts were archived as expected as you can see below:


       

      Please try the following steps to make sure that your issue is not a local one:
       
      1. Open your browser to a blank page. Close any Wix pages that are open.
      2. Clear your browser's cache and cookies of "Everything". You can find step-by-step instructions here.
      3. Restart your browser and then log into your Wix account and try again. 
      4. Try using an anonymous browsing window and see if it helps:
      With Chrome, use the CTRL + SHIFT + N keyboard shortcut.
      With Firefox, use the CTRL + SHIFT + P keyboard shortcut.
       
      5. Try using other browsers to open Wix. Recommended browsers include Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and either IE or Safari (depending on whether you use a PC or a MAC).
      Please note that clearing your browser's cache will not resolve all issues.

      To download the latest Google Chrome browser please click here
      To download the latest Firefox browser please click here
       
       
      Let us know if the problem persists or if you need any additional help.

    I'm having the same issue that kransick reported -- I've started a new blog, and all the May posts are archived as April 2014.  Ritti seemed to fix this for kransick, but didn't elaborate as to how.  What am I doing wrong here?  Thanks!

    1. Can I have the choice of more posts on my blog showing rather than going down the page and it saying 'older posts'?

    2. Wishlist: I am creating a gallery of my work. This needs to be separate from my blog as it is for my portfolio pics only. It would be really helpful if I could have the ability to order these photos to an employer. So archive by: most recent, season (rather than month, and year not wanted) and other custom archive (like order by colour). I thought perhaps I could of created another blog then at least I could order my gallery (portfolio) by month at least. But I can't make another blog. Any other suggestions on ease of viewing for employer who only wants to see certain photos?

    3. How do I edit my single posts page?! I can't figure out how to get onto each single post page. I want to edit each single post. I know you don't currently have multi channel photos for single post, but is coming soon, but I would like to add text and images below what's there because at the moment it is pointless clicking on the post and taking to a separate page with everything missing.

    4. In the blog, how do I create a small teaser of info by the photo that IS DIFFERENT from the content in the single blog post. For example, scrolling down blog, there is a photo and next to it 'I tested this product. See the results here' and when they clicked and it goes to the single blog post it starts not by saying this but by saying 'the X product is well known. But I tested it an this....'  

    5. Is there also a way to have a smaller amount of text or larger amount in the blog descriptions, so it doesn't cut off in the wrong place or say too mcuh. For example, if my text was 'I tested this product......(more text).....the results were', I wouldn't want this whole paragraph to show because I would want them to click before reading I wrote about the results (I''d want a shorter tease), and also, I might want the rest of the sentence to show and not be cut off. For example '....the results were, inconclusive'.

     

    Thanks! Hope those make sense.

      BTW. Answer to question 1... please see my 'portfolio' page for what I mean. Viewers can switch between my gallery and blog. Some of the blog is for general blogging and some is showing how i created the work in portfolio.

      6. How do I link a whole gallery of work in portfolio to SINGLE post (link my work with how I mad it). At the moment you can see I just have switch to blog view. However, this means viewer has to (if they can be bothered) scroll through potentially really old posts to find how I made it and looses interest. It would be great if I could link them and will improve their understanding of what I can do.

       

      Thanks

      Just read somewhere, maybe the answer to 6. would be going to live URL, getting link of single blog post and then linking it to a certain gallery. then doing that for all galleries and single post pages?

      Hi,

      That would serve as a work around to your suggestion and will give you more control, simply hide the "blog" page, and link directly to the posts from galleries - it will also act as a work around to most of your requests. Note that most of the features provided here are on our development roadmap and are already being developed. 

      I'm not sure what you're referring to in 3 - you can't edit specific blog posts' design, the "Single post" will change according to the post you're viewing. 

       

      You can also use the ticker and the featured posts as a filter system and place it anywhere on your site without copy-pasting URLs.

       

      It seems that the features you're looking for don't exist at the moment, make sure to add them to our wishlist by posting here..

    blog archive displays incorrect month

    I just started using your blog feature for a special project.  It is located at www.newlingristmill.org (you can see on the far right nav bar where it says "dam blog.")

    I added an archive, but all of the posts are displaying as April 2014.  They were all made in May.  I checked the dates of the posts.  Is there a reason why this date is displaying as April and how can I fix this.  Thank You!
