    I eventually want to add a link to the section in Teri Greeves on my Pictographic Dresses blog.  So I need to start on a new blog called Teri Greeves.  2 questions:  1. How do I create an independent blog?  2. How can a get my password, since I cut instead of coping it to sign in?

      Hi,

      Unfortunately, I don't fully understand your query.

      Do you want to add a second blog to your Wix site?

      I checked your site: Pictographic Dresses but I couldn't locate any blog on your site.

      Also, may I ask to which password are you referring to?

       

      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.

       

       

       

      We will appriciate if you could elaborate on the matter.

      Dina-Wix Team.

    Creating a new blog to attach to my Blog on Pictographic Dresses

    I'd like to create a blog about one of the artists I discuss, which is not about the main topic, Pictographic Dresses--and then create a link between them.

      Thank you.  I now know how to add a link button and am trying to follow the instructions on adding a blog to which Pictographic Dresses will link. But I don't know how to "roll over" my blog.  

      I want to link the new one to the last element on Pictographic Dresses:  Teri Greeves

      I browsed you site and wasn't able to locate any Blog feature.

      Then you'll be able to add the "Teri Greeves" title to this blog page.

       

      Check out our learning center page for more information and instructions.

       

      Please inform us whether you need any further assistance,

    How to add links to other websites

    Hello,

    I want to add resources on my page without having to add a downloadable document with the list of websites my clients can access.  What I want to do instead is to have the links visible on my page.  For example:  Header name: Resources.  Under this tab I want to have

    Psychology articles to read.

    Psychology today offers different mental health articles that will increase your knowledge about certain topics you are interested in.

    www.psychologytoday.com

    Everytime I do this "www.psychologytoday.com" does not automatically turn into a website link that will let my clients click on.  How do I do this?

    buttons don't link anymore

    Hi, 

    I have the titles of the different pages on my site running across the top of my home page.  They all used to be buttons that you could click to take you to the page.  Now none of them work.  

    Please help.

    I don't want to add a lot of buttons.  I just want to be able to click the title of the page.

    Hi Wix Support.

    I am struggling to find a way to be able to upload Images and Text to the live site.

    Is that possible as this stage or not. I need the capability for followers to be able to upload images to my page and give updates.

      Hey  vpowercomputing ,

       

      Thanks for contacting us.

      Unfortunately this is not possible at the moment. 
       

      You can add the 123 FormBuilder app to your site and allow your site visitors to upload files via the form. You can read more about this  here. You can find information and instructions about the 123 FormBuilder app here. Alternatively, you can also direct your visitors to email you with the file.

       

       

      Thanks,

    picassa web album

    Can I use a picassa web album (embedded link) on the wix website as a slide show, rather than uploading each picture to the site?

      Thank you for the reply. I was not able to add the album as it does not have the proper link. Please see the description below of what I need to do to add the slideshow to the website. Please let me know how I can do this - copy to HTML code and paste in the source code of my site. Thank you.

      On the My Photos page, click your album.
      Click Link to this album on the right-hand side.
      Click Embed Slideshow.
      Choose your slideshow settings, such as image size, captions, and autoplay.
      Once you've chosen your settings, copy the resulting HTML code (Ctrl-C).
      Paste the HTML in the source code for your site (Ctrl-V).

      Hi nhartman510,

      Unfortunately it is not possible to add HTML code directly to the source code of your site.

      However, you can use our HTML App. With this App you can test and add your own HTML code to your Wix site.

      For more information you can click here.

    How do I add a link?

    How do I add a link? I have a picture that I am telling my visitors who took it, and want to link her website and her Facebook page to it. That way visitors can click on the link instead of copying it and finding the pages.

     

    Thanks,

     

    Marie
