A lot of the features in the New Wix blog are things I was considering building with Wix Code to build a community site where users submit posts.
e.g. In New Wix Blog site Members can:
Manage their own posts
Manage comments on their posts
Manage their profile page
Which makes me think "don't reinvent the wheel if Wix has already just built memberships with blogging"
.....but can I connect and use Wix Code functionality with New Wix Blog to customise it? Or is Wix Blog effectively a standalone app where I can't access its database?
Why? I want to be able to:
Format new posts using a form into the Wix blog. This form would allow: A title, an image, URL, description text, category drop down and a number field. So the site wouldn't allow free format blogs from the site members.
Have a small workflow - where I approve posts before they are published (to eliminate spam)
Is this possible, or will I need to replicate it from scratch using Wix Code?
