I'm trying to get my head around how to modify the new Wix blog with Wix Code, either through an API or code injection. Both Wix blog and Wix Code are developing platforms at the moment, and I don't know their roadmaps so a steer would be welcome. Equally, the ideas presented here may, I hope, help you shape the roadmap for the Wix blog API.
Scenario: I want to build a membership site where members write reviews of products
New Wix Blog is already 95% of what I need so I don't want to rebuilt these elements:
- The blog post editor
- The memberships
- The commenting
- The categories
- The hashtags
- The like buttons
^ These are all big features, so I don't want, or have the capability, to rebuild them.
What I want to add is a couple of custom fields to the blog posts, to be entered by the user at the same time as the blog post. One of the custom fields will capture the products's URL, the other custom field will capture the product's price.
I've been discussing what I'm trying to build with the Wix Blog Product team in further detail at the link below, in particular see the posts towards the end of the thread , especially the one with the annotated picture of the user input fields
I am wondering if Wix Code's new API for blogs may be able to help with this?
- Will it be possible to add extra fields to the blog database?
- Will it be possible to output the blog database using the new Repeaters?
