Few issues with my WIX blog that I need help with...
When I first set my blog up, there was a settings section where I could choose to hide the search bar, hide the log in bar, etc. Guess you'd call it blog header options, along with a few other settings. I cannot seem to find that area now, as the settings that I initially chose didn't seem to be saved/stored. Where/how can I access that, and why are the settings not saving?
This is a sitewide issue, but it's happening a lot on the blog...when I go to preview my page, sometimes the blog posts just disappear, as in gone. Then I'll reload the page or log out & then back in again, and they show up like before. Frustrating!
Is there no way to change the font style or font size of blog articles AND the titles? I do not see those options at all. The ability to change font styles and font sizes is VERY basic, and I'm surprised the WIX blog doesn't offer this.
I have a feed set up on my website, which displays the latest 3 blog posts on my homepage. But the title text in the preview boxes is left-aligned. Is there any way to center-align it?
I'm attempting to build out my site now in the free version, and all of these bugs (not limited just to the blog) have me questioning if I should proceed to a paid account. The whole point of WIX (and its claim to fame) is how easy and dependable it is. But I'm not seeing that at all, thus far :(
Hello @Al Donelly,
1. Blog menu settings can be found on the main blog feed, clicking on it, then going to Settings -> Display -> Blog Menu:
2. This can happen if during your work on the site, your account gets log off. When your account is no longer logged into Wix, it cannot retrieve your blog posts. This can happen if you share your account with somebody else. This can be fixed by simply opening another tab, going to wix.com and logging back in.
3. In order to change the font and style of the blog posts, you need to go to the Post Page settings. How to locate the Post Page can be found here: https://support.wix.com/en/article/customizing-the-post-page-in-the-new-wix-blog
4. Alignment settings are not currently available for blog feeds but I'll make sure to add that to our wish-list. However, you can create a custom blog feed using Wix Corvid which allows you to align the text in any way you want to. Here's a link to a discussion where I explained how to create such a feed: https://www.wix-blog-community.com/blog/discussions/can-you-use-dynamic-pages-and-datasets-to-create-your-own-custom-blog-pages-on-wix-without-coding.
Hope this helps!
