It's actually a little unfathomable that the native Wix blog does not allow users to reply to comments. This should be a no-brainer. Blogging is all about engagement and building an audience. How can I be an effective blogger without engaging with those who support me?
Yes, there is the comments app that allows that feature but I think its design is very outdated and it's not as if it integrates completely. Meaning, if I add the comments app I have to disable the native Wix comments and all those users' comments who commented previously on my blog will disappear, making me:
1. Look like I have no engagement
2. Start all over with posts that have no comments at all.
I can't imagine it's that much of a hassle to add this feature. It seems quite simple to me (though I know literally nothing about coding or programming at all). I appreciate the new features the Wix Blog has been getting as of late, I finally feel seen. But I just really wish this simple and fundamental feature that lies at the crux of blogging was available.
