This is on Twitter after last night's superbowl advert. If Wix doesn't rate its own blog product enough to use it, why should we?
Is it true Wix's own Blog actually runs on Wordpress? content media

I've not been able to edit posts on Android since August 2017 I was also concerned to read elsewhere in this forum that you still haven't even confirmed the root cause of the problem yet, but you "think it might be something to do with non-standard Android Keyboards". Given I use the default Android keyboard, that suggests to me Wix haven't identified so much as the root cause of the problem, let alone found a fix. Isn't it time Wix handed this bug over to someone who can actually fix it? I've had over a year of stock responses like "we're working on it" , "it's fixed" (it actually wasn't, this was untrue), or "we can't reperform it"

I was surprised today to discover, completely by accident, that Wix appears to have signficantly changed the way multiple authors can post to Wix blog. The community blogging aspects seem to have gone (i.e. anyone used to be able to post, that appears to be no longer the case? e.g. You've removed the post button for all visitors of the site, which encouraged new contributions from the community) The new workflow for approving new writers is unbelievably complicated. This means that hours of work I have spent on a website design based on Wix appear to be in ruins. I will have to source another platform I guess. What is going on at Wix Blog? It's not just the lack of communication that annoys me, it's the seemingly poor design decision making, because you don't appear to me to understand blogging, inconsistency, and the inability to fix or even identify the root cause bugs that are over a year old. Compared to Wordpress, this is a terrible experience. And Wix Support are a complete joke. I have to be direct here because I have raised these issues numerous times before in the various Wix blog forums and also with support.

I asked this question back in January 2018. The reason I'm asking is I still don't understand what you are trying to build and what types of blogs it is for? A lot of the decisions don't seem to follow any strategy and sometimes conflict. A lot of the features seem to cater for quite basic personal lifestyle blogs, but nothing else. Nothing close to Wordpress. A lot of the community site/multi-author blogging features, which is the area I'm most interested in, seem to have vanished overnight without warning. Originally on the new wix blog, it could be set up that anyone can "post" to the blog, now you're saying use Wix forum instead !! If I don't know what you are building, and you're not consistent, I can't use Wix. In fact I'm very close to never touching Wix again, after my experiences with the Wix Blog team. I'll recommend others use Wordpress or Squarespace as they are better supported blogging solutions.

There is an ususable scroll bar on the right hand side as in the picture. You can't actually use the scroll bar for anything, so it shouldn't be there. Windows 10, latest version of Firefox, PC Please don't ask me to contact support, they are worse than useless.

I'm quite frustrated that despite numerous conversations with the Wix blog team in the old forum, where I thought some understanding was reached, Wix blog keep building solutions that make no sense to me. For example, the permissions model for the blog. Which user asked you to build this (see the picture below) as the solution for new writers on a community site? Certainly not me. It is impractical for a community site. I suspect no-one asked for this. In fact, I can't think of any situation on any type of blog where this works. The above solution won't work because on a community site I don't know the writers. Anyone can apply to post to a wix blog site. So once I approve a request any spammer can go ahead and spam the site. I told you on the 23rd April this solution wasn't acceptable and you just went ahead. I said: A manual approval before the user posts probably wont stop spamming. I also said this in Dec 2017 I don't understand how approving members will help combat spam. I don't know the people joining my site, I will only know if they are posting spam when they actually start posting spam. That's why I said before we need an option to approve the first posts by new members to verify them that way. Back in December 2017, you agreed with me that post approval would be required, but you seem to have forgot that conversation and just built in email address approval. Please describe to me a scenario where this new email address control you've added helps with anything whatsoever. Because I don't understand how it helps with anything. This is all despite numerous lengthly forum threads where I, and many others, were trying, in vain, to get you to agree a useable permissions model on Wix blog: Like here And here And here And here We are going around in circles. You keep building bad solutions that no-one has asked for, wasting my time and your development resources. I've asked before, and I'll ask again, please ask the users before you code bad solutions.
You're not consulting with users and ignoring previous design discussions.  content media

It's been a while since I've used Wix blog (because it was so buggy) Are all the Android mobile editing issues and tablet issues resolved now? I appreciate speed seems to have been improved a lot but what about the actual editing on mobile. That experience was incredibly frustrating to use?

It takes you to a blank page I find it very odd that you've spent time moving the Wix Blog community to another Wix product that is so buggy
