Issue One: Blog height limitation
Due to Wix's implementation of the HTML app they restrict the max height of the block, this means that if your blog is too large it is likely that you won't be able to fit it all on the screen without having the visitor scroll.
To resolve this there are a few options:
Option 1: Export your post via JPGs and upload that way, this method does not run into this issue. Click here to learn how to do that.
Option 2: Reduce the amount of images in your blog.
