use this block to display the latest news {{block type="clnews/news" template="clnews/latest.phtml"}} nice extension by the way, it's working fluently on Magento 1.7.0.2 January 10, 2013
Magento 1.7.0.2 - this extension broke down ability to pass parameters in URI - search (?q=) and catalog mode (?mode=) was immediately down. Not recommended. January 7, 2013
This is a good extension, but isn't free of bugs. For example, when trying to edit a news item, I received an error complaining about the way the store id was being passed (as an array rather than a string): Warning: htmlspecialchars() expects parameter 1 to be string, array given. This can be fixed: http://www.magentocommerce.com/boards/viewthread/54985/#t179770 Saved me a ton of time -- but you may need to do some finagling to get it to work perfectly! December 26, 2012
the "Use Full Description Image" function is chosen/checked by default in setting, and you can't uncheck it. You are not allowed to unload image separately for short description but have to share the same one with full description. If you disable showing full description image, and set show short description image to be yes, the selected image will not appear on front page. How to fix this bug? Thanks! December 3, 2012
I cannot display news in static block. Please who can write instruction step by step? Vitalis November 29, 2012
If you'ved just installed this extension in your Magento and you receive the following error: Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_ENDFOREACH in app\design\frontend\default\default\template\clnews\list.phtml on line 73 This is what you need to do in order to fix the error. Find the page app/design/frontend/default/default/template/clnews/list.phtml Look through the lines of code and replace all instances of <? with <?php That should fix the issue. November 19, 2012
Great extension works great in v 1.6.2. I have one issue however which i would like to change. When i goto the news page from the frontend the page is on a secure page (https) my client asked if this can be a standard (http) page. how can i change this? is there a reason why the news page is down as secure. November 8, 2012
Hi Extension is working very well. But I need a little help, Is there a way to change the date format? From yy/mm/dd format to mm/dd/yy format ? I didn't see an option in Backend, Can you tell me which .PHTML file to edit and where to edit? Thanks October 25, 2012
Nice extension. Working fine on my 1.6 installation October 11, 2012
No news on frontend! I use 1.7 and I already copied template files to my template! Can't get this to work :/ October 10, 2012

Hello,

I've created a category which appears as a button in my menu. The directory of the category is ".../news". Same is the the News-Site-URL which I configured in the Extension configuration. But I see only blank page. How can I fix that?

regards

Answer: 
Actually should place the button using any CMS block, where you create the button for example "news" and assing a link to it and better with a full path for example http://www.yourwebpage.com/news

p.s. In the setting of this Extensions you can configure the link! for instance not just news, but "fashion-news" it helps for search engines

p.s. Creating a category will do nothing! you need at least one "news" to be created and assigned to that category so that it will appear :)

Answer: 
If you're trying it out like I did, and you're using a custom module, then you have to follow the above steps to fix this as mentioned in the custom module question.

It should have been pretty common sense that you were testing this out from a base installation of the script, which does come with a test news item. So, it should be assumed that this troubleshooting step (making sure a news item exists) was performed.

Anyway, here's the fix

Just copy the next files

1) app/design/frontend/default/default/layout/clnews.xml
to
app/design/frontend/[your_package]/default/layout/clnews.xml

2) app/design/frontend/default/default/template/clnews
to
app/design/frontend/[your_package]/default/template/clnews

3) skin/frontend/default/default/css/clnews
to
skin/frontend/[your_package]/default/css/clnews

4) skin/frontend/default/default/css/commercelab/treeview
to
skin/frontend/[your_package]/default/css/commercelab/treeview

5) skin/frontend/default/default/images/clnews
to
skin/frontend/[your_package]/default/images/clnews

Answer: 
This could be fixed by the next way.

Just log out from the admin panel and then log in again. It's a common way for all Magento extensions in order to refresh admin permissions after the module installation.
