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
Love the extension. Just one thing I am missing - in admin / news list there is no overview in which category news are. You have to first click on the each news to see which category is selected. But we have alot of news in each category and it would be very useful if there was additional filter for category, like it is for Store view for example. October 8, 2012
Everything seems to be working fine but the page i created in CMS with the same url as news "route to news" but it displays blank. I saw i'm not the only one with this issue. How did you resolve it? Thanks! October 5, 2012
seems it didnt support pagination August 5, 2012
Works perfectly in version 1.7. CommerceLabs was very helpful to assist us to get the module working, let us apply our own CSS for our theme, helped us with advice for small code tweaks to position the module. Support was very good and prompt with working answers to our questions. Works perfectly and who can beat the price! June 23, 2012
Just awesome. Works just as you would hope. Respect to CommerceLab. June 21, 2012
'settings' not working in 1.7 June 21, 2012
working in 1.6.0 very well June 1, 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.
