Great extension Great extension, it works fine on magento 1.9.0.1 CE However, it works only on default package / default theme. You should upgrade it to the correct routing. If you have custom package/theme, make sure you copy the following folders and files layout/clnews.xml , template/clnews , skin->css/clnews, skin->css/commercelab, skin->images/clnews to your custom folders.

Great Extension and quick support Contacted CommerceLab in regards of trouble installing wich was probalby my bad but they fixed is ASAP and the extension is exactly what i was looking. July 3, 2014
Great support Had some trouble installing but the support is awesome, within 5 minutes the extension was up and running! Thanx CommerceLab! July 1, 2014
Works great with 1.8.1 CE I have installed the News extension with 1.8.1 CE and it works great. Though I ran into two issues ("404", embeding block-code) straight after the installation, they were quickly resolved by the CommerceLab support. Actually, those two were non-issues. For the 404 I only had to log-out and log-in (shame on me...) and the block-code has to be embedded on a page within the CMS section (not the categories). Thanks again guys, for this extension and the support!! April 9, 2014

Great Support & good extension I had the problem that the plugin wouldn't load the way it should and therefore asked for help. Getting an email response within few hours is really good, considering that this is just the free version. The extension itself works as advertised and has a wide support of typical cms usecases. January 17, 2014
Easy to use & greate Support This is an excellent extension for everybody who needs a News or Blog Section in their Shop. It is easy to use and the customization of the Templates also works very well. I also want to mention that they give you great support, even though it is a free extension. I had a Problem with a multiple StoreViews and contacted the CommerceLab support - not 24 hours Later they replayed with a solution for my problem! Strongly recommended! January 10, 2014
Great Extension, Excellent Support! This extension is highly versatile and packed with lots of features with great support staffs and quick response. January 9, 2014
