About the Developer

This extension was developed by and is supported by aheadWorks

Blog - Community Edition by aheadWorks 3.9 5 168 168
Completely wasted my time It just doesn't work! I've got a "There has been an error processing your request" error. A solution /didn't test it/ for this could be found in developer's forum, but this is simply unacceptable - to have this type of problems on a clean magento installation. Very disappointing ... On Magento ver. 1.8.1.0 October 8, 2014
Great Extension with amazing support. What more could you ask for an extension that does what it says. With great support and its free!! Great work!! September 5, 2014
Everything working well. Everything working well. But I think it is missing an image field. August 14, 2014
Mage 1.9.1 RWD Does not show anything on RWD template. Did try to copy design elements to rwd (solution review below). maybe did something wrong. Please advice. never had problems before with this exention on other versions. June 26, 2014
Doesn't work, waisting of time After following the installation procedure from the HELP directory, the Blog menu appeared in my Magento, however the actual blog page doesn't show any messages or posts. Useless. May 30, 2014
Has a problem with iphone theme Hi,this extension has a problem with magento's iphone theme,when enter blog,it will miss some thing. May 20, 2014
Awesome Blog I installed this blog as per the instructions given in their website. And the blog works perfectly in my website. Its also very easy to customise the blog for looks.. I did some changes like adding read me button. Overall very easy to install and customise. Me being a newbie in web coding easily installed and did the changes. April 6, 2014
Great blog extension! I think this plugin is excellent and covers most of things you could need for multilanguage Magento blog. Minor bugs: Problem with "Date Created" input for non-english site Admin, does not take correctly date from Magento Calendar button. Can be easy corrected manually though. Improvements needed: On every page of blog should be Main title like "Blog", taken from admin panel Blog translation value (otherwise visitor could get lost within many titles and categories if blog/site). Can be added in pages code manually though. After article duplication you should stay in duplicated article in editing mode to make changes (like in Magento product editing pages). Anyway totally recommend. Great blog. March 28, 2014
Works fine, easy and simple Just what i was looking for, no so much options to manage, but perfect for those sites that need only some news and post for SEO. Enough support in different forums to find what i want. March 25, 2014
All everyone could need.. I think this plugin is excellent and covers everything anyone could need within magento. However after 4/5 installs I still havn't got the blog posts displaying. I am using Magento ver. 1.8.1.0 Community Edition. I have installed versions 1.3.1 and 1.3.0 with no luck. I have also cleared cache and done that stuff. Is there anything else I can try? would love to get this working. That aside excellent plugin, keep up the good work. Thanks February 10, 2014

Answer: 
Hi,

There are several ways of solving the described issue. First of all you may disable the "Auto Approve Comments" option in System->Configuration->aheadWorks Extensions->Blog->Comments, so no comments will be published unless an administrator approves them.
Also, you may enable ReCAPTCHA functionality in System->Configuration->aheadWorks Extensions->Blog->ReCAPTCHA, which should also help with most of the spam messages.

Answer: 
Hello.

The block with X latest Blog posts links can be inserted to any store area via the special "Blog: Latest Posts" widget.
However, by default the extension will only show post title with a link, adding some truncated post content to that block requires customization.
Thank you.

Answer: 
Hello.
Such error occurs in case the Blog extension is installed via the Connect manager on top of our other products.
All our extensions have a set of common files, which are already in place at your store, so the Connect manager fails to overwrite or skip those.
This problem can be solved by installing the Blog extension via FTP. You can download the extension's package from the aheadWorks own webstore, and install it according to the instructions from the module's readme file.
Thank you.

Please, check the installation instructions provided in the readme file (Step_1 specifically), in case you expect any difficulties, contact our support service.

You can specify the "Route To Blog" option in the module's configuration screen:
System-> Configuration-> aheadWorks Extensions-> Blog-> Blog Settings.
For example, "news" will make the blog accessible from "domain.com/news".
You can further on insert this link to any location of the store.

Quick question, do you know how I find the rss link for the news feed. It mentions it in the description and want to link to it but just wondering what the url would be?

Also, another question but that's slightly harder. I am looking how to search the news from a search on the top of the template. I am not sure if that's possible or not?

Thanks,

Like the extension so far,

Answer: 
Hello, Chris.
Regarding the RSS feed URL, the exact link may vary depending on the store and extension's settings (besides, posting any kind of URLs is prohibited in Magento Connect answers).
Basically, if you enable the Blog module's RSS, it will be added to the main store RSS. You will be able to find the correspondent direct link in this section.
As for searching the Blog posts, the Blog extension itself does not comprise such functionality. However, you can get this function if you use the Blog module together with our other product, the Advanced Search extension - the latter does allow to search the posts directly from the main search bar.
Thank you.

You can control Pagination in the Blog extension via the "Posts Per Page" option in System-> Configuration-> aheadWorks Extensions-> Blog-> Blog Settings backend area.
You can specify several values in this field, all these options will be available in "Show X per page" frontend selector.

I have installed the Blog AW extension and

1) pointed the route to news so the URL is www.domain.com/news for all blog articles.

2) set the 'Use categories id in posts URLs' field to NO in the configuration settings.

PROBLEM: My URL is appearing like so:
www.domain.com/news/cat/article.html

QUESTION: Is there a way to remove the /cat/ ?

Answer: 
Hello,

when any extension is installed via Magento Connect Manager, the files are copied in the default theme folders. So if you use any custom theme, you won’t see Blog in the frontend and\or backend. To fix this issue, you should download the package from our website and install the module manually. All the installation instructions can be found in the package or at the Blog page.

Answer: 
Hello,

the extension adds its "Previous" and "Next" navigation arrows to the pagination bar by default, so if these narrows are not displayed it indicates that either extension has not installed properly or there takes place an incompatibility conflict with your custom theme.

I have installed your blog extension. It was working fine for a week or so but now my blog tab URL has changed and is sending to a missing page. I changed the URL back but again a week later it changes the URL.
Is there a URL rewrite setting that I am missing?
Again I am referring to the link from a tab on the homepage.

Thanks in Advance

Answer: 
Hello,

the described situation is quite weird. The URL to the blog section (specified in the System-> Configuration-> Blog-> Blog Settings-> "Route to Blog") is static, it will not be changed automatically under any conditions.
Probably, there is a conflict with some 3rd-party modules installed in your system.
You can report the situation to our support service, however, please, note that we only support the free Blog Community Edition module on paid basis.
Thank you.

Answer: 
Hello,

you can enable top and footer links to the Blog section in System-> Configuration-> Blog-> Menus And Links backend screen.
The links can also be inserted manually into any other store area you may want.
Thank you.

the error is:

Error in file: "/home/rrmusicc/public_html/app/code/community/AW/Blog/sql/blog_setup/mysql4-upgrade-1.0.15-1.0.16.php" - SQLSTATE[42S02]: Base table or view not found: 1146 Table 'rrmusicc_store10.aw_blog' doesn't exist

I copied all the files (I think) from the defaults to my custom theme...

Kind of a novice at this and need some help!

Thanks!

Ive used AW blog with a custom theme before without issue but with my current theme the blog just isn't showing up in the front end.

I copied layouts/aw_blog.xml file and templates/aw_blog folder to my current themes directory but no luck.

Any suggestions?

I made the mistake of installing this extension without disabling the compiler.

NOW I cannot access the backend. Can you tell me how to do this??

I already tried commenting the config and REMOVED this extension completely.

But CANNOT access backend?

I get the following message

Mage registry key "_singleton/awall/feed_extensions" already exists

I installed the extension. It works fine. However I see "Compare" option in the left sidebar under the Blog Posts. How do we remove that just from this page?

Unfortunately the module does not allow that out of the box, a customization would be required in this case. All of our products are open-source so you may either apply the required modifications yourself or contact our technical specialists using the form on our website.

Hi there,

I'm keen on trying out your blogsystem, but what does it actually do?

I've used a WP-Blog within magento, but all posts are NOT send to my magento-sitemap. Does your system support sitemap integration - I mean one sitemap?

THX!

Answer: 
Hello, the Blog pages would not be added to the sitemap by default, however it can be achieved with another product of ours, Ultimate SEO Suite, which would provide Blog's integration into the sitemap.

Hi,

I was going to look at your free blog extension for Magento. I found this page http://www.magentocommerce.com/magento-connect/blog-community-edition-by-aheadworks.html

Clicked on Install Now. Which gives a pull down, not set correctly for the latests version, a button "Get Extension key" and a tick box.
I selected Magento connect 2.0 as I'm running Magento 1.7.0.2.
I read the license and ticked the box.
Clicked on the "Get Extension" button which displays, a URL to which I do not have access
"Forbidden, You don't have permission to access /community/AW_Blog/ on this server."
and a button "Select key".
The "Select key" does nothing of any use other then select the text.

So how to I download the extension? I cannot see anything in the Q&A or Support tabs that give any clue. There is no download button, tick box, pull down or anything else that I can find which may allow me to actually download the extension.
