About the Developer

This extension was developed by and is supported by aheadWorks

Blog - Community Edition by aheadWorks 4 5 161 161
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
Simple the best! Hi Magento users, I installed to my custom theme. It works perfect....I recommend for you... January 23, 2014
Great I have installed it for different version of magento and worked on some custom theme and it works as it described. January 9, 2014
No summary?? We got this extension as a test and where pretty excited at. However we discovered that the blogs overview only shows 1 blog message and not an overview.. :-( Does anyone else recognize this? January 8, 2014
Thanks a lot! Good plugin, Authors you are so great!As a popular free plugin, I recommend it December 12, 2013
After several attempts, is ued to work fine though We installed several times to the latest version 1.3 but somehow this is not working Fatal error: Class 'Mage_Awall_Helper_Data' not found in /home/dev/domains/testsite.com/public_html/app/Mage.php on line 546 December 10, 2013
thumbnail images This extension is very good. But I cannot add image for thumbnail like News (commerce lab)? How could I do that? December 2, 2013
Very good plugin, some problem to solve Hi, I installed this plugin and I've found it perfect, even if I'll have to work a little bit on css and design. What I am not able to let it work is the routing of the menu. If I clic on news I see the blog, but if I clic on news again it loops trying to find news/title_of_news/news, and so on adding always /news to url. How can I fix it? I tried but I've been not able. Thanks Roberto October 31, 2013

Answer: 
Hello,

from the description this far, it appears that a custom theme may be in use at your store, and the Blog's design files (templates/ layout/ skins) are not uploaded to your current theme.
We would suggest that you check it, if it is not the case, please, contact our support service for further guidance.
Thank you.

Answer: 
Hello!

First of all, please, check if the "Enable Top Link" option is set to "Yes" (in the "Menus And Links" tab of the module's config).
If the link does not appear (for example, you are using customized header section), or you need to place the link somewhere else, please, contact our support team for further guidance.
Thank you.

Answer: 
Hello!

The Blog extension allows to insert a block with the links to X latest posts, via the special "Blog: Latest Posts" widget.
If your need is to show actual post content, not just link, customization would be required. The code of the extension is open, you are free to implement any necessary adjustments.
Thank you.

Answer: 
Hello!

Unfortunately, it is hard to tell what the problem may be without more detailed examination of your case.
First of all, please, make sure that you are using the latest version of the module (1.3.1).
If updating does not help, please, contact our support service - our technical team will guide you further on.
Thank you.

Answer: 
Hello!

You can add the necessary link parameters to the bookmarks though this file: app/ design/ frontend/ your_package/ your_theme/ template/ aw_blog/ bookmarks.phtml
As for removing "cat" from extension's links, it would require customization.
If you need any further guidance on the matter, feel free to contact our support team.

Answer: 
Hello!

The extension's RSS feed gets added to the general store RSS menu, and can be retrieved from there.
The extension only supports general Blog feed, it does not allow to segregate by Blog categories.
As for the direct RSS URL, it would look like [domain]/index.php/[route_to_Blog]/rss/
If you need any additional guidance, feel free to contact our support service.
Thank you!

We just notice that blog title is prefix of each post. Such as our blog title is "Blog of Hera Wigs Store", and each our blog post have this prefix then is the post title. We want to remove this blog title from post title or set the blog title as suffix. Because this prefix is not good for SEO.

You can check this page's brower title then you will know that - http://www.herawigs.com/blog/hera-raise-price-from-march-2014-and-price-analyse/

I have faced this issue with a few different sites

The problem I having is when I insert images into a blog post they appear first time round but if I log out, clear my browser cache, & clear my Magento cache, next time I navigate to the blog posts the images previously inserted show as broken images? They have been loaded into the media library but there seems to be an error with the image link or path?

Any ideas?

Answer: 
Hello, Ryan.

The error trace point to something which looks like a WordPress Blog.
If that error appeared after the installation of our Blog Magento extension, it is likely that our module clashes with the some WP module.
It is not quite possible to give an y detailed instructions without examining the situation onsite. However, you can try changing our module's "Route To Blog" setting (you can find this option under System-> Config-> aheadWorks Extensions-> Blog-> Blog Settings).
If it does not help, please, contact our support service.
Thank you.
