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
Fantastic support! I've been using extensions by this company for a few years and their support is AWESOME!! Products are brilliant too and I highly recommend them June 27, 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: 
Aheadworks Dev refers us to the Readme file for instruction to use this extension... however, if you use MagentoGo or Connect to install this extension we do not have the tar on our local machine... thus, there is NO readme file to refer to. Can someone please post a direct download link or a link to the Readme file.

Answer: 
Hello!

Unfortunately, the current version of the Blog extension (1.3.1) does not allow using phrases as tags, it only supports single-word tags.
We are considering adding this feature in future updates.
If you have any other questions regarding the capabilities of the Blog extension, feel free to contact our Support service.
Thank you.

My site loads fast but the blog page takes minutes to load for only 40 posts (even limited to 5 per page).

All this time is spend waiting for the server to respond. I am guessing that the query takes that long.

Reducing the number of published posts reduces the waiting time.

What is going wrong and how can I fix it?
(Magento 1.7.0.2)
Please see this link for details.

Ok, I could solve my problem:

There were thousands of unapproved spam comments.
Maybe the System should have the option for notifications for comments. As far as I was concerned I never knew about them.

our Blog extension does not by default feature any toolset for importing blog articles from some external sources.
It may be possible to do such import within our customization service, so I suggest that you contact our support team - we will check if we can offer any solution.

I tried the aheadWorks Blog extension and for the most part it was easy to setup and worked well. After using it for a bit I have changed my mind about having a blog built into my store. I uninstalled the plugin through the magento-connect menu, but for some reason the blog link in the top-link header remains. Why wasn't this removed along with the extension. BTW I'm using a custom theme not a default one, so I had to copy the folders and xml file into my theme folders.

Thanks

Answer: 
Hello,

first of all, we would suggest that you check your header CMS block - in case you had inserted the Blog link manually, uninstalling the module would not have removed the link.
If it is not the case, then we can assume that the uninstall wasn't completely successful. Our techs could assist you with clarifying the matter, so feel free to contact our support service.
Thank you.

Answer: 
Hello,

unfortunately, the default version of the Blog extension does not offer such a feature.
Although the extension does include Latest Posts widget, it is designed to be placed in the content area.
However, since the extension is open-source, you can probably add such dropdown via customization, and use the Latest Posts widget as a basis.
Thank you.

Answer: 
Hello Santanu,

first of all, we would suggest that you try re-installing the extension (do not forget to flush the store cache after the installation).
If it does not help, we recommend that you check the special thread at our Forum.
Please, note that we do not support the Community Edition extension free of charge, so if you would like our technical team to investigate the problem for you, you will need to pay for the support package.
Thank you.

Hi,

[1] As noted, post.html needs to be edited in this case. Unfortunately we do not provide instructions on customizing our products, as all of them are open-source. In case you would like our specialists to apply the changes, please submit a ticket in our Helpdesk using the contact form on our website.

[2] Unfortunately the module does not comprise the described feature out of the box, a customization would be required in this case.
