About the Developer

This extension was developed by and is supported by MagPleasure

Blog Pro 5 5 7 7
Excellent Blog Platform I've used both WordPress and the AW Blog solutions and without a doubt Blog Pro exceeds the functionality of AW Blog by a long-shot and does everything that a "blog" should do... enable you to post content using good SEO practices, excellent social media integration and commenting management. Very easy to use, the version I'm using isn't fully responsive yet, however, it's almost using Magento's 1.9 responsive theme there is only a few items that need minor adjustment needed. This is the perfect blogging solution for Magento by a long shot and the support is excellent. July 13, 2014
The perfect blog for magento Later reviewing many different options (wordpress integration, free blogs, ...), I came to blog pro. It has all the benefits of getting visitors used to your shop interface. And the bloggers used to the magento working environment and making all work with one same system. Also it keeps perfectly the shop responsive design for all the posts. It can be translated perfectly and have some cool features like indication the pageviews, google authorship and many options for sharing the posts in social networks. And that is not all. It has money back warranty and a first class customer's support that allow to make a reality all the features of this great product. Thank you. June 7, 2014
I'm new to Magento and made a basic mistake during installation. Igor fixed it straight away. Now looking forward to exploring the many features. Got to agree with jointedrail. The MagPleasure service is exceptional January 3, 2013
Love it! Worth every single penny I paid for this. I screwed up the install and had to send a support ticket in for help. I had a reply within minutes, I explained my problem and they took care of everything right away including logging into my site and fixing my screw up! After that they completed the install and replied back right away. If I could get service like this at even 10% of the places I do business, the world would be a better place! Huge thanks to Igor! November 10, 2012
Great extension, great support (friendly and efficient)... Nothing else to say except "Thank you!" July 9, 2012
To start with i want to say that i love your blog! But it missing some features that we need, when will the next version be out? Cheers June 2, 2012
Great extension and great technical support! May 22, 2012

Answer: 
Hello,

Thank you for your question. We going to add this in the on of future versions after Blog Pro 1.3. But not sure if this is really necessary. Actually some of our customers want this to make separated areas of blog. And we would prefer to add this first instead of Sub-Categories. Anyway, we will add some way to build few separated blogs per one site. And in the other hand we will add sub-categories but much later. Perhaps in half a year.

Thank you for your interest to our products.

With best regards,
Igor Goltsov

It seems that we need to give readers a motive to leave a comment. The usual one seems to be that they get a link back to their own site (personal or commercial).

Is this possible?

Can the rel attribute be set for all posts/any one post?

Thank you for the question,

The Blog Pro 1.2.3 is fully compatible with Magneto Enterprise 1.14 but the extension's template isn't 100% compatible with responsive style designs. We are going to release new responsive design of Blog Pro in the next version what will be available in a 2-3 weeks from the moment. Thank you for your interest to our products.

Sincerely,

Hi guys!

First of all, congratulations for your product!!
I think it’s a great aproach and everithing looks nice!

I noticed that the feature of sync my blog posts with my Facebook company page wall is not actualy present, right?

In this case, is not really a problem if after deploying the extension I have access to the posts database tables or something similar in order to develop this feature myself.

My main goal is to Optmize my content creator’s time avoiding the need to publish the same content several times.

Is it possible?

Does this extension now auto publish blog posts to FB and Twitter? Another user had a similar question and you mentioned it would be available in future versions. Can you confirm that this is now implemented. If so you have a customer.
