Magento 184.108.40.206 - this extension broke down ability to pass parameters in URI - search (?q=) and catalog mode (?mode=) was immediately down. Not recommended.

This is a good extension, but isn't free of bugs. For example, when trying to edit a news item, I received an error complaining about the way the store id was being passed (as an array rather than a string): Warning: htmlspecialchars() expects parameter 1 to be string, array given. This can be fixed: http://www.magentocommerce.com/boards/viewthread/54985/#t179770
Saved me a ton of time -- but you may need to do some finagling to get it to work perfectly!

the "Use Full Description Image" function is chosen/checked by default in setting, and you can't uncheck it. You are not allowed to unload image separately for short description but have to share the same one with full description. If you disable showing full description image, and set show short description image to be yes, the selected image will not appear on front page. How to fix this bug? Thanks!

If you'ved just installed this extension in your Magento and you receive the following error:
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_ENDFOREACH in app\design\frontend\default\default\template\clnews\list.phtml on line 73
This is what you need to do in order to fix the error.
Find the page app/design/frontend/default/default/template/clnews/list.phtml
Look through the lines of code and replace all instances of <? with <?php
That should fix the issue.

Great extension works great in v 1.6.2. I have one issue however which i would like to change. When i goto the news page from the frontend the page is on a secure page (https) my client asked if this can be a standard (http) page. how can i change this? is there a reason why the news page is down as secure.

Extension is working very well.
But I need a little help,
Is there a way to change the date format? From yy/mm/dd format to mm/dd/yy format ?
I didn't see an option in Backend,
Can you tell me which .PHTML file to edit and where to edit?

Love the extension. Just one thing I am missing - in admin / news list there is no overview in which category news are. You have to first click on the each news to see which category is selected. But we have alot of news in each category and it would be very useful if there was additional filter for category, like it is for Store view for example.
