Hi,

If I post an article the read more link shows up at the buttom, which means, at the overall blog page you see the whole article.

I was wondering if it's possible to place the read more link somewhere in the middle of the article.

Thank you.

Answer: 
Hey sseverien,

The read more will show at the bottom if you're not using the summary for each blog post, you can add the summary using a setting in the backend, or you can use a HTML comment <!--more--> in your content. at any point. To change the Read More text, add it into the comment (the same as Wordpress allows): <!--more More on this topic... -->

Or Are you talking about pagination on each blog post? Or splitting up the blog post into multiple pages?

We don't have that functionality yet, but we'll put it down as a feature request and include it at some point in a future release.

Thanks,
Neotheme Support

Answer: 
Hey Berna0588,

You can do this in 2 ways.

We recommend doing this in your local.xml in your theme. If you understand the layout xml,. you need to add this into your theme's local.

<default>
<reference name="top.links">
<action method="removeLinkByUrl"><url><url helper="neotheme_blog/getBlogUrl"/></url></action>
</reference>
</default>

The other (not recommended) option is to override the neotheme/blog.xml in your theme.

This requires a similar modification, of un-commenting the removeLinkByUrl action. or commenting the addLink Action

If you have trouble doing this, please submit a support ticket at support.neotheme.com and we'll help you out as best we can.

Thanks,
Neotheme Support

Answer: 
Hey uptown,

Please submit at ticket at https://support.neotheme.com/ about this.

Magento doesn't officially support PHP 5.4 yet (as far as I'm aware) so we haven't got that supported in the Magento Connect module. We haven't had a lot of problems with it running on 5.4 however, so we'd need to manually install it on your site.

Thanks,

Answer: 
Hey MatNeves,

To do that you'll need to use the layout xml appropriately but yes.

First add in a layout modification into the handle of where you want it to display as a child block:

<{{handle_you_want}}>
<reference name="{{block that has the .phtml as it's tempalte}}>
<block type="neotheme_blog/widget_post_selected" name="blog.post.selected.post" as="blogpost" template="neotheme/blog/post/detail.phtml">
<action method="setPostId">{{the Post ID you're after}}</action>
</reference>
</block>
</{{handle_you_want}}>

Then in your phtml file:
<?php echo $this->getChildHtml('blogpost'); ?>

If this isn't straightforward, we have a post on inserting and editing layout files here:

I installed this extension to my site and immediately was unable to see my site anymore
(Hazevaporizers.com) It went from being a fully finished site to only loading the the head and body tags. Therefore I uninstalled this plugin in hopes of my layout returning with no luck! I tried flushing my cache and checking the error logs with no issues being present.

Please help!

Answer: 
Hey biancavaporizer,

This is most likely to do with the Magento Connect Installer, please submit a support ticket at https://support.neotheme.com/ and we'll help you fix this is up as soon as we can.

If the Magento Connect Installer fails for whatever reason (regardless of the module you're trying to install) it can leave the a file "maintenance.flag" in the root on your installation. If that file is present, the site will show a 500 error, it's used to perform file and database changes.
