Q&A

How do I display some of the news in the right block rather than the title alone?

I have installed the extension and moved the files over to the custom theme's folders. I got the news block to display in the right column. I would like to display some of the news article in that right column block rather than the title alone. How do I enable that?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great extension Great extension, it works fine on magento 1.9.0.1 CE However, it works only on default package / default theme. You should upgrade it to the correct routing. If you have custom package/theme, make sure you copy the following folders and files layout/clnews.xml , template/clnews , skin->css/clnews, skin->css/commercelab, skin->images/clnews to your custom folders.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great with 1.8.1 CE I have installed the News extension with 1.8.1 CE and it works great. Though I ran into two issues ("404", embeding block-code) straight after the installation, they were quickly resolved by the CommerceLab support. Actually, those two were non-issues. For the 404 I only had to log-out and log-in (shame on me...) and the block-code has to be embedded on a page within the CMS section (not the categories). Thanks again guys, for this extension and the support!!
