Well for those of you who have a custom theme placed outside the /frontend/default package (eg. /frontend/base/YOURTHEME or /frontend/YOURPACKAGE/YOURTHEME ) and you get blog blank page here are the steps: 1. Copy app/design/frontend/default/default/layout/aw_blog.xml to your theme layout folder 2. Copy app/design/frontend/default/default/template/aw_blog to your theme template folder 3. Copy skin/frontend/default/default/aw_blog to your theme skin folder 4. Flush the magento cache Enjoy! May 25, 2011
Hi there. I just installed your ext and I found that all theme, layout etc files are stored in frontend/default/default. We use our personal created package, so I think you should put the files in frontend/base/default. In this way your ext will be compatible with all custom created packages. Just a thought :) May 25, 2011
Right, does this actually work? I've installed it created posts and there not showing on the front end when i go to /blog ! The title doesn't even show May 15, 2011
Hi! I just tried this extension, i installed it using magento connect onto a 1.5.0.1 magento system. I then went thru the downloader, updated-upgraded my magento extensions that said there was an upgrade to 1.5.1 available. Then my site was 503 error and all i could access was the magento connect. I uninstalled the AW_Blog extension and my site returned to its previous state. I am highly interested in this extension, was wondering when a stable 1.5.1 version will be out. April 26, 2011
Magento 1.5.0.1 not install。 notice: Checking dependencies of packages CONNECT ERROR: Package 'AW_Blog' is invalid './skin/adminhtml/default/default/aw_all/css/window.css' already exists April 23, 2011
Great extension! Installed without any issues through the Connect Manager....http://www.themorningdewfarm.com/ One question: How would I create custom meta description for the main blog page, I see where you can edit the title tag but no description. Any help would be greatly appreciated:) April 8, 2011
This is Great! April 4, 2011
Thank you for the great extension. I wish it worked Magento 1.4.2 with new template(theme). I can't ask about this in your forum, can I? March 23, 2011
