Q&A

Reach News From Frontend Menu

Hello, I've created a category which appears as a button in my menu. The directory of the category is ".../news". Same is the the News-Site-URL which I configured in the Extension configuration. But I see only blank page. How can I fix that? regards
Asked by: dieych
If you're trying it out like I did, and you're using a custom module, then you have to follow the above steps to fix this as mentioned in the custom module question. It should have been pretty common sense that you were testing this out from a base installation of the script, which does come with a test news item. So, it should be assumed that this troubleshooting step (making sure a news item exists) was performed. Anyway, here's the fix Just copy the next files 1) app/design/frontend/default/default/layout/clnews.xml to app/design/frontend/[your_package]/default/layout/clnews.xml 2) app/design/frontend/default/default/template/clnews to app/design/frontend/[your_package]/default/template/clnews 3) skin/frontend/default/default/css/clnews to skin/frontend/[your_package]/default/css/clnews 4) skin/frontend/default/default/css/commercelab/treeview to skin/frontend/[your_package]/default/css/commercelab/treeview 5) skin/frontend/default/default/images/clnews to skin/frontend/[your_package]/default/images/clnews

how to show short description image uploaded from WYSYWIG editor in front end
Asked by: Amit K Gupta
There's a drop-down option called 'show image' just underneath the image upload button. Simply select 'Yes' (and don't forget to set the image sizes too - guidelines on this are in the settings section).

How to fix "404 Error Page not found." in admin control panel
Asked by: trantuyenpro335
This could be fixed by the next way. Just log out from the admin panel and then log in again. It's a common way for all Magento extensions in order to refresh admin permissions after the module installation.

Problems with Magento 1.9.2.2

First problem was the latest news block that was otherwise running stopped displaying anything at all - this was fixed by adding clnews/news and setting it to allowed in blocks section of the Permissions settings menu. Second problem is that the news detail page does not display anything anymore - not even a 404 error! We could not fix it at all even after adding clnews/newsitem, clnews/rss, clnews/settings block names in the Block permissions (referring to first problem above). This was working prior to the upgrade.

Adding category stopped working. How to solve this error?

Hi, from last past few days adding of new category through magento control panel stopped working. For example, after clicking the button Add Category by filling Title, URL Key and Sort Order, it is redirecting to category listing without showing newly created category.

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!!
