Do you wish use admin panel of word press, create post on them, but posts must be displayed in CS-Cart? You could create posts in "Power Blog" add-on. If you describe how do you see functionality, we will consider suggestion.

Just two quick questions.

1. Does this addon support multi-stores? different blog posts for each store?

2. The posts store in the same tables of pages or in it's own table? If I uninstall this addon, will all articles be removed?

yes
the wordpress looks like it is in the shopping cart. when viewers come to view the post on wordpress, they still in the shopping cart front store but not go to the individual sub-domain.
when they view, they can view the products by the way.
i hope that this can explain more

Yes, it does. You can create posts for each store separately.

2. The posts store in the same tables of pages or in it's own table? If I uninstall this addon, will all articles be removed?


Separate table is created for blog posts. If you uninstall add-on, all posts will be removed too.

I bought this mod and have worked with Rusian at Cat-Power to improve it. He's been very willing to listen to users, fix bugs and make improvements quickly. I would recommend this not only as a "blog", but as a way to organize articles.

It does not use standard content pages, but sets up a separate system of categories and posts. This is good and bad in that you can't easily back up your posts. I think they were going to improve this in the future. What I have done is create the posts in regular content pages that are hidden and then copied them over. I ten also have a block of regular content pages and links as well.

They've given the user a very flexible way of creating their own layouts and most of the mod titles, etc can be altered in the templates and languages section.

Very fast and flexible way to create a nice library of info, and I appreciated their good service. A bargain at his price too.

I purchased this addon. It works great as a simple blog.

There are two things missing for SEO: the social share buttons, and canonical URLs.

I hope this addon can be improved to include these features.
