realy great blog add on… only missing sharing functionalty…or is it possible to use standard share buttons from cs cart ?

there are some minor html errors … i hope it will be fixed in the future

The HTML errors are generated by the cs-cart engine and most of them are present in the original code, without the add-on.

There are a few posts about it on the forum.

The issues related with the add-on are fixed continuosly of course, thanks to anyone who contributed in it.

Anyway does not affect the cs-cart or the add-on functionality.

The demo is not working.

Checked the link with success, never was offline.

It was not working on September 22 at 7:30 or so. Otherwise I would not have taken the time to come here and try to help you out by letting you know it was down.

You're welcome.

We didn't find any downtime in the logs, anyway I appreciate your effort.

cs cart 4.2 have corrected al the html errors…are you 100% sure that the addon is not producing issues??? and the social sharing option? is it possible to use cs cart fb,tweeter sharing in the blog addon? if yes…please enable it on the demo

thanks in advance

The site is running under cs-cart 4.1.2, unfortunately in this version the HTML errors were not fixed in the cs-cart engine.

Just reched the add-on, because each bug report is important (thank you), we didn't find any HTML errors in the source code. The social sharing option isn't supported presently.

Thank you for your interest.

What is the value of a blog when pwolle don't share it?

All ideas are welcomed of course. If you want to contribute in the add-on improvement you can send us your ideas, suggestions on our webpage. Thank you.
