After a couple of hours I can not configure the Blog addon. After following the directions in the knowledge Base, my Blog just shows a blank page. Without configuring the Blog layout my posts show in full. I would like them to show as described by CS-Cart as shown in the attached image so the Blog image shows with a short description and the link to Read More...
Any ideas on what I am missing? Thanks for any help.
Thanks for helping me out eComLabs. I am actually a client of yours and you performed the upgrade for me to 4.3.3. I have done as you suggested numerous times. I just get a blank page on my Blog. What I did notice is that my layout choices differ from those on the Cs-Cart demo site. My layout has three choices instead of only two as shown below.
I also had to add the Blog layout because it did not show up on the layout page when the Blog addon was installed. Do you think reinstalling the Blog addon will help or is there another issue? Thanks again for your help.
when we create the parent "Blog" it shows here at the top if we do not hide it yet i notice on the demo store it is not "hidden" yet does not show. Maybe it is because we just created it and the "timeout" for "recent posts" hasn't not passed yet? We didn't realize the tree structure when we started the blog articles and have just recently added "Blog" and set it as root and all other articles to "Blog" as parent.
structurally, it works fine as the bread crumbs are "Home/Blog" as it should be. We are trying to not show the parent article named "Blog" in Recent Posts and don't understand why it's "active" on the demo store but we have to hide it in ours to prevent it from showing.
