This module is based on DoctrineORMModule and be sure that you have already configured database connection.

Create database tables with command line tool provided by DoctrineORMModule:

./vendor/bin/doctrine-module orm:schema-tool:update


Post identity encryption for hyperlinks

Encryption is supported by hashids/hashids and have to be configured by copy ./vendor/mamuz-blog/config/crypt.local.php.dist to ./config/autoload/crypt.local.php. Be sure that this file is not under version control. The only thing you have to do is changing salt value to any complex string.

Default configuration

Besides configuration for identity encryption this module is usable out of the box, but you can overwrite default configuration by adding a config file in ./config/autoload directory. For default configuration see module.config.php


Listings of posts and tags includes a pagination feature, which seperates views to a default range. Default range is overwritable by adding a config file in ./config/autoload directory.


Post listing is provided by route blogPublishedPosts and default range is two items.


Tag listing is provided by route blogTags and default range is 10 items.

Creating a new Post

Create an entity in MamuzBlogPost repository and tag it in related MamuzBlogTag.

Admin Module to provide an interface for that is planned.


If routing to a dedicated post found by published flag and encrypted identity is successful, post content will be responsed in a new view model rendered as markdown, otherwise it will set a 404 status code to the http response object.
