You need have installed Symfony2 2.3 with Composer or have a composer.json file

###1) Add to composer.json in the root require key

"mv/mv-blog-bundle": "~1.3.0@stable"

I deeply recommend to use symlinks for assets to non expose your images to be deleted

You can do it by adding this option to your "extra" key in composer.json

"symfony-assets-install": "symlink"

If you are using an exotic OS like Windows who don't support this option, you are wrong, framework made for you is .NET

###2) Add to your AppKernel.php

new Mv\BlogBundle\MvBlogBundle(),
new Ivory\CKEditorBundle\IvoryCKEditorBundle(),
new Knp\Bundle\PaginatorBundle\KnpPaginatorBundle(),
new FM\ElfinderBundle\FMElfinderBundle(),

###3) Add to routing.yml

For front pages

    resource: "@MvBlogBundle/Resources/config/routing.yml"
    prefix: /blog

For admin pages

    resource: "@MvBlogBundle/Resources/config/routing_admin.yml"
    prefix: /badp

###4) See Resources/Example/security.yml.example to configure access to the admin panel

This is for dev tests only.

Ensure you have in your AppKernel.php

new JMS\AopBundle\JMSAopBundle(),
new JMS\SecurityExtraBundle\JMSSecurityExtraBundle(),

###5) See Resources/Example/config.yml.example

This bundle send mails, a parameter is required for the email from.

Ensure you have in your AppKernel.php

new Symfony\Bundle\SwiftmailerBundle\SwiftmailerBundle(),

###6) Import config bundle in your config.yml

    - { resource: "@MvBlogBundle/Resources/config/config.yml" }

Be carrefull, may be you have already the "imports" key

Run update with composer

php path/to/composer.phar update

Dump assetic (for production)

php app/console assetic:dump

In future it will be this script in root composer.json



Read this "YUI Compressor" unless picture management won't work in production mode

###7) You have to implement (if you don't have yet) an user management

You have access to admin panel in dev mode to see it, but you can't keep it in production mode. To have routes for dev mode, you have to add in your app routing_dev.yml:

    resource: "@MvBlogBundle/Resources/config/routing_dev.yml"
    prefix: /badp

ex: FOSUserBundle can help you.

Surcharge app/Resources/MvBlogBundle/views/_logout-link.html.twig to have your logout link.
See original in Mv/BlogBundle/Resources/views/_logout-link.html.twig

You can also surcharge base.admin-layout.html.twig & base.layout.html.twig to change CSS, JS or this templates inherit from (ex: to integrate your header, footer or what you need)

###8) Build Database


app/console doctrine:schema:update

or to have dump sql:

app/console doctrine:schema:update --dump-sql

###9) Blog is accessible on /blog and Admin panel on /badp

RSS version is on /blog/flux.rss

If you have an error when you try to access to image management, ensure your web/bundles/mvblog/images is writable by server
