NOTE: If you need Tag Field plugin integration install it first. Otherwise installer will skip tag field in blog entry class definition. Of course you can add tag field manualy later.

Snippets

Plugin provides some snippets that you can place anywhere on your site (eg. sidebar, mainpage):

  • latest entries (Blog/snippet/latest)
  • categories list (Blog/snippet/categories)
  • calendar (Blog/snippet/calendar)
  • links to rss/atom feed (Blog/snippet/feed)

Blog snippet types

Customization

You can add/modify/remove entry/category data fields using default pimcore Object Classes interface.

You can overwrite any of default view scripts by copying Blog/views/scripts/:controller/:action.php into website/views/scripts/blog/:controller/:action.php. Your custom view script will be used automatically instead of default one. This will allow you to update plugin without loosing your project markup.
