README

A module to provide added functionality to the default SilverStripe Blog Module and bring it more in line with competing blogging platforms. **Please Note most of these features are now available in silver stripe/blog 2.0 ** I'll leave this module for anyone stuck using the older blog module

Requirements

  • SilverStripe 3.1
  • silverstripe-blog module 1.0

Feature Overview

  • Custom Summaries for Blog Entries
  • Feature Image for Blog Entries
  • Enhanced Authors by Extending the Member Class ** Bio, Headshot and Social Media Profiles
  • RSS feeds of Tags

Configuration Options

The module adds a has_many/has_one relation between BlogEntry and Member. The Author drop down on BlogEntry is pulled from the 'content-author' member group by default. If you only have Default Admin you'll need to make sure you add that user to the content-author group. You can use any other member group by setting defaultGroup on BlogEntry in your config.yml to the desired group code.

BlogEntry:
  defaultGroup: 'content-authors'

Tag RSS Feed

The rss feed of any tag can be accessed via http://example.com/blogHolderTitle/tag/tagName/rss/
