RE: Redmine Blog Plugin - Added by Akiko Takano about 10 years ago

Hello.
I've installed Blog plugin and it's so useful for our members.

But I have a few question and requests.

1. Question about permission:

 Anonymous user can see Blog contents via index or tag when I unchecked 
 "view blog" flag to Anonymous user. But anonymous user can not access 
 to each blog item via show acction.
 Is this expected work?
 I hope only autholized users enabled to access blog contents.

2. RSS feed:

 I foud some lines to feed in blogs_controller.rb and I trued to access 
 with the parameter for feed, such as "format=atom", but I could not 
 see the result.
 Has this feature been not implemented yet?

I'm sorry if I have misunderstood about this plugin's use.

RE: Redmine Blog Plugin - Added by w Li almost 10 years ago

I just installed 0.0.4. This plugin is awesome!

but one thing that bugs me the most now is that all blog posts are kinda visually hard tell apart on the blog page. They adhere to each too closely. A clear boundary or box between each post would make it look nicer.

Also, on the front blog page, it would be better if it only shows a small part of each post in case some posts are too long

Thanks,

I have a new version of plugin. There are a special "macros" {{more}}, that implements described functionality. All that bellow it in post will be cut out in "index" action.

In this version RSS is implemented too.

Hi,

I've installed Redmine Blogs 0.6 (running Redmine 0.8.4) and followed the instructions on how to install it.
I've setup the permissions in the Administration section, but it doesn't seem to be working. When I go to http://projects.example.com/blogs I get an internal server error (500)

There is no error description in your post, it can be found in your log/production.log.

You can change line №29 in vendor/plugins/redmine_blogs/init.rb:

menu :application_menu, :blogs, { :controller => 'blogs', :action => 'index' }, :caption => 'Blogs'

instead application_menu you can use top_menu, project_menu or account_menu.

How to connect with another blog page, such as syntax [[blog_page]]

RE: Redmine Blog Plugin - Added by Andrew Chaika almost 10 years ago

WenSong Zhou wrote:

Like any other link in textile:

"My blog post 1":http://www.my-redmine-example.com/blogs/show/1

But you can use links to projects wikis:
[[ProjectName:PageName]]

Trying Blogs 0.0.6 on RM 0.8.4
Clicking "Blogs" gives me "Application error. Rails application failed to start properly"

The rest of Redmine (and all the plugins) run just fine.

What do I do?
Thanks!

Check your Redmine log. If you're getting some sort of database error regarding a table not being found: try re-installing the plug-in. This happened with our installation. Deleting the plugin, re-installing it, re-raking it, rebooting Redmine resolved it.

Your Redmine log should give you the specific Application error and point you in the right direction at the very least.

RE: Redmine Blog Plugin - Added by Luca Pireddu almost 10 years ago

I don't think the other_formats_links method has made it into the stable branch yet. I don't see it defined in app/helpers/application_helper.rb. For I got the page to display by changing in redmine_blogs/app/views/blogs/index.rhml the lines

<% other_formats_links do |f| %>
        <%= f.link_to 'Atom', :url => { :key => User.current.rss_key } %>
        <%= f.link_to 'RSS', :url => { :key => User.current.rss_key } %>
<% end %>

to

<p class="other-formats">
  <%= link_to 'Atom', :url => { :key => User.current.rss_key } %>
  <%= link_to 'RSS', :url => { :key => User.current.rss_key } %>
</p>

I haven't tested whether the feed links actually work though.

RE: Redmine Blog Plugin - Added by W. BM almost 10 years ago

Hi all,

I finally got the plugin working somehow, version 0.0.6, after inserting the code-snippet above from Luca Pireddu.
All rights are set up as described in this thread, but I still can't get the plugin to work correctly.
I'm running redmine on a virtual Win2k Server (64bit) and it took me a while to set up Rails to run Redmine.
So, the Blog-Plugin ist linked in the application menu and I don't get the internal error message.

There's no "new post" button though.
What am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance...

RE: Redmine Blog Plugin - Added by Luca Pireddu almost 10 years ago

I was puzzled too. You have to log in as an administrator and edit Roles and Permissions. You'll find new settings for commenting, viewing and managing blogs.

About this plugin, would it be difficult to include the blogs' content in the search engine?

RE: Redmine Blog Plugin - Added by Maic Haubitz over 9 years ago

Hi Folks.

I just tried to translate the plugin into German. I created two files "de.yml" (copies of "en.yml") in the following folders:
  • redmine_blogs/lang
  • redmine_blogs/config/locales

Unfortunately, the frontend still shows the names of the labels (e.g. "label_blog_plural") instead of the appropriate texts. Any ideas?

Reagrds,
Maic

RE: Redmine Blog Plugin - Added by Simon Romans over 9 years ago

Hi,

Can this blog be setup so an Email is sent when a new blog is added.

Even better you can watch a blog and emails are sent if someone comments on that blog.

RE: Redmine Blog Plugin - Added by Daniel Hazelbaker over 9 years ago

Does this plugin work with the latest SVN? I am currently running 0.8.5.devel.2924 and am having errors. To start with, on first load everything is fine. On second load, I get an exception. I edited the lib/application_helper_global_patch.rb and commented out the unloadable line. Then the site worked. Until I actually added a blog entry. Once I added a blog entry I again got exceptions, at that point I decided not continue tracking down problems until I checked if 0.0.6 should work with the latest SVN or not. If yes, I will post the second error.

Issue solved. Another restart of the redmine services helped in this matter.
