Sometimes, all you want is a small blog-like display of a series of news for your xt:Commerce4 webshop. With this small plugin, you can do so. Free of charge.
After installing the plugin, create a content block called news or blog, and add/assign a few content items to this content block. In the Plugin configuration, enter the appropriate BlockId. Additionally, you can choose a headline for your blogpage in the plugin configuration. So far, this works only for one content block.
Your blog is displayed under the following URL: index.php?page=sv_blog
Alternatively, a blog layout of all content elements of block with id 11 is displayed with the following URL: index.php?page=sv_blog&blockId=11
Enable "short versions" of blog contents if you want to trim lengthy content elements. A Read more link is displayed in that case. Attention: this option may cause trouble if you are using html inside content elements.
Note that after the plugin installation, content items will have a date field in the editor. This is set to current date for new items. The date is displayed in the blog layout if in reasonable range.
