Blog View Archive

Hi to all,

I have the divRight panel that is displayed in all of my pages, however when I clicked on a blog content,

The right panel disappears. Is it possible to retain everything in my right panel even when I go to the blog's archive?

Any suggestion please. Should I modify my layout.master?

Thanks!

Hi Tomas,

There is an option in the Blog Settings, "Show Page Right Content in Blog", that will allow the content in the divRight to show up.

HTH,
Joe D.

Hi,

I can see there are options for Left and Right content, but no option for Top or Bottom . . . 

is there a work around to get a Footer to display on a Blog archive page ?

Hi,

Add these to your user.config file:

<add key="Blog:ShowTopContent" value="true"/>

<add key="Blog:ShowBottomContent" value="true"/>

Most skins don't have top and bottom therefore it is implemented as config settings instead of blog settings.

Hope that helps,

Joe

Thanks for the quick reply Joe,

Unfortunately your suggestion didn't display the bottom content on the blog feature page, I have right & left no problem.

I guess I'll have to add the footer to the layout.master or do you have any other suggestions ?

many thanks for your time

Re: Blog View Archive

What version of mojoPortal are you using?

This was added about 14 months ago.

The page where the blog is would have to have content added to the bottom content section and this setting would make it show that on the blog post detail page.

I'm using version 2.3.8.1 of MojoPortal, blog version 0.0.2.4

The initial blog page displaying the list of blogs displays the footer correctly, just nothing when you view each individual blog.

I have tried using the "ramblingsoul-5contentpanes" just to check my skin wasn't the problem.

Re: Blog View Archive

If you edit user.config changes there are not automatically detected so you have to touch Web.config to make it notice the new settings.

Currently it only works on the blog detail page, for the next release I will make it also work on the category and archive pages.

Hope that helps,

Joe

Re: Blog View Archive

Hi,

I've upgraded mojoportal to the latest version and trying to show alternate panels in blog pages. it works correctly in blog post view, in viewcategory page, but in viewarchive it does not show any additional content: no top/bottom, no right panel. Is it only my configuration problem or some error happened in latest release?

Thanks,

Victor

Re: Blog View Archive

Hi Victor,

Can you try to create the problem on our demo site? If it still exists there I will investigate it and fix it for the new release coming soon, but I think it may already be fixed in the repository, the demo site is running a recent build.

Thanks,

Joe

Re: Blog View Archive

Thanks Victor!

This is now fixed in our source code repository so it will be fixed in the new release which should ship next week. Lots of other improvements in the blog also including support for media attachments for podcasting and a new improved internal comment system.

Best,

Joe
