Blog Module and Alternate Pane

I'm using the blog module with a skin with an Alternate Pane. The Alternate Pane content shows up on the first blog page (post listing) but it doesn't show up on individual post pages. I expected the Alternate Pane content to also appear on the individual post pages as well.

Is this a limitation of the blog module? Any work-around?

Thanks,
Kevin

Each of the blog post pages is dynamically generated, so as far as I know, the only way to make extra content appear on them is to add it to the layout.master (in which case it will appear on every page of the site), or add it to the "Sidebar Upper Content" or "Sidebar Lower Content" sections in the Extra Sidebar Content section of the blog settings.

I've added a wish list item for this as a feature request in our project tracker.

Best,

just in case someone is looking for it - now it is available as 

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

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

Re: Blog Module and Alternate Pane

Hi Joe,

is this setting configured on demo mojoportal site? I have problems locally on version 2.3.9.4 - the alt panels do not show on blog post pages and also they do not show on demo portal. any settings changed?

Regards,

Victor

Re: Blog Module and Alternate Pane

Hi Victor,

I confirm this is a bug in the latest version. I will fix this for the next release.

However in the mean time there is a workaround if you add these attributes on <portal:StyleSheetCombiner ..HideEmptyAlt1="false" HideEmptyAlt2="false"

Thanks,

Joe
