News Plugin for Refinery CMS
Refinery's news engine allows you to post updates to the news section of your website.
Refinery CMS "core" engine version 2.0.0 or later.
Include the latest gem into your Refinery CMS application's Gemfile:
gem "refinerycms-news", '~> 2.1.0'
Then type the following at command line inside your Refinery CMS application's root directory:
bundle install rails generate refinery:news rake db:migrate rake db:seed
Assuming you've already overridden the homepage view:
$ rake refinery:override view=refinery/pages/home
You can render the
recent_postspartial. However, you will need to set the recent News items manually, since this is normally handled in the News::Items controller:
To modify the number of items per page for the news items index without affecting the archive page you must override the method in the controller that sets
@itemsfor the index:
Currently the method body is:
ruby @items = Item.published.translated.page(params[:page])
pageconvenience method needs to be replaced with
per_pagepassed as an option. Add a decorator for the items controller with the following contents:
module Refinery::News ItemsController.class_eval do def find_published_news_items @items = Item.published.translated.paginate :page => params[:page], :per_page => 8 end end end
Type this command at your project root to override the default front end views:
$ rake refinery:override view=refinery/news/items/* Copied view template file to app/views/refinery/news/items/_recent_posts.html.erb Copied view template file to app/views/refinery/news/items/index.html.erb Copied view template file to app/views/refinery/news/items/show.html.erb etc.
To get RSS for your entire site, insert this into the head section of your layout after installing:
