1.3.2 Update Builds on New Features

A new minor update to CataBlog was released last night. This version simply builds on the new template system and the multiple page catalog navigation. New configuration options now allow you to change the labeling of the next and previous links and hide the extra navigation statistics. A new CataBlog Template View was created for archive pages (category, search, lists) and a new token %EXCERPT% was created for use in this template. You may set how many characters the excerpt has in the CataBlog options under the Description Tab. Hope this new enhancements help people make better use of the new features in CataBlog.

Cheers! 🙂

      Randi,

      You may find the store template in the new CataBlog Templates Admin Panel, it is in the Admin Menu under CataBlog. There are now four views that may be used in CataBlog, including default, single, archive and store. You may read more about them and how to use the new template system at Making Custom Templates.

    Hi Zach,

    Just updated for a client’s site but I got this warning message. Could you help me out?

    Warning: copy(/home/davkuk1/musqueamgolf.com/golf/wp-content/uploads/catablog/templates/archive.htm) [function.copy]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/davkuk1/musqueamgolf.com/golf/wp-content/plugins/catablog/lib/CataBlog.class.php on line 2595

      Go to the new CataBlog Templates panel in WP Admin. You might be missing some core template files, if you are the interface will warn you. You may manually copy any missing file from this folder:

      /wp-content/plugins/catablog/templates/views/

      into this folder, your CataBlog Installation Templates folder

      /wp-content/uploads/catablog/templates/

    Isn’t there a ‘read more’ function? the excerpt just hides some text and there is no way to show the hidden text.

    thanks.

    • Zach says:

      There are different templates for different page types. Simply add a read more link with the permalink token to the archive template, along with using the excerpt token. Then in the single template use the description token.

    • Zach says:

      Here is an example read more link

      <a href="%PERMALINK%">Read More</a>
