News Manager (updated)
(2014-07-29, 21:45:26)singha-cz Wrote: Hi Carlos, is there a way/function to get post_content and/or post_date and use it in my own post template? Something like nm_post_content, nm_post_date?

I intend to add more template functions like the ones you suggest.

Maybe what you want to accomplish can already be done with the use of some custom settings (showFields, markupTitle, etc.) and a bit of CSS. Could you give me an example of the layout you need? (here or by private mail)

If not, I'll post some workaround until those functions are available in a future version of the plugin.

Hi Carlos,

I've just installed your wonderful plugin, which is exactly what I'm looking for. There is just one important thing I don't know how to realize, it's a multi-lingual switch for two languages. Or is there a way to integrate the i18n_base plugin which provides a language swith.

Thank you very much!

News Manager (updated) is still/currently a one-language plugin.

With some workarounds (using tags for langs, some conditionals in the template, optionally some .htaccess tweaking, etc.) you can emulate a multilanguage news site with it (TeeJay does in his site http://tomasjanecek.cz/ - I can search for the post where he explains how) but it's a rather advanced setup, and also has some limitations.

For multilanguage news/blog I think the best option is I18N Search and/or I18N Special Pages.
Another good one might be the Matrix Blog plugin, but I'm not sure if it's stable enough (and if it's still being mantained).
The Pages & Comments plugin might also be worth a look (though you'd probably have to use different pages for each language).

Hey Carlos,
thanks for your support! Now I'm trying to use i18n Search/special pages. "angryboy"
http://get-simple.info/forums/showthread.php?tid=3235
has developed a very interesting solution you probably know, which does exactly what I'm looking for but I'm still having problems. His archiving function is providing monthly links to url, for example: http://aussenhui.de/sophia/blog/&tags=_cre_201408+blog
But when I'm changing the _cre_date tag in the url manualy to 201407 or something, it is still showing all the posts tagged "blog".

Kind regards
Hu

Hello Carlos!

This guy added multilanguage-support for an old version of newsmanager:
http://get-simple.info/forums/showthread.php?tid=2398.
It adds a field for determination of the language of the news.
Unfortunately this version is outdated and doesnt work on newer setups of get-simple, i18n, etc...
Could you have a look at this guys changes and if it is possible to adapt the changes to the actual version of news_manager?

Hi there Carlos. Wonderful plugin as always. I have a question hopefully isn't too hard to correct.

I'm using the NM and when I input the tags and add a comma like instructed it does not show on the front end of the site.

For example:

if I input

tag1, tag2, tag3

it shows as
tag1 tag 2tag3

on the front end. Is there a way to show the commas on the front-end?

I'm using the NM 2.4.4

Thanks!!!

I am assuming it outputs as html lists, you can use css after content: rules maybe.
The commas are delimiters, they are not part of the tags.

All good then. Thanks Shawn! I was able to use the after and the last-chiild to make this work.

Of course carlos probably has a custom output function you can call to get the tags in code.
like implode(',',$tagsarray) or something.

Since version 3.0 you can have a custom tag separator for the front-end.

For a comma and a space (instead of just a space), enable Custom Settings and enter:
Code:
tagSeparator ", "

Hello Carlos!

I wish i could use multiple tags in nm_show_tag_page() like
Code:
nm_show_tag_page('_en, my-tag', $index=NMFIRSTPAGE, $filter=true);

greets from Austria,

nm_show_tag_page() displays links for pagination under the list of posts (prev/.../next, numbered or older/newer). What do you think those links should be like, if multiple tags were supported?

Hello Carlos!

Thank you for your reply - in the meantime i figured out how to
customize news_manager_addons to fit my needs.
Code:
nm_list_recent_by_tag(array('_de', 'my-tag'));

I think tags should be comma-separated in the url like
Code:
http://www.domain.com/news/tags/_de,my-tag&page=2
- but i didnt think it through any further as the news_manager_addons does exatly what I needed now.

An user has contributed a Finnish translation for News Manager (3.0 or older). It will be included in the next NM version.
In the meantime, anyone interested can be get the language file here:

As per xxdex's request, here's a complementary plugin that adds a date/time picker to News Manager's post editor:

News Manager DateTimePicker 0.1 beta

[edit: now available in Extend]

Really awesome plug-in Carlos!

As others before me I would like to be able to have different news feeds for different languages. The alternatives I've found don't execute as well as News Manager does though Sad

Would it maybe be possible to have one more News Manager plug-in bur named differently? That way they could each point to a seperate page on the site...

A couple years ago user vixrealitum posted a News Manager 2.2.4 clone to allow having another instance:
http://get-simple.info/forums/showthread...8#pid20188
The attachment is no longer available, but I've just made a new clone with that same name, though based on News Manager 3.0:

Article Manager 3.0 beta - download

Note: Sidebar/front-end functions and css styles for this plugin must be prefixed by am_ instead of nm_, same for gsconfig settings (AM* instead of NM*), etc.
