Not (easily) possible right now, I'm afraid.
May be possible in the future, when I refactor the plugin a bit. (I'll take your suggestion into account.)

In the meantime, I suggest you enable pagination on your tag pages so that they don't list all posts for a tag.

Carlos, please add the ability to place excerpts of videos from YouTube and Vimeo.

Right now you could use rich excerpts: enter more 1 in Custom Settings and put an <hr> (or <hr />, <hr class="something" />, ...) tag after your video.

Hi, All.
I think i need some help...

I added Grill theme to my site which includes News Manager v3.0. It all works okay.
But when i update plugin to the v3.2.3, i get problems (I updated directly with Updater plugin.):

1. images in posts are not shown anymore
2. when i try to edit news post - i click select file for post image, it gives me internal server error.


I backed to v3.0 now and again it works okay (both problems appear only in latest version...)

My site blog is here http://www.jaya.si/simplecms/blog/ now it works because i reverted it to v3.0

Any clues?

Thank you and have a nice day!

Carlos will be along soon I expect.


I don't think I had any issue with upgrading News Manager using that template, but making other changes to the site or the plugin will often require an update to the htaccess file in the root of your site. See the bottom of the NM Settings page in the admin of your site.

Can you check if, after updating the plugin, there's a .htaccess file in the plugins/news_manager/browser folder?
(That file should contain Allow from all)

This feature will be available in version 3.3.
You can already test it - I've just posted a new beta version

Hi, Carlos.
Sorry for late reply - i tried updating it manually today and it works without problem. the .htaccess file is the way it should be and all works flawlessly.

BTW, in the single post view i havent found the option to make the post image clickable for original size image... Am i missing something or is this the way it should be?

Thanks for such a fast reply - i missed get the notification... Undecided - now i am subscribed!

Best Regards,
Klemen

There's no option for this in 3.2, but I'm adding it to 3.3 (via custom setting imageLink).
Check the latest beta 31 if you wish.

Hi Carlos,

Very very nice plugin, thanks a lot.

Perhaps i have missed something ! But when we are on a single post it seem News Manager thinks we are on parent page. 

so canonical tag is the URL of the parent post and not of the single post. For example on http://localhost/getsimple/blog/post/news-2  the canonical tag is <link rel="canonical" href="http://localhost/getsimple/blog/" /> instead of <link rel="canonical" href="http://localhost/getsimple/blog/post/news-2" />

   

So how to do to have a single page with a specific canonical. I have seen thread about this but without any solutions.

Regards, 
And keep improving.
It's good

Canonical URLs for single post pages:

In your template, change this line:
Code:
<?php get_header(); ?>
by this:
Code:
<?php
    if (nm_is_single()):
      get_header(false);
      echo "\n",'<link rel="canonical" href="',nm_post_url(false),'" />';
    else:
      get_header();
    endif;
  ?>
(If you use I18N, replace get_header by get_i18n_header)

So nice that's exaclty what I want. Thanks a lot.

Hi Carlos,

I have another question about URL for articles (single post) and category (tag page).

1. If I add a tag for example "analytics" to an article so I have, for category page, an URL like this "http://localhost/getsimple/blog/tag/analytics". Is it possible to modify (perhaps .htaccess) to have an URL without /tag like this http://localhost/getsimple/blog/analytics ?

2. And I have for article an URL like this http://localhost/getsimple/blog/post/news-2. Is it possible (again perhaps with .htaccess) to have a URL with name of category (/analytics) instead of /post like this http://localhost/getsimple/blog/analytics/news-2 

or if the point 2 is not possible how to delete /post from the URL to have http://localhost/getsimple/blog/news-2

Regards,
Frédéric

Thanks, Carlos. I'll try it in the following week.

I need to move News Manager to be under its own menu tab, rather than it being under the Pages tab. Can anyone point me in an easy direction to save me from having to work out a mod to the NM plugin or having to read all 49 pages in this topic to see if it has been done before :-)

@Carlos,

nice workaround for canonical urls, can you please tell me, how to achieve this also on nm_is_tag and nm_is_archive ? because they return root url too

@BeaneB - for point 2 - it's possible, just RTFM Wink I also removed "post" from urls, but I don't see a good reason in removing "tag" part, how would you then distinguish between list of posts with tag and post itself ?

Put this in your theme's functions.php file:
Code:
function custom_get_header_nm() {
 $canonical = false;
 if (nm_is_single())
   $canonical = nm_post_url(false);
 elseif (nm_is_tag())
   $canonical = nm_get_url('tag').rawurlencode(nm_single_tag_title('','',false));
 elseif (nm_is_archive())
   $canonical = nm_get_url('archive').intval($_GET[NMPARAMARCHIVE]);
 if ($canonical) {
   get_header(false);
   echo "\n",'<link rel="canonical" href="',$canonical,'" />';
 } else {
   get_header();
 }
}

Then in your template, replace
Code:
<?php get_header(); ?>
by:
Code:
<?php custom_get_header_nm(); ?>

--

I may add some get_header replacement function like this to the plugin..

@morvy : thanks, it's done (for delete /post). Initially, I don't want delete /tag but just replace it by name  of my tags to have a specific URL for all my posts with the same tag. For example, all my "analytics" posts wil be in a page with /blog/analytics (each post in this category will be accessible via  /blog/analytics/title-of-my-post) and all my "google" posts will be in a page with /blog/google... (each post in this category will be accessible via  /blog/google/title-of-my-other-post) Any idea about this ?

Another point I see on http://revotechnik.sk/blog you use a nice breadcrumb but with Micro data but not "Json-LB" like recommanded on https://developers.google.com/structured...readcrumbs. So 1. what plugin do you use to do breadcrumbs with micro data, and 2. any idea to do it with Json LD instead of micro data ?

Regards

Microdata are accepted as well as RDFa and JSON-LD, so I use those as they are the easiest to implement and contain less code too Smile

breadcrumbs are my custom work, with workarounds for Blog and Hardware (currently disabled)

@Carlos: excellent, I use get_header(false); + get_canon_url(); custom function just for canonical link, but finally it works as it should with all my News Manager pages (including opengraph stuff). Thanks!

Already done in the dev version. Next beta for 3.3 will have a gsconfig setting for this.

You're welcome.
However, news pages ?page=2, /page/2, etc. still don't have the correct canonical url.
Do you think it would be better to simply not render it, in those pages?

@carlos : /page/2, /page/3 have a canonical URL with parent URL but it's a nice solution from a SEO point of view 

The most important point is to add, in the header (<head></head>),  the rel="prev" and rel="next" tag (cf. https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/1663744) and to add a meta robots noindex, follow tag on theses pages.

Do you think it's possible ? Like some Wordpress Plugin like Yoast can do.

For meta robots, you could insert this in the <head> section of your template:
Code:
<?php if (nm_is_main() && !nm_is_home()) { ?>
<meta name="robots" content="noindex, follow">
<?php } ?>
