Refinery's news engine allows you to post updates to the news section of your website.
- Default news page shows a summary of recent news posts
- Detail view shows the full post and also linked to recent news on the "side bar"
To install the news engine, you can either include the gem or install as a plugin.
Include the latest (gem)[http://rubygems.org/gems/refinerycms-news] into your config/application.rb file like so:
config.gem "refinerycms-news", :lib => "news", :source => "rubygems.org", :version => "~> 0.9.7.1"
Then type the following at command line inside your Refinery CMS application's root directory:
rake gems:install script/generate news rake db:migrate
If you do not want to install the engine via RubyGems then you can install it as an engine inside your application's vendor directory. Type the following at command line inside your Refinery CMS application's root directory:
script/plugin install git://github.com/resolve/refinerycms-news.git script/generate news rake db:migrate
To get RSS for your entire site, insert this into the head section of your layout after installing:
<%= auto_discovery_link_tag(:rss, news_items_url(:format => 'rss')) %>
