First, make sure you've run the migration on RefineryCMS (db:setup / db:migrate).

Use script/plugin install with the github clone url found here.

After the plugin is in place, run the following to install

rake refinery:blog:install
rake db:migrate

This plugin's gem requirements are:

To make tagging work place this in your Gemfile

gem 'acts-as-taggable-on', '= 2.0.2'

To make captcha work place this in your Gemfile

gem 'fattr'

Now run bundle install in your application's directory at command line.

Note: If you are already using acts-as-taggable-on in your app, you may want to remove the migration file for "tags/taggings" tables.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
