Refinery CMS Blog Build Status

Simple blog engine for Refinery CMS. It supports posts, categories and comments.

This version of refinerycms-blog supports Refinery 4.x and Rails 5.1.x (Ruby 2.2+). To use Rails 4.x / Refinery 3.1.x / Ruby 2.1 or older use the refinerycms-blog "Refinery CMS 3-0 stable branch".


  • Comment moderation
  • support on posts. To enable, set your key in Refinery's settings area.


Refinery CMS version 4.0.0 or above (Ruby 2.2 or above).


Open up your Gemfile and at the bottom, add this line:

gem 'refinerycms-blog', git: '', branch: 'master'

Note: if the refinerycms-page-images extension is also installed, make sure gem refinerycms-blog comes before gem 'refinerycms-page-images'.

Now, run bundle install

Next, to install the blog plugin run:

rails generate refinery:blog

Run database migrations:

rake db:migrate

Finally seed your database and you're done.

rake db:seed

Visual Editor

By default, this extension does not require any particular visual editor. Previously, Refinery was coupled to WYMeditor but this has been extracted to an extension, refinerycms-wymeditor.

If you want to use refinerycms-wymeditor, simply place it in your Gemfile:

gem 'refinerycms-wymeditor', ['~> 1.0', '>= 1.0.6']

Developing & Contributing

The version of Refinery to develop this engine against is defined in the gemspec. To override the version of refinery to develop against, edit the project Gemfile to point to a local path containing a clone of refinerycms.


Generate the dummy application to test against

$ bundle exec rake refinery:testing:dummy_app

Run the test suite with Guard

$ bundle exec guard start

Or just with rake spec

$ bundle exec rake spec
