Refinery News

About

Refinery's news engine allows you to post updates to the news section of your website.

Key features:

  • 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"

Requirements

Refinery CMS "core" engine version 2.0.0 or later.

Gem Installation using Bundler (The very best way)

Include the latest gem into your Refinery CMS application's Gemfile:

gem "refinerycms-news", '~> 2.0.0'

Then type the following at command line inside your Refinery CMS application's root directory:

bundle install
rails generate refinery:news
rake db:migrate
rake db:seed

How to display a news feed on the homepage:

Assuming you've already overridden the homepage view:

$ rake refinery:override view=refinery/pages/home

You can render the recent_posts partial. However, you will need to set the recent News items manually, since this is normally handled in the News::Items controller:

<% @items = Refinery::News::Item.latest(5) %>
<%= render :partial => '/refinery/news/items/recent_posts' %>

Customising the views

Type this command at your project root to override the default front end views:

$ rake refinery:override view=refinery/news/items/*
Copied view template file to app/views/refinery/news/items/_recent_posts.html.erb
Copied view template file to app/views/refinery/news/items/index.html.erb
Copied view template file to app/views/refinery/news/items/show.html.erb
etc.

RSS (Really Simple Syndication)

To get RSS for your entire site, insert this into the head section of your layout after installing:

<%= auto_discovery_link_tag(:rss, refinery.news_items_url(:format => 'rss')) %>
