RefineryCMS blog's gem requirements are:

Instructions for installing these gems follows below.


You need to install

gem install acts-as-taggable-on

add the line:

gem "acts-as-taggable-on"

to your Gemfile

bundle install

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


The Captcha use Raptcha, a really cool "one file lib" that just work from ahoward @ If you want to use Captcha, you need rMagick (which is already a dependency of RefineryCMS) and fattr:

gem install fattr

add the line:

gem "fattr"

to your Gemfile

bundle install

The lib is located at /lib/raptcha.rb, you can update it or edit to fit your need.

Installation (as a plugin)

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

Deal with the dependencies (see dependencies)

Clone the plugin:

script/plugin install git://

Copy the migration with

rake refinery:blog:install

& run the migration

rake db:migrate
