    Default Blog Summary Not Working

    Hi,

    The Blog summary does not work, it shows the entire article. It doesn't matter what template I am using. I am using v2.5.8.

    Thanks for your help!

    The blog feature in v2.x was not fully cooked. OR v2 is also not being developed any longer.

    I would suggest upgrading to OR v3, it has a lot more features and what is being developed and maintained now. Its blogging feature is completely functional.

    I have upgraded to 3.0 and the blog summary still doesn't work. Any ideas?

    Thanks, Stan

    While not having a link to your page where you say it doesn't work, we will not have any idea. Please, also tell us exactly wich O-R version you installed.
    So help us to help you!

    3.0.12

    No summary, only a full article.

    I am using the {blog_summary} tag.

    Tested O-R v.3.0.12 and I do confirm what the OP says: the template tag {blog_summary} is returning a FULL blog article (the same as {blog_full_article}). BTW at backend there is also no option to configure the summary of blog articles - we should have an option like "max number of chars" for that.
    IMO this is a bug or at least a feature not completed at Open-Realty and this should be reported to TTech.

    I sent a note off to TT through their portal, yesterday. Hopefully they will look at it soon. Any other suggestions?

    Thanks, Stan

    I heard back. All I got was a note saying that support for the free edition was through the forum and to look at the docs.

    So they were no help. This thread needs to move to 3.0. I started it when I was running the old version.

    When you notified them did you link to this thread? If not, you should, otherwise if you don't have a Pro license they are just going to point you back here.

    I didn't think to do that. I sent it to them now.

    Thanks.
