Name: cmsplugin-news Description: A news plugin for django-cms Download: http://bitbucket.org/MrOxiMoron/cmsplugin-news/

Requirements: - django-cms-2.0: rev 2b59edde3cf1c140edfb14b544f2fbcbd56073f8 - django: 1.1.1 + requirements for django-cms-2.0

Last tested with: - django-cms-2.0: rev 276bae54e2184187db7e71f2aab54121db7c729d - django: 1.1.1

Setup - make sure requirements are installed and properly working - add cmsplugin_news to python path - add 'cmsplugin_news' to INSTALLED_APPS - run 'python manage.py syncdb' - Add the cmsplugin_news.urls to the CMS_APPLICATIONS_URLS setting - Add the cmsplugin_news.navigation.get_nodes to the CMS_NAVIGATION_EXTENDERS setting - Create a page and link the application and navigation to it. (Restart of the server required due to caching!) - Create the propper templates for your site, the ones included with the app are VERY basic

Todo and Tomaybes: - Add more tests - add to cms_plugins.py for plugins

  • month view with days that link to archive_day view
  • add setup.py for easyinstall / pip
  • Allow comments on news (add option to the news model for it)
  • Add migrations
  • Optimize the navigation code, it works but there is probably a better way to do it.
  • Add RSS feed
  • Add optional author field
  • Add optional end date to hide news again
  • Add Tags
  • Add translations (I can do the dutch one)
  • Ideas other people come up with :D


('cmsplugin_news.urls', 'News'),


('cmsplugin_news.navigation.get_nodes','News navigation'),


Suggestion: To avoid confusion add a "application" template to the CMS which is like other templates but without any placeholders. That way users won't get tempted to fill the placeholders and then complain they don't show up ;-)
