>1. Add group to main menu
Do you want to add new parameter for each article group 'Show in main menu'?
You can do it using another our plugin ContentManager.
You can add new menu item using widgetzone and static URL for article group.


>2. Add relate article like relate product
Can you show me example?
Plugins allows to add articles on product detail page and can add products on article page too.

>3. Maybe some more relale kind part like news cms
Can you write me what you want?
I added comment and rss, but maybe i'll add new features too.

Thank you for your suggestion.

2. I think this is a good idea.

On some sites where you read about one thing, they will have links like:

Oops..I accidentally clicked SUBMIT...

See also:  anarticlename, adifferentarticlename, anotherarticlename

or:

Related articles:  anarticlename, adifferentarticlename, anotherarticlename


It will also be good for SEO because this allows us to pass "link juice" from a popular article page to an unpopular article page.

I'm evaluating the plugin and I'm looking for the following features:

- Position in Main Menu should be configurable
- Show selected groups in Main Menu (instead of "Articles")
- Field for Author (per article, not translatable)

Any chance these might get implemented? Or did I not find existing functionality?

What nopcommerce version do you use?

>- Position in Main Menu should be configurable
Nopcommerce has to widgetzones (header_menu_after and header_menu_before).
You can set the position manually in cshtml file but...
What do you mean?

>- Show selected groups in Main Menu (instead of "Articles")
Open plugin configure page and enabled "Each root group has personal page with subtree".

>- Field for Author (per article, not translatable)
Plugin doesn't have Author, but I think I'll be able to add it.

>Any chance these might get implemented? Or did I not find existing functionality?
Yes I can add new features but I want to understand if it will useful for another customers too.

I would have liked to be able to set the position just like I can do for topics in the built-in CMS with "Display Order". However, I understand that this does not work if the plugin can only add to the WidgetZones, so don't bother with this one.

Right, that's almost what I was looking for. However, when I do this, I would have expected that the left-hand navigation of the article groups would not repeat the root groups but only show the subgroups. Did I miss a setting which achieves this?

Also, when having the single Articles home, I'd like to be able to disable the article list. In my case there is an informational text in the ArticleHomePage and the article listing there makes this page huge; I'd like to have users access the articles via group navigation only so there should be no articles on the Articles home.

That would be great! Or even more generic provide the ability to define additional custom data fields to display before or after the article, but that might be too much work.

Yes. You will see the list of subgroups in the left menu block.
Each second level group will have own tree.

You can add articles or remove articles from left menu using this parameter "Show articles in Navigation panel" .

If you need such parameter Author write me on Monday.

This is not what I meant, sorry. Let me try to explain with a pic:

Yes please, and you got yourself a customer (even though we are still under the 25 article limit). ;)

I'll try to add "Author" this week.
You can change cshtml file and remove any blocks/messages.
