Installing Blog Part 2
Install Blog Templates, Pages, Fields, Role and optionally Template Files
In this second step of your Blog installation, via the Blog dashboard (admin/blog/), you will see an overview of the settings you selected in the first part of your installation. Here you install Blog's components.
Before you click the button to run the install wizard, nothing will happen yet. You can still go back and change the module configuration settings. Until you run the install wizard in this second step, you will have no Blog Pages, Fields, Templates, etc.
- At this second and final stage, you will also be able to rename your Blog’s main pages before they are created. If you don’t do it at this stage, you can also rename them post-install in the ProcessWire pages' tree. If you are happy with your settings, click the install wizard to proceed. Blog will be fully installed with your settings within a few seconds and you will then be presented with the Blog dashboard.
- Only Templates, Pages and Fields necessary for your selected Blog style will be installed. For instance, if you did not enable the commenting feature, related Templates, Pages, etc. will not be created.
- Note that non-enabled features (except for the Rich Text Editor in Quick Post) cannot be enabled once this second part of the install is complete. However, using the Cleanup feature you can return Blog to the first step of the installer stage and enable a feature you want or even select a different Blog style.
- If you chose to install the demo Template Files, also manually copy over the /css/ and /js/ folders present in Blog module's folder to your /site/templates/ folder.
If you need to change any configuration, you can go back to the module settings and do it BEFORE you finalise step two of the installation. It is important that once the installation is finalised, in case you had left the ProcessBlog's module configuration's browser window open, NOT to press submit again. Otherwise, Blog in the front-end (MarkupBlog) may not function as expected. However, if you reload the module configurations screen once the second part of the installer has finished, you will not be able to change the configuration settings (with the above noted exception). Instead, you will be presented with an overview of your installed settings.
