How can I change the component to support a title image like a group?
Where should I start if not compare codes from groups and blogs?


German Michael Zülsdorff Replied 4 years ago

@all who were asking for shared Blog pages

do you want to share only the Blog
or Blog comments, too?

German Michael Zülsdorff Replied 4 years ago

Nothing Martin,
it's intentionally coded to work that way.

German Martin Korn Replied 4 years ago

unregistered members cannot see the contributions. what did I do wrong

German Michael Zülsdorff Replied 4 years ago

no component provides a built-in option to enable it. The logic behind is part of the administrator backend. And if you don't see that Enable Button you're most likely missing one or more pre-requisites (listed in the right column with a red X)

I just got this Blogs yesterday. Everything is working. Try clearing cache.

ch Fikri Sami Replied 4 years ago

This component does not provide the option to enable it.
I see only the red Delete button.

Is there a way I can enable it manually?

German Michael Zülsdorff Replied 4 years ago

you can send your translation to [email protected].
I'll be happy to include your contribution with the next release.
