The News extension for Radiant gives you the ability to post “News” items. The new items are cool for mini updates on things, OR for really posting News 🙂
I am going to go through installing the News extension on Radiant 0.7.1.
Based on the install info for News it says you need to install calendar_date_select and points you at their page. Their google code page says you can simply do:
sudo gem install calendar_date_select
Yeah, so, for some reason that doesn’t work. Skip that step and do the rest, we will address it later.
1) Clone from github!
git clone git://github.com/screenconcept/radiant-news-extension.git vendor/extensions/news
2) Run the Migration and Update tasks
rake production radiant:extensions:news:migrate rake radiant:extensions:news:update
Know that you can swap out “production” or add in whatever environment you want.
3) Finally we install the calendar_date_select PLUGIN not the gem! I could not get this thing working with the gem.
git clone git://github.com/timcharper/calendar_date_select.git vendor/plugins/calendar_date_select && rm -rf vendor/plugins/calendar_date_select/.git
4) Weeeeee 🙂
