    Product questions

    How to hide the blog pages from search engine crawlers to avoid duplicate content issue?

    Some of your posts may be included in multiple categories and have several tags. That's why different category and tag pages can posses the same content that search engines mark as duplicated. Hide these pages from indexation to avoid this problem.

    Just like that!
    The posts scheduling is something I've been waited for long. Both frontend and backend functionality works lightly. Highly recommend the extension for your store blog.

    Thanks, Amasty!
    The extension is what I was looking for:) The interface is so simple that I can arrange the content the way my readers will like it in a second. I don't need to delve into coding (whew!) just drag, add or delete.

    also works good in multi-store
    I didn't expect much from the module, though all the stated features work well to my surprise. I liked the auto comment approval, wysiwyg, the layout constructor, which is really easy to use. But the zero-cool feature I went ape of is the hacker attacks protection.

    good, but can be better
    We wanted our blog to be not on the subdomain, but in the folder, which can be a tricky part with Magento and WordPress. This option was the best for us except for the price (hint: we got a Christmas discount!).
    The blog has all the basic features you need for a simple blog (keep in mind that if you need more functionality, it's better to go with WordPress, it will be cheaper, but you'll have to ask your sys admin to fix the Magento-WordPress issue).
    Maybe the looks of some page parts can be a bit better. I hope that the extension will be updated with more skins and layout options.
