Meet the new CS-Cart 4.3.1 add-on—the Blog add-on.
Use this add-on to create a fully functional blog inside your store. In your blog, you can publish news, special offers, and announcements.

Blog Layout Page
On the Design → Layouts page in the admin panel, you will find the Blog layout page.
The layout page is filled with blocks. Blocks keep the content that customers see on the storefront. Use the blocks on this layout page to arrange the blog content:
- Breadcrumbs—navigation links that help your customers keep track of their location on the storefront.
- Main content—posts. This is what blog visitors come for.
- Recent posts—a list of recently added posts. By clicking the post title a visitor opens the post.
A post comprises a title, date of addition, author’s name, and the main text with illustrations.
You can add a list of blog posts to any storefront page. For example, add the list to your store’s homepage to let your customers open a post directly from the homepage:
To add a list of posts to a storefront page, use the Recent posts block. We have prepared detailed instructions on adding a list of posts to your storefront.
