Reviews:

I carefully considered 4 different 3rd party addons for our blog. I wasn't disappointed with my choice of choosing this blog addon. It is indeed a "power" addon..it is easy to setup with all the features i needed for my blog. more power to Ruslan and the team
good works!
Like (+) and unlike (-) buttons by other customers for user review, is need.
We just purchased this blog and will be implementing it into our site, will leave additional feedback once it is set up. I just want to thank Cart-Power for such great service, it is because of this I trust this blog add-on will also be top notch! Thank you Cart-Power!
Dear Tom,

Thank you for your suggestion. We will include this feature to the next release. We will contact you by email with news.
It will be a version 4.3 compatible ?
is not a reviews, is a suggestion for the blog addon.

The addon is ok, but you need to add 2 important features:
1. blog category in url: site.com/blog/article, or site.com/blog/category/article (is important for seo, because the site is nor a blog, is a eCommerce with a blog, that means articles needs to belog to the blog)
2. Block with category option. For example if i'm on a category (laptops), i need to show articles with laptops only (for seo purpose), and not the latest blog posts (on different subjects). This can be done by offering the option for "blog category" = latest post from a specified category, or by tag: show latest blogs by tag (tag = laptops).

This 2 option are mandatory for seo, because the blog purpose is to attract traffic = seo.

If you add this 2 options, then please email me to: info@leverage.ro, and i will order de blog add-on. Thanks.
