There are two problems with the scenario you just mentioned. One
problem is due to the Blog flow being not so explicit, and one due to
you looking in the wrong part :)
1. You entered the news correctly in the blog. However, if you did not
set the publication, it means that the blog post is just a draft. You
see it in the Sitemap, because the child Post was added successfully,
but you do not see it in the Blog page. I know, it's not that intuitive.
2. Now, suppose you do fill the publication field of the Post with the
current date. The post will appear in the Blog, but it will still not
appear in the main page. This is not a bug, it's actually a feature
because the posts on the main page will only be updated for a new
You were right to go look for the settings, but you looked at the
parameters of the blog. But, it's not the blog that is embedded in the
main page. Please just follow the environment of the main page to see
and track down how does the what's new items get there (similar to the
process I explained in the previous mail). Let me know if it still
isn't not working.
Movies would be welcome.
To remove the Seaside banner on the bottom, you have to set the
Deployment Mode of the Seaside application to be true. For this:
- go to localhost:8080/seaside/config (login: admin/seaside)
- choose to Configure the pier application
- for the Deployment Mode entry choose override and then false
- save (at the bottom)
