Several months ago I decided to add a blog to my CS-Cart-powered bookstore site. I decided on WordPress and hired someone to integrate the look and feel of my site. However, this proved unsatisfactory on many levels. So I started looking for blog addons from the CS-Cart developers. There are several worthy offerings, but in the end I decided on this one from Cart Power. I LOVE how this blog integrates so nicely into the CS-Cart software. It just looks really nice. I also LOVE their support! They have done some slight custom modifications for me and also squashed a few bugs, all without charging me extra. $49 is a steal for this addon. Recently I had a problem while upgrading my site in which I deleted a bunch of addon templates, including for this one. Once again Cart Power support has come through for me and everything is back up and running. You can see how the blog looks by going to Kingsley Press dot com and then clicking the Blog link in the very top left or in the footer. If you're thinking of adding a blog to your CS-Cart powered store, don't hesitate to choose this one!

I recently purchased this addon and am happy with it, I needed the articles to display to the sitemap and the developer was quick too add this feature for free and the next day, great service !
