our extension tinymce_rte which is a replacement for the default TYPO3 RTE has now reached a state where it should be considered a real alternative even in productive environments.
Almost any feature we could think of is already implemented and should work out of the box. It's now quite good integrated with TYPO3. If you know TinyMCE and like it you will definitely like tinymce_rte. If you don't know here are a few facts:
- reached more than 2 Million downloads + 1.8 Million downloads of Wordpress (2.6) where it is pre-installed
- packages available for WordPress, Mambo, Joomla!, Drupal and many other CMS Systems
- for more information see http://tinymce.moxiecode.com/
Here are some facts for the TYPO3 port tinymce_rte:
- a very simple and straight forward port of TinyMCE for TYPO3
- uses the newest TinyMCE version and it can easily be replace (even includes a patch system if you upgradet the TinyMCE files as there are a few small modifications)
- almost the same configuration format as TinyMCE
- complete configuration with Page TSconfig (popup size, thumbnail size, default link/image tab...)
- use of a gzip version (for faster load) [also file cache support]
- supports all languages available for TinyMCE through another extension (tinymce_languages)
- reasonable configuration for RTE Transformations to allow tables, styles, classes, ids, etc. directly in the RTE
- FE Plugin
- override default configuration for users in the User Tsconfig
- you can have more than on RTE in the BE/FE per page
We now have a simple testpage where you can login and try the rte.
Issues should be reported at the forge:
there is a google group at:
Want to know where your content elements or plugins are hiding? This new module will add a "Content elements overview" to your Web > Info module where you can see which elements are placed on which page in your page tree. There's also a search feature for more focused inspection.
This a pre-release-to-TER announcement. Please test and send your feedback.
TheBridge accesses FLOW3 via TYPO3 Version 4.x and intended to let FLOW3 render the output for a plugin of v4. It can help to close the gap between today and the day FLOW3 v1.0.0 is released. TheBridge can also be use to code experimental "real live" packages based on FLOW3. Any feedback is appreciated!
Since the progress of the project is amazing for me I just needed to know how users can handle the Wizard at the moment and therefore I asked two of my coworkers and friends to review it. And tadaaa in first place they liked it and they also brought up some really good ideas for improvements.
They also found some problems regarding the usability of polygones <- a part I've never thought of since polygones are not supported yet but now I've a idea how to handle them.
The next step is to do some research in various other software-products to check how they handle the creation of polygones. Also some work regarding the TCEform-Preview is remaining and then I should have something like a ALPHA version :)
Thx reviewing guys...
- TinyMCE spellchecker
- TinyMCE templates
- proper default language
- allow to link to CE
The TYPO3 security team has discovered a security issue in the Commerce code. Please see the detailed security bulletin at: http://typo3.org/teams/security/security-bulletins/typo3-20081020-2/
Please update your installations to the latest Versions, if you can't update to the TER Version nor to the SVN Version, a patch file can be requested from the TYPO3 Commerce team at firstname.lastname@example.org
DAM has also been reconfigured to become more flexible and allow for different skins. This work will be finished in DAM 1.2, making it as flexible as possible and adding the option to use different BE skins.
TYPO3 4.2 started using templates for its modules, added docheaders, and otherwise improved the output on the BE. Since DAM 1.1 requires TYPO3 4.2.2, it was necessary to style it better and make it match the rest of the system. Another big change was taking out inline CSS declarations and moving them into a linked CSS file. This improves the performance, since external CSS file can be cached. It also improves the flexibility, because the CSS file is much easier to modify than PHP code.
DAM extensions that add their own modules or submodules can use the new skin. The following lines will make the module output match the rest of DAM (taken from the file module, and should be modified to reflect the output of your extension):
// // Initialize the template object // $this->doc = t3lib_div::makeInstance('template'); $this->doc->backPath = $BACK_PATH; // Load the module template – change to your extension template if necessary $this->doc->setModuleTemplate(t3lib_extMgm::extRelPath('dam') . 'res/templates/mod_file_list.html'); $this->doc->styleSheetFile2 = t3lib_extMgm::extRelPath('dam') . 'res/css/stylesheet.css'; $this->doc->docType = 'xhtml_trans';
And at the end of the module, assuming all markers are set:
$this->markers['CONTENT'] = $this->content; $docHeaderButtons = array( 'NEW' => $this->markers['NEW'], 'UPLOAD' => $this->markers['UPLOAD'], 'REFRESH' => $this->markers['REFRESH'], 'LEVEL_UP' => $this->markers['LEVEL_UP'], 'RECORD_LIST' => $this->markers['RECORD_LIST'], 'SHORTCUT' => $this->markers['SHORTCUT'], // Add your own markers ); // Build the <body> for the module $this->content = $this->doc->startPage($LANG->getLL('title')); $this->content.= $this->doc->moduleBody($this->pageinfo, $docHeaderButtons, $this->markers); $this->content.= $this->doc->endPage();
You can test the skin by checking out the latest revision of 1.1.0-dev at https://svn.typo3.org/TYPO3v4/Extensions/dam/dam/trunk
Constructive criticism is always welcomed.
tHNx Dan Osipov for your work and your article
By now mailform will be developped over the forge of typo3.org. If you have some issues please post them here on this site.
there has been quite some progress.
We no support all TinyMCE languages trough a separate extension (tinymce_languages), allow costum sizes for the popups, for the thumbnails etc.
All in all - once you tried this RTE you won't want to go back... :p
We now released version 0.0.5 of tinymce_rte which should be a quite stable version.
Please test it as much as possible and report any bugs you encounter.
