there are several issues concerning the page module (classic)

  • CE's are not well separated
  • the view is crowded with ungrouped icons
  • there is too much info visible
  • edit links are not consistent, some texts are not linked
  • crop of text preview is hardcoded to 1500
  • Headers are not consistent with list view
  • CSH icon is at wrong position
  • CSH of big buttons has wrong position
  • quickedit has wrong order of funtion menus
  • not unique width of columns looks bad
  • difficult to get a visual focus, users are irretated

i tried to handle all issues in my patch, some screenshots are added

Beside the visual changes i did there are 3 new configuration params for usage in pageTS

var $showLanguageLabelInCE = false; // If set true, label for language will be shown in CE header
var $previewTextCropLength = 150; // sets length of preview text of CEs
var $columnWidth = 200; // fix width for columns

This has to be documented.

Usage (pageTS):

mod.web_layout { # this brings back the language labels in CE
showLanguageLabelInCE = 1 # sets preview text length
previewTextCropLength = 500 # sets fixed width for columns. For auto-width set it to 0
columnWidth = 280

The last patch is against TYPO3 4.2.3. I hope there isn't anything missing in the patch, because it has only the half of the size from the original one. However the patch worked fine in my installation.

This is really a great patch! This really improves usability a lot!
I especially like the idea of the adjustable column-width.

One usability-improvement I miss in this module is, that the "Show secondary options" is always shown.

If there was a way to hide this checkbox, that would be great.
Could you still add that small feature?

This would make the patch perfect!

Thanks to bring this up again, i will test your latest patch ASAP.

@Christopher - i know you want to hide the checkbox, but it's a different issue and should go to a different patch, as it belongs to different views.

uploaded version 3 for TYPO3 4.2.4

#6 Updated by Ingo Renner about 11 years ago

why are you creating diffs against 4.2? We can't include it there anymore, just create patches against trunk, that'll do. =)

#7 Updated by Stefan Galinski over 9 years ago

The patch completely fails with 4.4, but IMHO it's not needed anymore in this version. Our skinning team did a great job!

#8 Updated by Ingo Renner over 9 years ago

agreed, the current version is even better

#9 Updated by Steffen Kamper over 9 years ago

solved in 4_4 with the new skin
