README

This extension is based on extbase & fluid and provides the famous extension ext:news of Georg Ringer (thanks a lot @georgringer !) with one or more authors. You can centrally manage authors and attach them to news records. The extensions comes with two plugins, one for listing all authors and one for the detail page of an author which also shows the news records of the selected author.

Requirements

  • TYPO3 >= 11.5
  • ext:news >= 9.0
  • ext:numbered_pagination >= 1.0.1

Installation

  • Install the extension by using the extension manager or use composer (composer req mediadreams/md_news_author)
  • Include the static TypoScript of the extension
  • Configure the extension by setting your own constants

Usage

  • Create some author records on a sysfolder (use list modul, push plus-icon Create new record and select News Author)
  • Create a news record on a sysfolder and find the new tab Author
  • Select one or more authors for the news record
  • Save and close

List authors

Insert paginated list of all authors.

  • Create a plugin News author: Author list on a page
  • Choose for Page with single author view the page with single author view
  • Select the sysfolder where the author records are stored
  • Additional settings can be found in the tab List view settings
  • If needed, show authors of certain categories only (tab Categories)
  • Save and close

Authors detail page

Insert an author detail view. This page includes also all news which are associated with the choosen author.

Show author in ext:news view

  • Access the author properties in a news record with {newsItem.newsAuthor}. Since there could be more than one author attached to a news record, you have to iterate:
<f:for each="{newsItem.newsAuthor}" as="author">
    {md:ShowAuthorName(author: author)}
    {author.phone}
    {author. ...}
</f:for>
  • Add a link to the profile page

Don't forget to load the viewhelper {namespace md=Mediadreams\MdNewsAuthor\ViewHelpers}:

<f:for each="{newsItem.newsAuthor}" as="author">
    <f:link.action action="show" controller="NewsAuthor" extensionName="mdnewsauthor" pluginName="show" arguments="{newsAuthor: author}" pageUid="{settings.newsAuthor.authorDetailPid}" title="More about {md:ShowAuthorName(author:'{author}')}">
        <md:ShowAuthorName author="{author}" />
    </f:link.action>
</f:for>

Page TSconfig

In order to show only authors of a single page in the "Authors"-tab of a news record, you can use the following TSconfig:

TCEFORM.tx_news_domain_model_news.news_author.PAGE_TSCONFIG_STR = 1

This will show only the author records, which are stored on page ID = 1
