Installation

Install the extension by downloading it in the extension manager or on https://extensions.typo3.org/extension/ce_timeline/.

Basic configuration

You don't need to configure much to get this extension running.

  • add the static TypoScript (Timeline - Content Element) to your template record
  • add the static Page Configuration (Timeline Content Element) to your root page if you want a "New Content Element Wizard"
  • choose a static TypoScript (e.g. Timeline Styles - Default) to make the timeline look nice
  • add a content element of type "Timeline" and add some entries
  • To use the lightbox-feature, you need to include the static TypoScript in your template record
  • have fun!

Need custom CSS Styling or even SASS?

No problem! Just do NOT include the Static TypoScript as mentioned above and the extension will render just plain HTML. If you want to use the styles that come with the extension, feel free to use the SASS file in "Resources/Private/Scss" and change them to your needs.

Changing the template files

Since this is NOT a plugin but a regular content element, you need to change the following paths in order to overwrite the HTML/Fluid template paths with your own paths:

Page Setup

lib.contentElement{
    templateRootPaths{
        1277 = EXT:ce_timeline/Resources/Private/Templates/
    }
    partialRootPaths{
        1277 = EXT:ce_timeline/Resources/Private/Partials/
    }
}

Template files

Files you need to copy in order to overwrite them:

Main Template file: https://github.com/koehlersimon/ce_timeline/blob/master/Resources/Private/Templates/Timeline.html

Partials: https://github.com/koehlersimon/ce_timeline/tree/master/Resources/Private/Partials
