  • Universal - no bootstrap needed toDO!


KNOWN PROBLEMS

none


NOTES

  • not tested with other bootstraps than bootstrap_package. Prefereably install bootstrap_package.
  • this +ext load some scss styles. If you get some error maybe that you are not using scss.
  • not yet tested with less. Maybe in the future there will be a new version for less and scss, now the extension works only with scss
  • documentation at the moment not available, but the use is very intuitive

TESTED UNDER ...

  • TYPO3 v.9.5.x and news 7.3+
  • not yet tested under NEWS 8.0.x and/or with TYPO3 v.10

TROUBLESHOOTING

  • the output is not what expected, buttons, etc. are printed out despite of the plugin configuration
    solution: include the library newsstylist editing the whole template
  • image not shown - check the plugin configuration and/or open the image properties and select "Show in all views" or "Show only in list news"

 toDO, DEVELOPEMENT AND IDEAS

  • output with CARD layout
  • add a new field to override the "more..." label
  • a new layout called "universal" so that can works with any site, independent from boostrap package
