Which extension (extension key) does this page refer to? It links to CoolURI but the title and text suggests something different. - Sypets 2020-04-18
Please remove "{{Question}}" when the problem is solved. See all questions.


What does it do?

It enables you to put multimedia-files beside text with the ordinary "text with image" Content Element (textpic).

It is a hook of css_styled_content.

It makes use of $this->cObj->MULTIMEDIA with width and height Params.


In the Installtool, you have to set your multimedia fileextension as an image extension, so that you are able to select multimedia files in content element text with image. Perhaps it could be done by editing the TCA? If some one has an suggestion, feel free to mail me - thanks.
