The future of tt_products

This page serves as a central point to discuss the addons and corrections to tt_products. The general conversation is done on the multilingual (German, English, French, Italian) TYPO3 Forum. You can also write an email to Franz Holzinger. You can report issues and raise pull requests also at Github tt_products .

The extension tt_products is Open Source. Every programmer is invited to contribute his piece of code to the shop extension or to a separate extension with additional features which is based on hooks of tt_products. Nobody should create or use a fork.

You can get the latest version of tt_products and a much improved mbi_products_categories extensions including hooks for mm-categories in the shop of This sponsoring is needed to get the bugs fixed, questions answered and new features implemented and well tested. This development work cannot continue without regularly received payments. This is a fundraising where the contributors and sponsors will get the code in advance. The currently developed extension code will be published on the TYPO3 TER under GPL as free after some years of funds collection.

Patches for TYPO3 6.2

Unfortunately TYPO3 6.2 introduces bugs and misses some features. You should apply these patches from


You are welcome to join the team to implement your features of tt_products. (see the tt_products news list. If you have already a working shop and want to be sure that it will remain compatible to future versions of TYPO3, help us to achieve this: Give us a full copy of your TYPO3 tt_products implementation. This is necessary to test it during the development process.


TER: tt_products

You will find the tt_products 2.8.7 sources with the Extension Manager. The official sources with small corrections (maybe not working) are downloadable from

Forge tt_products

git pull

Only the latest code of the master of a version specific branch may be uploaded into TER.
See the tt_products manual for upgrade steps from previous versions of tt_products.


See the extension addons_tt_products for example shop template files.

Installation Instructions

Remove your tt_products extension from the Extension Manager, download the file above and copy its contents to the local folder typo3conf/ext/tt_products or the global typo3/ext/tt_products on your server.
Then use the Extension Manager's "Available extensions to install" and add the Shop system again.


You have several setup options to configure the display and the behaviour of category lists and menues.


Put your recommendations here. Send error messages directly to the author.

  • Recommendation 1:

If you use PIDthanks then you have to use also the BASKET_ORDERTHANKS_TEMPLATE used for displaying a thanks page.

  • Recommendation 2:

I had the problem, that when choosing a variant of a product and the marker ###ARTICLE_NOTE### was used in conjunction with id="###ARTICLE_NOTE_ID###" all german special characters showed up as "?". Setting ['t3lib_cs_convMethod'] = 'recode' and ['t3lib_cs_utils'] = 'recode' solved the problem. It seems to me that the standard conversion methods used in TYPO3 (used version was 4.2.8) screwed up a little bit here.

  • Recommendation 3:

No extension is added as suggested for tt_products due to misunderstanding from some users who thought that these extensions were required. So here comes the list of suggested extensions: agency, pmkhtmlcrop, static_info_tables, static_info_tables_taxes, taxajax, transactor


It's much easier to upgrade from one shop-version to the current one, when addons are added using hooks. When a hook exists what is not listed here, then just add it to this page! --Daniel Brüßler 09:45, 21 April 2007 (CEST)


example usage: I need to add certain parameter to the "back to list" links

documentation@2007-03-17 - available in the next version (suppose 2.5.3):


You can define your method with the $addQueryString as a reference. Then you can change the contents.

function getLinkParams($excludeList='',&$addQueryString, ...) {
  $queryString['backPID'] = 0815;


example usage: I need to add "global" content what comes from the FlexForm or what is defined by TypoScript

documentation@2007-04-21 - available since version 2.5.2:

You define the method in an extra class:

class tx_ttproducts_markeradd {
   function addGlobalMarkers(&$markerArray)     {
     $markerArray['###EXT_PRODUCT_YOURNEWMARKER###'] = 'YOURNEWMARKER-content';

if (defined('TYPO3_MODE') && $TYPO3_CONF_VARS[TYPO3_MODE]['XCLASS']['ext/YOUREXTENSIONKEY/marker/class.tx_ttproducts_markeradd.php']) {

if (defined('TYPO3_MODE')) {
  $TYPO3_CONF_VARS['EXTCONF'][TT_PRODUCTS_EXTkey]['addGlobalMarkers'][] =

and load it in the main class class.tx_ttproducts_pi1 using require_once.


You can use the hook at function getItemMarkerArray in model/class.tx_ttproducts_article_base.php to add markers on a product/article base.


newly implemented

  • credit card payment via Paypal: Paypal extension can be used together with the Payment Library and tt_products

Add your wishes here

what should be implemented in the next step.

  • integration with other backend shop data, for example stock, shipping services like Hermes, CRM
  • using rg_slideshow for product pictures would be nice
  • it would be nice if it was possibly to select autorotation of highlights and offers. I.e. two 'offers' or 'highlights' displayed on the front page – each time the page is updated, the next (or random) two 'offers'/'highlights' are displayed. I know 'ke_showproducts' have this feature, but it do not allow you to use al the fields of tt_products (only 'image' and 'title').
  • XML product feeds, to import products from supplier XML DB.
  • category support by page. Select category when you create an article or product and save all products and acticles in one sysfolder. Create new page, insert shop, selct list, chose category that is to be displayed, or select all
  • it would be nice if multiple price discount percentage user groups could be added. Ie. admin adds a user COMPANY 3 to user group 1 and this user group has 10% off price (configureable) and prices are automatically cut off 10% when he logs in, or even better - under the price his discount is displayed as: Your discount: 10%. Then, 10% is deducted from total in his basket or total sum. This way it could enable nice reseller purchasements or wholesale. It would be absolutely GREAT if additionally products or products groups could have different discount rates. Ie. Prod group 1 for user group 1 discount: 8%.
  • Always check if the amount of products is on the stock before making an order possible.
  • Create a price value where shipping costs nothing
  • Ratings : rate popularity of the product
  • opinions/feedback left by others(registered users) who used the product.
  • Possibilitie to have a Main product and from there a link to accessoires which you also can buy if you want.
  • Backend module for order processing, product and user administration
  • Possibility to use 4 decimals (0,0231) for wholesale items.
  • Possibility to sell downloadable items, e.g. pictures or software.
  • display error message for wrong entries on the entry page
  • make TMENU usable with the products sysfolder
  • possibility to save automatically if the customer is male or female.
  • More options when showing the variants in single view ex. use radio buttons instead of droplist; show variant price next to option. ex. SIZE - PRICE
  • would be nice to have this module using Flex and Templavoila, instead of traditional TS templating
  • Resize images to a exact size (ex: 150px x 120px) even if they are horizontal or vertical sized
