TypoScript Quick Guide
notice - This information is outdated
Navigating the Documentation Matrix for TypoScript information can be overwhelming. This page lists some important documents.
Feel free to update this page with information you have had difficulty finding.
These links are very important:
...with Modern Template Building
You can do this like inserting the menu in the Modern Template Building Tutorial. For example, getting the content from the mininews plugin:
temp.myobj < plugin.tx_mininews_pi1
...with Futuristic Template Builiding (TemplaVoila)
When mapping you can link an object straight to a typoscript location, eg "lib.myobj" so the typoscript can simply be:
lib.myobj < plugin.tx_mininews_pi1
Plugin Commands and Properties
Properties can usually be found in the Template Object Browser or using the TSref buttons. Sometimes I have found the only way to find properties is to look at the php code. The code usually resides in a file called ext/<<plugin name>>/pi<<number>>/class.<<something>>.php
Setting properties is quite simple: plugin.tx_mininews_pi1.CMD = FP plugin.tx_mininews_pi1.pidList = 22
Both the links at the top of this document have good information on using conditions.
