It may not look like it but this blog is still alive. The logs show that there's still some interest in things FluidTYPO3 and I will come up with something regarding recent changes soon.
Onepage or Singlepage design sites are quite popular these days especially for sites that don't provide too much content, landing pages or microsites and the like. Creating those in TYPO3 is easy enough with FluidTYPO3. Here's how.
I just wanted to let you know that I updated my examples in the quickstart series of posts to reflect the recent changes in FluidTYPO3. Please be aware that all are now based on TYPO3 6.2.x and the latest dev branches of the extensions which is important regarding namespaces and namespace declarations.
In case you encounter the mysterious net::ERR_CONTENT_LENGTH_MISMATCH error (doesn't apply to Firefox) let me guess: Using TYPO3 6.2.x? Using EXT:vhs? Thought so. The error can be caused by vhs' assets feature in the current TER version 1.8.5 and in combination with
config.enableContentLengthHeader which is enabled in TYPO3 6.2 by default. So to fix it either disable
config.enableContentLengthHeader (uncool) or use the current dev branch of vhs found on GitHub.
The FluidTYPO3 family of extensions underwent some major updates recently. Flux was bumped to version 7.0 which included changes in the naming of most of its viewhelpers. All examples in this blog remain functional but should be updated to reflect the new naming scheme. Unfortunately I don't have enough time for that so in case you came here to follow those examples please head over to fluidtypo3.org and see what has changed.
In a current project I needed a way to replace the wording of selected form labels and messages for certain users. Symfony's translation catalogues seemed the right place to start with as I could simply add different catalogues for those users and use the
translation_domain argument in forms.
In case you find yourself repeating a set of FlexForm fields in multiple FCEs or page templates here's a nice 'hack' to share them across templates.
When implementing custom content elements and/or page templates with FluidTYPO3 you might encounter situations where you want to preprocess a FlexForms's values or add some more template variables. This is easy enough with controllers which come with some nice side effect.
