I am using Typo3 Version 6.2 with the plugin tt_news.
All I want to do is:
- Have a simple page on my website
- On that page I want to have a tt_news single view
- the news_id of this view should be static (set by me) and NOT by GET variables
We have a company with many departments. For every department we have a couple of subpages on our website. Now I want to add specific news to each of those department websites. Like: On the team management page I want to show the news with ID = XY.
Is there any way to get this working?
Best How To :
Insert the following lines to the setup field of an ext-template at the page where you want to display the selected news item in SINGLE view if no SINGLE view for another record was requested:
# hide the "no news id" message
# set the tt_news singlePid to the current page
plugin.tt_news.singlePid = 977
# fill the content of the main-column to a tmp.object
tmp.pagecontent < page.10.subparts.contentarea
# clear the content of the main column
# build a new object for this column as content-object-array
page.10.subparts.contentarea = COA
10 = CONTENT
10.table = tt_news
# insert the pids of all pages from where you want to fetch news.
# the recursive-field has no influence on this selection
pidInList = 25 # your pid
# orderBy = datetime desc
max = 1
# get element with news id 10 @zarathustra
where = tt_news.uid=10
# insert the object “10.” only if there is no SINGLE news selected
10.stdWrap.if.isFalse.data = GPvar:tx_ttnews|tt_news
# re-insert the normal pagecontent to the page
20 < tmp.pagecontent
