TYPO3 6.2 content image in Typoscript

Here are a few lines of TypoScript code that really took me a long time to get to. In TYPO3 4.x, I would fetch an image which is inserted on a certain page as a normal content element (CE) and use it for example as an site wide header image. In this example, the image…

TYPO3 sys_category bug after upgrade from 6.1 to 6.2

After a recent update from TYPO3 6.1 to 6.2 on a site that makes use of the new sys_category function, I noticed a strange behaviour: Even though categories were shown in the front end and, if viewed with the list tool in the backend, also showed as defined, they were not selected on their according…

Notes from the trench: Updating a TYPO3 4.5 installation to version 6.2

What is this about? Currently I'm in the process of updating a fairly simple website from the now outdated "Long Time Version" 4.5 to it's successor, 6.2. Since I consider myself as not-the-top-notch-but-not-so-dumb kind of TYPO3 maintainer, and I ran in some issues that surprised me (and I didn't find answers right away), maybe someone…

I'd so like to have this as a stand for my Wacom Intuos pen, even better if the toy soldier figure was actually a civilian, nerd-type run-of-the-mill illustrator-kind-of-person. Hey 3D printers of the world, can we make that happen? Title inspired by a James Victore sticker; image/montage by me

Good. :-) I now have the ability to use different layouts for different kinds of posts, like "video", "image" or "status" - there are…

Fiddling with the Indie Web, pt4

Wow, Steward Langridge, inventor of the pingback mechanism, has enabled webmentions on his blog, as he tweeted just a couple of hours ago. I think this is great signal for the webmention idea, and reminds me to keep on tweaking the webmention/indie web thing here in my blog, where I have the comfort of using…

3D Cube in CSS

CSS - Cascading Style Sheets - has come a long way from being the "paint" on HTMLs structure. In the relativly short span of one afternoon I was able to create a threedimensional cube, that, with a little help of some JavaScript glued onto some input fields, can be rotated along its X-, Y-, and…

Enhance progressively

progressive enhancement is not about offering all functionality; progressive enhancement is about making sure that your core functionality is available to everyone. Everything after that is, well, an enhancement (the clue is in the name). Jeremy Keith It is more often than not that I find myself in discussions about this exact point: I want…

Babysteps in IndieWeb, pt3

Next up is the test if I can pull in comments from silos like Facebook or Twitter back to the blog post that got shared there. Let's raise the voodoo bar a bit now… this on twitter
