The following issues are known problems. However those are either not fixable inside EXT:news or not too easy to solve!
Category images on root page¶
Due to restrictions of the File Abstraction Layer (FAL), it is not possible to add images to categories which are saved on the root page (uid 0). Documented at http://forge.typo3.org/issues/57515
The strategy of Extbase is currently quite simple. First records are fetched and afterwards an overlay is added to get the correct translated data. Problems can be:
sorting by a translated field is not possible
Translation of FAL records, see https://forge.typo3.org/issues/57272
Extbase does not fully support DBAL, therefore it might be that things fail!
Versioning & Workspaces¶
It is not possible to create a version in the frontend by Extbase. As long as the versioning happens in the backend, everything should be fine.
