The news plugin is used to output a defined list of records.
It can be added to create a content element with the type Plugin and by selecting the plugin type News system.
The available actions are:
The list action displays a list of defined records. The filters can be defined either in the plugin or by using TypoScript and are described here.
2 different list modes are available.
If a plugin is configured to show this implementation of the list action, it will change its behaviour if the URL contains a link to a detail action! If this is fulfilled, the detail action will be shown instead of the list action.
List view (without overloading detail view)¶
The described behaviour of the first implementation might not be desired all the time. A typical example is to show a list view in the sidebar of a detail view page. If the above action would be used, the detail view would be shown in the sidebar too.
List of articles¶
Show a specific list of articles
There are 2 typical use cases for this action:
Use this action to show a full news record which is linked by a list view.
Provide a specific news record to output that one. This is very useful to embed a news record e.g. in a newsletter.
The search result action is based on the list action including an additional filter provided by the search form.
