Creating Dealer Records¶
In the TYPO3 Backend, select the List module.
In the page tree, select the folder where you would like to store your dealer records.
In the DocHeader, click on the + (Create new record) button.
The New record screen will appear, showing a tree with new record types.
In the record tree, click on Dealer (under Pxa Dealers).
You will now see the Create new Dealer form.
Fill in the necessary fields in the Create new Dealer form.
Here’s a description of the record’s fields apart from those you should know from other TYPO3 records.
- Name (required)
The unique name of the Dealer. E.g. “Big Machine Parts, Inc.”, “Small Stuff (Smalltown)”, or “Smalltown Mall”. Use the business name if your Dealers are single businesses, but add location if your Dealers are parts of a chain. If all Dealers are part of the same chain, you can also use the location name.
Upload a logo for the Dealer. A well-know logo is easier to spot in a list of Dealers.
- Show street view
When enabled, a Google Street View image of the Dealer’s address will be displayed in the map marker’s information pop-up.
Select the country where the Dealer is located.
- Address (required)
The street address of the Dealer. E.g. “123 Main street”
- City (required)
