CONTENTMIDDLE subpartΒΆ

This will be very similar to what we did for CONTENTRIGHT. We will use a CONTENT object:

CONTENTMIDDLE = CONTENT

and benefit from the objects already existing in the static template from "CSS Styled Content", i.e.:

// Middle column (labeled "normal")
styles.content.get
// Left column
styles.content.getLeft
// Right column
styles.content.getRight
// Border column
styles.content.getBorder

For CONTENTMIDDLE we want to display the content which corresponds to the column called "normal" in the page module of the TYPO3 CMS backend. Hence the object to copy is styles.content.get:

CONTENTMIDDLE = CONTENT
CONTENTMIDDLE < styles.content.get

Again these two lines are enough. This is all that we need to get our content out of the database and into our page!

Here you again have the complete code for the subpart CONTENTMIDDLE:

////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
//
// Subpart CONTENTMIDDLE
//
////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

// The subpart CONTENTMIDDLE outputs the content of the middle column
CONTENTMIDDLE = CONTENT
// Needs the static template from css_styled_content
// to be included in this template record.
CONTENTMIDDLE < styles.content.get

This was the last subpart, which we had to configure. All marks already are configured as well. So now all marks and subparts get replaced. When you viewed your web site some steps earlier (when we created the menus), you could already navigate through the site (the URLs changed), but there was only dummy text and no real content. This has changed now.
