This documentation is not using the current rendering mechanism and is probably outdated. The extension maintainer should switch to the new system. Details on how to use the rendering mechanism can be found here.

Administrator Manual


After installing the extension you only need to take care to put the template of the additional view into the correct directory.

If you use the default templates of EXT:news

If you are using the default templates of the news extension and haven’t adopted those at all, all you need to do is using this TypoScript:

plugin.tx_news {
  view {
        templateRootPaths {
                0 = {$plugin.tx_news.view.templateRootPath}
                1 = EXT:eventnews/Resources/Private/Templates/

Using your own templates

If you are using your own templates, just copy the template EXT:eventnews/Resources/Private/Templates/Month.html into the same directory where also the files like List.html or Detail.html are saved.


The following TypoScript options are available:


New news records as event

By using the following code block in the Page TsConfig it is possible to hide the checkbox “Is event” and have new news records created as event:

tx_news.newRecordAsEvent = 1
TCEFORM.tx_news_domain_model_news.is_event {
  disabled = 1
