This documentation is not using the current rendering mechanism and is probably outdated.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.

4.2.0 - 2016/03/02


Thanks a lot to the sponsors of this release!

New features

This release contains mostly bugfixes but also some mentionable changes:

Support for dd_googlesitemap

The extension dd_googlesitemap can be used to generate sitemaps. An additional renderer can now generate sitemaps out of news records.

Predefine author

By using the PageTsConfig = 1 the author and the email address are prefilled in the news record by the data of the current backend user.

Important changes

The ViewHelper n:format.fileDownload has been marked as deprecated and will be removed with the next version. Instead of using this ViewHelper, just use the native implementation of FAL.

<f:for each="{newsItem.falRelatedFiles}" as="relatedFile">
            <span class="news-related-files-link">
                <a href="{relatedFile.originalResource.publicUrl -> f:format.htmlspecialchars()}" target="_blank">
                    {f:if(condition:relatedFile.originalResource.title, then:relatedFile.originalResource.title,}
            <span class="news-related-files-size">
                {relatedFile.originalResource.size -> f:format.bytes()}
