What does it do?

  • ttnews_wtcart is a small extension which adds some new fields to tt_news. On the new tab “Product data” you can add price and tax information, enter a SKU and decide whether to display this article as product or not. This enables you to “transform” your tt_news items to products which can be checked out with the help of wt_cart.
  • Furthermore the extension configures tt_news and comes with an own HTML template. The HTML template is based on the default tt_news template and includes markers for the “add to cart” form and the net price, gross price and vat.
  • The extension assumes that you're using wt_cart as shopping cart and powermail for checkout.

What do you need?

  • Some experience in TypoScript, HTML and CSS.
  • Experience in setting up tt_news, wt_cart and powermail.
  • TYPO3 4.5.x and higher.
  • wt_cart 2.0.0 and higher.

Users manual

This module adds a new tab “Product data” to your tt_news record. Just create a new tt_news entry or edit an existing one. The picture below shows the new fields which are added by ttnews_wtcart.

You can decide whether to display the news entry as product or not. If you do not tick the checkbox no price information and “add to cart” form will be displayed. By default the checkbox is not active .

You can enter the gross price, select if a normal or reduced value added tax (V.A.T.) applies and add a SKU (stock keeping unit).

The shopping cart extension wt_cart will handle the values, i.e. you don't have to set up anything in ttnews_wtcart. After saving the product and refreshing the cache the new fields will be displayed in the frontend.

Install ttnews_wtcartwith Extension Manager

Open the extension manager, download the extension “ttnews_wtcart” and install it. If you haven't already installed tt_news and wt_cart (which depends on powermail) you'll be asked to do it during the installation process of wt_cart.

There are no additional settings you can change within the extension manager.

Include Static Template

Create a new extension template (TypoScript) or edit an existing one and include the static template of ttnews_wtcart. The static template configures wt_cart and tt_news for ttnews_wtcart. For tt_news the template file is changed to the included one of ttnews_wtcart.

TypoScript Constants

There are no TypoScript constants for ttnews_wtcart.
