Enhanced TYPO3 save buttons 2.0.1

Enhanced TYPO3 save buttons (EXT:unroll)

This extension for TYPO3 CMS 7+ adds options to TYPO3's save buttons:

  • unroll them from dropdown
  • just display icons (for each button)
  • change the button order

It is an enhanced version of EXT:rx_unrollsavebuttons with more functionality, like reordering the buttons. The original extension rx_unrollsavebuttons became obsolete and Markus Klein, author of this extension, joined development of EXT:unroll.
