Adding javascript: in href using TYPO3 RTE

The link wizard is a great tool for normal TYPO3 user to add link (internal, external, or email link). But what if a javascript function needs to be triggered manually by clicking a link? you can make an onClick event listener to achieve this. But in RTE you can also adds javascript:someFunction(); as href parameter.

To do this, switch to text mode in RTE by clicking the <> button and put your link manually. Following parameters need to be added manually:

so should the link looks like

Fail downloading file on Android

How hard is it, to write a PHP script to allow user to download a file? really easy, one would say. Just send the appropriate HTTP header and echo the file content.

Basically that’s all I need to force download per PHP. But somehow Android stock browser (Chrome) only downloads and creates a 0 kB file. Other browser (tested with Firefox on Android) saves the file correctly.

What does happen here?

Extbase and RealURL

another day, another problem. Extbase is becoming main framework for TYPO3 extension, because it’s really easy to create a frontend plugin to show (listing or detail view) of a records. Since it’s MVC framework, Extbase create a complex URL for each record.


http://domain.tld/pageName/?tx_extension_plugin[action]=show&tx_extension_plugin[controller]=controllerName&tx_extension_pluginName[param]=9

how to short this?

add class to link in RTE

It’s might be a simple problem, but yet it’s really hard to find the correct solution. Although the solution is a simple one.

Using any of the CSS frameworks out there, you can easily create a button, even from a link, just by adding a class. The problem is, how you can put this class in RTE, so that the editor can easily choose which button class should be used.

redirect URL to lowercase

Using the realurl extension TYPO3 generate human-readable URL. If the visitor visits the page using uppercase of the URL, TYPO3 can generate the page (HTTP 200). if a search bot (Google) found this URL and indexed it, Google will declare the page as “double content” and punishes your page rank. How do we deal with this? Continue reading redirect URL to lowercase

[TYPO3] Redirect to last page

Problem of the week:

you have a password protected pages on your TYPO3 site. If you spread the URL of the pages and other user will be shown the login page, if they call the URL. Problem will be, after logging in, the user is not redirected to the last page, which they call.

The felogin extension of TYPO3 supports 6 type of redirect after login:

  1. defined by usergroup record
  2. defined by user record
  3. TypoScript or Flexform of the felogin extension
  4. GET/POST-Parameter
  5. Referer
  6. Domain entries

The solution is the “referer” redirection. The question is how. This is where we use the fabulous TypoScript.

This TypoScript creates a redirect per meta tag (see wrap), but to which URL. The magic happens in the typolink function. xxx is your login page. The GET parameter “referer” will have the value of the last page, which the user visited.

The magic does not end here. You have to set to “referer” redirect in the flexform of the felogin extension.

felogin

so that’s all.. hope this could be help.
