News meanwhile is the elementary content what’s mostly requested or provided. In a short form you want to know or to tell, what’s new, has changed or more general, what’s up? Important is – surprise, surprise – that a news is new. Older ones must be still available but not directly on landing page. Really old ones belong to a (hidden) archive.
A news will use text, but more important images to be catchy, fast and good understandable. In particular good images say more than 1000 words. Related links, attached documents or an additional report can provide more additional information. Sometimes a news has a relationship to a past or upcoming event part of a calendar.
Our typo3 plugin is based on our MotoGo Lib and in consequence inherits its full potential. In our base version following features are implemented and directly usable:
In case listed features aren't enough, it’s simple to add own news entry fields or verifications. Also, it’s simple to extend the base functionality with own actions alias functionalities. The simplicity of the MotoGo Lib ensures that it’s a matter of few configuration changes or additional lines of code.
Moreover, for all frontend output pure CSS, jquery mobile as well as bootstrap layout can be used. Whereby it poses no problem to use two layouts in one solution if necessary. Thus the news teaser list view can be part of a jquery page, even though the news management is performed in a separate bootstrap environment.
Time to have a glance to our game changing teaser news list.
