Re: Farewell, TemplaVoila!

Dmitry decided to leave the TemplaVoilà project today and he handed the extension-leadership to me. Since this is a very abrupt change and since there was lot’s of (mis)communication involved I’d like to use this blogpost to answer his “Farewell, TemplaVoila!” post (he turned off the commenting function). As you might know Steffen Kamper and I joined the TemplaVoilà team some time ago and since Dmitry wasn’t very motivated to maintain the extension anymore, we took over and tried to make TemplaVoilà ready for TYPO3 4. ...

Debugging mod_rewrite... my favorite way

Once a month someone is asking because he has issues to get his mod_rewrite rules to do what he want’s. Writing the rules and the required RegEx for these rules is quite easy, but Apache still behaves strange every now and then and that’s where one of my favorite ways to “debug” mod_rewrite comes in very handy. And I felt that writing something is better than having a silent blog ;) ... Read more

imagemap_wizard 0.5.3

Last Sunday I’ve released the first official stable version of my imagemap_wizard extension (TER). I though that’s a good moment to review the introduction text on the project-homepage and that’s how it looks like - Especially due to the missing/broken TER download counter I’m still not sure whether the work was worth it. I hope some marketing and the given information about all the cool featutes is enough for newbees and TYPO3 pro’s. ... Read more
