With the News Overview plugin, the TYPO3 system generates a simple teaser list of all blog posts. This tool can also be used to generate filterable teasers, which can be sorted by news categories and tags. Use this content element to provide your readers with an overview of available posts and to allow easy sorting.
Group news pages in tabs by
The generated teasers can be grouped according to various criteria. The following options are available here:
- No grouping: The teasers cannot be filtered and are sorted by the selected rules.
- Categories: You see the default setting of the plugin. However, this does not refer to the system categories that can be found in the list module, but to the news categories that are created in the News module. A post can only be assigned to one category.
- Tags: News tags are created like system categories in the List module with the list element Category. In contrast to the system categories, the news tags of the website base are located in the 'Blog' page, on the subpages of which the news and news categories are stored. Tags are not assigned to a specific news category. An article can carry several tags.
Only selected categories are displayed in the tabs. If no category is selected, articles of all categories are available in the frontend.
Enable filtering by criteria that are not grouped in tabs
This option allows an additional filter to be shown, which enables multidimensional filtering. For example, if you have chosen to group by category and activate this option, a page visitor can switch teasers by the categories in the tabs. At the same time a drop down menu is available to filter by tags. If you selected no grouping, both categories and tags are generated as a drop-down menu when the option is activated.
Max. number of news
Here you can define the maximum number of teasers that can be shown.
Include only news subpages of the page containing this overview
If a check mark is set here, it means that only subpages of the current page are used for teasers. News that are located in other page branches are not displayed. If the option is not activated, all news will be considered for the generation of teasers.
