Hi Cate, and everyone else,
thanks so much for your kind help, it is really very much appreciated!!
Indeed, I have made a lot of progress thanks to your support. I have
read or at least skimmed through all the info and tuts vailable on the
main site and I've managed to make a template and build a small sample site:
(Don't worry about the design, this is just the layout I used for my
personal blog, ewhat matters here is funcionality :)) This is about 12
hours work starting with Typo3 from scratch.
2 questions I have:
1) Naigation: Is there any way I can rip out submenus and place them
elsewhere. For Example, on the page above, could I have the links to
Information a, b and c in an horizontal menu across the top. In other
words can I specify blocks in the hierachy and pplace them somewhere else?
2) I have now created this template. However it's a bit of a mess, lots
of TypoScript. Is there any way I can now define this as one of the
predefined templates, like "Business" and "Candidate" so that I can just
choose this from the dropdown list instead of copying and pasting
endless lines of TypoScript? If i prepare this for a customer I can't
really expect him to be able to handle templates this way himself...
oh ... and a third question :)
3) When i was presented Typo3 by a friend I was sure that he was editing
the pages themselves. Meaning: He was seeing the entire page in his
viewport and directly edited the information in there (text, images
etc). Is this a plugin? I do not mean just clicking "view", I'm sure it
looked different, basically like a wysiwyg editor built into Typo3.
Many thanks again to all who have helped me. You can be sure I'll be
back for more. I have a feeling I can accomplish many things with Typo3
but that I will need to ask a lot of questions to get there :)
It is definitely a lot less accessible than any other platfrom I have
ever used, like WordPress or MovableType, PhpBB and other template
