[Neos] Help with some typoscript

Hey Nick

Just had a quick look at it and it looks like you’re not specifying which property from the Headline and Text element you want to slice. You only get the actual node.

I think it should be something like:
teaserHeadline = ${q(teaserTargetNode).children('column0').children('[instanceof TYPO3.Neos.NodeTypes:Headline]').first().get(0).property(’title’)} or without the .get(0) can’t remember

teaserText= ${q(teaserTargetNode).children('column0').children('[instanceof TYPO3.Neos.NodeTypes:Text]').first().property(’text’)} again .get(0) or not here..

I’d also suggest that you make use of Fluid when cropping the text instead of the slice helper since it doesn’t have nice features like adding an ellipsis if cropped or respect for html tags.

<f:if condition=“{teaserHeadline}”><f:then>{teaserHeadline}</f:then><f:else>{teaserText -> f:format.crop(maxCharacters: 400)}</f:else></f:if>
