This extension can also be installed traditionally via the TYPO3 Extension Repository (TER).

Fluid Template

Configuration Section

All templates must contain a special fluid section with the template configuration in XML format.

Example configuration:

<f:section name="configuration">
    <configuration>
        <general>
            <layoutName>My awesome template</layoutName>
        </general>
        <backendLayout>
            <row>
                <column pos="0" colspan="2">Full width</column>
            </row>
            <row>
                <column pos="1">50% Width Left</column>
                <column pos="2">50% Width Right</column>
            </row>
            <row>
                <column pos="3" colspan="2">Some more content</column>
            </row>
        </backendLayout>
    </configuration>
</f:section>

The template configuration is located within the "configuration" fluid section.
The configuration is in XML format.

The configuration has one root element configuration. Within that element you can specify general configuration and the backendLayout.
Within general you can set the name of the template. This name will be used as the display value of the select field in the page settings.

Whitin backendLayout you can configure the backend layout of this template. The example above should be self explanatory. The content of the column elements is the label for that section.

Please note that the content of <f:section name="configuration"> must be valid XML!

Rest of the template

The rest of the template is just standard fluid. You can specify as many sections as you like and of course set the layout of the template.

It is recommended to use the FluidTYPO3 VHS extension to easily render the columns.

The configuration of the current page can be accessed via the page fluid variable.

Sidenotes

The creation of this extension was heavily inspired by FluidTYPO3's fluidpages extension.
