A new version of CWT Community has just been released. It mainly feature improvements to the userlist view. It now has an embedded (configurable) search box and a paging function. This will make the use of the plugin even more fun in larger communities. Please note that the separate search plugins have become deprecated, since you may achieve everything with the userlist now.
Since there have been changes to the userlist template, I recommend to check any existing userlist templates carefully before upgrading to this version. Thanks!
A new major version of CWT Community has just been released. Most of the changes have been made to the extension’s core: first of all the whole extension has been logically divided in different components (so one for the userlist, one for messaging capabilities etc.). Moreover the code will feel more like Model View Controller (MVC) than ever.
The second dramatic change is that the Community will completely rely on Smarty (see http://www.smarty.net/) templating from now on. With Smarty you will be able to customize the HTML templates in no time and can add new features without touching the code of the Community itself.
So most of the new features have been made to speed up the development of new custom Community websites and to MAKE YOUR LIFE EASIER! I hope you’ll enjoy the new version! 🙂

Some people are reporting problems with FE users that are being logged when accessing one of the pages that contain CWT Community. I could reproduce the problem locally and found a viable solution for most scenarios. In case your installation is affected by this error, please try to set the following Typoscript variable (in your root template or in an extension template for example):

The newest version of CWT Community has just been released. This version mainly consists of compatibility changes for Typo3 4.3. So, if you plan to update your Typo3 installation you should also install CWT Community V1.2.0.
Since CWT Community 1.1.x has been released a few days ago, I would like to give you some impressions on the new features.
The new version features a new view, that enables you users to send private messages to multiple recipients or to all of their buddies.
The private message will show up in the recipients inbox as before:
Another nice function is the newly created sorting function on the userlist page. Now, one may sort the Community users by any column ascending or descending. Of course, this function may also be used for your custom columns (see CUSTOM MARKER chapter in the official documentation).
Finally I’d like to highlight the enhanced privacy functions for your Community’s users. Each FE user is now able to control who may see their whole profile page. Additionally each FE user may hide itself from the userlist page.
I hope you enjoy the new version of CWT Community as much as I do. 🙂
It took some more weeks than expected to finish the work on CWT Community 1.1.0, but finally, it has just arrived in TER!
Besides a lot of bugfixes this brand new version of the Community has some new features as well. First of all I have added a new messaging view which enables users to send messages to multiple users and even to all of their buddies at once. Additionally the userlist view has a sorting option now and you may configure notification e-mails (that are sent, when a private message has arrived) and….a lot more cool stuff! 🙂
A new version of my Typo3 extension CWT Community has just been released. Version 1.0.4 only contains security fixes, so it will be absolutely safe to upgrade. The extension has been tested extensively and is a absolute must-have for your Typo3 extension.
