CWT Community Typo3

What’s new in Community v1.1.x

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. ­čÖé

Hi Sebastian,

your Typo3 extension looks really interesting !
I am working on personal project for people who speak french and I want to provides them a space to publish their profiles.

I downloaded your extension(cwt_community) and tried to test it on EasyPHP (ver2.01), however I can not see any user in the Sysfolder(I previously created them)

The error message is :
Warning: mysql_fetch_assoc(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL result resource in C:\Program Files\EasyPHP 2.0b1\www\relais\t3lib\class.t3lib_db.php on line 809

I still continue to work on it but if you have few minutes to help me, I will appreciate it.


arrrrggg .. ok ok ! It was a small dependency problem…
Sorry for that : I installed CWT Frontend Edit + CWT Community Users and it is working now.
I continue to evaluate your extension.

Hi, I installed : cwt_feedit(V1.1.1), cwt_community (V1.1.1), cwt_community_user (V0.3.0).
Userlist mode does not work. When I call the page, I got these error reports:

Unknown column ‘u.tx_cwtcommunityuser_userlist_visibility’ in ‘where clause’
SELECT * FROM fe_users AS u WHERE NOT u.deleted=1 AND NOT u.disable=1 AND IN (85) AND ( (u.tx_cwtcommunityuser_userlist_visibility = 2) OR (u.tx_cwtcommunityuser_userlist_visibility = 1 AND u.uid IN (SELECT fe_users_uid FROM tx_cwtcommunity_buddylist AS b WHERE b.buddy_uid = 31)) ) ORDER BY ‘username’ asc
require#76 // tslib_fe->INTincScript#461 // tslib_fe->INTincScript_process#3012 // tslib_cObj->USER#3086 // tslib_cObj->callUserFunction#724 // call_user_func_array#5866 // tx_cwtcommunity_pi1->main# // tx_cwtcommunity_pi1->doGetUserlist#499 // tx_cwtcommunity_lib_common->doDatabaseQuery#1790 // t3lib_DB->sql#406 // t3lib_DB->debug#757

How to fix it. I have seen that the field tx_cwtcommunityuser_userlist_visibility is not in the fe_user table and it will be not created during installation.

Thank you very much for the support and also for this great plugin.

Best regards

Hi Carsten,

the column mentioned is part of the cwt_community_user. Please make sure that the extension is installed correctly. Maybe you should to try to uninstall and install it again. Check if the columns are added to the fe_user table during installation.


Hi Sebastian,
thanks for the extension and your recent update.
I’ve got on question: how do I navigate to the guestbook of other users? I don’t see any options.

One tip: perhaps you can set the dependencies for your other extensions so during install we get notified (I also struggled with the problem Carsten had)


Hi Pascal,
as the guestbook is a seperate plugin you can for example add it to the page containing the profile plugin. If the user enables his guestbook other user can see it when they view his profile.

The next community version will have the dependency settings.


Hallo Sebastian, ich bin zwar kein Profi, habe aber schon einige Typo3 Installationen laufen und komme soweit meist alleine klar (Bsp,,etc.) Jetzt bin ich dabei eine neue Seite zu machen ( und habe deine extension CWT Community installiert. Zuerst cwt_community_user, dann cwt_feedit und zum Schluss cwt_community_1.1.1, hab das Plugin auf der Welcome Seite installiert und bekommen jetzt folgende Fehlermeldungen:

Alles andere funktioniert prima, sieht aber halt nicht gut aus, solche Fehlermeldungen ├╝ber der Seite zu haben. Hast Du eine Idee?

Liebe Gr├╝sse Karl-Heinz


wenn man sich dir privaten Messages anschauen will kommt nur eine leere Seite.

Aufgerufene URL: index.php?id=151&action=getviewmessagessingle&msg_uid=2

Ansonsten funktioniert alles Board, Benachrichtigung ├╝ber den Erhalt neuer Messages.

Jemand eine Idee woran dies liegen k├Ânnte ??

Thx in advance TSE

@Sebastian Faulhaber

Also ich will ja nichts sagen, aber wenn der Server eine Fehlermeldung zur├╝ckgibt, dann hat das seinen Grund. N├Ąmlich dass es in der PHP-Codierung einen Fehler gibt. Zu empfehlen, diese Fehlermeldung einfach nur zu unterdr├╝cken, womit das eigentliche Problem ja nicht gel├Âst ist, finde ich etwas mager, und das vom Entwickler der Extension selbst…

Ich hab n├Ąmlich das selbe Problem mit den Warnings an genannter Stelle…

Hallo Stanley,

es handelt sich hierbei um Warnings, die die Funktion der Extension sehr wahrscheinlich nicht beeinflussen. Aus diesem Grund halte ich es f├╝r durchaus valide und kosteng├╝nstig, diese auszublenden.

Viele Gr├╝├če,

Ich hatte dasselbe Problem mit den Warnmeldungen auch. Habe es inzwischen wie hier beschriebeb unterdr├╝ckt und – au├čer das es die Errordatei zum├╝llt – gibt es keine direkten Probleme.

Allerdings wird dadurch das Errorlog auch unbrauchbar, weil man kaum richtige Fehler findet, wenn st├Ąndig die CWT-Fehlermeldungen dazwischen auftauchen. Das kann eigentlich nicht Sinn der Sache sein?

Gibt es denn keinen Weg, um die Fehlermeldungen durch ein Update der Extension ganz zu unterdr├╝cken, um damit das Errorlog wieder f├╝r wirkliche Fehlersuche gebrauchen zu k├Ânnen?


da der Autor keinen Wert auf eine Umstellung gelegt hat hab ich mich selber auf die Suche gemacht, Zeitaufwand ca 25min zur L├Âsungsfindung. Umsetzung 5min… wie dem auch sei, wen die L├Âsung interessiert kann sich gern bei mir melden. Nat├╝rlich auch der Autor der Extension ­čÖé

Gru├č Tino


ich bekomme auch die gleich Meldung und deine L├Âsung Tino w├╝rde mich sehr interessieren. K├Ânntest du mir die L├Âsung verraten?



Hallo Tino,
auch wenn Dein Post schon lange her ist – verr├Ątst Du die L├Âsung?
Denn das Ph├Ąnomen taucht noch immer auf …
Danke und einen fr├Âhlichen Abend!
