TYPO3 extension sf_event_mgt version 3.0 released

Today I finally released the new version 3.0 of my TYPO3 extension sf_event_mgt - Event management and registration. The new version comes with tons of new features, bugfixes and improvements and also contains 2 breaking changes, so make sure to read the release notes.

Thanks to everyone, who contributed to the extension over the last few months. Also a special thanks to Alex Kellner for his extension powermail, from which I adapted ideas and some code for the registration fields feature.


New features 

Below follows some of the new features of sf_event_mgt 3.0.

Registration fields

Im order to make the extension more easy to use for non-programmers, I added the possibility for editors add additional registration fields to the default registration form on event basis.

Registration fields
Creating of registration fields works basically as in powermail. The user can add registrations fields in a new tab as shown in the screenshot above and choose one of the following field types: input, textarea, radio and checkbox.  When a participant registers to an event, all filled out registration fields are saved to the registration record in the TYPO3 backend.



allowLanguageSynchronization for TYPO3 8.7

The TCA settings allowLanguageSynchronization has been introduced in TYPO3 8.6 and is the successor for "l10n_mode=mergeIfNotBlank". Note, that sf_event_mgt did not use "l10n_mode=mergeIfNotBlank", so the language synchronization feature is only available in TYPO3 8.7



Signals

Finally, I also added signals in various actions, so it is now easily possible to modify/extend variables given to the desired views.
