Feature of the week: Thumbnails and download documents with TYPO3 extension BibSonomy CSL

Last week we released version 1.3 of the TYPO3 extension BibSonomy CSL. With this new version, come a lot of new features for displaying publication lists on TYPO3 webpages.

The main new feature is a way to share documents that are attached to publication posts. Further, you can also have thumbnails (magnified by mouseover) of the document displayed in publication lists. Therefor you've got a new set of options in TYPO3's backend to select your preferred way to display your publications.

If a publication has no attached documents, instead of a thumbnail an icon depicting the publication type is shown (the same ones you already know from BibSonomy' web page).


Another new feature is the possibility to sort publications by title, publication type, and authors. To setup the advanced sorting options we have created a new own tab for sorting and ordering.

For the Tag Cloud Plugin we have added a blacklist to filter tags, \e.g. tags that help you in managing you posts but which you would not neccessarily want to be displayed on your home page. Additionally, you can filter the tags by defining a set of related tags.

You can download BibSonomy CSL extension from the TYPO3 repository: http://typo3.org/extensions/repository/view/ext_bibsonomy_csl
If you interested in the source code you can visit the development repository on Bitbucket at https://bitbucket.org/bibsonomy/bibsonomy-typo3-csl.
