TYPO3 is an enterprise-class, open source content management system, used to build and manage websites of all types. One of the great things about TYPO3 is that one can add new types of content elements fairly easily. Say, for instance, a feedback button for your visitors and customers. We are working on a plugin, but in the meantime, here are the needed steps to include Usersnap – the visual bug tracker for web development – into your Typo3 site:
- Log into your backend
- Left Menu: Click on “Template”
- Select your start page (earth icon)
- Select “Info/Modify” in the Dropdown menu of the template
- Click on the edit button next to setup (pencil icon) – it’s the last entry in the table
- A editor opens, insert this code (with your Usersnap snippet) at the end:
page.footerData.9999 = TEXT
var s = document.createElement("script");
s.async = true;
s.src = '//api.usersnap.com/load/'+
var x = document.getElementsByTagName('script');
Make sure your Usersnap snippet is inserted between the two parentheses
page.footerData.9999.value. The snippet (and the tools available under the feedback button) can be customized using the Usersnap configurator.
Next time you’ll open your Typo3 page, you’ll notice the feedback button. Make sure to try it out and send an annotated screenshot to your inbox (or to the project management / customer service tool, you’ve selected in your Usersnap dashboard). Nifty, huh?
