TYPO3 Advent Calendar
Online-Advent Calendar Extension for TYPO3 - with optional Competition-Feature.
Our TYPO3 Advent Calendar extension is exactly the right tool for your customers to countdown to Christmas! The extension is an easy-to-integrate advent calendar that comes with five standard Christmas themes.
Simply choose the best theme for your company and benefit from many useful features, such as animated snow falling across the calendar display and content hidden behind doors. Content types include simple text-image combinations, text only, image only and, of course, forms that can be used for various purposes.
The basic version also allows you to measure the success of your calendar by means of dedicated click tracking - this can be setup for the calendar as a whole or just for individual doors.
And if this basic functionality is not enough for your needs, use the Pro version! The Pro version provides additional functionality including door content from previous days is still visible, the possibility to add competitions behind doors and user registration so that users can keep up-to-date with new competitions.

Which TYPO3 versions is the advent calendar compatible with?
We always try to keep the advent calendar extension compatible with the current TYPO3-LTS version. Thus, the extension is currently compatible with TYPO3 versions 7.6. up to 10.4 .
Is the TYPO3 Advent Calendar responsive?
The calendar is responsive - on large displays, for example, 6-4 doors are displayed in a row. On smaller displays this goes down to two doors next to each other. More responsive behavior can easily be added using CSS media queries.
Is it possible to use the online advent calendar without TYPO3 installed?
Yes, it is possible. In that case, we would host your online advent calendar instance in a separate TYPO3 installation and you can then easily integrate this into your website via iframe.
Does the advent calendar collect statistics?
The advent calendar contains a counter that counts how many times the Advent calendar and each door is clicked on. If you need more detailed information, Google Analytics tracking can also be used.
Please note that the advent calendar does not count any hits in simulation mode!
