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.

FAQ

Ist der Preis einmalig fällig?

Ja, der Preis ist nur einmal fällig.

Ja, mit der Pro-Version können beliebige Inhaltselemente hinterlegt werden. Das können bspw. auch HTML-Elemente sein, die ein Youtube-Embed enthalten.

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 .

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.

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.

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!
