Import the ExtBase and the Fluid Template Engine into Typo3 4.5

TIP: For an easier creation, management and reuse of TYPO3 Fluid-Templates, I recommend using the Fluid-Template-Manager (short FTM).

Notice: This Post are the second part of Create a complete Typo3 website by using the Fluid Template Engine

To be able to use Fluid within Typo3 4.5, we must install the Extension named ‘fluid’. ‘fluid’ itself is dependent on the Extension ‘extbase’, so we must install the ‘extbase’ Extension first.

In order for that we have to do the following steps within the Typo3 Backend:
1. Navigate to “ADMIN TOOLS’ -> ‘Extension Manager’ (show image)
2. Navigate in the topmost select box to ‘Import Extensions’
3. Search about ‘extbase’ (show image)
4. Install the ‘extbase’ by clicking on the brick stone (show image)
5. In the next step, click ‘make all updates’

So, when you get the message ‘The extension “extbase” has been installed.’ we can continue with the fluid extension:
7. Navigate once again in the topmost select box to ‘Import Extensions’
8. Search about ‘fluid’ (show image)
9. Install the ‘fluid’ by clicking on the brick stone (show image)

That’s it. If you become again the message ‘The extension “fluid” has been installed.’ you have successfully integrate the Fluid Template Engine. 😉
