Selects a catalog entry based on the actual page
This extension can be used to integrate catalog content into usual pages. This requires a field in the catalog which referrs to a Contao page.
The new module needs a table and field as configuration. It searches the entry in the catalog which referrs to that actual page and sets its ID for the catalog reader. (The catalog reader has to be included seperate.) This can be used to show some fields from a catalog entry on normal pages. The fieldname ist lanugae dependend: $LANG will be replaced by the actual page language.
Note: The column in the catalog should be q forced field and unique. makign it unique is requested as new option in the catalog ticket #151. Until this is implemented, use the following entry in system/config/dcaconfig.php for each reference field:
$GLOBALS['TL_DCA']['tablename']['fields']['columnname']['eval']['unique'] = true;
