Reviews > catalog 0.3.5
Powerful and versatile
Very flexible, can be adapted to any need
Lots of parts involved, so it isn't for beginners.
The Catalog and Catalog Extension are both extremely powerful additions to any TYPOlight installation where data needs to be shown in a master / detail list. This extension is very flexible in that you can format the frontend output in any way you would like. The Catalog Extension has a Filter module that allows for entries to be searched, sorted and filtered. The modules for Recommended and Reference are also powerful additions, which mimic the "recommended products" feature often seen on e-commerce websites. While templating frontend output can be challenging at first, Thyon has provided an excellent tutorial in the TYPOlight wiki. You can see my implementation of the Catalog / Extension at http://www.whitakeroil.com/products-chemicals.html
