About 3 months ago I started on an updated version of my blog. I wanted it to be state of the art, so back then I started on some beta of 4.4. Now 3 months later, just when I was about to launch my updated blog, I was a little surprised by an automated notice inside my TYPO3 backend. which asked me to please donate.
Have no fear!
Don't worry, the message is only displayed when an administrator is logged in. So normally, if you set up your editors correctly, the will never see this. Next to that, you are able to disable it in the Install Tool.
Or simply by adding the following line to your localconf.php inside the typo3conf folder.
- $TYPO3_CONF_VARS['BE']['allowDonateWindow'] = '0';
$TYPO3_CONF_VARS['BE']['allowDonateWindow'] = '0';
Now I agree with the fact that you can make it clear to people that they can help TYPO3 grow by donating. After all it is free open source CMS that allows you to rapidly create cool new websites. However I don't really agree with the idea of a 'Nag' box. I think the approach is a little too aggressive. Of course I'm not here to complain and nag about this, just to start a discussion ;-). So what do you think, fund-raising for the TYPO3 project like this? A do or a don't?
What do you think of this new 'feature' in TYPO3 4.4?
