In some cases we may need to get an old TYPO3 extension, this may be for several reasons.
In order to do this, we can follow any of the following methods:
- Go to http://www.typo3.org/extensions then search for your extension, say tt_news
- Just copy yhe download link of the t3x file, and now my link looked as below: http://typo3.org/fileadmin/ter/t/t/tt_news_3.0.1.t3x
- We need the version 2.5.2, so change the version number of above URL to as follows:
This is one way, the other way is when we use the update manager within TYPO3 BE, we get a drop down to select the version, and load it’s detail. Then we can install/update the necessary version. Sometimes the drop down may not have the needed version, so Method 1 may work in such cases!
Most extensions were also under version control on typo3 forge, even here we can get the old files. We may however get some files/updates/changes that were not really published to the Extension Repository. So this may be slightly risky as well. Generally the first two methods are much more easier.
