The TYPO3 website has been developed responsive and is able to dynamically adapt to different screen resolutions. The Provinzial Newsroom, in addition to the usual desktop computers, is also accessible for tablets and smartphones. A specially developed Open Graph import extension can import articles of any news site and portal in TYPO3 and imports these to the news extension. If a third-party website doesn't follow the open graph standard, the extension offers various fallback routines to ensure the import of the article. Due to the large amount of possible programmings and plattforms a special control module for the Open Graph import was also developed. With this module portal editors can simply "click and save" a certain ruleset for a website. The rules are stored for further articles of this news website.
