Insert Plugin (List)

Plugins correspond to the list-type content element (the “list” meaning the list of all plugins). The exact type of plugin used by a given list-type content element is stored in the list_type field of the “tt_content” table.

Thus for rendering the list-type content element is one big t3tsref:cobj-case object using the list_type field as key. When plugins are registered, the appopriate code is automatically added to this main t3tsref:cobj-case object so that rendering requests can be dispatched to the plugin’s class.

Configuration of the plugin itself resides in plugin.[extension signature]. Some very old plugins however (like “tt_board”) are still registered “manually” by including all their configuration in a top-level object.
