Overriding the FLUID templates

At TypoScript we have described the way content elements are rendered.

By default these settings are done in the file setup.txt which can be found in the folder EXT:fluid_styled_content/Configuration/TypoScript/.

Using lib.contentElement

This option gives you the possibility to add another templateRootPath and can be defined the same as partialRootPaths and layoutRootPaths:

lib.contentElement {
   templateRootPaths {
      200 = EXT:your_extension_key/Resources/Private/Templates/
   partialRootPaths {
      200 = EXT:your_extension_key/Resources/Private/Partials/
   layoutRootPaths {
      200 = EXT:your_extension_key/Resources/Private/Layouts/

A content element is using a templateName, which is defined in setup.txt. You can override this value, but the template from the extension “fluid_styled_content” will not be loaded then, since its name is still the default value.

tt_content {
   bullets {
      templateName = ChangedName
