The content elements¶
This chapter will describe the basic set of content elements provided by the TYPO3 CMS core. It will show you a description, screenshots of the backend fields and a screenshot of the frontend rendering, only styled with the basic styling provided by the static template “Content Elements CSS (optional) (fluid_styled_content)” described in chapter Using the rendering definitions.
The screenshots of the fields are made with the extension configuration option “Show only a minimum set of editing fields” SET TO OFF as described in chapter Configuration.
These are fields which are used by (almost) every content element.
Almost every content element can contain a header, which consists of the following parts:
- The text of the header
- The type of heading (heading 1, heading 2, heading 3 … or if the header is hidden). When not choosing an option, the default heading will be used, which can be configured at Constant Editor.
- Have the possibility to group the header with a date
- Link wrapping the header text. This can be a TYPO3 CMS page, an external page, an email address or a link to a file.
The header fields can be found in the “General” tab of a content element.
These fields define if and when a visitor has access to this content element. The access fields all reside in the Access tab:
- Visibility of content element
- By checking this option the content element will not be visible to any visitor.
- Publish Date
- The date on which the content has to be published, which means making visible at a certain date.
- Expiration Date
- The date on which the content will be expired, which means the content will be hidden on a certain date
- Usergroup Access Rights
- Here you can select whether the content element only is available to a certain frontend user group, if it has to be visible only when the visitor is logged in or if it has to be hidden at a login.
